Dave Matthews pages Dr. House

Dave Matthews has signed up to appear as a guest star on an episode of Fox's House. The episode will also mark the directorial debut of House executive producer Katie Jacobs.

Matthews will play a man who was hit by a bus when he was 10 years old. The accident caused him to have developmental disabilities but turned him into a savant who can play piano like a master despite never having lessons.

Matthews has acted in the movie Because of Winn-Dixie and will be seen in the big-screen outing Lake City, a family film starring Sissy Spacek.

The rocker is the latest in a long line of musicmakers who enter the world of the thespian. Jon Bon Jovi had a recurring role on Fox's Ally McBeal, and Harry Connick Jr. had a role on the NBC sitcom Will & Grace.

The episode of House starring Matthews will air in March.

Cure him of his crap music? If you don't like Dave Matthews Band you're pathetic. I love how people use the internet to defame people with their own very close-minded opinions. You probably have heard one song. So just pop in your Slayer CD, shut yourself off to the rest of the world and fawk right off.

Sounds like an interesting patient. I can't wait to see how House relates to him, with the whole piano thing.
