At least she is a doctor again and not some random-ass sellout fashion designer. Just a shame it is under Bradley Bell’s pen and executive control. Ashley Jones deserves better.

For what reason ? By the way what happened to the destiny brat RJ? Brad totally destroyed the Taylor character and now he is destroying Thomas . He must really hate Hunter Tylo who his dad wrote for and loved but does it really matter we have a scruffy guy playing Ridge and kkl still playing the horney tramp!

I’d rather see her here on B&B than on GH playing Krissie’s mother figure lover, yuk!

The casting dept must have been high to think she looks young enough to be Brooke’s daughter. Thought she was another sister. So ridiculous…

Of course years ago being younger there was more of a difference but I think now they are catching up to each other. I also can’t see her calling Brooke’s sisters Aunt. Don’t know how long you’ve been watching, but do you know that Brooke had an affair with Bridget’s husband Deacon Sharpe and the result was Hope?

Hi Violet. Only been watching, I think..around five, maybe six years. Was always a OLTL and GH viewer, but started checking out B&B and DAYS a few years after OLTL went off. So, no,I didn’t watch during the Deacon years. I knew Deacon was Hope’s father (was fun to see Sean Kanan the one time he came back since I’ve been watching. AJ was one of my favs on GH so…) But, no! Didn’t realize Hope’s dad is her sister’s ex! I did read Brooke had been at some party and slept with her daughters boyfriend…a costume party… so she… Read more »

Sorry just now saw your reply. I do not get notices anymore when I get a reply. You were right about Brooke and Hope’s boyfriend at the time. Craziest thing I ever saw. I love Sean Kanan too. Did you see when he was involved with Quinn before she met Eric? It was quite the romance, until she threw him off a cliff! He played the same character on Y&R years ago, married Nicki Newman. Our boy’s been around a lot and always played good parts, I miss him.

Violett…glad you got my reply! Better late than never (sometimes those old cliches just really do fit the bill!) No. Haven’t seen Sean with Quinn but I think I remember hearing something about it…I think I also vaguely remember him coming to her apartment she was single to talk her into letting Liam go when she kidnapped him? I THINK…fuzzy because I wasn’t really watching then…and as of yet never watched Y&R. (A few episodes when Steve Burton and Jason Thompson went over…but didn’t continue with it). Who knows, maybe some day (if it’s still on) I’ll give it a… Read more »

On December 3rd, the latest installment dropped featuring former Ugly Betty star Michael Urie who is featured in the cast in the role of Bobby.

 

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.

You can watch Urie do his thing in the role of Bobby in this teaser released on social media below.

Then let us know, what do you think of the concept of the Broadway spoof on soaps? Comment below.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
