They claimed to have been a soap writer and got their start working with Claire Labine. One of their other claims was that Corinne Jacker had been the first African American head writer for a soap opera.
Absolutely. I love Vaughan too but Eric is recastable. Just get Dan Wells. The fans would eat it up. Done.
Eric should really be around for this story 100%.
A part of me wonders if they didn't want to recast both EJ and Eric around the same time but ... the DAYS go on ...
With Eric around and Shawn being given Rafe's spot at the PD, you DON'T NEED RAFE. Siiiiigh. EDIT: Hell, give some of Rafe's airtime to Lucas. Done.
I love me some Greg Vaughan, but if he doesn't want to be around full time, they should just recast Eric. It would be great to have Marlena's son, a former priest, around for the possession story. Plus it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth that Nicole is so hung up on Rafe but doesn't give Eric, her soon-to-be ex-husband, a second thought.
