He’s not the most ambitious guy in the world.
No seriously. When asked what his initial reaction to discovering tonight’s Wilson-centric episode of HOUSE is entitled “Wilson,” and essentially chronicles a day in the life of everybody’s favorite sidekick when an old friend (played by THE WEST WING’s Josh Malina) checks into Princenton Plainsboro with what might-or-might-not be cancer — actor Robert Sean Leonard proclaimed, “Oh, no, it’s my worst nightmare.” And continued to recount a story revealing just how work-adverse he really is. “When I first got out here [Los Angeles] five years ago, I read NUMB3RS and thought, ‘Well this is way too many scenes, too hard and I’m not interested.’ And then I read HOUSE, and this guy Wilson was in about three scenes per episode and I thought, ‘This is perfect!’ It’s good to be the lead of a show for a week, but I wouldn’t spread it all around too much. I like my role the way it is.”
He is not a Wilson/Cuddy shipper.
Although this is probably not going to be music to “Wuddy” fans’ ears, a fairly integral component to “Team Wuddy” isn’t exactly rooting for Wilson and Cuddy to live happily ever after. “Wilson has three ex-wives, lives alone, deals with death every day and his best friend is House, he’s a very odd and dark guy,” explained Leonard when asked on a recent conference call for his take on Wilson and Cuddy’s romantic possiblities. “When I think about Wilson with Cuddy, it doesn’t work; but I think in general people have a view of him that he’s kind of warm and fuzzy, and he’d be kind of an easy guy for Cuddy to boss around, and that might actually be the relationship. I don’t think Wilson would stand it very long. I think he’s a strange man.”
