'kay, watched. Completely agree on the points you highlighted, asta77, with a couple of additions:

- For some reason the face he pulled during the Eddie/banana story that was actually the lecherous guy in the corporate harassment video completely reminded me of the goofiest of goofy George Carlin faces from back in his heyday. We don't get to see that Jamie nearly enough. PLEASE a daffy clown more, Bambi. ;)

- On the flip side of the extrovert/introvert coin, the part where he specifically calls out the reasons why he's not on social media is great because he points out very specifically that he's just a particularly private person and clearly isn't entirely comfortable with it. Again, something we kinda speculated and Kerry indicated at on Twitter, but it's nice to hear it from him directly. And I respect that.

- The bit where he speaks at length about not thinking about portraying a convincing hero but rather a convincing human being is not only a great quote, but kind of a self-contained acting lesson in about a 2-3 minute span. Or writing lesson, for that matter; you can't make a hero work on the page if they're not a fully realized human being. Loved that.

- At the 53 minute mark where he snuck in a dig at Arizona's immigration law, I literally applauded. Don't. EVER. Change. Bamber. ;)

I realized upon second viewing I missed about fifteen minutes of Part 1 of the video earlier today. I thought the video ended rather abruptly, but was at work, got busy and never got a chance to verify. I figured I'd be giving it another look when I got home. :) And the HD is awesome!

OK, one of the awesome things I missed was Jamie being asked about BBCA's Bamber Broadcasting Corporation commercial and his enthusiastic response to it. I wondered at the time how he reacted to it. There was also an added element of glee to the story since his friend and publicist may have been informed about the commercial by, oh, me. ;)

I was also amused that, when traveling to LA to look for work, he was going to stay with Eddie rather than in his own home. It makes me wonder who he was renting to at the time. I know Grace and Tahmoh had stayed in his home when he first moved back to the UK.

I wasn't going to say anything about the Bamber Broadcasting Co. bit because I had the exact same thought. And I figured given the circumstances it was up to you to say something about that at first. *giggle*
