HomeTVAll My ChildrenJeff Branson, The New Shayne Lewis Luke Kerr September 23, 2008 19 Comments We were wondering how long it would take for a show to scoop up Jeff Branson after he left All My Children. Now we know. Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Guiding Light has cast Branson as the new Shayne Lewis. It should be interesting to see what kind of dynamic Branson’s Shayne has with Kim Zimmer’s Reva in comparison to Tom Pelphrey’s Jonathon. 19 Responses daisyclover1938 September 23, 2008 Uhm…interesting…I have to have time to process this, I think I’m a little disappointed though – my dream was to have Josh Duhon (ex-Logan, GH) in the role Log in to Reply season1217 September 23, 2008 This is bittersweet. I’m happy he’s found work but on Guiding Light? I don’t know. But I will definitely tune in more to the show if he’s on. And it seems while DAYS is picking up the stars of Passions, ABC and CBS continue to trade stars like baseball cards.

Even though I don’t watch GL I look forward to hearing everyone’s feed back on how he is doing.

Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens September 23, 2008 Shayne has romantic history with Marina and Lizzie so this could be just the shot in the arm GL needs! Log in to Reply AnthonyL September 23, 2008 They must be going for a edgier Shayne. JB is a good actor…. should be interesting to watch. Log in to Reply season1217 September 23, 2008 A shot in the arm?! The shot they need is the shot that Uma Thurman got in Pulp Fiction!:) Log in to Reply Luke Kerr September 23, 2008 "A shot in the arm?!

Like what season1217 said it is bittersweet. I can’t stomach GL these days so it’s sad he’s not on another show…but I’m thrilled that he’s got work on daytime again. He’s an incredible actor and I wish him all the luck. Log in to Reply Ilovethesoaps September 23, 2008 Oh my my my!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is gorgeous! Log in to Reply Melodie September 23, 2008 It looks like we have a tug of war of actors between All My Children and Guiding Light. So far AMC is winning 3-1. Now, on the the recast business. I think Jeff Branson as Shayne is VERY interesting. I don’t know the actor but I’ve heard that he is very talented. Guiding Light can use all the talented actors they can get. He should be a good addition to the show. I just hate how we have to wait until December to see him. Oh well. Oh yeah, HE’S HOT!!!! Woooohooooooo!!! Log in to Reply Jammylove September 23, 2008 OMG HES HOTTT YAYAY HOT SHANE maybe for Marina.. until Cyrus stops going after women with kids haha ! Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones September 23, 2008 This news makes me quite happy. Perhaps this is a signal that Telenext/CBS is getting serious about pumping a little more money into GL. Log in to Reply hunterforrester September 23, 2008 Finally they announced it. I wrote about this MONTHS ago, but had to keep my mouth shut. Log in to Reply weareclouds September 23, 2008 More proof that there’s a portal in the Martin Attic that leads to CBS. Log in to Reply rcs1970 September 23, 2008 This is a great move by GL. Now they just need to bring in Kelli Giddish (ex-Di Kirby; AMC) as Marah Lewis, and either Sabine Singh (ex-Greenlee) or Cady McClain (ex-Dixie) as Harley Cooper and the show may stand a chance. Log in to Reply THEBEST September 24, 2008 Cady as Harley? HELL NO! Dixie is alive, dammit!!!!!!! Kelli could be an interesting Harley…. It’s just good to hear some good news about GL. ***///Living In The World Of Soaps Since 1985\\\*** Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens September 23, 2008 LOL I haven’t seen Pulp Fiction I will have to rent it now!
