Lee - Awesome - Airings

As If I Needed Another Reason to Love Jamie

Jamie did a brief interview with IGN.com. Nothing spoilery and we're getting to the point he's being asked the same questions about the end of the series and giving out the same answers. However, there is this portion of the interview that is very interesting in light of the upcoming prop auction:


Q: What did you steal from the set?

Bamber: Everything, everything. I'm not going to give you details, but I've got everything. Everything that I wanted, I got. Everything I could fit in my yard!

Q: Was there anything you had to have a tug of war with Katee Sackhoff over?

Bamber: No, because the stuff I took was basically mine. They were cool – [The execs] would probably clobber me. I know the vultures were circling to sell it off on eBay for General Electric's profit. But we took it upon ourselves to desecrate it all and take as much as we could, and I think we did a good job with it.


Let me say this, the prop catalog is gorgeous and I'm very happy I bought a copy, but I've had suspicions since the auction was first announced about the authenticity of many of the items. Jamie stated long ago that he had taken his flight suit. And Aaron Douglas had his orange jump suit at Dragon Con. And I found it hard to believe other cast members weren't packing up items as they left. So when I read Jamie's comments I felt it was his way of telling us to save our money. :) I also love the swipe at GE. Tina Fey needs to call him about doing a guest stint on 30 Rock. ;)

In other news that makes me happy - and it's not even More Joy Day yet! - TV Squad has a sneak peak at the February 13th episode of The Sarah Conner Chronicles which is pretty cool. I still can't tell if it's real or her imagination.

It's amazing...every time that man gives an interview I find a new reason to fangirl him. He makes it so easy!
One of the things I admire about him is tells it like it is, says what he's thinking, and, much of the time, says what we're thinking. And I'm sure there is some NBC/Universal/GE exec banging their had against a desk right now. ;)
I agree. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and isn't shy about expressing his opinions. Gotta love that in an industry so saturated with yes men or unintelligent pretty boys. *swoons*
Between the flight suit and those 'interesting' shirts he wears, he must have one eclectic closet.
I love him.

I want the final Cylon to be Lee so we can all have copies. :D And they will be cheap on the auction block!

Seriously - I do recall B'riffic winning the Arrow of Apollo (and compared to what I think the auction items will fetch she must have gotten a bargain! :)). I'm sure they made multiple copies of items, but Jamie's interview just makes me that much happier with my ersatz BSG un-collectible items. I *finally* finished sewing my Viper patch that I got at D*C onto a baseball hat, and I get ridiculous amounts of glee out of wearing that thing to the grocery. I can't imagine I would be happier if I spent a thousand dollars on, say, Laura's suit - and I would be scared to wear it anyway, if I spent that much on it! (Though if TPTB choose to gift me with the BSG emblem, I wouldn't mind! *g*)

Or will they? Wouldn't most of us want two? ;)

I was trying to think of a third example of an auction item not being the original and I forgot about Bamberrific and the Arrow! I have to admit I was going back and forth on if I should try for an item or not. Sure, some of it probably was used regularly by the cast, but how many pieces and which ones? Even the descriptions of the production drawings have me a little leery. But after reading Jamie's comments I had visions of buying something, seeing him at a con again someday and telling him, and having him role his eyes at me. So, thanks, Jamie, I'll save for that BluRay player now. :)
You're welcome! I hadn't smiled so much at a vid since I saw the SGA/'We Built This City on Rock and Roll' vid. :)

Love it! :) Jamie is too awesome. And he should totally guest on 30 rock!
