B&B's John McCook On His Crossver To Y&R & Taylor & Eric's Sexcapades!

The Bold and the Beautiful’s John McCook (Eric) will be seen on upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless on March 18th and 19th, when Eric Forrester comes to Genoa City to help Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) with the perfect gown for her nuptials to Victor!  As this will be Nikki’s fourth wedding to Victor, Eric is hired by La Nikki N., to design the gown for the big day.  What is most interesting for long time Y&R fans celebrating the big 40th anniversary of the show all month long, is that McCook’s first soap role was that of Lance Prentiss on the number one soap!

TV Guide spoke to the soap veteran to get this thoughts on his trip to Y&R and Eric’s recent B&B hook-up with Taylor (Hunter Tylo)!  Here are a few excerpts below:

McCook on Eric helping design Nikki’s 12th wedding dress, and participating in the wedding sequences:   “It’s another Forrester classic! It’s not a dress for an 18-year-old girl. It’s a grownup dress for a grownup woman. Melody Thomas Scott looked beautiful. It had a nice train on it. (Laughs) That’s about all I know. It had a train! I was too busy sweating my ass off to notice anything else. They sat me next to a roaring fireplace during the ceremony. I’m, like, ‘What the f–k? Couldn’t you put somebody else by the fire…like somebody under 60?’ The actors from Y&R refused to sit there so they gave the chair to the poor guy from the other soap across the hall. I was sweating so bad people thought Eric was nervous about the dress. I said, ‘That’s not nerves. I’m roasting to death!’ But, otherwise, I had a great time. Eric has scenes with Lauren and Michael, Neil, and Victor and Nikki, of course. Eric Braeden (Victor) was in a very good mood that day. (Pause) Uh…I don’t mean to imply that’s unusual. (Laughs)

McCook on Eric sleeping with Taylor on B&B: “I  didn’t want Eric jumping into bed with just any available set of boobs, but he’s a horndog and he’s been alone for 12 weeks. That’s eons in soap time! Hey, he wasn’t getting any from Stephanie. He’s probably gone five years without sex. Her death freed him up to sniff around the neighborhood. Yeah, people are shocked, but we need this kind of tension and excitement on our show. Any publicity is good publicity, as long as I don’t have to look at it. I don’t go online because it scares the s–t out of me. I don’t want to hear all that negative stuff. I’m just happy to contribute to the show and be working in a storyline that impacts a lot of characters. I don’t need the rest of it.”

So soapers, what do you think of Eric coming to Genoa City to help Nikki? And Taylor and Eric as a couple? Weigh-in!

I don’t like B&B, j(just marking time until AMC & OLTL are back!) but I like Eric and it is great that it is making Brooke go nuts! I think it will be fun to see him on Y&R!

Now that Jabot is getting into the fashion business I suspect there will be more crossovers in the future between the two shows. I do think it is in Eric’s character to want to sleep with Taylor- he is and always was as John put it – a horndog- but I was surprise Taylor when along with it– maybe she has been hanging around Brooke for far too long that now she is following in her footsteps by sleeping with every Forrester male in town, except her son of course.

She has already slept with the people Brooke has been with. She has even been with Rick. She doesn’t really have to wait for that.

Mary SF

That is what I meant- by sleeping with Eric Taylor has officially slept with every Forrester male, just like Brooke did. And the son I was referring to was Taylor’s son- Thomas- she can’t sleep with him for obvious reasons, but I thought if I didn’t mentioned that someone would call me on it since Thomas is a Forrester male. But thanks for giving me a chance to clear that up because I did word it in a way it makes it sound like I was talking about Rick.

I am loving that he is crossing over to Y&R for a short period of time. I have always kind of wanted Eric and Nikki to connect. But that’ll never happen.

As for the Eric/Taylor storyline, I am absolutely disgusted and disrespected by it. It’s completely wrong in every single sense of the word.

Beti

He is crossing over because he is designing Nikki’s wedding dress when she gets married the week of the 18th to Victor

I love Eric. JM is a great actor , but underrated and rarely “scripted” . I love him with Taylor they look good and stable together, and i love the idea of HunterT have more airtime, and being the Forrester matriarch which is very well deserved.but i m not going to cheer, I am thinking all the childish /envious stunts Bruk is gonna pull to separated them as she is a useless character with nothing better to do than annoying people… We know how Junior write and for who!! I wish CBS would ask Eric/JM to move with Taylor/HTylo to… Read more »

John McCook… is handsome…. sexy.. and a viable Man….

why shouldn’t he… it’s his harrah on the show….

JOHN McCOOK – still handsome after all these years. I like that he’s in to Taylor. talk about much needed story and potential for “HOW” Taylor would Queen B&B… looking on as matriarch Stephanie and closer than Taylor, Brooke had her chances… That allegiance Taylor had…

heck… i would….

this gives hunter tylo… some much needed press and stepping up…. this gives Taylor more relevance and shares her stifled feelings… all these years later? she respected Stephanie….

Great interview !!! =D
I Love Eric und Taylor together !!!
After all the honey that’s been drizzled on him and the lemon bars he’s been stuffed with Taylor is a welcomed breath of fresh air. Hope their feelings and relationship just continue to blossom, bloom and grow. And thanking the Lord that it’s not one of the Logan hags…..

I’m so glad Hunter is getting more airtime and front and center where she belongs!…it’s about time Brad Bell woke up and gave the fans what they’ve been asking for…I really wish Taylor haters would lay off the comments about Hunter having work done it’s so old and played out…I bet she looks a million times better than some of the people hating…Hunter still blows the older crowd out of the water in the looks dept if u ask me…you wanna talk about a bad lip job u need to look at Lisa Rinna from Days now she looks horrible!…I’m… Read more »

Taylor and Eric is very gross. Hunter is a terrible actress and I loath Taylor. KKL is a better actress. Stephanie chose Brooke as the matriarch not Taylor. Stephanie will turning in her grave on what is happening. Taylor never got caught or always find the way out. Brooke has always admitted her mistakes, unlike Taylor. I don’t know who writes for BB but is has been crap. I have stopped watching and but watch when Stephanie died, you can she became very close with Brooke, unlike Taylor. Brooke or KKL has more fan sites than Taylor/HT.

Sanctimonious Taylor! She is awful. I no longer want her with ANYONE.
Not to mention, if I have to see her fake boobs in another negligee, I’ll probably barf.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
