  1. Jerry Ver Dorn, Hunt Block, Michael Swan, and Richard Chamberlain
  2. James DePaiva is too young for Jeff Webber. DePaiva is better suited as Jimmy Lee Holt, the long lost Quartermaine son of Edward and his mistress, Beatrice LeSeur or as a potential Ned recast if Wally Kurth decides to return to DOOL permanently. Kale Browne as Jeff Webber would make sense. He and Leslie Charleson (Monica) would work well together, and the two would be believable as ex-spouses and ex-colleagues. Anna Stuart as Liz and Sarah's mom is a possibility.
  3. Excessive SORAS hurt GL in the long run. In hindsight, Don Stewart and Mart Hulswit should have been older Bauer cousins, and Tom O'Rourke and Jerry Ver Dorn should have been Justin and Ross Bauer, Bill and Bert's sons, instead of Marlers.
  4. Here are some of the suggestions the show could have used some legacy AW characters: When Ada and her daughter, Rachel, were introduced, add in a son Adam, a young boy. In the following decade, the 1970s, Adam could have been used in storylines originally written for the SORAS-ed Jamie. Rachel could be the big sister instead of the mother. Instead of SORAS-ing Rachel's son, Jamie, in the seventies, at least give Jamie's late seventies-mid eighties stories, to Rachel's brother, Adam, and keep Jamie a child. SORAS Jamie in the eighties by giving Matthew Cory's stories to Jamie. That way Rachel remains viable and youthful instead of being bumped up an age bracket. Amanda, born in 1979, should have been SORAS-ed during the nineties. Amanda Cory could have taken Maggie Cory's storylines. Ricky Matthews could have returned to Bay City as a young adult, staying with his grandmother, Liz, and getting involved with Josie Watts much to Liz's chagrin. Dr. Russ Matthews could have returned as a world-famous physician who becomes the new Chairman of Bay City General Hospital after buying the facility through his Russell Matthews Foundation (similar to the Harper Avery Foundation) and become a power player in Bay City. Dennis Carrington Wheeler, Iris' son, could have taken over Jamie Frame's mid-eighties/early nineties stories. Instead, Dennis would follow in Grandpa Mac and Mama Iris' footsteps and become a Cory Publishing executive with his real passion for seeking adventure in dangerous places as a journalist. Or bring back Dr. Rick Hathaway in the form of Laurence Lau in 1986 to play out Jamie's eighties and nineties stories. To prolong the show, Matthew Cory along with his nephew Alex could have to make up the new teen set of the millennium.
  5. Here are some of the suggestions some legacy AW characters could have been used: When Ada and her daughter, Rachel, were introduced, add in a son Adam, who could have been used later. Instead of SORAS-ing Rachel's son, Jamie, in the seventies, at least give Jamie's late seventies-mid eighties stories, to Rachel's brother, Adam, and keep Jamie a child. SORAS Jamie in the eighties by giving Matthew Cory's stories to Jamie. That Rachel remain viable and youthful instead of being bumped up an age bracket.

  6. Did Y&R ever mention in early episodes what different businesses in which Prentiss was involved?
  7. I read that Deidre Hall and the late Elizabeth Montgomery were also considered for the Krystle role.
  8. The casting of Grant Show (ex-Rick, RH; ex-Jake, MP) in the Blake Carrington role in the upcoming Dynasty reboot was an error. The reason is Grant Show is too young. Actors like Michael Douglas, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Richard Gere, Gregory Harrison, Bruce Boxleitner, Anthony Hopkins, Tommy Lee Jones, and other matured actors would have been suitable choices for the esteemed Carrington family patriarch.
  9. David Banning should have been kept alive. There are plenty of age appropriate actors such as Laurence Lau, Grant Aleksander, Bradley Cole, James Hyde, Todd McKee, MIchael E. Knight, and so on who could have played the role. They look young enough on screen to be Julie's son, granted Julie was a teen mom. David Banning could have a been a 50 something year young businessman overseeing Julie's business interests overseas, even though he and Julie haven't spent time together for decades, which would have played into mother and son keeping constant tabs via phone and social media.
  10. If fans could buy Rick Hearst as Grant Aleksander's son, then yes have RH reprise his Scotty Banning role (DAYS). It's all subjective. A younger actor like Dylan Bruce could be put in the Scotty Banning slot. RH could have worked as a Morgan Winthrop recast (AW), He and Grayson McCouch do not look that much different.
  11. Randolph Mantooth read for OLTL's Clint as well. I noticed the resemblance Randolph Mantooth and Patrick Duffy had when they acted out a scene on the old Dallas. Does anyone agree that Randolph Mantooth would have been a good Bobby Ewing recast when Patrick Duffy left after the 1984-85 season and the show decided to recast? When Dallas decided to bring back Jock after Jim Davis' 1981 death, does anyone agree that the Wes Parmalee/Jock Ewing story should have started then and given to Lorne Greene instead of Steve Forrest. And have Rebecca Wentworth fall in love with Wes/Jock, creating the Jock/Rebecca/Ellie/Clayton quadrangle. Steve Kanaly as Clint Buchanan (OLTL) would have been interesting. Jerry Ver Dorn would be a good Jeff Webber recast (GH) or Bill Horton recast (DAYS). Grant Aleksander would be a good David Banning recast (DAYS). Martin Sheen and William Devane were rumored to have tested for Cliff Barnes on Dallas. Nick Benedict as Lance Prentiss. That's interesting. Nick Benedict and David Canary were rumored to have tested for Roman Brady (DAYS) in 1980. Christian LeBlanc tested for Tad Martin (AMC).
  12. When Steve Kanaly was asked to come in to read for Dallas, the casting directors told him he was right for the parts of J.R. Ewing, Bobby Ewing, Ray Krebbs, and Cliff Barnes. Steve chose Ray, and the rest of history. Josh Taylor (Roman, DAYS), Wayne Northrop (ex-Roman, DAYS), and Martin Kove were rumored to be candidates for Ray. David Selby (ex-Richard, Falcon Crest) was rumored to have auditioned for the Gary Ewing role. David Ackroyd was initially hired and cast as Gary before Ted Shackelford took over. Ken Kercheval wanted to play Ray instead of Cliff, in which he would be hired to play. Tom Selleck, Robert Urich, Josh Taylor, Wayne Northrop, Steve Kanaly, and Michael Nader (ex-Dimitri, AMC) were rumored to be candidates for Bobby. Robert Foxworth (ex-Chase, Falcon Crest) turned down the role of J.R. Robert Culp was rumored to be considered for J.R. Robert Colbert (ex-Stuart, Y&R), Phil Carey (ex-Asa, OLTL), and Rory Calhoun (ex-Judson, CAPITOL) were rumored to be candidates for Jock.
  13. Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla, Y&R) is rumored to have expressed an interest in playing Dr. Valerie Grant on DOOL before they cast Vanessa Williams from Melrose Place for the part. Before Sam Behrens and Lesley-Anne Down was cast as Gregory and Olivia Richards on Sunset Beach, Perry King and Emma Samms were rumored to be in consideration for those parts. George Reinholt (ex-Steve, AW; ex-Tony, OLTL) was rumored to have been considered to play iconic soap roles. Those alleged roles include Frank Ryan (after Reinholt's AW firing), Alan Quartermaine, Roman Brady, Grandpa Shawn Brady (during the nineties when Frank Parker was off the show and before Frank McLean briefly played the role), and Stefano DiMera (during the nineties before Joe Mascolo returned).
  14. As you know, the Bauers, as in most soap characters in the past, have been rapidly aged before their time. Mike was too old to be the son of Bill and Bert, but Bill's sister, Meta, married a much older man, Dr. Bruce Banning, who was old enough to have a son Mike Bauer's age. Getting back to AW, John was in a car accident that left him temporarily paralyzed. Since he couldn't perform at his usual level as a lawyer and a husband, Mike Bauer was brought in to help with John's caseload and to get involved with both Pat and Lee. I just threw the pregnancy and paternity as a what if to preserve the soap's longevity.
  15. Here's an idea how the Mike Bauer (now Banning, Meta's stepson) could have been used on AW during the sixties. Mike Banning and his young daughter, Hope, come to Bay City following the death of Mike's wife, Julie (Hope's mother). Mike comes to work for John Randolph at his law firm and meets his young wife, Pat Matthews Randolph, and adult daughter from a previous marriage, Lee. Mike gets involved with both women. Pat and Lee both become pregnant. Pat would give birth to a girl, Marianne, who would be passed off as John's. Mike, unaware that he has fathered Pat's baby, is focused on doing the right thing and marrying the pregnant Lee to give their son, Michael (named after Mike of course), a name. John recovers and welcomes what he thinks is his daughter, Marianne, while Mike and Lee leave town with Hope and young Michael. Lee dies off-screen before Mike and Hope return to Springfield. Michael attends military school. In the early eighties, Marianne, who is a Banning, and learns the truth of her biology following the death of John and becomes a rebellious adolescent. She rebels against her family by sleeping with Rachel's son, Jamie, who would be SORAS to 14 around the same time. It is done to preserve the character of Rachel who would be in her early-to-mid thirties by then. Michael Banning returns to Bay City in the early eighties as an All-American teenager who joins the Bay City teen set with Jamie and Marianne. Michael's secret is that he is gay and falls in love with Jamie, who is unaware of MIchael's intentions since he is involved with Marianne. The 1970s Michael Randolph (Lionel Johnston) stories could go to Dennis Carrington Wheeler, who would work for his grandfather, Mac Cory as a lawyer fresh out of law school.
