The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been one busy man of late pursuing many outside projects from his day gig at the CBS soap opera including his music career.

Now comes word via Soap Opera Digest that Young is off-contract at B&B, and has gone to recurring status, a move that Jacob is good with.

Young tweeted to inquiring fans on the contract status change: “I want to take a moment to address the rumors that I’m currently off contract. All true, I’m recurring and just starting to shoot a movie for Lifetime. I have been under contract for 21 years and this to me is a blessing. I can now have the time to pursue all my passions Xo”

The Daytime-Emmy winning actor told SOD,  “They do still have me working, which is great.”

So, what do you think of Jacob going to recurring on B&B? Comment below.

Since B&B has become “The Liam Show”, this isn’t a surprise. If Bradley Bell wants to diminish his other actors on the show, then the resulting ratings slide is all on him. Good luck Jacob.

The only time I liked Liam was when he was with Quinn and he was Adam and she was Eve. I had really hoped during this last meltdown he would return to the comfort of her bosom. I loved Deacon, but he became a cartoon character and quickly carted off. I liked Sheila and her weirdness-but she kind of totally petered out and caused no major problems. Main stories have been Bill/Brooke/Ridge and Steffy/Bill/Liam/Wyatt-don’t care for either.

Gotta make more room and air-time for the Liam, Steffy (ugh), and Hope (ugh) love triangle!

It seems many of the contract actors are never on-must be nice to get a paycheck and not have to work-but probably frustrating to actors-I don’t know. Once his character and Maya got married-after all the drama-then the baby-really not much story written for them.
I know he is performing music with Scott Reeves-ex Steven Lars from GH. Would like to see them live.

I do hope Rick remains part of the B&B mix, and that his character gets another great story line in the future. I liked the strength of Rick and the role the character has in the Forrester family as Eric’s son with Brooke, establishing a place in the business and the family. I would like more focus there than Ridge and Thorne, starry recasts aside, their plots have not been exciting or engaging to me. B&B tool too long to bring Ridge back after Ronn Moss departed the show, and the radical nu-look and attitude Thorne is difficult for me… Read more »

if jacob is good with it then so am i – i am so excited about his lifetime movie – he is such a talented actor and i have followed him since he played lucky spencer on gh (2000 – 2003)
tptb/writers on b&b have not utilized his talents in a very long time…………………..

Makes sense since we don’t see him much these days. B&B does have a large canvas for a 30 minute show.

If it works for him, great. He’s very talented.

It’s disappointing, to me, that Jacob Young has fallen off the radar as Rick Forrester. His return was poised as to become frontrunner for the soap, and he has since then fallen into the background as some piece of furniture. This is positively disappointing. Though, if it is Young’s decision, then I support. But it sounds like it was the decision of a dual EP/HW whose positions need to be filled by other people more capable of making better decisions.

Although I could take or leave Rick, I am annoyed at the powers that be for slowly phasing out, and probably getting rid of the Avant family. I had a feeling this was slowly in the works when they married off Nicole and Zende, and then promptly shipped them off to Paris. All this to focus on the usuals. Between the kiss between Maya and Zende, and Nicole refusing to sign the adoption paper’s, they had the potential for a couple of good stories. But I guess the main focus will always be the Forrester’s and the Spencer’s. I wonder… Read more »

I heard the actress playing Maya is going to have a baby in real life, so if that is true then I expect we won’t see much of Maya either in upcoming months, while she is on mat leave–

I will bet money once KM goes on maternity leave her and Rick will be shipped to Paris.

Did Frank Valentini take over as producer of B&B when I wasn’t looking? 🙂

Hey Jim! Good point. I was alluding to Valentini’s decision to put Genie Francis on recurring, as is happening now with Jacob Young. I can’t pass up an opportunity to knock the GH producer… It’s in my DNA!

Smart move, he & Carla Mosley were automatic fast cowards whenever they were on.

I’m fine with this! Jacob is so rarely on anyway, so why not go recurring so he can do other things?
He’s another actor who suffers from the S.O.S. writing and I’m sure he’s bored with acting it just like we’re bored watching it!

Another questionable move by Brad Bell.

I have been a JY fan since he was J.R. on “All My Children.” He was amazing being a lead actor on that show. I started watching “B&B” a few years ago as Quinn kidnapped Liam. I loved seeing Rena Sofer being the focus at that time. Since then, it seems like it has been non-stop Steffy, Liam and Bill. I realize the constrains of a 30-minute show has a lot of limitations. For the past 6-8 weeks, the show has solely focused on Bill’s shooting. During that timeframe, nu-Hope has been on every episode with Brooke, Liam or Steffy.… Read more »

So odd, since out of Eric’s children Rick and Felicia were always the most interesting, and in Jacob Young and Lesli Kay played by the strongest actors. Yet Ridge and Thorne get all the (repetitive) story lines. I just don’t get it.

So sad. This young actor is really good. Was hoping the storyline of an affair would work for him. He needs more to do on this show.

Brad Bell is AN ABSOLUTE FOOL if he thinks that longtime B&B viewers wanna watch YET MORE of the Bill/Brooke/Ridge and Hope/Liam/Steffy silliness!!!!!

BEYOND YUCK!!!!!

Hey Jay you obviously are watching it some whatever happened to RJ? I thought he was interning then I read we have hired two new interns ?? I said a long time ago just because you are raised around a soap writer/producer does not mean you are going to be one Brad needs to step aside and get a new headwriter he is like a little boy who keeps reaching for the next new shiny toy .

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.
