Nah, I don't think so. Brant is good, but he would be a better recast for Chad than Will. I don't see that.

The guy who plays Brent (I don't know his name and all the Brants and Brent's gets weird), he physically looks like Will but I didn't think he was that strong an actor. But I thought he was deliberately cast to look like Will/CM to get Will's jealousy senses fired up.

I think that they should get him back to be serious interloper for Wilson. I miss him.

I'd be thrill to death if Brant is the new Will. As for whether he is a strong actor or not, I don't think he was on the show long enough to determine this but from what I have seen I have no doubt that he could do the role some justice.

I think Chandler and Freddie have great "friendship" chemistry and they could manufacture charm and intimacy together when the script called for but it wasn't there naturally for me.
exactly Friendship chemistry they have no romantic chemistry whatsoever
But Freddie said that with Will its love but with Brian it was just lust so he was filling a void he lost when he and Will broke up. In love they don't have to be all over eachother, its the little things that matter. With lust you have to always be proving something but with WilSon you know its love the looks and the way the hold eachother. Freddie and Chandler play it certain ways at certain times when you can see and feel the passion but not all the time and that is okay. I loved them together and I hope the New Will and Sonny/Freddie have great chem and they play well off eachother, and we see the love and lust with them also.
yeah with Brian it was just lust no one say different Romantic doesn't necessarily means sex. People that are in love are aloud to show lust two with WilSon it never that it is dry flat dull boring etc :sleep: . Their intimate scenes are awkward as hell :yawnz:

Probably nothing but what if Days brought Brant D back to play Will? I know he played Brian but the chemistry between him and Freddie was so incredible that I'd be fine with it. Die the hair blonde, we know the guy can act and the chemistry for Wilson :shithitfan: .

Probably nothing but two of his tweets today got me wondering


Brant Daugherty @brantdaugherty 3h
excited to start rehearsals today for my next project!

Brant Daugherty @brantdaugherty 1h
Things are about to get so weird


Rehearsals could mean just going over lines and preparing. And it would be kind of weird for him to come back to play Will, when he already played Brian and once auditioned for Will.
kinda agree but just no on him Dyeing is hair blond omg no. I would prefer him back as Brian and they kill of Will Will is so pathetic he hurts my eyes.

Keep in mind that Chandler made the announcement that he was leaving at the Daytime Emmys (Sunday night) and Casey Deidrick filmed his last episode five days later. I think CM had previously told Days he was leaving, possibly around the time that CD told them. I don't think he was angling for a better contract offer. I think he was simply tired of the role and the work schedule. After his performance today, it's no wonder the show decided to recast Will as soon as possible instead of enduring four more months of subpar performances from CM. If he does intend to continue his education and earn a degree, then great. I certainly hope he's successful and he enjoys the experience. I give him at most a year before he's acting again. I suspect he's reviewing TV pilot and movie scripts in between playing in his band with CD.

I know I need to stop and give up hope on this but Brant also tweeted three days ago about it being the end of his latest project saying "that's a wrap". I'm having twitter issues or I'd copy the tweet here.

That tweet coincides perfectly with the timing about there being a "timely discovery of new talent."

I really think Brant could be the Will recast. It's either that or his tweets really are just big coincidences right now :lol: . Days is famous for using the same actors in different roles so why not...

While I would love for Brant to be chosen as the recast Will, I just don't see it happening. I sure hope the hell I am wrong.

Will doesn't have to have blonde hair... The majority of the Will's have had the dark hair... Only reason they cast him with a blonde actor was to try to erase any connection visually to Lucas since BD was being let go

Its the "Ben" character.

Hope that's not the Will recast. He may look the role but he certainly doesn't seem like a good actor based on the reels. I'd be so bummed if this is new Will :shrug: .

I hope the new Will is someone we have not seen before on Days that way it will be a new start it would just remind me that Chandler is not there anymore :(
Someone mentioned Drew Garret I remember him from GH and he was good and when he was recast their was a big uproar over at GH about him and he does favor Chandler with the blonde hair and blue eyes and he's a good actor so maybe. Why are they waiting to tell us who is the replacement. I hope he and Freddie will be good together.

I don't know if I should have done new thread or something but if so, someone else can do it.
Ah, so it is bad, unprofessional behavior on both sides. This was basically a tit for tat, with CM initiating the tit. Based on this article, I can't say I feel sorry for him. It's a hard lesson to learn, but hopefully CM now understands that it's bad form to publicly announce your intended departure, before informing your bosses. The fact it was done in a such a public way added boulder sized salt to the wound.

I'm glad TV Guide did this article. It definitely clears up a lot of things. Most of which we knew, though, so I'll just add this: did they really think back in June that he'd renew his contract? Come on! No young actor in the last couple of years has renewed, he wouldn't have either.

Okay, I agree he probably should have notified the proper people before announcing the news at the Emmys. But this is all just so sad to me. They still could have let him know a tab bit before letting him go. And they could have planned it better story wise because I'm going to absolutely HATE it if there is no time in between Wills. If CM is there one day and the new guy is there the next and we are just supposed to except him and Sonny together, it going to suck. Now I'm hearing things about a triangle. So now I'm thinking they'll break up because it won't be the real Will and Sonny. I'm sad.
