This has so many important storylines exploding on screen with real history of Y&R!

All the Abbotts are front & center in story...Traci lost Danny's baby (forgot), Lauren is bullying her, married to Paul, Joann is coming home, Neil is still alive w\Gina. Mark is in town trying to blackmail Dina, Jack decks Mark for Dina's honor...the first time the name of Brent Davis is mentioned starting off the story of Ashley's paternity saga....one my favorite periods of Y&R! Love Love ...just makes you want more....hmmm Wink

Happy Birthday to Y&R! God save the Queen Wink Love
Good Quality

I never noticed this before,

I never noticed this before, but does anyone else see the huge resemblance between Terry Lester and Billy Miller. They have a lot of the same mannerisms. They could actually be brothers...more so than with PB.

They do look like brothers -- Terry Lester and Billy Miller.

Actually, David Tom looked so much like Jess Walton's son it's uncanny, but Billy Miller doesn't look like Jess very much.

Back in the 80s, I always thought that Terry Lester and Jerry Douglas didn't look like father and son very much, either. Terry does resemble Marla Adams somewhat. Peter Bergman looks much more like Jerry Douglas.

Pfferando...never thought

Pfferando...never thought about it until you brought that up and YES they do look like brothers and Billy Miller's acting style is very Terry Lester... Shock

I love both Jacks, PB has kept the character intact and then have expand Jack's range but Terry Lester was the PLAYBOY Jack in spades, charming, witty Wink Terry is ole Smilin' Jack Wink

Yes, I love both actors,

Yes, I love both actors, similar to the way I feel about both Jess and Brenda playing Jill.

Bill hated losing his core characters/actors, but he also almost always was spot on with his recasts. No offense to anyone, but the one glaring exception for me was when Lance was recast. D Cole was TOO different.

And probably the one that physically was spot on of course was when Ashley was recast by Brenda E.

I just saw Nu-estKyle and Nu-estAbby on the photo spread on here. I need to hold my tongue for now. Wink

Dennis Cole was a great

Dennis Cole was a great re-cast. One of the few Y&R 'stars' I have ever met. He was there to dedicate the grand re-opening of a SE Michigan Mall in the early 80s. Dennis brought his lovely wife, Jaclyn Smith with him, to the event. So it was double-treat to meet a star from 'Charlie's Angels' at the time.

On screen he did a good job, and really looked like Luca's brother, and gave some much-needed 'pep' to the role of Lance Prentiss.

Physically, it was too

Physically, it was too jarring to recast with him. IMO he didn't have the charisma that John had.

I don't think the chemistry with Lorie showed either. He was a great singer though!

My preference will always be

My preference will always be for Lance was John McCook simply the chemistry was off the charts with Jamie Lyn Bauer. I liked Dennis Cole interacting with Lucas, Leslie, Vanessa but the chemistry wasn't there as much w\Jamie as with JMcC and think that's when Bill decided to split the couple up and Lance left GC because losing Prentiss Industries which setup the saga of Lori getting the company back from Victor, Lori had unknowningly gave Victor info he used to require PI....Lori is still is the only woman truly put one over on Victor by leaving him at the alter after he signed over PI over to Lori which she gave back to Lance....EPIC Love

harlee -- That was a good

harlee -- That was a good s/l, Lori vs Victor. Although I would say that Victoria, and somewhat lesser Abby, put one over on their dear old Dad. Vicky got the half-billion, and she's still Daddy's little favorite, same with Abagail.

You're right though, Dennis Cole's Lance was much better with Victoria Mallory's Leslie Brooks, than John McCook was. And Dennis Cole and Jamie Lynne Bauer didn't have chemistry either.

Seeing Doug Davidson talking about his character's early years really brought back the memories. Paul and Danny working at Jonas' restaurant. Lucas Prentiss dating Nikki's sister. Long time ago.

Yea hey mon, I wasn't

Yea hey mon, I wasn't considering family, which you're right I was thinking of a non-psycho woman exact revenge on Victor's ass! Wink

Yes Dennis was much better w\Victoria's Leslie then JMcC....trying to remember which Lance was it ...Dennis or John's Lance that had the son w\Leslie...Lori once again was on the war path to get Leslie (that's the original sistah feud, loved it). I'm thinking Dennis...help me out hey mon Shock

It was awesome Doug talking about his character and we saw the clip of him & Nikki (true newbies then) when Nikki was trying to "bring" over Paul to cult...I SCREAM...gosh I loved the twisted writing of Bill. He already had Nikki, Peggy, joining & working on recruiting Paul & Joann's husband (James Steinbeck later) was their leader Love I loved that twisted story. My mom was like "you wouldn't join anything like that would you"...LOL..

Harlee, if I recall

Harlee, if I recall correctly, Brooks was conceived and born during the time of John's Lance. But left the country (and Y&R) with Dennis' Lance.

Thanks Lance, I couldn't

Thanks Lance, I couldn't remember exactly but I remember the story I thought had started and WAM it was Dennis Cole as Lance.
