There’s more than one New Girl on Fox this fall, and a pair of stars from House are here to help you get to know two of them.
In this featurette from the Fox medical drama, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Wilde offer their take on the addition of Odette Annable and Charlyne Yi as Drs. Jessica Adams and Chi Park, each of whom has been introduced over the course of the first two Season 8 episodes. Adams, a recently canned (thanks, Gregory!) prison doc from an affluent upbringing and Park, a super-brilliant if socially challenged sprite, offer “a really interesting mix… visually, emotionally and demographically,” says Laurie.
Wilde, whose Thirteen will bond with both newcomers in next Monday’s episode, explains how she helped the incoming actresses wrap their mouths around the medi-babble. “I think they’ll do just fine,” enthuses Wilde, who is due to appear in precious few episodes this season, as her film career skyrockets.
Press PLAY below for more from Laurie and Wilde, as well as Annable and Yi themselves. The video also features the high-larious “Charlie’s Angels” quip from last night’s promo.
