Kal Penn, better known to all of you as Kumar, from Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, is going to be on Fox juggernaut series 24 this season, facing off against Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer as a member of some cabal of foreigners, meant to scare the bejeezus out of us red-blooded Americans.
I'm not sure what the plot of this season's 24 is, but I can take a stab at it. In one very bad day, Jack Bauer will have to travel farther, do more, and watch more friends and acquaintances die of unknown diseases and explosions than ever before, in an attempt to save the world from some sort of terrorist threat that goes "higher up the foodchain" than we are first led to believe.
In related news, John McClane just saw a trailer for a new season of 24, and was all, like, "Come on. Who's going to buy another cataclysmic situation for this dude?"
Also, one time, we went flying with Kal Penn and John Cho. Wanna see?
