Franka Potente is coming to House.

The German-born actress - who appeared on the big screen in The Bourne Identity and guest-starred on season six of The Shield - will appear in the two-hour season premiere, which is entirely based in the mental hospital in which House now resides.

House executive producer David Shore told E! Online of the opening episode:

"Those two hours take place basically exclusively within the institution" over a period of six months, as everyone's favorite damaged doctor tries to recover from the hallucinations that crippled him at the end last season.

Word has leaked out that the actress' character and House will get to know each other VERY well while in the asylum.

The antibodies in yummy mummy only protect the kid for six months, which is why these companies think they can gouge you. They think that you'll spend whatever they ask to keep your kid alive. Want to change things? Prove them wrong. A few hundred parents like you decide they'd rather let their kid die than cough up forty bucks for a vaccination, believe me, prices will drop really fast.
