FOX Promo for "House" Episode 8.5, 'The Confession'
We have our first look of Jamie in the November 7th episode of House! The good news: we see quite a bit of skin in the episode's teaser. The bad news: he seems to lose that skin as the episode progresses. O_o

Oh, FFS. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS, HOUSE!!! Talk about a sucker-punch, though. Get us all good and proper turned-on for about 2 seconds there and then OH FAPPING GODS, NO. *shriek*

In all seriousness, if you're going to force us to watch Jamie die again (which, let's face it, this is House so the deck was stacked against him), you might as well do it in a way that no one has remotely tried before. ;) Even if you are a full week's late for Halloween. Silly show.

I thought the same thing...Gee, let me put on my surprised face...Jamie dies...again. But OMG! Sloughing his skin.....ewwwwww!

LOL. No one ever dies on House, at least not in recent memory. House saves them all! <3

It is gross, though. (But there is shirtless making out at the beginning. Can't go wrong there!)

I know I fight a losing battle but why does he have to have an American accent in everything??

True. Wow they really made him look sick there. Make-up must have taken ages.

U.S. network TV isn't fond of accents. Execs don't think U.S. viewers can understand them, which, to a certain extent, is true. As long as he's working on TV here, I doubt you'll be hearing anything but the American accent. Sorry!

I know I complain in vain but I'm probably not going to stop.

He was British in Dollhouse!

Many of the guest shots he'd be up for in U.S. shows are probably written as American before he's cast, in such a way that it wouldn't make as much sense to change it. Not all are, though. Crossing our fingers he gets a regular gig next pilot season, who knows what might get thrown his way. Thing is, the fact he does such a good American accent opens up tons more work to him, which is a plus. (For him AND us. ;) )

Makes him more marketable. Hugh Laurie is a "household face" and it's because his American accent is so clean [Blackadder feels like a dream], so this is good news for us because it means he gets more work and not just as the "British Bad Guy" [sexy as that may be].

And I agree with the comments about some Americans' aversion to accents. I've tried to introduce some people to LOUK and heard grumbles about the accents [to which I say, "if you can't understand this, it's because you don't want to, those accents are easy"].

Well, hell, why not? He's making quite a career of kicking the bucket.

Just saw this on 'Ask Ausiello'. The question was about another character on HOUSE but there's a couple of quotes from Jamie in the answer.

Question: Now that Taub is coming back to House, are they gonna go into what happened with the whole double pregnancy thing? I was pretty excited to see what was gonna happen there. - Sam

Ausiello: They sure are. In fact, it's next week's duplicitous Patient of the Week, played by Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber, who serves as the catalyst for Taub coming clean about his baby quandary. "It's an episode about lies and concealing the truth and whether it's better to protect those around you from the truth," Bamber explains. "And Taub has an issue with the parentage of his two kids and what the truth is about that."

Thanks! I think it's a bit unusual to touch base with a guest star about a one off role. It's a good sign. :)

Btw, tweeted your find. I'd totally give you credit if you had a Twitter account. ;)

Has anyone else wondered just how nice it was to be the makeup artist o this episode. It looks like someone had to "work" over his entire body. His entire beautiful body....

And, according to Jamie, the makeup took five hours. :)

So, I'm home i time for this. well, i'll try to find/watch i the morning before the craziness of my work week starts. so - that's a good news.

btw, for me all this discussion about accents is sort of strange. i understand english and american accents in the same way. maybe because they are all foreign for me?
