Two And A Half-men Neighbor Enters House

27 October 2011 7:05 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Two And A Half-men Neighbor Enters House

Actress Melanie Lynskey is about to pop in on the cast of House. Let’s hope she uses the front door of the hospital instead of climbing over the balcony as her cooky Two and Half Men character, Rose, so often did. I miss the banter between Charlie and Rose, don’t you?

The Kiwi actress, which is a cute way of saying she’s from New Zealand, broke into cinema with 1994′s controversial picture Heavenly Creatures. She was adorable in Ever After, and just as quirky as ever in films like Sweet Home Alabama and Up In the Air. I’ve also been told she’s my celebrity look alike, but I’m sure you couldn’t care less about that! On to the real news!

For the Fox medical drama, Lynskey will act in an episode scheduled for early next year. »

House Exclusive: Two and a Half Men's Melanie Lynskey to Guest Star (And Not as a Patient)

26 October 2011 11:13 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Melanie Lynskey will be checking into House for one episode in early ’12, but in a twist, she will not be playing the Patient of the Week.

House Spoiler Alert: November Sweeps Scoop!

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the Two and a Half Men actress will guest star as the wife of a convalescent. But an insider tells me that this is one of those rare instances where the plot revolves around the spouse as opposed to the patient.

Lynskey’s episode — this season’s ninth — is slated to air in January. The actress joins an impressive roster of guest »

November Sweeps Scoop for Fox's Glee, Bones, House, Fringe, New Girl and More!

17 October 2011 8:54 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

A Glee crush, prehistoric murder, big House drama, new love for the New Girl, the Chance clan raising a ruckus and the long-awaited return of Bones are but a few things on tap for Fox this November. The network just coughed up one of our fave documents of the year, its sweeps preview, and we’re here to hit you with the (non-animated) highlights.

Thursday, October 27

Bones | The show is back – sorta – with encore airings of last season’s seminal “The Doctor in the Photo” and “The Change in the Game” – that is, unless the World Series goes seven games. »

House's Omar Epps: As the New Boss, Foreman 'Will Have To Enforce the New Lay of the Land'

10 October 2011 10:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There’s a new sheriff in town on House, and his name is Dr. Eric Foreman.

As revealed in this week’s episode of the Fox medical drama, Omar Epps’ alter ego is one year into his gig as the successor to Dr. Lisa Cuddy, as Princeton Plainsboro’s Dean of Medicine – and boy, has he borrowed a bit of trouble by paving the way for House to return to the fold. TVLine spoke with Epps about leading this “new regime” and, most critically, Foreman’s plan for keeping House (sorta, kinda) in line.

House Exclusive First Look Video: Here Comes the… Bride?

Brace yourselves, because Dr. Gregory House appears to be heading for a wedding — and you will not believe who the bride is.

As part of the Fox drama’s Season 8 cast photo shoot, series lead Hugh Laurie — whose contributions to past set-ups include the caduceus-inspired “snake” image — put himself in a bridal gown, donned a dictator’s uniform and fancied himself part of a chain gang, among other noisy concepts.

Rescue Me Victim to House Season 8

Rescue Me Victim to House Season 8

FX’s Rescue Me just recently aired its series finale and already one of its actors has found his way to another show. Actor and writer John Scurti, known from Rescue Me as Ken “Lou” Shea, is guest starring on House for an episode that will play in November. Scurti’s character on Rescue Me died in an explosion (the poor guy). If only he had been on House then; he might have been saved! Alas, that’s not the case.

According to TVLine, Scurti may not even be playing the main patient of the week. All we know about the character is that he will meet Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) in the hospital’s free clinic. That doesn’t mean House won’t take notice of something that turns out to be a rare blood disease of some kind, but the chances are »

John Scurti to Guest Star on House

29 September 2011 10:10 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

John Scurti has been revived.

The long-time Rescue Me star, whose character was killed off at the conclusion of that FX drama's run, has landed a guest-starring role on House, according to TV Line. Look for the veteran actor/writer to appear on an episode this November as a clinic patient treated by our favorite grumpy doctor.

Scurti joins a list of season eight guest stars that also includes Wentworth Miller.

Spoiler Alert: Rescue Me fans still mourning the tragic, series-ending death of Ken Shea, should find some comfort in this next sentence: He’s aliiiiiiive!

Well, at least you can pretend he is when his portrayer, John Scurti, pops up on House later this fall.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the actor-writer will guest star as a clinic patient treated by Hugh Laurie’s titular MD in an episode slated to air in November.

No word if he’ll be playing a burn victim. (Too soon?) »

'Rescue Me' honors 9/11 with timely series finale

8 September 2011 12:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Nearly 10 years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and little more than 7 years after its debut, FX's landmark drama "Rescue Me" concluded its run with the Sept. 7 series finale, "Ashes."

The New York firefighter drama, co-conceived by Denis Leary in the aftermath of 9/11, referenced its tragic roots -- but, true to form, it was not excessively sentimental. For those of you who didn't watch, spoilers ahead...

After a brief fake-out, Lou (John Scurti) was revealed to have died during the penultimate episode's fire. Tommy (Leary) does not handle this well. Riddled with guilt and worried about his growing family's future, he resigns from Ladder 62.

This does not last, and he returns to his post.

There aren't any eulogies for Lou or his numbered peers who died on 9/11, but Tommy does, crassly, acknowledge the unique nature of their job when speaking to a group of new recruits.

"This ain't a job," he says. »

'Rescue Me' - 'Ashes': Crawling from the wreckage

7 September 2011 8:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Rescue Me" aired its series finale tonight. I offered a review of the series as a whole yesterday, and I have a few specific thoughts about the finale coming up just as soon as I get some red velvet cake mix... "I know who you are, and I know what you are. You need two things to survive: sex, and fire. One's no good without the other." -Sheila I liked the start of "Ashes" quite a bit, with John Scurti getting an effective curtain call as Lou eulogized his fallen comrades in Tommy's dream. And I liked the end, too, with »

'Rescue Me' John Scurti: 'Series finale will shock viewers'

25 August 2011 3:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rescue Me star John Scurti has claimed that the show's final episode will shock viewers. The actor, who plays firefighter Lou, told TV Guide that the FX drama's series finale is "brilliant". Scurti said: "Instead of becoming weepy and having this Kleenex festival, people are going to p*ss in their pants. It's so horribly, horribly wrong, yet so horribly, horribly right for Rescue Me." Scurti also warned fans not to expect a full reconciliation between feuding friends Lou and Tommy (Denis Leary). "They're never going to agree on everything," he said. "There's so much love between (more) »

There are a couple of co-stars John Scurti wishes he'd had fewer scenes with in Rescue Me's final season.

"I honestly wished we could have given the doughnuts and cupcakes a rest at some point," Scurti tells "You pick your battles. I just remember there was a lot of it ... and I didn't think it was that necessary. I hope that people aren't jarred by it."

The prop pastries have been a nearly constant presence during the seventh season as the series explores the continually troubling health of Scurti's character, Lou...

TV Review: Denis Leary Suits Up For Final Season of ‘Rescue Me’

13 July 2011 9:18 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – It’s hard to believe that we’ve been through six seasons of FX’s beloved “Rescue Me,” a show that never really took off with a very wide audience but has loyal, ardent followers. Being a fan of star Denis Leary for years, I think I can safely say that he’d rather have the small, dedicated following, then one larger but filled with a-holes. Those fans should be satisfied with the start of the final season of one of FX’s most notable shows, even if it does, once again, highlight both the strengths and weakness of a program that was always good but rarely great.

Television Rating: 3.5/5.0

When “Rescue Me” premiered in 2004, it seemed to capture something about the continuing impact of 9/11 that had been missing from dramatic television. Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) was a perfect protagonist for those times when war and the constant threat of another terrorist act loomed. »
