It was bad enough to find myself attracted to the brooding, dark Gregory House. Now, after watching The Actor’s Studio, I find I’m attracted to the brooding, dark Hugh Laurie. What might a shrink say?

He’s quite a talent and seeing him interviewed really emphasized how impressive his American accent is. Wow. No trace of it on the show at all. I liked his observations about the character and his overall offbeat sensibility. And he wrote a novel!

Cool guy.
