John Driscoll nailed the role of "Coop". He will be missed. Kudos to the other actors/actresses on GL for their stellar performances during his death and funeral. His light will be missed.
Best of luck in your new endeavors, John. I admire you as an actor and as an individual.

Of all the people the show could have (should have) written off, it should be the characters of Cyrus and Grady. Both add nothing to the show except to acts as fillers. It also defrays from what Americans want to believe - that the bad guy gets his. The writing is getting more and more unattractive, to the point that I am getting closer and closer to not wasting my time watching.

Ugh... I'm literally depressed over Coop leaving the show. Why does he have to die man? I take this show very seriously:p Well, John Driscol, your run has been nothing short of amazing. If by some twist of fate you read this, drop me an email, and let me know if we'll be seeing more of you in the future! (That would make my freaking life) :) Angeljoyx3@hotmail.com Loving fan, Angel
