He airs in Dec, but we don’t know who he will be playing yet. If only he was replacing Shawn Christian like how he did on ATWT haha. Good news regardless though.October 31, 2013 at 10:31 am #425424
^^^ Ha! Oh, what fun that would be! Dr. Dan’s omnipresence on the show is really testing my patience these days.
But, getting serious now, this is wonderful news and I really liked Mark Collier on ATWT. How great is it that we’re getting back all our daytime alums from past shows?!
I’m wondering if Collier is their pick for the casting call they’d put out a few months back in the summer, who we’d suspected would be a love interest for Hope. If that were true, I could definitely see him sharing excellent chemistry with Kristian Alfonso.October 31, 2013 at 12:39 pm #425425
Awesome news. And, yes, it would be even better news if Collier were replacing Shawn Christian. I just do not get his appeal. The hair alone, the wrinkly old face, it’s just too much. Plus, he’s a front burner character.November 1, 2013 at 8:37 am #425426
Yes, this is pretty exciting. I liked Mark Collier a lot on ATWT. I was wondering who he’ll be playing also, and alokin, you make a great point. I hadn’t thought of him as that casting call from a few months ago, but the timing makes sense, and I think he’d have great chemistry with Kristian Alfonso. Once Kristen is gone, DAYS is going to need to a) cycle another female up to the frontburner and b) do something exciting to make up for the loss of what’s been a really exciting storyline. FINALLY giving us some closure on the Bo situation and involving Hope with a new man could accomplish both.November 1, 2013 at 8:38 am #425427
LOL at the thought of Collier replacing Shawn Christian, btw. I had that thought also, and I guess it’s natural considering he did replace him at ATWT and Daniel’s been OTT irritating lately.November 12, 2013 at 10:43 am #425428
Great pickup for DAYS!November 12, 2013 at 11:47 am #425429
Dr. Daniel is gross. He looks like a depressed clown on his day off after a bender. How can anyone see this as appealing…especially when Casey Moss is in the same scene. I don’t care that Dr. Daniel is ugly. What I care about is that the Days writers have, for years, written him as some romantic hero. As I’ve pointed out before, he’s been paired with a dozen women since joing the show and none of them have had much fan support. Jennifer can do better, but then again, with a recast who has chemistry with the other actors and who doesn’t look like he just got out of rehab, it might work.November 12, 2013 at 1:18 pm #425430
This is fabulous news. I just started to watch GH only because Maura West joined. And now this. Once ATWT was cancelled, I swore off Daytime soaps for good, but with all these ATWT alums being casted, I might be jumping back in!
