When Kal Penn traded his job as a resident on House for a full-time gig as an associate director in the White House Office of Public Liaison (by way of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, no less), we just kind of assumed that Penn had put his acting career on hold for the next four (possibly eight) years while Barack Obama is living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. However, it appears that White House staffers have a more liberal vacation policy than we had previously been aware of, as Warner Bros. has announced they will release A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas on November 5, 2010. While we could not possibly be any more excited to see NPH and Santa Claus trade bong rips, what we'd really like to see is the e-mail Penn is going to have to send to Obama to request six weeks off to shoot the film. Better not take any sick days this year, Kal!
