"We have shared a connection with a large number of people," star Hugh Laurie says in the exclusive video below. "The things that we like about the show, the audience [members] like about the show. Therefore, I think it's reasonable to assume we probably would like the audience if we met them."

Fellow originating cast member Omar Epps says he hopes the audiences has gotten as much from the show as the actors have. "Hopefully it's been an exchange," he says. "You guys have watched and we've given you entertainment."
