    poor Odette Annable. She had 2 network shows last year and now she is gonna be on a show that is on a network that most people dont even have. I bet she thought that House gig was gonna be a great one when she signed on

  2. Cuddy's lawyer says:

    The Melissa George spy series coming up on Cinemax, “Hunted”, looks like a good show and this idea shows promise. “Strike Back” was a pleasant surprise with great action and drama and excellent casting. Cinemax may be onto something. “Starz” and “Cinemax” are making good quality dramas and it seems like more good actors/actresses are finding great roles in television. Roles for actresses on CABLE television are much better than in movies or on network tv. People don’t need to be stuck watching boring network procedural dramas anymore and that is a good thing.

    Of course the bitter Lisa Edelstein / huddy / Cuddy fangirls had to came here and spread their venom on Odette, they also pestered her on twitter for this. Still so bitter, poor girls. Also it’s amazing how these tards are always the firts to jump on every single article related to House.
    Congrats to Odette

    House is only Hugh, Robert, Jesse, Lisa, Jennifer and Omar! the original cast was amazing! Shore should make a movie with these actors.

    • Tsk. says:

      Why? So nobody could watch it, like nobody watched the last year or so of the TV show? Move ON, already! Geez.

      • Bill says:

        More people watched House in its last year than some critics favorites on cable, so lets not quibble, there would be plenty of people who would watch a movie especially with Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard.

        • Tsk. says:

          Fortunately, neither HL or RSL have the IQ of a TURNIP, so such a televised endeavor is highly unlikely. Thank Christ.

          • Bill says:

            Whether a movie is made is not the issue, but to say no one watched House in its last year is false and to base an argument on it is disingenous. Even based on its last year’s ratings there would many people who might like to see Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard in something related to House. And no neither one of them have the IQ of a turnip, movie or no movie.

      • doitnow says:

        if they’ll make a movie with the original cast it will be a success but certainly not with actresses like they hired in the last seasons. They seem nice but the acting was lame.

  8. Tania says:

    Just out of sheer curiosity and nothing else, but is it just me or are more non-americans being hired as lead actors in series television? Other than the cheapness of the hiring, are Americans just not good enough anymore for producers/creators of television and movies? It’s a pretty sad commentary if it is. What do *you* think Mr. Ausiello?

  9. Yeah, right. says:

    So, let me get this straight: The most annoying producer in television is doing another project with the worst actress on television. I smell a winner! Ka-BOOM!

    • Peter k says:

      I agree just with half of your comment. Odette can be a bad actress who lands roles just for her looks but Yaitanes is one of the best TV directors of the last decade

  10. Gigi says:

    Yaitanes was not Odette’s boss. He was a director at [H]OUSE.

  11. Evan says:


    Yay to Odette getting a new gig.

    Second, its Skinemax and Alan Ball, so please, please, please, may we possibly have nudity? (Someone had to say it)

    Third, will FOX get the complete Breaking In series out on DVD already so I can see how the show ended?
