Congratulations, Mark Teschner! I couldn’t agree more that he is an amazing casting director. He really hit the bullseye with the new Dillon & Kiki replacement. He found excellent child actors who could play young Patricia, Luke & Bobbie Spencer while holding their own against GH heavyweights Tony Geary & Laura Wright (talk about a risky episode). And, IMO, the additions of Curtis, Andre & Jordan have blended quite seamlessly into the cast. Incorporating established actors with new talent is not easy. Time and again, Teschner proves that he can spot the right person for the role.

Even when casting is spot on, the writers need to take notice of an actor’s strengths. Teschner isn’t responsible for storylines. But, I do think he picks actors who can go a lot of different ways, giving the writers more to work with. He’s not perfect. Shari Belafonte is not the best replacement for Mayor Lomax IMO. Time has not smoothed over that portrayal. But, I’m convinced getting Rebecca Budig for Hayden Barnes resulted in a more complex character than they planned because she does sympathetic ambiguity so well.

Mark Teschner USED to be a great casting director–not so much in the last few years.

Yes, Ken Corday won an Emmy for Killing Will. THAT was the episode KC and his musical team submitted and won for!

This would have slipped under the radar, if Days facebook leaker hadn’t publicized it yesterday. Oops!

We now know that Ken Corday and his musical team created original music for Killing Will – and that Days paid for a real 43-piece orchestra to play it!

Now, put that together with the fact that Days decided NOT to pay for Will’s in-laws to attend his funeral, and you have an awkward fact for those who like to think that all the anti-gay messaging so evident in the Kill Will Daysaster was accidental:

Days paid for new and orchestra-played music to accompany the gruesome murder of their gay legacy maximally-back-burned character! And then they DIDN’T pay for his in-laws to attend his funeral.

Conclusion: they knew exactly what they were doing, and the anti-gay messaging was totally deliberate and planned. (This has of course been obvious to a great many from the beginning because of the sheer number of anti-gay and anti-gay family strikes since Corday employed Griffley. This latest revelation just adds another ugly fact to the gaynocide evidence pile).

Yes that sucks royally and I hope that gets changed. I view these awards as our ‘reward f’or fans’ continued support and viewing of the soaps. It’s a major disappointment( to put it mildly) grrr not to see it aired anymore. Personally my position now is if it can’t be aired for the fans to see ,why should we care who wins what anymore?

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

Listen to “Soap Nation Live Season Premiere 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.

Now, click on the play button at the top left of the player at the top of this post, and hear the replay of the Soap Nation Live! Season Premiere with Laura Wright, Kim Zimmer, Michael Easton, Stacy Haiduk, Jason Thompson, and Maurice Benard.

Nobody Does Weddings Like DAYS … Get Ready For John and Marlena’s

A Jarlena wedding written by DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati can bring with it several things: delicious drama, fun, love in the air, and dire circumstances!  And from the looks of this just released extended :30 promo for next week’s episodes of Days of our Lives that is exactly what viewers can expect.

The question is  … through it all, will John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) finally re-tie the knot?

From the teaser, it would seem there are many expected, unexpected, and surprise guests attending the nuptials including: Sami (Alison Sweeney), Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison), and a person whose face is in bandages in a tux!  And in the finest of soap opera traditions, things look to being going horribly wrong before the wedding day,

But as the promo teases, this wedding is a weeklong event, and someone will not be going home from the wedding when a gunshot is fired!

Courtesy/NBC

And if that was not enough, it looks like Will (Chandler Massey) finally remembers his love for Sonny (Freddie Smith), and it appears a long-awaited reunion may finally may be the order of the day, but what about Paul (Christopher Sean)?

Let’s not forget the last tine Carlivati wrote a series of major episodes for a wedding event – that of the double wedding of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Marci Miller) and Sonny and Paul – and we all know what happened that time!  Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) showed up at the church just in time to drop the bombshell that Will was alive which put a major clink in Sonny and Paul’s portion of the big day.

So what do you think will go down?  Will Jarlena get to say their “I Do’s”?  Who possibly gets shot?  It’s a not-to-be-missed week of DAYS.  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
