Character Bio

Dr. James Wilson photo
James Evan Wilson is a doctor, specifically an oncologist (cancer specialist), that sometimes works with Gregory House. He is Princeton-Plainsboro's Head of Oncology. Dr. Wilson is also Dr. House's sole good friend.

Wilson, one of three brothers from a Jewish household,[3] has an undergraduate degree from McGill University, and graduate degrees from Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania. During a medical convention in New Orleans that he attended shortly after graduating medical school, Wilson accidentally broke an antique mirror and started a bar fight when a man, allegedly House, repeatedly played "Leave A Tender Moment Alone" by Billy Joel to the frustration of Wilson, who was going through his first divorce at the time. Out of interest, House bailed him out and hired an attorney to clear his name, thus starting their professional and personal relationship. In the season 1 episode "Histories", it is revealed that one of his brothers is homeless and that Wilson is unaware if he is still alive as he has not seen him in nine years. Wilson has a history of failed marriages: his third marriage takes place during the show's first season and, with the discovery of his wife's infidelity, ends during the second season. After the failure of his third marriage, Wilson lives in various temporary accommodations (including a stint at House's own apartment) until he meets Amber Volakis. He is described as "nearly 40" in Don't Ever Change.
