The show had a Jeff Webber mention. You all know what that means, right? That he is destined to return to the show. They don't mention him for 30 years and when they do, speculation begins to run rampant. Who are we not to jump on that bandwagon? Karen and I are going to give our suggestions as to who we think might covet the role. This is speculation only, not rumors, inuendos or outuendos. It's all in good fun and we hope that in the comments you chime in and let us know who you think has a chance at this role.
Fingers crossed that they bring Robin Mattson back for a guest spot and the characters interact. That would be epic.
My next suggestion is Grant Aleksander. He is another soap vet having been on Capitol, All My Children and Guiding Light. We know he has the acting chops. And knows how daytime soaps work. Plus I am sure he will have some familiarity with some of the cast. NOTE: This is hugely popular on Twitter!!
Off-the-wall guess. How about Gregory Harrison? I know, I know, he recently played Gregory Chase. But that was for about 3 minutes. Why not bring him back in the role of Jeff? It wouldn't be the first time any soap did this.
Wild Card. Here is an absolute Wild Card. Mark Harmon recently ended his decades long stint on NCIS. If he isn't looking to slow down or retire, he can come on the show for awhile. This can be a long-term role or a glorified guest spot. Oh, and please bring Pam along for a few episodes. I can see her as a Hospital Administrator from a rival company trying to take over the place. Love her!
Why not bring back the original? Richard Dead Anderson? Tell him it is a 3-day gig and he can come on the show, spend time with Elizabeth, meet his grandchildren for the first time, and then have a little pow-wow with Heather. And vanish. Because this is probably what is going to happen anyway.
I agree with RDA reprising his role... :) KCM
James Depavia could also be a contender. He's 64, so could be SORA a bit! I know he was on GH briefly but who cares!?
Robert S Woods from OLTL. I loved Bo..I'd be happy with him as Jeff! Who would be your pick? I don't think Jeff will come right away--maybe like Feb Sweeps or later?? I hope it's sooner
Good Old Walt Wiley! Recently on Tainted Dreams, he might just fit the bill! Tall, handsome and the right age.
SOME TWITTER PICKS: People have said: Brian Kerwin, James Kiberd, William Russ, Marc Singer and Lane Davies to name just a few!
PS. In case you were wondering, Danny Devito had prior commitments.
