George Clooney and Hugh Laurie came together for a reunion of American medical drama television series ER on the late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live.
George Clooney and Hugh Laurie
Clooney reprised his role as Dr Ross who checked on a patient, played by the show's host Jimmy Kimmel. But when Dr Ross needed the assistance of his co-workers, no one was there.
Kimmel explained that the other original cast members, such as Julianna Margulies, Noah Wyle and Eriq La Salle, were busy with their own schedules and couldn't make it to the reunion. Laurie, who played Dr House, made it clear that he is actually not in ER, but he is starring in another medical drama, House M.D.
Things then got intense as Kimmel was "crashing". Clooney tried to bring him back by performing CPR and Laurie reminded him of a technique that they learnt from TV medical school, "a rapper's delight".
Clooney began rapping while Laurie was dancing, and it did work.
"I used hip-hop to save his life," so he claimed.
