Doris Egan, the writer/producer on House responsible for Failure to Communicate, House vs. God, and Son of Coma Guy, talks about one of my pet subjects, those ethical shades of grey. She uses examples from many different novels and shows, including House and Battlestar Galactica, to support the point that creating characters who embody these grey areas are the riskiest, but the most realistic and most satisfying.
So much more than a House post

In the movie, “Children of Men,” the actor, Clive Owen, reminds me of Hugh Laurie in “House.” Owen’s character wears a scruffy beard and he takes swigs from a whiskey bottle, which he carries in his pocket. Unlike House, Theodore (Owen’s character) has a perfunctory job, but like House, Theodore seems to be more intelligent than most of the other people in the movie. The two men are both slender and their faces look alike to me. If you need a Hugh Laurie fix, then perhaps see “Children of Men.”
Thanks for the tip, Tom. That movie’s definitely on my list to see. I’m a fan of the director, Alfonso Cuarón, and Clive Owen stands on his own merits, too, but if he also resembles House … I’m definitely there!
