Dr. Lawrence Kutner from The Right Stuff to Simple Explanation
Kal Penn portrayed as the 33 year-old Dr. Lawrence Kutner a fictional character on the Fox medical drama House who seems to be easily distracted by pretty women.
Lawrence Kutner became a member of House’s new diagnostic team in “Games”, the ninth episode of the fourth season. He is shown to be open-minded about any new experience which is the reason why he wants to join House’s new team.
He was fired in his first appearance for reporting Amber Volakis’s recording of patient information. He continued to work even after being fired by House. And then came up with a clever stress test for a patient’s liver, using alcohol to intoxicate the patient, which impresses House to keep him, much to Amber’s dismay.
Of all the new fellows, he is the most enthusiastic and the one most likely to go along with House in taking risks, including illegal activities. When House was finally forced to pick his new team, Dr. Cuddy suggested he hire Kutner because Kutner shares House philosophy of medicine.
House episode “Simple Explanation” delivered a shocking death,the suicide of Lawrence Kutner. He has been shot and killed, it is unknown why, though suicide is suspected. Kutner was found dead in his living space. Whether it was suicide or murder currently appears confusing.
