'House' Adds Prison Doctor Character to Cast 

George Doyle/Stockbyte(NEW YORK) -- Actress Odette Annable will be joining the season eight cast of House this fall as a series regular, reports.

The 26-year-old actress will play a prison doctor whom Dr. Gregory House, the character played by Hugh Laurie, meets--spoiler alert!--while behind bars.

According to, House will invite the prison doc to join his team at the hospital.

Annable, who was seen recently in the Fox comedy Breaking In, will be the only female regular on House this season following the departure of Lisa Edelstein and Amber Tamblyn, and Olivia Wilde's decision to split her acting time between the series and making movies.
