It is so so nice to see him in a romantic role where someone like Megan is so into him. And with the hair and facial hair and the bit of forwardness who could blame her?
I watched it before I read this post and I thought the same thing about accent. Including thinking I was crazy for thinking it. I'm gonna say it only seemed that way because it was so few words. Or something. Mostly I don't want to get my hopes up.
He can be charming but it doesn't show up very often. It was a shame that on L&O the one time he really tried to woo someone was with a 13 year old girl. That just made it sad and cruel. But still I remember watching it thinking, "This! Why is THIS guy not on my TV more?"
But diving in for the unexpected kiss and that smile as the elevator closes? I don't actually have words to express what I want to here but I will trust that everyone around these parts knows.
