You're getting Quorum Lee here as a stand-in photo, because it seemed appropriate. ;)

Okay, Jamie, time to log in to Twitter and take that "Unemployed" bit off your bio. ;)  One day after The Messengers news dropped, TV Line just reported that Jamie's been cast in NCIS as the husband of Ellie Bishop, played by Emily Wickersham:

enhanced-6725-1400105771-11

He'll appear in the Thanksgiving episode airing next month, and here's what we know so far:

TVLine has learned exclusively that Battlestar Galactica alum Jamie Bamber will appear in a November episode of TV’s most watched drama as the oft-mentioned, yet-to-be-seen NSA attorney Jake Malloy.

“We’ve waited a long time to meet Bishop’s husband, and we’ve found him in Jamie Bamber,” says NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg. “Jamie is a charming, talented actor, and we’re thrilled to have him on-board for this Thanksgiving episode and some exciting surprises to come.”

Bolding that last bit as it indicates they probably have him in mind for future episodes, too. Stay tuned for updates, this one's not far off. (We still have to wait four more months to find out how Rizzoli & Isles resolves!)

I'm just hoping he gets to survive this role. :) Also, I'm not sure my heart can take all the pretty on one screen between Jamie, Michael Weatherly and Mark Harmon.

Good news! Again detective series: thank you for this, Jamie!

I'm beyond thrilled he's finally going to be on something I can actually watch. Something I already do watch. <3333

Because I am the kind of rubbish fangirl who rarely watches TV, I had to google NCIS. I confess I got a little thrill when I discovered the N stood for Naval ;)

Nice. Just this week Bishop was discussing how adventurous she and her husband are with sex. ;-)

Nothing too exciting but I saw this on "Matt's Inside Line" on the TV Line website this morning ....

Q. I'm not ashamed to admit this is a very shallow question, but: Is there any way that NCIS' Jake could be from Oklahoma by way of London? I know that Jamie Bamber also plays characters who are not British, but that accent... sigh. –Andrea

A. Many a reader has echoed your sentiment/sigh/wish, Andrea, but I've confirmed that Bishop's husband is American, so no accent for you.

Hee! I think asta77 saw that round about the same time you did, she tweeted it out a little while ago. ;) Yeah I can't say I'm shocked, seemed like keeping his own accent on this one was a long shot.
