Michael Park has been very much alive, singing and dancing in the Broadway revival of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING. He has been with the show since its opening a year or so ago. Park strikes me as a theatre guy and I read somewhere his family is based in the New York area. It is a shame more television production does not take place in NYC for there is a wealth of top talent. Maybe we will see Park on SMASH next season?

He could come on Y&R as Jack Snyder. Wasn’t it established that Jack and Michael Baldwin were old friends? Besides, Genoa City could use a good detective.

Y&R doesn’t even know what to do with it’s current cast of characters. No need to add another talent into the mix just to be wasted.

They should have a serial killer in G.C. and kill off Cane, Lily, Daniel, Gloria, Jeffrey, Eden, Kevin, Carmine, Daisy, Ricky, Tucker, Vicboria, Esther, Murphy, Angelo, and Angelina and then Jack Snyder is brought in to catch the killer.

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.
