RIP Cheech and Chong Producer Peter Macgregor-Scott

Peter Macgregor-Scott died in New York City Wednesday after a taxi accident.

He produced Steve Martin's The Jerk, The Fugitive, two Batman films, Revenge of the Nerds and more.  He was also a production manager on Animal House.

Cheech and Chong fans should know he was the producer for Next Movie, Still Smokin' and The Corsican Brothers.  In a 2003 interview, he said Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong were sober professionals. "There was never any smoke. When the boys are working, it's a very clean set. No alcohol, no smoke, no nothing," Macgregor-Scott said. "They learned that in their live performances. They went to Folsom Prison and they had a little too much extra, and it wasn't a good day for them. They said, 'OK, that's the end of that. We go on clean as a whistle from now on.' I did three pictures with them, and that was the way it was from then 'til now, I'm sure."

In addition, he produce Cheech Marin's Born in East LA.

He was 69 years old.
