Exclusive First Look: House Alum Lisa Edelstein Lights Elementary's Fuse

Get More: Exclusive, First Look

Lisa Edelstein is da bomb — or, more accurately, will be trying to dodge one — when she guest-stars on CBS’ Elementary this month. And we have a first look at the beloved House alum’s visit.

As previously scooped by TVLine, in the episode “Long Fuse” (airing Thursday, Nov. 29), Edelstein plays Heather Vanowen, the bright and charismatic CEO of a high-end PR consultancy. Heather will cross paths with NYPD consultant Sherlock Holmes (played by Jonny Lee Miller) as he investigates a deadly bombing that appears to have been aimed at her company.

In this first look photo, Captain Thomas Gregson (Aidan Quinn) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) look on as Heather processes the dire threat on her business and employees. Are you looking forward to seeing Edelstein, who last season stopped by CBS’ The Good Wife, back on your screen?

  • Way to go, looking good in that dress. I always thought her body was the one thing that made her special. Nice. (I wish the series was more interesting though, until now it just looks like your usual procedural. There isn’t anything that seems very Sherlock Holmes-like to me so far.)

    • Nice catch. If it wasn’t for her body she would be just like any other mediocre actress out there. As it is, she is barely above the crowd.

  • Interesting. She was on a show that revolved around a character based on Sherlock. Now she’s on a show that revolves around Sherlock. I suppose the next logical step is for her to star in a show AS Sherlock.

  • No I will fast forward any bit she is on, can’t stand her

  • Love her! I can’t stand what they did to the House & Cuddy relationship, it had so much potential..
    Anyway, Lisa was great in House, great in The Good Wife (great in Ally McBeal as well for those who remember), and I’m sure she’ll be wonderful in this.

  • She looks absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait. Go Edelstein!

  • Absolutely stoked about this and really looking forward to seeing Lisa back on TV. Elementary is a good show so far.
    Thanks for this beautiful shot of the gorgeous Lisa.

  • Yes, Yes, Yes! Miss Miss Lisa E from my TV. Would someone give this intelligent and talented actress her own series????

  • Yes! Seriously cannot wait for this!

  • Dear Elementary fans, we are very sorry about this. But the Lisa Edelstein fans are (hopefully) all yours now. Our apologies, the House fandom.

    • That’s funny!

    • Dear House fandom: Did you email Tel your vote or did they just randomly decide they speak for millions? My guess…they decided while surfing the net in their moms basement.

    • You’re funny! Too bad your show got CANCELED after Miss Edelstein left. LOL

      • I was thinking the same thing.

        Comment by Bobby – November 6, 2012 12:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Well, as far i remember all the actors who had to renew their contract were forced to agree to a paycut incl. LE. It was not exactly a sign that the show which was, at that time strongly focused on Cuddy & LEs talent *gasp, was a huge success. Even with LE, It would have been very likely cancelled anyway. Your comment is in my humble opnion pretty narrow-minded and childish therefore it only proves the statement of @TeL . Just Saying :D

    • Would you like at the House fandom stay just the idiots like you?

    • LOL, yesss. Her fans are the worst.

  • She will be awesome, great talent. Missed her in the House finale.

  • Who the frak dug up that gawd-awful dress?

    Comment by Jeez – November 5, 2012 05:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • No–I frankly can’t stand her! Thought she was terrible on House and don’t expect her to be any better on Elementary.

  • Nice to know Lisa is back..is amazing how she still brings so much passion to this forum.^_~

  • I’ll watch the episode because I adore Jonny Lee Miller, but frankly, I could care one whit that she is on the show. She has never done much for me.

  • Great to see Lisa E back on the screen. Really missed her presence in House Season 8 and the House Finale. Always a pleasure to watch a good actress – hope its an interesting role and an interesting episode.

  • I agree that Lisa Edelstein picks good shows and good shows pick her!
    She is so wonderful person and actress, therefore many people from different countries love her and want to see her more often on their TV. LE deserves her own show – it’s for sure!
    Greetings from Europe :)

  • Nope, I didn’t miss her at all, she’s a terrible actress.

    • “Her fans are the worst.” And she’s a terrible actress…. You are a real clown!

      Comment by Kriszta – November 6, 2012 11:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • LMAO. Yeah, I was talking about fans like you.

        Comment by Annie – November 6, 2012 01:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • If you don’t like her, why do you read and comment the article about her? You are not better like her “worst fans”!

          Comment by Cuddy's lawyer – November 6, 2012 11:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Well, actually it is foremost a spoilery post about the show “Elementary”, a show with its own fans and LE is NOT the star of it. She is just GUEST-starring, so the poster above is absolutely allowed to read the spoiler & voice his/her opnion about this certain casting decision. I´m Sorry to tell you.

            Comment by @cuddyslawyer – November 7, 2012 02:33 PM PDT  
    • She really is I agree, very limited expressions!

  • Yes I am looking forward to it, Matt. Very much so. Thanks for the scoop and the pic. Elementary is an excellent show, can’t wait for her episode.

  • Yea!!!! Very happy to see LE will be back on my screen. I missed her when she left House.

  • thank you!!!! She is one of my favorite actresses. I’m freaking out :D

  • Looking forward to seeing LE spice up the sluggish Sherlock this month. She was excellent on House, which really collapsed when she left. Person of Interest is my favorite show now, but I like looking in on Sherlock too.

    • Its not Sherlock thats British this is Elementary, she would and never could be in Sherlock which is v high quaility. These programmes are completely different!!

      Comment by AJ – November 21, 2012 05:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love this actress. Elementary is a good show but is still lacking something. Maybe Edelstein will bring some charisma. I´m sure she´ll be fantastic in her scenes with the lovely Lucy Liu

    Comment by Kucoo – November 16, 2012 01:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love BBC Sherlock so fiercely that I decided I’d just skip this, but Aidan Quinn? **SWOON** .. well I guess I’ll stop in and check it out! (I know that sounds shallow – but I can count my total lifetime “movie star/musician crushes” on one hand!).
