Kumar Goes to The White House

Actor/public servent Kal PennIf you haven’t seen this week’s episode of House, stop reading. You’ve been warned.

Kal Penn is moving up in the world. The actor that started out as Van Wilder’s flunky, Taj, before moving on to a pair of Harold and Kumar movies, and a couple of seasons on House, is trading in White Castle for the White House.

Last night’s episode of House made it very clear that Penn is done with the show. So what exactly is he moving on to? He’s becoming President Obama’s associate director in the White House office of public liaison. What does that mean? No clue. But best of luck to him. I’ll definitely miss him on House though. He fit in well with House’s other flunkies.
