Quote Soapbaby71: Starting with Chelsea's boyfriend and ending with Cameron.
Don't get me wrong, I had high hopes for the Cameron recast, but when I saw him "act" for a few days...I quickly learned he was one-dimentional. There's nothing wrong with a good guy, just not a boring guy. I would love to see a real AA or minority couple on the show. And, not just the few lines here and there like the Abe/Lexi days. Remember when they open the door for a good s/l about learning about their son's condition? The ball was dropped, no more about their struggles or how they were coping. Their scenes, as Abe's is now...are supporting, never using their talent. Why is that?
That would have been great your much more creative then the hacks the write the show. I allways wanted Cameron to be Stefano son. Poor Cameron was wastedQuote days78: i know this falls under the category of woulda/shoulda/coulda ... but I wish that Cameron would have been cast has Maxine's son to begin with... could have been a whole new family and dynamic of single mama putting her son thru med school. They could have given Maxine a whole back story as to why she used to be so hard on people. She's softened so much from the original writing of her character.
Mama head nurse and her son the intern /doctor could have had endless s/l possibilities, instead we got a character that was never fleshed out, we still don't know who his father was... guess the writers were too lazy to care about that one.
Quote fadingrose: I think the title of this thread is confusing. Maybe it's dumb of me, but until I read a few postings I didn't catch on that AA referred to African Americans. (I originally thought it was referring to AA members, so wondered why Cameron was cited as an example.) Aren't we allowed to refer to people of color as "black"? Nevertheless, I agree that minority actors should not be given "cheesy roles."
