Missing Daytime Emmy winner Jeff Branson from his roles as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless or Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light?

Well, tomorrow night, Branson is co-starring in a new Lifetime movie entitled Zoe Gone which airs at 8PMEST on Lifetime!

According to CBS Soaps In Depth, who spoke with the talented Branson,”It ‘s about Jennifer, a 16-year-old girl who has a baby (Zoe) with the support of her boyfriend, but the pressure is too much for him and he runs away. Her mother is a divorcée who’s got a boyfriend, which is where I come in.  He’s the guy who wanted the woman, but not necessarily the child, but took on the role of helping to raise her anyway. But when his gal becomes a grandmother, that wasn’t in his plan. There are some moments of him not understanding and lashing out a bit.”

Later Baby Zoe goes missing! “That kicks in the young lady’s maternal instincts,” Branson relates. “Then the storyline becomes about finding the baby and Jennifer proving to herself the mother that she can be.”

There is more on the horizon for Branson with upcoming roles in Perception and NCIS, but the question remains, will Y&R ever bring back Jeff to Genoa City?  He might make a good on-screen romantic partner for Cady McClain’s upcoming recast of Kelly!  Thoughts?  Comment below!

Whew! That was a close one. For a moment there I was scared I was going to read that Ronan was coming back to Genoa City to help Jack grieve over Ol’ Red.

And the tremendous love between she and Jack. Yawn.

Ronan would be great if they let Amber or Drucilla come back. All three need to come back

Id love for Ronan to come back and have a relationship with New Kelly or Hilary. I never like him with that Phyllis. He was a great . Thanks for the article and news on the show he will be in. I think Chloe was excellent with Chance or Ronan also. To bad she is leaving she is a sweet and sad for her she lost Dee Dee.

Love the actor but his character on Y&R was badly handled– so unless they can define the character better, give him a solid story with some legs Ronan is better off canvas than on. I could see them bringing him back for a short stint as a means to usher Chloe off the show. She could run off with him, leaving Kevin and all her sad memories behind. But I highly doubt either a long or short stint is in the cards. I think Ronan and his family, Nina and Chance are a thing of the past, or until new… Read more »

Mary, I agree w/everything you wrote regarding Nina and her sons. Also I think Cady could have replaced Phyllis but replacing Kelly tells me she’s taking that status Phyllis had. Cady is such a winning actress.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
