House Says Goodbye: Sneak a Peek at Olivia Wilde’s Final Episode

Paging Dr. Hadley. It’s time for your final rounds in Princeton-Plainsboro.

Sad but true. Next week’s episode of House will be the Thirteen’s (Olivia Wilde) last time running the differential diagnosis with Dr. House (Hugh Laurie). Of course, we could always drag her back for the series finale.

So how does Thirteen react to House barging back into her life? And what does Laurie have to say about losing Wilde to the movie biz? We’ve got an episode clip and interviews to answer those questions…

“There’s a few good reasons for her not to be working anymore as a doctor,” Wilde says about Thirteen’s current situation. “She’s had a disease for a number of years and she doesn’t necessarily have that many years left. At this point she’s struggling with that dilemma. But of course it’s always up to House. No matter how much he drives them crazy, he’s still the most compelling and dynamic person to work for. And ultimately, it’s resolved for her.”

Basically, House wants his old peeps back and obviously, certain people aren’t as willing to be dragged back in. “House is shuffling his own deck of cards,” says Laurie. “Chase and Taub he wants back. He needs them. He does know that, but he’d never admit it to them. And he’s trying to bring Thirteen back into the fold. She’s operating on the level that House needs around him.”

But does Thirteen need House? Check out the clip below from next week’s episode and see what happens Thirteen confronts House about his stalking issues.

After next week, we probably won’t see Wilde in her lab coat anymore (which she really wanted to steal from set as a souvenir), but of course she’s nothing but gracious to her years spent on the show. “My work has gotten so much better from being on the show and learning from Hugh and all the other actors,” she says. “It’s a strange feeling thinking I won’t be coming here every morning, but all I feel is gratitude. My film career is thanks to House.”

Laurie’s also sad to see her go, and he admits that someone who looks like her should not be as nice as she is. Seriously, could she be more perfect? “There’s great sadness about the place. You can probably smell it. There’s a great sadness that Olivia is leaving us and moving on,” Laurie says. “Although it never came as any great surprise to anybody. Everybody here wishes her the absolute best of luck, but it’s very sad because she’s a wonderful person to work with. [She’s] basically much, much nicer than someone like Olivia Wilde needs to be.”

Watch Wilde’s exit interview and Laurie’s ode’ to Olivia, and be sure to tune in to Fox for Thirteen’s final diagnosis on Oct. 17.

New “House” Spoilers From Ask Ausiello

Some new information about Olivia Wilde’s first and last (?) episode of the season have been revealed at Ask Ausiello!

Question: Does Thirteen really leave House? If so, when? —Tamar
Ausiello: Next Monday’s episode is Olivia Wilde’s swan song. Of course, if this turns out to be House‘s last season, I have to imagine she’ll put in another appearance in or around the series finale.

Olivia Wilde Joins Ron Howard’s ‘Rush’

The actress has enjoyed a decent year in the movies with Cowboys & Aliens and The Change-Up this past summer and In Time still coming later this month, and now Olivia Wilde has lined up a new project. While a whole slew of actresses apparently wanted the role, Deadline says it’s Wilde who has been set to play 70’s supermodel Suzy Miller in Ron Howard’s Rush, the chronicle of the rivalry between the late playboy British Formula One driver James Hunt and his nemesis, Austrian champion Niki Lauda. There might even be a small role that would reunite Howard with his A Beautiful Mind star Russell Crowe as well. More below!

Miller became quite fond of Hunt who is described as a handsome, womanizing racer, but the story will also show how the model soon came to fall in love with Richard Burton, and that’s the role that Howard is looking to have Crowe take on (though it would be a very small one). Written by The Queen and Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan, the film follows three-time Formula One champion Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and his near-fatal 1976 racing season where he was nearly burned to death after his Ferrari swerved off the track in only the second lap of the German Grand Prix, crashed, and burst into flames. He emerged six weeks later to pursue his rivalry with fellow driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Sounds like a great story for the big screen, especially with Howard in the director’s chair.
