http://shrinkify.com/nq5 [i]"The White House has hired actor Kal Penn as a liaison between President Barack Obama's administration and arts groups. 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 and entertainment groups."[/i] im surprised!! but happy!! i know he was speaking at colleges a lot using an alias or something but dang! what a step up! white castle movies then house then now the WHITE HOUSE! anyone else surprised? what do you think about it? i will miss him on house though

I just read about this yesterday and I'm happy he's going to be able to do something he wants to do. How exciting to be able to be in an active role in the White House. I'll miss him on House though, as I liked his character. I just saw him not too long ago in old B series on Sci-Fi that he must have done years ago. It's nice to see him really evolving as an actor, but also within the community. Namaste-Anora

It was "Tru Calling", a Sci-Fi series. They were running an all day marathon and he was on episode one. Heck, he did a few Buffy episodes, and other spots on various shows as a "character actor". I'm sure he'll continue back with his acting career when he's done with his White House career. Namaste-Anora

I'll miss him. We wondered because it was so sudden. Now what will they do on the show? I like how they put the episode together though and made house seem... human. And here I thought he was from my home planet.
