Does Josh Bowman Want Out Of REVENGE?

Fans of the ABC primetime sudser, Revenge, have seen the character of Daniel Grayson vacillate from good guy to pretty bad guy, to amoral guy to heartfelt guy! And that has left his portrayer Josh Bowman in a conundrum!  So much so, he now tells TV Guide that he wants the writers and producers to kill him off by the end of the season!

Josh related, “I’m trying to pitch a Daniel death by the end of the season. I love working on the show, but I’m just being honest. My character has flip-flopped the most, and it’s been so hard for me to play.”

However, it seems like if the powers-that-be were to make Daniel a true villain, where Bowman thought the character was headed, perhaps that could entice him to stay?  Josh said on Daniel: “He should be despicable, disgusting and emotionless — worse than Conrad. Everything that he never wanted to be times 10! For me, that would be fun and the only way to keep him around.”

So, where do you think the writers should take the character of Daniel?  Make him a true villain and all evil?  Or, do you want him to be the good guy?   How would you feel if Josh Bowman left the show?  Weigh-in!

I agree that Daniel is all over the place so I understand the frustration of the actor but I am 100% opposed to actor’s dictating storyline.

I see cancellation is on it’s way. Anyone who makes a statement like that knows the show is done and done.

I think he should be grateful he has a job in a highly competitive industry. Hard to play? He’s supposed to be an actor, not a model.

I agree.
And I would think it more interesting to play and all-over-the-place character than one that’s always the same. He gets to show so many more sides of the character.

This season, the show has the feeling of being ‘too all over the place.’ So, I agree that it’s difficult for the actors, not just Josh. Even Emily has been flip flopping in her intents. Could be this is the last season. Time will tell.

The character of Daniel should be made to be all evil like his Dad. Also, keep his clothes off lol As for the show being cancelled, I don’t think that will happen if the Mentalist leaves. The show is doing respectably on the toughest night of the schedule. This year has been great, so if they keep up the great plotlines they’ll stay on IMO.

I think that season 3 of Revenge has been terrific and the unknown character direction of Daniel from week to week leaves the viewers guessing. The writing is well done and easier to follow than in season 2. I look forward to a new episode each week and it is frustrating to learn that the series won’t be returning until March.

They need one Grayson with morals unless they are introducing Conrad’s children from his first Marriage; maybe they are the good Graysons.

I love that Daniel has been a moral compass, especially now that Jack has gotten so feisty! My vote would be for him to stay more good than bad. The great thing about the show, is that there is so many ways to play all of the characters!

Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you! Original plan was for Daniel to die midway through season one anyway.

P.S. There are hundreds of good-looking actors who would be thrilled to do whatever the producers want in exchange for the generous salary Bowman makes. If I went to someone and told them I hated my job and disresepected my boss, I’d be fired the next day!

Give him his wish…never liked him anyway, so buh-bye, Daniel, don’t let the door hit you on the way out!!!! Quite frankly, Patrick is the son (of Victoria) with all the delicious charisma and inborn villainy…bring him back! Revenge needn’t look for another bad boy….they already have him just waiting to return!!!!!

This reminds me of Jessica Biehl’s “Mr. Spelling Please Kill Me Off!” tantrum. She didn’t get killed off, but she did get written out only to return a few years later as a frequent guest star when she found Hollywood wasn’t as ready to make her a star as she thought. Eventually, she did get to relative stardom, but it was long after Seventh Heaven was canceled. David Caruso? Same deal. Hot show, wans’t happy with the “direction” of his character, quit to go do more satisfying things and found the work wasn’t there like he thought it would be.… Read more »

I call it the Catherine Oxenberg Syndrome– unknown gets cast on hit show, gets a lot of hot air blown up their backside and decides that they’re too hot for TV. Time will tell, but Farrah Fawcett is the only example I can think of that actually worked out.

True…and even she was not to the level she expected/desired. Though she worked quite a bit at first and ultimately THE BURNING BED gave her the legitimacy she’d craved, no one can argue that her career was red hot–her celebrity perhaps, but not her acting career, in any kind of sustained way. Biehl is settling into her own middling level of celebrity–consistent supporting roles in big movies, strong (enough) performances), and arguably more famous husband, BUT she has not accomplished anything she couldn’t have accomplished filling out her 7th Heaven commitments (maybe with a few more outs, not potentially blowing… Read more »

I love Daniel and hope he stays on the show! I like him much more than Aiden and Jack and quite frankly don’t feel the chemistry between Emily and those guys like I felt between Emily and Daniel in the first season. I hope Emily and Daniel get back together. He started out a genuinely good guy and got played as a fool. Who can blame him for shooting Emily! I think they are more than even. Now. Conrad and Victoria are the villains, not Daniel. Please keep him in the show!

I am mad Daniel die it’s getting better and better each day but I was Sad when Daniel died but I still love the show and will keep watching it I love Emily will see what Victoria does now to Emley since she’s gonna think Emily killed in

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
