Thanks to a recommendation from friends, Paul and I became big fans of House, M.D. this summer. We caught most episodes in summer reruns, with the few omitted episodes watched from DVD.

A few night ago, we watched some of the bonus material from the DVDs, including a few interviews with Hugh Laurie. Although I knew he was British, hearing his full accent from Greg House’s mouth was very disconcerting. I told Paul that it seemed like a perfect voice-over by some British actor.

Apparently, my problem isn’t unique. On a page about his earlier work with his natural accent, House was described thusly: “No British accent is off putting — almost sounds like his voice is dubbed.” That’s exactly right — just in reverse!
