Soap Net; November 28th, 2005
Matt was all business getting over here! That's
the fastest I've seen anybody cross from the stage!
Matt and Billy appear we see a shot of them
waiting in the Green Room.
Lisa introduces the guys by saying, "What
do you do when you find yourself dying from
a mysterious illness? In Salem you set your
wife up with her high school sweetheart, of
course." They show a clip of Jack trying
to convince Frankie to go along with his plan,
to take up with Jennifer after he has died.
After the clip, Ty introduces Matt and Billy.
Matt and Billy shake ties hand and then hug
him and then Lisa kisses and hugs Matt then
Billy. They all say how good it is to see each
other. Matt salutes the crowd. The crowd continues
to scream. They both sit down.
to the stage!
The director told me what to do.
Ty: All right!
Billy: He takes
direction very well....
Ty: (Cont.) Very
Lisa: Well, welcome,
boys, you look great, both of you.
you! Thank you!
mutters something too.
You know, we just did a DAYS fortieth reunion,
one of the things that Lisa and I learned that does
DAYS does supercouples better than any other
show on history.... in history.... in television.
And, now, we have the new supercouple right here.
points to Matt and Billy and they both give each
other a romantic glance.
Here you go!
Ty: I even came
up with a supercouple name for you.
Billie: Oh, no!
What do you think.
throws up his arms and nods in agreement, Matt
mouths it and laughs.
agrees and Ty is proud of himself.
So, you guys having fun, working together?
Matt: And the
fact that is what you just said about the supercouples,
yes they create these very strong dynamics between
men and women. And we all know when a woman walks
into a room, everything changes for the guy. An....
And it's in the scene too, but when occasionally
they have guys work together there's a whole different
dynamic.And that's really fun to play -- I know
know (speaking to Ty) you've gotten a chance to
do that. And actually women.... when women can
play together that's good too.
nods in agreement.
(Cont.) And every now and then they start writing
great stuff for, you know, two guys.
Matt: And, it....
it is enjoyable, and it's enjoyable to work with
tells Billy that last time he was on the
show he talked about being apprehensive coming
back to the show. Billy tells them that he he
had a harder time adjusting to LA more than returning
to the show. Matt replies, "Because the show
is back in Salem. Billy says he he prefers New
York. He says that he is finally settled in. He
says that the story has finally kicked in after
a slow start, and he wonder when they were going
to do something. Ty interjects that it
was good that it was a slow start. Billy agrees.
can't break them up (referring to Jack and Jennifer).You
know, an.... and Frankie wasn't..... I wasn't here
to break them up, it's just to enhance.
Matt: But he
is also the first boyfriend, the first love. Which--
Lisa: Of Jennifer's.
Matt: Thank you.
Lisa: Of Jennifer's--
Matt: Of Melissa
Ty: Not of Jack's.
Just thought I'd clarify.
Matt: But it's
a very special relationship, and.... and,
we're kinda finding that out. Do.... Does that flame
ever go out. Some people say, "It's over! It's
over!" And I think, you know, it's never really
over. So it's a very interesting, dangerous dynamic.
and Lisa agree that the first love is special.
I mean, that's a difficult story to play.... for
you to play, you know, uh.... uh.... trying to hook
up your wife with your wife with her first love
because you're dying. It's tough to make that very
quite giving of you.
laughs. Ty agrees.
an accent) I am the givah! Ah, Well, it's my feeling
that Jack doesn't.... the best way that he can deal
with death is to basically try to control it. And,
so, he's trying to control everyone around him to
say, "I want you to be this. And you're gonna
to do that. And you're gonna do that. And.... and
Frankie you are gonna be my appointed heir. You
"....you're gonna take my place!" And,
it's.... it's he's so out of the loop of reality.
And Frankie's the one that has to keep pulling
him back. Which he doesn't wanna see until he finally
sees that he actually does care for her, and that
really does freak him out.
I don't know.
Lisa: Do you
have any idea?
Ty:Are you really
worried about Jack dying, I man, 'cause, well, dying
really be honest, do we reeaally think that's gonna
happen, (sarcastically) I don't know.
laughs, including the audience.
All right, you're gonna maybe die for a why and
Ty: Yeah, you
know, death is just a speed bump in daytime.
knock, knock! Exactly!
Matt: I don't
know, it's ah--
he's been dead how many times, exactly?
Matt: I don't
know. I never never.... This is the first time I've
ever approached it. All I've.... the last time just
get hit with a brick on the back of the head and
wake up on an island.
Billy: You can't
kill Jack! You can't kill 'em, he's.... he's....
you know, like a vampire, or something.
Ty: One of the
things that always makes--
Matt: Or a bad
and Billy laugh. Lisa cannot control herself from
laughing so hard.
....makes a good triangle work is trust between
actors. And I know alot of times it can get competitive
in the triangle as well.
Absolutely not with us.
Billy: We ar....
we honestly there's.... that's wha.... that's the
great thing about the three of us.
nods in agreement.
(Cont.) W-w.... we.... we want this to wor.... we
need each other, yeah.
Matt: Billy came,
you know, from New York, he's been doing alot of
great theater and he's injected us with alot of
enthusiasm about working. And Missy loves that,
and I love that....
(Cont.) ....and we feel very fortunate--
Lisa: I bet you
guys all work very beautifully together--
Billy: Yeah we
do, we have a great time!
Knowing you all of you like I do.
Matt: They have
chemistry! I mean, you know, ah.... Billy and Missy
worked together years ago, they could just sit down,
they could turn the camera on these guys....
Lisa: How interesting.
....and just watch them just go!
talks about how it was just like it was just like
he had been working on the show all along. Matt
comments, "Rip van Winkle." Billy goes
on and says that Missy is his favorite female
co-star, and that she is the best, and he says
he even has worked with Academy Award winning
actors. He says he feels so at home with her.
not exactly, but the point tha.... there's already....
I could see there's a different dynamic, there was
different writers, and they weren't trying to create....
the ultimate goal was Jennifer, but they weren't
trying to create something together like what they
are trying to create now.
Ty mentions all the flashbacks they have been
using. Billy thinks it is great because it helps
viewers "embrace the rather than told."
Ty adds, "Embrace the history."
Ty then introduces a flashback from the Alamainia
storyline, with Jack and Frankie locked in separate
cells, not knowing who the other is [TJDS
Lisa kids Billy about his hair style. Billy points
to his hair, "It's gone!"
Ty asks Billy if he remembers. Billy strains to
try and think, but he says he does not.
says that her producer told them that Matt's daughter
Emma is going to be singing on Passions?
She's going to be one of the singing children. Ah,
on Passions, they needed somebody between
the age of seven and nine, and she happens to be
eight, so I guess--
Ty: I qualify!
Matt: She qualifies!
is she's singing, she has to sing this Christmas
carole, the only music we had.... person we had
sing it was Nat King Cole. So she sings it like
Nat King Cole.
How funny is that!
Matt: Which may
be a little riffing going on, but ah....
Ty: Very cute!
So that's going to air around Christmas time.
Matt: Yeah, I
points out that Matt is married "with two
beautiful daughters." And that "Missy
is married with two beautiful children" he
asks since he [Billy] is the single man do they
try to set him up. Billy said Missy tries to do
so. Lisa adds, "I bet Missy has got a list!"
She's working on me, if.... if.... they would write
that stuff on the show it would be hilarious. It
would be great because she gets in there and work
....get Billy worked out, and get him [hard to hear].
says he tried. He and Lisa continue to talk about
is very frank, and -- like Frankie -- no, he is
very.... he asks questions, he says, "What
about this; what about that?" and sometimes
people have been playing something and they don't
ask the question any more--
Ty then tells Billy that Matt says he has "infused
the set with so much creativity that it is contagious."
...and Billy comes in with a fresh eye and says,
"Wait a minute, but why, what's happening,
why are you doing this, why you doing that?"
And it's good! It's good to get challenged as an
actor by your fellow actors in the scene [sounds
like] it's something he's willing to bring in--
says he came in with no fear. He was asked to
return, and that is the greatest thing for an
actor. Billy goes on to talk about the need for
a collaborative effort by everyone.
We've had cameramen and props and wardrobe, hair
and make-up who have incredible ideas, who can help
you with a performance, and they're right there
waiting to be asked--
and Lisa agree.
(Cont.) and you know.... you.... that's also the
part of that, and we as actors have to be willing
to, you know, be.... get their inspiration as well--
....yeah, "receptive" of that as well.
So, (indicating he and Billy, and others) can do
Lisa: And it
sounds like you're making that change right on the
Matt: We're trying.
Billy: Yeah we
....right on the set.
We are. We are.
Matt: We're always
open to, you know, people's ideas, and they see
something and they throw it in, and it's great.
criticism is a good thing.
and Lisa agree. Billy goes on to say that they
[Ty and Lisa] know "that they say we don't
have direction because we don't time."
Billy says he knows he is not perfect and he needs
the suggestions and direction. Ty adds that the
direction daytime actors normally get is "don't
do this, don't this, don't do this." Lisa
adds, "faster, funnier." Billy says
he can understand the directors being busy with
so much that they do not have the time, but there
are others on the set who can. Billy
talks to the audience about how she wished they
could see what goes on when filming since "it
is so out of control" since it is "ninety
pages of dialogue in one day." Billy adds
that it is like "shooting a movie a day."
He says the shows people watch which are great
have they have eight, nine days to shoot one episode,
in daytime they do it in one. Ty adds that then
the actors come back the next day and the next
to do others.
you guys for watching.
They thank Matt and Billy.
Ty: We've gotta
watch Emma on Passions.
Matt: Oh, yeah,
Emma on Passions!
shot of them all saying good-bye.
