This is only funny in the sense that no one got killed or even knicked. The big news from the world of Harold and Kumar is that Kumar, actor Kal Penn, recently got robbed at gunpoint in Washington, D.C. earlier Tuesday. The former actor had famously quit acting to get himself some hope and change ala going to work at President Obama’s Office of Public Liaison at the White House. His job was apparently to connect the Prez with the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities, whatever the hell that means.
So what did the bad guys get? Penn’s cellphone and whatever was on his person. We are told they didn’t violate his, er, personal space during the insult.
But the big question is: what was Kal Penn doing in Washington in the wee morning hours? Word is, he was out at 1:20 a.m. when the shit went down. Do they have White Castles in D.C.?
In any case, Kumar won’t be remaining in D.C. for very long. Penn is scheduled to leave hope and change behind in order to make some real change — i.e. cash — in a third “Harold and Kumar” movie.
