From In the Heights to in the nut house.
In very cool casting news (for those of us that have attended numerous Broadway plays in order to satisfy our lovely, musical-loving fiancee), Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear on at least two episodes of House next season.
Sources tell Michael Ausiello that the Tony Award-winning Miranda, who wrote and starred in In the Heights, will play House's mental hospital roommate. Look for him to debut in the season six premiere.
The character's name will be Stomp. He's described as a natural "percussionist" who constantly taps out his own personal rhythm.
The singer won't be the only guest star to take on the role of a mentally imbalanced character; House producers are seeking other "interesting actors" to populate the psychiatric facility that will be House's residence for the foreseeable future.
