    I don’t think he should have been recasted, but he has, so I hope the actor is good/ up to par.

    What I would really like to see from Will or Sonny at this point would be for one of them to become a bit more ruthless and somewhat of a power player in the Salem business world. So perhaps this recasting will shake things up in a good way for them.

    Freddie Smith is the real winner here. Without Will I don’t see how Sonny could have stayed viable and on the front-burner. Now their storyline can continue, and since Kristen is leaving, I predict the front-burner will be mostly occupied by Wilson and EJami.

    While I love the Will/Sonny pairing, this is hardly a deathblow because, let’s be honest, CM has been on autopilot for A LONG TIME now; Freddie Smith has been carrying the couple and the story for awhile IMO. Frankly, I’m excited to see someone come into the role who might actually invest their time and hard work into it rather than appear disconnected and uninterested because story wasn’t written to their liking(and it’s well documented in interviews that CM wasn’t happy when the writers decided to pair Will with Sonny romantically). Still, good luck to CM, hopefully he can find a role that he feels he can invest his whole heart into.

    Drew Garrett was the first person I thought of as a good recast, because of his blonde hair and blue eyes, not to mention the fact that he’s a pretty good actor, also.

    Haha, funnily enough that came to mind seconds after I typed the question. Not sure if I count him as it was the most pathetic gay storyline in the history of TV.

    I don’t understand the outcry for CM’s departure. He lacks consistency. Granted he is gorgeous, a perfect casting for Sami’s son and shines when a scene calls for intensity but on other days his acting is just disappointing. However I would still prefer him over anyone else because I have grown to love the character. Sometime I even wonder how the hell Sami and Lucas ended having a son as naïve as Will.

    I very much doubt that Alison Sweeney, the show’s most valued performer, would let them cast either of those two geezers as her son. :)

    I suspect it will be someone who is relatively new and unknown to daytime.

    I am so tired of stupid cops!! Check Vargas’s phone records/Theresa’s phone/fingerprints in his apartment……. Vargas coulda been a great major hunky character that they shipped off so Theresa and Chad would have a storyline….at least the Salem PD should check the facts and stop acting stupid.
