Kal Penn

House fans were shocked when Kal Penn's character, Kutner, committed suicide. Kal had a good reason for wanting to be written off the show—he's leaving House for the White House. The actor, who is most well-known for his starring role in the Harold & Kumar movies, got to know President Obama and his staff during the election. He'll now serve as the Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Liason. Kal said he doesn't mind the massive pay cut he'll be getting because, "obviously, the opportunity to serve in a capacity like this is an incredible honor."
