When House ends, presumably this year, Hugh Laurie will retire from working in front of the camera on TV. He told UK’s Daily Record that he feels he “no longer a desirable commodity for TV,” adding “I think I have been rather spoiled here. I can’t imagine there will be another one quite like this. I think I will probably be as interested by either writing or producing or directing, or some other aspect. I find the whole field of it fascinating. And I think I am extremely lucky to have had the one shot that I have had at it and I wouldn’t go looking for lightning to strike twice.” But lightening has striken twice for other stars like it has for Tom Selleck, Simon Cowell, Johnny Galecki and David Boreanaz to name a few. I hope he decides to stay in TV because I would love to see him do a show with his native accent.
Before he say adios to TV, catch him in House tonight on Fox at 9p while you still can!
