A lawsuit was filed this week by a former assistant prop master on the show House M.D., claiming that the life behind the scenes was anything but ordinary (or safe!)
The bitter employee, Carl Jones, claims he was fired from the show back in March because he wasn't down with the "degenerate conduct" of his superiors.
What kind of stuff are we talking about here?
Well, apparently Carl's bosses enjoyed going to strip clubs, getting completely trashed, getting freaky in their trailers and snorting cocaine. You know, the typical Hollywood scene.
On top of that, Carl insists that his bosses would often refer to him and some of his fellow employees as "fags, pussies, bitches, slaves, dummies, retards and idiots."
Again, not very nice. We certainly don't condone that kind of behavior - but it sure as hell gets worse!
Carl says that one his supervisors brought a gun to the set "several times" and that he often watched his bosses get drunk and engage in "throwing a knife at a target on set."
Whoa! Dangerous! And really stoopid!
Because he wasn't down with getting wasted and throwing sharp objects, Carl claims he was "blackballed" from future work on the show. He's suing for more than $1,000,000 in damages, claiming to have suffered physical injury from his time on the show as well as developing depression since leaving.
Our question is - is Hugh Laurie in on all this???
