Viewing Single Post From: Interesting/Spoilerish Tweets, Week of 12/3

While I can understand it, BD's shameless plug tweet is a risky move that could backfire. TPTB don't usually like an actor encouraging fans to lobby the show. No doubt he knows this, so it's curious that he would take that risk. Maybe he's seeing that his days are numbered.

He's lucky to still be on the show, because I fully expected him to get the boot from Tomlin along with the others MarDar brought back. He's the only one besides LR and the DHs who survived. I think the DHs are still around because Sony or someone above GT kept them there. As for LR, who knows? Maybe her name recognition outside the show? In any case, even though she was eased out rather than killed off in the Daysaster, the fact remains that Tomlin eventually got rid of her.

But I think Tomlin kept Lucas around for two main reasons: he's in the right age group and he can be trotted out occasionally to prop up the WilSon or the Ejami stories that Tomlin cares about. As others have pointed out, Tomlin will not use the most talented and veteran actors on the show unless he absolutely has to. He's supposedly the darling of TPTB because he saves them montoy so, who knows, maybe Tomlin gets a bonus for using the cheapest actors and keeping others on the backburner. :shrug:

I wish BD well.
