House Scoop: Hugh Laurie to Direct One of the Show's Final Episodes - But Which One?

Hugh Laurie House Season 8Hugh Laurie‘s itch to play the role of director on House was apparently not completely scratched back in Season 6 when he first helmed an episode of the Fox hit: The show’s leading man will step behind the cameras one last time before show fades permanently to black on May 21.

TVLine has confirmed that Laurie is set to direct this season’s 19th episode, which is slated to air on April 30.

There’s no word on the plot or title of the episode, but if it’s half as ambitious as his inaugural helming effort — the Season 6 episode he presided over, “Lockdown,” involved the doctors essentially being imprisoned in Princeton-Plainsboro while authorities searched for a missing infant — he’s got his work cut out for him.
