Log in to Reply bishbay January 24, 2011 I only watched the last week or so with his sleeping with Liza, but for my money he’s the best younger actor on any of the soaps I watch (OLTL, Y&R, B&B). This is a loss, but I think he’ll move on to bigger things. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 January 24, 2011 I don’t blame him for bouncing. We don’t know how long soaps have left. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 January 24, 2011 Finn seems to be taking the SAME advice that he gives to Damon: Leaving the sinking ship that is becoming AMC and MAKING something of his life/career!!!! Until AMC gets new producers/writers, it’s never going to get much better than it is now, and that’s a DAYUM shame!!!!! Nathan- I don’t think Finn has the right “look” to play Phillip Kiriakis. Besides, Jay Kenneth Johnson seems to leave every time the freaking WIND blows. He’ll be BROKE and back knocking on Ken Corday’s door within the next six months. I think they’d be better off keeping the role offscreen until that time comes. Log in to Reply Nathang1983 January 24, 2011 Alstonboy: I think you’re right. He does look slightly like Jay Kenneth Johnson, but he may not have the “look.” Frankly, I’m ready for a rest from Stephanie, Phillip, and Nathan, although Mark Hapka is a great actor and I will miss him being on the show, being a Horton and all. Log in to Reply luverica January 24, 2011 I’m going to really miss Finn. I thought he was the best young actor they had on there since Michael B. Jordan (Reggie Montgomery) plus he certainly was easy on the eyes. When they look good and can act, that’s a really, really nice combination. I wish him much future success. Log in to Reply TV Gord January 25, 2011 So what if he didn’t feel like Damon was grown up. Damon sounds like a chip off the ol’ Tad, to me! Log in to Reply Dariclone January 25, 2011 Good for Finn. He’ll go on to have a huge career but it’ll the AMC fans loss. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
