Kumar Typecasteded!

You may remember Kal Penn from his turn as Kumar in 2004's watershed Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. He was overshadowed by NPH but it was a memorable role nonetheless. For those of you who were expecting the next De Niro I have some bad news I discovered while wandering my local Blockbuster - he has fallen victim to typecasting. Of what you wonder? Of "dude on cover of DVD screaming and staring through the shapely legs of a partially-clad attractive woman". Actually that doesn't sound too bad.


  • My guess is that he's on at least another 3 DVD covers like that. Thanks for the IMDB link--now I can anxiously await Harold and Kumar Go to Amsterdam and Van Wilder 2.

  • I looked before my post, but that's all I found. There's Dude, Where's the Party? (aka Where's the Party Yaar?) which comes close though.

    The best part of Van Wilder 2 is that not only does it not appear to have Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the title character, but it doesn't appear to have ANYONE playing Van Wilder in it!

  • Maybe if he is lucky he can will be looking through a clear glass bong for H&K2, but it will probably just be the legs of the girl he wants to meet.

    I did find it intersting to see that he was originally from montclair, but now resides in L.A. Some people have all the luck of getting typecast! :-D
