Kal Penn to Romance Robin on How I Met Your Mother

Kal Penn is headed back to the small screen.

The actor famously left House for the White House a couple years ago, as his character was killed off that Fox hit in order for the actor to take on a job in the Obama administration.

But the President will have to miss Penn's services briefly in the fall when he guest stars for multiple episodes on How I Met Your Mother.

According to TV Line, Penn will come on board as Kevin, a potential love interest for Robin.

Not much else is known about the role, but the casting reunites Penn with Neil Patrick Harris, who likely owes his rebounded career to his hilarious turn as a version of himself in the Harold & Kumar films.
