Northern Irish actor James Nesbitt has blasted accusations his new British TV show bears a striking resemblance to Hugh Laurie's hit American medical drama House.
The Cold Feet star, who is set to appear in upcoming Lord Of The Rings prequel The Hobbit, plays the lead role in Monroe as brain surgeon Gabriel Monroe.
Speculation has been rife that Nesbitt's character is similar to that of Laurie's Dr. Gregory House - but the actor has brushed off the comparisons, insisting the two shows are very different.
He tells the Manchester Evening News, "I'm hoping that my performance, Pete Bowker's writing and the very difference in the characters will dispel thoughts on that."
The show is set to debut in the U.K. on Thursday (10Mar11).
