Mexican investigators want to interrogate American actor Sean Penn about his secret meeting and intervew with fugitive drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, AFP reported Sunday.

A Mexican official says that "El Chapo" was captured as a result of Penn's clandestine meeting with the drug lord last October.

Though Penn outlines many of the security measures he was able to observe, the meeting was ultimately arranged by the Mexican film star Kate del Castillo who, according to Penn, communicated with El Chapo via BBM. ABC News reports Penn and del Castillo are both under investigation by the Mexican government.
