Ridge was recast...So Who Could Play John Black on Days?
The poster "Santa Barbara" brought up the idea of recasting John Black. And hey since B&B has successfully recast the uber popular Ridge from a veteran hair-model, than so could Days with John Black. I mean I could not stomach to see Drake anymore. And I remember saying that if it was got the ratings up I would stomach it. But he just can't act worth a damn. He is a shitty actor on another level. It was painful to watch when he was on. But Marlena could sure use her Hubby. So why not recast him with a talented actor?
Which former soap actors (with a clip to show their work) do you believe could tackle the role of John Black and bring something to the role we have not seen before?
For me right off the top of my head I kept thinking about Jon Hensley (ex-Holden, As The World Turns http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1l3t_-QZ1M ). Yes I know he is only 48, but hey female characters are often cast down in age even they are suppose to be older. Though he would also make a good Bo Brady too.
James Hyde (ex-Sam Bennett, Passions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqSe7ZptY9c ) could be up in the running for the role.
Grant Aleksander (ex-Phillip, Guiding Light http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESib-JhPre4 ) Now he could take the role to the next level.
And if you really want to get to casting than Jack Wagner (ex-Nick Marone, The Bold and The Beautiful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SN_2b4q2ejo ) could work if his ego could stay in check or "Miss Wagner" as you guys term people here. I hope I used it correctly.
James DePaiva (ex-Max Holden, One Life To Live http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rqi-msbPIyc ). Something about this long lost actor could work in the role as well.
