the man got his job because of his connections, not acting skills......is it any surprise he sucks this much......

It says he read for them multiple times. I think the majority of the current cast is proof that they're not exactly looking for talent, though.
IMO the running lines was nothing more than a formality........brought in by a buddy who then created a character for him........and yes there are others who can join him in the talentless lineup, but the key is less screentime......its not as obvious :D
It seems like all of the crappy ones are onscreen a lot to me, lol. I think that having a character written for him is a bigger deal than the rest. Although, I kind of think he's wrong about that. I think that character would have been written in regardless of him because of the way they wanted to accommodate AS's pregnancy.
ditto on the character being written for him part............

I think they were going to write in a new character due to AS's pregnancy - and once they decided to hire GG they set about to write Rafe to fit him.

I wonder what it is about GG that made them think the role of a boring, self righteous, jerk fit him?

I have very much enjoyed GG's portrayal of Rafe2 (even though he was a real creep) and think he did a great job ...I also enjoy him when he is Rafe,he doesn't come across as being arrogant most of the time to me but I know he does to others.The clips I have seen on YT of him in Passions were truly cringeworthy though ..really,really bad,I'm amazed he had a following at all.

I agree.. whether it was him or someone else, I think it was decided to move Sami into a different Romance. TPTB had decided to eliminate Lucas for some reason .. (I think he was likely just to outspoken and critical, so they made him expendable) And Since they wanted Sami to be her Mothers daughter, they created a character out of their version of a mix of Roman/John.
Im sure it didnt hurt that Galen and Alison were also very good friends as well, so Im sure she was excited at the prospect of working with him.

Tomlin may have gotten him in the door and given him an opportunity, but Im sure the reading.experience,and his good looks, and His friendship with AS probably got him the job.. Probably more so than Tomlin.

amen, and having him as a screen buddy has not helped AS one bit......she has gone from bad to worse.........maybe their close friendship can lead them to a couple of acting classes.......sorely needed!
