Too bad AMC didn't ask him to come back as Alec McIntyre...that show is in desperate need of an old school corporate villain type.

Grant would have been great as a recast Tucker McCall on The Young & the Restless.

Grant is way to young to play Tucker.

^ Perhaps, but as great as GA is, would you really mind? I know I wouldn't.

@Daniel St. John: Actually AMC (I would say) is not in need of one. If we are going for what is happening today then an old school corporate villain is so 1980's and 90's. Especially in Pine Valley.

Keeping with the times, he could be cast as an Angel Investor from the Silicon Valley, whose rival investment in Cortland Electronics threatens David Hayward's plans as Pete would not be so dependent on David's money to turn CE around.

That would be a more contemporary use of the actor.

A guy creating mobile device apps and the teen set saying shit every other word doesn't make AMC some newfangled revolutionary reinvention of the soap operas genre.
There are two big companies in Pine Vally and Alec was a sneaky corporate wheeler dealer...that type of character fits in any soap at any time whether its daytime, prime time or online.

So glad to see Grant working again! He's too talented not to be. Miss him as Phillip on Guiding Light.
