Dynasty and Santa Barbara Fave, Gordon Thompson Joins the Web Series, DeVanity!

Soap favorite Gordon Thompson, best known for his roles on Dynasty and Santa Barbara has joined the cast of the hit web soap DeVanity for its upcoming third season.

Thompson became a household name starring as Adam Carrington on the ABC smash hit Dynasty as well as its spin-off, The Colbys. He would later join the cast of Santa Barbara as the final Mason Capwell!  Thompson had also appeared on Ryan’s Hope Passions, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless and Sunset Beach.

Thompson will be joining DeVanity as ruthless jewelry magnate Preston Regis. Preston is the biological father to both Jason DeVanity (Michael Caruso) and Andrew Regis (Kyle Lowder), and was the arch rival of Jason’s adopted father Richard DeVanity.

“There is a deep seated hatred between these two characters,” said DeVanity creator Michael Caruso, “Jason will come face to face with his birth father, and Preston will reveal truths about Jason’s adoptive father Richard that he never imagined. Gordon is an iconic star that I have always admired and dreamed of working with,” Caruso added. “He fits in perfectly in the landscape of DeVanity, and I can hardly wait to see him in action. I can’t imagine another actor in this role. He will be deliciously sinful as the father of Jason and Andrew, and I think the audience is going to love watching him spin his web. Gordon’s willingness to join our online series is not only going to introduce him to an all new audience, but satisfy fans of his previous work as well! To say we are ecstatic that he is joining our cast is an understatement. This man is so good at being bad he’s going to put us all to shame!”

Thompson is scheduled to appear in two episodes of the seven episode season, with the option to return for more. DeVanity resumes production at the beginning of June, and will return early January for it third season. For more on DeVanity, visit the show website www.devanity.com

DYNASTY Season Finale: Burning Down The House!

Any soap opera lover should have been drooling over the season finale of CW’s Dynasty. Filled with every signature staple of the genre, and delivered in delicious fashion, the episode left us hungry for what’s in store for when the series returns for its second season.

The season finale was filled with multiple takeovers of Carrington Atlantic, one coup led by Fallon (Elizabeth Gilles) and another by their newest relative, Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) and yet there was another one going on with Alexis (Nicollette Sheridan) using Hank (Brent Antonello) to play the long lost son, while he voted later against Blake (Grant Show), Steven and Fallon. You need a scorecard to follow this, yet the double-cross of a double-cross was fun to watch.

The centerpiece of the episode was Steven (James Mackay) and Sammy Jo’s (Rafael de la Fuente) wedding filled with unexpected guests and shockers, chief among them a visit by soap vet Kelly Rutherford, who plays Melissa Daniels. As his wedding is about to start, Melissa shows up to tell Steven that she is pregnant with his child.

Elsewhere, when Cristal (Nathalie Kelly) who has already had it with Blake and feels trapped in a marriage to him, or is she really feeling that or enjoying the cat and mouse power game, figures out that Alexis has been sleeping with Hank, angling this whole takeover from her angle. When she confronts Alexis, finally the long-awaited mega catfight on steroids occurs (watch it after the jump) and the two women battle it out, until Alexis locks up Cristal.

When Anders (Alan Dale) finds her there and goes back to get the key, none other than unstable Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown) arrives toting a gun. As she is about to have her long-awaited showdown with her nemesis the image of her former husband the late Matthew Blaisdel (Nick Wechsler) keeps coming up. She sees him in her mind, but she actually shoots Cristal and leaves her there to die. (more…)
