I'm disappointed CM is leaving. Hope DAYS hires a very good recast.

I think a recast is a bad move. I think more people would accept Sonny with a new love interest over a recast.

Corday said they weren't going to recast will but apparently they changed their minds? In any case, it's sad to see Chandler go. I make fun of his weird body language, dead druggie eyes, and whispery voice sometimes but I still enjoyed his time as Will.

But based on storyline and airtime, Will is the primary focus of WilSon...

I like CM and thought he really did well in the role. He finally made Will into a real character rather than just Lumi's kid. That said, I'm glad they're going with the re-cast. I think Will is an integral character and it would be nice to find an actor that has a little more sexual chemistry with FS.

I agree. I'd like to see Will and Sonny smoulder rather than fizzle. I'd also like them to get some better stories.

Im talking about the hardcore fans of Wilson who only see Massey and Smith in the roles. I honestly think they should find someone who has more chemistry with Freddie. It sometimes feels forced on Chandler's end.

Yep. I'm a chemistry junkie. If the chemistry is there along with interesting storyline, I'll sit through thick and thin, the ridiculous and sublime with a soap couple. Here's hoping the next Will has amazing chemistry with Sonny. And that Sonny finds his earlier vitality.

I wish CM all the best. He's a talented young man.

I think forced is an understatement.

I wish him the best with his education or with his other acting gigs. I just wonder how he was able to get out of his contract four months early. Either there is very little story for his character in 2014 or he has some dirt on someone.

Maybe they found a good recast already.

I wonder how much time will pass in between Chandler's departure and the re-cast. I also wonder if this means anything for Camila/Gabi's suspected departure. Gabi's not a legacy character like Will, but she is the mother of his child. It'll be interesting to see if they re-cast her as well.

NBC might want Chandler for something else, which would explain why he could leave early.

I fell in love with Will during the MarDar era. The writing for Will as complicated, tormented and closeted was one of the high points of their tenure. As much as I love Wilson, I think Chandler probably preferred that version of Will, and I think he's probably been bored with the less complicated version of his character. Chandler seemed to really enjoy it when Will was snarky and in his mother's face. And I think Wilson would have been an even stronger pairing if good guy Sonny had had to come face to face with the shadier side of Will. I can't picture the Will who was EJ's assistant taking the crap Will took from Nick.

If Chandler gets other acting roles, I'll certainly tune in. I think he's very talented. If he wants to major in Chinese and go travel, good for him.
