I have to admit that I was pretty upset and disappointed when I read that he denied the offer. But I understand his decision a bit better now.
It’s a whole other issue now though. I think he should do it because he’s not doing anything right now and he wouldn’t play her love interest. Plus, it’s been three years since CT started because I remember him saying it was “too soon” back then.
Also, I would not see Mondler. Seriously, think about it. Did you see Rachel and Phoebe when they guest stared? No. Because those were totally different characters. Just my thoughts.
