I don’t think they understand the Chill factor! This duo have all the chemistry that Bo and Hope and Patch and Kayla and Roman and Marlena had. In fact they remind me of Jack and Jennifer my fav Days couple. Days supercouples have always had some sort of controversy about them. From Doug and Julie (step father and daughter) to Jack and Jennifer (rapist and a rape victum). We Days viewers are not put off like some other shows viewers. Go for it! Come on execs be brave! Log in to Reply jlafferty23 March 9, 2011 LOL! What a great interview! Casey and Chandler are actually really funny! Great Job Jamey and Luke! Log in to Reply Jon March 9, 2011 Eagerly awaitin’ me some Chill….the pairings with Gabi and Abby (anyone norice the names haven’t been said together on Days?) are goin’ nowhere. Although Will would be cute with Gabi’s HERMANO…… Log in to Reply angelskies March 10, 2011 Thanks for the interview! Love the idea of CHILL and wish Days would have the balls to go there! There are so many great storytelling opportunities there and it would involve a majority of the cast in umbrella storytelling. NBC should give Casey and Chandler webisodes for their bromantic adventures since they are really funny together and on twitter. Log in to Reply Dariclone March 10, 2011 Thanks for this interview, guys! Casey and Chandler seem like real life best friends too! I;m glad their cool with the Chill fanbase. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now March 10, 2011 DOOL is missing out if they don’t just get it together and make it Chill for everyone! I should be doing actual work for my job, but am trolling for video’s instead, and found this little 50 second vid of Chill on YouTube. It speaks VOLUMES of what should be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFEXS2Ycrrg ~Take some time to CHILL in 2011~ Log in to Reply GaryJr March 11, 2011 CHILL CHILL CHILL CHILL CHILL!!! It would be another media firestorm–they’d be stupid NOT to go there. Log in to Reply BetseyD March 11, 2011 So agreed with all of the “Chill” comments! I noticed the chemistry, right off the bat, and even my 85 year mother noticed it! I just think that DOOL would be too chicken-shit to ever go there. Log in to Reply a308936 April 4, 2011 Okay. I’m all for it. Also, I’ll bite… they kinda look like Van Hansis & Jake Silbermann when Nuke first started out. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
