TV Guide Magazine: How do you feel about this triangle? From the get-go it seemed like Jack would end up the odd-man out.
Willey: Well, it ain't over yet! And, actually, now that Krystal [Bobbie Eakes] is involved, it's really more like a big, sloppy, sharply pointed quadrangle. If you look at any of the polls, the fans really want to see Jack and Erica together but the writers don't seem to come up with a story for them as a couple. They're Moonlighting, they're Nick and Nora, as clever and funny as can be, but it's always the Sturm und Drang that carries us away.
TV Guide's Michael Logan chatted with the face of ABC Daytime, Susan Lucci. The All My Children actress gave some tidbits about what's to come with Jackson (Walt Willey), Erica, and Caleb (Michael Nouri).
TV Guide Magazine: Caleb and Erica will agree to work side by side to run Cortlandt. This isn't looking too good for Jack.
Lucci: Oh, no, Erica really wants him! In fact, she notices that Krystal [Bobbie Eakes] is just a little too interested in Jack and that makes Erica even more interested in him. [Laughs] The claws will come out! But, yes, circumstances will force her to work with Caleb. She's ready for a difficult situation but suddenly she has these good feelings about him and she's also holding onto her good feelings about Jack. So there's a real pull. And that's what will begin the triangle.
La Lucci also shared her thoughts on who exactly Erica should be with. READ MORE
It’s so terrific to have you back on Days. Plus, we find Adrienne in a rather fresh kind of romantic triangle with Justin [Wally Kurth] and Hope [Kristian Alfonso]. There’s no villain here, no one to hate or resent. It’s radically adult.
It makes a great dynamic and I’m hoping they’ll keep it playing. Adrienne and Hope are friends and they’re both good girls and Justin’s a good guy. No one is being manipulative. Hope didn’t have the same feelings for Justin that he had for her, so she brought Adrienne back to Salem, thinking he was just substituting her for Adrienne. She tried to do a good thing by reuniting them. Usually in a triangle the ex shows up out of nowhere—or comes back from the dead!—but here it’s just three nice people trying to do the right thing.
Jackson Montgomery is back, and we've got him! On today's episode of the Daytime Confidential podcast, Luke and Jamey talk to All My Children veteran and all around nice guy Walt Willey, who recently reprised his signature role as Erica Kane's (Susan Lucci) most enduring lover on the sudser.
This Friday, April 9 at 9 pm Willey will be appearing at SoCal's hottest spot for sketch comedy, ACME Comedy Theatre, where he will be hosting "Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role". Willey offers DC listeners a preview of his upcoming show, and gives his hilarious reaction to having witnessed the infamous Kato Kaelin hosting the show when he first visited ACME.
"He's held up good since the white van days," Willey quips.
Then the discussion shifts, of course, to what it's like for Willey to be back in Pine Valley— by way of Los Angeles instead of New York— and to be working again with the likes of Rebecca Budig, Vincent Irizarry, Julia Barr, and of course the unforgettable Susan Lucci. It's an interview Pine Valley lovers and comedy buffs alike won't wanna miss!
If you are in the SoCal area be sure to go see Walt Willey in ACME Comedy Theatre's "Unscripted Hollywood Dream Role" this Friday night at 9 pm. ACME Comedy Theatre is located at 135 N. La Brea Ave Hollywood, CA 90036. For everyone else, you can watch the show being streamed live at www.acmecomedy.com. We will also be posting a reminder with the link on the blog before the show. Also, be sure to visit Walt Willey's official website Willey World.
