Producers Evict Jennifer Morrison from House
House is one of the world's biggest television shows, so one can see why original cast member Jennifer Morrison would want to keep her job there, even as the addition of new characters demoted her to little more than a glorified extra over the past few seasons. And hey, she played Kirk's mom in Star Trek this year...maybe that could earn her a little more screen time, right? Not quite, says EW's Michael Ausiello:
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Jennifer Morrison is leaving House.
Neither Fox nor Morrison's reps would comment, but I'm told the actress did not quit; her exit was a creative decision on the part of producers. Morrison -- the first of the show's original cast members to depart -- shot her last scene earlier this week and her final episode will air in November.
Suspicions about Morrison's House future were raised last week when she was MIA at the show's premiere screening in Hollywood.
Tough break! Maybe Obama is hiring?
