    'Harold & Kumar' star, Kal Penn, robbed at gunpoint in D.C.
    by Chris Nashawaty
    Categories: Movies, News, Television
    As TMZ first reported, actor Kal Penn was robbed at gunpoint in Washington, D.C., early this morning, his rep confirmed. The 32-year-old star of the 2004 stoner comedy Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and its 2008 sequel has been working in the capital for the Obama administration. The D.C. police confirmed a robbery at 1:20 A.M. on the 1500 block of S Street to EW. The actor was accosted by a gunman, who walked up to him and took a wallet and other belongings. Penn gave up his role on the TV show House last year to take the position of an associate director in the White House’s Office of Public Engagement. He is scheduled to star in a third Harold & Kumar film later this year.

    The Secret Service could not even secure a presidential event and keep out some party crashers. The Secret Service couldn't catch a dog if it was on a leash!!

    I'm pretty sure the Secret Service has better things to do than babysit a deputy director of public engagement. The party lapse was quite the fiasco but I thought it was more than just the Secret Service that messed up.

    And if you strapped a gun to the dog and sent it after the president, well, my money's on the Secret Service

    But this just goes to show how well that whole gun ban thing works. Or rather doesn't.

    To me it sounds like he got a good dose of "Public Engagement."
    This could have ended much worse for him.

    You've got that right.
