ARTHUR CHRISTMAS

Known for possessing a keen eye for the complex characters he creates as an actor and a writer, HUGH LAURIE (Steve) currently brings that talent to his work on the critically acclaimed FOX series, "House."

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, and began shooting its eighth season in September.

Laurie's New Orleans blues album was released in September 2011 worldwide by Warner Bros Records. 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 self-taught and has been singing, performing, and writing music throughout his career.

Laurie will next be seen in the independent film The Oranges. Laurie was last seen on the big screen in Hop, starring Russell Brand, James Marsden, and Chelsea Handler. Blending state-of-the-art animation with live action, Hop is a comic tale about the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. He will also be seen opposite Catherine Keener and Leighton Meester in the independent film The Oranges.

In 2009, Laurie also lent his voice to DreamWorks' 3D animated hit Monsters vs. Aliens alongside Reese Witherspoon and Seth Rogen.

Laurie previously starred in a number of groundbreaking British television comedy series', including four seasons of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie," which he co-wrote 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's "Masterpiece Theatre" from 1990-1995.

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 "Tracy 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 Daily Telegraph. Four volumes of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" scripts have been published by Mandarin and his first novel, The Gun Seller, was published in both the UK and the US to critical acclaim and has been adapted into a screenplay for MGM.

While filming "House,” Laurie lives in Los Angeles.
