Dr. House goes to Buckingham Palace

Hughlaurie_2Does this mean he gets to be even nastier on the show?
Hugh Laurie, who plays the cranky-brilliant Dr. Gregory House on Fox’s “House,” got the nod today from Queen Elizabeth II at her place and can now call himself a member of the Order of the British Empire. Not a bad way to cap a TV season in which “House” stood tall as one of primetime’s precious few shows to actually grow from season-to-season.

Laurie does a swell job of convincing us he’s an American on “House,” but he’s a son of Britannia through and through. Get him and Craig Ferguson going on an interview seg on CBS’ “The Late Late Show” and us Yanks are lucky if we can make out every third word or so. We know him best nowadays for his furrowed brow and dramatic intensity on “House,” but Laurie first made his mark across the Pond as co-star with Stephen Fry of the wickedly daft 1980s sketch comedy series “A Bit of Fry and Laurie.” Bits of that show are strewn all over YouTube for anyone who’s curious.
