So many of us have missed John-Paul Lavoisier, who was extremely popular in the role of Rex Balsom on One Life to Live!  Now comes word that Lavoisier is the next soap all-star to garner a role in Crystal Chappell’s upcoming new web series, Beacon Hill!

John-Paul will play Eric Preston who is Claire’s son (Crystal Chappell) and Sara’s brother.  Eric’s easy smile hides a steely resolve and sharp ambition. His grandfather’s stroke may be just the excuse he’s been waiting for to make his move.

According to the series website, the premise of the story is: “When Senior Massachusetts Senator William Preston suffers a stroke, his rebellious granddaughter Sara is called home to Boston. Once there, Sara finds that her ailing grandfather has a new wife barely older than herself, that her mother Claire is still hiding in her room with her favorite bottle, and that her brother Eric is playing nursemaid in between board meetings.  Sara also discovers that her ex, State Representative Katherine Wesley, is being mentioned as a possible Senatorial candidate in a cat-and-mouse game controlled by Sara’s grandfather.  When former lovers Sara Preston and Katherine Wesley reconnect after six years apart, it seems unlikely that they’ll ever be able to put their past behind them. And with the political turmoil, family intrusions and the press interfering, it may be downright impossible.”

John-Paul joins the likes of already announced stars: Ricky Paull Goldin, Louise Sorel, Sarah Brown, and Melissa Archer!  Yes, Lavoisier will appear on the series with his One Life to Live on-screen sister!

So what do you think about the casting of John-Paul as Crystal’s son in the series? Excited to see him on screen again after missing him on One Life? Weigh-in!

With this cast and proposed story relationships, sounds like “Beacon Hill” will be successful and a hoot to follow! When will it begin to air?

.
Beacon Hill was considered to be an Americanized version of the British TV series, Upstairs Downstairs.
In 1975 it was a short lived soap on CBS ..
Beacon Hill debuted to monster ratings, the show dwindled and was cancelled after only 6 episodes, making it one of the most monumental flops in TV drama.
But most of the actors went on to bigger things anyway..

It sounds like a really good soap..
Being it will be on the internet I’m sure this time around I’m going to be fan !!!!

Very good question. I’m also interested in the Tainted Dreams online soap as well, that has an interesting cast, with several former OLTL actors. Hope to see more of them return to the online version on Hulu.

I hope he and (Farah Fath) stay away from OLTL. Rex and Gigi practically ate the show the last few years and I for one don’t miss their epic, death-defying, time traveling tru wuv forever.

Good for him! They’re getting together quite a good cast and the storyline sounds intriguing.

I don’t know – or really care – what sort of “range” JPL has an actor. What he definitely DOES have is a charm and likability that make watching him a treat.

And now that he’s not harnessed to that horrid Farah Fath, things can only be looking up for him.

was interested in watching this show, but now that I know Minshew is playing a gay character, not so much. Guess I won’t be watching. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with gays, I have relatives that are gay, but I just don’t see Minshew playing that type of role. Would rather see her back on AMC with Thorsten Kaye and playing Kendall.

You don’t see Alicia Minshew playing “a reporter in New York [who] reluctantly returns home”? You don’t think she has that kind of range? She was one of my faves on AMC and I can definitely see her playing a reporter. But that’s just me. Do you hate reporters?

It’s a pleasure to see my son, John-Paul, even if only on an online show.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
