Jamie's Place and Chat

(After his "Pretender" episode, "Agent of Year Zero"


Jamie Denton says, "Hey guys--"
Jamie Denton says, "Thanks for the good reviews..."
Jamie Denton says, "Need a writing job Matt?"

Yoda_Lyle says, "Jamie: What were you really eating?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Some kind of beef"
Jamie Denton says, "Using the term"beef" loosely"

Yoda_Lyle says, "How many times did MTW get to dump water on you?"

Jamie Denton says, "I spent most of the day in those wet pants"

kar328 says, "was the water at least warm??" 

Jamie Denton says, "The water my feet were in was warm--the bucket wasn't"

Yoda_Lyle says, "Is Ryan Merriman in the next episode?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Not sure about Ryan--I'm not in it"

mc_california says, "How often did you get dumped with the cold bucket?"

Jamie Denton says, "We probably only did the dumping part of the scene 5 or 6 times"

HDessart says, "Hi Jamie! Fantastic performance last night! "

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks Hdessart"

Achoo13 says, "so what's up with the tatoo, trying to look like Lance Henriksen?"

Jamie Denton says, "My tattoo was covered and the cannibal one drawn on"

JDsMoegirl says, "Ahem, I, for one, am a fan of the tattoo.......hehe"

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks Sarah--glad your mom's better"

IWriteForYou says, "I have an absentee question ..." 

Jamie Denton says, "Shoot Lois" IWriteForYou says, "Paula Pern would like to know if the scene where MP and Lyle were trapped together got filmed then cut" Jamie Denton says, "Nope--you saw all that was filmed" IWriteForYou says, "Thanks - I'll pass it on :-)" ...

Yoda_Lyle says, "How did Lyle's face get bruised--was that a cut scene" 

Jamie Denton says, "The bruise was from Jarod abducting Lyle"

Chickydoodles says, "was that a real cattle prod?"

Jamie Denton says, "The prod *did* work"

missinglincoln says, "You gave a very "interesting" once-over of your assistant (Lucy?).  (And it WAS a nice dress)." 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks Matt"

catherine_ho_99 says, "is it my imagination or is mr. lyle ALWAYS giving ms. p 'once overs'?  especially in this ep." 

Jamie Denton says, "Always, Catherine"

Chickydoodles says, "Jamie, it amazes me how such a nice man like you can play such an evil man like Lyle" 

Jamie Denton says, "That surprising since you've met me, Linda..."

wallflower_89 says, "Jamie- My mom says she can never see you as a bad guy because she knows how nice you really are, (she met you at the In Walked Monk Dinner)" 

Jamie Denton says, "That's nice of her Wallflower"

Jamie Denton says, "She's both" (in answer to the question posed by several people regarding whether "Lucy" was an ‘assistant' or a ‘secretary' to Lyle)

THEPASSION81 says, "Jamie, this episode was shown "out of order", is this correct?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Yeah, many have been this year"

Lady_Zoe7 says, "Jamie, is there any limit you would consider setting on what you'll do with Lyle?  I mean, the guy sank to new lows in last night's ep, and I really didn't think that could be possible!!  It's very disconcerting to have had the chance to get to know you a little bit, and then see this awful person coming from you! LOL!!"

Jamie Denton says, "Don't believe everything Lyle offers you about himself.    If Lyle were a cannibal, do you think he'd get a tattoo and advertise it?"

Yoda_Lyle says, "WHere was Mr. P?" 

Jamie Denton says, "It's been hard to get Harve Presnell to the set this year"

HDessart says, "What happened to HP?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Harve is just so busy, it's tough to write him in"

Yoda_Lyle says, "I think Zoe was J's token chick of the week" 

Jamie Denton says, "Zoe is back in the finale... So is Mr. P..."

KD2011 says, "Mr. Denton are you in the finale a lot" 

Jamie Denton says, "Pretty good Lyle presence in the finale--great scene with Raines when Lyle confronts him about being "born-again""  

Lyles_girl says, "what about Emily?  will she be in it?"   

Jamie Denton says, "She is... Major Charles is in the finale as well..."

KD2011 says, "Will there be a cliff hanger?"

Jamie Denton says, "Pretty good cliffhanger"
Jamie Denton says, "Emily has a Lyle encounter..."

birichineria says, "Any Angelo?"

Jamie Denton says, "Yep--Angelo is there--it's a regular old home week"

catherine_ho_99 says, "So are you done shooting for this season?  Are you on break right now?"

Jamie Denton says, "We're starting the finale now"

Yoda_Lyle says, "Are there flashbacks in Season finale?" ... mc_california says, "Is it a two hour finale?"

Jamie Denton says, "Great flashbacks"

Jamie Denton says, "Not giving away too much am I Lois??"

IWriteForYou says, "Not for me *LOL*" 

dwchong says, "any film roles for you over the hiatus?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks for asking dwc--waiting to hear fate of the show"

wallflower_89 says, "Do they ever read our letters?" 

Jamie Denton says, "I read every letter I get"

Jamie Denton says, "Really great Catherine Parker thread in finale"

oubre1234 says, "will you let us know when they tell you if the show has been renewed?"

Jamie Denton says, "We'll have a pretty good idea about the show in a couple of weeks. A lot depended on what kind of lead-in we gave the Others last night" Jamie Denton says, "You'll know as soon as I do--I'll post" Jamie Denton says, "We are somewhat tied to the future of The Others"

missinglincoln says, ""Others" is a damned good new show.   I hope it works for both of you."

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks a lot Matt--I appreciate it"

lalacharly says, "Will there be a Pretender\Others crossover?" ... micauder says, "what's "others""

Jamie Denton says, "No crossover plans yet--waiting to renew or not"

JDsMoegirl says, "*sigh* I've got to go, gang"

Jamie Denton says, "Bye Sarah--best to your mom"

kwb60 says, "That scene with Lyle's assistant was tooo creepy! Loved it!" 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks kwb"

IWriteForYou says, "Assuming the show *is* renewed, do you think much of the writing will have to change because of the earlier time slot?"

Jamie Denton says, "The writing will/has changed a little for 8 p.m."

anni_51 says, "what episode is your favorite one, Jamie?"

Jamie Denton says, "Good question Anni--probably "Agent" or "Red Rock""

HDessart says, "Jamie, you do "shirt off/being tortured VERY well!!!" 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks HD--I think"

mc_california says, "Jamie - Great work. The look of fear and annoyance when Lyle realized Jarod had the upper hand was awesome."

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks MC"

b_twins_on_tour says, "<wondering what happened to the other tattoos...>"

Jamie Denton says, "Wanna see the other tattoos?"  

Achoo13 says, "sure" ... b_twins_on_tour says, "YES JAMIE" ... Lyles_girl says, "yes" ... IWriteForYou says, "(hides eyes)" ... dwchong says, "yeah" ...asha_ca says, "LOL jamie" ...

Jamie Denton says, "Sorry--couldn't resist quoting Lyle"

Chickydoodles says, "Jamie, will you be doing any talk shows soon?" 

Jamie Denton says, "No talk shows--there have been a few radio morning shows, but that's it--not enough Lyle to warrant it"

jojarod50 says, "You did such an excellent job - Jamie - Wow! Will be seeing you more in the upcomming episodes?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks jojarod--not much Lyle until the finale"

wallflower_89 says, "My mom just asked when you would be in another play.  BTW, my name is Melissa" ... 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks Melissa--we're trying to put together another of Mike Petty's plays for the fall possibly"

TravelGal99 says, "Jamie, looked like a  red bruise on the right side of your face near the end of the ep.  Did I miss something; what casued it?" 

Jamie Denton says, "The bruise was there from the limo scene on--you just couldn't see it in the bright light of the Jarod scene"

mc_california says, "Jamie - any new developments on In walked Monk- The movie, or are you waiting for renewal news?" 

Jamie Denton says, "IWM the movie is slated for Fall possibly -- depending on renewal"

spectra37 says, "I love your character, so intimidating and fascinating" 

Jamie Denton says, "Thanks spectra--good script for that last night"

size10w says, "fall release or fall filming?" 

Jamie Denton says, "Filming, Jeremy--"

TravelGal99 says, "Hafta look at the limo scene again. I did catch it when Jarod took the hood off, although it was more pronounced later on."

Jamie Denton says, "Not during the scene Marge--Jarod did it getting Lyle out of the car"

mc_california says, "Marge - I think it was not shown, but the briuse must have originated from Jarod getting Lyle from the limo to the basement"

Jamie Denton says, "Pretty good Lyle/Parker stuff in the finale" (note:  this is in response to a slew of  "what's going on between Miss Parker and Lyle" questions)

Riyadha says, "when is the finale?" 

Jamie Denton says, "The finale will be the last week of May sweeps"

Jamie Denton says, "They cut the thumb thing pretty close last night, didn't they?"

mc_california says, "yes! Putting on the glove without showing too much, nice job!"

Jamie Denton says, "Good story about the bathroom scene--"

HDessart says, "In the bathroom scene, I kept wondering how Lyle washed the glove! "

IWriteForYou says, "Tell!!!" southernbelle_180 says, "do tell" ... spectra37 says, "tell!" ... Yoda_Lyle says, "Tell us" ...

Jamie Denton says, "That entire scene was to be shot in the hall. I asked Rodney Charters (director) if I could be trying to escape to the bathroom"

faith_parker_70 says, "kewl idea!" ... spectra37 says, "That's a great idea" ... Yoda_Lyle says, "Hmmmm" ... mc_california says, "great idea!" ... THEPASSION81 says, "the scene worked, that's for sure!" ... Patrickphile says, "Wait for it...."HDessart says, "You had a GREAT idea, Jamie!"

Jamie Denton says, "Andrea said "well I'd just follow him in there""

IcyAndrea says, "yeah, it was a gooooooood one" ... spectra37 says, "oooh, perfect" ... anni_51 says, hahhaaaaaaa ... kar328 says, "MP definitely would" ... jojarod50 says, "lol" ...

HDessart says, "WONDERFUL!!!" ... anni_51 says, "I can't beleive she stayed in there" ... b_twins_on_tour says, "must use a better bathroom than Broots"

Jamie Denton says, "The censors from the network jumped in and said I couldn't unzip until Andrea was directly behind me"

southernbelle_180 says, "hmmm you and Andrea seem to thing along the same wavelength" ... missinglincoln says, "Ummmm..........how do you zip up with only one thumb? The possibilities could be quite "tragic"" ...kar328 says, "LOL" ... HDessart says, "Hi IS her brother!" ... mc_california says, "lol" ... Pax_2735 says, "LOL Jamie" ... anni_51 says, "thats her" ... b_twins_on_tour says, "you REALLY unzipped???" ... SabrielX says, "LOL"

E_Wit says, "censors are no fun" ... Chickydoodles says, "it's all in the timing" ... TravelGal99 says, "Forgive me but I have to say it:  A quick zip."

IWriteForYou says, "Geeze!" ... Chickydoodles says, "this conversation has gone down the toilet if you ask me" ... faith_parker_70 says, "lol - as if we don't hear it daily in real life" ... dwchong says, "thought all in the family took care of that prejudice?" ... E_Wit says, "I think that would border on oversharing"... wallflower_89 says, "LOL"
