Kal Penn Leaving Obama Team for ‘Harold & Kumar’ Sequel
Actor Kal Penn is leaving the Obama White House to film another “Harold & Kumar” sequel.
Our friends at Lifeline Live and other entertainment news outlets are reporting that actor Kal Penn is leaving his White House job to film another sequel to the Harold & Kumar movies.
So did you ever wonder what Kalpeni Modi (the actor’s real name) did as an associate director of public engagement for President Obama? Of course, he promoted Obama’s public policies. In a White House blog post earlier this week, Modi touted Obama signing into law sweeping changes in the student loan program aimed at helping more young people go to college.
Modi also was Obama’s liaison to Asian-American community groups, updating them on policy initiatives and engaging them on ways they could help the president.
I’ve checked the dates on this and it appears not to be an April Fools’ joke. As odd as it was for the star of a goofball movie about potheads to be given a prominent role in a presidential team, it’s simply bizarre for said individual to leave after a year to return to making pothead movies.
Perhaps this is why Cheech Marin never received an appointment in the Reagan Administration.
