I never thought he was pretending to be transplanted local. His backstory is (I believe) that he left Texas to get away from being compared to his dad. He hasn't been in Vegas that long - hell, I've known people who've lived in my state for 20 years and still pronounce it differently than I do. Big whoop. I'm not going to waste time "hating" an aspect of a fictional character because of it, so I'm not sure why on earth we keep coming back to the way Nick says Nevada.Originally Posted by oddballgeek
Maybe..just maybe...the ACTOR can't manage to get the accent "right" to pronounce it the way you want. Maybe it has nothing to do with the character and everything to do with the actor and his particular speech patterns.
I think we "get it" by now that you don't like Nick and don't like the way he pronounces your state. Okay then. I agree Warrick is sexy too, as is Greg, the sort of Asian-looking lab guy and if I swung that way, Catherine. The show is full of eye candy, enough that you don't have to like what anyone else likes, regardless of his po-tay-to, poh-tah-to bent.
I have no idea why this whole thing is annoying me right now, but since it is, I'm outta here for a while. I think I have some pics of Nick's butt in jeans that might make me feel better.
