House – Latest from TV Guide Magazine House: powrót do lat 80?

How does Hugh Laurie remember the ’80s? “I have a dim and distant memory of some absolutely atrocious music,” grumbles the House star. OK, Mr. Crabby Pants, but the ’80s are going to be a major theme on House this season. And the rest of his costars are pretty excited about it.

“Star Wars” fan Jesse Spencer (Chase) met one of his idols when James Earl Jones (Darth Vader) came to shoot his October 5 guest appearance as a murderous African dictator. (OK, the first “Star Wars” came out in the ’70s, but still….) Jones told Jesse, “I looked like his ‘son,’ meaning Luke Skywalker.” There is quite a resemblance to Mark Hamill.

And in a later episode, House will hitch a ride with Drs. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) and Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) to a medical conference in the Adirondacks, where they’ll be invited to take part in an ’80s-themed costume party. “I got to wear hot pants, leg warmers and a Jennifer Beals–style cutoff sweatshirt!” Lisa says of her “Flashdance”-inspired costume. The actress couldn’t stop singing the film’s song, “Maniac,” on set between takes. “I loved that scene with the water splashing all over her.”

As for House’s costume, exec producer David Shore says, “He partakes in his own House way.” Exec producer Katie Jacobs adds, “He claims to have misunderstood that the party’s theme is the 1980s.” (Won’t it be fun seeing Hugh “wig out” at the party with a full head of hair?!) The Adirondacks conference scenes were shot at the Lake Arrowhead resort outside L.A., which Lisa says will set the stage for an “attempted moment” between House and Cuddy. November episodes will find House pursuing Cuddy again.

Though Olivia Wilde (Thirteen) didn’t get to go on the location shoot, she’s headed on her own ’80s adventure. In December 2010, Olivia will be seen on the big screen in “Tron Legacy,” an update of the 1982 sci-fi classic “Tron.” To capture her likeness for an action figure, Olivia underwent full-body 3-D scanning. “I felt like I was in a strange orb abducted by aliens!” says Olivia, who’s unnerved by the thought of sci-fi geeks playing with her miniature likeness. “Carrie Fisher wrote in her book Wishful Drinking that she found a Princess Leia doll in her ex-boyfriend’s drawer with pins stuck in its eyeballs. So the idea of being used as a voodoo doll is very disturbing.”

Czy Hugh Laurie pamięta dobrze lata 80? Aktor stwierdza, że najbardziej zapadła mu w pamięć okropna muzyka z tamtych lat.  Cóż, będzie musiał się trochę pomęczyć, ponieważ w Housie szykuje się przebierany bal w klimacie lat 80!

Oczywiście House jak zawsze postanowi być niekonwencjonalny i ubierze się w strój z lat 80 … XVIII wieku! Z kolei Lisa Edelstein, wcielająca się w rolę Cuddy, przebierze się za Alex Owens, główną bohaterkę przebojowego musicalu „Flashdance”.  „Musiałam ubrać seksowne majtki, getry i bluzkę podobną do tej, jaką nosiła Jennifer Beals w „Flashdance”.  Uwielbiam ten film i scenę, kiedy Alex jest oblewana wodą”. Aktorka podczas nagrywania odcinka nie mogła się powstrzymać od nucenia na planie piosenki Maniac, pochodzącej właśnie z tego filmu.

Wszystko to będzie miało miejsce w czasie konferencji medycznej w Adirondacks. Oczywiście fani Huddy mogą liczyć na bliskie kontakty tej dwójki. Wątek ten zostanie bardziej rozwinięty w listopadzie.
