    Good luck to Robert Scott Wilson. I can’t wait to see what kind of role that he will be playing. I hope that Eden Riegel and Susan Lucci will play a greater in All My Children. The Kane woman like the Martin play a great role in All My Children. Good luck to the future.

    Another example of the quality program PP will be making. Give me a break another model with no acting credits for the new young cast.

      No acting credits? You mean besides the minor roles in 4 films and guest spots in 8 TV shows? Sure, he hasn’t done a lot of work, but he’s done some.

      And if the entertainment industry never fired models with little to no acting experience/credits, we wouldn’t have Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, Matthew Fox, Chloe Sevigny, Halle Berry, Monica Bellucci, Julia Roberts, Jessica Lange, Kim
      Basinger, Jennifer Connelly, Rachel Weisz or Julianne Moore.

      That’s how a lot of actors get their start. And isn’t it true that every actor has no acting credits before they get their first job? Should no one be hired on a soap who’s never acted professional before? For a lot of people, a soap opera is their first job. The soaps have been used as a place to hone your talents and to get into acting. Do you think a young person with a long list of credits is going to even try out for a soap opera?

    Wasn’t he “all grown up” last time he was on the show? If I remember correctly, he college age when he left. I know the actor was 26.
