Season 2 of Falcon Crest in one episode (Choices) Tony Cumson was played by Robert Loggia instead of John Saxon. The actors were completely different physically and in there screen presence so it was a curious recasting. That said, I thought Robert Loggia was more convincing as the weak man that Angela forced to leave Falcon Crest and also as the kind of man that would work with Richard to get Julia to sell her interest in Falcon Crest. John Saxon just seemed too nice and not the kind of person that Lance would hate so strongly. The way the character of Tony developed in later seasons when he had less of an edge and was a more sympathetic character suited John Saxon better. Which version of Tony Cumson did you prefer?
