Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener Talk THE ORANGES, Favorite Breakfast Cereal, HOUSE, and More

     October 2, 2012


Opening this weekend is Julian Farino’s The Oranges. The film is about two families who are best friends and neighbors- until one of the daughters (Leighton Meester) begins an affair with her father’s best friend (Hugh Laurie), and the comical and emotional aftermath of that affair. The all-star cast includes Catherine Keener as Laurie’s wife who finds a new purpose in life, Allison Janney and Oliver Platt as Nina’s bewildered parents and Alia Shawkat as Laurie’s daughter- and Nina’s former best friend turned arch rival. It also stars Adam Brody and up-and-comer Sam Rosen.

At the press junket for the film, I was able to speak to Laurie and Keener about their breakfast preferences, how they got involved in the film, working with an ever-present screenwriting team, and of course, Doctor House.  Hit the jump to watch.

Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener:

  • What kind of cereal do they like (they’re always eating it in the movie)
  • What made them want to be part of the film
  • What is was like working with a screenwriting team that was always on set
  • Does Laurie miss Dr. House?
