LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Hugh Laurie, star of the hit Fox series "House," will step behind the show's camera for the first time to direct an episode.

"I am thrilled, daunted and honored -- with a 'u' -- by this new responsibility," British actor Laurie said. "'House' scripts are Faberge eggs, and I will try my very hardest not to drop this one on a stone floor."

Laurie directed the U.K. series "Fortysomething," in which he also starred.
