Days: Did You Know??

Recommended Posts

Just one other tidbit. Kevin Costner was in the running or auditioned to play Jake Kositchek on Days back in the 80's. The role ultimately went to Jack Coleman and he became the infamous Salem Strangler.

I knew that about Kale.

If I remember correctly it was when Drake Hogestyn was cast as Roman. Also I remember reading that Robert S. Woods of OLTL was considered for the role as well.

I think that Robert S. Woods would have been an interesting choice. Of course Drake is better looking IMO than Robert but Robert can act.

    • Just started reading Grillo-Marxuach’s statement and already am taken aback by the use of portmanteau of Lindelof and Cause’s names. Were they really called “Dalton”? Hopefully my local library will get the book in some form (I made a request for an audiobook and an ebook) because this sounds like an interesting read.
    • There's a lot of narrative rewriting about Lost because it ticks many of the boxes of what was supposed to be - in terms of diversity, and expansion of network television mindsets - but at the time, the show mostly got buzz in that first season. The second and third seasons got a ton of negative response (especially the third) and even when things stabilized after that, there was a great deal of mockery of the navel-gazing "mystery box" world to help hide that there were no clear plans in place.  Even at the time I remember fans pointing out what hacks Lindelof and Cuse were. That's true for fans and producers in general, but that label has stuck, deservedly so. I always got bad vibes off the show, as well as Desperate Housewives, and consider both to be classic examples of narrative and media hype mattering more than the product itself. I'm sorry to hear just how ugly the atmosphere was backstage at Lost, but I can't say I'm surprised. It's one of those shows where the vileness bled onto the screen, especially in the deaths of those (mostly non-white) who were deemed unworthy.
    • Wow, such an invaluable information, I hope I get this for OLTL one day, but love reading in such detail the history of GH. Thank you!
    • Javier Grillo-Marxuach's full statement is a lot. Oh, BTW: @marceline will be pleased and/or enraged to know the book apparently extensively covers Sleepy Hollow.  
    • I binge watched seasons 1 and 2 after the series ended. I've never been able to watch any farther than that. The main thing I remember about this show is Dominic Monaghan stating non-clamantly in an interview that Matthew Fox was a wife beater. Wild times!
