  • The guy has zest for life!

    Danny Bonaduce has been run over enough and I am not going to be another Mac truck. Danny is Italian, I am Sicilian, and we tend to have a larger than life zest for life. Not thay can't get you in trouble, lord knows that it certainly can, but it can also give you a drive to do important things in life. Danny, has just got to turn his zest in the right direction. He can act, that is a proven fact, the question is, is he ready to get serious and really try to make an honest career again? Hit the summer stock and work back up the ladder. I truly, believe that this man has it in him for one more try, if he will only give himself the chance!moreless
