    Was that because the actor they had got a better offer or did they think they could find someone better?

    David Ackroyd was tied in to something else and so wasn't free for Knots Landing.

    It's a shame not to see more of Ackroyd as I liked him a lot. But as it turns out it worked out really well.

    I don't even remember. It's had to have been over a decade though.
    He did guest star on a KL episode though as a different character.

    I think Ackroyd did a fine job playing Gary too.

    He was doing Little Women. I really liked him as Gary Ewing.
