Kal Penn will tell his life story in his upcoming memoir You Can’t Be Serious, EW reports.
The book will be part memoir, part essay collection. It will cover his childhood in north-central New Jersey, where he was one of only two Brown children at his school.
Penn told EW the book will also discuss his many career paths: actor, farmhand, show-runner and Obama aide.
“I’ve had some ridiculous experiences so far in life,” Penn said in a statement to EW. “From a summer job working as a New Jersey farmhand (which by the way I highly recommend because it gives you incredible abs) to starring in big movies and television shows, to serving my country in the White House. This book is for anyone who has ever wondered if it’s possible to have more than one calling.”
The memoir is just one of many creative projects Penn is working on in 2021. He is also set to host the Writers Guild Awards ceremony in March, according to Deadline.
You Can’t Be Serious will be published by Gallery books on November 2, 2021. It is available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Nobles.
