Log in to Reply californiaguy888 January 26, 2010 I am glad for Kurt M. He was undervalued on GL during the last few years on the show. As for ATWT….. Wow… If the idiots in charge won’t bring back fan favorites, then why not write a story for Eileen Fulton’s Lisa ? Log in to Reply tml January 26, 2010 I agree with all….I think at this point in time ATWT should be using it’s current cast and wrapping things up in a great way instead of adding to the cast. Log in to Reply troymcclure January 26, 2010 I love my GL vets so I’m glad to see them on the canvas but this is not how you wrap up a show. Log in to Reply beingdrew January 26, 2010 Great to see some GL actors land in Oakdale but I find it curious that with 5 months left to go with filming there hasen’t been a single hint or spoiler about closing story lines..in fact quite the opposite. Seems like World Turns is bringing on new younger characters…almost like they are trying to boost their 18-49 demo. Is it possible they have struck a deal with another network but part of the deal includes refocusing storylines to younger characters (i.e Mick, Casey, Allison, Luke, Noah, Dr. Reid) ? I know it’s a long shot but if it’s not picked up it’s going to be a rushed finale and I just don’t trust Goutman to wrap up World Turns properly. :( Log in to Reply appleridge January 26, 2010 Kurt should go back to GH as Ned since Wally Kurth is busy at DAYS Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott January 26, 2010 It seems everyone but Goutman and Passanante get it that the show is ending soon. I have loved Kurt since Ned was banging Wendy Masters on GH but in this case I don’t think any new characters are necessary. Let’s tell story with who you already have. Please.

But I look forward to seeing KM again on daytime…And that’s a great idea for KM to go back to GH……I totally forgot he was Ned! Log in to Reply josser January 27, 2010 Congratulations to Kurt! I’m all for GL actors earning a little extra pocket change. This sounds like a quickie role. However, given the show only has 4 months of shooting left, I’d prefer if ATWT dumped its planned stories and used the remaining time to bring back fan favorites in meaningful storylines. Unfortunately, according to Nelson Branco, Chris Goutman is back to his mischief and pushing storylines worthy of cancellation. Say what you will about Ellen Wheeler, she at least did try to give fans cameos and walk-ons from beloved ex-castmembers.
