James Callis Joins Jamie Bamber in '17th Precinct'
BFFs James Callis and Jamie Bamber - Together Again! (via Deadline.com)

James will be playing Jeff Bosson, Caolan Longstreet's partner. Here's the description of Jeff from the casting sides: Jeff has a British accent, is also in his 30s, has long dark hair, also slender, but with the professional slouch of someone who takes pride in avoiding the gym. And given Coalan is described as blonde, with short hair, a slender build, very fit, in his mid 30s, and projects a seriousness of purpose and deep focus.....I'm sensing that Ron may have had certain individuals in mind when he was writing the script. ;)

Matt Long also joins the cast. No specific word on his role, but my guess would be the rookie detective, Jimmy Travers. Further casting news should be coming more quickly. I believe filming begins next week.

So, is everyone as excited as I am? :D

My mouth has actually fallen open, seriously.

The fangirl part of my brain is screaming, "awesome!", the cynical part of my brain however is sniggering, "I think I read this crack fic already, Ron."

Is it wrong I'm imagining they're rehearsing for BSG and Jamie is helpfully reading six's lines?

I saw this picture and James's look towards Jamie and suddenly hear "the Look of Love" I wonder why??? lol
xwacky From: xwacky Date: March 4th, 2011 05:03 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Hee. BRITMANCE! Love that word. *g*

Between this pic and your gif earlier, my glee over the Jamie & James reunion just went impossibly into double-drive. I hope you don't mind me saving these images for my own. ;p

Oh they must be thrilled! Lovely to see good friends working together. Also puts the speculation to rest that Jamie and RDM had some sort of falling out during the last season of BSG. Obviously they get on just fine!

About time they cast some more women though!
I just have one question: just in case it doesn't get picked up, do pilots of shows without a series order sometimes end up online? Because I hate to think we might never see it.

Sometimes they do; unfortunately, the ratio is relatively small. But rest assured, if the worst case scenario happens, there will be a whole army of fans hunting it down. ;)

It's not common, but it does happen. And given the rabid BSG fanbase, I would have hope someone would get their hands on a copy if it doesn't get picked up to series. Though, given the casting and the buzz it's generating, it's chances improve daily. :)

Oh great, I have faith in the BSG fandom's resourcefulness.
I'm just a bit anxious, since NBC seems to have a lot in the pipelines with a couple of big names attached (and "Grimm" seems a bit similar).
I also read mixed reviews of the script, some really didn't like it. Although I have seen a few people say good things about it too, so...
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: March 3rd, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
There's been a LOT of grousing about the script. Wish I could speak to it more succinctly because I still have no access to the entire thing, BUT... well, for one thing, it's unclear how much the script may still receive tweakage. Also, many a series have overcome meh pilots to go on to greatness. (Heck, I'm a big ol' slavering Fringe fan, and I did NOT think that pilot was all that awe-inspiring. It took them several episodes to hit their stride.)

It's never a good idea to get married to the idea of a show without a pickup. But the pedigree on 17th keeps getting better.

I can't speak to the script for 'Grimm', but the casting is not inspiring. Of the three people cast, I only recognize one of them. ;)

OH.MY.GOD! *picking jaw off the floor*

Yes, me too! :D

If they were going to scavenge from BSG, that's not a bad choice at all. :) A little surprising that they grab the two Brits, but they do seem to get along smashingly, and a fun set is a big plus for any show.

Makes the "Jamie doesn't get to use his natural accent" thing more likely, but that's all right.
asta77 From: asta77 Date: March 4th, 2011 12:34 am (UTC) (Link Me)
I'm amused that, once again, it looks like James will get to keep his accent while Jamie has to lose it. But Jamie's American accent is better than James'. Makes sense with an American father.

My first thought when I heard the news was to wonder, if they don't haul the families up to Vancouver, if they will be roomies? :D

this is a nice news. if they're going to let them put some of the banter that we saw between JB and JC in the interviews out there into their characters is going to be great.
From: (Anonymous) Date: March 4th, 2011 11:52 am (UTC) (Link Me)
Can't wait for these two to start doing interviews about the show. They need to promote the show together before it airs.

Holy ----! Whoa. While I'm thrilled at this news, I'm starting to get worried if more BSG alum joins the project.

Thanks for the update.
