A simple Happy Birthday seemed insufficient to start this thread. And going on and on about your many fine qualities seemed potentially embarrassing. So, let me sum up! :) You made us love Captain Apollo and Archie Kennedy and Matt Devlin. And we're still mourning two of them. (As a side note: Firefighting is a dangerous profession. If you can survive The Smoke, we'd greatly appreciate it. Seriously.) The experience most of us had upon reading that first interview with you was something along the lines of, "Wait. This guy is also smart and funny?" And while other actors share the same platitudes and stories over and over...and over...again, you always have a fresh take to share. Even when it comes to BSG. After numerous conventions. That is quite the gift.
So, Jamie, you are worth breaking my tradition of ignoring birthdays and wishing you a very happy one. I know some people face turning forty with dread. Others will tell you forty is fabulous. And there is some substantial evidence that you have only gotten better with age.
