If you had told me a few years ago that I would, in the not too distant future, regard Hugh Laurie as a hunkie I would have laughed in your face. Seriously. I can still remember the geeky comedian who played socially awkward and dry. Then the Americans imported him.
All of a sudden he is House. I remember when I first saw him as House, it was in a TV ad for the oncoming first season. My jaw dropped through the floor and I exclaimed “That CANNOT be Hugh Laurie, its not f***ing possible!”
Ever since then I have eaten my words and regarded Hugh Laurie with completely different eyes. So, yes, he is without any shadow of a doubt a Hunkie (with a capital H)
I was always surprised that not one of you had nominated the delightful Hugh Laurie, and finally I had to resort to nominating myself. Then lo and behold two minutes after this scheduled post went live a nomination landed in my inbox – talk about coincidental!
