The talented and oh-so-sexy Wilson Bethel is on the move to a new show that soap fans should definitely tune-in for! The former star of The Young and the Restless where he played Ryder is heading to the new ABC sudsy drama, Blood & Oil!

Bethel, who was series regular on CW’s Hart of Dixie , and most recently played astronaut Scott Carpenter on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club has continued to have a successful career in primetime television.

According to Deadline, Bethel will play the role of  Finn, a charismatic but poor businessman, who owns a food truck, and partners up with Kess (Keston John) and Ada’ (Yaani King). 

The ABC drama stars Don Johnson as a ruthless oil tycoon in the lead role, and Chace Crawford and Rebecca Rittenhouse as a young couple who move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history.

The series written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and executive produced by Tony Krantz looked extremely promising when it has its official unveiling in front of the television press at the recent ABC TCA Summer Press Tour, just a few weeks ago.

Watch the official trailer for Blood & Oil after the jump.  Then let us know if you will be checking out Wilson in his new role on the series!

I sure hope he retires that horrific Southern accent he attempted in “Heart of Dixie.”

He was the better of the two considering his sister Daisy was a horrible actress. Good for him, this show looks good and Don Johnson is gold!

Revenge, Scandal, Blacklist, the Following, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, and the list goes on way back to Mad Men and Breaking Bad.. That is the continuing stories, series, that is of ‘now’ not to mention Empire and Mr, Robot .. ((all a world apart, a universe apart, from daytime soaps)) lol ((love my GH!!) and some believe the watchers of primetime soaps/ongoing series would actually be invested in lower than a PG rating daytime soap that have changed little since the 80’s..

He wasn’t a “star” on Y&R. He wasn’t even on contract during his time on the show. His popularity soared after a shirtless sex scene with Jenna. The last time he was on Y&R he was left hiding in a coat closet. Then he got picked up for CW’s “Heart of Dixie”. The rest is history….and a lot more shirtless scenes. LOL.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
