    Is that Brad Bell and Heather Tom making cameos on RHOBH? Could they be shooting an episode of B&B in Amsterdam?

    John Martin as Bill and Jamie Lynn Bauer as Laura should be added to Day's roster of recurring players. The hospital can always use another doctor (especially a Horton). We are packing a true patriarch figure too. John also had so much chemistry with Lauren Koslow. Imagine a Stephano/ Bill feud for her heart.

    I don't consider Julie and doug a return, they are on consistently.

    I would hope DAYS is smart enough to write Bo a final death storyline. There are so many characters on the canvas that will be effected. Also, I am all for shuffling up the super-couples.

    My mind went straight to Billy Worlock.

    Always sad to hear when kids are involved.

    One more just for fun, for this actual 2000-2001 Crystal Ball Photo...

    Row 4 (L to R): J. Eddie Peck as the very handsome and beadable Dr. Joseph "call me Jake" Martin; Cameron Mathison as the not yet the plague of Pine Valley John Ryan Aloysius Curry Lavery; the underrated and frankly stunning Esta TerBlanche as spoiled princess with no castle Gillian Eugenia Maria Andrassy Lavery; Walt Willey as playing a day player with no romantic interest or storyline at the time Jackson Montgomery; Marj Dusay in the deliciously malicious role of Vanessa Bennett Cortlandt; John Callahan as former heart-throb Edmund Gresham Grey (seriously, Eva should have told the once speciman of a man had to do was hit the gym from time to time); and Josh Duhamel in his all-to-short of a run as conman in leather Leo duPres

    Row 3 (L to R): Abigail Spencer in the unmemorable role of Pigeon Hallow's Becca Tyree, Vincent Irizararry as the charming and oh-so-bad Dr. David Hawyard, Jill Larson as the always enjoyable Opal Cortlandt, Marcy Walker as the wasted potential at every turn Liza Colby, Michael Nader as high-as-a-kite in this photo Dimitiri Marick, the Count Andrassy; Finola Hughes as counting the days until I get written out Dr. Alexandra Devane Marick, Rebecca Budig as claws-in Greenlee Smythe soon to be duPres, and Sara Hugh as Tina "what's her face" Harding

    Row 2 (L to R): Cady McClain as poodle-haired Dixie Cooney Martin, Michael E. Knight as still the man of every woman's dream Thaddeus James Gardner Martin, David Canary as the always perfect Adam Chandler, Kelly Ripa as feisty and always drunk Hayley Vaughan Santos, and Mark Consuelos as happy to no longer be an exotic dancer Mateo Santos.

    Row 1 (L to R): Now legal eagle Zachary Kady (I saw him at the Georgetown Law Center all the time) as one-time cutie James "Jamie" Edward Martin, Julia Barr as the thank goodness she returned Brooke English, James Mitchell as the always handsome Palmer Cortlandt, Ruth Warrick in an all too rare 2000's appearence as Phoebe English Wallingford, the exquisite Susan Lucci as the even more perfect Erica Kane, Eileen Herlie as town sage Myrtle Lum Fargate, Ray MacDonnell as the only man who still makes house calls Dr. Joseph "Joe" Martin, Sr.; and Eden Riegel as the Bianca Christine Montgomery, Pine Valley's every woman

    I know that I rarely post nowadays, but I was feeling nostalgic today. I saw teh question above about naming the actors in a version of this group photo. I figured that I would weigh in for old-times sake.

    Row 1 (L to R): Richard Van Vleet as the dreamy but oh-so-boring Dr. Charles "Chuck" Tyler, III; Nicholas Benedict as the rough-around-the-edges version of town hero Phillip "Phil" Brent; the incomporable and much missed Ruth Warrick as then Phoebe English Tyler (now wearing the wig look she would sport going forward); Peter White as the best brother in the world Lincoln "Linc" Tyler; and Dan Hamilton as the smarmy Hal Short (aka Hal Shea, Kitty's vagabond of a first husband.

    Row 2 (L to R): Glorified day-player Pat Dixon as Caroline Grant, RN; Stephanie Braxton (now also known as Mrs. Dan Hamilton) as one of the better portrayed Tara Martin Brent; Paul Gleason as Dr. David Thornton (the only man who dared be an asshold to Ms. Warrick, in real-life and not just reel-life), the beautiful Fra Heflin as murderess Mona Kane; and John Danelle as karate master turned MD, Dr. Frank Grant.

    Row 3 (L to R): Bill Mooney as the dreamy legal eagle Paul Martin; Eileen Letchworth as the memorable and maligned Margo Flax (then Martin); Llarry Keith as oh-so-scrappy Nicky Davis, Ray MacDonnell as handsome Pine Valley pillar Dr. Joseph "Joe" Martin, sr.; Kay Campbell out of retirement as the 3rd Kate Martin; and Paulette Breen as drug-addict Claudette Flax Montgomery.

    Row 4 (L to R): Judith Barcroft as daytime's last debutante Anne Tyler; Mary Fickett as my favourite Ruth Brent Martin, RN; Francesca James as dancer from the wrong side of the tracks Kitty Shea Tyler; and.... I can never tell who this is, probably somone is forgettable day player role.

    It's actually kind of sad how after all these years later, I could still name these actors and characters sans reference.

    Is anyone else absolutley falling in love with Ryan Carnes as Lucas? What happened to the generic pretty boy from 2006 who was but a blip on the GH canvas? He grew up into an awesome actor who is giving a wonderful portrayal as a young man struggling through another crisis of identity. Wow, I am slowly falling in love this this character.

    Charlton wanted to pick a fight with Kyle, and she walked right into her trap. Had Kyle said nothing about her religion or anti-semitism, it would have been Charlton who left egg on her face. Instead, Kyle looked equally foolish.

    That's why we need Faye. Fays is calculating and cunning, and would not hav made such a sloppy mistake when on the attack.

    What is that background photo from? I feel like I am missing a frame a reference here.

    That scene still makes me laugh so much!

    I believe that one of the Anne Tyler recasts on All My Children was a kiss and switch as well.

  12. AMCHistory added a post in a topic Michael B. Jordan on Cover of Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue   


    Agreed, Cheap. I loved Micah. The most unecessary recast, and frankly downgrade, was when Micah was dumped for model boy Justin Bruening. What makes it sadder is that really in the AMC cannon, when people refer to Jamie, they are most likely to use photos of Bruening as the reference.

    MBJ defintley had the most potential, and I think that's why he had the lasting power that the others did not. He was also lucky to have actually responded and grew as a result of the tuteldge of Darnell Williams. He was the onset acting coach, hired to whip the youngn's into shapre. Dadarrio and Seyfried were still green when they left, but Jordan defintly started showing that he had the chops to become an actor.

    It also helped that MBJ was in a storyline with the vets and more seasoned actors (Walt Willey, Susan Lucci, Alicia Minshew) versus the other teens who wer emore in their own circle with each other. Their scenes became fodder for the fast-forward button.

    It looks like Michael just missed the cover fold. I have not seen the actual magazine yet, but judging by the logo and spacing, he is on the inside cover.

    That whole "class" of AMC Teens seem to have done pretty well. Michael and Amanda Seyfried (ex-Joni) are definitley the stand-outs. Alexandra Daddadarrio (ex-Laurie) and Micah Alberti (ex-Jamie) have had Primetime success. The funny part was just how marganalised so many of them were storyline wise throughout their run.

    I spoke to Michael years ago after leaving AMC to set-up an interview. He was really happy to do it. Our initial conversations made it sound like he was very fond of his time at AMC even with the dissapointing goodbye.

    Haha! I regret not moving to NYC sooner when I was more engrossed in soaps. I've had a fun time with random run-ins ever since.

    This was right before Robin premiered onscreen. He clued me in to tune in and watch for the surprise. He still lives in NYC and writes remotely. Frank does live in LA now. He was very nice, and very willing to chat. In fact, I had to to break off the convo as I was late for a conference call. It was a real treat, and he has been cordial since.
