Update a DataTable after adding two new columns using linq

Greetings experts.
I have a DataTable which under certain conditions I must add two columns. I also must set these columns and was hoping I could do so in LINQ instead of iterating through the entire row set.
if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(myParam))
            {
                table.Columns.Add("COL1", typeof(string));
                table.Columns.Add("COL2", typeof(string));

                table.AsEnumerable().ForEach(r =>
                   r["COL1"] = r["COL2"] = myParam);

                table.AcceptChanges();
            }

I am successfully adding the columns but the values remain null.
Any help on syntax would be greatly appreciated.
