"Harold and Kumar" star—and Obama aide—Kal Penn condemned Mitt Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate on Twitter Saturday…as a setback for the actor's career. Penn quipped he would have been better off had Romney chosen Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a fellow Indian-American.
"This is awful. I was hoping it would be Jindal so I could play him in the HBO movie," Penn tweeted.
The actor, who had a long stint on the medical drama "House," has had an off-and-on role in the Obama White House's Office of Public Engagement since early 2009.
