Harold's Mate Kumar Gets Job With Obama Administration

harold_and_kumar_2_posterYeah, you read that right. Kal Penn, real name Kalpen Suresh Modi, the guy who plays Kumar in the stone-cold stoner classics Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay has been given a job by Barack Obama. NO WAY DUDE!

Yep, Kumar's off to work in the Office of Public Liaison, where his role will be "to connect the President with Asian, Pacific Island communities and arts groups," according to the BBC.

Penn told journalists he felt his calling was in public service, adding, "It's not like I'm retiring from acting. I certainly intend to come back at some point."

Awesome.
