Bangalore: Indian American actor Kal Penn is all set for a comeback to Hollywood, after serving white house for a period of two years. He will be seen in “The Sisterhood of Night,” playing the role of a guidance counselor, reports PTI.

“It was the first time I filmed something in a high school where I wasn’t [playing] a student,” he told the influential Hollywood blog, about his character in the movie.

Penn is also part of Kit Ryan’s psychological thriller “Dementamania”. “It’s an old school-style British horror movie where I play a young CEO of a company, and where there is a lot of blood and gore. I’ve always wanted to make a film like that. “When I first moved to LA, I got a job as an extra on Wes Craven’s ‘The Wishmaster,’” he explained. “Even though I got all bloodied up, I was on the screen for something like point five seconds. ‘Dementamania’ is very cool and disturbing,” he added.

Penn is also starring in “Late Bloomer”, with Elijah Wood. It’s based on a novel by Ken Baker called ‘A Memoir of My Body,’ and Elijah plays a guy whose medical condition prevented him from going through puberty until his 30s. “I play one of his two childhood friends and while we have settled down from the irresponsibility that men go through in their 20s, we help him as he experiences all of these things for the first time. The script is just hilarious’’, says Penn.

Penn made his debut in ‘Express: Aisle to Glory’ in 1998 and is best known for his acting in the Harold and Kumar film series. He attended The Fine and Performing Arts Academy at Howell High School and later on majored in film and sociology from the University of California at Los Angeles. He was born to Guajarati immigrants.
