Harold and Kumar Star Kal Penn to Host DNC Webcast

by at . Comments

President Obama's got some decent acting chops. I guess a President has to in order to pretend he loves the native shrub gifted to him by the Luxembourgian Agricultural Ambassador (that's what Presidents do all day, right?).

Obama calls up actor Kal Penn in this new video promoting this week's Democratic National Convention. Penn, best known for some of his more stonery Harold and Kumar quotes, will host the online convention coverage on Thursday night.

Penn is no stranger to the Obama administration. In 2008, he campaigned for Obama and served as Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement for two years, before leaving to film A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas.

Watch Penn's coverage beginning 8pm Eastern on Thursday, September 6 at Barackobama.com. The coverage will include interviews with stars like Elizabeth Banks, Aisha Tyler, Olivia Wilde, and Zach Braff.
