Michael Logan tweeted on Friday he had a big casting scoop that would make some fans thrilled and others sad. Seems like that was true, as Sean Kanan will soon be exiting his role as AJ on GH and reprising the role fo Deacon on B&B starting in June. TV Guide has more details.
Fantastic news! It’s a shame that he was so underused during his latest stint on GH as I think Kanan’s a very talented actor and really proved his acting chops over the past year as panic-stricken or drunken A.J.. Good for B&B on snatching him up right away!
I’d kill to see a Brooke & Deacon reunion… their affair was the hottest thing to hit daytime in recent memory. And, of course, it would be nice to see Deacon and Hope’s father-daughter relationship really fleshed out this time around, as we didn’t get to see much of that when Deacon crashed Hope and Liam’s wedding in Puglia, Italy (I can’t believe that was already close to two years ago! Damn, time sure flies).
Certainly good move from Brad Bell to rehire him! Deacon was one of the best characters to trouble the Forresters. He has very rich history with Hope, Brooke and Bridget, obviously, and then also Amber, Jackie and Macy, if they decide to use them back again. I can see him very well with Taylor – two recovered alcoholics plus it fits the bill of Tay’s previous relationships with Brooke’s exes – or even Katie/Donna, maybe even Steffy (or maybe not). He would burn the screen in chemistry with Lesli Kay, one of the greatest mysteries is why Felicia isn’t the most important character there. Deacon’s return can be great. I wonder if that means that Little Eric (who is older than Steffy and entire ‘young bloc’ as I recall) will hit town. Maybe some Y&R crossovers – it didn’t happen in a long time.
