Hugh Laurie Has The Blues

Hugh-Laurie-blues-gig-in--007The Guardian says that Hugh Laurie is the highest paid actor on US television for his role as Dr Gregory House in the medical drama series “House.” (I don’t know if his supposedly being number one is because “House” is more popular around the world than “Two and a Half Men” — drama travels better than comedy — or because Charlie Sheen is, technically, not currently on a still-filming show.) The Guardian continues: ‘But to prepare for the release of his debut blues album as a recording artist, he [appeared] in a small New Orleans venue earlier this week for his first ever gig, with a crack band behind him – featuring the likes of local legend Allen Toussaint.’
