Jordan — who most recently completed an arc on NBC’s Parenthood as a reformed troubled teen — first revealed the news Tuesday via Twitter, stating, “on my way to @FOXBroadcasting…time to put in work #House.” The actor quickly retracted the tweet — presumably after a hand-slap from higher-ups — saying with a laugh, “Now I know never to tweet before the studio approves hahha.”

  • So sad he’s done with PARENTHOOD but I really like to see on whether Michael B. Jordan will be back reprising his role as Vince Howard in the movie version of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

  • He has grown up so much since his days on All My Children. He has turned into a handsome young man. Since House is just a guest role he needs to find his way back to Parenthood.

    • There was a scene on Parenthood where he was talking about how he didn’t have anyone, he was alone. I ended up crying. I was so bummed when his storyline on the show ended. House is lucky to have him.

    • HE NEEDS TO GET BACK ON PARENTHOOD AND BE A SERIES REGULAR!! I absolutely adored him on that show! I felt like his storyline ended so abruptly. They could’ve done more with his character… The people at Tvline need to tell Jason Katims to get him back on Parenthood!

  • Ah I was excited when I thought it was the Michael Jordan guest starring. It’d be hilarious if House treated an actual celebrity playing him or herself

  • What kind of spoiler is that? I’m not jumping of joy…but I’m sure he will deliver a good performance like any others who guest star…
    Seriously,when will learn/or confirm that Donald Sutherland or Alan Alda,or even (my dream choice) Clint Eastwood been cast to play House’s real father, Now that’s a GIANT spoiler that will make me jumping up/down of craziness….

    • it’s just different, House is a buffoon now, it’s a sitcom but there are ppl who enjoy it, but not me :-(

  • Michael B Jordan is one of those actors that puts in good work where ever he goes but he needs to be on a show and stay there. It’s always the good ones that don’t get the work they deserve. I really liked him on “Parenthood”. His best acting yet. It was so sad to see him go. The episode with him saying goodbye to Monica Potter was so touching. I wish him the best in his career because he has truly crafted his gift.

  • I still think of him as Wallace from The Wire. I will watch anything he is in, for that reason!
