He’s just a humble groundskeeper who loves the game of Big Brother. He actually wanted to have his beard shaved but the show doesn’t want to let him do that. he actually looks very young without his beard.

He sounds like a real nice guy…i dont watch reality…but if he can help bring more viewers to daytime and they stay, im all for it!!!

It seems to be that real and dedicated Actors are seeking out roles and in need of work, especially considering the lack of daytime dramas being produced. I don’t mean to sound “preachy” but show-business or should I say the so-called “entertainment field” most certainly isn’t what it used to be with all the Reality garbage out there. I’m not a young guy anymore but I can tell you if I were a young actor today I would feel challenged by the lack of dramatic acting opportunities.

TOTALLY AGREE….what qualifies for an “actor” these days is disrespectful to those who actually did their time and studied, honed their skills and worked their way up the ladder!!!! SMH I don’t wwatch ANY Reality shows for that reason! It’s ALL Trash!

Acting as a profession has always been and always will be highly competitive, and the advent of reality television certainly hasn’t help, but this is just shameless cross promoting of CBS shows. Donny isn’t the first BB fan favorite to get a bit role on the soap. It isn’t a steady gig, although if Donny is given some lines, he could be get his union card and go for other roles, but based on what I saw on BB this summer, this guy isn’t likely to go the Hollywood route.

I have known actors, and those who are truly passionate about the craft can be out doing regional theater for hardly any pay and they are happy. The fame and money that comes from a hit television series or movie isn’t a reality for most working actors– those who are seeking the fame and money usually end up on reality shows– nice twist of irony isn’t it?

Donny’s a sweetheart– not sure he will feel comfortable with all those Hollywood types, but wish him well on his appearance–most likely it will be just a walk on, or a short term gig.

Big Brother was pre empted in NY last night, So here I am settled in to watch. Halfway through episode I click on MichaelFairman soaps and BAM the episode is spoiled for me. There should be a 24 hour rule on posting spoilers or at least a warning. So if the show comes on at 8:00pm , you have until the next night at least to watch before somebody ruins it. Just my thoughts

And just mine. Sometimes that happens so i’ve learned to stay off the internet..especially sites that provide East Coast spoilers until i’ve watched the show without inadvertently finding out because I just couldn’t wait. Good lesson to learn. And why on EARTH would you be watching a show you love and surfing the internet at the same time instead of waiting until the show was over??? SMH…there shouldn’t be a rule on posting aired shows…there should just be common sense rules for people on the net..which most of us utilize.

HEY MICHAEL, I AM FROM NC SO I WAS PULLING FOR DONNIE. I ALREADY KNEW HE WOULDN’T WIN CAUSE HE WAS A GOOD GUY. HE HAD FEELINGS OF RIGHT & WRONG WHICH U CAN’T HAVE IN BIG BROTHER. THEY KNEW DONNY WOULD WIN IF THEY WERE IN THE FINAL 2. I HOPE DONNIE SHOWS THEM WHAT A WINNER REALLY IS WHEN THEY SEE HIM ON THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL. HE IS WHAT A REAL SOUTHERNER OF NC CAN BE. SO PROUD OF HIM.

I agree edna I am in the process of moving to nc in oct and I was pulling for Donny also..i think he shows real character and he was very kind to everyone..that is why he lost..they should get that damn Victoria out I cant stand her and derrick

Andrea

My hometown was Emerald Isle, NC, and I too pulled for Donny, as did my husband and father in law, btw we are in TN. Donny would have had a chance to make it to the final 2 if he would have strategized a little more and picked which people to confide too. His only true ally in the game was Nicole. I think Donny might be a little out of place on B&B, but at the same time I think he can pull it off. I really don’t see what the rush in getting Victoria out is, I mean come on people, I think Frankie and Christine both need to get the boot!! Derrick has by far played the best game of the season, as Nicole said tonight, he is another Dan!!

Donny would be good for Brooke because he is just another man, which fits her criteria!

LOL..It will for sure be a short stint..if not just one show..and most likely he’ll have something to do with Eric’s brother…and a fly in the ointment of Pam’s relationship. SO PREDICTABLE!!!

He can be the busboy at Bikini Bar.

I guessing “homeess guy #2” … this can’t a hire for more that an episode or two ….

Vicky… be nice!! You really should have tuned in to know who and what he is all about.. He is a great guy with the biggest heart… He has and had everyone in that house “heart” growing a few notches bigger because they had the experience with him. He is not an actor, but cbs is trying to capitalize on the younger Big Brother Audience to get them to turn into Bold and Beautiful Do not worry.. he will only be there for one or two episode and will not be a main character.. …

Many of you are judging him by his picture.. not cool… Don’t play into that Hollywood attitude…

I agree Vicky 🙂 Donny has a true heart of Gold . He will do a a walk on and drawl in the younger crowd for the show. Just hope they pay him well he deserves it. A good Guy all around

Donnie is not going to take a job Away from anyone, he will do a couple scenes with few lines. I think it is a nice gesture to give him a little attention post big brother. He was my reason to watch Big brother this summer, what a kind, genuine human being. If only he could have won the veto. He would need to win HOH as well to advance. He would win the game if he made finals. I would love to see him on the Amazing Race. I see nothing wrong with CBS milking his popularity.

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”

DARK SHADOWS Sequel In Development By CW

What would a re-imagined Dark Shadows look now in 2020?  Well, the CW and Warner Bros Television have made a deal to develop the once uber popular ABC cult classic soap opera that aired from 1966-1971.

Now in development, the new Dark Shadows would be an hourlong.  According to Deadline, the pilot will be written by Mark B. Perry (Revenge, Ghost Whisperer and Brothers & Sisters.), so he definitely knows how to write a solid twist and turn soap.

The new Dark Shadows will be a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.

The most notable and identifiable character of them all, was of course, Barnabas Collins played by Jonathan Frid.

In a statement, Mark Perry said of bringing back Dark Shadows: “As a first-generation fan, it’s been a dream of mine to give Dark Shadows the Star Trek treatment since way back in the ’80s when Next Generation was announced, so I’m beyond thrilled and humbled to be entrusted with this resurrection.”  He went on to say: “My plan is to take as few liberties as possible with the Dark Shadows canon, while bearing in mind a quote from a 1970s episode delivered by the inimitable Oscar-nominee Grayson Hall as Dr. Julia Hoffman: ‘The Collins family history is not particularly famous for its accuracy.’”
