  • minus Hayes MacArthur sure, though it could be worse, it could be Kyle Bornheimer or David Walton. Thankfully they’re unavailable because they’re tanking other projects

    • Who wastes their time hating on hard working actors like all those you mentioned? These are all good guys trying to make a living doing what they love. What have you ever done? When you get your own successful show, you can spout your negative bile. Until then, back to the car wash with you, worm. Your break’s over.
