Subject: I saw the original interview and I think it was tongue-in-cheek (inside)
In reply to: bt 's message, "NEW JAG DVD'S" on 19:39:29 02/23/07 Fri

Part of it might have been feeling bad for the time he spent from his family. However the whole tone of that interview was very much teasing. DJE was grinning a lot and joking around. It could have just been a comment made in jest to a question like, "Think you've spent enough time as a lawyer?" or something else directed in his longevity. Since they couldn't even show us the clip in context, only in three previews and then cut it from the actual interview, I doubt it's anything to take very seriously.

[> I'm with you bt on this one. I'm so tired of the excuses made for what comes out of that mans mouth. This isn't the first arrogant and slap in the face comment he's made. This comment "If I died right now I'd have wasted a 1/4 of my life on Jag", has nothing to do at all with him not spending enough time with his family. That's is such bull and just an excuse. If he wanted to spend more time with his family all he had to do was bring his daughter to the set with him like most other actor/actress parents do. And what the he**, his wife worked on the show with him. -- sick of dje's arrogant remarks..., 18:08:37 02/25/07 Sun

[> [> I've not heard one sarcastic remark like his come from any of the other cast members of Jag, only him. I think he is still smarting b/c Bellisario wouldn't resign him. The fact is he's been making smart a** and negative and untrue comments ever since he left the show. And the minimal amount of work he's gotten since Jag speaks for itself as well. He keeps this up and no one with want to hire him in the future. -- no longer a fan of dje..., 18:17:10 02/25/07 Sun

[> [> [> If it was meant honestly, than I'd be pretty mad too. But on the clip he honestly doesn't look sarcastic or bitter. It really does look like he's just joking around. And he was teasing quite a bit during the interview... -- Meg, 18:46:55 02/25/07 Sun

There was at least three cases where he was asked a question and he'd make a joking comment that if it was serious, would have been bad, but you can see from his grin that he wasn't. At one point both him and the interviewer were kidding about how he always picks up the Canadian accent when he comes home on vacation.

There was also a lot of kidding about how he's back on a legal show and it's like that's all he gets to play. At one point he rolled his eyes and said, "Yeah, and don't forget Street Legal." And then he grinned. I'm thinking the quote in question came on the tail of that.

I could be wrong. But I think if he was really serious, the interview would have made more about it and showed more in relation to that. Considering that they couldn't even be bothered to show us the actual question that preceded the comment or give us anything else but that quote - and only showed that in a preview, I would really take it with a grain of salt.

[> [> [> [> Janine: I don't know where you got that I hang out at the CB board, or that I am a CB hater. I am a JAG fan, and I like DJE,CB and all of the cast ('cept Mic...sorry 'bout that). I have never, nor will I ever say anything hateful about Catherine. She is a fine actress, and seems to be a genuine person. -- Gree, 19:12:15 02/27/07 Tue

[> [> The whole wanting to spend more time stuff is BS IMHO. He's said that in relation to his part on Close to Home, that he took it because the part was smaller and he wanted to spend more time with the family. If that's the case, why did he try to get a one hour pilot off the ground last summer? If that show had been picked up, he would have been spending at least as much time on the set working on the new show as he did on JAG. -- Cindy, 12:59:57 02/26/07 Mon
