And what if Jamie WAS a "bottle blond?" Would that still be an affront to casting the "typical" NYC Jewish man in the role?
(On the serious side, I know a number of black Jews. A handful of those are members of the same family, and they do indeed use Yiddish words and talk about the ghetto their great grandmother emigrated from.)
I have a very talented black college student at the moment, who is also currently a bottle blond (at least on the top). He might actually make a great Jamie in a decade or so...:-)
