there was so much possibility for Deacon on the show. they should've paired him with Steffy just to keep her away from Liam and maybe earn points with Hope in the process.
big middle finger to whoever it was on the show that didn't like him coming back!
Sean Kanan back to GH as AJ, who's with me?
I have never seen an actor hired at a show and fired from a show in one months time! This was lightening fast! Dang!
Seriously doubt that Sean was "fired". More than likely it was
only a (very) short term guest appearance.
Who knows, perhaps, he'll pop-up from time-to-time in the future,
if the story-line requires it. Unless, of course, they "kill" him.
Even then he could always "haunt" Dollar Bill or Brooke or Hope. lol
Soaps are so vanilla these days. For the first time since 1994, I'm not watching any daytime soaps smh...
Rumors are rampant that Ronn Moss doesn't like the guy and had him canned. It's disgusting that a hack actor has that much pull on this show. Mr Moss couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.
YEah I also heard that Ronn MOss thing...and I pray that isn't the case. Ronn Moss is the reason why B&B isn't that GREAT today. I mean, I still enjoy the show, but Ronn Moss is thee absolute WORST actor on the show. As a matter of fact, I'd say he's worse than Texas Battle...he's one of the worst actors in daytime right now...smh. I also don't think KKL wanted Deacon back on B&B. I don't think it was personal on her part, but moreso she also has her head up her ass and doesn't see the significance of the Deacon characer on the show because she's scared we'll all remember that just last week Brooke Logan was the slut from the valley.
Anyway, I'm over it. I don't expect much from these shows anymore...I don't even care. I'll just continue writing my own B&B and Y&R and pretending they are airing.
Soaps arn't edgy and exciting anymore at all. The genre is all but dead at this point thanks to ridiculous hack storytelling. Stoney I'd love to read your stuff! I can't even say how disappointed I am that they wouldn't keep Sean Kanan. I can see how KKL might not want him long term. Breacon cost Brooke a lot of fans. I can't hit any board without people mentioning how they haven't liked Brooke since Breacon. I don't think Ronn has anything to do with this one. I hear they are good friends and working on a project together.
I'm with you!!! Would love for Kanan to come back as AJ. But would he want to?
Anyway I've heard that apparently KKL didn't want him back. She also reacted very strange when she was asked about the Deacon story in an interview with Dayplayer Dish.
It's a shame that B&B didn't keep him. What wasted potential. It could have been so good and B&B could have told stories for him for years rather than repeating this love triangle crap with the same people in the same style. It's disappointing!
I think he would go back to GH as AJ!
IIRC, he butted heads or something to that effect with the writing/producing staff at the time, and i think none of them are employed there anymore.
but MANY fans prefer & love & think of Billy Warlock as AJ Quartermaine.
From what I have heard it was specifically Katherine Kelly Lang who was against Deacon coming back all this time, and actually that Ronn Moss was "all for it" - because that would finally haven given Bridge a storyline Ronn is waiting for.
That's what I heard too. Ronn saw it as an opportunity and KKL got upset when she heard that Sean would be returning.
Love the clip of Latrice Royale!
This is unfortunate, but I would rather see Billy Warlock as AJ than Sean. Billy always played the role much better, in my opinion. Good luck to him anyway.
It is truly a shame they are letting Sean go.He could have been in so many stories.Of course Hope's,but he could have brought Amber back to the correct age circle she should be involved with.
If Deacon teamed up with Amber again,Rick could have tried to keep an eye on them,plus maybe a little jealousy.It may have added a new dimension to the Rick/Caroline/Thomas triangle.It would have driven Brooke crazy,running around trying to keep Deacon out of her kid's lives,plus her own.
Again,the writers on all these shows are stuck on recycling the same stories.From some of the fan's posts here and elsewhere,there are new ideas and stories for our characters.
Agreed. The days when I would almost panic because a real-life event would cause me to miss my soaps are long gone.
If it is indeed the case regarding Ronn Moss and KKL, that coupled with Y&R and the rumors about Eric Braeden and MS-- this has got to be the main reason why the current crop of soaps are so anemic in storylines. If these actors continue on their self important way, I guarantee you, it will crush these soaps and they will soon cease to exist. The writing is often bad but these 'stars' are not helping things, they are oppressing creativity and blunting and spontaneity.
No wonder reality shows are eating their lunch for the past decade!
I guess TPTB are just going to try and wait the Reality shows out until somehow Reality dies out. People are tiring of reality in bits and piece but..well, this is assuming that all the soaps don't all get cancelled first!
Late one night, I happened to leave the TV on and saw a glimpse of a Courtroom Show I'd never seen before and just from the few minutes I saw (I didn't watch the entire program), I saw a scenario play out that only made me think--
THE SOAPS SHOULD BE WRITING SCENARIOS LIKE THIS!!
An OLDER MAN MARRIED TO a YOUNGER WOMAN finds out he is the reason she cannot get Pregnant. He is desperate for a Child. He sees his next door neighbor, a YOUNG VIRILE POST GRAD with a LOT OF DEBT and PROPOSES A DEAL. He wants the Young Man to Impregnate his WIFE, (NATURALLY). Over his Wife's PROTESTATIONS, he sets up APPOINTMENTS for the WIFE and the YOUNG STUD to RENDEZVOUS. The WIFE, frustrated with her HUSBAND begins MEETING with the YOUNG MAN.
IN THE END, the HUSBAND discovers that NOT ONLY is his Wife NOT PREGNANT, but she has been HAVING AN AFFAIR with the YOUNG STUD. She also declares that the MARRIAGE IS OVER because her Husband REFUSES TO LISTEN. The Husband tries to SUE the Young Man for the Money He Shelled out but in court, who shows up as Witness on Behalf of the Young Man? Yup...WIFEY!
In Conclusion, the Husband does NOT get his Money Back and doesn't contest the ruling, hoping he can still work things out and save his Marriage. The Wife, who has ended her affair with the Young Stud, is not so sure the Marriage can be saved.
All this from a Non Scripted Courtroom show?? Why aren't the soaps doing this sort of Thing???
AMEN! None of the shows have any daring left in them and every time any of them get close to doing something interesting, like bringing Deacon back to raise hell, they wuss out in record time and dump the whole thing. That is the real reason why soaps are dying, they don't have the guts to give people any compelling reason to watch anymore.
MsAgent, I don't blame the actors. It's almost instinctive for actors to be selfish. If they perceive someone else's popularity as a threat to their own, why wouldn't they try to combat that?
The question is why would TPTB allow any actor to dictate storylines and casting choices?
He was the only reason I started watching again. They give some actors way too much pull. Is KKL going to quit? No. Do their jobs and shut it. I will take AJ no matter what face he has. With Stoney,the stories in my head ate better.
I can honestly tell you that it doesn't work that way in Theatre, which is probably why many actors cannot do it. Egos will be trounced. And shows starring Divas/Divos and backstage manoeuvrings quickly dissipate and go away. That must be a film and TV thing. It would simply be unsustainable in the Theater. Unless you're doing a One Man/One Woman show, you must work as a Unit or it doesn't work at all. Viva La Theatre, is all I can say!
Well, there is some good storytelling going on at Days right now with the "Who Shot Stefano?" story. There have been so many beats playing throughout that one. I think I'm fairly sure who killed Stefano (and no, I won't say either). I'll let you folks figure that one out. It's one of 3 people.
Who cares who shot Stefano??? I don't believe for one second that he's really dead. So what's the point. We had Sami shooting EJ, Will shooting EJ ... I don't care who shoots who on that show anymore. It's all pretty pointless if it has become such a joke.
And the Stefano story is pretty bad. Suddenly Stefano is responsible for anything. Suddenly we are to believe that Will had that conversation with Sonny on purpose, after he told Marlena weeks and weeks that he doesn't want Rafe to find out. It's stupid!
Don't even let me start with Stefano being not EJ's father and being responsible for Lexie's tumor. STUPID!
Daytime soaps really are dying because people get caught up to much with the behind the scenes drama. They can't concentrate on what's going on on-screen anymore.
Y&R plays favors to Eric Braeden and Michelle Stafford, while throwing others like Sharon Case under the bus. B&B now did the same thing with Sean Kanan.
The industry is tainted with power plays and honestly I wouldn't wanna write for these shows if I can't control what I'm writing. Braeden has friends at CBS so you know to better not mess with him, Katherine Kelly Lang is B&B's international star, so you better don't upset her.
Of course producers, writers and the other powers that be should be in charge, but sadly they aren't.
This is just totally ridiculous (but I'm not surprised) this revolving door in/out over at Bell is nauseating.
... rumours are always fun.
... but maybe he could return to Y&R for a while where he and Ms. Bell (Christine) could trade crazy eye hints and advice with each other.
What is KKL's issue with Sean Kanan?
I think he may be headed back to Y&R - at least thats what I heard months ago. These people over at CBS are nutcarackers!!! I hope he does go back to Y&R and gets Nikki drinking again. Away from that bore Jack Abbott. Victor is right about him.
Deacon & Brooke have too much chemistry. It de-values Bridge's worth. KKL loves Bridge and thinks they are "incomparable" soap Royalty. So if Deacon has more chemistry the fans are gonna want him with Brooke more than Ridge. That's why.
ITA! You took the words right out of my mouth concerning Days and Stefano. First of all, everyone knows he's not even gonna DIE - so why would anyone want to invest in the storyline, let alone be interested in it?
TOO MUCH chemistry? When soaps are getting canceled left and right?
Once again I'll repeat Jamey 'End of show moves!'
(At least in America, I know Bold is bank overseas)
I can't watch this show anymore. I've been a fan of Sean's since he was AJ on GH.
If he isn't the shot in the arm this show needs I don't know.
The writing is horrible, and mind boggling with its repetition.
I tried to catch up a week ago and had to listen to Steffy say three times in 5 five minute conversation that Liam tore up the annulment papers.
Do they think the audience is a bunch of toddlers?
And if I have to listen to Bill explain his hatred for Hope in the exact same way to Justin or his secretary -
It's like groundhog day on this show.
When does Dallas start again?
