Dr. Kutner is dead! Wonder why?

The answer is: Kal Penn will be working at the White House for President Barack Obama.

Kal Penn, the actor behind the T.V. show House will be shifting his career. He will be joining the Obama administration and the White House has confirmed it.

Penn is going to be the associate director in the White House office of public liaison. He will be primarily involved in dealing with Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and the arts community.

Penn told EW.com that the new position comes after some soul-searching.

The actor also said his interest in politics has deep roots.

I’ve been thinking about [moving into politics] for a while. I love what I do as an actor. I couldn’t love it more. But probably from the time I was a kid, I really enjoyed that balance between the arts and public service.
