'Kumar' Gets a White House Job
By Amy Argetsiner in The Post's Reliable Source blog:
We've had actors-turned-mayors, and actors-turned-governors. . . but actors-turned-staffers? That's a new one!
But that's "House" star Kal Penn's plan, according to a new interview in Entertainment Weekly. The 30-year-old actor, first launched onto your radar as a stoner college kid in the "Harold and Kumar" movies, told the magazine he's taking a sabbatical from acting to take a job with the White House.
No, seriously! A busy and visible presence in the Obama campaign's youth-outreach effort's, Penn told the magazine he'll work as associate director in the White House office of public liaison. "They do outreach with the American public and with different organizations," he said.
