Ah, see, I thought his Y&R stint was closer to the time they recast Joey that last time with Tom Degnan, but looking it up, that was a few years later. And maybe, presuming he was living and working in LA, he didn't want to move back to NY. Still, I've seen him in some guest spots and I think he could have been a compelling older Joey. He would have had more oomf than Degnan, IMO.
Thanks for the backstory on the Kevins. Sorry, other Kevins, but my Kevin is now and always Dan Gauthier.
And speaking of Kevin...
This reminded me, and I'm sure it was discussed at the time over on TWoP, but it's kinda crazy Kevin had no presence in the 2009 KAD Killer story, even as a fly-in appearance. Neither did Rachel, really, even though she arrived with two months or so left in it. Sure, you had the originals in Powell and Zach, but if you're already dealing with a recast Todd and then decide to recast Rebecca, I don't think anyone would have minded Gauthier and Duplaix being in there.
And now I'm imagining Kevin and Kyle/Fish interaction re: their brotherhoods in KAD. They could have gotten beers and talked about how they think Kim marrying Clint is nutso! Kyle could have mentioned he knows Natalie because he blackmailed her slash stripped at her bachelorette party!
