I keep reading that Sara Gilbert is a lead candidate to be the NuAdam.

Fine by me. As long as it's not homophobic Chris Egan or (way-too-old) Trevor St. John.

He just didn't want to play the part of a gay man. I couldn't see MCE playing a lesbian role either. Doesn't make em homophobic.

So if a gay person doesn't want to play a straight part that makes them heterophobic?

Sara Gilbert? I don't think so.
Chris is not homophobic, he just didn't want to kiss another man. I don't want to kiss another woman, doesn't make me homophobic.

Besides the casting description clearly says "Loves Women" so whoever it is won't be kissing any men lol so no need to go off topic! :P

I don't want T.S.J. he played Todd as bland and boring, too laid back, a character that was wild and uncontrollable became a pale, boring version of what it was suppose to be. JM0.

I think the guy who played Jonathan on G.H. would fit right in and he can act. Brandon somebody.

Chris Egan is not homophobic.

Wasn't the issue with CE the overall direction of Adam? Didn't he object to the torture of Ashley?

Oh and I found TSJ BORING as shit. I don't get the appeal of that man. He's a terrible actor, IMO.

Yes Engen had (quite legitimate) concerns beyond Adam "faking the gay " to distract Rafe. The writers torpedoed the character who'd been very compelling up to that point. Engen was very good and I was sorry to see him go.

I don't blame him for leaving especially after they had his character burn what was left of Ashley's miscarried baby in the fireplace. He may also not have been comfortable with the backstage goings on at the show either if he wasn't accepted by the widely rumored cliques that exist there. I can't remember who exactly broke the Chris Egen story but if it's who I'm remembering I can see why the supposed homophobic angle was made such an issue.

Lets all try and share our opinions about this when directed at other members in a respectful manner too.

I believe that's what Mr. Engen said was the reason why he left the show.
Then others alluded the reason being he is a homophobe.

I think they could cast George Clooney (yes I know he is too old. But so was the guy who was fired.)or whoever the young star of the day is and the maniacs would be complaining and crying to "bring the real Adam back ". They refuse to stop with the "It was a setup " delusions on Facebook or in the comments to stories like this one.

Yes it was the soap "journalist " you're thinking of who rose the "homophobia " alarm. That creep heralded the "gay storyline " with Adam and Rafe as some groundbreaking move. He was always sucking up to MABell and Hoagy back then.
