We thought he died after Beverly D’Angelo shot him in the back outside a brothel, but a secret clip during the end credits suggested otherwise.

An early script suggested Kelly Ripa should cameo alongside NPH as the co-host of a television Christmas special, but Ripa has not yet been confirmed for the film. Either way, Harris will really need to step up his game from ecstasy and mushrooms. I don’t really know any other drugs, so you tell me which one NPH should sample next.
