Just picked up the new edition of SOW and under "Goings" it said Jim Lunsford will leave when Benjy falls victim to Andre.

GET EM STEPH!!

It was predictable but it will be sad. There needs to be more blood spilled during this feud story to amp up the drama. This should give SN, MBE, and even RJ great material. I like Lunsford alot and love Benji. He is such an interesting character but I can see the dramatic potential his death could bring.

Should be interesting.

Marcus Patrick is also out apparently.

Cindi Rhinehart from NW Afternoon broke the news.

I did like Benjy, but given his lack of airtime, I also saw this coming. The writers never really gave him a storyline, so his character status was relatively obvious.

Benjy could have honestly been really useful in this storyline if written better and more. He could have been the black sheep of the family along with Tony, not wanting to further the crime already going on. Or he could have been conflicted to do whatever Stefano wanted him to do for fear that his own family would be harmed in the matter.

*sigh* Whatever...

I always thought Jim Lunsford to be cute when I saw him in some scene where he passed a tarot card to Steve. That sucks that he's out.

I'm not surprised by this news but it still sucks. That character was totally under utilized and could have done so much more than what he was given.

As for Marcus Patrick, no big loss for me although I would have preferred them to have gotten rid of Jeremy instead, I hate that guy!

My only worry with Marcus Patrick's exit is that the character of Jett seems to be useful to the writers, so are we going to have to deal with a recast?

Benjy is such an appealing character that this will be really sad--but at the same time I'm not surprised and can even understand why, because we need something with an emotional punch. Unlike Jett, who I am hoping will die. So, of course, I'm not heartbroken to hear about Marcus Patrick. Too bad he's out of a job, but Jett was just not working for me. If they recast, they need to re-work the character as well.

I agree. Jett was just too bland. He was only a prop for Chelsea.

Nooooooooooooooooo! Benjy and Lexie are my favorite DiMera's and now one is leaving! :( Hogan is *such* an idiot when it comes to writing this (formerly) amazing family! So many great characters being wasted.

I so hope they don't go to the trouble of recasting Jett. Just let the worthless character leave with MP.
