Calling all Cortlandts (Cooneys, Warners, Etc.)

With today's big news that Mama Cortlandt, Daisy Murdoch (Gillian Spencer), will be reprising her signature role for Palmer's funeral, let's keep our fingers crossed that tptb can entice a few more Pigeon Hallow natives to once again make the long trek back to Pine Valley. My dream invite list would include:

Ross Chandler (Robert Gentry, 1983-1989) The Cortlandt and Chandler heir apparent, Ross through away his future by raping Palmer's wife, good-girl Natalie Marlowe. Guess which part of the above statement is a lie.
Last we heard, Ross was working for Cortlandt Electronics in the Middle East.

Andrew Preston Cortlandt (Stephen Caffrey, 1984-86) Andrew grew up thinking that Ross was his father... or was the sly boy in on his mother Cynthia's (played by GH's Jane Eliot) plot all along. Well, he really was a chip off the old block when you put him side by side with Palmer. Too bad he is serving time for unintentional homicide (he loosened the saddle on Ross' horse during the Wallingford Fox Hunt at the English Estate... say that three times fast).

Petey Cortlandt (Daniel Kennedy, 2008-09) Can we close our eyes and pretend that TPTB did not let this young talent get away. Daniel Kennedy was everything viewers wanted in Petey: preppy, particular and gorgeous. The Julliard grad should have had the first ticket to LA.

Bobby Warner (Brian Gaskill, 1996-98) Soap-Vet Gaskill has made it clear that he would reprise the role of Bobby in a NY (well LA now) minute. Plus, he was the last actor in the role that ever had any significant screen time with Mitchell. Viewers last saw Bobby runway after extorting money from his brother-in-law Edmund Grey.

and....


Dr. Cliff Warner (Peter Bergman, 1979-89) Come on Y&R, if it was not for AMC, you wouldn't know who to cast on your show (Bergman is joined by Stacy Haiduk (ex-Hannah), Liz Hendrickson (ex-Maggie), Billy Miller (ex-Richie), and now Eden Rigel (ex-Bianca)! Pay back the favour and let us borrow Bergman for one day. What I would do to see Cliff and Nina together again...

AMC MUST bring back Ross Chandler. I didn't watch GL, but I thought Robert Newman looked like he could fill that role. With Palmer dead, and Adam leaving, Ross is the perfect character to bring back. Imagine if he went up against JR for control over Cortlandt Electronics or Chandler Enterprises.

Maybe if we had an address to contact the show that Peter Bergman was on, and if they were inundated with requests to let him visit, they might oblige. Maybe just wishful thinking...

Id like to see Steven Caffrey come back, but he was only on for 2 years.

But how about Bobby Warner and Nina's birth son with Cliff?
