The Bold and the Beautiful has certainly delivered to its audience some major surprises and none more so then the return of Kimberlin Brown as Sheila Carter … but that’s not all, folks! Former GH favorite, Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke Lavery) is now also making a comeback to the CBS Daytime drama series, reprising his Daytime Emmy-winning role as Dr. James Warwick.

Buchanan chatted with TV Insider for a bit of the inside scoop of what brought him back to B&B, and while Ian is not contract, it considered to be open-ended.

So how does James come back to the canvas? Eric Forrester recruits the shrink to evaluate the mental well-being of Sheila!  Now the twist on this is both Eric and James were married to the loony-tune. Ian said:  “To keep everything discreet, Eric wanted to go to somebody in the family. (Laughs) There are lots of nutcases in the family, but only one psychiatrist. So here I am! But one of the things I like about James is that he always took the high ground, even though he went off the rails occasionally himself. He always wants to do the right thing. And, of course, Sheila is beside herself, because James and Eric are the two men she loved most and now here they are—all three of them together! It’s like she’s starring in an episode of  ‘All My Exes.”’

Ian began shooting his scenes today on July 5th and will first be seen back on-air August 16th.

So, what do you think of Ian Buchanan reprising his role of James Warwick on B&B? Comment below!

I love the addition of James coming back on the canvas but I wonder how Sheila is going to hold herself when this starts. James could be making twice the salary if anyone remembers to have him counsel Quinn. Either way, I am just glad to see this story being told. I’ve been thanking God every day that Sheila is back with us.

I always preferred Ian as B&B’s James and TWIN PEAKS’ Dick Tremayne over GH’s Duke Lavery.

Hopefully this will result in the return of daughter Mary. B&B could use a next generation trouble-maker with a mama who isn’t afraid to help her baby girl get what she wants.

I’d prefer Daisy over Mary. Daisy is bat sh!t crazy just like her mother.

Alan…Ian in B&B was before my viewing time with this show. But it was fun seeing him in Twin Peaks since I knew him as Duke from GH. Always a dandy of sorts. Also another one of my favorite soap bad guys is in Twin Peaks… Ray Wise/Ian Ward from Y&R. What a performance. Love the promo’s for the upcoming reboot, especially when they play the “music.”

Oh, I hear you about Twin Peaks’ “Dick Tremayne,” Alan! Especially when he took that obnoxious little bad seed psychopath “Nicky Needleman” on the camping trip in matching outfits and his “bimmer” had a flat tire!!!!…OUCH!

It’s always great to see him anywhere. He’s a good fit on B&B. Their gain is silly General Hospital’s loss.

Didn’t Sheila have a baby with James?

Should be interesting. I just hope Eric forgives Quinn.

I’d like him to forgive her, too, yet at the same time she did admit that she loves Ridge as well. Not sure if I would trust her again…even though I believe her devastation is real. I think both she and Ridge really love Eric and are beside themselves thinking they lost his love and trust. And, I believe they’re sorry they hurt him. But, can they really stay away from each other? The show’s been great!

HAVE to agree, with; @Mister Media

” … It’s great to see him any where ”

YES big capital Y – E – S

this turns my heart.

I have to confess…. when it comes to watching – Romance – he fits the bill big time.

if I was seeking romance… even for one night or… in Anna’ case @GH. a lifetime

and that’s what I miss for these two actors. pure sublime heart chock full of loving

Dukes thee Man. his smile… never waver from his dancing eyes. YES we get Duke

even if it’s Dr. James

Shay

GH’s unnecessary loss is B&B’s fortunate gain….but that still leaves our fair Anna without a romantic soulmate! Duke is largely irreplaceable…and any other run-of-the-mill man will simply not do for the “Divine Devane!”

It’s a nice treat for us viewers to see IB regularly, and really, I hope it gives him a good reason to turn down a few of GH’s future lame requests for his return as an apparition or as Olivia’s vision of him, because they simply need to hear the word NO. I would like to see them clean up the show and restore a better vision before Duke returns in any form. I understand the need to focus on younger, cheaper actors but don’t gut out every actor that made the soap great especially the 70s-80s ones from the Golden Era because God knows how long they’ll be around and still interested in acting. Best to use them while they can because everything else has become stale, and FV’s new vision for the show is less than average.

JMER…I could not agree more with your sentiments! The character of Duke, like so many other great GH characters of glory days past, was horribly abused and misused in his last appearance in Port Charles. So, whilst I would like to see him rewritten back into the present tense at some point, your assessment of the poor treatment not only Duke Lavery, but other assorted legacy players, have received at the hands of recent GH regimes is spot on. Let’s hope they wise up before the chance to save both the show and its rich history of superb characters is forever lost to the ages. In the meantime, it’s nice that at least one of the remaining daytime dramas is currently utilizing Ian’s unique talent….he is a valuable soap vet who has such an unforgettable and engaging way about him…not to mention a most dapper manner of dressing!

Fantastic…B&B is so WONDERFUL GOOD…daytime drama at it’s best…So wish the show was an hour for the half hour goes by way to fast…

Also a good time for Taylor to come back. By the way, how old was Mary the last time she was part of the story, please?

Mo

She had a romance with Rick, I believe. I think Sheila was pushing her to do that.

I was referring to Mary, although Taylor did too!

She was around 17 in 2002. Sheila was pushing her to get pregnant by Rick.

Doug Davidson Back To The Young and the Restless

Big news Y&R fans, longtime veteran and fan favorite, Doug Davidson is back filming scenes at CBS Daytime’s top-rated soap as Paul Williams.

The news broke when Eric Braeden tweeted a picture of himself with Davidson that simply stated: “He’s Back”

A spokesperson for Y&R did confirm that Davidson (who had been taken off contract by the series a year ago back in January, which caused quite the social media stir) was back on set filming on Friday.  That episode in which Davidson is in will air on March 25th.

Davidson tweeted: “Okay! So, the cat is out of the bag. NONE of any of this would happen without all of your undying loyalty, support and kindness. All of you are the reason “Paul” is back on the canvas. THANK YOU SO MUCH. has been incredible the entire time. A huge thanks to him as well!”

Doug is a Daytime Emmy winner, who started on the daytime drama series back in 1978.  Y&R did receive pushback under Mal Young’s (Ex-EP and head writer) regime for its misuse of long-standing vets.

Braeden also tweeted with the photo: “I want to thank from SONY, JOSH GRIFFITH and TONY MORINA, for turning the ship around!!! Steve made an executive decision a few months ago and we want to thank him for it!”

So, excited to hear that Davidson is back taping at Y&R? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Dominic Zamprogna Making A Return To General Hospital

After posting a photo from an empty dressing room, Dominic Zamprogna certainly had General Hospital fans interest piqued!  Turns out, Zamprogna is back shooting at the ABC daytime drama series for what it appears to be a short appearance and reprising his role as Dante Falconeri.

As fans know, Dominic departed GH in 2018, after 9 years in the role.  In the photo he posted on social media, Zamprogna is in one of GH’s temporary dressing rooms for the day.  His original dressing room was re-assigned to Josh Swickard (Chase), when Dom exited the show.

The last time viewers saw Dante was in the Sonny-centric episode; where Dante is the mobster and Sonny is by the book.

In current GH story, the character of Dante has been recently mentioned following his wife, Lulu (Emme Rylan) being stabbed by serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom).  Dante’s parents, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) also discussed his whereabouts. Dante had gone undercover on a major case after leaving Port Charles.

From all reports, it seems that Dominic is making a short return, but it will be more than just a one-day stint.  So, stay tuned.

So, will Dante return to Lulu’s side? Do you hope Dominic’s return means more down the line? Comment below.
