“During the Q&A, an audience member asked if the guys still talked to the cast and Bohen was quick to respond, “We speak almost everyday [gesturing toward Tyler Hoechlin], multiple times a day. I speak to JR [Bourne], I see these guys at cons and events and things, these two [Khylin Rhambo and Dylan Sprayberry] are joined at the hip so everyone is still best buddies and thank God we get to take that away with us.”
The guys were then asked if they could play any other character, besides themselves, who they would play from the show. Hoechlin responded, “They’re gonna go out and find the right person for the role. It [Derek Hale] was a character I was excited to play at the time and it made sense while it was going on in my life and then when it got to a point it didn’t I was like ‘alright, its time for me to leave.’ Sorry for the boring answer.” Bohen chimed in and agreed saying that he, too, believed they would find the perfect person for the role but if he could see the show in retrospect he would be Peter, but if he could do it over again and choose who he wanted to be he would choose Bourne’s part (Mr.Agent) or the Sheriff.”
“Additionally, there are more than usual straight-to-series orders at the broadcast networks for next season, including drama The Big Sky at ABC, comedies L.A. Mayor starring Ted Danson and Young Rock featuring Dwayne Johnson (plus holdover The Keenan Show) at NBC, comedy Call Me Kat starring Mayim Bialik at Fox, and dramas Walker starring Jarred Padalecki and Superman & Lois at the CW. (Fox also has animated comedy series Housebroken on deck for next season.)
A number of them, including Call Me Kat, The Big Sky and Superman & Lois, were planning to film a pilot episode during pilot season, take a break to assess it before starting series production. I hear most of the shows will now go straight to series production.
Between the projects with firm and blinking series orders, the networks have enough of a cushion to reduce their dependance on pilots. Some observers believe that in the end, the networks won’t necessarily make all pilots ordered this season, with the probability rising the longer the delay lasts. (They will pay off everyone involved.)”
