Kal Penn, the Asian American actor who has starred in several movies, including the famous “Harold and Kumar” stoner movie franchise (in which he plays “Kumar”), was spotted in a green neon vest working on the floor of the Democratic National Convention this past week. Being a big supporter of Senator Barack Obama, the 31 year-old actor has been traveling around the country hoping to lend his star power to generate more support for the Presidential nominee.
Unlike other young Hollywood celebrities, Kal is not busy getting busted for DUI or checking himself into the Betty Ford Clinic. He is contributing a lot of his time to the Presidential nominee he believes in. A lot of celebrities can come out and talk about who they support but not many can do what Kal is doing. I have a lot of admiration for this dude. If I were a celebrity like Kal, I would not use my spare time for such selfless activity. Instead, I would do something that my mom would greatly disapprove. I would become a flight attendant, since it’s a lifelong dream of mine to utter those five words… “Sir, coffee, tea or me?”.
To reward Kumar’s good deeds, I am going to buy a few more copies of ”Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay” today. It’s Friday night and I don’t mind viewing the scene where John Cho exposes his butt on my 50” LCD TV. You can now call me a perv!
