House, M.D. fans, help needed


Recommended Posts

This question is in regards to last night's season 8 opener. If you haven't seen it and don't want a spoiler, please skip this thread for now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have turned to the Hive for help identifying one of the guest stars from last night's episode. Can anyone tell me who the actor was that was playing chess with House and was the friendlier white haired guy? It is driving me insane and I cannot find a credit for him anywhere.

 

Oh and does anyone else get weirded out when they hear Hugh Lauries give an interview? I know he is British, but hearing him speak with such a strong accent makes me do a double take and a :lol:. It sounds so fake coming out of his mouth even though it is his real accent.

I have no idea....

 

But, I have to say, my college daughter was less than 10 feet away from Dr. House this past Saturday!!!!! She loves House. She went to a music festival and he was there, playing guitar, piano and singing. She is even more head over heals now.... :001_smile:

 

She got as close to him as she could... she's barely 5 ft tall and never hits 100 pounds... she probably looked like some dreamy kid... the security had to ask her to take a step backwards!

 

Just sharing...

How cool!

 

Didn't see it; haven't watched House in a few years. But maybe you can figure it out from the IMDB page.

 

I tried there first. Very rarely does the site fail me, but this time it has. I don't know that the character even had a name. I found it weird given that he had quite a few speaking parts.

Yes, he was a very familiar looking actor but I couldn't figure out who he was either. I had a friend once who commented on Hugh Laurie's "really bad fake British accent" and he was really surprised when I told him that was his true voice.:lol:

 

Glad to know I wasn't the only one that recognized the actor. Now to figure out who the heck he is.

I didn't see the episode, but I am a Google addict and love a challenge!

 

I think the chess playing inmate's name was Frankie, and he was played by Michael Massee.

(Is this the right guy?)

Yes, I felt the same way about Sayid from LOST and the Lennie James from Jericho.

I don't know who he was, but I'll find out. However, did you see Erkel? He was younger inmate that was passing out supplies. Okay, his name is really Jaleel White. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0924918/

 

I saw that as I was on my hunt during the episode. It was before his character was on the tv.

 

I think this was the chess player, Michael Massee. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0557219/'>http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0557219/'>http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0557219/'>http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0557219/

 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That's him.

Thank you as well. Obviously you all have much better Google skills than I did. I tried everything I could think of before I turned to the Hive.
