Ten more actors have been added to the cast of the comedy sequel, Harold and Kumar 2 for Mandate Pictures and New Line Cinema.
Eric Winter has already been mentioned; David Krumholtz, Neil Patrick Harris, Christopher Meloni, Paula Garces, and Eddie Kaye Thomas are reprising their roles with newcomers Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, Jack Conley, Roger Bart and Danneel Harris coming in for the sequel.
In the film, John Cho (Harold) and Kal Penn (Kumar)pick up this film on the same morning that Harold and Kumar finally satisfy their munchies at White Castle and the object of Harold's affection, Maria (Garces), sets off for Amsterdam. The Hollywood Reporter adds the pair decide to pursue her so Harold can proclaim his love. But when an overzealous passenger mistakes Kumar for a terrorist, the plane is diverted and the boys are off on a new escapade of mistaken identity. From Guantanamo Bay through the Deep South, Harold and Kumar encounter myriad wackos, jerks and whores as they are pursued by the Department of Homeland Security all the way into Bush Country.
Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are writing and directing Harold and Kumar 2; shooting began last week in Shreveport, Louisiana.
