I found this early 90s article on the Denver-Carrington Twitter page: https://twitter.com/DynastyTVShow As you may know, Gordon Thomson filed a lawsuit against Spelling Productions for not being included in that dreadful Reunion (which, in turn, made the miniseries that replaced Thomson with the late Robin Sachs even more dreadful). This article sheds a little more light on what went on in the spring of 1991 from Thomson's perspective: - Thomson agreed to appear in The Reunion in February 1991 - Spelling was supposed to contact Santa Barbara producers (where Thomson was a series regular) in a timely fashion to agree on the filming schedule - Thomson's reps kept calling Spelling 2-3 per week from late April till early June 1991 - Spelling finally contacted Santa Barbara producers on June 7, five days prior to Dynasty Reunion production began - Santa Barbara producers declined to release Thomson as it was too late of a notice - Thomson received private support from Emma Samms and John James - Thomson discussed his lawsuit with John James and other friends prior to filing it - Thomson filed the lawsuit in early October 1991, days before The Reunion premiered on ABC - Thomson came to terms with the idea he would never work for Spelling again Here's the article. Does anyone know how this ended? Did Spelling settle? If all this is true, and I believe it is, it shows gross incompetence and arrogance on the part of Spelling, reminiscent of the Oxenberg-Cellini fiasco, not realizing how crucial using a well-cast original actor is, thus further butchering the project with an already lackluster script.
