Personal Quote:

I didn't want to be the lead guy. That's too much work. But I thought that it might be fun to be the lead guy's friend. I'd have days off and still get a paycheck every week. Hugh Laurie, who plays House, is remarkable. I lean in the door and say, 'Hey, what do you think about egg salad [for lunch]?' Then I have two days in a row off. It's a great gig. [on his experience acting on House (2004)] See more »

Trivia:

In Dead Poets' Society, his character's father (Kurtwood Smith) wanted him to be a doctor. He then later played a doctor in House, apparently fulfilling his "father's" wishes. See more »
