Watching Online Drama Hosue | Cast And Crew | Review And Preview

Filled under:

At first, the producers were looking for a "quintessentially American person" to play the role of House.Bryan Singer in particular felt there was no way he was going to hire a non-American actor for the role.At the time of the casting session, actor Hugh Laurie was in Namibia filming the movie Flight of the Phoenix.

He assembled an audition tape in a hotel bathroom, the only place with enough light, and apologized for its appearance(which Singer compared to a "bin Laden video").Laurie improvised, using an umbrella for a cane. Singer was very impressed by his performance and commented on how well the "American actor" was able to grasp the character.Singer was not aware that Laurie was English, due to his convincing American accent. Laurie credits the accent to "a misspent youth [watching] too much TV and too many movies".Although locally better-known actors such as Denis Leary, Rob Morrow, and Patrick Dempsey were considered for the part, Shore, Jacobs, and Attanasio were as impressed as Singer and cast Laurie as House.

After the show's title fades, there is an aerial view of PPTH (actually various Princeton University buildings, primarily Frist Campus Center).This is followed by a series of images accompanying each cast member's name; most are shown next to, or superimposed upon, illustrations of the human anatomy. Laurie's name appears next to a model of a human head with the brain exposed; Edelstein's name appears next to a visual effects–produced graphic of nerve axons; Epps's name is superimposed upon a rib cage X-ray; Leonard's name appears on a drawing of the two hemispheres of the brain.The producers originally wanted to include an image of a cane and an image of a Vicodin bottle, but Fox objected. Morrison's title card was thus lacking an image; an aerial shot of rowers on Princeton University's Lake Carnegie was finally agreed upon to accompany her name.

In the eleventh episode of season five, "Joy to the World", Foreman and Thirteen engage in a passionate kiss.Thirteen is at first reluctant to start a relationship with Foreman, but the two eventually begin dating and are still together at the end of the season.They break up early in season six. In the twentieth episode of season 5, "Simple Explanation", Kutner is found dead in his apartment with a gunshot wound to the head. Because Kutner left no note, House suspects foul play, though the death is accepted by the other characters as a suicide.In season seven, Thirteen will take a leave of absence while a medical student, played by Amber Tamblyn, takes her position for several episodes.While Jacobson and Wilde play central characters (as did Penn), they do not receive star billing. They are credited under an "Also Starring" rubric, with their names appearing after the opening sequence.

Now that they're together, House and Cuddy try to establish a normal relationship. Meanwhile, the team comes to the aid of an ailing Prionceton neurosurgeon but discover that they need House's help... and House is nowhere to be found.
