Austin Peck in talks to return?; "There have been some calls..."

From Austin Peck's new interview with Michael Fairman...

Quote:
 
So what if Days came a-calling and asked Austin back for a return engagement? Would he consider heading back to Salem?

Oh, yeah, I would go back in a New York minute. There have been some calls. So we shall see."

He also clarifies the reason for his exit from As The World Turns...

Quote:
 
I think when people see what is coming up with the story line [which facilitates my exit from the show] they will see that there was a lot of time and effort put into it. It was not a, 'Hey, we need to get rid of somebody.' It was story-driven, and it is just sad that my character has to be at the end of it. I think its the best story line I have seen them do in a long time, and some of the best work I have seen Terri Colombino [Katie] do for a long time. Julie Pinson [Janet] and Michael Park [Jack] also are terrific, as you will see. And while at the same time I am flattered to be a part of it, I am sad that I ended up on the cutting room floor! Everybody at the show has been loving, kind, and supportive, and they have expressed their shock and bewilderment at the decision by the show to end Brad. They have been really kind to me.

I would mind Peck coming back to Days. He really improved at ATWT.

Co-sign.

The show has enough men anyway, and with the exception of Galen, they can all act circles around Peck.

If he's without Carrie, keep him away.

I will die of happiness if Austin and Carrie come back (together) again! They deserve so much better than the crap they got the last time. Bringing them back could fill the void left by Brandon and Martha.

IF Austin returns, I hope its with Carrie or leads to Christie coming back. Because the show is VERY manned up right now, and will be even moreso if Austin returns, we need some women in Austin and co.'s age range to balance it out.

nonononononononononononononononono to AP and that goes triple for CC.

But, to parse his actual words, all he said was, "There have been some calls." For all I know that means he's been calling the show and they haven't been calling him back.

Maybe if he came back as a different character though I could tolerate him.

What would be the purpose? They already have a bland male lead in Luis.

I hope they don't grab him just because they can.

Oh I am so mixed about this. I loved Austin and Carrie until their last run. Carrie is kind of dead to me these days, but the only way I would want Austin back is if Carrie is with him. AND they MUST, both, stay THE HELL AWAY from Sami and Lucas. I don't know, does the canvas seem like its getting a little crowded, or is it just me?

They could fix that by getting rid of Phillip/Stephanie/Mia/Chad/Melanie/Nathan/etc.

Hell no, Peck sucks and so does the character of Austin. I would really want Carrie back without Austin though.

I've become emotionally invested in those characters, they are so much more interesting and multidimensional than Aus-dumb. They all have really grown massively in talent and appeal over the last 6/7 months and no, I wasn't expecting that to happen. Not to mention they all can act better than Peck with their hands tied behind their backs with gimp masks on.

As for Carrie, I loved her back in the day but they ruined her character by making her a multiple adulterer when she was meant to be a heroine. I am also probably in a minority because I think she was better suited with Mike - at least his IQ wasn't in the single digits and didnt give his unwavering loyalty to Carrie's arch-nemesis Sami, which never made sense after all the things Sami had done to him (drugging him to sleep with him, lying about Will's paternity, lying about Lucas being a bad father etc.)
