Kal Penn aka Kumar aka #6 aka #9 is staying on permanently!!!

http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2007/10/kal-penn-to-joi.html



Kal_penn House has a new team member: Kal Penn (Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle) has joined the cast of the popular Fox show as a series regular. He plays Lawrence Kutner, a young doctor who comes up with unorthodox ways to diagnose patients. Penn debuted Oct. 2 on the drama as No. 6, one of many doctors vying for a coveted spot on House's exclusive team. Kutner caught House's attention in the episode by resuscitating a patient and suggesting that they get her drunk to better diagnose her rare neurological condition. "Lawrence is a fan of trying random methods of exploration and life saving, and isn't afraid to break the rules a little bit," Penn tells EW exclusively.  The actor, who last appeared on Fox last season as Ahmed Amar in 24, said he already feels at home on the hit drama. "When you start out on a show, nerves can run high, but with House, everyone was so welcoming, I felt like part of the family," says Penn. "Psyched does not even begin to describe it. Awesomeness and thankfulness probably." Penn is also set to appear in Harold & Kumar 2 next year.

The hyperbaric chamber scene still cracks me up

4th-Oct-2007 12:42 pm (UTC)

His reaction was priceless
4th-Oct-2007 01:00 am (UTC)

This is good news.
4th-Oct-2007 01:56 am (UTC)

Especially after last night. Be still my fangirl heart

YOU JUST MADE MY DAY, OMG.

(followed this link from one of the communities... forgot which one.)
4th-Oct-2007 01:57 am (UTC)
OMG, I must have that icon!!!

Glad I could make your day :)
4th-Oct-2007 02:00 am (UTC)
My current one right now with Kal and Hugh? I just made it! 8D You can steal if you like.

Totally made my day. I really, really wanted him to be a permanent addition.
4th-Oct-2007 02:06 am (UTC)
You are made of awesome, I will completely credit as well as bow at your feet!

Kumar PWNS everything :D
4th-Oct-2007 03:23 am (UTC)
8D I'm surprised someone already stole it, lol. I hope people make more Kutner icons. ._.

(By the way, I hate to be a bothherrr, but, there's no h on the end of my name. However, I never thought of it like "psych"... haha, pretty cool.)

KUMAR TOTALLY DOES. Although I have to admit, I had ...no idea who Kal Penn was until they announced him being on House. I just thought the idea of an Indian-descent guy would be fantastic. Then I saw Harold & Kumar and I was like "THIS MOVIE IS AMAZING."
4th-Oct-2007 03:28 am (UTC)
Oh sorry, I study psychology so it's a natural progression. I will fix it pronto.

And it goes without saying any friend of bonorattle is a friend of mine :)

That movie is hilarious, and when Doggie Howser showed up, I though I was going to die!

I've been looking for more icons of Kutner but all I have found are a few pictures of Kal Penn, one of him holding the giant bag of weed.

I'm going to have to do a picspam of #6/9 aka Kutner in celebration of him becoming a regular cast member :D
4th-Oct-2007 03:50 am (UTC)
It's alright! Oooh, psychology? Study as in just in your free time or as a major/education/whatnot? My father has a PhD in Psych and is a Psych professor, so right now I'm leaning heavily towards being a Psych major as well.

bonorattle is totally awesome. Her and smurphy487 (I probably... did not get the numbers at the end of her name right... I have like some sort of number dyslexia, I swear) always overload my Flist with glorious glorious Hugh pictures. It's the best part of waking up.

I thought I was going to die when the guy from Two Guys and a Girl showed up, playing the gay nurse/doctor/assistant in the operation scene. And then I thought I was going to die again at the end when Kumar is like "YOU KNOW WHAT, I THINK I'LL BECOME A DOCTOR!"

I have not seen any Kutner icons yet, which is why I took it on myself to make one. Haha, giant bag of weed FTW.

Kutner picspam is totally the way to go.
4th-Oct-2007 01:10 am (UTC)
Oh that is awesome! Please kick off the Olivia chic, she is dry and annoying :) Kal Penn is gold :)
4th-Oct-2007 01:58 am (UTC)
I think #13 has an ulterior motive for being there plus ZERO chemistry with HL so she doesn't concern me. Let her have Chase.

#6/9 FTW!
4th-Oct-2007 01:32 am (UTC)
...wait...so is he NOT gonna be teaching at my school spring semester???! DUDE, I was SO looking forward to that...
...But then my House fangirly side's all squeal-y at this news too...
I'm so conflicted!!! :D
4th-Oct-2007 01:59 am (UTC)
Kal Penn was supposed to teach at your school, that is SO amazing.

I just can't wait for more of the Kal/Hugh moments!
4th-Oct-2007 01:34 am (UTC)
Cool!
4th-Oct-2007 01:59 am (UTC)
So freakin' cool!!!!

My love for Kumar knows no bounds!!

Him and medicinal marijuana (remeber Kumar marrying the giant bag of weed with the hamburger helper hands?)

4th-Oct-2007 02:10 am (UTC)
I know, Kumar is freakin' love!

My smile couldn't be wider right now, well except for during last night's episode
4th-Oct-2007 02:16 am (UTC)
SO HAPPY right now. :D
4th-Oct-2007 02:45 am (UTC)
I'm excited but at the same time I worry about the ducklings air time-well mostly just Cameron. Hello? Can we say ER? Too many docs not enough air time.
4th-Oct-2007 03:41 am (UTC)
This is terrific news! This was the only newbie I cared about and I'm thrilled he's staying.

:)
