"Especially now, I have to emphasize how much I owe to David Shore and all the writers on House. Without them, I wouldn't even know how to finish this sentence."

Friday Night Live, produced by Geoffrey Perkins, now head of comedy at the BBC, attained considerable status during its heyday from 1986-88. Hosted by Ben Elton, it took the form of a cabaret show and launched the careers of a new type of politically correct but brash comedian.

November 5, 2007 - From the official Fox site, the show answers fan questions.
We here at House get asked a lot of questions about the show and instead of ignoring you for another 3 seasons (my suggestion), they’ve assigned me to Clinic duty. I’m the Anonymous Doctor and I’ll be answering your questions.

Before taking up residence in "House," Hugh Laurie starred in (and directed) this comedic English series, playing general practitioner Paul Slippery, a man working in the London suburb of Putney and dealing--rather badly--with his advancing age. Slippery's bawdy escapades revolve around his eccentric coworkers, his promiscuous sons, and faltering relations with a wife he suspects may have turned into a lesbian. All six episodes of the series are presented. 6 hrs. total. Soundtrack: English.

Apparently Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue is a Gregory House Fan. Contact Music
MOTLEY CRUE bassist NIKKI SIXX has replaced drugs with a new addiction - the TV show HOUSE. The reformed hell-raiser, 48, is now a clean-living family man - but he still feels an affinity with roguish figures, like Hugh Laurie's character Gregory House. Sixx says, "He is such an asshole I can't help but root for him. Maybe there's a little bit of me in there."
...and is Greg House a Motley Crue fan?

Yahoo news has the video clip of the segment about Hugh shown on Fox and Friends a couple of weeks ago.
The 1990 Ben Elton play "Gasping" is being produced in the United States. From The Boston Globe:
How did Theatre on Fire, a tiny fledgling company, manage to mount the US premiere of a West End hit? Granted, Ben Elton's "Gasping" debuted in London quite a while ago: in 1990, at Theatre Royal Haymarket, with Hugh Laurie as the lead. At that point, Elton, a popular writer-comedian, was still sailing on the success of BBC's "Blackadder" series; he hadn't yet fallen out of favor - and sacrificed his edgy cred - for collaborating with the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber...READ MORE

TV.com features video clips from the SMA benefit on the 8th. "Between Takes"
Hugh was honored with the Valley Community Clinic Visionary Award on Oct 10th.
"I really am incredibly moved by this. Of course I feel a complete fool standing here before you," Laurie told the crowd at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. "I pretend to be a doctor to pretend patients with pretend illnesses. Here I am being honored by doctors. That seems to me to be ... backward. This feeling of fakeness is all the more acute because I am the son of a doctor."
Laurie, who is British, talked about Britain's national healthcare system, which he said is far from perfect, but he added, "When you are at your weakest, there is someone there to take care of you. It is something. This whole business of healthcare from cradle to grave is so embedded in my bones."

Emmy Nominee Hugh Laurie’s Doctor is in the “House”
By Stacey Silberman - HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 9/13/07 British actor playing American doctor Hugh Laurie is one happy camper. ...READ MORE
Tom O'Neil thinks James Gandolfini likely to win the Emmy, but Hugh has an excellent chance. The Envelope
Gandolfini is considered the favorite by many pundits and oddsmakers (Sopranos last season, unforgettable character) but Hugh is getting plenty of respect and indeed most agree he is more than deserving of the award. Whether or not Hugh leaves with a trophy Sunday evening, to be nominated and so respected by peers, critics and fans alike is a tremendous accomplishment. Hughlaurie.net wishes Hugh and all involved with House the very best this very busy weekend!
September 12, 2007 - Nice photo of BFTV celebs from In Touch Weekly online.
Greg Grunberg is a hero in more ways than one. In addition to playing mind reader Matt on the hit NBC drama Heroes, he is also the founding member of the Band From TV. Greg keeps the beat on the drums, while Desperate Housewives' James Denton channels his inner guitar god, and The Bachelor's Bob Guiney along with Cashmere Mafia star Bonnie Somerville provide lead vocals. On keyboards, House's Hugh Laurie rounds out the all-star cast. Band From TV plays gigs in an effort to raise money for the UCLA Epilepsy wing, where Greg's oldest son Jake is currently being treated. "It is the coolest thing to include my friends and those actors I admire in a rock 'n' roll fantasy experience that raises money for charity... and we ROCK DA HIZZY!" Band From TV will be performing live at TV Guide's Emmy after- party at Les Deux in Hollywood on Sunday, September 16, along with Grammy-winning artist John Legend.

September 5, 2007 - Hugh has been announced as a presenter for the Emmy Awards on the 16th. Lucky us!! ETonline
Band From TV will also be performing at the TV Guide after party again this year.
Speaking of TV Guide, this week's issue features coverage of the Emmy Awards to be broadcast on Fox, Sunday September 16th. Matt Roush had this to say about Hugh's chances: "If there's a Sopranos sweep, James Gandolfini's a favorite. But House's Hugh Laurie is way overdue, and he has earned it."
The issue also features an ad for the show with a tiny photo of Hugh and the dinner menu for the Governors Ball, with a mention of the BFTV performance.
The official Fox website offers this video clip from the season premiere of House. (Sept.25th) Obviously it is spoilery! House plays the guitar.
A young animator from China, Dick Ma, sent this email regarding an animation he is working on with Greg House as his subject. The work so far is posted on youtube. He explains the process and why he needs some funding to finish. It's very interesting - it appears adding House's hair is a difficult process. Anyway, check it out! hughlaurie.net wishes him much luck in his promising career.
My name is Dick Ma, 28 from Hong Kong, China.
I just would like to tell you that I am working on a 3D animation that featured Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House. The above link is the production process of Dr House. The animation last for about 1 min and it will be featured as my demo reel.
This is a more technically-based demo reel as it is a challenge to translate Dr House facial characteristics into another format of presentation. And of course I am a fan of the TV series.
The reason of writing this mail is about I would like your site to promote this news to people who love Hugh Laurie. And I have a purpose to raising fund and sponsor for this animation.
The animation currently now is in the production state that needs to use the renderfarm service to produce animation frames. The amount of fund-raising will just pay for the rendering service. (personally I cannot do rendering on my own: 3 layers of images for a single frame and 1 layer cost rendering time of 15 mins. and I have to deal with 1965 frames for just 1 min animation.)
Here I promise for the people who donate with a minimum of US$35 will have a DVD of animation in return and for the people who donate over US$50 will have a DVD and the donator can leave his/her name in the animation as acknowledgement.
September 3, 2007 - I have finally added the "All or Nothing at All" page. It includes nearly 500 screencaps, some hires publicity photos and an article from The Radio Times.
According to Tom O'Neil over at Gold Derby, Hugh was considered by Fox as a possible Emmy host. Did they ask him and he turned it down? Did they not asked him for fear the poor audience might become hopelessly confused? (as stated by the Fox PR people). Only the shadow knows. ;-) Anyway, Ryan Seacrest is hosting:
Fox Network came thisclose to naming someone other than "American Idol" emcee Ryan Seacrest as host of the Emmycast on Sept. 16: Hugh Laurie.
Laurie was actually the early first choice of several top Fox exex, who lobbied strongly for him to get the job, according to a TV academy source. Others tubthumped for Seacrest, who's a logical choice since he already hosts America's most popular regular TV program plus specials like New Year's Eve countdowns. The standoff at the network was to blame for any host being named so late. Last year Conan O'Brien's appointment was unveiled in mid-May three months before the Seacrest announcement this year.
In the end, Fox decided to go with its "Idol" star over its "House" star because exex felt Seacrest would draw a larger TV audience and because viewers might be confused seeing Laurie in an unfamiliar role.
But Laurie, in fact, is an accomplished entertainer beyond just that Doctor Grouch act you see on "House." He's a darn good pianist, for one thing. He performs in a few bands 16:9 and Poor White Trash and tickles the ivories in the "House" episode he submitted to Emmy judges in the race for best drama actor, "Half-Wit."
Entertainment Weekly online also mentions the story (along with dozens of other RSS feeders), but they get the prize for posting this great photo of Hugh and Stephen!
The Fox Fall Preview aired Sunday evening featured a trailer for the upcoming House season set to the music "Dancing With Myself." It's nothing terribly different than the promos they've been running as of late and featured at marykir.com, but it's not "here" yet. I'll post it tomorrow. Screencapping over five hours of "All or Nothing at All" about did me in.
House producer Katie Jacobs is featured in Los Angeles Confidental under "The Producers" No mention of Hugh, but interesting tidbits about KJ and her goals.
August 29, 2007 - Fox 11 KTLA has posted the entire BFTV segment, which also features comments by other House cast members.
August 28, 2007 - Fox 11 News - LA (August 28, following House) featured a tiny "interview" with Hugh about BFTV (session footage included). I say tiny because they only aired a snippet and cut the rest off. It would have been nice to have seen the entire interview. Maybe it will show up eventually? 43 second vid clip and screencaps.
August 26, 2007 - Great clip of Hugh's appearance on the 2003 Clive Anderson show - God Almighty. Guests on the show are given a chance to be God. Hugh talks about color schemes, Mrs. God, his dog's testicles, critics, the baggage claim, road repairs and Robert Mitchum. Did you know that Hugh Laurie is a funny guy?? Yes. He is. :-) The clip is a mov file, 109 MB and 23 minutes long. No doubt it will require some patience to download, but it's worth it. "Right click" and "save" to your desktop. Video clip of God Almighty. Screencaps
Scan of the August 27 issue of TV Guide can be found on the House Season Four Page under 4.01- Alone. Spoilers.
Hugh Laurie Fan has a few medium sized photos of Hugh on the set of Nightwatch/The Night Watchman
August 20, 2007 - New House season 4 promo pics have been added to the House Season Four Page (warning: There are some season 4 spoilerly things/photos on that page).
Variety also features mentions of Hugh in an article about the Best Actor nominees. Right mix births Emmy Contenders. [excerpt]
Katie Jacobs, executive producer of "House," is also of the belief that the credit for both a show and an actor's success at Emmy time has to be spread around.
"I don't think 'House' would work on this level at all without Hugh. For sure, I can say that the character would not be what it is today without Hugh because of his comic sense of timing, his musical ability and the fact that as an actor, he invites you into his inner life," Jacobs says.
Marykir has kindly donated the mov file she's compiled of Hugh's excerpts from the recently aired (in the UK) Stephen Fry: 50 Not Out. Clips and screencaps (I did these myself :) can be found on the Video Page. Marykir has an avi file on her site as well.
The bonus material starts on disc one, with another of the show's great "Valley Girl Takes," an alternate scene delivery by Edelstein and Morrison. This time, the scene from "Cane & Able," is an "Angry Valley Girl Version," which has them swapping swears and "likes" with California style. If only they would do a whole episode like this, just so Laurie could get in on the fun.
After giving us two audio commentaries last time around, we get just one, from executive producer David Shore and executive producer/director Katie Jacobs, on "Half Wit." These creators get along well and have a lot of info to share, which makes for a fun and informative track that will be enjoyable for the show's audience.
The remainder of the extras are found on the final DVD, starting with a 5:30 blooper reel, which shows how much fun the cast seems to have while shooting and screwing up. It's followed by the 21-minute "Anatomy of an Episode: 'The Jerk'" which breaks down the production effort on this excellent episode, through on-set footage and interviews. It's a solid behind-the-scenes featurette, delivered in anamorphic widescreen and actually has Laurie speaking in his natural voice. It also has a couple of hints as to what is coming in season four.
Laurie fans get more from him in the seven-minute featurette on Band from TV, a charity all-star band that developed from the season-two episode "Sex Kills," co-starring Greg Grunberg ("Heroes.") With Grunberg on drums, Laurie on piano, Bob Guiney ("The Bachelor") on vocals and Lester Holt (NBC News) on guitar, along with David Foster acting as producer, it's certainly an interesting side project, worthy of a featurette that joins them in the studio for a recording session and several interviews.
Things wrap up with a pair of production featuettes, starting with the three-and-a-half minute "Open House," a tour of the show's production offices, led by Jacobs, and shot during production of the season finale. Shot seemingly completely off-the-cuff, it's a quick and dirty peek at the people who create the show. One group, the props crew, gets more screen time in "Blood, Needles and Body Parts," a 3:30 look at all the bits and pieces used to imitate the show's medical procedures, hosted by property master Tyler Patton.
August 12, 2007 - I have added a bunch of hires photos to the Jeeves and Wooster page.
Check out Hugh singing "You can't always get what you Want" with BFTV for the soon to be released House MD Soundtrack (Sept 18th) at the housesountrack myspace. They also feature a list of songs to featured on the CD.
New York Magazine says Hugh is one of the best bargains on TV:
Hugh Laurie, until he inevitably renegotiates his contract, is one of the best deals on TV; he's indisputably the star and the major draw of House, and each dollar he's paid brings in a full 2.69 viewers.
Interesting read from Discover Magazine about the "Real Doctor House." Thomas Bolte solves the medical mysteries no one else can.
Added a couple of clips and screencaps from last months Emmy reactions to the video page.
July 30, 2007 - Jane Berliner, the director of Voices for Children, Save the Childen, has written to tell us that Hugh has officially chosen Save The Children as his charity of choice to receive money raised via Band From TV appearances. Hugh was kind enough to wear a t-shirt bearing their logo at his BFTV appearance last weekend. They now have a page set up for him on the official site, so give it visit! Lisa Edelstein is also involved in this very worthy charity and is on the honorary committee for their 75th anniversary celebration.
July 27, 2007 - The first promo photos for the season premiere of House can be found on the House season four page, as well as interviews and tidbits from the TCA and other season four info/spoilers.

How does Laurie interact with his fans? "I don't," he jokes. "I have a little man [who does it for me]." On a serious note, he says, "I think people are entertained by House; he's worth putting up with. He saves lives. That's a pretty endearing quality. If you're staring death in the face, it's [actually] a very endearing quality."

Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune did a nice write-up of the press tour, including alot of upcoming House info. Spoilers abound, but this from Hugh:
“I will add that the first three scripts that I read of this season are not only three of the best ‘House’ scripts I've ever read, they're three of the best scripts I've ever read,” Laurie said. “It may be that in the execution of it, we'll make a dreadful hash of it and you'll go, ‘Well, I don't see what the fuss was about. That was a terrible piece of television.’ But purely as scripts, I find them absolutely phenomenal.
“I've never read anything that so ambitiously tries to mix broad comedy and gut-wrenching tragedy and philosophical musings and bizarre literary references all in the space of five seconds,” Laurie continued. “The speed with which it jumps from tone to tone is quite phenomenally ambitious.”

An unhappy television writer recounts his evening at the party [excerpt]
I had a publicist who totally blew me off when it came time for a one-on-one with Kiefer Sutherland. Julianna Margulies snubbed reporters in a very cold fashion. Parker Posey had an absolute meltdown and exited the gala, and even the kindly star of House, Hugh Laurie, grew increasingly frustrated with a party that was not set up to handle interviews.
What idiot thinks it's a good idea to have a party at a carnival pier, with music turned up at full volume? Hugh became so frustrated at having to shout over the loudspeakers that he stopped doing interviews.

> Some enterprising House fans sent this email (many of you have probably seen this already as I am late in getting it posted)
Dear fellow House fan,
There is much buzz on the FOX message boards about having a House MD Convention next year in May. The organizers are in contact with FOX and they are showing interest in the idea. To make things a bit easier for an upcoming meeting with FOX, it would be helpful to show them real data gauging interest. The convention is in the planning stages and no venue has been decided upon. Locations under consideration include Los Angeles, California, New York City, New York and Princeton, New Jersey. Again I want to stress that this is all preliminary. The meeting with FOX will be sometime this summer.
To that end I have placed a petition link here that we would greatly appreciate if you would add it to your site. There is an option to vote either yes or no. Please remember this is to show FOX our interest in such an event. It is no guarantee the event will be held.
Please let other fans know of this link as every Yes vote counts.

There is a behind the scenes feature on House in the lastest issue of Emmy Magazine. I don't have my copy yet, but of course will post it when I do. Unless someone else out there would like to donate. Speaking of donating, I want to thank the people who have sent various scans of magazines the past few months. I've been a terrible webmistess and haven't gotten around to posting them yet. I've been thinking of creating a live journal for this site where fans can post the articles themselves and don't have have to rely on my to do it. Only legit articles. No tabloids.
Jennifer sent this scan from Rage Magazine about Jeeves and Wooster:
Lily Burana, who wrote this delightful article about her crush on Hugh for Salon Magazine, wrote to give her blessing to link to it and share with like-minded souls:
Hugh Laurie is the thinking woman's celebrity crush. But will my Google habit feed this obsession or kill it?

Entertainment Weekly review of the House season finale
May 23, 2007 - Hugh received his OBE from the Queen today at Buckingham Palace. Congratulations Hugh! No photos have been spotted yet, but hopefully some will trickle in soon.
From the BBC:
Queen hands OBE to actor Laurie
Hugh Laurie has won Golden Globe awards for two years running
British actor Hugh Laurie, star of US hospital drama House, has been made an OBE by the Queen.
The 47-year-old star attended a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, where he was honoured for services to acting.
Laurie recently won two Golden Globes for his role as cantankerous doctor Gregory House, but he has been part of Britain's comedy elite for years.
He is best known in the UK for his two TV series with Stephen Fry - Jeeves and Wooster and sketch show Fry and Laurie.
Laurie is also a star of the big screen, appearing in such films as 101 Dalmatians, Sense and Sensibility and Stuart Little.
May 22, 2007 - Various blurbs from the May 28 issue of TV Guide. Spoilers!
From Television Week, May 21:
Marykir reports that the latest issue of The Works magazine asks certain celebrities what their guilty viewing pleasures are. This is Hugh's:
"The Big Lebowski. I could watch it right now. I could watch any 10 minutes of it, or the whole thing right now. I would be going 'Quiet, everyone, quiet,' we could project it on the wall of the hotel. But I wouldn't call it a guilty pleasure, it's a proud pleasure."
From the Hollywood Reporter: 'House' helps rewrite TV categories
Speaking of "House," here's a good joke: The finest actor on TV, Hugh Laurie, wasn't nominated for an Emmy last year for his bravura work on the show. It has been 10 months, and I still haven't stopped laughing.

Hugh and others congratulate The Simpsons on their 400th episode. Video clip.
“We've wanted to do something with the sort of attention we've been receiving as a show,” show star Hugh Laurie told Access Hollywood. “It was Dr. David Foster who came up with the suggestion. It just seemed to fit. It was a sort of semi-neglected area in some ways that you know people tend not to think so much about this terrible blight.”
The TV Guide Channel featured Hugh and House in several clips from their April 29 special: 25 Things You Didn't Know About TV Doctors. I haven't had time to edit the clips and post screencaps for this site yet, but if you haven't seen it yet - marykir.com has the goodies. Much of this is previous footage from other TV Guide features, although there is a new blurb from the House-ism Charity T-shirt announcement.
More info from the Orange County Flyers and the Band From TV appearance - Thanks to Mike Lopez, Director of Operations:
If anyone purchases a ticket to the baseball game on July 21st they will automatically be guaranteed the ability to purchase a ticket to the concert for an additonal ($5-$10 that will end up all going to charity). The concert is to be held at the football stadium adjacent to our baseball field. So when the game is over fans can get up and walk (less than 150 feet) to the football field and buy their ticket and then get seated. I'm not sure if there is different levels of seating for the concert yet.
May 1, 2007 - Hugh is featured on one of 4 different covers for the May 7th issue of TV Guide. Here is the article. Beware - spoilers for House abound. My copy didn't have Hugh on the cover, but much thanks to Krista for sending this one.

"Fox Searchlight lines up 'Night' pair
Laurie, Evans to join cast of crime drama
By PETER GILSTRAP
Hugh Laurie and Chris Evans are looking to work the "Night" shift.
Fox Searchlight and New Regency are lining up Laurie (TV's "House") and Evans ("The Fantastic Four") to join the cast of the James Ellroy-penned crime drama "Night Watch," previously titled "The Night Watchman."
David Ayer is directing; Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker already are onboard to star.
Plot centers around a Los Angeles cop, Reeves, who's become wedded to the bottle after his wife's death and is framed by a onetime mentor, Whitaker, for the killing of a fellow officer. Laurie and Evans would play internal affairs officers.

The Age asked Lisa Edelstein what is most fun playing Dr. Cuddy: [excerpt]
Working with Hugh Laurie, who's an incredible actor. And I like being on a show that is smart and funny and that I am not embarrassed at being on. It's fun to have the same job for a few years, to develop a character. I enjoy my outfits, although my shoes aren't the most pleasant thing to experience.
Many of you may have seen these already, but if not or you had trouble viewing them, Fox 59 in Indianapolis has a series of Hugh inteviews where he talks about working with Dave Mathews, music and other topics, as well as a couple of behind the scenes clips. The official Fox site features some, but not all of these.
A Detroit News interview last month with Bob Guiney mentions Band From TV spending the weekend they recorded the House MD soundtrack tunes at music producer David Foster's Malibu mansion:
I play in this other band, Band From TV. I'm the lead singer, Hugh Laurie from "House" plays piano, Greg Gunberg -- who plays the cop who reads people's minds on "Heroes" -- he's the drummer, and James Denton from "Desperate Housewives" is our guitar player. Everything we do we give to charity. We were asked to do two songs for the upcoming "House" soundtrack, and last weekend we spent all weekend at (super producer) David Foster's Malibu (Calif.) mansion. It was one of those moments where you walk out and look around and ask yourself, 'How did I end up here?' And that would have never happened had I not done "The Bachelor."
Bob also told mlive.com he and Hugh were invited to the mansion to lay down more vocal tracks:
"I was so fired up (to record with Foster)," he said. "I just would have never expected a cover band to get me to the point where all of a sudden I'm recording with David Foster in the Capitol Records basement.
"Fat Amy recorded in the Capitol Records basement, but I'd never been in Studio A, that's for sure. T-Bone Burnett walks in, we all meet him. It was an amazing experience."
At Capitol, Guiney was surprised when he and Laurie were invited to Foster's six-acre Malibu estate to record more vocals.
"I walk into the vocal room, and it's gold and silver records from Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, and I'm looking around, saying 'Oh my God, and I'm supposed to sing in here?'
"It was such an awesome experience; it was the greatest day, and so humbling. He is such a cool guy for all his accolades and everything he's done ... He's this amazing producer, but he was humble and sweet and nice to us. He made us feel like we were so important."

The most recent issue of Backstage West features an article about child actors, including several mentions of child actors who have guest starred on House. The published issue features several promo photos from the show (nothing new). The paper is too unwieldy to scan, but fortunately, it's online! Comments from Sasha Pieterse, Andie in Autopsy, are featured. She had this to say about Hugh:
"I could think about my grandfather, my aunt, and God, too," Sasha recalls. "The woman who played my mother, Jewel Christian, had to cry a lot. She was amazing. And Hugh Laurie helped me a lot to get to that emotional stage. He got me into character and made me really feel like I had cancer -- like I was about to die."
Visit Sasha's website for several behind the scenes photos from House.
A couple of photos of Hugh with the Repsol replica auctioned by the Red Cross, courtesy of Lance. Pictured with Hugh is Greg, who built the bike.
I won't get around to screencaps from Fetal Position until the weekend, but I'm sure I'm not alone in loving the black and white photographs featured in the episode. THIS one would be great as Hugh's new headshot. ;-)
Article from the New York Times about the rush to sign British talent for American televion shows. Hugh is given credit for opening the door:
So why are so many British actors so interested so suddenly in American television? Mainly it can be traced back to the most significant factor of all. “Hugh Laurie opened the door,” Ms. Buck said.
Mr. Laurie, the star of the Fox hit “House,” made a name as a British actor in roles like Bertie Wooster. Now as the irascible Dr. House, Mr. Laurie has won wide acclaim, not only for his characterization but also for his utterly convincing American accent.
He is also setting the standard for his compatriots. Ms. Buck said she has always tried to enlist British performers. This year many are saying yes.
Some of that too is attributable to Mr. Laurie. “They all seem to know each other over there,” Ms. Klein said. Ms. Bromstad said there was some fear that Mr. Laurie would drive the British recruits away by describing how tough the schedule is for a lead actor in an American series, which typically shoots far more episodes a year than a British series does.
“But Hugh has been very gracious and encouraging,” Ms. Bromstad said.
This is a month old, but E! Online's Kristen interviewed House producer Katie Jacobs about what lies ahead. Spoilers galore. Thanks Jules.

This photo is from this recent interview with Stephen Fry (originally published in the Radio Times) that many of you might have read, as I'm behind in my updates. Stephen wonders some if British actors might be overated in America due their posh sounding accent.
The above Stephen Fry story was published in several UK newspapers. These reader comments and photo are from today's Evening Standard
March 23, 2007 - Press photos for House episode 3.19 - Act Your Age - in the House Season Three page. UK fans have been treated with several articles lately promoting the start of season three.

RollingStone.com compares Hugh to a rock star and features an interview with Katie Jacobs about the music on House, with several mentions of Hugh and his contributions to the music selections. The recent article, with photo, is also posted.
In the realm of current TV stars, Hugh Laurie is about as rock star as you can get. The guy rides a motorcycle, plays in a band called Band From TV (other members include James Denton from Desperate Housewives on guitar and Greg Grunberg from Heroes on drums), and can often be found sporting a James Dean-ish leather jacket and shades. Laurie may not be the latter-day Elvis, but he’s as close as any small-screen star has come in recent memory; a slew of fan sites, including one called EmbraceTheHughLove.com, devote countless megabytes to his worship
Recent photos of Hugh sailing, and with his wife Jo on the Triumph can be found in the most recent issues of In Touch, US Magazine, and People.

March 16, 2007 - Lester Holt talks about his Band From TV recording experience last weekend. Be sure to tape Weekend Today tomorrow morning (Sat) [excerpts]
Turns out in addition to being a terrific actor and musician, Hugh Laurie is also a heck of a musical arranger. We did his funk rendition of “Minnie the Moocher,” along with a reggae-inspired version of “Can’t Always Get what you Want.”
The “House” soundtrack will be released sometime this summer, and you can then judge for yourself whether we’re better off keeping our “day jobs.” In the meantime, my story on our session will air this coming Saturday (3/17) on Weekend TODAY. It was an experience I won’t soon forget. I made some great new friends. Some you know from TV, some you don’t. But all of them are blessed with big hearts and raw talent, whose music will always leave you on just the right note.

Speaking of, they are recording the tracks this weekend with special guest bass player Lester Holt from NBC. Thanks to amysusanne for posting the original New York Post blurb over at TWoP:
Speaking of "Today," "Weekend Today" co-anchor Lester Holt, who plays bass (who knew?), will join NBC promo exec Frank Radice (guitar), "Heroes" star Greg Grunberg, James Denton, Hugh Laurie and others this weekend to cut two cover songs for a compilation of music from "House" (produced by NBC Studios).
