Eva Longoria and Kal Penn are among the Obama re-election campaign's co chairs, joining a list that includes Caroline Kennedy, California Attorney General Kamala Harris and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Longoria is among the Obama campaign's bundlers, and co-hosted a fund-raising event in October aimed at drawing Latino support. She recently formed her own foundation and is on the board of the National Museum of the American Latino.

Penn, whose real name is Kalpen Modi, is the star of the "Harold and Kumar" films and served as associate director in the White House's Office of Public Engagement, where he focused on outreach to the Asian-American and the Pacific Islander communities, as well as to young constituents.
