When On-Air On-Soaps spoke with now Daytime Emmy winner, Ray Wise (Ex-Ian Ward, Y&R) on the red carpet at the 42nd Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards about if he would be reprising his role as Leland Palmer/Killer BOB on the iconic series reboot of Twin Peaks, Ray said it he could not confirm or deny at the time, but it was more than 50/50, and it that he hoped that David Lynch and Showtime’s disagreement would be worked out, so production could continue to move forward! Well, it has!

Fantastic news this afternoon from Twin Peaks creator David Lynch is that the bizarre soapy drama that first aired on ABC more than 25 years ago is coming back, and that Lynch is back on board the project too! Lynch announced via Twitter stating: “Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ….. It is !!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network

That was followed up by statement from Showtime’s David Nevins: “This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark (Frost) and David tastes more delicious than ever. Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Pre production starts now!!” From the reports today, it looks like there will be more than the original 9 episodes being filed in the limited series revival!

Next series star, Kyle MacLachlan got in on the news tweeting a pic of some of the more familiar characters of Twin Peaks surrounding him in his role as Agent Dale Cooper in a nod to Wizard Of Oz,  “But it wasn’t a dream. It was a place. And you and you and you…and you were there… Good to be home.

Could this mean that just killed-off General Hospital star Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke Lavery) can return to the revival of Peaks as Dick Tremayne?  We hope so!

Watch the interview with Ray Wise below where we touch upon the Twin Peaks reboot! Then let us know if you are excited to know that Log Lady and all the rest of the clan will soon be back on TV!

He was wasted on Y&R a great actor a stupid storyline. The best guest appearance should have been Shemar Moore/Malcom’s return only two days but a character we all loved and he had some great scenes with KSJ!

LOVED seeing Ray at the Creative Emmys and chatting with him and his wife!! (To me, I vaguely remember his stint as Jamie Rawlins (1970-76) on LOVE OF LIFE!) His win was MOST-deserved as the evil Ian Ward on #YR!!

Expect to see Ray Wise in many genres because he’s been there. I met him at a sci-fi convention last fall where he was most gracious. This was during the time he was being his most wicked as Ian Ward on Y&R, followed more recently with appearances on Mad Men. Coincidentally Nathan Fillion/Castle/Joey on OLTL was also at the show. Going to check out Twin Peaks to get reacquainted with the story.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
