Come­back Corner

Kal Penn

35, swapped House for the White House three years ago, when he quit his role in the hit med­i­cal drama for a real-life job with Pres­i­dent Obama. The show’s scriptwrit­ers killed off his char­ac­ter, Lawrence Kut­ner (right, with Hugh Lau­rie as House), never imag­in­ing he’d make a come­back to the show, which ends this week af­ter eight years. But viewer sur­veys showed how well-loved Kut­ner was, so he pops up in the final episode as a hal­lu­ci­na­tion of House. Penn is still work­ing in the White House Of­fice of Public En­gage­ment and has also man­aged to fit in a film and a guest role in US se­ries How I Met Your Mother. House, Thurs­day, 10pm, Sky1.
