A New Manning Kid?
Apparently this is old news for everyone who's better at combing the internet for dirt than I am (which isn't very good), but Carmen Lo Porto (Jack) has been let go.
Word is that they're probably aging the character a bit (will they now actually make him appropriately aged in relation to Dani, his now-older sister who was born a few years after him?). I'm torn. I like the kids who grow up on the show and Jack's been fun comic relief for a while now, but at the same time he's not at an age that has much story potential (though do we really need more teen stories??). I also think Lo Porto's been adept at the one-liners but (argh I hate saying this about kids) does not really have the capability at this point to deliver goods that are much more substantial than that. (Am I officially a bad person now? Oh wait. Am I officially a worse person now?)
What do you guys think? Good move or premature? Any rumors out there about a replacement?
