I don't think Jamie was unhappy working on LOUK. I do think he was unhappy with the British TV industry as a whole and is happier working within the US industry, even with it's own set of problems, though money isn't one of them. Jamie's contract was up (as was that of all the LOUK actors) at the end of filming of the third series. I always assumed he would choose not to renew his contract (IF ITV decides to commission more series) and, when Ron approached him with 17th Precinct, it led to him asking for a early release from his contract.

I know it's wrong of me but I blame Ron Moore for taking Matt Devlin away from me! :-)

I am comforted by the idea that he wasn't unhappy on LOUK. And I'm hoping that he gets a recurring role on something I love like White Collar, then he can stay stateside and wear yummy suits or something gritty like Game of Thrones, he could play one of the beautiful, screwed up Lannisters. . . .

I am off to sulk.

Everything I have read and seen he loved doing Law and Order UK. The problem with British television is that ratings don't mean anything. Something can have high ratings and they will still cancel it if they decide it cost too much and that show (like it's American cousins) was 85% location.

I do hope he ends up starring in something on USA, AMC or one of the paid cable channels. In all honesty I never felt that Moore used him all that well on BSG until the last season then of course it was too late. I was very captivated by Matt Devlin and can't help but think Moore was too since apparently Jamie was the first person he cast.

He's a gem he will shine soon enough! =)
