    Well as most of you guys know by now Hugh Laurie will be a central figure in the new film Street Kings. The plot seem cliched and i'm not sure what will separate this from Training Day or any other bad cop film but Huge and a few other tv and movie well knows are in it. Hugh appears to be a jerk but with good on his side possible House light is anyone planning to see the film just for Hugh?

    But of course It doesn't hurt that Keanu Reeves is in it too, but I'll mainly watch it for Hugh, no matter the plot.

    Yeah, Hugh makes this a mandatory trip to the theatre! I've only seen one clip, but he seems to be sporting another American accent! I'm looking forward to how he makes it unique from House!

    I find cop movies quite boring and bland but I'll sure be going to this one!

    Most definately. Hugh, Keanu, and Forrest in one movie! That's just too good to pass up.

    The movie looks generally interesting. I didn't notice he was in it until I read this, so I'll definitely be seeing it!

    Forrest Whitaker is in it? Damn, I'd forgotten that. I've always been fond of him, so even the more reason to see the movie.

    I'm actually looking forward to seeing this movie, either theatre or dvd; most likely the latter. I think it'll be good seeing Hugh Laurie in a different kind of role. I've seen quite a few of his other works. Broadening one's horizons is always a good thing.

    It's weird because I saw the trailer today and Hugh Laurie wasn't even in it. They mentioned Forrest Whitaker and Keanu Reeves but nothing about Hugh. If you guys say he is a central character then I'll believe you!

    As much as I understood it, his part is not as big as people tend to think, but his character has a big influence on the plot. He seems very happy with it and it sounds like a very interesting character. You can see what he has to say about it on the recent interview I linked on the "HL on House" thread.

    My boyfriend and I saw the trailer and he was like "hey, he's from House!"

    And I said, "yes, and that's why I'm dragging you to see it."

    Thanks for the reminder.Totally forgot...On the other hand, if there will be any satisfaction (I'd prefer ths one music-wise ,but oh,well...) the cat won't be dead to begin with.
