Ok, for all of you having House MD Withdrawal syndrom, here is some next season of House Spoiler:
According to Michael Ausiello, Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast as House’s psych hospital roommate.
So, next season on House MD we will have Lin Manuel Miranda for at least two episodes; and the producers of the show are in the hunt for other interesting actors to perform at the psych hospital.
But who is Lin Manuel Miranda, the new actor on House sixth season?
Lin-Manuel Miranda (born January 16, 1980) is an American actor, as well as a Tony Award winning composer and lyricist. He is most famous for writing and starring in the Broadway musical In the Heights, which opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2008.
In 2002, John Buffalo Mailer and Miranda worked with director Tommy Kail and wrote five separate drafts of In the Heights that were dissected. During this time, Miranda worked as an English teacher at his old high school. After making it off-Broadway, the play went to Broadway in 2007. Miranda has announced and made his last performance with the show, on February 15, 2009.
Miranda wrote, directed, and acted in an independent film called Clayton’s Friends (1996). In 2007, Miranda made an appearance on the television series The Sopranos in the episode “Remember When.” Lin-Manuel also worked as an English teacher at his old high school, wrote for the Manhattan Times as a columnist and restaurant reviewer, and composed music for commercials. In 2008, Miranda was invited by composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz to contribute two new songs to a revised version of Schwartz and Nina Faso’s 1978 musical Working, which opened in May 2008 at the Asolo Repertory Theater in Sarasota, Florida. Miranda wrote Spanish-language dialogue and worked with Stephen Sondheim to translate into Spanish song lyrics for the revival of West Side Story, which opened on Broadway in March 2009. He is also a composer and actor on the 2009 revival of The Electric Company. On April 3, 2009 Miranda proved his beastly mettle at Hip Hop Karaoke at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NY. He performed the Black Sheep song ‘The Choice is Yours’ to rave reviews. Some have called it the best Hip Hop Karaoke performance to date by a Tony Award winner or nominee.
