Hugh Laurie Does Not Suffer April Fools Gladly

Someone on the House set (presumably the producers) played a prank on the cast last week on April Fool’s Day, and put up the video. Hugh Laurie is either staying in character as Dr. House, or is legitimately not amused! I love it:

I kept waiting for him to say “Some of us are trying to work here,” but he gets it across completely with his face. Hugh Laurie is the coolest party pooper in the world. (UPDATE: A source from FOX just emailed with “the secret behind Hugh’s British smirk” — he was in on the prank and was pretending not to be. So that explains the acting face! I may have had the reason wrong, but my Hugh Laurie superfan facial recognition brainware FTW.)
