Wishful Casting: Dynasty — The Next Generation
I'd cast recurring Ringer hunk Justin Bruening as L.B., who now goes simply by Blake. The gorgeous actor already has experience playing someone related to John James (Little Blake's dad Jeff Colby), as James played Jeff Martin, the uncle of Bruening's character Jamie on All My Children.
Unlike his cousin Danny, Blake Colby has thought of nothing else besides one day seizing control of Denver Carrington to merge it with his father's family firm Colby Co, thanks in large part to lifelong manipulation on the part of his malevolent grandmother Alexis.
Things get off to a deliciously vile start when Alexis orders Blake to seduce Ayana and get it on video . Alexis hopes to blackmail the young woman into convincing Danny to sell his shares of Denver Carrington to Alexis — and Alexis alone. If Ayana doesn't comply, Alexis will upload the tape onto the web. Not to be outdone, Sammy Jo realizes Blake is working with Alexis—and keeping her out of the loop—and decides to seduce the truth out of Fallon's son. Get ready for someone to get their head dunked in a pool while wearing Bob Mackie!
If it's one person who could have warned Blake about trusting Alexis, it's his uncle Adam (Gordon Thompson), blacksheep of the Carringtons, who also returns for Blake's funeral with his own nefarious plot in mind. He's dummied up documentation stating that Blake and Alexis' divorce wasn't legal and wants his mother to throw in with him in contesting the will!
