George Clooney, Hugh Laurie come together for ‘ER’ reunion

Los Angeles, Feb 3 (IANS) Actors George Clooney and Hugh Laurie’s came together for a reunion of American medical drama television series “ER” on the late night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”.

Clooney reprised his role as Dr. Ross who checked on a patient, played by the show’s host Jimmy Kimmel. But when Dr. Ross needed the assistance of his co-workers, no one was there.

Kimmel explained that the other original cast members, such as Julianna Margulies, Noah Wyle and Eriq La Salle, were busy with their own schedules and couldn’t make it for the reunion.

Whereas Laurie, who played Dr. House, made it clear that he’s actually not in “ER”, but he’s starring in another medical drama, “House M.D.”

Things then got intense as Kimmel was “crashing”. Clooney tried to bring him back by performing CPR and Laurie reminded him of a technique that they learnt from TV medical school, “a rapper’s delight”.

Clooney began rapping while Laurie was dancing, and it did work.

“I used hip-hop to save his life,” so he claimed.

The episode will air in India on Thursday on Star World and Star World HD.
