Preem sates munchies

Crowd chows down at 'White Castle' bow

Everyone got high on laughs at Tuesday’s Chinese Theater preem of New Line’s stoner comedy “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.”

At the Annex after-bash, cravings were satiated with onion rings, fries and burgers, courtesy of the titular fast-food restaurant.

Kal Penn said he did do some research to get into his character, but nothing involving munchies. “I don’t smoke weed or eat red meat, but for the scene where I perform surgery, I spent two days at the UCLA library researching gunshot” wounds, he said.

Neil Patrick Harris did even less preparation to play a spoof version of himself. “It was surprisingly easy,” he quipped. “No method acting required.”

Also on hand were New Line’s Russell Schwartz, Rolf Mittweg, Toby Emmerich, executive producer Luke Ryan and producer Greg Shapiro. Guests included Drew Carey and Robert Downey Jr.
