Alan-Michael OUT!

Michael Dempsey brought the character of Alan-Michael back to Springfield more than a year ago, but A-M never re-caught on with fans, so unfortunately, he's out. Four actors have portrayed adult Alan-Michael, however this latest incarnation was perhaps the least successful (however, I'm not too sure how I feel about A-M #3, Michael Dietz).

Those in-the-know at Guiding Light insist that just because Alan-Michael is being written out of the show, it doesn't mean that he shot Alan. There are also no plans to recast the role.

If I had any say in the matter, first and foremost I'd like Rick Hearst (A-M #2) back as A-M, but he's got a nice gig over at General Hospital that I don't see him wanting to leave anytime soon. So, how 'bout we get a real blast from the past (Why not? ATWT is doing it by re-casting Scott Bryce as Craig Montgomery!): the original A-M, Carl T. Evans (featured photo). He's a total cutie-pie who also has the cockiness that A-M needs, w/o being off-putting. What do you think?

I liked Michael Dempsey's take on A-M. I never saw any of the other ones when they were on the show so I can't compare. I LOVE Rick Hearst so I can see why folks would want him back but I think the Carl T. Evans idea is quite good. And, lord knows GL needs some faces with real history.

I'd love to see Carl T. Evans back. Great idea. If we can't have Rick Hearst, CTE is the next best choice!
