Kal Penn, you know, just hanging out with Michelle Obama.
From street pharmacist ("Harold and Kumar" trilogy) to legit medical doctor ("House M.D."), our next guest's acting resume is almost as diverse as his regular dude resume, which includes teaching cinema studies at the University of Pennsylvania and working in the White House for President Obama. No big deal, right? It’s all in a day's work for Kal Penn.
Now, he's hosting a new show on Discovery -- "The Big Brain Theory" -- pitting some of the smartest design engineers against one another in a competition for cold hard cash and a coveted job at a top engineering firm. Naturally, the contestants live together in close quarters. Here's to hoping/fearing someone engineered them a hot tub!
Once we've got Kal Penn in our Times Square studio, we can do whatever we want with him! We're pretty sure that's how it works. The possibilities are endless: We could talk politics (What are Bo the Dog's views on immigration?), chow down on some stupidly small burgers (seriously, what evil person invented that fast food tease?) or discuss the details of that hot tub (or not).
What do you want to know from the super handsome actor, activist and all-around smarty pants? Tweet us (@NikkiGlaser and @SaraSchaefer1) your questions for Kal Penn with the hashtag #NikkiandSaraLIVE, then watch our interview with him tonight at 11/10c on MTV!
