House – Season 6 Goodies (some spoilers)

I’m a big ‘House’ fan. I got hooked from watching season 5 with a good friend of mine. I also watched seasons 1-4 sparingly throughout the summer. I think the character of ‘House’ is exaggerated for entertainment, drama, and shock value. I think, sometimes, they over-do some of the scenes and dialogue, making House seem cruel, when I don’t think that’s the intent at all.

Through surfing the internet over recent weeks, I’ve come across some interesting interviews and videos promoting season 6 (which starts tonight at 8pm). Here’s what I’ve found:

I found a couple of interviews with Hugh Laurie and series creator David Shore a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t bother to make note of the websites. So, here’s what I copy and pasted. If anyone knows the websites, I’m more than happy to give credit where it’s due.

"That’s part of my job, to make things as real and believable as they can be."
-Hugh Laurie

Q: what is your favorite episode of dr house?
Hugh Laurie: Not sure about episodes. I haven’t seen them all yet. But I have favourite moments…

Q: Any scoop on upcoming guest stars? And who would you like to guest?
Hugh Laurie: I will try and get ET. [Emma Thompson] She’s awful busy….

Q: Would you ever consider directing an episode of House?
Hugh Laurie: I’d love to direct, as the cliche goes, but then I’d lose any right to complain about how hard I work – and I do love my complaining…..

Q: hugh are you a huddy fan like many of us?
Hugh Laurie: If it’s done well, why not?

Q: Do you have any favorite TV shows? (other than your own, that is)
Hugh Laurie: Daily show

Q: Hi! do you think you would make friends with Gregory House?
Hugh Laurie: I think I wd like GH – friends, not so sure

Q: please tell the writers that we miss the clinic scenes, we would love to see them more often!
Hugh Laurie: I will tell them – I think they miss them too but struggle to fit them in sometimes

Q: How many hours a day are you on the set?
Hugh Laurie: Varies. we’re trying to keep it down to 12 a day, otherwise people burn out

Q: Does acting like House become easy for you by now?
Hugh Laurie: I never find acting easy. Always nervous. Every shot.

Q: Is it hard talking in the american accent?
Hugh Laurie: Yeah. Or is it yeeeaah, or yep?

Q: What has been the most difficult scene for you to shoot?
Hugh Laurie: Wilson on speed

Q: Do you have to practice being Dr. Crankypants or does it just come naturally for you?
Hugh Laurie: I am naturally cranky. It’s how they found me.

Q: What is the greatest challenge in playing House?
Hugh Laurie: Just getting it right. Getting it as good as the scripts deserve

TVG: Will Amber [Anne Dudek] be back?
DS: No.

TVG: Is Foreman taking over the day-to-day running of the team?
DS: In a way, yes. As with anything, though, we try to make it more complicated than that, but yeah.

Having him just coming out of an institution, we didn’t want to throw him into a relationship initially. We want to deal with his mental health a little bit. House is trying to be a more mature person. And failing more often than not.

TVG: Are Cameron and Chase coming back to their old jobs?
David Shore: They will be back in their old jobs, in a sense. After the House two-hour episode, we needed to give other people responsibilities, and we shook the team up a bit, and are having a little bit of fun with it. We’re bringing them up front and centre for a little bit, for a few episodes certainly. And we’re enjoying [what we’re doing with their characters] so far.

Primarily, what we’re trying to do at the beginning of this year is House’s search for change, and whether he can or wants to change. It’s fundamentally the same character, but he’s also just trying to make his life just a little bit better. And trying to take the high road.
