LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Cheech Marin hasn’t made a “Cheech & Chong” movie in over 25 years, but the actor/comedian is still touch with his roots.
The 65-year-old, who is currently starring in “Rob” with Rob Schneider on CBS stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, where he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that he likes to live the high life now and then.
“Do you even smoke pot?” Billy asked.
“Yeah, every once in a while,” the actor said with a smile. “I’m Cheech!”
And what about his comedy partner Tommy Chong?
“He must smoke a little pot,” Billy said.
“A little? Come on!” Cheech added.
Rob, who also appeared on Wednesday’s show, told Billy and Kit that he was honored to have the veteran actor be a part of his sitcom.
“The three biggest comedy influences in my life were Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Cheech and Chong.”
“Rob” airs at 8:30 PM on Thursday on CBS.
