Jamie Bamber in Brideshead Revisited: BBC Radio 4 iPlayer

So you never got to hear the 2004 Radio 4 production of Brideshead Revisited, in which Jamie played Sebastian Flyte opposite Ben Miles' Charles Ryder? Your ship just came in. ;)  All four parts of the radio play are now available on BBC Radio's iPlayer! (Which unlike the BBC's streaming video, IS available to all regions of the globe. Thank goodness for that.)

Listen NOW!:
Brideshead Revisited: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

The play is ONLY available to stream until October 21st, too, so get listenin' quick!

Note: I have no idea where that picture of Ben Miles came from. It's not associated with Brideshead, they never filmed it. Juuust a radio play. There are no pics of Jamie out there from this waiting to be discovered. (Otherwise, you know me, I'd be on that like white on rice. XD)

Friday Forum: The Jamie Bamber Guest Shot Wish List, Part 2

OK, we haven't done a Friday Forum in quite some time. But news may be thin on the ground for a little while, so you may see them turn up more often. We promise not to bombard those of you who are strictly here for the NOOZE with speculative silliness. The rest of you... come right this way, won't you?

Today's Friday Forum question:
What Shows Would You Like to See Jamie Guest-Star on?

Miami-Bamber (Miamber?!) is intrigued. Tell him more, won't you?

Although, as we speculated in the comments for Sunday's post-CSI Miami discussion, Jamie probably had a pretty good payday for what was a quick couple of days' work... well, it didn't particularly stretch him to the height of his abilities, did it? Not that I think anyone here was expecting it would, but still... given that he's working on one show (Perception) that sounds really promising but where he's not a regular, and probably won't have a chance to land another gig as a regular until pilot season starts up again next winter, there is theoretically still time for him to squeeze in more guest work. And it would be awesome if said work really gave him something to chew on, as opposed to allowing him to be as charming as ever (even when he's a sociopath, LOL), but more or less the sort of thing he could do in his sleep with his hands tied behind his back and blindfolded. ;) We did a similar Friday Forum post a while back, but hey, never hurts to do it again. (We've gained several active members since then, too!)

SO... Give us at least three shows, and describe a little about why you would want him to appear on that particular show. (You can give us more than three, but you don't have to.)  I'll post mine now (behind a cut) to get the ball rolling, but if you already know what you're going to say, feel free to leap ahead to the comments and come back and read mine later!
