There was some talk on the daytime confidential board of a Ridge recast. Some are hoping for Peter Reckel. Others want Vincent Irizarry in the role. Me? I'm hoping it goes to Michael Park (ex Jack, ATWT). Is he too young fOr the role?

Well just about ANYONE would be better than Ronn Moss lol.

Is Flannery gone already?

She's still there. Can't remember her last airdate but I think she's on into December.


If they want to go from one really bad actor to another, then Peter Reckell would be great recast. Not that it would make me start watching the show but I think it would cool if they recast with an actor who could actually make Ridge into a compelling character. I won't be holding my breath!

Susan Flannery is done taping, but she airs through early Dec, though the character dies the week after Thanksgiving.

As long as the guy they hired for Ridge looks old enough to be a parent to 20 somethings and isn't odd when in scenes with KKL or Hunter Tylo..it would be kind of tolerable.

That said regardless on Ronn's acting it will be hard to see someone else as Ridge because I don't have the visual memories of them in the stories.

i saw susan was on the front page of yahoo yesterday so i thought maybe she was gone this week. I may tune in for her final scenes. I havent watched regularly in a long time but i did start on day 1 with the show so i kinda feel like i should see her off.

Susan Flanneryy has been doing some incredible acting in her last sl. It's hard to believe that one of the last Daytime divas will be gone soon. If you do watch, jbrr, be sure to have the Kleenex handy.

Flannery's last day is Monday, I think. It's great that they're giving her a proper send off but it's a little too tearjerker-ish for my taste. My fanwank fantasy is that they had brought Deveney Dixon back to get her final revenge on Stephanie, leaving a cloud of mystery around whether Stephanie is really dead or not. Could have been so exciting! I don't like that Stephanie's death is looking so final, as I think it's going to leave a gaping hole in the canvas of the show.
