Some major B&B casting news today via Soap Opera Digest.   The series is recasting the role of Thomas Forrester, the son of Taylor and Ridge last played by Adam Gregory!

When last seen Thomas left Los Angeles to head to Paris.  The role had originally been a prominent role, especially when the hot younger Forrester had a psychedelic-berry experience with one Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang).

In the casting call that has been circulated the part is calling for:  “A handsome, tall, Caucasian man in his 20s with a great physique for the part, which is tentatively schedule to begin in June.”

So, put your casting director hats on and put together your wish list and let us know, which hunky young actor would you like to see play the part … or, who would you want the powers-that-be to consider for the role?  Post your thoughts in the comment section below!

Agree Adam if he’s available, if not I would love Freddie Smith (ex DOOL’s Sonny Kiriakas). He really looks the part and is a fantastic actor.

Adam Gregory, for me, was a miscast into the role of Thomas Forrester. I would suggest Robert Gorrie (ex-Matthew, OLTL) in the part of Thomas. I’m happy that they’re re-building Ridge’s family around him. Though, I am dying for a SORAS of R.J., especially with Hope being absent from the canvas. I’m excited about this, though. They should explore his sexuality, too. It still baffles me that in a fashion company and family, not a single one has turned out to be gay or even bisexual. B&B is cutting-edge with the trans storyline, but I would love to see a… Read more »

Always love reading your posts, friend. Agree with you on the gay Forrester idea.

Am happy to see Thomas return but B&B is only a half-hour serial. I would like a solid core of characters and have them used and maybe weed out the periphery. Not into 13 weeks of something only to have it peter out. Conversely, I do not want years of the same story playing out either (Liam, Hope, Steffy, Wyatt). Let’s shape up and ship out. I miss the B&B of old somewhat.

The Forrester’s have been sleeping with each other for 27 years. They have had no time to think about same sex sex. I agree…Robert Gorrie would be good. But knowing B and B….they will hire some unknown with impeccable pecs and vastly limited acting skills. One actor I am impressed with is the guy playing Pete Ross on GH. Not sure he would fit as Thomas….he is blonde….but he is funny and quirky and makes unusual choices and I hope he finds a role in daytime somewhere.

I was always disappointed that they didn’t better use the lesbian storyline. With Days & GH having gay storylines I wish BB would make someone like Hope or Steffy (not necessarily them but like them) bi or lesbian.

Why not Adam…when they keep recasting characters it changes the flow of the show….Adam was who I remember as Thomas so let’s see
him again….

I saw Adam just a few weeks ago modeling something on QVC. I was quite surprised. I thought he was fine as Thomas and I’m sorry BB seems to want to go elsewhere.

What’s the point?

They only showcase the Logan clan.

They had the perfect Thomas, and they did not use him. What a waste!

Don’t know if he is still on Y&R or not, but the young man who played Austin on that show might make a decent Thomas. I don’t know too many young soap actors anymore, all the ones that were young when I was young are now way too old for the role– LOL. But I am glad they are bringing the character back-

Matthew Atkinson is the actor’s name who played Austin on #YR. But I wouldn’t mind seeing Casey Diedrick either!

I’m really happy that they are re-building Ridge’s family in a sense because Adam Gregory made a lot of sense when it was Ron Moss playing Ridge but now with Thorstan Kaye they do need to update a bit. JMW already fits she looks so much like Taylor and could easier pass for TK’s daughter plus she is an amazing actress so thats great but It’s good to see Thomas back & I hope when they do the casting they look at NuRidge & Taylor and Steffy & try to get someone that fits in & looks like he could… Read more »

I hope this means we will be phasing out the Logan-centric era of this show.

As much as I love the character of Brooke, the show cannot be centered around her and her Hope-less daughter anymore.

I never really loved Drew Tyler Bell in the role. He’s a good actor but not totally right for the part. Adam Gregory, though, fit the role much better I think. He’s a good actor and definitely has the physique for the role, so I don’t understand why they want to recast instead of bring him back. I think Casey Deidrick would be great in the role, or maybe even Rob Wilson if they can take him away from DAYS.

Bring Adam Gregory back!!They just gave him bad storylines after the Brooke affair, I loved him as Thomas, amazing actor and one of the hottest, perfect to be Ridge’s son, just write something interesting and bring him back

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
