"I think most importantly, Harold and Kumar is seen in many different ways. It’s to some people a buddy comedy; to others, it’s an art comedy; to others, it’s an Asian-American film. But to me, the most important issue is that there are two Asian leads in that movie, and it’s an American comedy. People don’t even realize how extraordinary that is, considering when I came into town, there was a very strong prejudice against Asians being in comedies. They said Asians aren’t funny, they’re not a funny race, they can’t make jokes. And for a trilogy, at this point, to be completed with Asians as the leads, is a remarkable social achievement, in my opinion."
