    What was he doing out at 1:20 am in Washington DC?



  2. 2

    oh no! he's so sexy! i thought he quit to go back to acting, why's he still in DC?



  3. 3

    He probably got hooked on coke while working at the White House.



  4. 4

    Too bad it's not on some surveilance tape.That would be a better laugh than any of Obama Zombie's movies!

    Re: Keepin~It~Reel – That's exactly what I was thinking. I live in D.C. and noone who actually lives here would be caught dead hanging out past midnight unless they were in a group of ppl. He's obviously a tourist.



  6. 6

    Were they black?



  7. 7

    EASILY MISTAKEN FOR A BLACK DUDE AT NIGHT. NOT A SURPRISE.



  8. 8

    I bet he was mugged by a monkey.



  9. 9

    That happened to a friend of mine who lives in DC. Lots of crime.

    bleep you racist



  11. 11

    to bad the law there says only the bad guy could have a gun

    lol u would think the person who robbed him would realize that he is from Harold and Kumar. I guess people are too high when watching the film to realize they just robbed one of their idols LOL ghetto ness at it's best! All that DC has to offer. WTF was he doing out at that time anyway? Common sense…

    This guy is a clueless dope who is very unfunny. I'm sure he's working in Washington making sure that thugs like the one who robbed him get to persecute poor people freely.



  14. 14

    He quit acting to work for Obama and now he quit Obama to go back to acting.

    Can he make up his mind?

    What was he doing out at 1:30am on Monday Morning? Funny, his publicist claims this guy is working at the White House. I can tell you that REAL Whhite house employees are showing up at 7:30am or so. This guys lying through his teeth if he's claiming to work there and was out that late on a Monday.

    Wow. I was wondering the location - Dupont Circle, which is very hip, tons of bars, lots of people, etc. I'm kind of unnerved it occurred there (and not weird to work until 11 pm - this is DC, folks - then go for a drink). Again, considered a very safe area.
    -
    I thought perhaps it was on Capitol Hill - not such a safe area after dark.
    -
    Again, wow . . . .

    Re: Spindoc – It just really depends. I've gone to work on a "normal" Weds, and not made it home until the next morning when the today show was on.
    -
    Depending on what he does, the hours can really swing - like above. The motion for court I was working on was to be presented at 9 am Thursday morning - thus, the all-nighter, though unexpected. Of course, I then had Thur. off.

    Re: Spindoc – Honest - not at all weird for law firms and Hill employees to work long hours, and then come in a little later the next day - i.e. work to midnight, come in at 10 am next morning.
    -
    I'm betting Kal lives in Dupont Circle area - again, trendy, hip, young. Likely worked late, was heading home on foot (only reason you need a car in DC is to go away for the weekend) - and robbed.
    -
    Still . . . it a nice area, tons of cabs, lots of people out and about (even at that hour). Scary.

    I'll bet you the robbers were black!



  20. 20

    tons of people walk the streets of Dupont Circle at that time in the morning. Its a trendy area full of bars and great restaurants. Its DC, a lot of people work very late here, but like LuLu2 said, its a safe area so its very surprising.



  21. 21

    He got robbed and today's 4/20?! Oh, no! Dude, kick the guy in the balls next time.
