HomeTVCoronation StreetCould Jesse Metcalfe Appear on Coronation Street? Luke Kerr April 28, 2009 Coronation Street, Desperate Housewives, Passions 13 Comments Former Passions heartthrob and Desperate Housewives’ hunk Jesse Metcalfe is in talks with producers of Coronation Street, according to published reports in the UK. Reportedly Metcalfe is a fan of the show, whose executives "have recently been toying with the idea of breaking into the US market with the long running soap. Links with figures such as Metcalfe may help facilitate this." Would daytime soap stars, such as Metcalfe, be enough to entice you into trying Coronation Street if it aired in the US?

I’m not really a JM fan (I haven’t seen him in anything) but I’d be curious to see an American on a UK soap. Log in to Reply elvara April 28, 2009 Noooooooooooooooo!! I don’t want JM anywhere near Coronation Street! Log in to Reply blake3b April 28, 2009 He was a hot boy and now he’s a hot man. Too bad he’s a jerk in person. Log in to Reply minipitbull007 April 28, 2009 JM is so hot I loved him on Desperate Housewives and he can act. So yes I would at least give it a shot if the show aired in the US. Oh and love the pic of him as well. Log in to Reply petitejolie April 28, 2009 Everything about Jesse Metcalfe screams doucebag. Log in to Reply troymcclure April 29, 2009 He is such a douche. Talk about ruining a career, not that going on Coronation street is a stepdown from what he is doing now…whatever that is. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens April 29, 2009 Isn’t Coronation Street on pair with our soaps, in terms of viewers and popularity? Why in high hell doesn’t he just go play Dante on GH and call it a horse race? Log in to Reply troymcclure April 29, 2009 I think it’s because he is doing the entire line up of the brittish girl band Girls aloud. Now if someone introduces him to the pussycat dolls, he might go for GH Log in to Reply blake3b April 29, 2009 Douchebag was the first thing came to mind, but I wanted to be nice and say jerk lol. Though he’s hot in the pic, everytime I see him in these manly pictures I think he’s trying to cover up being gay. Remember how he looked on Passions? And he sure had those eyebrows tight! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane April 29, 2009 Jesse was so good on Passions. Charity and Miguel were my 2nd fave couple. He shouldn’t have left…maybe we would’ve gotten Charguel in the end if he’d stayed. Log in to Reply Johnathon April 29, 2009 @Jamey– I dont even know really where to start lol, Okay let’s talk quality. Would you rather go to the UK, be on an amazingly well written show, where Vets are on everyday, characters and storylines are beloved and people’s eating habits are centered around what time your show comes on. Or would you want to go to General Hospital? Now ratings are a tricky thing to talk about, as you will see in a post i am about to make about Neighbours breaking the 1 million viewers mark for the first time since 2007 in AUS that might sound like a really small number in comparison, but Neighbours well in other markets + One million viewers is a lot for the Australian Market (Neighbours was the 16th most watched show in Australian, Home and Away the other soap was 10th most), so its really hard to say "Oh well Neighbours has only a million viewers so what makes it so great?" when that million viewers would be like Ugly betty ratings in the US by comparison lol. Its a really different market, the soaps in the UK are still loved, they are a lot better written then the US Soaps and totally worth checking out. Anyways Coronation Street is in the USA, its on Amazon On Demand, hopefully it will make it on to our screens but hey this is better then nothing. Now is Jesse enough to make me tune in? No, but I am already watching so it will be nice to see him if he does infact show up there, this was reported in a tabloid so who knows if it will happen lol. Log in to Reply Dariclone April 29, 2009 I love both shows/ That being said, I don’t want him anywhere near Corrie! I liked him on Passions and DH, he *is8 a good actor, but he’s too much of a jerk in real life for me to wish him on Corrie. Such a shame, I had a crush on him when I was younger. Log in to Reply Johnathon April 29, 2009 I have kinda not paid much attention to the real life crap, the only thing i know about him is that he got drunk and almost killed himself lol. I am trying to figure out what storyline he would have, the only thing that really comes to mind is something to do with Maria… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
