I knew it would be harder for AMC, which is why I never understood people's early complaints that they were putting more effort into AMC. They NEED to. Having said that I don't think its weak at all. They probably do need to get Susan Lucci, but Debbi Morgan has already confirmed that they're working on getting Michael E. Knight. Since they have Opal I'm pretty sure they will be going after him and probably recasting Jake Martin if Ricky Paull Goldin doesn't want to join. Chrisell Stause has declined comment so far, leading me to believe they're at least talking to her.
Walt Willey has repeatedly said he hasn't been contacted yet, but I think they are going to base a lot of the cast on whether they secure Lucci. I still expect to see maybe Jack with Bobbie Eakes' Krystal if they can't get Lucci. There's plenty of people that they haven't even covered yet. The fact that they got Thorsten Kaye is totally shocking me, biggest shock of all of the casting news for both shows. I don't think he would be there without Alicia Minshew at least promising to drop in for the beginning of the show. That doesn't make sense. Very happy with the shape AMC is taking so far.
I'm with ya on all of it. A lot of the same thoughts crossed my mind. They DID need to put extra effort into AMC. Despite some talent, it's looking so weak. Yes, more casting is expected but it is quite sad that so many rushed back to OLTL yet everyone seems to be dragging their feet back to AMC.
