What the f-u-c-k, when did DAYS become a dumping ground for shiteous Passions actors?
The minute Ed Scott was escorted out the door, apparently. :hmmph:

And I'm not holding the fact that they were on PASSIONS against them. It's the fact that they can't act for shit that I'm holding against them.

Un-freaking-believable. That's all I gotta say. Things get stranger by the day. Higley needs rehab.

I'm hoping Eric turns out to be a good Brady...If we aren't going to get Belle back, it would be nice for John to have his son back..And he's got the right look...

Was every other unemployed actor in Hollywood busy when the casting call went out for these two roles? Not to mention the fact that we really do need two new additions in major roles to an already large cast filled with underutilized talent.

At least Eric can somewhat act, but Galen? Pure eye candy, if you like that type. I wonder who Galen's character will be paired with?

Thanks, Pearly, but not helping.
I guess what bothers me is that Bryan Datillo is a decent actor with lots of Days history. He is doing NOTHING right now. He could be involved in Titan, with Victor, romancing Stephanie/Chelsea/Nicole, etc (I guess anyone but Chloe, Sami). He's got kids and relatives on the show...and he is doing NOTHING.

JKJ is gorgeous and he can act, has chemistry with almost every lady, and involved in Kiriakis business and could pretty much handle himself opposite some really big vets. But no contract renewal.

Then, they hire these two pieces of eye candy, both of which don't have too many fans in the acting department. And if I may quote a lovely poster..."pecks and peckers". That about sums them up for me. There is nothing I can't stand more than a hot actor who can't act...Nadia comes to mind. I never realized bad acting until I watched her.

Anyways, I assume P&P will be replacing one of the above.
And honestly, I love him, but I wouldn't miss BD. He just seems like he is phoning it in lately, especially in that last scene of him and JKJ. JKJ stole that one. Lucas keeps coming off like a total bum.

However, if I didn't give the beefcake, shirtless studs a chance, I might have never met my James Scott. He has impressed me most of all, so I guess I will give these guys a chance.

What can I say, Alli? You can't blame a girl for trying, can you? :iagree:

I'm not mad bc of that, I'm mad because they picked two of the worst actors on Passions, and the show had a variety of capable actors.

I mean I would give my left nut to have Juliet Mills on DAYS.

I'm not familiar with this actor, but I'd rather not have Brady back unless it is to ride off into the sunset with Chloe again. From many comments, I am not looking forward to his or the other Passions actor coming aboard. Nothing against either one, but why cut some just to hire others?

Here is the bottom line for me (okay maybe more than one);

-For one thing, Days does not need to keep adding to the cast especially to attempt to cash in on an actor's popularity from another show. That's GH's forte, remember?

-The characters GG and EM will be playing are NOT needed.

-And three, I watched both of them on Passions and have objectively critiqued their acting for various Emmy articles for Soaptown. Martsolf has a problem with atttacking his material. He lets himself fade into the woodwork around stronger actors. When all the secrets came out during the finale, Martsolf was painful to watch. I have seen him do better than that. Gering has been known to have a flash of brilliance here and there, but a lot of the time, he falls a little flat. Both of them went to the Steve Burton "Blink/Stare" school of acting. Perhaps with the right character and right show, things will improve but it won't happen if the skills were never really there to begin with.

Now I don't want a bunch of fangurls jumping in my shit. A true fan know when their favorite brings it and when they don't and can look at their acting choices objectively.

True,but lets wait to be critical till he actually appears on the show and wheather he is good in the part or not I will LOVE Eric anyways,he has been nothing but super sweet to me,so I will show him the same affection.
He could be the most wonderful person in the whole world, but that doesn't necessarily mean acting is his forte. Or at least, certain kinds of acting. What else do these folks have to judge him on besides previous work???

Oh no, not at all! In fact, I was a very big fan of Passions for awhile! I loved it for years! And again, GG is okay, its just in the later years on Passions he wasn't that good. And I never found Eric to be good at all. Again he won't be playing as big of a central role on Days as he was on Passions, but I could never buy him as Ethan Winthrop, the hero of the show. I loved Liza Huber, I loved Lindsay Hartley, but not him.

I want to know what kind of drugs tptb are on. I believe that this may be the most amazing combination of legal drugs ever combined. One pill gives you a false sense of confidence and invincibility, the other is like a tranquilizer, and the other one is like LSD without freaking out. Maybe it is in the same pill? I just happen to be going to Hollywood for five days starting tomorrow, and I promise to investigate this new drug with determination and vigor. I will be back with some answers.
The people that fucked up Wall Street probably abused this drug which would explain the collapse of the financial markets.
I will get to the bottom of this and report back. Higley must be downing these pills like gummy worms.
