Known for possessing a keen eye for the complex characters he creates as an actor and a writer, HUGH LAURIE (E.B.'s Dad) currently brings that talent to his work on the critically acclaimed FOX series House M.D.

Now in its seventh season, the innovative and uncompromising series features Laurie as Dr. Gregory House, an antisocial and brutally honest doctor who combines an unconventional approach to his cases with flawless instincts. His performance has garnered him two Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards and five Emmy Award nominations. FOX's hit medical drama also stars Omar Epps, Robert Sean Leonard and Olivia Wilde.

This spring, Warner Bros. Records will distribute Laurie's upcoming New Orleans blues album worldwide. The album, produced by two-time Grammy Award winner Joe Henry, will feature both musical and vocal collaborations. Laurie, who has played piano for much of his life, is predominantly selftaught and has been singing, performing and writing music throughout his career.

Laurie will be seen, opposite Catherine Keener and Leighton Meester, in the independent film The Oranges and in the Sony Pictures Animation feature Arthur Christmas, with James McAvoy and Bill Nighy, to be released Thanksgiving 2011.

In 2009, Laurie lent his voice to Jeffrey Katzenberg's 3D-animated hit Monsters vs Aliens, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Seth Rogen. His other film credits include director David Ayer's Street Kings, opposite Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker; Flight of the Phoenix, opposite Dennis Quaid; Peter's Friends, directed by and co-starring Kenneth Branagh; Sense and Sensibility, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet; Cousin Bette; The Man in the Iron Mask; 101 Dalmatians; Stuart Little; and Stuart Little 2.

Laurie previously starred in a number of groundbreaking British television comedy series including four seasons of A Bit of Fry and Laurie, which he cowrote for the BBC with Stephen Fry; three seasons of Blackadder, written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton; and three seasons of Saturday Live. In addition, four seasons of Jeeves and Wooster, based on the novels of P.G. Wodehouse, aired on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre from 1990 to 1995.

On American television, Laurie portrayed Vincente Minnelli, opposite Judy Davis, in the network telefilm Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows. He also appeared in Tracey Takes On… and Friends.

In addition to acting, Laurie has directed television programs and commercials, composed and recorded numerous original songs and written articles for London's The Telegraph. Mandarin Publishing has printed four volumes of A Bit of Fry and Laurie scripts and his first novel, "The Gun Seller,” was published in both the U.K. and the U.S. to critical acclaim and has been adapted into a screenplay for MGM.

When he films House, Laurie lives in Los Angeles.
