two Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards and five Emmy Award nominations. FOX's hit medical drama also stars Omar Epps, Robert Sean Leonard and Olivia Wilde.

On the big screen, Laurie lends his voice to the animated children's comedy "Hop," as E.B.'s dad, the Easter Bunny.

In spring 2011, Warner Bros. Records released Laurie's New Orleans blues album worldwide. The album, produced by two-time Grammy Award winner Joe Henry, will feature both musical and vocal collaborations. Laurie, who has played piano for much of his life, is predominantly self-taught and has been singing, performing and writing music throughout his career.

Laurie will next be seen, opposite Catherine Keener and Leighton Meester, in the independent film "The Oranges" and in the Sony Pictures Animation feature "Arthur Christmas," with James McAvoy and Bill Nighy, to be released Thanksgiving 2011.

Hugh Laurie was educated at Eton and Cambridge University, where he took a degree in anthropology. Hugh Laurie also rowed in the University Boat Race of 1980, and would have continued in the sport but for a bout of glandular fever, which led him to convalesce in the gentler environs of the theater. Hugh Laurie was elected president of the venerable Footlights Revue, where he produced "The Cellar Tapes" along with Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson. The show won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival of 1981 and got all three of them acting for money.

In 2009, Laurie lent his voice to Jeffrey Katzenberg's 3D-animated hit "Monsters vs Aliens," alongside Reese Witherspoon and Seth Rogen. His other film credits include director David Ayer's "Street Kings," opposite Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker; "Flight of the Phoenix," opposite Dennis Quaid; "Peter's Friends," directed by and co-starring Kenneth Branagh; "Sense and Sensibility," with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet; "Cousin Bette"; "The Man in the Iron Mask"; "101 Dalmatians"; "Stuart Little"; and "Stuart Little 2."

Laurie previously starred in a number of groundbreaking British television comedy series including four seasons of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie," which he co-wrote for the BBC with Stephen Fry; three seasons of "Blackadder," written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton; and three seasons of "Saturday Live." In addition, four seasons of "Jeeves and Wooster," based on the novels of P.G. Wodehouse, aired on PBS's "Masterpiece Theatre" from 1990 to 1995.

On American television, Laurie portrayed Vincente Minnelli, opposite Judy Davis, in the network telefilm "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows." He also appeared in "Tracey Takes On… and Friends."

In addition to acting, Laurie has directed television programs and commercials, composed and recorded numerous original songs and written articles for London's The Telegraph. Mandarin Publishing has printed four volumes of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" scripts and his first novel, "The Gun Seller," was published in both the U.K. and the U.S. to critical acclaim and has been adapted into a screenplay for MGM.

When he films "House," Laurie lives in Los Angeles.

This was really season ending that I was hoping for. House got what he needed- Hope. This season really completed full circle. I can't wait for next season. Hugh managed to put his character on a whole new level, and I believe that he put a lot of his own personality in this great character.
