Quote LuvWilSon: Hi WilSon Blvd. Well, I for one have gone from tremendous sadness yesterday to being angry and bitter today. I just don't like how this whole thing went down...I think the fans are getting totally ripped off.
When I read the tweet about us FINALLY seeing the new WilSon bedroom set, but Chandler won't be in the role when they film those scenes, I feel like someone hit me in the gut. Then I felt totally bait and switched...I mean, we have been waiting MONTHS to see WilSon in bed again, and the next time will be with new Will. If I didn't love Freddie so much, I would just call it quits on this debacle.
I also am furious at Ken Corday...Lucky, you said it perfectly. He sure changed his tune on the whole recast situation. Again, as a fan I feel duped. I just can't believe after this magical love story which took YEARS to develop and unfold, that Chandler's last scenes weren't even with Freddie or Marlena...or anyone other than Ari. And apparently his last word was "huh". WTF is that?
Because of that, I think a recast is starting in a bad place and I feel sorry for the guy because I'm not sure anyone short of Chandler's identical twin can pull it off. I may be wrong, and like Str8, Kay, Mari and others have said I will give it a try for the sake of Freddie. Thank goodness for him, he is a superb actor. But, it's tough to find any chemistry (see: Dannifer), much less the level of pure magic these two had.
I'm wondering if they will go the look-alike path or get a new Will with a totally different look. They could have waited, had the proposal and commitment ceremony, then had WilSon go on their honeymoon with new Will coming back with Sonny. I think someone else suggested that route. That would at least give the new guy a chance to settle in. I'm sure the new actor is most likely straight in real life, so adjusting to doing gay love scenes will take some time.
I am just so mad, angry, hurt and feel like the jilted lover with how this thing played out. Help me here guys and gals...I know, I know...we still have Freddie and I will stick it out and give it a chance to support Freddie...who I absolutely adore.
Sorry for the book, just needed to get that out. And my summary of today's scenes...Sonny's hair was delicious and Gabi's still a whiny b!tch. Hugs all...love ya!!!
I’m with you all the way LuvWilSon so vent all you want on that jerk of a liar Ken Corday.
I would totally see the last of this soap if it wasn’t for Freddie still being there. It just sucks all around.
I know that Chandler said he would fully support a recast but DOOL could have scripted a s/l worthy of a two time Emmy winner for his exit.
