SOD: Calliope and Eugene Reunion?

Calliope and Eugene Reunion on DAYS?
With Arleen Sorkin returning as the zany Calliope Jones, is it only a matter of time before John deLancie, her longtime partner in frolic and fun, returns as the equally zany Eugene Bradford? "Well, they want him back, but he's very busy," reveals Sorkin, who's kept in touch with deLancie over the years. "He's got a lot going on. Hopefully, they'll get him." Indeed, deLancie has enjoyed great success in film and prime-time since exiting daytime in 1989; most notably his seven year run on STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.

Um...that made me feel slightly better. I hope they get him. But if they do, I'm going to need them to get Deidre Hall there pronto. Like, seriously. I might cry.

It seems if he comes that it will be a bit down the line since he's busy.

I can honestly see him and Matt Ashford appearing in late summer/early Fall when they are available.

I think this shows that more people will be added to the initial list of returns. They are clearly still working on this.

...and why the hell does it seem like every single person who's worked on this show in the last 20 years is returning except for the one person I want the most?

It kind of sounds like they're preparing for the end.

I still think she still might. I think they may be saving the BIGGEST return for last. She's a big enough star for that.

Drake's Back!!

I must say...I love all the returns, but the more announcements that are made about people returning the more pissed off I become. Reason being: when Drake/Dee, Stephen/Mary Beth, and Thaoo/Leann were all fired it was because of the "budget." The more people that they hire help to solitify the fact that all of the "budget" mess was total and complete Bullshit! Fire 6 people to save money, but then hire more people than you fired originally!! UGH!!! :shrug: :frustration: :headbang:

That's who I would have been talking about, lol.

Who would you want ED to come back as? Only Kristen or would it matter?

When I opened this thread, I thought it was going to say that Deidre was returning! :(

If Eileen has to come back, Kristen only. None of this 10,000-characters bullshit. That nearly drove Eileen to a nervous breakdown.

Only Kristen, preferably. Susan is only necessary to explain how the hell Stefano got his hands on EJ all those years ago. After that, she can disappear.

Oh, well, no LOL.

I was referring more to Deidre because she's the person they need to go get right now. They can save ED for later this year when they need another big return for a big story.

Thanks! I jacked it from someone at SoapCity three years ago, LoL.

Eileen and Deidre need to return immediately. Their on-screen rival chemistry was like no other.

This is a special circumstance. The matriarch of the show passed away. You don't really worry about budget in this circumstance (although I do think the show has taken strides to help itself, hence PR's hiatus) and I would bet most of these actors are coming for whatever Corday can pony up money-wise. They are doing this out of respect for FR and not for the paycheck, at least I'm sure most of them are, so the budget thing takes a backseat. Also, the show is in a better position then it was when they made the cuts. The ratings are up and the financial situation is more stable.

To hell with waiting any longer. I've waited twelve years. That's long enough, LoL.

Leann was not on contract and came as a package deal with Thaao, no doubt.

Thaao, Dee, and Drake are more expensive contracts, having been veterans with the show a cumulative 20-30 years. Stephen and Mary Beth were lesser expensive contracts.

No one knows what the money is with some of the returns. Those who are returning simply for Alice may not be making anything, if rumors can be trusted. If they are, its chump change in comparison to those contracts. It's not a simple ratio.

However, I've never bought the budget crisis, either. The reasons they were cut was more politics than anything. GT wanted to change the shape of the show and couldn't do that as long as there were so many front-burner vets. Doesn't have any impact on these short-term returns, though, IMO.
