A little levity is always welcome on daytime drama but let’s not get too crazy with stunt casting or silliness. This is not B&B!

RIGHT ON, Iakovos!!!!! It’s bad enough that B&B GOES OVERBOARD with the stunt casting. The last thing that I wanna watch is more of the same on Y&R. NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!

Later.

I don’t like all of this guest appearances by these actors who have no connection to Y&R. It pulls the focus away from the show itself. The point of this stuff is to get headlines like this (or, in the case of Julie Chen, a blatant attempt to market another CBS show on Y&R).

IMO, this type of stuff is NOT helpful to Y&R. I have a high opinion of Sally Sussman and think she has the training and the ability to properly write for Y&R. I am very surprised that this type of stuff is occurring why she is the head writer. (I’m wondering if this type of thing is being dictated from the corporate level and Sussman has no option but to “hold her nose” as she writes a scene for these alleged “stars.”).

Don’t judge before the story itself has actually played out. Can’t main characters interact with other people except themselves?

As if Los Angeles is only populated with Logans and Forresters.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.
