Somebody page Dr. Grumpy Sela Ward is in the House. Well, she will be come May when the Once and Again beauty begins a potentially long-term arc as a former flame of Hugh Laurie's irascible doc. "This is somebody he lived with, somebody he loved and somebody he still has feelings for," series creator David Shore tells TVGuide.com, adding that Ward's arrival will shed some light on why Dr. House is such a pill. "We get to know his backstory, [including] what happened to his leg." Let me guess: He's got that pesky Kerry Weaver gene.
