HOUSE’s Omar Epps: ‘We made a hell of a show’

May 21, 2012 by  

Over the past eight seasons of HOUSE, many cast members have come and gone, but with the recent departure of Jesse Spencer (Chase), only three originals from the pilot will have really maintained their status on the show throughout the entire run: Hugh Laure (House), Robert Sean Leonard (Wilson), and Omar Epps (Foreman).

(While HOUSE creator David Shore told reporters on a recent conference call that Spencer will appear in the series finale in some capacity, he admitted that Spencer’s early departure came partially due to his casting in the pilot for NBC’s now-picked up CHICAGO FIRE: “He was asked to go do a pilot, and it happened right at a time where we were considering this storyline…And we didn’t want to throw it all into the final episode; it felt a little convenient to have everything happen in the final episode.  And Jesse’s been with us since the beginning so we decided to give him his own little ending story, and I thought he was great.”)

As for Epps, his character has gone through massive changes over the seasons, going from being one of House’s original underlings to becoming the dean of medicine at Princeton-Plainsboro. I spoke with Epps at the series wrap party about his time on the series, what he thinks of where Foreman ended up and more…
