Matthew Ashford Interview, KCRA Sacramento

I saw that Matt did an interview today for Channel 3 (KCRA) Sacramento, a NBC affiliate. He talks about I DO! I DO!, and the interviewer then mentions his return to DAYS, and J/J. I believe the DAYS part of the interview is at the @2:50 mark.

"Jack is fighting like mad to get Jennifer back. He has his work cut out for him because she has this great new boyfriend -- a doctor -- and Jack's daughter is really upset with him for splitting in the first place, so he's got his work cut out for him."

I am using the KCRA site for this link but I believe it is on YouTube.

So looks like more of the same. And what the fuck is the need for everyone to say Dan is a wonderful guy, do the writers really think the fans cannot remember storylines?

Yikes! No offense to Matt Ashford, but what's going on here? He cut his hair oddly and definitely looks rough.

He does looked more haggard than he has, but he has been heavily rehearsing and unlike most musicals he is on stage and sing, dancing, acting, and even playing instruments the whole time. And it is only he and Christina. I imagine that is pretty grueling.

You noticed the snipe too. I hope he puts some of that snark in Jack's dialog and some pissed off facial expressions.

I think he looks kind of exhausted. Nice snarky "that sounds new" in regards to Jack fighting for Jennifer. He doesn't sound disappointed, though, so I'm going with it.

I hope this plays out better than it sounds. The last thing I want to see is more Daniel pimping and Jennifer/Abby blaming everything on Jack. Do they really not believe he was held captive?

Hopefully this triangle will bring out a darker side of Daniel and he'll take drastic measures to keep Jennifer from going back to Jack. I just can't see myself caring about any of this if the writers continue to write Daniel as a saint. Two "good" guys fighting for the love of a "good" girl = Zzzzz. Let Daniel be the villain and re-define J&J as the rooting couple.

I don't know if it's that his hair is cut or if it's just slicked back. He looks kind of sweaty and ill here. I'm hopeful the fact that he's looked so good in other pictures (which have all been candids even, and not airbrushed promo photos) means this is sort of just an anomaly.

That's the part I don't get. This reminds me of the story in 92 where Marlena was kidnapped and put in the pit. She was supposedly on a business trip to NY, and she and Roman had had a fight the night before she left. So when she didn't call for a while, Roman was like, yep, that's why I was angry at her. But then as the days wore on and they still didn't hear from her, he got worried and tried to find her, and THAT helped set up the J/M/R triangle when she was found. He cared so much at that point, but she'd spent the time in the pit with John. So what they need to do here is something similar - have Jen be worried about Jack and torn between those feelings and her new feelings for Daniel. But if she refuses to believe that Jack was unable to contact her, then that side of the triangle is just totally missing. If she's in the middle of the triangle, she needs to have feelings for both, and what better way to reignite feelings for someone than to be worried about their safety.

Well, Dan does not need to be a villain. Jack is a reporter have Jack just show what Dan does, chases his female patients, beds them, gets bored, repeat cycle. His unprofessional behavior is enough to get his ass fired or normal people to find him disgusting. Then have Jennifer realize she is an idiot, try to get back to Jack and for Jack to tell her sorry she did not trust him, and he does not want to live always worrying about walking on egg shells around her to earn her love. Then Jennifer has neither guy, and has to grow and mature, and exist as a person without a man. Then have her fight for Jack.

Ugh, in other words we'll have to endure the same old 'Jack is the bad guy and must kiss everyone's ass' bullshit again. I really wish Jack would tell Jennifer and Daniel to fuck off and walk away. And please, can everyone stop pimping that douche Daniel??? :drunk: :puke:

No matter what you think, I DO love you.

I'm not familiar with a lot of J&Js history, and when I started watching DAYs M&M weren't even portraying their characters. Does Jack have a pretty bad history of just up and disappearing? If their back story starts off with Jack actually leaving to do this walkabout (before he gets captured or held hostage), I could see why Jennifer and Abby would be upset with him.

Was Jack held captive or not? It'd make no sense for Jennifer and Abby not to believe him, so what's the deal?

This is how you right a good triangle!

I am tired of DAYS pimping Daniel as well, they have tried and tried for YEARS to make us like him and WE DONT...what do they not get about that!

Why does this show has a 24/7 hardon for this character...I don't GET IT?

I'm thinking Jack did leave and lied about it - to pursue a story and keep his family protected, then he was kidnapped and became incommunicado. It fits with the ripped from the headlines comment Dee made before.

Jack has left before, but not without what he thought was good reason. He left when he found out he was responsible for Abigail's illness because he thought his family would be better off without them. . .is that it? He didn't actually leave in Africa--Jennifer took Abigail and left him. He "died" which doesn't count as leaving. Jack going on a "walkabout" is also out of character because the man hates dirt, sand, heat, the elements, etc. He wears suits or nice clothing (preferably suits, though) pretty much everywhere. I do not see Jack ever hiking for a long period of time in order to find himself.


ETA: He did leave when he thought he was dying in order to spare his family the pain of seeing him die. Again, he thought he was doing the right thing even though his family would disagree. If Jack leaves, it's always because he thinks he is protecting his family.
