I was all set to welcome him to The Rookie, which hasn’t been as good as usual the last few episodes.
I am very disappointed to find out he would not be playing a cop, as we could use another rookie, since the others have moved ahead. Iam sure Jason will do a good job regardless, can’t wait to see him.

I love the Rookie – although I admit to liking all the regular characters more than Nathan. This role description sounds like something that would suit him so w/b interested to see him. I always like seeing soap actors that I’m familiar with in other roles.

Didnt take long for Arturo and Mia to move on to brighter things after Josh Griffith and y n r fired them while they were in the middle of a hot story!
Congrats to both of my fave ex-Rosales!
He might aswell fired Lola too considerimg he dumped her out of the Kola pairing and triangle with Summer,and she already found Supergirl. Wow, come to think of it , Josh really did the Rosales dirty only to make room for Theo and Michelle Staffords massive return!!!…oh yea and we see how that all turned out…

I agree I was upset that they got rid of all of the Rosales family except Rey and Lola. The Rosales family brought excitement and fun to boring the young and the restless. So glad Sasha Calle and Jason have made it to the big time .Oh and Mia has a great part in playing Selena’s sister.

To me, the mistake Y&R made with the Rosales story was introducing four new characters within a short time and then giving them ALL major stories. Viewers need time to get used to new faces and have them worked in slowly, the way GH has done with Chase, Sasha, and Trina — now all good and welcome characters. (I’m so mad at Willow for choosing wimpy Michael, I can’t even see straight). I’m sure Jason Canela will do just fine…though I’d rather he had stayed and Rey sent packing, especially now.

Soaphound Hi, I liked Arturo and Lola, but Mia was the ultimate two-timing witch, and Rey is acting spineless with no self respect with what he’s been putting up with Sharon.How could he even sleep with her, thinking she’s maybe wishing it was another man. Sorry, I shouldn’t have gotten started with that mess. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before or if you agree with me, but I think Willow is Nina’s daughter, not Nell and and keep waiting for her to see the heart necklace on Nina and tell her that her necklace disappeared from her jewelry… Read more »

I love the Rosales family, but you’re right, Soaphound, the entire family was force fed to viewers way too rapidly. Too bad because all four actors are talented, charismatic and unique. I couldn’t agree with you more about Willow and Michael. Not only are they utterly boring together, they’re kind of, for lack of a better word, ICKY together. Yuck. Michael and Willow manage to be both boring and nauseating together. Millow makes me ill-ow.
