This might be premature but I always knew Billy would move to bigger things. He is so good on DAYS that I had thought when he first started that he would be gone soon. Glad he’s been with us all this time. I am happy for him no matter which way he wants to take his career.

I’ll miss Billy on Days; however, I am happy that he is doing well.

after Michael Muhney.. before… after… currently… Billy Flynn IS

ALL that I want to dream about

oy I’ve reserved my passion

looked after him … prepare your nest young man… you have all the instinct to walk this path.

I’ve read the “rumour mill ” on line as well… that he may well be on his way OUT

how disturbing is that NOW ? my heart be still

just as I’ve read on line… ie: Eileen Davidson… that @DAYS asked “sony” for the opportunity to work with her again… and @Sony said no…. this I read.. after she announced her departure from Y&R. which is nothing more than posting… other than.. will we ever see her back on daytime ? so it goes

Billy Flynn and Eileen Davidson… just mega watt power house’

I love you

Not sure about the premise; would have to read more about it if/when it comes out. LOVE Blly, though, and am disappointed he left Days. One of my favorite actors on there.

With his looks/talent not surprising he already has other projects in the works.

Plain and simple, Billy Flynn is a star!

Not yet! Work on that stage presence first–and get some more experience under your belt. The movie could be a useful, learning tool for you, but stay on Days and hone your talent also.

He’s gone from Days, Nancy. He’s “already left the building” even though his scenes are still airing.

“Star” is in the eyes of the beholder. I agree with Jamesj. Billy has the looks and the talent and he “shines bright.”

Hey Rebecca,
I haven’t been watching Days (or GH) so I didn’t know he had “already left the building.”
“Star” has to be proved by the audiences’ reaction and by the finesse demonstrated. My perception dictates caution.
I wish him much guarded good luck.

Hi again, Nancy; I could be wrong but I don’t think James meant that Billy was “literally” a star as in a well-know celebrated movie star, or TV star for that matter. I think it was just his expression as if to say, he’s a “star” in his (james’ eyes). Just his own proclamation!

“You don’t have to be a star, Baby, to be in my show!”

I just hope that “my show” doesn’t get cancelled… 🙂

Take care, Friend!

And, again, Rebecca, you get me! Obviously, Mr. Flynn is a soap star, which is inherently laudable. But I characterize him as “star material,” as having “star qualities.” And that star can shine in more than one medium.

Nancy, thank you for your reply. I know we agree that it is sad to see Mr. Flynn leave DOOL. Maybe we can enjoy his talents in other projects soon. Best to you, Friend!

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Lieu Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
