British actor Hugh Laurie is having problems convincing his children to move with him to Los Angeles.

Laurie has moved from London to Los Angeles star in the new hit drama HOUSE, and after several months of living in the Californian city, the actor has yet to convince his offspring that they'll one day enjoy living in Tinseltown.

He says, "They've just been out here for a month... My kids were pretty sniffy about Los Angeles. It's not quite snobby, they just need to be convinced.

"My eldest son continues to be that way. He's very English... My daughter's up for it. She's now decided Los Angeles is a good thing and my middle son, who's 14, sort of could go either way."
