Kal Penn


Кэлпен Суреш Моди (англ. Kalpen Suresh Modi; 23 апреля 1977, Монтклэйр, Нью-Джерси, США) — американский актёр и продюсер. С начала 2009 года до июня 2010 года занимал пост помощника главы отдела по связям с общественностью в администрации Барака Обамы.

Kalpen Suresh Modi (born April 23, 1977), best known by his stage name Kal Penn, is an American film actor and public servant. He is the first Indian-American to find a successful acting career among Hollywood's mainstream.[1]

As an actor, he is known for roles on the television programs House and 24, as well as in the Harold and Kumar comedy films. Penn has also taught at the University of Pennsylvania as a visiting lecturer in the Cinema Studies Program.

On April 8, 2009, it was announced that Penn would join the Obama administration as an Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement.[2] This necessitated that his character Lawrence Kutner be written out of the TV series House.[2][3] Penn resigned his post as Barack Obama's associate director of public engagement on June 1, 2010, to return to his acting career.[4] After a brief hiatus to film a sequel to the Harold and Kumar movie, Penn returned to the White House Office of Public Engagement as an Associate Director.[5].
