HELP RE-CAST ROLE!

IPB Image

The Blog is looking to re-cast the role of Alan Harris, previously played by Paul Kersey. The role is set to make a return sometime this summer and will interact heavily with Austin, Carrie, Sami, Lucas, Will, and Cassie. Alan Harris was a young man in love with Carrie Brady and turned to Sami when he couldn't have her. Later, he ended up raping Sami, who in turn shot Alan in the groin, maming him. The role is set to make a two to three month return and shake up everyone's life.

Scott Holiroyd (ex-Paul, ATWT) would be a good pick for Alan. When I was thinking about bringing Alan back to my show, that's who I was goign to pick.

I want to keep James Scott (E.J.) open in case I want to bring on the character of E.J. too. :)

Who else is there?

Damn KR you and me

always end up doing the

same stuff :lol: . It was a surprise

but I am bringing him back in

mine too. That is who has been

stalking Carrie and Sami in my fan

fic.

I plan to just use Paul Kersey but I

do like the Scott Holroyd idea myself.

These are good ideas. I will definitely pick one of the ones you guys suggest. Maybe I'll get a list and you guys can vote. :lol:

Phoenix, Alan will be in and out of mine in a snap. :) I think, anyway. That's the plan.

I don't know how long

Alan will be in mine. Probably

awhile because I am cutting a huge

chunk of the cast next week when

my fan fic returns. He will play

a huge part in my plans though.

Here's Scott at Blondie's Sports Bar in Manhattan at an event. Besides being very talented, he was just a lot of fun!

Off Topic: From AWHP:

January 20, 2006

L. Virginia Browne tells the AWHP:

“L. Virginia Browne was headwriter from 11/80 to 11/82. [With a period where Corrine Jacker filled in as temporary writer during the writer's strike, using Browne's bible] I was replaced by Bob Soderberg in 11/82. Even though I had already left to do Guiding Light with Doug Marland in late 81 or early 82 (can't recall) AW continued to use my story lines & bible and so continued my headwriting credit until 11/82.

 

"Christopher Schemering wrote a book called the "Soap Opera Encyclopedia" and, in it, he says that I took over Guiding Light and it then went into a "slump." I was pretty darned surprised as, within four months of becoming head writer, I had raised the ratings by two full points and our position from 8th to 3rd. In fact, the folks at P&G filled my office with flowers to congratulate me. Ken Fitts (a P&G exec) said he hoped we'd be working together for years. The VERY NEXT DAY, Allen Potter, the executive producer, announced he was leaving to be replaced by Gail Kobe and she fired me -- the very next day after receiving all those flowers and wishes for years and years of working together. And then they continued to use my bible for 9 more months and kept my name on the credits as headwriter for that long.

 

"That story, i.e. the flowers and the firing the next day, has become part of soap folklore. I've even had individuals tell it to me but ascribe it to various different writers. I sent Chris a note (along with copies of the network ratings sheets) and he wrote back and apologized, saying he would update and correct the info in his revised edition. Sadly, Chris then suddenly passed away and never did make the revision, so that mis-information stands in what is considered by many to be a very reliable book.

 

"As for AW, I was supposed to write Texas and was shifted, at the very last minute, to AW, which I had never once seen before being handed the assignment. I spent a week-end in a NYC hotel watching old tapes (those old, huge Beta tapes, I think), boxes of them, to catch up. And, as I posed your question to my former assistant head writer Linda Hamner (with whom I still am friends and still write with from time to time), she reminded me of one story. I guess AW must have gotten a great deal on a crate of baby-crap colored brown mugs. And, as a result, they installed them in EVERY kitchen. Ada had them; so did Mac and Rachel. When Jamie married Cecile, they had them. Even Joey and Sandy had them in their decidedly down-scale apt. You could never do a "cup-to-cup" scene cut (made famous by Gloria Monty of GH) because everyone had the very same cups. Years later I tuned in and there they were, those samed cursed mugs. I swear, they must have bought a thousand.

 

"I've kept up with some of the folks from AW. Warren Burton (Jason) has carved out a great career doing voices for video games. Richard Bekins (Jamie) is much in demand on Broadway (He was in "Love, Valor, Compassion" the year it won the Tony) and regional theater as well as regular and frequent performances in the "Law and Order" shows. I ran into Chris Rich a few weeks ago at the mall and met his new wife and twin babies, as well as his daughter with Nancy Frangione (the second Cecile). He's doing well on "Reba," as you probably know. James Horan (Denny) lives nearby and produces local theater as well as acts in them. For a bit of trivia, in the film "Gods and Generals," Richard Bekins, James Horan and Warren Burton all had roles.

"And, again, great work on your site. I know the Soap Net cable network is running AW (or will be soon) but decided to start in 1987 which I think is doing the show a great disservice as it will miss all the wonderful shows written by Harding LeMay, whom I believe was the show's best writer ever.

"Take care, Virginia."

 

Both of Christopher Schemering's books, the 1987 edition of Soap Opera Encyclopedia (not the 1985 one) and his 50th Anniversary Guiding Light are both generally speaking very reliable books. It's a terrible shame that he died so young.
