Kal Penn has left the White House; "Harold & Kumar 3" awaits...
One and done. Kal Penn has had it with President Obama. He’s left the White House.
Well, the actor perhaps best known for the “Harold and Kumar” movies is no longer serving the president in the White House Office of Public Engagement, anyway.
He left at the beginning of the month to fulfill a prior commitment, one White House spokesman told CNN.
Not a surprise. The average stay of a White House staffer is 18 months. And you’ll recall that when Penn took the job he said he intended to return to acting. “Right now I just felt my calling was in public service,” he said at the time.
That, and he had the free time. The character he was playing on “House” killed himself. So it all kinda opened up.
What’s that prior commitment? New "Harold and Kumar" movie. That’s the buzz anyway.
And this one is particularly special. It’s holiday-themed. Think Christmas on Walton’s Mountain (with a lot of weed).
