Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) continues his hot primetime television career with news this week that he is set to play part of a core family that Annalise (Viola Davis) counsels in the second half of the season of ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder!

According to TV Line,  Bethel, the former star of The Young and the Restless and Hart of Dixie, has landed the role of Charles Mahoney, the Ivy League-educated son of Wallace played by Adam Arkin.  Wallace is said to be a Warren Buffet type who’s quiet and observant, but knows how to command a room when he wants.  And looks for Roxanne Hart to play Sylviam, the tough yet distinguished and smart socialite mother of sexy Charles!

Look for these three to make their first appearances  on HTGAWM when the series returns starting on February 11th.  In addition, the report goes on to say that it is possible Bethel and his on-screen parents may carrying over into season three once the show is greenlighted with an official renewal.

HTGWM showrunner Pete Nowak previewed on how the new trio play into story: “The Mahoney family plays a really big part in a legal case in our last six episodes. They’re very wealthy people. It’s a murder case, and it involves Annalise in a big way.”  One other thing Nowak noted was that the Mahoney clan is in no way connected to any of Annalise’s prior clients, or to the people in her inner circle.

So, what do  you think of Wilson’s new role on How to Get Away with Murder? Will you be checking him out on the series?  Comment below!

Good, bad or indifferent, soaps are the best platform for an actor to practice his or her craft.

Many actors can make it in daytime but have a hard time crossing over to movies and television.

Absolutely. I dont hold a higher regard than people who act on soaps or do theater. It is nice to see Hollywood open their eyes and realize how tough it is to read so much dialogue everyday and be different! These actors are so gifted! Thats why I put soap starts a little bit higher on the chain than theater people because EVERYDAY a soap star has to do a whole new script and remember why he or she got to this part in their characters life.

REPORT: Tony Morina and Josh Griffith IN As New Y&R EP and Head Writer?

Now that Mal Young is out at the number-one soap opera, that left the executive producer and head writer positions open.  But according to a report from Daytime Confidential, Y&R has replaced Young with two veterans of the soap genre.

First, the report says the new EP will be Anthony “Tony” Morina who has been with Y&R since 2004.  Morina has also produced and worked on Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach, Port CharlesGeneral Hospital and All My Children.

Second, Josh Griffith (Pictured here) will take over the head writing duties.  As many know, Griffith had been with Y&R several times in soap career.  He was Co-EP from 2006-2008, and named head writer two other times in 2007-2008 and 2012-2013.

Y&R has had several changes at the top now over the last few years:  Mal Young took over from when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden departed, and their tenure was short lived.

So, how do you think Y&R will look and feel under this new regime if confirmed? Who would you like to see come back to Genoa City and exit Genoa City? Comment below.

Mal Young Exits As Executive Producer and Head Writer At The Young and the Restless

As many had predicted, Mal Young is gone from The Young and the Restless as the series executive producer and head writer.

Young confirmed his departure from the show via ShowBiz411.com with a statement “Just arrived in London for the holidays. I felt like it was a good time to move on. Never a good idea to get too settled on a long running soap and I achieved all that I and CBS set out to do: improved scripts and production values. I have a project of my own that I’ve been developing and want to pursue that now. Plus running a show like this is all consuming and want to get a bit of my life back – and see my family occasionally!”

Ratings for the top-rated series have been down since Young has been in charge, and in addition, several fan favorites given less airtime, or dropped from the show, while plenty of newbies brought to the canvas.

So, what do you think of the exit of Mal Young from Y&R? Comment below.
