AV Club asked legendary actor, Stacy Keach (Mike Hammer, Sgt Stedenko), what it was like working with Cheech and Chong in Up in Smoke and Nice Dreams.
Sgt. Stedenko was definitely one of my favorite characters. I loved working with Cheech and Chong, and we had a lot of fun. Everyone thinks that everyone was stoned on the set, but that’s not true at all. Everybody was straight as an arrow when we were working. After work… well, who knows what goes on? [Laughs.] But on the set, they were absolutely very professional and were hard workers. We had a great time.
