Hugh Laurie Picked For Mr Pip

14 April 2011 5:14 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

When you’re rumoured to be the best paid actor in television (now that Charlie Sheen is devoted to spreading the gospel of “win” across America) and have become an unlikely sex symbol in your late forties, employing this relatively new-found superstardom on the big-screen can be more than a little tricky. Although onetime Stephen Fry sidekick Hugh Laurie had a movie career prior to the phenomenon that was his portrayal of a misanthropic medic (including the likes of Stuart Little and Maybe Baby), he failed to bring the revelatory small screen gravitas he has acquired since he became Gregory House to the cinema. Laurie’s one major live-action role since his trans-Atlantic success was David Ayer’s perfectly adequate, but rather unloved, Street Kings.

Now the former presidents of the Footlights is set to try again in an adaptation of Commonwealth Writer’s Prize winning novel Mr Pip by New Zealander Lloyd Jones. »
