Whatever Happened to Long Duk Dong?

It’s amazing how time flies. The same guy that uttered the unforgettable line “What’s Happenin’ Hot Stuff?” is now 53 years old. His name? Gedde Watanabe. “Where is my automobile?” Man I loved the Donger.

As I watched 16 Candles for the 515th time I realized that the movie absolutely sucks save for the Donger and Anthony Michael Hall’s character, “The Geek.” Yes that’s right, we never found out his name.

So what is Watanabe up to now? He’s still going strong as an actor. You may have even caught him as recently as a few months ago in Forgetting Sarah Marshall as a hotel manager. Here’s something I totally forgot. He was in an episode of Seinfeld in 1996. How about that?

I miss the Donger. Donger needs food.

    Anthony Michael Hall’s 16 Candles character was “Farmer Ted”. Nobody every explained this because he really wasn’t a farmer.

    The geek’s name was Ted Farmer, but calls himself Farmer Ted.

    The Donger was also in a Tom Hank’s movie called Volunteers, which is a great movie. He played a great part in it as the only native that could speak English very well.
