24 Season 6: Kal Penn Joins Cast, Emmy Update

The latest news from reports (WARNING: Spoiler Alert):

Kal Penn (Superman Returns, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) has joined the cast of Fox’s "24" in a recurring role, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Penn will play a guy who is somehow involved with the Islamic guru running the neighborhood mosque and might be the key to a terrorist plot.

Let me get this straight, Kal Penn, resident funny man from “Van Wilder” and “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle’ will be on 24, playing a middle eastern character? I’m sure his role won’t be so funny this time around (unless he’s a total dimwit, then we can have all the fun we want!) And, to top that off, he’ll be somehow involved with the Islamic guru... nice typecasting.

In other news, the Creative Arts Emmys have been announced and our good ol’ show won two:

  1. Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Dramatic Underscore)
  2. Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series (7:00 AM - 8:00 AM )

That puts me way behind in my predictions, but puts them at 2 for 7 right now. With the Primetime awards coming up next week, we’ll be watching closely to see if the most critically-acclaimed season can garner more than its predecessors.
