In honor of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, KTLA wanted to showcase the works and contributions of “dreamers who are making a difference”. Check out their close look on actor Kal Penn.
John Cho’s lighting up the holiday season with his new movie, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.
Audrey Magazine got to interview the actor during his LA press tour and you can catch his article published in the Winter Issue of our magazine (featuring cover girl Mindy Kaling). Purchase here.
Below, the rest of our chat.
How was it going back to the franchise?
I love coming back to this guy. I have a lot of affection for Harold as a character. i know guys like Harold, I [actually] know Harold Lee, whom the movie was based on, so I love it. Now I’m friends with the writers and Kal so it’s a real privilege, particularly given how nomadic the actor’s life typically is, it’s cool to have this constant.
What do you think makes a franchise work?
No idea. If I knew, I’d be rich.
When is it not working?
When you have a clay penis? [Chuckles] When you have to resort to that? I don’t know. I’ve always been of the “more is better” school just from the fans side. Even when the quality [of a film] degrades, I tend to enjoy it. The more Rocky movies the better, you know? Continue Reading »

You know it’s time for the holidays to arrive when you start hearing Christmas carols on your local radio station.

Who likes red carpet pictures where the celebs are just smiling and posing prettily? Boring!
KoreAm and Audrey caught some great outtakes from the red carpet and we’re here to share it with you. Cheers (and cheese!) to all the hair tosses, funny faces and magical moments captured in between each flash.
So nice when the film stars actually like each other. John Cho and Kal Penn look like they’re having so much fun together, I wanna join in! (And totally not because they’re John Cho and Kal Penn…) Continue Reading »

Awesome news of the week: Kal Penn will be returning to Hollywood to play Cobie Smulder‘s love interest in How I Met Your Mother!
The Washington Post has reported that Kal will be leaving his position as associate director in the Office of Public Engagement at the White House for a role on the hit CBS sitcom.
I love Kal in anything he does, whether it’s as an actor or as a government official. But I’m especially excited because I love Kal Penn and I love How I Met Your Mother!
It’s also exciting to hear that one of the lead females on prime time television will have an Asian American love interest. We’re already familiar with Asian Female – Caucasian Male relationships in Hollywood. It’s about time we show some love to our Asian American men out there!
How do you feel about Kal Penn on How I Met Your Mother?
