Wentworth Miller

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller will guest-star on House, TVLine reports.

The actor will play a patient of the week after House (Hugh Laurie) gets released from jail. "He plays a real altruist," creator David Shore tells the site. "And there's some question as to whether that's his symptom or not."
