Cheech and Chong are reuniting for new tour



Tbdcheechchong073108 Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have decided to tour one more time before the pair are totally cashed, the duo says. It will be their first comedy tour together in more than 25 years.

Marin told AP Radio that he and Chong "looked at each other going, 'If we're ever going to do something it has to be now because you're not getting any younger and neither am I.' "

The pair have tried to reunite several times after breaking up over creative differences (really, how much weed can you smoke and still be friends?), but always ended up fighting. But the "Hey, What's That Smell Tour" will be different.

"It takes about 3 minutes for that to happen. There's this veiled hatred," Cheech said. "We've kind of resolved that. We've gotten to the age where we don't feel like fighting anymore because the end is a lot closer than the beginning."

Meanwhile, Robert Rodriguez is busy looking for a character actor to play several roles in his movies.

And in more old-guy news:

Ed McMahon, 85, has been sued by a divorce attorney he had hired for his daughter for allegedly not paying $275,168 in fees, Reuters reports. To be fair, Ed was busy not paying his mortgage with that money.

Jerry Lewis, 82, was cited at the Las Vegas airport for carrying a gun in his luggage (his manager claimed it was a prop) when trying to board a flight to Detroit, the AP says. What happened to keeping things in Vegas?
