Hugh Laurie Out

April 2, 2005: Hugh Laurie Quits as Perry White

We're hearing from our sources within the making of "Superman Returns" that Hugh Laurie has backed out of his agreement to play Perry White.

The April issue of Entertainment Weekly indicates that Hugh's highly successful TV show, HOUSEmd (produced by Bryan Singer) will start its new season in August, meaning Hugh Laurie is unable to play the role of the gruff Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Planet newspaper. Here's an excerpt from the EW article:

    House's likely early return means Laurie won't be able to play the role of Perry White in Singer's new Superman movie, now filming in Australia.

There's currently no word as to who will replace him.

We'll bring you more details as they become available.
