OPC: Way Ahead of the Curve

In today's New York Times, in an article about the upcoming film Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay (which all of us here at OPC are most excited about), the co-writer and co-director Jon Hurwitz describes the H&K worldview thusly: "Race matters to the other characters, but not to Harold and Kumar."

Clearly, Mr. Hurwitz, as befits a member of the cognoscenti, has been reading OPC, for it was only a few months ago that we wrote: "It's fascinating to see the way Harold and Kumar's ethnicity, their Asian-ness, seems to be of primary importance to everyone else in the movie, to everyone except Harold and Kumar themselves, who couldn't seem to care less."
