The new doctor is in. Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Odette Annable, late of the Fox series “Breaking In” and wife of former “Brothers And Sisters” star Dave Annable, will be joining the Fox drama “House” this fall. As is usually the case with that series, producers are keeping details top secret. However, Deadline is saying that Annable’s character will run into Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) in prison. She’s a prison physician and will recruit House to join her medical staff in the Big House. Which is where the good-bad doc ends up after driving his car into ex-love Dr. Cuddy’s (Lisa Edelstein) house at the end of last season.
