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.”’

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.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
