Actor Kal Penn, now going back to his real name of Kalpen Modi (Represent!), started his new job Monday as Associate Director in the Office of Public Liaison. He will be working to facilitate relationships between the White House and Asia-American/Pacific Islander communities. Hat tip to Modi on both the new job. (Screw Hollywood! They never knew what to do with your brand of sexy anyway.) I’m happy to add him to the list along with Valerie Jarrett, Desiree Rogers and the rest of the White House crew I gladly follow and report.
