Jamie Bamber Interview: The Morton Report, 22 August 2011

The Morton Report just posted this lengthy interview with Jamie, in which he discusses L&O:UK at length (note that there are NO spoilers for the ending of Series 5, so those of you who are watching the show on BBC America are OK to read it), as well as Outcasts, John Doe, Un jour mon pere viendra and CSI: Miami. (It was before the Perception casting broke, so fair enough, no more news there. ;))

As a Dame Guv fan, I loved this paragraph:

“Harriet has a huge reputation as far as the stage, and I’m still in awe of the theatre, primarily when I see great theater. There’s something so immediate about that ability to present a character and captivate an audience of 1,500 people who are actually there in front of you and you can gauge whether or not it works. I find something mesmerizing about a theater actor who is really up on his or her game, and it’s always fascinating to see someone who you admire on so many levels in the flesh day in and day out. Harriet is a lovely lady, great fun, smart, has a good sense of humor and a pleasure to work with. She’s a fantastic actress and it’s a real privilege for us to have her on Law & Order.”

Jamie Bamber Cast in TNT's New Series, 'Perception'

More great news for Jamie....and us. AOL TV's MO Ryan has just broken the news that Jamie has been cast in a reoccurring role on TNT's 'Perception'. Here what we know so far:

Jamie Bamber, who played Lee "Apollo" Adama on 'Battlestar Galactica' and went on to appear in 'Law & Order: UK,' will have a recurring role on the new TNT series 'Perception,' which stars Eric McCormack as Dr. Daniel Pierce, an odd neuroscience professor who helps the FBI crack cases.

Bamber will guest at least twice on 'Perception' as a new professor who catches the eye of Allison Bannister (Rachel Leigh Cook), Pierce's FBI handler and former student.

'Perception,' which also stars Kelly Rowan and Arjay Smith, premieres in the summer of 2012.

TV by the Numbers has some additional background on the series, which began production last week. And from Jamie's awesome representative, I was able to learn he will be playing Dr. Michael Hathaway.

How excited are we for the fall summer TV season to begin?
