Love Eric Winter and I totally agree Kevin/Jason were IT. B&S made a huge mistake not signing him to contract.

Eric had already made a pilot (Viva Laughlin or whatever it was called) before he did his guest role on B&S. They couldn't have signed him, as it was very likely the pilot was going to be picked up.

I never knew why they cast him considering the likelihood of him only doing a few episodes.

Eric is handsome and charismatic but I thought he was very awkward on B&S and I saw no chemistry with Matthew Rhys, which was especially glaring since Matthew was amazing with Luke Macfarlane and even with boring Jason Lewis. I think he made the right career decision leaving and I was not too sad to see his perfect and not all that interesting character leave.

I'm loving so much casting news this year! Could it be this will be an actual great year for TV?
