Kal Penn From House to White House

After taking his own life on-screen as the much loved Lawrence Kutner of TV show ´House´, actor Kal Penn will now play a political role in real life. The White House has hired him as the liaison man between President Barrack Obama´s administration and Hollywood. That´s quite a big leap from Kutner´s death.

As announced by White House spokesman Shin Inouye, Penn will be joining the staff of White House as an associate director in the Office of Public Liaison. In his role as a liaison person, he will be required to connect Obama with the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities, and also arts and entertainment groups. The date when Penn will start his work is yet to be set.

Kal Penn had been playing the friendly and easy going character of Lawrence Kutner in the Fox production ´House´. He has a recurring role on the TV series. Besides, the actor has also starred in several movies including ¨Harold and Kumar Escape From Guananamo Bay¨”(where he played Kumar). On the political front, he was a strong supporter of Obama during the campaign.
