I'm still so frickin' happy about JD and 'Moonlight' that I made a list why ...  
1. I was right. Hah! Always number one. I kept saying that perhaps a show would retool and recast from the Pilot (like BtVS with Willow), but I was shot down. And AHA! It happened. Yay for me. (And yeah, Jason, too.)

2. The fact that this is (a) WB productions (b) Silver productions and (c) on CBS with Les Moonves likely means that we were not the only ones impressed with JDoh. The big boys liked him too, so YAY!!!!

3. I was worried that we wouldn't see him anymore because that seems to be the way with all actors I've loved, but the fact that he was cast in this by those big names (throw David Greenwalt, who knows something about star power, in the mix because he had to approve it, I'm sure) means that even if this tanks, I have more faith that he WILL get something else because he has made an impact. Woo-to-the-freaking-hoo!!!!!!!

4. A mischievous vampire!?!?! He's going to be playing a MISCHIEVOUS vampire!?!?!? GAH!!! Kill me now with joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5. There are four main cast members it looks like and he's one of 'em. AHHHHHHHHH!!!! One of FOUR main and he was hired to essentially be the young eye candy (not that he's not talented too, of course) which means ...

6. PROMOTION!! They will promote him. And since this is CBS, there will likely be a helluva lot more promotion for him ... probably pre-show will offer more promotion that all three seasons of Veronica Mars combined.

7. Promotion done NOT BY THE CW!!!! Meaning, hopefully no more horrific photos, photo-shopped crap from hell, budgetary concerns to a crazy degree.

8. Finally, Jason's pale, Irish complexion will finally work for the character.

YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Doing the happy dance, doing the happy dance!!!!

Hey, did you know that Joel Silver is producing a remake of Logan's Run for 2010? I just find it funny, because in that interview with OK! magazine last fall, JD mentioned wanting a role in it.

If things go well with Josef...

Hah! I did not know that, but that would absolutely slay me if he did that. Hee!!!!!!!!! Ooh, I have to add another reason I just remembered! :D

was right. Hah!

Between you and Tamar, I am going for 2 days now, answering "I told you so!" LOL. I am so glad to be wrong, though, you have no idea. :)

Hee, love the icon.

Yeah, I gotta give Tamar a "you were right" also because I was worried we'd never hear from him again and she was positive we would. So, GO Tamar!!!!!!!!

The news about him getting this part was the brightest part of my week. (But I haven't really been having a great week.) It's almost like TPTB went 'Okay, we've got this kid that's out of a job now. He's got some real acting chops and he's got a bunch of fangirls that will watch him in anything we put him in. Let's check out fall's line up to see what we can do.'

And man, what a great role for him. I'm going to try to stay on the positive side and not think about how most times I'm enjoying a new show, it's gone after a few weeks. But even if this happens, the exposure JD will be getting is making me really happy!!

Oh, I hope you do!! I know there's always dling, but not as fun to have the joy of sitting down to watch it on TV when it airs.

Word to everything but especially number 6. I am so, so thrilled at the idea that he might get some actual recognition from this. Pictures, promos, publicity - his name out there in the general public. Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled.

Did I mention I was thrilled?
Arabian: Deanarabian on June 30th, 2007 02:39 pm (UTC)
I know!!! Actual, real, honest-to-goodness PROMOTION!!!! I'm already hopefully imagining the EW Fall Preview issue!!!

Thrilled? I join ya! I can NOT stop grinning and just being so dang happy about it!!

7. Promotion done NOT BY THE CW!!!! Meaning, hopefully no more horrific photos, photo-shopped crap from hell, budgetary concerns to a crazy degree.

Amen, sister!

Yuppers to the tenth degree!!! Gah, GOOD promotion for him! The idea just boggles!! I'm so frickin' excited. And we're gonna see him come Fall on our screens again! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
