Kal Penn Leaves White House Gig to Play Kumar Again; Harold and Kumar 3 Gets Director


Kal Penn is, as expected, leaving his White House job to go back to Hollywood (though who knows, maybe it was a one-year gig to begin with.) He'll join John Cho in A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas, which now has a director, Todd Strauss Schulson. Despite multiple reports that the next H&K3 will come out this Christmas, it's slated for 2011 or 2012, because movies are not made and put out that fast unless they're Valentine's Day. No word yet on whether it'll be in 3-D. [Risky Business/Hollywood Reporter, ABC]
