Wicked hot Jesse Spencer plays Dr. Robert Chase on Fox’s hit show House. He’s got an adorable Aussie accent and floppy blonde hair. His acting isn’t going to win any awards, but he’s so very pretty to watch.
On the show, he hooked up with another of Dr. House’s interns, Dr. Allison Cameron.
In real life, he hooked up with the actress who plays Dr. Cameron, Jennifer Morrison. They were engaged, but instead broke up in 2007.
On the show, their on-screen relationship is apparently still going on, but it’s hard to tell because both characters are way way way on the backburner ever since the show brought in new doctors for House to abuse. None of the new characters is as hot as Jesse.
Back in real life, Jesse has had the requisite gay rumors in the past, but now has a new girlfriend he was swooning over at the recent Emmy awards. Her name is Louise Griffiths. They were introduced by mutual friends two months ago, according to Star.
The 29-year-old Aussie “seemed very happy” when he escorted Louise Griffiths to the Entertainment Tonight Emmy party on Sept. 21, a source tells Star. “He was holding her hand and introducing her to everyone he knew. They acted like boyfriend and girlfriend.”

If he introduced Louise to everyone he knew, I wonder if that included his recent ex Jennifer, who also at the Emmys?
By-the-by, Jennifer is rumored to be dating Amaury Nolasco of Prison Break.
Jesse’s Dr. Chase had some good plotlines early in the show, but now he’s been regulated to occasional quips while doing surgery. They should give him more to do or just write him off so he can go be pretty on a movie screen.
According to IMDB, British actress Louise has appeared in a film called The Devil’s Chair and a British reality show called Fame Academy, which she didn’t win. She’s also listed in the cast of All’s Faire in Love, about competing Renaissance fairs.
Like Jesse, she was also previously engaged, to race car driver Jensen Button, but Button called off the wedding.
—————–Possible Spoilers for House—————–
Another of House’s original dethroned interns, Dr. Foreman, played by Omar Epps, will be getting more substantial screen time, according to Michael Ausiello in the October 10 issue of Entertainment Weekly.
EW reports Foreman and Thirteen, played by Olivia Wilde, “are going to be spending a serious amount of time together,” according to executive producer Katie Jacobs. Will Foreman be able to cure Thirteen’s Huntington’s disease?
