If House's limp is hurting Hugh Laurie, why not fix it?

Hugh Laurie is HouseHey, Fox! Would you rather lose Hugh Laurie as the curmudgeon Dr. House, or would you rather risk what could happen to the show if he lost that trademark limp? He's been limping around the set for five years now. He's no spring chicken, and the limp is starting to take such a toll on his body, that Laurie might consider leaving House over it.

"The show might last through to (season) seven, eight or nine, but I don't know if I will because I'm starting to lose my knees," he said. "It's a lot of hip work. There are things going badly wrong." I've been reading for a few years now about how the limp has been affecting Laurie's actual health and physical well-being. I don't see why Fox doesn't just resolve this problem by eliminating the limp.

I know the chronic pain is supposed to be a facet of his character, but it's season six now. The viewers like him and can accept him as he grows and changes. We'd certainly rather deal with a pain-free House than a House-free TV schedule.

House getting rid of his cane?

HouseI'm going to file this under "I'll believe it when I see it," but StarPulse is reporting that Hugh Laurie's character Gregory House on the series House will be without his cane come next season. The article alleges that Laurie began to suffer back problems from having to limp with the cane all day, and asked producers to come up with a way for him to kick the cane to the curb. Apparently the season finale will involve House being shot in the leg, an injury that miraculously cures him. While I'm sad about the prospect of House losing his signature cane, I'm more worried that if his leg is cured he'll have no reason to consume pain killers all day. I want my House drugged up, darn it.
