Enlisting his former associate director for the Office of Public Liaison for support, President Barack Obama tapped actor Kal Penn to host the 2012 Democratic National Convention coverage on BarackObama.com.
The "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" actor snagged his costar John Cho to star in a promo for the gig. In the video, the President picks up the phone and tells the listener that he needs his support.
We soon see that the listeners are Penn and Cho, sitting on the couch, watching cartoons and eating junk food. The dialogue continues with Cho asking, "Dude, who was that? Sounded intense.” Penn replies, “The President.” Then Cho quips, “Sweet.”
You can see Kal cover the action live from Charlotte on September 6th starting at 8pm eastern. Watch the promo video below.
