Report: Actor Kal Penn to leave Obama administration


By GottaLaff

No confirmation from the White House yet, but Entertainment Weekly reports that Kal Penn is leaving the White House. But the question remains: Will he get residuals?

Oh, but I kid the White House:

Penn, whose real name is Kalpen Modi, has spent much of the past year working in the White House Office of Public Liaison, which is run by Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. reported that the actor is returning to Hollywood to resume his acting career, starting with a Christmas-themed installation of the "Harold and Kumar" series.

At least he didn't say he's leaving to spend more time with his family. Points for originality!
