I don't understand why after Days fired him the last time Bryan turned to carpentry instead seeking work as a actor. He's an actor, living in LA go out and try your luck. He's a good looking talented guy I'm sure he would have been successful with at least making a good living as a actor. People less talented and less good looking than him fill up our screens every day.
I'm not sure why you think he didn't.

Plus, he has a son to take care for. I'm sure that must have played into his decision.

While I can understand it, BD's shameless plug tweet is a risky move that could backfire. TPTB don't usually like an actor encouraging fans to lobby the show. No doubt he knows this, so it's curious that he would take that risk. Maybe he's seeing that his days are numbered.

He's lucky to still be on the show, because I fully expected him to get the boot from Tomlin along with the others MarDar brought back. He's the only one besides LR and the DHs who survived. I think the DHs are still around because Sony or someone above GT kept them there. As for LR, who knows? Maybe her name recognition outside the show? In any case, even though she was eased out rather than killed off in the Daysaster, the fact remains that Tomlin eventually got rid of her.

But I think Tomlin kept Lucas around for two main reasons: he's in the right age group and he can be trotted out occasionally to prop up the WilSon or the Ejami stories that Tomlin cares about. As others have pointed out, Tomlin will not use the most talented and veteran actors on the show unless he absolutely has to. He's supposedly the darling of TPTB because he saves them montoy so, who knows, maybe Tomlin gets a bonus for using the cheapest actors and keeping others on the backburner. :shrug:

I wish BD well.

Tomlin just doesn't give a crap for the character, he doesn't like the character period, so he shows his bias by not writing for him. It's too much of a coincidence that the same thing that happened at a time when GT was the Co-EP at Days is happening again (virtually identical) now that he's the Co-HW. I don't think that it's a risky move for Bryan to try to get fan support, many actors have done it and it's worked for some. He actually did it a few years back and it actually sort of worked for him.

Oh and he did try to get work in the acting field after he was let go from Days. But as we all know sometimes finding a job doing something you enjoy isn't easy, it's even harder finding an acting gig.

LuvingLumi SONY is IMO running the show and to me I factor that with how MarDar likely under SONY's order were phasing him out by having Sami run off with EJ during and leading up to the daysaster which was done to put EJ and Sami together, hence the breakup of lumi, no actual love scene and Lucas being the one shown to be 100% in the relationship while Sami was clearly not So whatever is going on is not on TomSell soley as he is not even the EP anymore and I truly believe they are being told what to write.The story is continuing in that direction to the present. So there is limited air time for characters like Lucas who IMO was first marginalized in the winter of 2007 when they "rested him" under ED Scott's direction and that has only continued .

The story is continuing in that direction to the present.
I'm not sure Sony is having that much of an influence and even if they did that still doesn't explain why they can't even plan a story for Lucas. Are we really to believe that the 30s something set can't use another 2 women in that bracket when all we have is Nicole and Sami....we have Brady get love interest after love interest, we get Rafe to go from Sami to Carrie, we get Ej's attempts with Nicole and Taylor, but Lucas can't have a love interest? A believable one outside of Sami? WHY? It's not even like they want to chem test.

I like to look at it this way. He and Matt Ashford are two very popular actors with large fanbases and their characters can't ever move on from their 'one great love' while the woman moves from one to the other very very easily.....seriously, no attempt is being made with either character and we know what happened to Jack.....I just don't want the same thing to happen to Lucas. I know the best thing to wish for is likely to get TOmlin out of there, but at this stage I just need someone to really stop playing with us fans this way.

On the 2007 thing, Ed Scott might have rested him back then, but he also shifted him onto another female and actually started the story with Chloe and Lucas. Sure they weren't popular and they should have chem tested the actors but Ed Scott was going to go with them and Dena didn't seem to have an issue at first with the pairing....remember it was only after GT took the helm at Days that we started seeing Lucloe go off the rails and all of a sudden in a few weeks Dan was feeling Chloe up and well the end was near at that point.

I'm sure BD sees the writing on the wall. Lucas isn't old enough to be kept around indefinitely and trotted out in holidays, and Tomlin clearly has no use for him.

From what I have seen from the SONY site and theirs and NBC's tweets on Twitter I do believe they have that much influence because the couples and characters they are promoting as romance with little room to discredit their glaring bias for all things EJ and Sami, leaves little doubt when that's exactly what's playing out on screen with them and ridiculous dialogue to boot from Sami especially to "sell them" but it stinks especially when what she says to justify things Ej did in RECENT history makes NO SENSE that's because nothing does , especially when she still hates Nicole and soley blames her for Kidnapping Syd while not having her mention that it was EJ who made her think she was dead and the "he's the father of my kids" line drives me crazy. Hello Allie is whose child again? EJ especially being inserted everywhere. I don't know why they wont cast an actress for Lucas but they aren't writing Rafe anymore favorably this time around. He has nothing to do other than pine away for Sami and the majority of his recent scenes have soley been with or about her and then he's gone for the rest of the episode. I have said the marginalization of Lucas started in December of 2007 when he was sent to prison off screen pre Tomlin and has only since continued. Also there are those rumoured "rewrites" shortly after TomSell took over from SourceRyan that I also take into account SONY's influence over what TomSell wanted which proclaimed they were "going with SAFE but because of the rewrites that changed". So I doubt he has any power over anything least of which is if Lucas will get a love interest to me the PTB have always treated Lucas like outside of Sami he is nothing or Kate for that matter. Only briefly in 2002- 2003 was he given a job outside of Sami because they were not yet paired but after pairing them and breaking them up I think they wont give him a love interest because they feel Sami was shallowy his best romantic pair and the only one he had chemistry with though I think Cassie and Lucas and Arianna and Lucas looked good too but one was discovered to be his sister and the other had a thing for EJ and was soon after killed off. Going further back writing him off in 2001 was the very first instance where they showed a lack of interest in writing for him and that was also pre lumi and Tomlin so I don't blame him. Bryan was simply NEVER given much especially post Lumi but the mistreatment of the character started in 2001 pre lumi with him getting caught in the Kirakis fire where they were planning to kill him off.

If they fire Bryan again, I would prefer Lucas being killed off over having him be shipped out of town. That would eliminate the further destruction of his character and the abandonment of his kids. Plus, a character's death has never stopped Days from bringing the character back later. At one point it was a sure guarantee that if you died your character had a better chance of returning, lol.

Please write 4 Bryan Dattilo, Give him a love interest.

I don't get it, why can't Bryan say he wants more screen time? I can not possibly see what that would get any one fired.

I agree that BD sending out such a direct plea for help tweet really must speak to the desperation he's feeling. He could have taken a more indirect approach to keep it more PC. Like simply asking what story lines people would like to see Lucas in.

He went this route which tells me he doesn't care about the repercussions because they can't be worse than the writing he sees on the wall. Sad. Tomlin is nothing if not predictable.
