    Wait, you're intentionally calling him Jean-Pierre instead of Jules-Pierre?

    He assuming an overly dramatic French affect because of the way the actor really leans into it also.

    Btw, I know this will do no good... But I gotta try. A.Ron, when 'affect' is used with this meaning, it pretty much rhymes with Ben Affleck(t) 

    Seemed on topic, oh well!

    It all started with this little-known captain, Jean-Luc Picard.

    I mean, that part I get. I don't know if, like @JaimieT suggested, it's because of a habit of saying "Jean-Luc" that he's turned "Jules-Pierre" into "Jean-Pierre". I kind of just assumed it was base-level name-butchering, and since A.Ron had already said it once that way, it got stuck that way in his brain.

    I think A.Ron said on the cast... it's because the actor really emphasized the French more than any of us had been doing this far. It was astonishing. Also I suspect it's the famous Chinese name "Mao" (Mao Zedong) at the end of all that French, that makes it more funny.

    And yeah, Jean-Luc would fluctuate in Frenchness throughout Star Trek. 

    I don't know why Jules-Pierre pronounces Julie so American. Maybe an insight into their parting of ways?

    The actor's real name is also kind of like that, he's called François Chau.
    I can just imagine A.Ron angrily yelling François!!!

  • I saw Chau first in the wing commander games, nice to see him getting more work

    Goddammit. I wish I'd known this before we recorded this week. Now I have to remember for next week.

    And Mao was Vagabond in Wing Commander?! HOLY SHIT! World's colliding...

  • It just occurred to me that Jules-Pierre named his daughter after himself.

    Very different show, but Khan from King of the Hill did that as well (Connie).
