“I think I have been rather spoiled here (in America),” he said. “I can’t imagine there will be another one quite like this. … And I think I am extremely lucky to have had the one shot that I have had at it, and I wouldn’t go looking for lightning to strike twice.”

Hugh Laurie isn’t too sure he wants to continue his television career once House ends. Which isn’t exactly news: Laurie expressed a similar reluctance way back in May, too.

But this isn’t it for Hugh! The actor goes on to say that he would still like to pursue writing or directing. “I find the whole field of it fascinating,” he says.
