    Just was wondering-- do you think that Mike Connors (who is famous for starring as Joe Mannix in the classic 1967-75 CBS detective series Mannix) could have played Blake Carrington in Dynasty, at least to the level of John Forsythe?

    I've not really seen him in anything. Just looked him up, and he just doesn't seem right. Not classically handsome enough or something. John Forsyth had a great deal of charm, and even when he was older you could see he was a very handsome man. I think he was just the right note to play Blake.
    That's the magic of DYNASTY they were all pitch perfect.

    He's so good at playing ladies' man, I'd have liked him instead as a smarmy Sam Dexter. He and Michael Nader could've played off each other beautifully.
