Max has been my favorite from early on. He gives interesting layered performances and would bring alot to the role of Danny but I think he has yet to convince TPTB. I suspect that they are trying to figure out what to do with this kid given the largely unanticipated public response to Max (not undeserved IMO). The kid is a natural and I think he could knock it out of the park in the part. I'll be curious to see what number that director/producer selects for Max next week. Whatever they throw at him, he's going to have to bring it big!
