Hope this means the chances of Darin leaving when his contract is up are increasing since Max is a terrible character.
I'll co-sign on that.

Ditto!
I agree Max can go. I stopped watching Days regularly just after the Max/Chelsea blow job scene. That says a lot about how uncomfortable that pairing made me. Since that time both of them just leave me nauseous no matter whom they are paired with.
Jonny, unfortunately, when I think of them, THAT'S what I think of. I can still remember thinking "Damn, they did NOT go there!"
And Max, like Stephanie and EJ, have been all over the place. I think it goes back to changes in regime again. Apparently, some power that be down the line didn't like the race car driver aspect.
There was such wonderful history to be had with Max and Frankie. I honestly don't think Darin is that terrible. There are some actors that should not be put in certain situations. Darin makes a great Max bartender, great buddy, great brother, TERRIBLE uncle. And his character has been sullied by making moves on girls who are family, if not biologically. That's crossing a fine line. First there was Chelsea. Then Mimi was his legal nephew's wife (Shawn being the son of Bo, who is legally Max's brother). Then Stephanie. Unfortunately, I couldn't root for Max and Abby because Abby was turning into such a twit there at the end. Again, potentiality ruined. And they could have worked because there was no legal or blood relation.
Mad Max doesn't work well. I don't think Darin quite caught the subtle nuances of loving and despising a father at the same time. JKJ and Peter Reckell seem to have caught that. Personally, I think Jason Cook did, too (I know quite a few of you aren't fond of him, but I think he did well with playing the pissed-offness towards Bo).
Now, with some coaching, Darin might develop these skills. I'm trying to remember what he was doing during the Ed Scott years. Despite his flaws, Ed Scott apparently played some magic with his directors, who in turn pulled the best out of a lot of the actors.
Is Darin hopeless? No, I don't think so. I think he was put in situations for which he wasn't ready, and I have no idea how he got that Emmy nod.

^I think your right about that, Drew.

I've noticed they have been a bit more flexible with the actors since Wyman left. The only one during Wyman's time that got to do other side things was Kirsten Storms, I believe.
It was the same thing when Scrubs wanted Jay back but he couldn't because of Days, this was in summer 2007 when Jay was on very little. His story with Tyler didn't really start untill August.

I remember that. I have to wonder if maybe that had some effect on the recent negotiations with him.

Back in the day, it was virtually impossible for the actors to get time off for other projects.

And for those of you that are hoping Max is headed out the door, you may get your wish. :wave:

Not scoop (yet), but a tidbit I heard. We'll see what happens.

Probably a little too late (for me) since they also let BB go. My bitterness and revenge wants DB to get the boot too, but logically, the show needs to keep one male actor in the younger age range.

Maybe they might try to bring in a new young male though.

If Max is written off, I think it will be because DB wants to leave.

Wow. Most people seem to not like Max anymore. All I can remember from Max and Chelsea (I refuse to call them by their combined names because that would ruin my favorite snack!!) is that disgusting car scene they had when Max first showed up again :frustration:

Yep.

And I think you and I got or heard the same tidbit, OBK.

I have a feeling it depends on if the pilot gets picked up, though. If he leaves, I would bet they would recast because that would leave Chelsea without a love interest again.

Max isn't much of a love interest anyway.

I will miss DB if he leaves, I have always liked him for some odd reason. On the other hand, it was strange when they brought the character back in the first place, as he went away to summer camp i think in like 1992 and we never heard from him again until all those years later lol I think Melvin needs a fresh new love interest, something to really showcase her talent. As much as I like Max and Chelsea interacting, I can deal with it ending. Jeremy Horton, where are you hiding? You could be perfect for Chelsea.

That's only because, like many other characters on this show, he's had multiple personalities.

I enjoy Darin Brooks as well, proof of that is me casting him on my online series. But Max shouldn't have been de-sorased so much. As for Chelsea and a brand new love interest, I agree.

You can say that again.

Every writer has had a different vision and the character has suffered. I like Darin and feel like Hogan had something going with him and Abby. It's a shame that didn't materialize. I remember being so shocked when they brought him on. I never thought we would see or hear from him or Frankie again.

I like goldy's idea of bringing Jeremy on. I think the show needs to bring back some familiar names within budget so bring Jeremy back a reformed many but still with an edge and with a better actor. The Horton family needs re-replenishing. We really don't need anymore Brady's.

Yep, I think the budget can handle a talented newbie actor to play Jeremy Horton, and early thirtysomething woman to play Sara Horton. It could really bring the Hortons back into focus, with Maggie as the new matriarch :)

Seriously, that would be ideal. There are so many Hortons floating around who the writers can absically ahve free reign with. It's such a shame.
