Soon-to-be Professor Penn

The Asian American Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania has just revealed that Kal Penn (The Namesake, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle) will join the faculty next spring as a visiting professor.

The decision was announced Saturday night at a banquet celebrating the program’s 10th anniversary. Penn expressed interest in teaching at the school after a campus visit last November, where he spoke about the experience of being desi in Hollywood.

The actor will teach two courses: “Images of Asian Americans in the Media,” and “Contemporary American Teen Films.” (via)
