DAYS Casting Scoop!

Looks like the ax is already falling at DAYS, where rumors of cast cuts abound. Kristen Renton (Morgan) has been pink-slipped and the character will move to Chicago. Insiders whisper that another actress has also been let go, and a beloved vet is on the bubble.

Well, so much for Morgan/Philip! They had potential at the start but they quickly went downhill.

I'm guessing the gal who plays Melanie. wub.gif sad.gif

I think it's Bryan Datillo.

I was thinking the same thing about the girl who played Melanie - Molly Burnett. I really like her so far and I hope she is kept around for a little longer. But with Roscoe Born being shipped off and what appeared to be setting a story up for Nicole to have had a child with Trent I worry for her.

Not a huge loss...

I wonder who the "vet" is that's supposedly being let go...

I guess this is part of DAYS' renewal, a lot of people are going to be fired or put on recurring.

Well since Thaao and Renee Jones have been fired like 20 times in the past couple of years, it would be a good bet to pick them. LOL

If Lauren Koslow gets fired Brad Bell has the A OK to can Lesley Anne Down and hire LK to return as Margo. B&B needs her.

I'd much prefer the axing for the former rather than the latter.

Eh, while Morgan was definitely more interesting then Chelsea or Stephanie could ever be, I don't mind that she's leaving(though I'll miss her sexy southern accent! wub.gif). Hopefully the vet leaving is Byan Datilo(terrible actor, even worse character IMO).

Oh [!@#$%^&*]. Bad move, Days.

Gee, I wonder how long before the broken-up couples are magically put back together again??

I bet the other actress is Molly Burnett(Melanie) and that the vet is either Lauren Koslow(Kate), Josh Taylor(Roman), James Reynolds(Abe) or Joe Mascolo(Stefano), again.

If Corday wants to cut a vet who won't have any impact on the canvas then he should definitely cut Josh Taylor. That poor guy has been dead weight since he first came on as Roman back in the 90s...it isn't that Josh is a bad actor, he was great on Y&R, but he's never, ever been given anything to play on DAYS.

I doubt it's Renee, she's got the autism storyline that is very relevant right now, plus she's a talent and the lone African American woman on the show, Corday can't afford to alienate a single viewer.

If the budget's getting really slashed I could see the following:

FIRED
Bryan Dattillo
Lauren Koslow (get your agent to phone up B&B and come home as Margo Lynley! Hell make a return to Y&R as Lindsey Wells Abbott! Get back in the Bell fold Lauren, it's where you belong!)
Thaoo Penghlis
Josh Taylor

Bumped to Recurring
Peggy McKay
Suzanne Rogers
James Reynolds
Joe Mascolo

Good. The southern belle wasn't needed.

I wouldn't mind if Kate was written off. Josh Taylor is probably working for pennies, or at least enough to pay for his monthly botox shots.

if DAYS is trying to save money it's got to be more of the actress/vets who have been around longer--a newbe's pay as you work salery isn't where the money is to be found.

That sucks. she was very natural fit witht he cast and the char worked wonder on philip.

If bryan is the vet to go i bet he winds up on GH.

I dont think its Joe M. because theys aid this return wasnt long term, i think.

Id say the other option are Josh T and Lauren K. Both can go.

My guess for beloved vet would be Josh Taylor. Roman has no storyline to speak of and is expendable.

It always surprised me that Morgan survived past the sorority house days. The actress is good, but the character is unnecessary in my opinion. I have no idea who the vet on the bubble is. I hope s/he stays on the bubble and does not get canned. I like the fact that DOOL uses a mix of characters.
