Default Re: Richard Hatch and DeSanto

What might have been. Would it have been perfect by the standards a fanfic author like me would bring to the table with my own creative prejudices of how I would have personally liked to have seen things happen? Certainly not. But I would have given it a fair shake and regarded it as the true vindication of what he hoped for.

Richard in one of those columns insisted that his feelings were not about what was in it for him as an actor, but let's face it, that was a crock. It was all about him and Moore ultimately figured that out and knew how to buy him off. I don't blame Richard for doing what he needed to do to get work, but some more honesty and candor from him from the get-go would have been welcome.
