NYC COMIC CON 08: Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Three exclusive clips were shown and I don't want to give too much away, however there are plenty of spoilers in the videos below, but my favorite parts were when Rob Corddry, the Homeland Security agent, racistly referred to Harold as Hello Kitty and the KKK mistake them for Mexicans. Here are a few snippets of the panel that I noted:
+ They wanted to pick up where they left off, so the movie starts literally an hour after they get back from White Castle.
+ Apparently a scene from Raging Bull inspired the scene where Kal humps a bag of weed in the first film. The bag of weed will reappear in this sequel.
+ Corddry is thought of as the most racist character since Mississippi Burning and manages to insult every race. But you'll also get to see Harold and Kumar show a little of their prejudices.
+ Neil first heard of the script from a friend who was auditioning and had read Harris' name in it. He was like, "Oh, it's not good"--as in, they make you look like a perv. Harris immediately sought the script out and thought it was hilarious.

Neil Patrick Harris, Kal Penn, and the creators of Harold & Kumar give away a few spoilers:

Here they talk about pranks that were done on set:
