the dude that played Mickey Horton for years on Days of our Lives is retiring and they're getting someone else to play him...

My question is: if everything I heard concerning the current storyline (serial killer) is true and the new writer/producer, whatever is really getting rid of what I affectionately call the "Old Farts" to cater to the younger audience crowd, then why not just bump the old fogey???

I mean they bumped the character's wife for crying out loud, why not have the Salem Serial Killer come in with his black hood thing and Jason mask and finish what he started when the Ol' Mickster stumbled upon the work in progress concerning his wife?

1) Maggie's old, 2) Jack may not have been "old" but he's been around for a while...about 15 years, don't know about TV but as far as music goes, that's FOREVER, Caroline's ancient, 4) Abe's ANCIENT too...

...the only exception as far as victims go is Cassie.

So why not kill off Mickey?? This is disturbing...no one else would take Mickey's place, Mickey ranks up there with Stephano...yeah they might as well recast malfing Stephano and bring him back totally instead of having him on the other hend of the malfing Di'Mera phone line. :P

To make sense, since mostly old people/long established people that've been there for ages have been let go, why not kill off Mickey, and *GASP* kill off that annoying twit Alice Horton?

I mean for a while I thought Alice was cool, after I got used to her and nothing was happening so far as Hope and Bo being separated (back then during the many separations and stuff and Alice going on and on about "Gina is Hope...Bo and Hope will be back together, Bo and Hope, Bo and Hope..." and I was like "How the heck do you KNOW!!???!!?? yOU DON'T KNOW THAT!!")....

...Then at Roman and Kate's wedding when the cake was ruined, what does Alice do???? Brings in DONUTS!!! I mean come on!!! Yes, the character is best known for hoping, for good matronly advice, for thinking of dear departed Tom almost ALL the time, and for donuts... but let's get something straight here...

... do DONUTS really stand in on the same ground as a WEDDING CAKE?????? COME.....ONNNNNNNN!!

I say if the guy that plays Mickey is retiring, kill off Mickey...and then kill off that annoying Alice Horton...if it is true that the serial killer is really a story device for the layoffs and the layoffs are a vehicle to cater to the younger demographic then go ahead and kill off all the stinking old farts! Especially Alice since that "Donuts for Wedding Cake Substitution" really took the annoyance cake (no pun intended)!

What a great post! But seriously Mickey is GONE!! I didn't know that... I loved him, but his storyline with that h0, Bonnie is really cringe worthy! But seriously, it's sadden me that he is being recasted.

Anyway, what is up with Alice, in real life, she is ill cause she never ever stands, she always sits on the side, something I missed/ I know she's old, but WTF.

AWWWWWWwwwwww come on! you have to keep Alice...shes awesome. I am upset that Mikey is being replaced. I hate when they switch people for characters.
And it is true that they are killing off alot of the older cast members to hire newer younger ones if their place. Tony is going to be killed off as well, which is dumb because he was already killed once and now they are killing him again?
Oh well...I'll still watch the show :P

Re: now what is that face???
hahah now I get it...

I usually rant about silly stuff usually...and stuff I don't understand.

Irritations and frustrations are like anger...bottle them up and you'd explode.

Uh-oh, I said "explode." Are you going to blow me up now? :P
