As first scooped by our sister site Deadline.com, Brothers & Sisters and Breaking In head-turner Odette Annable is joining House this fall as a series regular.
Annable — the real-life wife of B&S alum Dave Annable — will play someone that House meets while behind bars as the season opens, and ultimately the newest member of Dr. Crankypants’ team, thus filling the void left by both Amber Tamblyn and Olivia Wilde (who’s returning this fall but only for a brief stint).
This is one of two major new roles the Fox hit is adding to its Season 8 ranks. The show is also searching for an actress to succeed Lisa Edelstein as the new Dean of Medicine.
Check Deadline for further details on Annable’s House stay, including what it means for Breaking In‘s possible midseason resurrection.
