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

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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?

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.

After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Throughout her career Heche appeared on TV shows and films includingL Men in Trees, If These Walls Could TalkDonnie BrascoI Know What You Did Last SummerSix Days, Seven Nights, and Gus Van Zant’s 1998 remake of Psycho.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
