Matthews to guest on ‘House’

Rocker will play a savant on March episode

Rocker Dave Matthews has signed to appear in an episode of Fox’s “House.”

In the episode, set to air in March, Matthews will play a savant who was hit by a bus when he was 10. The accident affected his mental development but suddenly gave him the ability to play the piano flawlessly despite never having taken a lesson.

Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) is brought in after the virtuoso begins suffering seizures and the character’s father (Kurtwood Smith) must decide whether to cure the impairment — and lose his son’s musical gift.

The episode marks the directorial debut of “House” exec producer Katie Jacobs.

Matthews’ track “Some Devil” appeared in a 2005 episode of “House.”

Matthews’ acting credits include the feature “Because of Winn-Dixie.” He’ll next be seen in the indie family feature “Lake City” alongside Sissy Spacek and Troy Garity.

Matthews formed the Dave Matthews Band in 1990; the group has sold more than 35 million albums and 14 million concert tickets.

Smith, an alum of “That ’70s Show,” is shooting the Showtime pilot “Insatiable.”

NBC Universal TV Studio produces “House,” which comes from exec producers David Shore, Paul Attanasio, Jacobs, Bryan Singer and Dan Sackheim.
