House airs its 6th season finale tonight, but that doesn't mean that the cast will be loafing this summer. Several of them are filming new movies or have another big project they are working on.

Hugh Laurie, aka Dr. Gregory House, is filming a new movie called The Oranges. It's a story of a May-December romance and his co-stars include Allison Janney, Leighton Meester, Catherine Keener, Alia Shawkat, Adam Brody, Oliver Platt, Tim Guinee, Aya Cash, Heidi Kristoffer, Cassidy Gard, Sam Rosen and Stephen Badalamenti and it's expected to be released sometime in 2011. You can see some behind the scenes photos of Hugh Laurie filming in New York City recently here.

Peter Jacobson, aka Dr. Chris Taub, is filming a movie this summer too. His new film is called And They're Off. IMDb.com gives us this synopsys:

"A comedy centered on a failed horse trainer who desperately wants to be back in the winner's circle."

I'm guessing that Peter was cast in this part at least partially because of his short stature. Some of the other stars in this movie are Sean Astin, Mark Moses, Cheri Oteri, Kevin Nealon, Mo Collins and Martin Mull. This film is expected to be released in 2011.

Jennifer Morrison, aka Dr. Allison Cameron, may be gone from the regular cast, but most House fans still want to know what she's up to. Her Broadway run for The Miracle Worker is over, but she stars in a movie that's expected out later this year. The film is called Warrior. IMDb.com shows this plot summary for the movie:

"The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer  returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament -- a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother."

Robert Sean Leonard, aka Dr. James Wilson is in a ducumentary about Herman Melville. The series is called The American Experience and he's in the episode entitled Into the Deep: America, Whaling & the World.

This is a big deal for him, because he generally loves to spend his time at home with his wife and daughter. He's a self-confessed home body.

But the House cast member with the most outside projects is by far Olivia Wilde, aka Dr. Remy Hadley or Thirteen. She's in 5 upcoming movies:
Title Release Year Plot Summary
Tron: Evolution 2010 not available
Cowboys & Aliens 2011 "In Silver City, Arizona, Apache Indians and Western settlers must lay their differences aside when an alien spaceship crash lands in their city."
