House creator David Shore tells TVLine exclusively that Wentworth will appear as a patient of the week in an episode that takes place after Dr. Crankypants gets sprung from jail.
“He plays a real altruist,” says Shore. “And there’s some question as to whether that’s his symptom or not.”
Save for a 2009 guest stint on Law & Order: SVU, Miller has kept a relatively low TV profile since wrapping up his Prison stint more than two years ago. His House episode is slated to air in late October.
House kicks off its eighth and possibly final season on Monday, Oct. 3.
