A couple years back I did an interview with the incredible Del Shores via Facebook. When I went to put it together the messages were lost alas but he had given me a lot of great stuff to use. Including this tid bit about a performer who he really could not stand, in fact if my memory serves me correctly he called him "ungrateful".
Hal Sparks has often talked about why a Queer as Folk Movie will never happen, always eluding to a rift between an actor and producers. What Del told me was that this wicked actor blasted writers and producers in the press, saying that the storylines he was given were terrible and things of that nature.
Instead of punishing the fans, why not just kill off the character, they almost did once or twice during the run of the series. It would be best for the plot of the movie anyways, and it would make sense for the gang to get together again. He would refuse to do the movie anyways, remember he hated the storylines and thought he could do better.
Well that hasn't gotten him very far in his career. Unless of course you consider playing waiters in indie movies an improvement on being a regular on a hit tv show.
