Carmen LoPorto given the ax by One Life to Live!

As many viewers saw during One Life to Live’s bravura Christmas episode last week,  there was a slightly older Sam in the Manning household, when the show recast the youngster with Patrick Gibbons Jr.  However, now comes word that Jack Manning played for over three and half years by actor, Carmen LoPorto, has been let-go to make way, we presume, for a SORAS’d Jack to mix it up with this dysfunctional family.

LoPorto made the announcement on his Facebook page stating: “I got a call this week that they SORAS’ed Jack and I am no longer a member of the Manning Family. It’s been fun and an experience that I will never forget.  Thank You All Again. Here’s to bigger and better things to come in 2011.”

There has been no official announcement made by the series as of yet, as to who will take over the eldest son of Todd Manning.  On-Air On-Soaps wishes Carmen well in all his next endeavors, as he did a great job as the chip-off-the-old block  young son of  Trevor St. John (Todd Manning).

This is a horrible decision! Carmen had more talent in his little finger
than some other ones I could mention. He played Todd’s son
perfectly! In fact, they should have used him more! I hate when they
do the aging kids syndrome. I love it when they can grow with the
show like Kristen, Eddie, and Kimberly McCollough. There’s not need
to age them when they have a perfectly wonderful actor in the role! As
I said, this is a horrible decision. Carmen played the perfect Jack and
he should not have been given the ax.

I was in shock when I read that One Life to Live made the decision to let Carmen go. Epic, epic, epic mistake. This young actor was such a find—a talented scene stealer who has been the PERFECT miniature Todd Manning—I thought for sure that they knew what they had in him and that he was a shoe-in to be one of those rare kids on soaps who got to ‘age naturally’ and who would be on the canvas for many years to come, along the lines of Kristen Alderson. They’re not going to find a fit that good again, in my opinion, and I am extremely disappointed that they’ve decided to take this path with our Jack Manning. That talented young man will be missed on the Llanview canvas!

Really gonna miss the old Jack, played by Carmen…look forward to seeing more of the new Sam. Talk about a scene stealer…He stole the show on the Christmas episode…and bravo to the writers of that episode…So cleverly written!

Eric Braeden On Y&R’s Diminishing Vets: “My Plea To Management: We Have Lost Some All-Time Fan Favorites!”

Outspoken, direct, and wanting what’s best for the show in which he has become a part of its iconic brand, Y&R’s Eric Braeden (Victor) took to social media to let his feelings be known on the CBS soap operas decision to take Doug Davidson (Paul) off-contract, and not utilizing three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Christian LeBlanc (Michael), letting go of Greg Rikaart (Kevin), and the fact that Eileen Davidson (Ashley) has made the decision to exit the series.

Over the last few weeks, fans have been outraged at the news of the series longest cast member, Doug Davidson being taken off-contract and bumped to recurring with this change happening back in January of this year.

Eric Braeden tweeted: “I normally don’t express my opinions reg the casting on Y&R! That’s the privilege of those who produce the show! However, this is a time when I have to make an exception! I’m still on vacation, hence my comment comes a little late: to let DOUGIE DAVIDSON GO is an egregious mistake.  My plea to management: we have lost some all time fan favorites! D DAVIDSON has been with the show for, i think, 39 years, and people have loved him! Same for CHRISTIAN Le BLANC, GREG RIKART, Eileen DAVIDSON (who left on her own volition)!”

As for Braeden’s statement it has gotten wide pick-up via the daytime media and tremendous support on social media from fans of The Young and the Restless.

So, what do you think about what Eric had to say about the frustration of losing, or the show not using ,some beloved and veteran cast members? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
