Kal Penn Set to Star in Pilot for ABC!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2012

Hi Bryan Here…

Kumar from the ‘Harold and Kumar’ films (Kal Penn) has just been set to be the lead in a new pilot for ABC titled ‘Prairie Dogs’.  The show will be a single camera comedy and will follow “Neil (Penn), an uncool cubicle worker aka “prairie dog” at one of the coolest companies in the world who becomes the victim of identity theft. When he discovers the thief has created a much more fulfilling life with his identity than he ever has, he engages the charismatic conman to help him change his life.”

And it seems, according to deadline, that Kal scored a development deal with ABC, meaning that i this show doesn’t air past the pilot, or even if it does, ABC wants to be in business with Kal Penn.  So we can expect further projects with him on ABC companies.  Congrats to Penn.  I wonder if he will continue at some point working with the president and the White House?

 

Also, I hope that his ‘Harold and Kumar’ stars John Cho (Harold) and Neil Patrick Harris will cameo on his new projects.  Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Warden Samuel Norton:
I have to say that's the most amazing story I've ever heard. What amazes me most is that you were taken in by it.
Andy Dufresne:
Sir?
Warden Samuel Norton:
It's obvious this fellow Williams is impressed with you, he hears your tale of woe and naturally wants to cheer you up. He's young, not terribly bright, it's not surprising he wouldn't know what a state he put you in.
Andy Dufresne:
Sir, he's telling the truth.
Warden Samuel Norton:
Let's say for the moment this Blatch does exist. You think he'd just fall to his knees and cry: "Yes, I did it, I confess! Oh, and by the way, add a life term to my sentence."
Andy Dufresne:
You know that wouldn't matter. With Tommy's testimony I can a new trial.
Warden Samuel Norton:
That's assuming Blatch is still there. Chances are excellent he'd be released by now.
Andy Dufresne:
Well they'd have his last known address, names of relatives. It's a *chance*, isn't it.
[Norton shakes his head]
Andy Dufresne:
How can you be so obtuse?
Warden Samuel Norton:
What? What did you call me?
Andy Dufresne:
Obtuse. Is it deliberate?
Warden Samuel Norton:
Son, you're forgetting yourself.
Andy Dufresne:
The country club will have his old time cards. Records, W-2s with his name on them. Sir, if I ever get out, I'd never mention what happens here. I'd be just as indictable as you for laundering that money.
[Norton slaps the table]
Warden Samuel Norton:
Don't you *ever* mention money to me again, you sorry SON OF A BITCH! NOT IN THIS ROOM, NOT ANYWHERE.
