Two celebries will be making a stop on campus next week to endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president.

Actor and musician Nick Cannon and actor Kal Penn will speak at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the Kiva.

Steve Dunwoody, a Kent State alumnus and field organizer for the Obama campaign, made the announcement at a meeting with the Kent State chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management today. The primary goal of the meeting was to get presidential candidates, including Obama to campus.

Dunwoody made no promises Obama would stop at Kent State, but he did say he would like to see that happen.

Penn is best known for his roles in Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, National Lampoon’s Van Wilder and the television show “House M.D.” Cannon is a rapper, comedian and actor who has had roles in films such as Bobby and Drumline.
