Apparently, White Castle trumps the White House.

Hollywood Insider brings news that Kal Penn will be leaving his current post as President Barack Obama's Associate Director of Public Engagement to reprise his role as Kumar Patel for a third 'Harold & Kumar' comedy. Penn's co-star, John Cho, will be returning as Harold Lee.

Penn joined the administration last year, thus putting his acting career on hold. At the time, he was appearing on the hit Fox medical drama 'House,' and shocked everyone when his character, Dr. Lawrence Kutner, committed suicide.

The third 'Harold & Kumar' will be Christmas-themed, with New Line Cinema eyeing a holiday 2011 release. Newcomer Todd Strauss Schulson will be directing, as original 'Harold & Kumar' creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are moving to Universal to direct the fourth 'American Pie' movie.

Production on the new 'Harold & Kumar' will commence in late June -- and it might even be in 3D.

The 'Harold & Kumar' movies chronicle the surreal misadventures of two stoner pals who always seem to run into Neil Patrick Harris playing a strange meta version of himself in their travels. 'Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle' was a sleeper hit in 2004, earning over $23 million in worldwide box office, on just a $9 million budget. The 2008 sequel, 'Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay,' earned over $43 million.
