Five New Doctors are in the "House"

Five New Doctors are in the "House"

Remember how I told you a while back that "House" could be getting a quartet of new underlings? Make that a quintet. Five new doctors will join the Princeton-Plainsboro staff in the fall — though it's not been revealed how long they'll each be sticking around.

Headlining the new additions are Olivia Wilde of "The OC" and "The Black Donnellys" and Kal Penn of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and The Namesake. Wilde is set to play a doctor named Thirteen — a name I assume must have been chosen just because it would rankle House so much. Penn and the three other new additions — Peter Jacobson (Kenny from "The Starter Wife"), Edi Gathegi ("Lincoln Heights") and Anne Dudek ("Big Day") — are expected to play candidates for a fellowship with House.

It should be interesting to watch House react to a new pretty young thing, but I do wonder how long it will be before Chase, Foreman and Cameron return. E! says the newbies will be around for at least eight episodes, while Fox says the the number is undetermined. Will this make for a "House" that's too crowded?

NO! I will be so sad if Chase, Cameron, and Foreman are gone! Esp. Chase..he's so cute with his accent! And they all make such a good team.

Hugh Laurie is a hero of mine - he does a lot of the music for the show himself. And loved Olivia in Black Donnelys! I actually got really fond of Kal Penn after The Namesake too, very moving flic!

Oh my god, Olivia Wilde's head is so freaking me out. I might not watch the next season of House just because of her. Her face is so scary. Brrrh.

Eh...I don't know. Too many chef's spoil the soup. AND the ducklings will still be around? Hate to say it but it feels like that show is going to get crowded quick.

Ahh, I really got into House this past year and don't know if I can handle all that change!!! Hope they make it work. Hugh Laurie is fantastic. Check out some of his older stuff on youtube- so worth it...

Seems like some great additions! Kal Penn should be great on there; House will have a field day w/ a guy named "thirteen." I can't wait for the new season.

Oh how irritated House will be with a guy named Thirteen. Should be fun! Shaking up the "House formula" might make this season a really interesting one. Looking forward to watching, though I hope Chase, Foreman and Cameron aren't gone for too long.

LOL I've actually never been to white castle! But I liked Kal Penn in that movie. I think changing the dynamic will make the show a little more interesting. This next season has the potential of being very good.

This is one of my "season pass" TiVo shows but I hardly ever watch it unless I'm sick or really bored. I'm not so keep on the new actors idea, but Kal Pen could be fun.
