That Time George Clooney Met ‘House’ for an Almost ‘ER’ Reunion on Kimmel
Ubiquitous though they are these days, cast reunions aren’t always so easy to put together. Jimmy Kimmel and George Clooney learned this the hard way, trying to reunite the cast of ER for a new sketch, but hey, there’s always the time Doug Ross met Dr. House! That happened, right? I don’t watch TV. Yes, I appreciate the irony.
In any case, Clooney dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! in promotion of his latest Coen brothers effort Hail, Caesar!, though the busy schedules of ER’s prolific cast prevented a full reunion. Well, schedules, and Taco Tuesdays, but look! Hugh Laurie dropped by to fill in as Dr. House, though that technically puts the clip in the realm of a Tomorrowland reunion.
It’s a solid bit, perhaps a bit long on the medical jargon, but if you ever wanted George Clooney to perform “Rapper’s Delight” while Hugh Laurie dances, what a Wednesday this must be for you!
In the meantime, start the hype for an inevitable ER reboot. You know it’s coming.
