What about a guest spot on one of the ubiquitous Law & Orders or CSIs?  Everyone else seems to get one. :think:  We'd get to see him and he'd get some more US exposure.

Good idea, fuzzy!  :neen: Gives me an idea for one additional post to add to my count!


  :lol:How did you get ahead of me?  So glad I could have helped. :doh:


Thank you, fuzzy! Hey, let me buy you a beer.... :beer:

A day without Ray is like a day without sunshine.....Worse, actually. A day without sunshine would save me having to put on sunscreen.

OK since apparently "Criminal Minds" is now without its lead actor, wouldn’t it be fantastic if the next head of the profiling team were a very tall British guy.  Think about it.  Send CBS some peanuts or something.

Yeah, like he could be on loan from some British agency so he could keep his loverly British accent which is one reason we love him (among many others, of course)  :lol: :neen: :ray:
Who wants to come up with the pitch for the Criminal Minds writers?  :cheer2:

Immediate assumption seems to be he is in salary negotiations and this is a tactic... but I remember they said that when he left "Chicago Hope" and the truth was that he was going blind and needed eye surgery and just kept it private.  So who knows.  Hope he is ok.  I like him a lot.

If it is a salary negotiations, shame on him. Like a million dollars an episode is not enough!? :huh:
But if it is for private reasons, then too bad because I also think Mandy is a great actor. Loved him in the "Princess Bride" movie.
But back to Ray, I could actually see that being a real solution to CBS's problem for the show. I know I would watch.  :cheer2:

Wigit, you ever thought of becoming a casting director? I think, best suggestion so far, in sofar as TV goes. 'Criminal Minds' one of my all time fav U.S imports to UK. Mandy Patikin (probably not the correct spelling, sorry!) :embarassed: though 'law & order' a good one. What about 'Shark' - could see Ray as a good opponant for James Woods or failing that an old buddy who comes back to the fore? :hmm: are we sure Ray is still in  LA? any media sightings?

Thank you Toduo.  Nice compliment.  That sounds like a fun job.  Never thought of it, though. Guessing it would be hard to break in to.

I didn't realize you were already getting Criminal Minds, Toduo.  I hadn't thought about Shark, but that is a good one, too.  I could see him as a lawyer.  My only concern about Shark is that I don't know how it's doing in the ratings.  I'd hate to see him signed on to a show right before it gets cancelled. :-\

Yes!  Ray is still in LA! Hopefully, at lots of business meetings. :caesaryes:
No.  No media sightings. :caesarno:

Fuzzy, Criminal Minds - I think its been about a year or so that its aired here. Its very on/off and hasn't been on Channel 5 (one of our 5 main channels) for a few months, though I believe it has re runs on 'Freeview' channels or Sky. 'House' would be a good one. As a rival 'popular' no-it-all doctor to House himself, who then discovers Ray to be his long lost half-brother (its the height, you see!). Hate me forever, but have never heard Ray do an American accent and not sure that I want to. I only say that because I don't think we British are generally that convincing - Hugh Laurie is an exception that comes to mind. In fact I understand that a lot of Americans were surprised to know he is British, with a very British accent! Likewise, I'm not so convinced many Americans can carry off the English accent too well - look at Dick Van Dyke in 'Mary Poppins' - embarassing!!

:huh: Wingit, won't have it that you are a techy/nerd/geek......or 'just' a techy/nerd/geek......so add those three to your good perception and voila......a Casting Director in the making !!! :cheers:

 :lol: I'm with you there!  I generally prefer any actor with their original accent, but since Ray's is especially nice, it would be shame to ruin it.  With the number of accents you hear on a daily basis in just about any setting in the US and the UK, I'm not sure why whoever makes those decisions still feels the need to make actors "fake" an accent.  There's seldom a reason that the character's origin can't be explained logically.

I've been a Laurie fan since the days of The Black Adder and Jeeves and Wooster.  Due to that, the American accent on him is very strange for me, too.  I think I've finally gotten used to it, but for the first season, every time he opened his mouth, I kept expecting his British accent.  It's almost as if his voice has changed along with it.

You mean that's not how y'all talk? :lol:  That one was truly cringe-worthy.  I agree.
