Kal Penn Quits ‘House’ for White House
Lawrence Kutner, the Indian guy on “House,” killed himself in last night’s episode. Now, Kal Penn, the actor who plays him, will get a job in the White House.
White House spokesman Shin Inouye said Tuesday that the actor who had a recurring role on Fox’s TV show “House” and has starred in several movies would join the staff as an associate director in the Office of Public Liaison. His role will be to connect Obama with the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities, as well as arts groups.
Penn starred as Kumar in the movie, “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.”
Does John Cho get a job, too? It could be another sequel: “Harold and Kumar Go to the White House?”
