Maybe it's just because I've been watching it for so long, but honestly, it just seems like Hugh Laurie was born for this role. Not many actors could pull it off, but Hugh Laurie does it perfectly.!House's attitude is strange, to say the least. I would describe him as antisocial, sarcastic, rude, blunt, and sometimes just downright mean. It takes an amazing actor to portray a character with those qualities yet somehow still get the audience to love him. Even when you're shaking your head, wondering what kind of messed up and socially unacceptable thing he'll do next, you still have a soft spot in your heart for him and just want to see him happy.
