Kal Penn Makes It To The White House

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Just in case you were wondering if Kal Penn ever made it to the White House - yes he did:

On Monday, he became an associate director in the Office of Public Liaison, with a focus on connecting Obama with the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities, as well as arts groups. Penn, who backed Obama during the campaign, says the new job has nothing to do with his life as an actor and he expects to be treated the same as any other White House staffer. When asked about the differences between the new job and his work in Hollywood, Penn quipped that he now wears a suit.

Glad to see they finally found a desk for him.
