It's Miller Time!

As in Dennis Miller. More precisely Hugh Laurie made an appearance on The Dennis Miller Show last night. I know there's already a bunch of posts over at house_md and maybe I should post my random thoughts there, but I'm not. I'm still community shy apparently.

For some reason Hugh didn't strike me as the type to be comfortable in these situations and, well, he didn't look all that comfortable. He did look good though in his tailored suit. :) I really appreciated Dennis' inital remark to Hugh - something along the lines of look who's becoming a star. Just last week I mentioned to my mother that after 20, 25 years in the business he's an overnight success. :p Dennis then proceeded to congratulate him on the show's renewal and what an amazing feet that is in television today where it's all an effort in attrition - throw 50 shows on the air and one is left standing.

Apparently, the most difficult part of playing House for Hugh is the accent. His jaw hurts by the end of the day. I guess it's how we say our R's. He hates it anytime he sees the words "coronary artery" in the script. Saying the words seperately isn't so bad, but together he needs five minutes to prepare.

Interesting tidbit I did not know, his father was a doctor - though the antithesis of House. He went on to explain that he and his dad sound very much alike so when patients would call the house they'd would just start telling him their problems and he would make up some treatment before telling them his father would get back to them. :)

There was also some talk of the last time these two saw each other. Seems there were a lot martinis and a viewing of 'Waiting for Guffman' involved. Who says celebrities are any different than us?

I'm starting to worry a bit about ME. I was updating my icons (check out sdwolfpup for some new pretties :) and I'm now seeing *a lot* of Apollo. Damn those arms of his. :(
