Hugh Laurie Lets It Slip. This Is House's Last Season?

Hugh Laurie is done playing doctor?

Yesterday may have been one of the hardest for fans of FOX TV shows, but one that made it was HOUSE! House was picked up for an eighth season, but is it the last? Hugh Laurie, 51, who plays the difficult, yet very attractive Dr. Gregory House said his contract is up after this season.

“The end of that [eighth] season looks like the end of the show,” Laurie reportedly told the U.K.’s Radio Times (via the New York Post). “That’s as far as they’ve got me for.”

So just how does he want it all to end?

“We don’t talk about when we’ll pack it in,” Laurie, who will soon release a blues album, Let Them Talk, says. “When the time comes, I think it would be good to have sort of a clean finish rather than just sort [of] trailing off. I’d like to go out with a bang, not a whimper.” [via US]

But don’t feel too bad for Hugh. He knows that his life isn’t too hard.

“Doing weekly TV is like joining the Navy and going on the other side of the world for 10 months of the year,” the two-time Golden Globe winner told Parade magazine. “But the truth is that whatever challenging situation you’re in, somebody somewhere has got a much more extreme version. So I think one ought to shut up and not moan about it.”

I love this man more and more. I will miss House, or rather, I will miss Hugh Laurie playing Dr. House.
