Carl Reiner

Multiple Emmy winner Carl Reiner has been tapped to appear in House's fifth-season finale, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In the episode, entitled "Both Sides Now," Reiner (The Dick Van Dyke Show, the Ocean's 11 trilogy) will play a clinic patient Cuddy uses to get House's attention and force him to complete his clinic hours.

Elsewhere in the finale, House treats a man whose left and right brain operate independently. The man lives with two different personalities and has no control over his actions, making treatment difficult. Cue some "alternative methods."

The season finale airs May 11 on Fox. Does the episode sound appealing to you?
