This weekend, still a bit shocked by the news that "Melrose Place" is dropping Colin Egglesfield (Auggie) from its roster, I ran into several fans of the show who were feeling similarly.
Even series star Michael Rady
(Jonah) -- whom I saw at an Ed Westwick
-hosted event for artist Todd DiCiucio
's Heartstrings exhibition
-- was surprised and saddened by the producers' decision to write Egglesfield out.
"I can't believe they're letting the good-looking, chiseled guy go," he said. "That's like getting rid of Grant Show in the first season."
Agreed, Mr. Rady. Agreed.
But "Melrose Place"'s loss will be another series' gain.
Can we get Colin cast on another show asap?
Some of the suggestions I've heard over the past few days?
-Carter who? Colin should swoop in to take Serena's mind off that Basin boy on "Gossip Girl"
-Let's see him in some sort of futuristic/sci fi series, like "V" on ABC
-Colin has "Grey's Anatomy" guest star arc written all over him
We want to hear your genius ideas.
Show your support for Colin by writing in the comments section of this post.
