Hugh Laurie Confirms House's In-Jail State in Season 8

'I am a prisoner,' says the title character depicter on 'House M.D.' when attending the Television Critics Association's summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

"House M.D." will be set in prison when the eighth season kicks off this fall on Monday, October 3, it has been confirmed by Hugh Laurie. The House depicter on the FOX medical drama series told reporters at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour in Beverly Hills, "I am a prisoner."

As for how long his alter ego will stay behind the bars, the English actor claimed he has no idea. "I don't know [how long I'll be there]. They keep me in the dark," he said. "It's probably better that way."

Also on the same occasion, Laurie talked briefly about Lisa Edelstein who quit "House" after the end of season 7. "We all miss Lisa very much," he shared.

Laurie showed up at the TCA to attend a panel for his upcoming PBS special, "Great Performances: Hugh Laurie: Let Them Talk - A Celebration of New Orleans Blues". The show centers on the making of his first album "Let Them Talk" which features him collaborating with Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas and Tom Jones.

"This whole experience [was] closer to who I am than many things I have done," the 52-year-old said of the project. "I suppose because the subject was so dear to my heart. It was very unplanned. It was a genuine journey of discovery."

    We're not watching House anymore, set in a prison and no Cuddy... bleuch! Season 7's ending wrapped things up nicely so that's where we're ending it...

    Jennifer Morrison must not be too bitter.JM said she would go back on House if they asked. Who knows, maybe they will. Hugh Laurie's music is amazing.

    Yeah, real nice of him to say they'll miss LE. I just wish somebody at House would finally "man up" and tell us what the hell Jennifer Morrison did to get such crappy treatment. I'm glad he's enjoying his musical experience, but I have no interest in buying it.
