      He did some fantastic work over in Britain as P. G. Wodehouse's "Bertie Wooser" and even played piano for himself.

      Hugh Laurie is a total genius.

      •  I think I have every movie and TV Show he ever (2+ / 0-)

        with the exception of the one he and Stephen Fry did with the Spice Girls.  (And you can probably understand why).

        I've had a major crush on him since House, and I've seen him live in concert with his blues band.  

        He is a major talent.

        •  Stephen Fry should weigh in on the Robin (0+ / 0-)

          Williams suicide. Fry has been very open about his clinical depression.

          •  Hugh's had depression issues as well. (1+ / 0-)

            He talks about being in a charity car race and watching a car smash into a wall in front of him, feeling nothing and being aware intellectually that that was not the right reaction emotionally.

            Someone had a diary here on Kos with a link to an article about comedians and depression that was very interesting and I wish I'd bookmarked it.

            It reminds me of a guy I worked with who was always amiable and smiling and the shock I felt when I heard he'd committed suicide.
