    I'm just wondering. This may be a thread already. I don't see many cast members ever returning but I wonder about Jack Coleman and Heather Locklear and Ted McGinley. They all are still actively acting. Those are the only originals I could see returning.

    Thoughts?

    Did one of the producers hint (before filming commenced) they were open to guest appearances by some of the original actors? I thought I read it somewhere. Since then everything appears to have gone cold on that front. I'd like to see Ted McGinley appear. Enjoyed his odd appearance in The West Wing.

    Yes, McGinley could play Liams (adoptive?) father! :spinning:

    Didn't you loke him? I thought he was quite cute. Especially shirtless. :)

    Most of you are aware I haven't viewed this reincarnation of Dynasty so I'm unfamiliar with the story. I've noted Tom Carrington has been mentioned a lot. Has there been any talk of Blake's mother? Is she still alive? If so I could see Dame Joan stepping into that role and facing off with her former daughter-in-law, Alexis. I'd watch that.

    He was extremely handsome in those days, but Clay has to be one of the most boring Dynasty characters ever.
    Some people don't have that certain "something" that makes them interesting on screen, and I'm not saying that handsome hunks can't act because I think Lorenzo Lamas and Maxwell Caulfied were perfectly cast for their roles.
    Casper van Dien is another beautiful man who doesn't excite me as an actor. Sorry but it's not for everyone.

    There's not much love for the Fallmonts on the Dynasty forum, personally I didn't dislike them because they were such a miserable, dysfunctional family, but both Fallmont sons were painfully miscast.

    Having said that, Casper looks perfect as Blake's younger brother Ben.

    But would it be a wise choice?:think: I'm scared, I'm very very scared.

    He was (is?) married to Catherine Oxenberg, so there's also that.

    But you're right--he's not a very convincing actor. Like Grant Show, CVD burst onto the scene as a 'hot, frequently shirtless hunk' on an ABC soap (GS on Ryan's Hope, CVD on One Life to Live) but unlike Show, Van Dien seemed content to be "the hunk of the day" and didn't take advantage of the learning opportunities soaps give. He seems to play the same type of character every time I see him. But then, if they just want Ben to be a two-dimensional villain who never looks like a match for Blake, he might be the perfect fit.

    Weeell, it's not like O.Blake & O.Ben looked like brothers from a John Steinbeck novel. Christopher Cazenove's version could be quite hammy sometimes (devious smirk/raised eyebrow) so I guess it wouldn't be fair to expect the best of the best.
    But CVD couldn't even do camp to save his life (but of course he's more than welcome to prove me wrong, and the same goes for Ted McGinley).

    Get Casper on as Ben... I don't care if he cant act. He's aging very nicely and he's still got an amazing body... Why don't the Carrington's have a gym already?

    Actually this needs to happen! Now who could play Caress? Heather Locklear?

    Catherine Oxenberg. That's where my vote goes for Caress. Besides, if they did cast her ex-husband as Ben... :lol: Oh dear, now I'm imagining them reenacting Ben having Caress shipped off to prison!

    Although my vote still goes to Maxwell Caulfield to play Ben.

    Seconded!

    Out of the list of celeb's I met in Los Angeles, he's one of them. Met Casper in Santa Monica when my friend in 2010 who works for TMZ wanted me to hang out and look for celebs he could interview. He spotted him at Starbucks at the Promenade and I had no idea who he was. Then I knew when he said his last name. Casper was surprised I knew of the show Titans (it was only 13 episodes and only 11 aired in the USA). He told me that nobody ever talked to him about that show before but me. I was all "You were in Titans! I recorded all of them and it was what I watched after 90210 and Melrose Place ended on FOX."

    How about....Instead of a fake Cristal, he could play a fake Blake!

    Alexis (rather than Sammy Jo) finds CVD (character name: "Ricky") working in a bar or something, and when she sees his resemblance to Blake she dreams up the FakeBlake scheme. CVD plays Ricky until Alexis has him do some minor plastic surgery, then when the bandages come off Grant Show is playing FakeBlake as well as Real Blake.

    Real Blake, rather than being locked in the attic, is off on a secret business trip to Venezuela, where he is detained by the corrupt local government. Alexis wants FakeBlake to break up with Cristal and send her away, and of course she'll get to play Lady of the Manor once again. She doesn't realize FakeBlake totally has the hots for Cristal and wants to keep her around, and of course through various mistakes FakeBlake has revealed himself to be an impostor to both Cristal and Anders.
    Anders is secretly trying to get RealBlake released from VZ but leaves FakeBlake in place to throw off the feds, who would flip out if they found out Blake was making deals with embargoed nations. Anders gets his jollies by tripping up the FakeBlake at every opportunity. Cristal is really conflicted because this version of Blake is actually a much nicer person and she's not sure she wants the Old Blake back. She does however have the presence of mind to fend off FakeBlake's clumsy advances.​

    No no no, it's got to be Dean Van De Camp!
    What a great conflict, I'd love to see that.

    There's nothing close enough to "Rita" in a male name. :(

    There's "Peter", only you'd have to pronounce it like the English: "Petah." :lol:
