Cheech Marin says there may very well be a Cheech & Chong reunion in fan’s futures. The 67-year-old actor and comedian says he and Tommy Chong may soon be reuniting on film. It will certainly be interesting to see if the storyline matches those of the old days when Cheech & Chong smoked lots of pot, choked, laughed, and then got the munchies. Cheech & Chong have actually been on tour together in recent months.

Marin is in the news at the moment for an art exhibit that he launched at the Las Cruces Museum of Art in southern New Mexico recently. He has been an avid art collector for many years. The exhibit is called “Chicanitas: Small Paints from the Cheech Marin Collection,” and features 70 paintings from 29 Chicano artists. He has plans to open more of the same kinds of exhibits in locations around the world, including France. He will call the exhibits the “Chicanitas” tour.

It seems that if the Cheech & Chong reunion takes place, it will likely be in the form of an animated film.

The comedy duo’s present tour, however, definitely mirrors their old performances and is aptly named Up In Smoke.

Did you ever see Cheech & Chong in their movies or their comedy sketches that they were so famous for back in the 1970s?

It will certainly be interesting to see if the pair can actually make a comeback on the big screen. They likely will do quite well in Colorado.

Cheech Marin actually had a successful run of acting gigs following his time on film with Tommy Chong. He starred alongside Don Johnson in Nash Bridges and voiced several characters in Disney films including The Lion King, Cars, and Cars 2.

    Na, I think they’ll still be smoking dope, cruising around avoiding the cops, picking up Bimbos, snorting coke, doing plenty of dope deals, and acting like dopers would act in their late 60’s.

      And don’t forget smoking a Harley Davidson tire indoors — just for fun!

    This sounds like an article from four or five years ago. They just did an animated film (with bits from the old albums), and a DVD of a live show a few years ago, called “Hey…Watch This!”

    Hope they include the short-term memory loss both characters would have from smoking dope for 40 years….
