Is Hugh Laurie Returning To TV?

1/7/2016 12:06pm EST
TCA Buzz: Hugh Laurie Returning To TV In Hulu Thriller
Former House star Hugh Laurie is making his return to television with Chance, a new drama series on Hulu. The streaming service announced that it has picked up the show's first and second seasons during Wednesday's Television Critics Association press tour.

Adapted from the novel of the same name by Kem Nunn, Chance centers on Eldon Chance (played by Laurie), a forensic neuropsychiatrist who gets in over his head in San Francisco. Other casting news will be announced later, but Hulu has already ordered two ten-episode seasons and is aiming for a premiere later this year.

The series will b...

Hugh Laurie Can't Shake 'House' Set Habit

5/26/2015 4:56pm EDT
Hugh Laurie Still Walks With The Limp He Developed While Playing
It's been three years since actor Hugh Laurie played Dr. Gregory House on the hit Fox TV show that shared the character's name, but if you were to see Laurie walking around today, you might think he's still acting in character.

Laurie said during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show that the limp he developed specifically for the character of House during the show's eight-year run still shows up when he's on the set of other projects.

"I can't remember any of the lines at all, but when 'action' is shouted I start limping," he said. "I'm like a dog that's been prodded with electrodes."...

Quentin Tarantino, Hugh Laurie Have A Blast At Mardi Gras
Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino helped kick off the carnival celebrations for Mardi Gras by reigning over the annual Orpheus Parade in New Orleans, La., on Monday.

The Greek figure Orpheus, son of Apollo and Calliope, was a legendary musician, poet, and prophet.

Tarantino was chosen as the 2014 Celebrity Monarch and led a 27-float procession through the city's streets the night before Mardi Gras.

The Orpheus event was co-founded by New Orleans native Harry Connick, Jr. in 1993. Mardi Gras traces its history back to medieval Europe, originating in Italy before gaining speed in France in the 1...

Michael Keaton Replaces Hugh Laurie In 'Robocop' Remake

8/30/2012 10:17am EDT
Michael Keaton
Michael Keaton has replaced Hugh Laurie in the Robocop remake after the Brit dropped out of negotiations earlier this month.

The House star was slated to play the evil boss of Omnicorp, the company which creates Robocop, in the reboot of the hit 1987 sci-fi classic. Laurie decided to end talks with studio bosses last week and Keaton has signed on to step into his shoes.

Announcing the casting news on Wednesday, director Jose Padilha says, "Michael is the final addition to the amazing cast we have assembled for this film, and it is so great to have the last puzzle piece in place. It is t...

Hugh Laurie To Play Villain In 'Robocop' Remake

6/13/2012 8:56am EDT
Hugh Laurie
British star Hugh Laurie has his first major role lined up following his long-running House stint - he will play a scoundrel in the new reboot of Robocop.

The actor took his final bow as moody medic Dr. Gregory House when the acclaimed series wrapped last month, and now he's set to return to the big screen in the remake of the 1987 sci-fi classic.

Laurie will play the evil boss of Omnicorp, the company which creates Robocop, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Joel Kinnaman will play the title character, a cop who is saved from death by being turned into a robotic police officer.


$16 Million Contract Puts Britney Spears On TV's Top Paid List - Behind Judge Judy

5/10/2012 11:03am EDT
Britney Spears
Britney Spears is reportedly set to rake in $16 million as a judge on The X Factor, but the incredible amount isn't nearly enough to put her on top of TV's best paid list.

Assuming The X Factor has the same amount of episodes this season (26), Spears would pocket a bit over $615,000 an episode. That makes her the second highest paid per episode in primetime currently - Ashton Kutcher makes $700,000 an episode for Two and a Half Men. She is also far behind predecessor Charlie Sheen's whopping $1.2 million an episode. It would put her ahead of William Petersen's previous salary on CSI ($600,...

'House' Recap: Man Of The House

2/21/2012 10:21am EST
Last week FOX officially announced that “House” would end at the end of this season. After eight brilliant seasons, the staff of Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital will finally be hanging up the doctors’ coats. Most speculation assumes that Hugh Laurie, who has created one of television’s most memorable characters, is ready to move on. He may be right as the last several seasons of the series have been much less exciting than the early seasons, relying mostly on the “House” formula each week.

Last night’s episode, “Man of the House,” begins laying the groundwork for the series’ inevit...

Hugh Laurie Slams Journalists For Claiming He's 'Sick' Of 'House'

2/15/2012 8:48am EST
Hugh Laurie has fired back at reports he's to blame for the end of hit medical drama "House" because he's tired of playing limping grouch Dr. Gregory House on the show.

The British actor released a statement last week confirming reports the current season of "House" will be the last - but he insists it has nothing to do with the fact he's had enough of his TV character.

In a statement he sent to TV Guide magazine, Laurie writes, "For anyone who's interested, I'd like to correct some naughty misrepresentations of the circumstances surrounding the end of the TV show House.

"Some newspapers...

Hugh Laurie Confirms 'House' Will End After This Season

2/8/2012 11:24pm EST
Hugh Laurie will hang up his cane as cranky doctor Gregory House in May after confirming hit medical drama House will end this season.

In a joint statement from Laurie and executive producers of the show David Shore and Katie Jacobs, released to the media on Wednesday, the trio announced House will not be back for a ninth season.

The press release reads, "The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years - but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to e...

'House' Recap: Better Half

1/25/2012 12:13pm EST
After a long winter break, “House” is back with one of the best episodes of this season. Season 8 of Fox’s once great medical drama has been decent overall, but not nearly as exciting as earlier seasons. “Better Half,” though, is a perfect example of why loyal fans continue to watch House’s antics week after week, year after year.

The episode focuses on a thirty-something man named Andres (Ivo Nandi) who is suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Suffering with him is his loving and devoted wife, Natalie (Melanie Lynskey), who must constantly inform Andres of where they are and wh...

'House' Recap: Perils Of Paranoia

11/29/2011 10:50am EST
“House” has definitely kept audiences guessing this season, alternating between mediocre episodes that seem beneath the long-running show and solidly clever episodes like last night’s “Perils of Paranoia.”

The episode focuses on a criminal prosecutor, Tommy (Vincent Spano), who collapses during a trial with symptoms of a heart attack. When he gets to Princeton-Plainsboro, the ER doctors determine it wasn’t a heart attack and Foreman determines it wasn’t a panic attack. The mysterious cause is right up House’s alley so he takes the case, intrigued by Foreman’s willingness to lie to a patie...

Hugh Laurie To Retire From Small Screen After 'House'

11/24/2011 6:30pm EST
Hugh Laurie-AES-045742.jpg
Hugh Laurie is ready to retire from starring on the small screen when his hit show House ends, insisting he wants to concentrate on writing and producing.

The Brit has won huge acclaim for his role as grumpy doctor Gregory House on the U.S. drama, which is currently on its eighth season.

The show has made Laurie one of the richest actors on American TV, reportedly pulling in $250,000 -per-episode.

But the star is adamant he's been lucky to have one run of major success on the small screen, and will head behind the TV cameras once House comes to a close.

He tells Britain's Daily Record, ...

'House' Recap: Dead & Buried

11/23/2011 9:53am EST
This week’s episode of “House” was a bit of an oddity for the series. For starters, the episode did not open with the typical prologue involving the medical mystery House and his team would have to solve. Instead, it gets right to the crux of the story or, more precisely, stories.

House tells his team that their new case involves the death of a four-year-old boy due to kidney failure, something that should never happen to a child that young. At the same time, Foreman informs House that he and his team have a new case of a teenage girl, Iris (Madison Davenport), who is having inexplicable ...

TV on DVD: 'Case Histories' & 'Fortysomething'

11/10/2011 1:12pm EST
Case Histories
Here's the latest in TV on DVD: Acorn Media brings us the fantastic Case Histories, and revisits the Hugh Laurie comedy Fortysomething via Acorn TV.

I haven't read the Kate Atkinson novels that Case Histories is based on, but thanks to the series, now I'm going to. As recently seen on PBS' vaunted Masterpiece Mystery! series, this is a cracking six-episode set. That's largely because it stars the very talented Jason Isaacs (of Brotherhood and The State Within fame), who has never given a bad performance in my book. He has an intensity about him coupled with physical presence that just m...

‘House’ Recap: Risky Business

11/2/2011 9:52am EDT
House 3
Because of the nature of television and the tradition of filming episodes sometimes months before they air, shows are rarely able to comment on events that are happening in the present. This week’s episode of “House,” though, echoes many of the protests that are happening with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Even though the country’s economy wasn’t doing well when the episode was filmed in the spring or summer, it is surprising how timely “Risky Business” really is.

The episode opens with a very wealthy middle-aged man, Thad (Michael Nouri), coming out of his mansion to find his trees cov...

BBC's 'Spooks' Signs Off After Nearly A Decade

10/23/2011 3:26am EDT
Today sees the final hour of Spooks, the BBC's long-running and critically acclaimed espionage drama. After ten series and almost a decade on the air, the show signs off after its 85th episode on BBC One at 9 PM tonight.

The show first aired on May 13, 2002, telling the stories of a crack team of agents for Britain's elite spy agency MI5. It rose to become an institution of British TV, its ten series (seasons) virtually unheard of for a serial drama and more than that of other feted shows like Waking The Dead and Wire In The Blood.

Along the way, it showcased a number of talented actors...

Jobless Charlie Sheen Is The Highest Paid Man On TV (See Who Else Made Big Bucks)

10/14/2011 10:00am EDT
Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen has been named the highest paid actor on TV, despite losing his job on "Two And A Half Men."

The star had a public fall-out with the show's creator Chuck Lorre earlier this year following months of bizarre behavior and he was eventually fired in March.

Ashton Kutcher took over the lead role in the hit show, but Sheen still managed to top's recent rich list.

Sheen pulled in earnings of $40 million, making him the highest paid TV actor between May, 2010, and May, 2011.

He is followed by Ray Romano, who earned $20 million for his now axed "Men of A Certain Age."


‘House’ Recap: 'Transplant'

10/12/2011 10:50am EDT
house 2
“Transplant,” the second episode of the new season of “House,” is definitely less exciting than the season opener. The main reason for this sudden shift is that in this episode the stakes for House are so much lower than when he was in prison and trying to survive the last five days of his sentence. In “Transplant,” the games aren’t nearly as thrilling because there is really nothing to lose.

The episode opens with House still in prison. He has a surprise visitor: the Dean of Medicine from his hospital. No, it’s not Cuddy. She left Princeton-Plainsboro after House ran a car through her din...

‘House’ Recap: Twenty Vicodin

10/5/2011 7:43am EDT
Season Eight begins with an episode that, while not as ambitious or nail-biting as some of the earlier shows, is a solid setup for a season that might be one of the best. Fans of the show will remember that Season Seven ended with House (Hugh Laurie) driving his car through the dining room of his ex-girlfriend/boss Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein). He then fled the country to parts unknown.

The show opens with House in front of a parole board after having served several months in prison. The scene is very reminiscent of “Ocean’s 11” and, like George Clooney as Danny Ocean, we can tell pretty qui...

Lisa Edelstein: 'I Wasn't Fired From 'House!''

Lisa Edelstein
Former House star Lisa Edelstein has hit back at reports she was fired from the hit medical drama for refusing to take a pay cut, but she doubts she'll be welcomed back for the show's final episodes next year.

The pretty brunette played Hugh Laurie's boss and lover in House and she left unexpectedly this summer amid claims she'd fallen out with TV bosses.

And although her character, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, wasn't properly written out of the show, Edelstein feels sure she won't be invited back.

She tells TV Guide magazine, "Leaving was not something I planned on doing... (but) I was definitely...

GQ's Men Of The Year Include U2, Keith Richards & Bradley Cooper

9/7/2011 8:42am EDT
Rock stars ruled GQ's Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday as U2 and Keith Richards picked up top honors at the glitzy ceremony in London.

Less than two months after wrapping their record-breaking 360 Tour, the Irish rockers were named Band of the Year at the annual bash, which recognizes the most influential men in the public eye.

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp handed Rolling Stones legend Richards the Writer of the Year prize for his autobiography, "Life."

Early 2011 Emmy Predictions: Here's Who Will Win

Ashton Kutcher Is Highest Paid TV Actor, Will Make More Than 'Two And A Half Men' Costar Jon Cryer

8/11/2011 2:04pm EDT
Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher has joined Hugh Laurie as the highest paid actor on TV in America, according to a new magazine study.

Both stars will earn $700,000-per-episode for Two And A Half Men and House, respectively, when the two high-rated shows return to TV next month, but Kutcher also reportedly has a deal in place, where he'll profit further if his sitcom is a hit.

Kutcher is replacing fired Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.

However, both actors' 2011/2012 TV salaries won't match Simon Cowell's package when he kicks off his new X Factor show - the study, carried out by TV Guide magazine, su...

Hugh Laurie will be returning to House without his girlfriend for the medical drama's eighth season.

Actress Lisa Edelstein has opted not to re-sign her contract and return for another season of the show, reports

Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps will be back with Laurie, who has hinted the next series of the hit show will be his last.

He recently told Britain's Radio Times magazine, "The end of the (eighth) season, right now, looks like the end of the show. That is as far as they have got me for."

'House' Has An Epic 'Fall From Grace,' Marries For Green Card

3/23/2011 10:54am EDT
House Fall From Grace
This week, House torments Cuddy but can’t get a rise out of her, diagnoses a young, homeless man with an allergy to vegetables, and marries a multi-tasking alien so she can get a green card. Hey kids! You really CAN be allergic to vegetables!

In the state park, two precocious boys launch a model rocket. When the parts fall from the sky aflame, they discover a young, luxuriously bearded, homeless man (Chris Marquette) has had his arm set on fire. Someone’s getting grounded for this!

House arrives at his team’s meeting on a Segway, accompanied by a gorgeous brunette. He is unimpressed with ...

'House' Takes A Dive 'Out Of The Chute'

House - Out of the Chute
Last week’s incredible “Bombshells” left the “House” writers with nowhere to go but down. Cuddy’s no longer dying, but House wishes he was, as the realization that his romance is over sinks in. Can House’s return to his bacchanalistic lifestyle ease his pain?

A young and healthy cowboy mounts a bull at a rodeo. He needs to stay seated for 8 seconds to beat the bull and win the challenge. The 8 seconds pass like minutes, as the bull furiously bucks and tries to throw the rider. The cowboy succeeds, and while the rodeo clowns lead the bull away, he faces the cheering crowd triumphantly. But ...
