I just hope his storyline isn’t Burton’s supporting player. If anything we all know it should be the other way around. Log in to Reply DARON November 15, 2013 All I can say is YAWN. Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. November 15, 2013 He can console Nikki after Dylan rejects her… Log in to Reply sillytee November 15, 2013 im hoping he ends up being Nikki’s son and not Dyldo Log in to Reply LaDivaYR November 15, 2013 YUMMER with a side of S-E-X! He can stitch me up anytime… I can’t help but laugh every time this manly man shares a scene with over-tanned, over-caked, over-waxed, over-hyped, over-done Steve Burton. It’s like a drag production of Beauty and the (sexy) Beast, lol. Congrats to Sean! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott November 15, 2013 Little sweetie.

Man I wish he was Nikki’s son or the one breaking Nikki back. Either way again Stitch is more watchable than Dildo- Log in to Reply FoxCrane November 15, 2013 Maybe Stitch can be Paul’s Cult Baby .. lol! Recall, unlike Nikki, we actually DID see Paul have sex with the female cult leader, whom was arrested by Carl at the end of the story. That was part of her modus operandi: seducing the young men in the cult so that they could be “one with her.” Maybe Paul impregnated her, and she gave birth to Baby Stitch in prison, with him eventually being adopted out as well.

Log in to Reply bobbyew November 15, 2013 Cynthia Watros as Stitch wife would be boss. Good for him love Dr. Rayburn he is hot in and out of scrubs. Log in to Reply tmac November 15, 2013 Now when do we get to see him naked? Log in to Reply rozzberry November 15, 2013 He better somehow turn out to be Nikki’s son then. It’s too much lazy writing having Dylan be Nikki’s son & yet another dumb move by tiic adding another useless character on contract. It’s not saying much, but he’s been on far less than Steve Burton & I like him a thousand times more. I probably won’t be comparing him to MM or BM anytime soon, but there’s definitely an ease about his acting. It doesn’t hurt he’s attractive & seems like a real guy’s guy. It’s not impossible, but it would be a left field rewrite for me to have CW be his wife & grieving over a lost child. For starters, isn’t his kid suppose to be just a little older than Connor? Also he’s shown no signs of struggling with a loss of any kind let alone a child. JMO though. Log in to Reply Screamer_2012 November 15, 2013 He’s been doing commercials and bit parts on TV for years. Glad to see he’s got a contract role on the #1 soap. He’s also a pretty funny stand-up comedian. [video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIM7IK6hAlM autoplay:0] Sean as Brett Farve.

Log in to Reply harlee490 November 15, 2013 He is a better actor than Steve Burton and has more entertaining value compared to Dylan, and no I don’t want him to sleep with Nikki, we been down this road with Nikki & Victor so many times, just shows you the writers today are not nearly as talented because their could be plenty of story as a couple for Victor & Nikki if these new writers weren’t so lazy to rehash all of JFP’s old stories she had already done. But guys this isn’t exactly good news, another on contract to push another longstanding vet out so JFP and shades of Shelley & Tracey can create a canvas of their own, they could care less about the fans. We know at least 3 more newbies are coming…I shudder to think… Log in to Reply brettyboy November 16, 2013 I actually delighted by this news, I’ve really taken to this character. Log in to Reply noway November 16, 2013 CW’s character said today her husbands name was Dean. Log in to Reply shirls429 November 16, 2013 :love: happy he is staying. Log in to Reply pjc722 November 16, 2013 Hopefully this means that NIKKI was dumb and just assumed because Dylan is blonde and STUPID as well, that he had to be her son BUT it turns out that Stitch is just that, her son. I think the chemistry is there for Stitch and Nikki to be family. I’m sorry, I don’t understand the wimpy appeal of Dylan who is that OVER TRYING SWEET guy who wants to be everyone’s friend but is really no ones. He’s written as nice and innocent but to the point that he is a little slow. Since the character of Dylan has been on he has never fully understood personal space or even relationships. How many times have we heard him ask what “love is” or just question the meaning of things. When Delia died he mentioned that he just played tea party with her the other day and now wants to build a doll house for Faith. I’m sorry, sure its all nice but with Delia you are not dating either of her mother’s and really aren’t bestie’s with her father and with Faith you don’t have anything more than a passing relationship with her mom and ruined her dad’s relationship with your ex and now his ex. Sorry, Dylan is just too damaged and just odd for me. As for Stitch, he has come to terms with his demons whether or not he has lost them, he definitely controls them. The war is behind him but he hasn’t forgotten it. He has a wife and a son, which they either have to cast now or for some stupid reason they will divorce unknown wife from Stitch. He has had an instant chemistry with MTS/Nikki. Another reason is that this one character has a career and a direction in life. He is a doctor and this show sorely needs one that is connected to a family. Dylan, like Victoria and Nick, and even Noah, has no direction in life. Victoria can’t make up her mind whether to work for daddy or not and Nick just doesn’t want it but both have MILLIONS to create a path but don’t. Noah has had 3 careers in so many months and even had his bestie negotiate him a job into his job offer only to drop it. So NO DYLAN as a pseudo Newman. PLUS, it will add just one more question to Dylan’s list of questions: Who am I and why did my parents lie about that?! Stitch is a perfect mix to the Newmans and would look more like Paul’s son if it came out who the daddy was. Also, Stitch looks like he could stand up to Victor and would be a great foil to Adam. Nick, Victoria and the new sibling don’t have to hate one another. Just hate Adam. Log in to Reply pferrando November 16, 2013 Stitch’s character just has so much more promise. Plus I love the idea of actually have a doctor on the show again. Maybe we can have some hospital scenes instead of those damn park ones. I miss the days of Snapper, Casey and Olivia at the hospital. Those were the days when you actually saw the characters at their jobs. Not huddled in a restaurant somewhere. Log in to Reply noway November 17, 2013 Pferrando Now you are making me get all sentimental reminiscing about the glory days on the show. Olivia had an actual office at the hospital and back when Keesha was on with the Aids story one of Bell’s best just wish they wouldn’t have killed Nathan off. Loved the Hoff and Wings. I would love for this dude to be Nikki kid and not Orange boy. Log in to Reply pferrando November 17, 2013 Noway…I wanted him to be her son too. And it would have actually been a win on Phelps’ part since it wasn’t exactly planned. But no. Log in to Reply ChrisGa November 18, 2013 Great news for us Stitch fans; the guy’s smoking hot and a good actor with the kind of charisma that Steve Burton wishes he had. And the chemistry is there to be had. It would be kinda genius if Nikki was assuming that Dylan was her son without definitive proof only for it turn out that Stitch is actually her son. I do wish they hadn’t stuck him with a family because I could see this guy with any number of GC women(or men ). Either way, definitely terrific news. Now, about that contract for Ignacio Serricchio? Log in to Reply cookies77 December 12, 2013 Woohoo! Love him! Now he needs a good, hot storyline. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
