My first thought was if they are not writing Lexie/Abe off the show (the mentions for the special school, Abe throwing in his badge), then I thought of Rachel Melvin.

Kate is supposed to be ill, but then again, there's the spoilers for her marriage proposal from Steffy, and her potential relationship with Dan, I don't know - don't think it's her really.

Corday said that they are going to explore the chemistry between Dan and Kate, and hooking Nick up with Melanie (who is cheap, talent wise) would leave Chelsea out in the cold at this point. Considering that they keep having the men in her life sleep with her family members, it really doesn't feel like there's a lot of love for her. JMO.

Then another vet spec that I had concerned JKJ, and that Branco interview, where he says the show hasn't been talking to him about re-signing yet, they write off his love interest...I don't know.

I am in no way saying I want any of these actors to leave, but basically, between what I've read and what's been on screen, these are probably the shakiest at this point.

Very plausible, Ivy. We think alot alike....I think it's the Latina thang! :cheers:

One more thing I'd like to say is that I've heard through the grapevine that the new EP wants to use more/different sets. So, this may be why they are budgeting via actor firings to make more money for sets.

OMG! Could they be casting Brandon Walker? If so, please no recasts. Get back Matt Cedeno. I know he wasn't the best actor, but he and Alison Sweeney had off the charts chemistry.
I don't get those that say he was bad, I think Matt was great.

Please don't bring back that man. He's not very attractive and can't act. As a Latina I'm all for having my people represented on tv, especially on Days, which hasn't had a Latin character in a dog's age. However, all I ask is that they represent us right!
Brandon is not latin so you don't have to worry.

^^^ As long as it isn't Emilio, April or Julio. LOL!

I have a feeling that lots of cuts will be needed in the next year. They'll either have to shoot the show like Guiding Light, or get rid of some of the insane amounts of money they spend on talent.

You are right, he isn't latin. Abe ended up being his bio dad, not Paul.

Wasn't there a script posted a bit back about a friend of Brandon's hitting on Nicole at the java cafe?

You know initially I wondered how they could regress Nicole's character into trying to con for basically small change. I didn't realize how much it's gonna hurt her when she loses Victor's settlement so she will be starting from square one.

I thought he was Paul's son? I most have missed the eppy where they made him Abe's son. Well the actor is certainly Latino and very vocal about it. I still don't want to see him onscreen though.


He was born in Moses Lake, Washington to an Afro-Cuban father and an Irish-English mother.

^^Yes the actor is latin, but the character isn't. It was revealed that he Abe's son shortly before he left the show. From what I remember it was around the time that Theo was born and they weren't sure if the baby was Abe's or Brandon's. Abe and Faye (Nicole and Brandon's mom) had an affair.

I don't know why it would matter whether he's Abe's son or Paul's son. In Corday/Higley's minds, the original actor was Latino, so the recast should be Latino too. LOL!

(I'm kidding... it's not like we have any confirmation that it's even Brandon. Just giving people a hard time. I couldn't help it. :-))

Yes, Marc. I bet that is who they are talking about.
I mentioned this last week in the episode thread but Marc has already been casted it seems. The name of Theo's doctor was Marc. He appeared twice last week. That makes alot of sense too since Brandon was in pediatric counseling and so is this guy.

As for the tidbits, they sound good.

I'm all for Brandon returning and I would not mind Cedano. As Drew said, his chemistry with Ali was off the charts. He's not the best actor but he had moments where he was ok. I actually came to like Brandon more with time and I felt JER did his character the most justice, shockingly enough. He kind of developed him into a more mature version who didn't fly off the handle so much. I think Brandon could be what Sami needs. Hell, he was the only guy that never seemed to get "Austinized" and accepted her for who she was most of the time. I would not mind a recast. Certainly, there are better actors out there. Even if this is not for Brandon, I'm ok with it because the show needs diversity and I'm all for new blood. Hopefully, this time whoever it is can act and they can stick around. I'm sick of Days developing characters and then axing them. It almost feels like you wasted time getting invested in them.

The cast cuts blurb is nothing we didn't already know and the key is that a vet MAY go. It seems like something is holding that back or the show is indecisive, which tells me that whoever this vet is may be loved by everyone and either did something that has Corday and co wondering if they should keep them or maybe it's just they have to cut someone and targeted this person but are hesitant because this person is so beloved. If I didn't know any better, I would say this is Josh Taylor, We all know Corday would be hesitant about axing him. He did do it during the SSK days and it seemed to tear him up. However, I don't see Abe going. I think Steve and Kayla will go together if they ever do. I can see it being Kate and, in all honesty, it probably is her they are considering. I feel certain Ed saved her from being axed last year. Ed and her go way back and I think he vouched for her.

The character had no story at the time and even though she does now, her contract is up in January so it can all be tied up nicely and I tend to think whoever may be going has a contract up soon. I'm at the point where I wouldn't mind Kate going anymore. It bothered me last year but not anymore. It's nice to see her in story but the character is just not the same. She should be this glamorous businesswoman and instead she wanders around town and now has this Heath and Home shit. Not that I can't see that working for her but it takes some away from the character. No matter who is writing it just seems like Kate ends up in the same stuff...interfering with her kids, a couple side plots here and there and that's it. It may be time to cut the cord unless they finally decide to give her something fresh.

I can see Peggy McKay being it too. With Trent being murdered, she will likely be a suspect I would think. She has been used alot this year but I could see her being the murderer and going to jail for it. Then again, Victor would probably get her off somehow. It just seems like Victor/Caroline will never happen and Caroline is actively supporting so it's logical. I believe her contract was up a few months ago or is up soon so that may make her a prime candidate.

As I said, though, the only reason I throw Josh Taylor out there is because it seems like Days is hesitant and Corday would be hesitant in regards to him. Plus, Roman just got passed over at the PD in favor of Hope and Roman has no story to speak of so it's logical as well. My other theory I posted in the Kristen Renton thread and that one pertained to the 'so-called diva" being the vet on the bubble.

What shocks me is that Renton likely got axed last week. Her last airdate is October 3rd and we learned last Friday about her axing, which makes me wonder why the other actress fired hasn't been revealed yet. One would think if they were axed at the same time, and it is implied that it happened that way, why do we only know about Renton? I just find that weird and it makes me worry that we may lose more then one vet. Perhaps the second actress fired is a vet as well.

I'm not surprised if Tomlin wants more set usage. He does things on a large scale while Scott is simple. Scott wanted straight up realism and character-driven, which I can appreciate but most Days fans can't. Many Days fans can't stand to tune into the Y&R-style. As I've said, Days needs to be a mix of many elements in an effort to appease the most fans and Tomlin can do that. Scott can get away with fewer sets with his vision but Tomlin's vision is different. I think it will work out in a way because many fans have complained about the same sets being used over and over and there have been times where things took place in places they shouldn't. However, I forget who says this but it was said..."It's either sets or vets." A vet or two will have to go to allow for more sets and such so it all depends on what one sees as more important. I'm game for whatever the show thinks is best.

One thing that annoys me though is we go through these cast cuts only to have them all but negated after a few months. They may cut 2-3 people here but in a few months they will bring someone back or bring new people on. I mean, in this same article they talk about a casting call being out already. I mean, you cut a few people and already have a person being brought in. It's negating the purpose in a way.

On a positive note, I don't think all this would be happening to a show about to be cancelled. It seems like once the cuts are decided and made public, we will probably get a renewal announcement.

Oh, I didn't realize that Theo's doctor was Marc. I remember seeing the guy, but didn't pay attention to his name.

^That's ok, Angie.

Alot of people didn't. I brought it up in the thread and I think everyone glanced over it (I always have these long posts LOL). I was shocked when I saw him too and then Lexie and Abe mentioned his name several times and then I realized I wasn't hearing things.

This falls in line with the rumor of Galen Gering coming to Days...
I liked Brandon and would welcome his return, unless he's just going to be written as yet another man in pursuit of Sami's worthless heart :x Then I wouldn't be interested.

I've never really cared for Brandon. Although, that sex scene with Lexie was umm quite porn like.
Their love scene was good. The Brandon and Lexie pairing was hot, and one of the few times I truly liked Lexie.

I hate we still donīt know who the fired are. I really donīt want to get interesting in something only to discover itīs another story/character which will have no end because of the backstage struggle. On the other side, it couldnīt be more obvious all the insiders who informed SON and other sites about the major moves this year were connected to Ed. As soon as he is gone we are completely in dark again.
