DEAR STACY: I miss "House"! Is Hugh Laurie planning to return to acting any time soon? I know he's been busy doing music. — Sarah L., Canton, Ohio
DEAR SARAH: Yes, his new "Didn't It Rain" album of classic blues songs just came out this month, so, indeed he is focused on his music. He is to be in Disney's planned sci-fi flick, "Tomorrowland," with George Clooney. Laurie's set to play the primary villain in the December 2014 release inspired by the Disneyland theme park area. It will be directed by Brad Bird ("The Incredibles"). However, Laurie turned down the villain role in the "Robocop" remake because it would have conflicted with his recording. And Laurie has made it quite clear he prefers playing music to acting.
DEAR STACY: I say Barbara Walters is in her eighties, easily. My coworker doubts me. Please verify so I can get a free lunch out of this. — Ronald A., Wichita, Kan.
DEAR RONALD: Bon apetit. Walters is 83, her date of birth being Sept.
DEAR STACY: I am sure I read that Larry Romano, who was on "King of Queens," is a brother of Ray Romano. But I haven't been able to find any more information about that. Is it true? — Paula E., Spokane, Wash.
DEAR PAULA: You may well have read that, because it has been reported in error that the two performers are siblings. It is not true. Richard is Ray's older brother (by a year and a half) and Robert is his younger bro (by seven years).
DEAR STACY: I never get tired of seeing the commercial for the Microsoft Windows tablet that has all the precision movements choreographed to the beats. Is that drumming from a record? Who did it? — Les G., New Port Richey, Fla.
DEAR LES: That beat-iful soundtrack was done especially for the spot by The Bangerz.
