The guy who played Kumar, Kal Penn, is attaining his own real-life dream by temporarily pushing show business aside to work at the White House.
Penn announced yesterday that he’s taking a job in the Office of Public Liaison for President Barack Obama.
If you paid attention to the campaign, you noticed Penn at Obama rallies. He was particularly active on college campuses rallying support, although he was never elevated to a Democratic version of Joe the Plumber.
Penn will be an associate director for the office focusing on outreach for Asian-American and Pacific Islander groups as well as the arts communities.
Now that is just a helluva lotta fun.
