  1. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Pairing Mike Bauer with Alexandra Spaulding during the early eighties and having years worth of story is a typical post on this forum. It makes sense given Mike's history with the Spauldings. Mike's daughter, Hope, was married to Alan Spaulding and gave birth to Alan Michael Spaulding. In hindsight, what would it be like when Mike never left Springfield and finally marries Alexandra, and during the nineties, they have a conflict due to Mike siding with his grandson, Alan Michael Spaulding, over Alexandra making NIck (Alexandra's son) Spaulding Enterprises President instead of Alan Michael. Roger Thorpe could be a thorn in Mike and Alexandra's side. Hope could come back as an obstacle, disapproving Alexandra as a stepmother. If Elvera Roussel were unavailable, then Robin Mattson or even Julia Barr would have been suitable recasts. One of the posts I came across was Ross and Blake breaking up, and Ross marrying Hope, becoming a tentpole couple alongside Alexandra and Mike. Mike and Ross would have their law firm in town. I could also see Fletcher and Hope or Buzz and Hope. As for Blake, I would say pair her up with Frank Cooper.
  2. They Almost Became

    Jeanne Cooper would have been too young for Alice. Addie? Definitely!
  3. They Almost Became

    In hindsight, the way DOOL SORAS-ed Julie's son (twenties during the seventies) and grandson (twenties during the eighties), it would have made sense to have Jeanne Cooper play Julie. Then again, the writers would have to retcon her history by making Julie, Tom and Alice's daughter, rather than their eldest grandchild. Since Julie's parents, Addie and Ben Olson, were written off the show decades ago. The show could have written Addie and Julie being rival sisters over Doug Williams, and Julie's younger brother, Steve Olson, could have been her nephew.
  4. Since GH has let William DeVry let go, DOOL should pick him up as David Banning. Even though David is dead from a motorcycle accident, TPTB can come up with ways to resurrect the dead. After all, it's soaps.
  5. Casting Couch: GH's Jeff Webber

    Jerry Ver Dorn, Hunt Block, Michael Swan, and Richard Chamberlain
  6. Casting Couch: GH: Liz's Mom

    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.
  7. Guiding Light discussion thread

    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.
  8. Another World

    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.

  10. Did Y&R ever mention in early episodes what different businesses in which Prentiss was involved?
  11. Dynasty: Discussion Thread

    I read that Deidre Hall and the late Elizabeth Montgomery were also considered for the Krystle role.
  12. Dynasty: Discussion Thread

    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.
  13. Days Character Dies

    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.
  14. They Almost Became

    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.
  15. They Almost Became

    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).
