A former "House" star and soon-to-be ex-White House staffer will be returning to television in a recurring role on CBS’s "How I Met Your Mother," reports TVLine.com.

Kal Penn will play Kevin, a possible love interest for Cobie Smulders’ Robin. Penn’s role on the show will reunite him with Neil Patrick Harris, who played himself to Penn’s Kumar in the "Harold & Kumar" films, the article points out.

Penn left acting two years ago when he left "House" for a role in the Obama administration, where he served as associate director in the office of public liaison, a role he’s slated to leave later this month, the piece says.
