Obscure Movie Characters We Love: Richardson from Hot Rod

Tam

I’ve decided to create a little topic that I hold dear because I want to pay homage to those movie characters that make our days a little bit brighter by their performances.  They’re not huge in stature.  Hell you probably have never heard of them but somehow, in some way you always notice them in that movie you just saw.

Today’s assignment is Richardson from the underrated comedy Hot Rod.

One of the best characteristics of one of these characters is the memory factor.  You might not remember every single line from the movie but you can be damned sure to remember one or a few things that these guys do.

Chester Tam (the guy who plays Richardson) nailed his part.  And what was his part?  Simple.  Be the biggest and best fan of Hot Rod on the planet.  And how does one accomplish this feat?  Quite simply actually.   By defending his honor every single chance he got.

And also by air humping obsessively.    We may never see Chester Tam again in a movie but he will forever be immortalize by doing this…

Thanks buddy.  Just giving you the credit you deserve.

*Something interesting to note.  In most of his TV and Movie appearances he goes by “Chester” as his character name.  Curious as to why he agreed to be Richardson.  I guess an Asian guy called Richardson is kind of funny.

Also, Chester is part of The Lonely Island, clearly why he was in the movie in the first place.  I do hope we hear from Mr. Tam again.  The guy is fantastic.
