'House' exclusive: Orlando Jones checks in as Foreman's brother

House is finally introducing us to the missing branch in Foreman’s family tree.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Orlando Jones has been cast as Foreman’s estranged (and currently incarcerated) brother, Marcus.

Although we have previously met Foreman’s father and mother (played by Charles S. Dutton and Beverly Todd, respectively), his brother has only been mentioned in passing. Little is know about Marcus except that he, like Foreman, had a troubled childhood.

Jones’ episode, which has already been shot and is scheduled to air in February, finds the siblings reconnecting on the eve of Marcus’ parole hearing. Not surprisingly, House sticks his nose where it doesn’t belong, but the less I say about that piece of the story the better (my annual invite to David Shore and Katie Jacobs’ New Year’s Eve slumber party is already in danger of getting lost in the mail). Just trust me when I say his meddling leads to a pretty big development.

Great casting, don’tcha think?

    I would watch Orlando Jones in anything, being is House just makes it a better treat

  • Myndrunner

    Bout Time Orlando Jones got more screen time! From The Replacements to Drumline, OJ needs his own show!

    • Paige

      I so agree. He has such a range that he can be great in anything.

    • Kim

      No – more movies please. I would not like to see him move to TV permanently.

  • Lilac

    Love him, but not ecstatic on another Foreman centric episde.

    Anyways, Cuddy should leave. Her fans are annoying.
    But whatever, it’s not like I watch.

    Scrubs+Mercy+ER+Grey’s Anatomy = better than this show that is House MD. Seperately.

    • dutchie

      House is better than Scurbs+Mercy+GA+ER combined. The end.

      • Fiona

        LOL. Not. Agree with Lilac.

        All the fangirls here have got to stfu on opinions.

      • J

        Mercy is awful, Grey’s is a soap, ER isn’t even on tv anymore, and Scrubs used to be good.
        [H]ouse is king of the medical drama.

      • LOL

        Hamerons are still here spreading bitterness!

      • Liz

        House used to be much better, Huddy makes it pretty soapish on the other hand. Speaking as a non-shipper who’d rather see House/Wilson or House/Cameron than any other pairing.

      • Jack

        Huddy is Dead! Long live the Luddites! (j/k)

      • Fortiety

        OMG, Hamerons will never go away! They are zombies.

    • Ste

      If you don’t watch House what are you doing here?

    • Liz

      Not that excited about another Foreman centric episode either. I’d prefer Cameron back and more House/original team! Or Blythe House! I’d love to see her again!

  • nick

    your stupid

    • CJ

      Wanna bet she’s a hameron?

      • Liz

        Wanna bet your stupid? And I bet you don’t get how ridiculous you are. I bet you’re Huddy, right?

      • CJ

        My stupid what? And no, considering how hamerons keep acting that was just pointing out the obvious.
        Btw, I’m all for House and Stacy and I like Cuddy and Lucas together.

  • Estee

    That’s awesome news! I love Orlando Jones!

  • Dave

    Nice casting. Shows once again why House is the best show on TV and the most watched show in the world.

    • Mel


  • Nook

    Great casting, yes.

  • Deanne

    “…his meddling leads to a pretty big development” On House that always means someone is fired or quits. He we go again! Is it Foreman’s turn this time?

    • Chappel

      Not always. Sometimes it means House hallucinates.

  • Ste

    Great! House is the best show ever :)

  • amanda

    Uh oh.. Ausiello is in trouble!

  • Harv


  • Matt

    I’m pretty excited about this episode. Foreman has always been among the top of my list, as long as he’s not paired with Thirteen.

  • Bubbles

    Can’t wait. I’ve been curious about Foreman’s brother since S1.

  • Daniel

    Ok. I officially love Foreman’s family. Dutton, Todd … now Jones. Epic!

  • Sarah

    eh i’m not really familiar with this guy.

    but a huge LOL at all the comments here.
