mackenzie mauzy’s acting really improved when phoebe was killed off. Nope to anything w/ emily blunt after her new film w/c is called “edge of tomorrow” and is being promoted by her and tom cruise at nerdy convention. They changed title from “all you need is kill” w/c is a storyline abt a japanese soldier. But of course tolerant hollywood casts tom cruise to portray a Japanese soldier. Yet another whitewashing movie from racist hollywood w/c bashes Asian americans. Racist hollywood won’t cast a Japanese american actor who’s unknown for a Japanese char. Yet hollywood casts unknown mackenzie mauzy bec her race is not a hindrance to her getting cast.

Flop depp makes this movie even worse. His soap opera remake “dark shadows” flopped. But his film “lone ranger” was disney’s worst flop and it was really racist to Native americans. depp doesn’t even know his tribe and says he is 1/16th native american. Would hollywood have cast an unknown actress who is 1/16th white to portray rapunzel? Of course not. But hollywood won’t cast Native american actors to portray tonto despite the lack of roles for Native american actors. Such tolerance.

Michael, can we request for people to be susoended from posting please. It’s becoming offensive reading someone group everyone in Hollywood entertainment as racist on every other post dispite the topic being something that has absolutely NOTHING to do with race!
I understand people defending causes they care about…or issues that are important to them, but bc’s post are really starting to cross the line and frankly take away the fun of reading comments for fear being constantly offended!
Can ANYTHING PLEEEEASE be done.

“Starting”? Line has been crossed.

I agree that offensive posts should not be allowed. It does detract from the reading.

Still miss her on B&B. I think she’s a great addition to the movie. Don’t know the story, but I know she’ll be great.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.

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.
