Yes, that stoner from the Harold and Kumar movies was working in the Obama administration!
Kal Penn, under his real name, Kalpen Modi, has been associate director of public engagement for the President since last July, a gig he ditched acting on House to nab. But now it seems Kal (pictured at the Jan. 25 SAG Awards) just can’t resist the temptation of more green (in more ways than one) and will leave his post to star in a Christmas-themed Harold and Kumar movie…in 3D! Expect holiday fun for the whole family in winter 2011.
Well, I think it’s safe to say we haven’t really seen a stoner movie until it’s gone 3D. Way to organize those priorities, Kal!
