To this day I'd recast Grant Aleksander as Jeff Webber. I don't think the age disparity is too much, and Grant has aged visually.

I kind of agree, but I have to admit it would be strange to see him in scenes with ex-wife Monica with this casting.  But he's great and I miss seeing him onscreen.

Well, wasn't Monica always into Rick and ended up with the younger brother? I think it can work given how Grant has aged.

Rebecca Budig was in a position to be turning the #1 soap down? Lord have mercy!

 

What's next? Alicia Minshew was too good for Victoria?

According to Barbara Morgenroth, the final HW of The Doctors, soap newcomer Hillary Bailey (Smith) was cast as a nurse named Kit over three future movie stars in 1982...Holly Hunter, Ellen Barkin and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Ms. Morgenroth and her senior line producer wanted Holly Hunter for another role, but NBC decided they wanted a man to play the role. That man was Jamey Sheridan, later of L&O: CI fame. Ms. Morgenroth joined TD's FB fan group not long ago and revealed all of this.

Colleen Zenk in an interview says that in June 1975 and the months following her moving to New York City she auditioned for Guiding Light, All My Children, As the World Turns, Another World and Search for Tomorrow and they turned her down. And then she screen tested for a role as a hooker on ATWT in 1978 but then she said that she was placed on contract but they didn't know what to do with her and then gave her the role of Barbara Ryan. She also turned down an offer from DAYS in 2010.

 

Wonder which roles she was up for?
