I agree, but I did find a turn in his attitude in the Born Yesterday interviews. As you say, RSL -apart from his usual sarcastic responses- also had some self-deprecating element to them. But now, he's not just saying that House is not his most important or accomplished work. He's also saying that House is not really that important to him:
It might just be me but I have always found RSL to have a self deprecating attitude in interviews regarding his work on House. Except if one of the focal points concerns working with Hugh but even then he often mocked the heavy weight of Hugh's responsibility and needed dedication to the show as something he would never be capable of less he put a gun in his mouth or jump out a window. It's just his way of expressing himself. It's either amusing to some in an over the top way or its not.
"I love 'House,' " the hit TV series in which he plays Dr. James Wilson.
He responds politely, but the compliment doesn't mean much to him.
There's nothing remotely self-deprecating in this, and these are comments that I had not seen from -or about- him before.
