I feel bad for Fox.
Not so long ago, he was added to "Passions" to inject some sizzle and hunky good looks into the cast. He had an appealing playboy backstory, but he was immediately drawn into a far-fetched (even for "Passions") one-sided romance with incestuous ice queen Whitney. Where was Fox the lady-killer? The high-roller? The flash-and-dazzler? Instead of that, we got a Fox who was tired of high living and was ready to settle down. Uh, great. Just what the show needed.
Fox was well-used in some swimsuit scenes last summer, but everything after that has been a bore. And now the ultimate insult -- the powers that be have added Noah, Sam Bennett's kid, and he has THE EXACT SAME BACKSTORY. But Noah is cuter and it seems like the writers will actually give him some interesting plots to tumble through. All the actor playing Fox can do is look on enviously while he pines for Whitney and fights with Chad in scene after scene after scene.
