Kal Penn Leaves ‘House’ for the White House

When Kal Penn left the show House on Monday night it wasn’t because he had been fired. Penn is on his way to another House to work, the White House.
During the Obama Campaign the actor volunteered. He and the President got along so well he was offered a job with the administration. Penn whose real name is Kalpen Modi, will serve as a liaison connecting the Obama administration with arts and entertainment groups.Kal Penn will officially be the associate director in the White House office of public liaison.

His new job will allow him to be an outreach to the American public and with different groups. He will be helping remove the red tape for the general public and the White House.

His new office is in the executive building.

Penn has been interested in politics for quite some time. While he loves acting he is also a huge fan of those political science classes. He studied international studies at Stanford in 2006.

He was given the blessing of the producers, David Shore and Katie Jacobs to pursue this new phase in his life.

Entertainment Weekly quotes the actor’s explanation for leaving the hit television show.

I was incredibly honored a couple of months ago to get the opportunity to go work in the White House. I got to know the President and some of the staff during the campaign and had expressed interest in working there, so I’m going to be the associate director in the White House office of public liaison. They do outreach with the American public and with different organizations. They’re basically the front door of the White House. They take out all of the red tape that falls between the general public and the White House. It’s similar to what I was doing on the campaign.
