I love Grayson, but I’m saddened to see him do a project like this- He’s 43, not 23; Hope he’s doing this just for the money. I won’t be watching this kiddie soap!

I’ve always supported Grayson over the years, but this latest project was a BAD idea. I thought he knew he was more talented that just being a ‘soap’ actor- his fans tried to find projects for him that were age appropriate, I’m guessing he just wants to forever be treated like a piece of meat, and not be taken seriously as an actor! I won’t be watching this kiddie soap either, and if he continues to make BAD choices like this, I may lose interest in being a fan too!!

I was one of those former fans whom did try and find work for him, and it was insulting to see him ending up doing a project like this, but what can I say, it was his choice to do it, and with choices like this I’m glad I’m no longer a fan (and he’s not a fan of me either). Best of luck Grayson; you’re going to need it….

We’re all trying to support him, but where’s the support from Grayson for what his fans have done for him??!! Did he once thank-you for your hard work???? Grayson, if he was a person with a conscience would invite you back then maybe I would go back on, as many other fans might. Yes he is working, won’t be watching the show; I’m too old! You found ‘The Good Wife’ for Grayson, and Michael Park did a great job in the role, but Grayson should have been the one sitting in that courtroom chair. This is where my frustration lies: fans wanted more for him, and he’s listening to the wrong people, and taking stupid roles as a result.

I might watch this soap, depending on who else joins the cast. I’m way past the target age for Nick at Night (25), but I hate the fact that this is being produced by that vile woman and soap killer, Jill Farren Phelps!! How does she still get work with her s****y track record?!

Grayson should be James Bond. The only reason I can see that people watching the show is because of Grayson. Well Frank Sinatra did a movie for free and it became a huge hit. Good luck Grayson, get this done and move on kid. 🙂

I felt I had to chime in. I am not sure how many auditions/scripts Grayson was getting over the last couple of years, but I’m guessing he just wasn’t getting the goods with his soap background hindering him. That is, being out of the loop for pilot seasons and all. I often wondered why his networking skills failed him until I read Jill Phelps signed him on here. They worked together on Another World. Maybe the four remaining soaps have never called him up for a role, but Jill thought of GM and called him to work on this telenovela.

I’m just thrilled for G. I hated his Dusty post 2004 and have been waiting for him to play someone else and get a clean slate. You don’t know how much hatred I had for ATWT in its last few years.

My first reaction wasn’t kiddie soap, but more like O.C. where even the adults/parents got storylines. One Tree Hill was like that in the beginning too. Gosh even Mark Derwin is on a perceived youngin soap: The Secret Life of the American Teenager!

I thought Grayson outgrew the soap opera world, c’mon Grayson is this all you think you’re worth? I agree with the above comments; your fans wanted what was best for you, and we got let down. I no longer visit your site either; I’m bombarded with Dutch stuff , and there is no more ‘juice’ or excitement left, especially after your regular; ‘Grayblue’ was axed. (my advice; make amends) I am happy that you are working, but please choose your next gig carefully, and listen to your fans. You deserve more!

So…Jennifer Landon is no better because she hasn’t outgrown the soap world at age 29? Why hadn’t anyone asked why she can’t do any better than a soap? Especially with her pedigree and three Emmys? I wonder what exactly the producers told her when she was auditioning for gigs after she left ATWT.

PS: I guess the message I’m getting here is if you ask a question, help on the site, etc; you will be removed. What kind of site is Grayson running?! Don’t say a peep if you don’t want to be removed!

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
