Hugh Laurie is set to quit ‘House,’ reports CTV.
The British actor, who plays Dr. Gregory House in the medical drama, thinks his run on the show will soon come to an end after shooting on the eighth season concludes this summer.
“The end of that season, right now looks like the end of the show. Well, that’s as far as they’ve got me for,” said Laurie.
Of all things, the 51-year-old star is now focusing on his debut solo blues album ‘Let Them Talk,’ which he is promoting with performances throughout Europe this month.
“The acting muscles don’t know what they’re doing, actually. Perhaps they should, but they don’t. There’s very little about this. I don’t know maybe there’s a repetitive action in music — if you do your scales and your fingers are nimble, then there are certain things you just know you can do without too much difficulty.”
“Acting for some reason isn’t like that. It doesn’t become automated in quite the same way.”
Hugh, who moved to Los Angeles for the show in 2003, recently admitted he was surprised at the success of ‘House’ but was growing disillusioned with it. ”I never thought this would last seven years, just two weeks I thought. I get tired of getting up at four in the morning. Some days are harder than others.”
I can’t imagine the show without him as the antagonistic Dr. House, so I’m pretty sure if he leaves the show will end. I never liked the show, I personally found him a very annoying character, but I’m sure many will be saddened by this news.
The infamous blonde wing and cowboy boots are being hung up. Perhaps for good.
After about a year of speculation, a Disney representative confirmed that the Hannah Montana show will end after the fourth and final season.
After four years, serial drama “Prison Break” is coming to an end. “Prison Break had a hell of a run, but the run has ended,” Kevin Reilly, president of Fox, told reporters attending the TV Critics Press Tour.
Although the show’s ratings went down this season, Reilly said that’s not the reason for the TV show’s abrupt end, “The show has just played out. You get to a point creatively where you feel all the stories have been told, and you want to end strong and not gimp out in the end of the season.”
According to Reilly, “Prison Break” fans still have four new episodes to watch and there are “a couple more they’re contemplating.” These “couple more” episodes could lead to a TV movie according to E! Online.
“It just got down to the point where a lot of the stories have been told, but they’ll go out strong,” Reilly assures.
