I saw Tom Eplin in a low

I saw Tom Eplin in a low budget zombie movie recently and he has really let himself go.... Your picks are pretty good and of the five, I would say Tuc Watkins is the best choice. He would bring some much needed humor to the role. RKK is too intense for the rest of the cast. If Stephanie were still around maybe.... Grant Aleksander would be bored. James Depaiva would just be boring. So my vote is definately Tuc. Your casting choices would definately remove the knuckle dragging aspect to the role....

I can't have VI for the part

I can't have VI for the part now because of AMC, my second choice has always been and I still feel Grant Aleksander could bring all kinds of elements to the role. He looks nothing like Ronn's Ridge which I think could be plus...but in the department of quality Grant has that in spades. Grant has showed his vast range of layering a character with flaws and qualities over the years and could bring it.

He can play romantic older lead character and have chemistry with his (top notch) leading ladies...check

He can play a loving father and husband character...check

He can be a better Ridge when playing a "controling" father...check

He can play a furious foe for $Bill...check

He can play a good friend to a character...check

He can bring a more decepative side into Ridge...check... Wink PS..control of Forrester.

I just think acting wise Grant could pull it off...who's to say he couldn't actually have some chemistry with Taylor...Brooke...both could add a flavor and freshen that story up! Wink

Harlee, Grant could play the role asleep, the problem is that it would put him to sleep! He needs a more challenging role. Unless the character gets more depth, I think Grant Alexander would be like hiring Meryl Streep to play Alice Horton in the reboot of Days.....

Mark, only true if Brad wrote

Mark, only true if Brad wrote Ridge the same because of Ronn's range but with Grant......hmmmmm it could now now since Stephanie is gone be perfect time to dive into the Ridge.

'm right there with ya

'm right there with ya Harlee, but would he be willing to relocate? VI was also my first choice, but now if Grant would be willing & Bill would be smart? LOL

As soon as I heard about

As soon as I heard about Ridge being recast I thought of Grant Aleksander. He would definitely fill the great actor void being left vacant by Susan Flannery's retirement and maybe he could even work out the deal Susan had where she was allowed to direct some episodes since I read that Grant was interested in transitioning to directing.

I have no idea what this means. Are you saying that Grant Aleksander is not attractive enough for the part?

Yes, I am for him to be

Yes, I am for him to be w/Brooke. Grant is a great actor, not saying he isn't but not for B&B, unless another role. I still want Ronn back. No one can do it like Ronn. Give Grant to Taylor for a new start for both of them. Don't like Taylor either
