Picture 10

The Best Link Today:

Okay, today I seriously mean "BEST LINK TODAY," at least for me and the other House fans, who were left to wonder why those evil producers killed off one of our favorite characters.  I don't want to be a spoiler, but you have to literally live under a rock to have missed this buzz, so . . .

Anyway, Zap 2 It reports today that the reason why Kal Penn left was not plot-driven or salary renegotiation-driven or even "I have a big movie career now"-driven.  The dude left a huge hit TV show to, YUP, join Obama's administration.

And, as if he wasn't already my favorite member of House's underling team, now I love him even more!!!  I don't know whether to be psyched or even more devastated.  All I know is, it would have been much cooler to have him disappear or quit or something, so he could come back, if that whole Obama/White House thang got old.  I wonder if he's surprised by the outpouring of freak out.

Maybe he wants to be President too?  Hmm . . . does Kumar's druggy past bode badly or well?

Only time (and not House) will tell.

    that is crazy! that is literally the only reason (joining the obama administration) that i would accept for killing off my beloved kumar.

  2. cannot believe obama hired kutner and not me!!

  3. The only aspect of this that consoles me is that as a DC resident, my chances of casually bumping into him on the street just improved considerably. Time to start taking extended lunches down near that part of town (there’s an excellent lunch place down there called Breadline, as luck would have it).

  4. Brek, maybe you need to get really high and let someone film you?
    Kelli, of course!!!!
    Kate, now I want to go to Breadline.
