First Look: Amber Tamblyn on House

by at . Comments

As teased last week, House will soon hire a replacement for Thirteen.

At Cuddy's behest, the team will take on a female named Martha Masters, played by Amber Tamblyn. This medical student will face a considerable challenge when she first arrives in Princeton-Plainsboro, as teased by producer Katie Jacobs to TV Guide:

"Considering how horrific House is to doctors, just imagine him being your first mentor. Her first challenge is: Can she stay on House's team?"

Tamblyn will debut on the season's sixth episode and deal with a patient played by Jack Coleman, as seen above.

"I'm the case of the week, so I worked with almost all the doctors, including Amber, who was fantastic," said the former Heroes star. "I think people are going to love and relate to her role - a socially awkward kid who was always a little ahead of everyone else."

Oh, dear...I hope she's just temporary. Olivia Wilde was starting to grow on me, and while I liked Amber Tamblyn in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I just cannot imagine her on House.

You know another really good business? Teeny tiny baby coffins. You can get them in frog green or fire engine red. Really. 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.
