Amber Tamblyn has signed on to appear in the upcoming season of “House” for a multi-episode story arc. She will play a brilliant and aggressive medical student whom Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) hires as a new team member although she is technically not yet qualified to practice medicine. Tamblyn’s character will be confronted with the morally and ethically questionable way that House practices medicine.
The seventh season premiere of “House” airs Monday, Sept. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox.
“House” is an innovative take on the medical drama in which the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients. The series also stars Lisa Edelstein, Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson.
Emmy Award-winning “House” is from Heel and Toe Films, Shore Z Productions and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with Universal Media Studios. Katie Jacobs, David Shore, Paul Attanasio, Bryan Singer, Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner, Thomas L. Moran, Greg Yaitanes and Hugh Laurie are executive producers.
