Nor am I.

Didn't they originally want to call the lead character Jeffrey Archer... until they found out he was a UK politician?

I'm not either. However, I see Goji like 15 times. That guy is just an attention whore

I've always heard Jackson Archer. There was a poster here with that name for awhile.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I think the change was rather quick once UK fans started pointing out the reference. Possibly it went very quickly to Jackson.

IMDB, of course, is a very poor source of information, but it does seem to confirm it...

The Guardian agrees.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I guess they thought "better safe than sorry". After all, not everyone has as little problems with an ill-chosen name as Johnny Depp (Depp is the German word for halfwit / idiot)

Re: Any old timers still around?

I actually liked "Jackson Archer" much better than Jonathan at first but as the first season of the show progressed I got used to the more white-bread first name for Scott's character.

Well duh

Right now in fact. Very much enjoying the mulled wine at the German markets.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. Lots of people in the thread that I grew quite fond of back in the day. (Not you Shameless.)

I'm on facebook if people want to keep up with my rather dull/drunken life.

Thanks for letting me know this was here, rhubarbadendron
