Quote PurrrrrrrKitty: Wow, after 37 years, I must have been watching the wrong Soap.. I thought it was called "The Young and Restless".. not "The Adam Show".. ;)
All kidding aside..Adam is a vital character on this Soap.. so I hope he is a recast with someone who does the job just as well. Surely, among all of the unknown and unemployed actors, there is "just one" out there who can do the job justice. :D
Folks this is not Shakespeare..with Sir Laurence Olivier leaving the role!!!! nor are they filming "Gone With The Wind" and Clark Gable got fired..
Please, let's put this into perspective.. I think MM did an outstanding job.. but he is gone... period.. but the character of "Adam" still exist.
I am 36 and I have to say Laurence Olivier was seriously sexy! I look back on actors and say that some of the so called "sexy" actors now cannot hold a candle to the ones that made Tinseltown what it is. Clark Gable is another. And James Dean *) *) *) *) *) *) *) *) *)
Oh back to your point..ahemm... *) *) I think MM really nailed the Adam character. I am sad to see him go. But recasting the character will probably happen. I will keep watching the show regardless as I want to see our remaining 4 soaps survive in a day and age of reality, talk cooking self help garbage. Katie Courics show (the one that got OLTL cancelled) is now cancelled. The big ol 2 years it lasted. Killing a soap that lasted decades. The Revolution got cancelled after 6 months. 6 months as opposed to the decades AMC was on.
Thanks for your input.. Yesss, I would hate to see Soaps leave also..their replacements are not worth a dime, IMO.
I have been watching Soaps since 1957.. I was 23.. I have enjoyed thousands and thousands of hours of soaps... pure escape and entertainment for me.... beyond that.. I don't keep up with who is fired etc.. in fact, in my day.. it was never on the news.. that actor left and the other one took over or the character was killed off.... no big deal.. but that was before social media.
I remember watching ATWT and their main character who was a doctor, played by this actor for 10 plus years.. got killed suddenly.. wow, did that shock everyone. Many years later, it came out. he was an alcoholic and came in late too often and the show got tired of it. There can be sooo many reason why an actor is fired.
I started when Soaps were done "live"... to me, that is what made them intersting.. they had to know their stuff. or they did not stay.
I too will miss MM.. but that is life.. I truly hope the characte is recast and I will give that person a true chance to prove himself.
