Cast Of House: How Much Are They Worth Now?
House or House, M.D. was a medical drama quite unlike what fans were used to, and it paid off! For eight glorious seasons House reigned on Fox thanks to a unique premise, witty writing, and an amazing cast featuring the likes of Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps and Jesse Spencer just to name a few. The show garnered awards for the series and actors alike as well as a massive fanbase, and now that it has already been four years since the show ended, it is about time to see how the cast is faring! Check it out:
