Actor Kal Penn is turning his back on Hollywood once again to return to his political career as a White House aide.
The star quit hit TV drama House to join U.S. President Barack Obama's office as Associate Director of Public Engagement in 2009, but walked away from the post in April (10) to reprise his stoner character Kumar in comedy sequel Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle.
However, the 33 year old is not quite done with politics - he's heading back to Washington, D.C., where he will resume the same government post.
