You all know him as Dr. Gregory House on the show House. His real name? Hugh Laurie. Most people know by now that Hugh is an English fellow. And it still blows my mind seeing him in interviews because I could swear to God the guy was American. He is hands down the best American accent actor from another country.
In any event, Laurie actually had a pretty good career in Britain prior to his success here in America. He was mostly comedic on television shows, truly can play the piano, and did some very silly commercials.
