Alice Sweeney and James Scott has put on some terrible performances sometimes, so I personally would not use them as an example. I can still think of recent scenes where they have been awful but,you might not think the story line was awful.

I can understand why Drake couldn't give his 100% to this John/Kristen/Brady mess, bc he knew how wrong and disgusting that was. It's kind of hard to play a scene when you despise the story underneath so of course that emotion it does show on screen. This year was a bad one for John. Big time. And it sucks that now Drake can't even "fix that" and show the REAL John Black and not this person, we've seen for months. It's truly sad. He deserves another shot.
It really was a crappy storyline but I would think that there has been many actors on soaps that have looked at their script and thought "Really? My character would never do that " but they still hit it out of the park. I don't know if I could really say that about him. He can do a good job at acting but this go around I had a hard time finding that in him.
I am curious. Can you give me an example, and it should be just as bad as the one that was written for John.
The one that jumps out at me was Kim Zimmer's Reva playing the clone. I've read where she HATED that storyline, thought it was stuipd BUT she still did her job. That was one bad storyline!
Even as a viewer, I look at RH on GH playing Franco playing Jason. I really have to wonder if he looks at this and think Jesus take the wheel BUT he does his job. Heck, even Allison Sweeney has said that there's been storylines for Sami that she didn't get and hated but she still did her job.
Look, I know that the character of John had crappy writing but I still contend that if you look at other shows and other actors they've had some storylines that they hated but they still gave it their all and we as viewers didn't know until after.
James Scott has complained about storylines he had to do on Days-- hated the writing, didn't fit his character. Did he even say that some of the writing "Sucked"?
Just curious-- has anyone else read interviews from soap actors that have said that they didn't like a storyline they were in but still did it ?
The story of RH playing Franco is still different from what John had to do. RH was playing Franco but, I was still seeing Todd in his portrayal. And I would not exactly say that story was awful, it was boring but it's was a way to insert RH back on the show. He had a functioning brain. They took John's brain away from him.
