HomeTVAll My ChildrenColin Egglesfield IN, Daniel Cosgrove OUT for Brothers & Sisters Flashback Eppy Jamey Giddens February 18, 2010 8 Comments Look for All My Children and Melrose Place alum Colin Egglesfield to likely portray the role of a young William Walker on Brothers & Sisters’ upcoming flashback episode. EOnline first broke the news that Egglesfiield would be replacing one of the previously cast Rewind Walkers. Speculation is Egglesfield is going in for fellow soapster Daniel Cosgrove, who had previously been tapped to play William. I have to say, this is a good move. Egglesfield definitely brings to mind what I would envision for the cocky, philandering jerkoff who cheated on my Gidget with that tramp Holly Harper! 8 Responses kiyote72 February 19, 2010 dont agree with this recast…while yes colin is prettier – the shock is that nora’s steady cheated for years….if you look at the 2 above – you would suspect colin not daniel. bad move!

Cosgrove, ma dahling, make it up to me and go to another soap after that (no DOOL, Y&R,B&B or AMC) Log in to Reply Set February 19, 2010 Can’t talk… too busy Shaking and Crying… So happy, this news makes me… Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 February 19, 2010 If they want a pretty boy, Egglesfield is, in my opinion, "prettier" than Cosgrove. If they want a complete jerk with no redeeming qualities, I also think that Egglesfield has that "bad boy" thing down to a science. However, if they want an actor with sense of humor, sensitivity and charm, I think that Cosgrove would have been the way to go. Either way, I love it when ex-soap stars get hired on primetime…even if it is short-term!!

But who isn’t wasted on ATWT? I think he’d make a great Joey Buchanan on OLTL especially not that Kelly’s back. Kelly belongs with Joey, not Kevin. Kevin is more Cassie’s type. Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing him as a young William. I love B&S.

Log in to Reply dsrbroadway February 21, 2010 Tom Skerritt played the present William Walker, and Daniel’s looks and demeanor remind me more of Tom. Colin, acting talent aside, doesn’t have that William Walker feel. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
