Jamie Bamber and Bradly Walsh NPR Interview
For those who were unable to listen Jamie and Bradley's interview or may have missed it, it will be up on NPR's website at 12:00pm EST today. You can find a link to Weekend Edition Saturday, along with a brief recap of the interview, HERE. It looks like they may be posting just Jamie and Bradley's segment on that page, otherwise the interview was about forty minutes into the program and lasted roughly ten minutes. I believe zegeekgirl will try and use her magic to post their segment later today. ;)

The NPR recap does a nice job of hitting upon the highlights, but my two favorite moments had to be when Scott Simon referred to Jamie/Matt as the "cute one" in the partnership, then asked Mr. Walsh if that was the wrong thing to say. And as the interview ends, Bradley throws in a "Dun Dun".

Also, Jamie doesn't understand why the British can't get over the wig tradition. I think the American in him is showing. ;)

ETA: NPR has kindly provided a link for download, but if it doesn't work for some reason, zegeekgirl has posted a mirror HERE.

thanks for the link. I'll do on and listen when i get home from work tonight. but i managed to look at the article and this It's a contrast that recalls the partnership of Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt) on the original show. made me smile because even they tried to make Matt into the new Mike Logan... i always felt that is something off in that parallel.

While I haven't seen all of L&O, I've seen quite a few episodes over the years and I felt Matt was a combination of Curtis and Logan rather being a direct parallel to one or the other.

I saw most of them and even if never tried to make a comparison between Mike and Rey (as Lennie's long standing partners and all), I do agree with your assessment that Matt is somewhere in between them. he has some of the same background as Mike but his attitude towards situations is more like Rey's. i can't give specifics right now mainly because this is more like a feeling for me than a fact.

As a longtime L&O watcher, I agree that Matt is a combo of Mike and Rey from the original L&O as well as his own character.

It was a good interview! They both sound like lovely guys in real life too. I too wonder why the British Judges still use the wigs, we here, an ex British colony, got rid of them years ago.
Thanks for the link

There is actually a download link on that page where you can grab an MP3 file of the interview, too! (Well done, NPR.) That said, in case anyone has any problems w/ the links or stumbles across this post after a week's time when the new show gets posted... here's a mirror. ;)

thank you for uploading the interview :-)
one question : was it a "live" interview with them?
asta77 From: asta77 Date: January 15th, 2011 07:03 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
No, it wasn't live. It was pre-recorded.

Thank you so much and for the mirror!

Loved listening to them. They sure seem to have a great partnership even off the cameras. :)

Hee, the cute one. Of course he is!
