The Hulu original Chance offers Hugh Laurie yet another opportunity to star in a show that features his character’s surname as the title, and although the similarities don’t stop there, there aren’t as many as you’d think. He plays Dr. Eldon Chance, an empathetic neuro-psychiatrist who recommends patients to the appropriate therapist. Dr. Gregory House was a physician who’s specialty was curing fools while giving zero f--ks. Other than the both of them being doctors who look a hell of a lot like Hugh Laurie, pointing out any other similarities would be kind of a stretch -- at least until you consider their ever-shifting, emotion-based relationships with the law, and morality in general. Then they’re basically twins.
