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!

This is amazing news for the long time fans who’ve watched for years and years. So excited to see James and Sheila meet after so long! 🙂

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.

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!
