Kal Penn Won’t Smoke Marijuana At Your Burger Cookout

If you invite Kal Penn over for dinner, don’t bother asking him to smoke marijuana afterwards.

Or eat burgers for dinner.

The Harold and Kumar star was known for getting stoned and eating White Castle burgers in the movie, and unfortunately Penn says this translates into some people thinking he’s like his character.

From The Insider:

“It’s sad for the people who offer me a joint because I don’t smoke weed in real life. I was also a vegetarian when we shot the first movie and that was about burgers. I don’t go out of my way to tell people I was a vegetarian or that I don’t smoke weed, because I don’t want them to be disappointed. If you want to keep the suspension of disbelief that’s OK, but then sometimes it’s weird.”

So there. The suspense is over.

Keep your burgers and your joints to yourself.

Penn recently left his job at the White House as Associate Director of Public Engagement to film the new Christmas themed Harold and Kumar movie.

During the Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle movie, Kal was given veggie burgers made to look real once he and co-star John Cho finally made it White Castle.

Woody Harrelson “Zombieland” Vegan Twinkie

Premiere of Sony Pictures' "Zombieland" - Arrivals

If you’ve seen Zombieland starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Einsenberg, you know that Woody gets his energy to run from the zombies by snacking on his favorite food of Twinkies.

In real life, Woody’s a raw vegan and regular Twinkies won’t cut it.

Just like Kal Penn had veggie burgers waiting for him at White Castle during the Harold and Kumar film, the directors on the set had specially made vegan Twinkies ready for Woody.

“They were actually edible for a guy like me,” Woody said.

Zombieland Twinkies were made from cornmeal and other vegan ingredients. This leads Woody to believe companies really can make healthy junk food if they put their mind to it.

“There’s a possibility that (manufacturer) Hostess could do a healthy Twinkie. It’s a thought.”

While they’re at it, can we get some vegan Ho-Hos too?

When Kal Penn and co-star John Cho finally made it to White Castle in the first of the Harold and Kumar series, Kal chowed down on vegetarian “White Castle burgers” specially prepared for him.

Have you ever wondered what goes into those beautiful food scenes on television? How does a vegan actress appear to be eating turkey, when it’s really made of soybeans?

The New York Times has the lowdown on several grub events that took place in Hollywood film, and what went on behind the scenes so the actors could munch smoothly.

In the 2008 film, Pride and Glory, for example, three of the actresses were vegetarian or vegan, including Lake Bell.

Ruth DiPasquale, an assistant property master for the film, called a vegan chef to help create a Christmas dinner scene with ham as the centrepiece. Bell and the other veg actresses ate pieces of “sham ham.”

Says the New York Times:

“She ended up piling slices of sham ham made from soybeans near the real stuff, careful to make sure the two versions never touched.”

Harold and Kumar go to White Castle

Harold and Kumar fans, be on the lookout for another film from the duo, A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas.

Vegetarian actor Kal Penn and co-star John Cho will begin filming early next year according to Entertainment Weekly. The film is set for release in November 2010.

By that time, Kal will have completed his White House stint as associate director in the White House Office of Public Liaison (OPL).

If you recall, in the first installment of the Harold and Kumar movies,  Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, when Harold and Kumar finally made it to the big castle, they gorged on little burgers.

The crew had some specially made vegetarian burgers for Kal, who played Kumar, to pig out on during the scene.

Kal is vegetarian for religious, ethical, and cultural reasons.
