Even knowing that Hugh Laurie played Bertie Wooster (one of the funniest television series ever), I have a hard time associating his current persona with anybody but House. So hearing him speak in his "normal" voice makes me think he's "acting." I never even suspected that some of the other actors mentioned in this story were British or Australian. I saw Anthony LaPaglia a couple of years ago in an Aussie arthouse flick (Lantana) and thought at the time, "What'd they cast an American for?"
