Five actors have been cast in Season Four of the Emmy Award-winning series House, which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Olivia Wilde (The Black Donnellys, The O.C.), Kal Penn (24, The Namesake, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle), Peter Jacobson (Starter Wife, Law & Order), Anne Dudek (Big Day) and Edi Gathegi (Lincoln Heights, Gone Baby Gone) play candidates for a fellowship opportunity with Dr. House. The actors have been cast for an undetermined number of episodes.
House stars Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House, a brilliant diagnostician who thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles to save lives. In the Season Three finale, the set-in-his-ways House was confronted with a series of major changes to his team - neurologist Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) left Princeton Plainsboro because he didn't want to turn into House; House randomly fired old-money intensivist Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), claiming he learned everything he's going to learn during the past three years, or nothing at all; and immunologist Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) resigned, knowing House will be completely unaffected by her decision. But any effects of this "house-cleaning" on House, or the changes it may bring to House professionally or personally, remain to be seen...
