Even though he made the writers of House kill his character in mid-April so he could accept an improbable new job with the Obama administration, Harold & Kumar star Kal Penn (see photo) didn't actually begin work at the White House until this morning. Today is his first day on the job as the Associate Director in the Office of Public Engagement. [Lynn Sweet/Chicago Sun-Times]
