Especially if he's talking in his soft-spoken native British accent.

Irish, I believe...

But it's a deal. You get Lee, we get to divide the Boomers.

By the way, I just found out that Cutey-Pie Medic is actually Jamie Bamber's wife!

According to imdb he was born in England. His father is American and his mother is Irish. He's a mutt. I guess that explains how he can do such a great bland American accent.

For what it's worth, when I heard him speaking in the preview special they aired before the Sci-Fi Friday premiere, he sounded Irish to me...

But it's amazing how many foreigners are doing great American accents in recent years. I remember being stunned to learn that two of the leads of Without a Trace are Australian, and one British. I can remember the day when hearing an English attempt at an American accent was cause for cringing...

When did Apollo ever have sex with Six, virtual or otherwise?

I, too, have noticed this trend and applaud it. Especially the Brits, who, as you mentioned, were notorious in their inability to master the US Midwestern "non-accent" (a misnomer, I know) for years. (One notable exception: Vivien Leigh in Gone With the Wind comes to mind.)

I wonder if broader exposure to US TV shows in the past couple of decades has contributed to that.

If you...um...non-boomer-lovers want to see more of Jamie Bamber speaking with his regular accent, I highy recommend renting A&E's Horatio Hornblower movies. He plays Midshipman (later Lt.) Archie Kennedy in most of them...he's blond, British, and sometimes wet and shirtless. You'll love it.


Actually, it's really great naval military fiction, period. It's like BSG with sails!
I highly recommend it, regardless of your Lee/Boomer preference.

I call it a 'neutral American accent'
