Soap Opera Digest 10/21/08 Issue:

As previously reported, Eric Martsolf (ex-Ethan, PASSIONS) is taking over the role of Brady on DAYS. Now the actor's predecessor, Kyle Lowder (Rick, B&B), weighs in on the recast.

"They couldn't have found a better choice because Eric is a friend of mine," enthuses Lowder. "He's a great guy and I'm happy that he's doing it. We're very similar in our personalities and we both sing. If there's anything he wants to know or needs a crash course on Brady, I'll be the first one to help him out with that."

"[Executive Producer] Ken Corday called me himself about the recast, which I thought was very honorable and respectful. He said, 'Kyle, I want you to hear it from me.' I thought that was so classy. They really wanted to bring the character back and when he told who they wanted, I said Eric was the best one possible."

"I really urge the fans to give him a break. He's a good actor and he's going to dominate that role. He needs support and leeway. He's a whole lot buffer than I am, so that's a bonus for fans. They're actually getting a little more man in that role [laughs]."

Wow! What a classy guy. I think he's right we all need to give both Eric and Galen a chance.

Corday and classy are two words I definitely wouldn't use in the same sentence unless there was a "not" connecting them.

Let's be real. He probably is happy Eric was casted because he knows by comparison he's practically Jack Nicolson.

I've never seen EM in action before, but given how badly I thought Kyle Lowder sucked, this is truly scary.

I wonder if he would prefer having EM do sex scenes with his wife's character rather than JS!

When I first read this I thought you meant you wondered whether he would rather have EM do sex scenes with JS than AZ, not that he would rather have EM than JS be the ones having sex scenes with Nicole! But I think we're on the same page now, lol.

Sorry, Kyle, but I don't give a crap if he's a million times better looking than you are. If we have to have Brady back, I want someone in the role who can act. And you're not exactly the best person to be judging what good acting is, either.

Well considering he's replaced a popular emmy winner on his own show, he's hardly one who could condemn a recast. So this is all lip service.

That was really classy of Kyle to say... I'm really hoping that EM can do better without being under the pen of JER. Unfortunately, there are rumors of JER returning and taking over for DH. I would hate to see EM languish in that situation again! Whatever happens, I want to see if he can act, because at the moment I'm not convinced, but I'm willing to give him another chance...
