Peter Reckell & Kristian Alfonso Dropped to Recurring!?

This is rumor and has not been confirmed yet, but rumor has it that Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso MAY end up going to recurring status on the show!

I am sure that if this is un/true, then we will know about soon. But this was just revealed to me not too long ago. Even though Bo/Reckell have a huge story coming, it could be possible with the direction Corday is sending this show!

Thoughts?

Well, at least they are still on the show. But again it is pretty clear Corday needs to clear budget money if he were to do this to them.

I know Reckell hinted at a story coming up but just how big were we talking? :frown:

As long as he doesn't fire them....... :drunk:

Financially, this may be what DOOL has to do in order to keep them.

Cutting every single one of the Big Four or having all of them off contract may just be suicidal. It'd surprise me since Corday seems to really like Bo/Hope out of all the veteran couples. I don't know, this would be extreme for Days to pretty much drop all of the Big Four.

And it'd be far more expensive to have them OFF contract but still appear. It makes me wonder if their airtime would diminish and it'd feel like they were gone too.

Okay....if Bope are on recurring, then the Steve and Kayla shoe has gotta drop soon.

If Bo and Hope are dropped to recurring status, I doubt we're going to see them unless they're needed for other storylines for contract players. Becuase if they're on recurring, that means the show has to pay them per episode. And that can't be cheap. That's why recurring actors that are going to be featured heavily in an upcoming storyline are bumped up to contract, because it's cheaper to pay them a salary, rather than per episodes.

Recurring is fired without the characters being written out of the show. Look at how Victor sometimes disappears for months on end for no good reason. That's what would happen with Bo and Hope and if either found another job, Days would have to recast or they would disappear like Mickey. Then again if Dool would only give them one day guarantees (aka 50 shows a year) I can see Peter and Kristian preferring the option of getting other work.

Okay now it's really over. Days as we know it is over.


Recurring at DAYS isn't like recurring at another soap. recurring at DAYS is holidays and a few throw away scenes a year.

If KA and PR are on recurring....I hope they start looking for work else where. Run Peter! Run Kristian! Run FREE!!!


Don't look back! Let Days burn down to the ground!

Well...

Kristian does have her jewelry line to keep her busy (she is always making appearances across the country for it) and I heard a long time ago that she wants to spend more time with that.

Victor/John Aniston is recurring because he choses to be. He does not want a contract.

Of course, this is all still just a rumor for now.

Maybe they are keeping Evans and Nichols because when they came back they took huge paycuts and they are the cheapest supercouple? And Corday knows he has to keep at least one

To me, this is more surprising than news of the Drake/Deidre firings. And also more harmful to the show. I really hope it's not true.

Cheapest? Yes....Rating Grabbers or Maintainers?....No.

I am convinced they are next.

I really thought Steve and Kayla would be the ones dropped to recurring if not dropped altogether. Their story has been... oh wait, they haven't really had a story.

Sharongate, bitches!

Isn't most of the GL cast recurring? Sometimes recurring actors get the most episodes or close to the most episodes per month on that show, maybe DAYS is trying to implement a similar model?

I've heard alot that Stephen/Mary Beth are the cheapest out of all the older super couples.

And now...I am not saying whoever said this is lying or wrong or anything...not discrediting any sources, and I have been proven wrong with Days lately, but this is just my personal opinion...

I don't think they'd do this. Again maybe I'll be proven wrong, its just too much at once, and I'd think Tomlin would be smart enough to at least keep them. And Corday actually seems to like Bo and Hope, would Tomlin really be able to talk him into pretty much dropping ALL of the Big Four?

I don't know, its just I'd think Tomlin/Corday would be much wiser than to drop them all within several days. Say what you will about them, but they ARE competent enough to comprehend this. If not...well, I will be shocked.
