In a stirring and emotional, and celebratory video, The Young and the Restless has released this very special montage of the shooting of their 40th anniversary cast photo!  The tag line to the video reads, “A new cast photo to mark Y&R’s 40th anniversary was cause for reflection, celebration, and balloons.”  And it sure does!

During the clip segment there are soundbytes heard throughout from various Y&R cast members including: Greg Rikaart, Jeanne Cooper, Tracey E. Bregman, Kristoff St. John, Joshua Morrow, Michelle Stafford, and Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few.

Watch it after the jump, and let us know what you thought of it! Then, as the actors paid tribute to the fans in this video, how about we show them some love and let them know here, just what Y&R has meant to us for the past four decades!

Stephen Nichols is in the video but not in the cast photo.

The cast picture was photoshopped.

Steve Burton’s head has been placed on Stephen Nicols’s body.

That is just wrong. Plus, if you look at the photo at the end of the video Steve Burton has been Photoshopped into the picture, up under the Y&R logo (even though he wasn’t part of the cast yet, supposedly…) Then they deleted him from under the logo for the final cast photo they released and Photoshopped his head onto Mr. NIchols’ body. So wrong.

This is the first pic I saw .
When I saw the video, I realized this pic had been photoshopped. http://www.parade.com/celebrity/personality-parade/2013/03/03/who-has-been-married-most-young-and-the-restless.html

Classless and a what the heck are they thinking moment for sure, to photoshop Steve Burtons head onto Stephen Nichols body! How disrespectul to the actors and fans. Guess we are considered to stupid to have seen this blunder with our own eyes.

I saw Stephen Nichols in the video and cast photo. I am not sure what you are referring to. Stephen Nichols is behind Billy Miller and next to Jessica Collins (who is wearing a familiar dress).

I see that Steve Burton was added, though.

The only one I see missing is the actress who plays Adriana, Tatyana Ali, and of course all the little ones that play the children.

It is not on this clip- but there is a photo of the cast where Steve Burton is standing where SN was standing. I don’t know if they photoshopped his head on SN’s body, I think it is more likely they photoshopped SN out of the picture and then took one of SB and added him into it. Also missing from the video clip was Jess Walton who plays Jill, but she was added to the photo

Christine

H. Parson, thank you for the link. That explains it. 🙂

Yeah, I would have to agree that is pretty bad. Steve Burton appears to be wearing the same clothes Stephen Nichols was.

Mary SF, I was pretty sure I saw Jess Walton around the :54 mark because to the very far left I see a red blazer and black blouse, but I might be wrong.

Mary SF, if you look at the two photos carefully, it is obvious they just deleted Stephen Nichols’ head and photoshopped Steve Burton’s head onto his body. Look at the stance and look at the pant legs. Totally disrespectful if you ask me!!

Mary SF
Mary SF

Yeah- I saw that, but when you watch it on the original website, you can enlarge to full screen and if you pause it you will see the lady is not Jess Walton. Most likely she is a stand in for the shot and then they photoshopped Jess onto her spot.

Also the girl standing beside the guy who plays Tyler is not the girl who plays Summer, but in the official photo she is there- so again another stand in I guess. Also I’m pretty certain if the real cast members were there they would have been in the part with the balloons falling on them- and they weren’t.

If only they had photoshop when I was in high school- I could have avoided the torment of yearbook photo day and just have put my face on some other kid’s body lol.

This is so tacky. It’s insulting to Steve Burton and Stephen Nichols!

“The cast photo that we haven’t had since 1912.” 🙂

Ah, Kristoff, you are so funny and I could listen to you ALL day.

Nice to see Bryton James. Haven’t seen him much lately.

Thanks for another nice, behind-the-scenes video, Mr. Fairman.

Horrible thing to do to the fans of Stephen Nichols and also Steve Burton. That photo was clearly played with and photo shopped.

Mary SF

Kat- I did examine the two photos and you are correct, it is definitely SB head on SN body. I guess I didn’t want to think they would do something so tasteless. I wanted to believe they would have the decency to at least take a whole new photo of SB and place him SN spot, but I guess they didn’t. I don’t know who made that decision but I hope they get call on it as being a really dumb move. It comes across as petty and immature-. If I was either actor I would want an apology. Does anyone know if either one has comment on this publically or not?

Kat
Kat

I didn’t want to believe it either and was absolutely shocked when I watched the behind the scenes clip. It’s disrespectful to both the actors, their co-stars and the fans of Y&R.

I have not seen a public statement from either actor. I think someone at Y&R, CBS or Sony needs to issue a statement and an apology. To just ignore it is an insult to the fans!

If you stop the video at 0.24 you can see Stephen Nichols standing in the background. Isn’t he gone from the Y&R? Why was he there?

Kat

Stephen Nichols was still on contract when the photo shoot took place.

This photo shoot was done before they let him go. If you read the posts above you will see everyone is upset because they photoshopped Steve Burton’s head onto Stephen Nichol’s body. SB hadn’t started on the show yet when the photo was taken and I guess someone thought this would be a good idea- place the head of the guy who is now on the show with the guy who isn’t. Personally I think they should do these photo shoots closer to the real event to avoid problems like this

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

So, which lesbian actress should play CW’s LGBT super hero? Share your suggestions and thoughts in the comment section below.

Nina attempts to stop her, but it’s too late,  Next thing you know the cabin is engulfed in flames? Who will get out of there alive?

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
