^ Yes! I don't think Jack would have stuck around if TPTB didn't feel like viewers saw something special in him and his connections with the other characters, especially Eric and Shawn.

Yeah, his character had to work for the show - & I bet he did better than they could have hoped

^ I think so too. We saw plenty of examples of actors/characters who only appeared in a few episodes. Clearly TPTB were very impressed with Matthew/Jack for him to stick around as long as he did.

They must have done, but I think they wanted him to be a more longterm character anyway, considering he was in the credits from the start

Ooh, that's a good point. I totally forgot about that. Let's also remember that Jack was Shawn's brother, and that it would have been a total waste if TPTB had reunited them only for them to drop Jack after a season.

Yeah, it honestly would have felt like a huge failure for the writers if Jack didn't work, after introducing him as Shawn's brother & making him roommates with Eric in his very first episode

^ I agree. TPTB really did take a chance when they brought Jack/Matthew on the show. They must have had a lot of confidence that he would deliver, and if you ask me, he definitely did.

They did, I expect they looked really carefully at actors for that role, & Matt was perfect for it

I can buy that. I am a little curious to find out which other actors were up for the role. I wonder what sealed the deal for Matthew.
