Known best as the star of the Harold and Kumar franchise, House, and Designated Survivor, Kal Penn’s life has taken him on what he considers a surprising journey. In his recent memoir, You Can’t Be Serious, Kal shares a series of funny, consequential, awkward, and ridiculous stories from his colorful life, including growing up with immigrant parents and how he rejected doing “something practical” to become an actor, confronting racism in Hollywood, meeting his future husband, and working in the Obama administration as a White House aide. His experience reflects an ongoing conversation in society about what it means to be Asian American in the U.S., and what representation looks like – both on screen and in public office.
