Kal Penn Returns From White House to Another 'White Castle' Stoner
Sequel
By MIKE FLEMING 

New Line has set a summer start date on the third installment of the
Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle franchise, with the Warner
Bros-based company about to hire a director, and seriously considering
doing the film in 3D. The film is Christmas-themed, giving Warner Bros
a nice R-rated holiday release for 2011 or 2012. The biggest
significance is that the start date signals the return of Kal Penn,
who put his career on hold to take the position of associate director
of the White House Office Of Public Engagement. The politically
conscious actor gave up a lot to take the job--his doctor character,
Lawrence Kutner, was killed off from the Fox drama House--but it was
done with the understanding that he'd commit to the position for one
year. As to the idea of leaving a prestige D.C. post to reprise in a
stoner comedy, well, a guy's got to make a living, right? He'll leave
shortly.

So Kal Penn could return to House as Kutner's long lost twin or as a
ghost who haunts House. The possibilities are endless !

Either would be preferable to yet another lame H&K movie.

Unfortunately for you, this is why he's taking a leave from the White House. 
Kumar is back, baby !
