Dallas 2.0: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Interesting tidit, Brett Claywell (Ex Kyle Lewis, OLTL) is roomates with Josh Henderson who was cast as John Ross. Brett tried out for a role (believe to be the Christopher Ewing role) but didn't get it due to age.

They're like months apart...he can't have been up for Christopher unless TPTB at nuDallas are "on some other stuff" and think than BC looks older or younger than JM.

Thanks, Carl :) I was pretty apathetic about him until the wheels on the bus went round and round right on poor Darren last week. I know you love Max, but I wanted to string both him and Jack up by their necks :lol:

Isn't he around the same age as Metcalfe?

Yeah just looked it up they are the same age, so I guess Brett must have tried for a different part then or he lied/was lied to about why he didn't get it.

"The Cane creators" Was Cane any good? It was canceled in three weeks. :lol:

Jesse Metcalf? I guess I could see him as the son of The Man From Atlantis, but this does not bode well. Then again, who would have ever thought Justin Hartley would have worked out so well on Smallville?

Cane was actually a very good Latino soap. I liked that CBS at least tried to getback to their soapy roots but it was too different for the network.

I hated Cane. I thought it was soooooooo boring and poorly cast. There was no charisma, no flash, no flair. It was dead and dull.

I am actually kind of fearful for how Dallas could turn out under Cynthia Cidre.

I wasn't a huge fan of Cane either. I loved the basic premise, and it's illegal to not love Rita Moreno, but I couldn't get over the fact that we were supposed to root for a murderer right out of the gate.

Rita Moreno was the only good thing about the show, she sunk her teeth into the small role she had and flew with it.

Polly Walker could have been fabulous, but she wasn't sexy, wasn't dangerous, wasn't glamorous. She was just there, spiteful.

Not to mention that hideous accent!

Of course everyone compared Cane to Dallas/Dynasty just like they did with Brothers & Sisters and Dirty Sexy Money. Cane, I think, in premise/style ALONE was most like the classics. It was straight drama, and I so, so, so wanted it to be good because of that.

Maybe it's because I have absolutely no imagination, but I can't picture Brewster, Henderson, Metcalfe or Russell in a love triange. Maybe it'll look better onscreen than it does in my head.

I told you. The casting sucked. Jimmy Smits as a prime example. He ruined so many shows.

I am weeping for you guys! I really don't mind that Veronica Mars alumna Julie Gonzalo has also been cast -- since some of her guest appearances on The Glades and Nikita -- I've really taken a liking to her.
