Actor Kal Penn made a high-profile speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Tuesday night, but his appearance at the Charlotte airport Friday drew some attention as well, as reporters on the scene took note of Penn’s “ridiculously long” pat-down by the TSA.

Rapper and “Romney voter” Nicki Minaj recently claimed she was “fondled” by a “perv” at the TSA, but Penn wrote off the similar-sounding pat-down as “a great buttocks massage.” Did Penn’s “Kumar” persona have something to do with the attention?

Penn, formerly an associate director in the White House’s Office of Public Engagement, also starred in “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.”

Maybe Penn’s just used to vigorous pat-downs by now, having undergone a self-described “very thorough inguinal massage” earlier this month.
