DR. MCMANIPULATIVE BASTARD: EW has a fascinating story about House this week, which reveals that Denis Leary, Patrick Dempsey, and Rob Morrow were all considered for the role before it went to Hugh Laurie. Dempsey and Morrow would have been disastrous, but Leary might just have pulled it off. I see two directions we can go from here. First, offer up other names of people who you think could have played famous television parts (Lauren Graham as CJ Cregg? John Cusack as Sam Seaborn?). Second, discuss other "near misses." (Tom Selleck as Indiana Jones comes to mind immediately.)
