Shortest Wait Between Roles?

He is, but you just can't see him (commercial voiceovers). No, I know what you mean. I wish he would show up in something, too.

Days? Didn't he have a role on there?

Mike and David got SORASED, while Steve, who was in that age group already,remained offscreen.

Wasn’t Steve older than Julie, but when Stephen took on the role it seem he was younger than her.

Checking Jason47 website, it appeared that Steve was only on two episodes in 1965 (Played by Flip Mark). Robert Knapp and Patricia Hudson, who played his parents Ben and Addie Olson were written out in early 1966. Probably an off-sceen Steve was said to have moved to Paris with them.

James Caroll Jordan played the role for ten episodes in 1972. I don't know if they had bigger plans for him. Steve moved back to Salem from Europe but quickly missed Paris and left again. That sounds like an aborted plot.

Of course, Stephen Schnetzer is the best remembered as he was recurring in the role from June 1978 to Christmas Day 1979 but his plot (being involved with a drug smuggler) failed miserably. Sad the character was never heard or seen again but after SSH left in 1984, it was not surprising that they forgot all about Steve.

When bone tuberculosis briefly ended Bill Horton's medical career as a surgeon in 1966, Bill left Salem and moved to nearby Pine Grove. In addition to reuniting with his brother, Tommy, who was living there under the Mark Brooks alias, he befriended Mary McCall and her son, Tim McCall. When Mary died, Bill became Tim's guardian. In 1975, instead of aging David Banning and Mike Horton, DAYS could have brought Tim McCall back on the canvas with Wesley Eure playing him.

Tim would have been age appropriate to play out Mike's 1970s stories. Leave Mike's adult stories to Michael T. Weiss and Roark Critchlow later on in the eighties and nineties. With the late Richard Guthrie playing Steve instead of David, Steve would have also been age appropriate to play out David's 1970s stories as well as Steve's late 1970s's stories to give Guthrie plenty to do. David would have never aged prematurely, and Doug and Julie would have never been pushed into grandparents' roles so soon. DAYS could have waited until 1989 to cast Rick Hearst as David instead of Scotty. Around the same time, Todd McKee, who was playing Ted Capwell on Santa Barbara, left SB. DAYS could have made an offer to him to jump ship to play David Banning instead of Bold and the Beautiful snatching him up to play Jake McClain.  Just a possibility.

I like that idea. He was so underutilized on SB.
