But give White a microphone and ask him about the sequel and he shall speak, and it looks like a different genre is going to be ribbed this time.

After the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the film, White spoke of his upcoming projects -- while he doesn't have the household name of some of his co-stars, he's no less busy than all of them.
