Before there were characters like Eli Goldsworthy and Craig Mainning, Degrassi’s first leading man was Joey Jeremiah. Chris Tarpos interviews former Degrassi Junior High actor Pat Mastroianni on Degrassi’s longevity, and whether or not he’d ever return to the show.
I enjoyed his comments very much. I have to admit that the old phrase “You can’t go home” again applies here. They were great in the first 3 seasons of the Degrassi version that started in 2002 again. Bringing them back now would seem contrived and hurt new characters that we need to know. I miss him and especially Melissa DiMarco’s character as the sexy teacher and later Principal. Plus she was Peter’s mom.
