Indian American entertainer Kal Penn who recent came out with his eminently readable memoir You Can’t Be Serious, is now part of the posh Santa Claus series in Disney Plus.
The series stars Tim Allen as Santa and Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs Santa.
Kal will play a game inventor named Simon Choksi.
Speaking to me about the new project Kal Penn says, “I’m very excited about The Clauses. Who doesn’t love a great Christmas series! It’s a 6-episode limited series for Disney + based on the “Santa Claus” trilogy starring Tim Allen. Tim reprises his role as Scott Calvin ,aka Santa”
Shedding some light on his role in The Clauses Kal says, “I play a motivated single dad ,sort of like a Jeff Bezos , whose life totally changes when he ends up at the North Pole. We don’t have all the scripts yet, so that’s all I really know so far.”
Kal says he is looking forward to the experience. “I am really excited about it .I grew up watching Christmas and holiday movies, and just produced Hot Mess Holiday, the Diwali-themed film that aired on Comedy Central India last week, so it’s especially exciting to work on something that my nieces and nephews can enjoy.”
“That’s all for now. Happy to share more once I know more!” Kal signed off.
