Obama & Kumar Go to the White House

Kal Penn (aka Kumar) from Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle fame, has decided to leave his TV show, House, and head to the White House to serve in President Obama‘s administration.

The 31-year old actor will be the associate director in the White House’s Office of Public Liaison & Intergovernmental Affairs.

Penn describes the group, saying, “They do outreach with the American public and with different organizations. They’re basically the front door of the White House. They take out all of the red tape that falls between the general public and the White House.”

Congrats Kal!
