After spending the last couple years on the sidelines, Jesse Spencer is back in the thick of things on House. In this season’s first four months alone Chase separated from his wife, murdered an African dictator, physically assaulted his boss, and took his sometimes-miserable old job back. And Jesse Spencer has been loving every minute of it. “Season 6 has been awesome,” he told me last night at Fox’s press tour party. “They’ve been writing some really good stuff for me. It’s been pretty dark, but really fun to play.”
In the following video interview, Spencer discusses the the new energy on the set, the loss of his leading lady, Jennifer Morrison, and the possibility that she might return at some point. (UPDATE: JMo’s returning!) And keep watching to see what Spencer’s co-stars, Olivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson, have to say about the show’s newest couple: Thaub.
