Three well known Hollywood celebrities, Hugh Laurie, Jack Black and Harrison Ford, have put their weight behind Epilepsy New Zealand’s Talk About It! Campaign, appearing on television adverts throughout November and early December, asking everybody to do the same… just talk about.
With the support of Pub Charity, this will be the first time ever that epilepsy and Epilepsy New Zealand will appear on New Zealand screens.
‘Talk About It!’ is a national campaign dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy.

The RoboCop remake is mining TV's best for its leading roles. Joel Kinnaman of The Killing has already signed on to play Alex Murphy, the Detroit cop whose body is illegally harvested to complete the cyborg crime-stopper known as RoboCop. In the original film, the creation of RoboCop is a sort of PR effort by mega-corp OCP (Omni Consumer Products), who are making a bid to buy the city of Detroit. RoboCop is part of their efforts to prove they can quell the emergence of high tech criminals that control much of the...
Hugh Laurie happily sings the blues, USA Today
Let’s face it: Hugh Laurie is probably not the first person who comes to mind when you think of New Orleans.
Yet there the House star is, on PBS, starring in the SeptemberGreat Performances special Hugh Laurie: Let Them Talk – a Celebration of New Orleans Blues. And he won’t just be hosting — he’s singing and playing the piano with Irma Thomas, Tom Jones and Allen Toussaint, among other New Orleans stars. It was, he says, a dream come true.

I've already posted this on the House MD-spot but I need your help too.
There's an article on ff.net which is not a story but a bashing against Huddy- and House-fans, it is attacking also Hugh and Lisa E. It's there since 5 or 6 days, has already 4 chapters. We've already reported it multiple times but the admin didn't do anything.
House walked and stood beside Hugh a few weeks later. Both of them were silently staring at the actor’s body.
House: I saw your result, looks like you’ll be out for good…
Hugh turned to look at him.
Hugh: Thank you…
House nodded and they glanced back at the body.
Hugh: How about you?
House: <shook his head> I don’t know…
Hugh looked at him as he made his way to the chair in front of the bed. He raised his arms and let it stay behind his neck while looking at his friend’s body.
One evening, House and Hugh found themselves seated in front of the other. Both of them shared a bottle of whisky with only the light of the hallway lighting up. Hugh happened to notice the desk calendar that says June 11, 2009.
Hugh: <sighed> Another year finished… another year to face, hopefully…
House turned to look at the calendar as well before giving a quick eyebrow raise.
Hugh gave his quick eyebrow raise too.
Hugh: How’d you ---
Hugh came in to House’s office that same night. He took the seat across the table as the doctor looked at him closely.
House: Hugh Laurie… Married for almost 20 years with three publicly known kids, 50 years old and ---
Hugh looked at him.
Hugh: How did you ---
House: Hey I got my own interweb here…
Hugh: And I’m screwed.
Silence followed for a few minutes.
Hugh: If I accept this dream or hallucination or whatever you call it, would it bring me back to life?
Somebody got front row seats to see the Jonathan Ross show and this what was cut out. I did ask them if I could post this and they said it was ok. They me to keep their name out of this. Injoy
What follows is, as best I can give, a transcript of the 30 minute interview. Around half of which should be shown tonight. I will include any extra comments along the way…
