    I was wondering when this would happen. Thx!

    my first thought… ie: current storyline….

    that the ‘big” surprise party… Will thinks Kate, Sammi, and Gabi… “are” planning… this will be the big surprise reveal…. tada! it’s the nuWill.


  2. Chris says:

    Not looking forward to this. Looks like the end of Will/Sonny for me, especially if they’re doing a wedding without Chandler


  3. jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    New year! And Will becomes a new GUY!…lol Im giving him a chance…gonna be a willcome change to see Will without that constant grin all the time! i hope!

    I will miss Chandler Massey at his best, but his best was several months back. He created a messy situation and lost his spark. Chandler’s constant grin bothered me, but in the end even that will be missed until Guy makes the role his own. Guy should have no problem when compared to the uneven performances by CM these last few months. Chandler lost interest and Guy should be excited about HIS new role.

    Good luck Chandler!


  5. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    I will really miss Chandler. But I am willing to give Guy the best chance to settle into the role before I make my judgments on his part as Will. I know he has the acting chops, though.


  6. Libby says:

    Because Chandler Massey was so popular – I wonder if DAYS didn’t encourage / direct o some lackluster performances. Massey always gave it his all in the past. While they finished filming for him in August. They are still airing him until end of year. Guy Wilson would have been a wildcard. He will be there for Feb sweeps. Good risk management for Days. if Guy Wilson catches fire if not – they have delivered the wedding – even if they move on from Wilson as front burner.

    Guessing Massey’ s salary went to hire Daniel Cosgrove as new character to interact with established 30/40 cast and a new story to boot. All good.


  7. Ray says:

    I like CM, but agree that there were times when he was smiling in scenes and did not understand.


  8. RLeternal says:

    So Long, CM; Good Luck! in your new endeavors. Welcome! GW.


  9. Gmbenet says:

    I think the character of Will should be written out to depart when Camilla Banus leaves. I think Days lost an opportunity when the character of Will was written ti be gay. Will and Gabi should have remained a heterosexual couple and become that generation’s “Tom and Alice Horton”. They could have used a different chracter as a gay person and not Will Horton.

    So as far as I am concerned, Will can leave town with Gabi and the baby.


    James replied

    Nathan should come back. He looks like a suitable heir to be the next generation’s Tom, with Melanie as his “Alice”.


  10. Patrick says:

    Welcome: Guy Wilson

    for commandeering… the stonghold… foothold… the presence of the other one.. the lifestyle… my life partner… belongs

    with me

    I love the LOVE
    I love the romance
    I love the melding of being
    I love the mingling of ALL

    I love that this couple… represent… how equal this is


  11. mo says:

    No, I’m not ready to say goodbye to Chandler.


  12. Kaleesi says:

    His last name is WilSon!! lol maybe that will bring him enough luck to make it work post-Chandler.


  13. Paul says:

    I know I’m in the minority here but I’m looking forward to the recasting. Since Chandler announced he was quitting the show; a smirk has become the main trademark of the character and frankly I’m tired of looking at it. I wish him the best in future endeavors and welcome the new actor to the role.


  14. jason says:
