Wishful Casting: Forbes March as Days of Our Lives' Eric Brady


Okay, I usually don't do two Wishful Casting posts in the same 24-hour time frame, but the rumor about Forbes March (Nash) leaving One Life To Live  got me to thinking of how excellent it would be if March joined Days of Our Lives as the new Eric Brady!

March and my other recent Days casting wish Dax Griffin as Brady Black would play well off of each other as stepbrothers and rivals for the affections of Nicole and/or Chloe. March has already proven he plays well off neurotic blondes with his hit pairing with Bree Williamson (Tess/Jessica) on OLTL, so I suspect he would work well with Ari Zuker's Nicole.  

Eric Brady was Nicole's first love, the one she gave up for money when Kate paid her $5 million to marry Lucas instead of Eric in order to help Lucas gain custody of Will. Bring back fan fave Bryan Datillo as Lucas and of course throw in the brilliant Alison Sweeney as Eric's twin Sami, complete with her faux-hubby EJ and Days could have the best thirtysomething cast in daytime.
