Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment

Glad to hear there is more Arturo in Genoa City and Jason is on contract at the top-rated daytime drama series? Comment below.

Hi, Meg,
How? What has Arturo done so far to make him the best thing for anyone?? But, for the sake or argument, elucidate….I mean this in the nicest way….Not trying to be ‘snarky’ or anything. Honest!!
He came into town and ‘slipped’, ahemmm, in bed with Nikki at the first opportunity….or shall I say ‘invitation’??
Regardless, he was quite aware Nikki AND HER SON were his employers, and that she was much older, and out of his league….
AND, married to the most powerful man in town and beyond.
He completely disrespected every rule under the sun by crossing innumerable lines….
When that relationship went up in smoke, he targeted Nikki’s stepdaughter….Victor Newman’s daughter!! Best thing?
Also, my feeling is ( again, I hope I am wrong because the show does need diversity and a “pick-me-up) Arturo has no sister…. if it is his true sister, then, a part of a band of thieves….
Not only that, but Jordi will be part of the “Ali Baba-open Sesame” brotherhood. Ha!!

Guess they’re following the GH playbook, k/kay, because, hey, that has been such a smashing success in propelling the show all the way to fourth place! Having said that, this actor dude would have made a perfect offspring for Sonny C…

A Morgan recast.

Shay

@Timmm…Nah, this guy doesn’t look whiny, immature or dimwitted enough to play the role of Morgan….he seems to have a more suave, self-possessed vibe…like a young Sonny! Besides it’s been awhile since a new Corinthois spawn has surfaced in Port Charles…long overdue according to schedule!

Celia

Not this guy, for sure, Kay. I trust your judgment completely…..and I hang on to your every word, my friend.
I cannot see this guy as having longevity on Y&R…..get rid of him and bring back Noah!!
I will say it again; whether I am proven wrong or not, Arturo is trouble….and, as usual, Abby will get hurt.

Diversity, yes BUT talent to!Then they have this actress who portrays Hillary that is talented and she will soon be gone!

I don’t mind Arturo, at least when he’s reasonably clean shaven. Mr. Canela is an attractive, relaxed, competent actor who has room to grow. Just keep him away from the Barracuda known as Nikki Newman. One quibble: can’t they also/instead bring Robert Adamson back and find a story for Noah? He grew so much as an actor, is beyond handsome, and the character is part of Genoa City’s core family. They found niches for Mariah and Abby, why not sweet Noah? Seems to me a perfect time to appoint him VP of Dark Horse.

Oh, I agree. The four core Newmans are all so flawed. I do root for Nick as I am weary of pointless Victor shenanigans, Nikki waffling, and Victoria lacking a spine. Noah had a conscience and good spirit about him (Thank you, Sharon!) that provides balance to this family. I would like to see the core families shored up not torn down… and yes, I am hating the Jack paternity plot. Really?

So glad to hear you have given a contract, love watching you. Hope blessings come your way.

Yes! Hadnt seen him on screen in a week or so and then read that Jordi from days was cast and i was scared he was a recast Arturo. Glad the original is staying to continue the Abby romance and to portray a working class character in genoa city

Thinking Rey is Arturos older brother ,Hope his younger sister Lola comes too.

I think this is a fantastic decision. I really like Jason Canela, and am real happy with his portrayal of Arturo. This is going to be fantastic fun. Love seeing diversity come into play in daytime! Cannot wait to see where this is now going to get Arturo in terms of story and character development!

Kevin C

I agree with you Scott and I hope they bring some of his family members on the show…

I have a feeling that’s who Jordi Vilasuso is going to be playing!

Congrats Jason. Well deserved !!!

Seems like a good guy and I love to see someones hard work pay off but unless he is tied to a historical character OR they bring in his family, I dont care about Arturo! Remember, they made this same mistake with Luca. They could have brought in his family and his father and Victor could have went toe to toe!

Bart

Bland and boring – then again, in these PC times, we have to add ‘color’ to the GC canvas, don’t we…????

Amen Bart. Lets add TALENT!

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Lieu Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
