Just for fun- imagine if each soap did an episode recreating the first show using current cast members.

Who would you choose to play Erica? Viki? Alice Horton?etc

Maybe we could also include some early cast members who may not have appeared in the first eppy.

Looking forward to your suggestions!

I will post original casts if requested for any posters who need their memory jogged...

I think it would be pretty fun to do for an anniversary episode a remake of older episodes. Instead of showing a rerun, just recreate an entire episode thats relevant to the current plot. And maybe if there is a subplot that isn't really important, just plug something else classic in. I'd love to see the modern Y&R cast do the 80s. The only soap that could truly get it right is probably B&B.

ATWT sort of did this during Eileen Fulton's 50th anniversary episode, with Ellen Dolan as Nancy, Billy Magnusson and Marnie whatsername as Lisa/Bob, Terri Conn and Daniel Cosgrove as Lisa/Don.

For a laugh B&B should cast Hunter Tylo as Beth and Susan Flannery as Grandma Logan and have them spend the entire episode talking about how much they love Brooke.

I'll add my picks tomorrow but to help others out regarding the original cast of GH:

Angie was a teenager in a car crash that was disfigured but later underwent plastic surgery. Lexi Ainsworth would be perfect to play her lol as she spent much of the first episode throwing a tantrum!

Eddie was her boyfriend and caused the car crash.

Al was Eddie's father and later married Audrey's sister Lucille after he was widowed.

Mrs Weeks - Al's wife, Eddie's mother.

Mike Costello - Angie's father (I think) ran a restaurant.

Janet Flemming - patient who Phil Brewer performed an emergency hysterectomy on. Tried to sue Phil for malpractice and later adopted Angie and Eddie's baby, though Angie and Eddie got him back in the end.

Fred Flemming - Janet's husband. Left her because she couldn't have children.

Ken - a doctor. was the boyfriend and later husband of Cynthia.

Cynthia - a nurse. Had an affair with Phil Brewer but he ditched her to go back to Jessie so she married her old boyfriend Ken on the rebound.

Not sure who Priscilla, Roy or Phillip (a Phil and a Phillip in the same cast?) were though.

This is interesting. I think that the current casts can't compare to the old guard, but it's a way to pass the time.

AMC:

Phoebe - Jill Larson

Linc - MEK

Jeff - Jacob Young

Amy - Jamie Luner

Nick Davis - Walt Willey

Erica - (younger) Shannon Kane

Mona - Debbi Morgan

Joe - Cameron Mathison

Charles - Michael Nouri

Ruth - Alicia Minshew

Ann - Chrishell Stause

Tara - (younger) Christina Bennett Lind

Phil - (younger) Cornelius Smith, Jr.

Chuck - (younger) JR Martinez

Ted - Vincent Irizarry

Kate's the only one (besides Lois and...Bobby :lol:) that I can't think of someone for.

ATWT (using its final cast):

Chris Hughes - Scott Holmes

Nancy Hughes - Ellen Dolan

Don Hughes - Jesse Soffer

Penny Hughes - Marnie Schulenburg

Bob Hughes - Billy Magnussen

Grandpa Hughes - Don Hastings

Edith Hughes - Maura West

Judge Lowell - Larry Bryggman

Jim Lowell - Trent Dawson

Claire Lowell - Kelley Menighan Hensley

Ellen Lowell - Jennifer Landon

Jeff Baker - Van Hansis

I wish GUIDING LIGHT had never aired that episode, if only b/c they had the nerve to tack on Tammy's death at the end, as if that event had as much importance to the overall history of the show as GL's first TV episode, or the death of Kathy Roberts Holden.
