Talked football with Oxford United supporter Hugh Laurie when we met up at the W Hotel in West Hollywood.
Oxford-born Hugh, who went to school there but attended university at Cambridge, was naturally naturally delighted with League Two Oxford United's 3-2 upset of Premier League club Swansea City in the FA Cup's third round.
Hugh, who for eight years starred in House and will soon be seen in the mini-series The Night Manager, had faith that Oxford, who face Blackburn in the next round, could go all the way.
"It's such a crazy season that anything can happen," he says. "It's so unpredictable and I'm looking forward to seeing Oxford at Wembley."
Sadly for Hugh, they lost 3-0 to Blackburn.
