The Bay's Gregori J. Martin has done it again. The indie showrunner just cast C.C. Capwell himself, Jed Allan as Harold Johnson, patriarch of the Johnson clan on his smash hit web series The Bay! Harold is the father of Mackenzie Johnson, played by Lane Davies, who portrayed incorrigible, drunken, Shakespeare-quoting, barrister Mason Capwell—son of Allan's C.C.—on my beloved Santa Barbara. Allan will begin airing in Season 2 this September.
Old school Days of Our Lives fans will also remember Allan's decade and a half run (1971-85) as Dr. Marlena Evans' (Deidre Hall) first hubby and original baby daddy Don Craig (Their boy DJ died from crib death). After SB, Allan recurred on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 as the father of spoiled, rich kid Steve Sanders (Ian Ziering). He also appeared from 2004-06 as Edward Quartermaine on General Hospital.
Wishful Casting: DAYS' Suzanne Rogers as the Johnson family matriarch. I think there's still a lot of unfinished business between Don Craig and Maggie Horton, er Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!
