They Need A Bad Guy So I Say He will Play A Bad Guy Girls Go Crazy For Bad Guys

Lee
Lee

I don’t care if he’s good or bad, I just like watching him!!! 🙂

Celia
Celia

Not this girl, Lynn……unless he’s hot !! LOL. I do not like this actor. Just being honest.
Is he related to Arturo? I do not trust Arturo….maybe they are a team? Bad guys in good guys ‘masks’? Ha!

k/kay
k/kay

I think he is a Adam recast probably wrong

Celia
Celia

I don’t know, Kay….he is too ethnic looking to be Adam. But, one never knows…

Sylvia
Sylvia

Adam went from dark hair to being a blonde, then back to black. Simply amazing. So stupid. LOL.

Momo
Momo

I don’t the actor either. 🙁

k/kay

Well he is indeed a handsome devil!

Fanny

Hi sweet Cee,
Completely agree… don’t like Arturo either
annoyed me from day one. Can’t believe Nicki had a fling w/ him yuck‼️

Celia
Celia

Hello, ma belle amie…
I didn’t mind Arturo at first….Now? I can’t shake this feeling he’s up to something nefarious and this new guy ( not my kind of a hot, sexy male, LOL) is here to help him with whatever Arturo has planned.
I CAN believe Nikki had a few rolls in the hay with him……Afterall, isn’t that her modus operandi?
Fanny, my lady; I have been watching this soap since I was three or four….didn’t understand much, but when I was old enough to ken what was going on, Nikki has always been prone to ‘stray’. I wouldn’t go as far as calling her ‘une fille dela nuit’ in her youth, but….marriage vows be damned. She even had sex with Cole, Victoria’s husband; if I’m not mistaken.
So, the question is….why would such a young, virile guy take Nikki to bed, when he could have anyone? He’s after something—moved straight to Abby at breakneck speed. LOL.

Fanny
Fanny

Ma Cherie Cee,
I’ve only been watching Y&R for 3 years this summer… still have a lot to catch-up on, having fun along the way. Faithfully watching GH for decades w/ the help of a FF button to filter out the nonsense, otherwise it’s been a decent RIDE full of greatness at times. Back in the DAY while following DOOL …during
Bo & Hope’s reign, my sister & I took
an over night “soap Cruise “ around Hudson island so we could meet Ari’s soap crush Drake H. We laughed until we cried & promised ourselves never to do a repeat performance of a tug boat tour to nowhere …unless it was on “Viking”.
Fun time memories… Hope U & your
family R having a lovely summer sweet Cee.

Celia
Celia

Chere Fanny,
WOW!! That does sound like you had the time of your life….and with your sister!! I have three sisters, my lady……aren’t they the best?? Especially my twin….you know it’s true what they say? Yes, we finish each other’s sentences. LOL.
Y&R has always been my favorite soap. Another World was a close second, with OLTL, AMC, and PASSIONS. The latter was a little ‘out there’, but so fun to watch….loved “Timmy”.
We are having a very busy summer. I have a big family and we take our vacations together, most of the time……all the children drive us a little batty when together; but I wouldn’t have it any other way….family is everything.
Thanks you for asking, belle madame….I wish you the same.
A bientot.

Karen
Karen

I agree don’t like Arturo at all, I cringe when him and Abby kiss.
This new guy is very handsome. Who could he possibly be for. To old for Summer.

Elite Advisors
Elite Advisors

There is a shortage of men … Victoria, Sharon, Abby, and now Summer all need something fun in their lives…he would have made a great GH Dante!!

Celia
Celia

Dante would make much more sense, considering Sonny’s Hispanic heritage, Elite Advisors.

I just want someone for Sharon that will live her warts and all everybody deserves that ! Phyllis had done far worse things then Djaron but yet Nick forgives her so I hope she moves on

Celia
Celia

I love Sharon, Kay….always pulled for her and Nick.
Phyllis? Hmmmm…..had we been talking about Stafford, I would give you a different response because I am biased when it comes to her….I admit it.
But PhakePhyllis ain’t doing it right!!!!
She and Nick will hit the sheets, AGAIN…..sooo typical….over and over….
Maybe, Jordi will hook up with Sharon. She does deserve happiness….but, do it with aplomb….not rush into it.
Poor Sharon is destined to be standing under a perpetual dark cloud like Eeyore ( from Winnie the Pooh), LOL.
As Eeyore is wont to say, “Most likely lose it again, anyway”.

Harry
Harry

Victoria could use a love interes. I don’t think there’s a shortage of young men. You have Kyle and Ravi (whom you never see). I keep thinking Ravi and Summer would make a great pair–he could ground her, make her more of a visionary and less materialistic and shallow.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

So sorry, but Jordi, is way much more man, than Lulu could ever handle.

Soaphound
Soaphound

I didn’t care for him on GL but sometimes a new character can change my mind. I just hope it’s not another man/boy toy in need of a razor who finds his way into Nikki’s clutches.

Celia
Celia

Ain’t that the truth, Soaphound.

Dee

Hopefully a bad guy. Loved him on Guiding Light.

Lew S.

I’m thinking he is for Victoria.

SZima

Bad guy with a heart of gold!
Please NOT an evil guy! Vic has that role covered.

Iakovos

I like this actor and hope Y&R has developed a strong character with a long-term story line so it is not a fly-by-night extended cameo appearance. Genoa City needs someone a good bad boy with sex appeal.

Ariel Coger

Not watching the young in the no more

GramS
GramS

I really like this actor. I think he could easily be Arturo’s older brother. I do not understand why some keep saying Arturo is suspicious. He hasn’t done anything to warrant it. So what if he had a sex thing going with Nikki, they are both consenting adults.

David J Schroeder

Bravo, Jordi!

Michael Teale

The only beef that I have with this casting is that YR has a no raise policy. They need to get their budget under control first.

Lynn
Lynn

I am thinking that perhaps he will play Adam, it says he is introduced as a mysterious stranger named Ray, I’m thinking Adam when ANOTHER new face due to the explosion. We need Adam to come back, the show needs the multi-dementional fabulous Adam! I held out hope for Michael Muhney, but it’s never gonna happen, and at this point they need to fill the void.

ramon carter
ramon carter

thats my thought adam with a new face who cares id he is ethic looking he could be adam and hook up with sharon

Frances Gruno
Frances Gruno

Now this is exciting. He would have made a great Adam Newman since it doesn’t look like the writers want to give M.M, (Michael Muhney) back to us fans.

Momo
Momo

No, he wouldn’t. Not exciting either.

Celia
Celia

I agree, Momo. Jordi was on DOOL, not too long ago.
You know how we either take to an actor or not? Well, something about him did not mesh with me. Unreasonable of me? Perhaps.
I will give him a chance. As Soaphound said, sometimes a new role shines a different light upon the ‘subject’, LOL.

Alan
Alan

I think Jordi will play a character with no established back story or pre-planned arc who floats through Genoa City looking for a storyline like the majority of the cast. When a show wastes the talents of Eileen Davidson for the better part of the last year while bringing on boring new characters like Arturo and Shauna it’s time for a new creative team…

Momo
Momo

Eileen didn’t have a storyline. Don’t know how she won an Emmy. Not saying she’s not talented, because she is.

I with Shauna would go too. Maybe now that Hilary is gone, she will. Arturo hasn’t really meshed either.

We have great actors already on the show who need story. Give them a story before adding more characters who will contribute nothing.

k/kay
k/kay

All the soaps are doing that just how it goes

Celia
Celia

I had not read this comment of yours, yet, Momo….weird how we both used the word ‘mesh’…..great minds….LOL.
If Shauna wouldn’t try so hard, she’d be much more effective ( not that I’m an expert), but when she scrunches up her face, constantly, it becomes annoying.
It’s like that is the only expression she has mastered….frozen in place. Was she brought as THE catalyst to expefite Hilary’s demise? Too bad!! What an awful ending for one of the best on daytime…..or primetime, if she wanted ….

Momo
Momo

🙂

I will miss Hilary/Mishael. Haven’t always liked Hilary, but she grew on me. Wonder what they’ll do with the GC Buzz.

The whole brother’s in rehab storyline doesn’t ring true. That’s part of my issue with Shauna, and then I think she’s more annoying than anything. And Hilary and Devon gave her way too much freedom. Going away for the weekend and letting her stay in the penthouse alone. Strange.

Celia
Celia

Shauna is fifteen? Knows too much, if you ask me. I wasn’t even allowed to date at that age…..and when I finally was, a year later, my sister and I HAD to double date. Never alone.
Yes, the brother thing is sort of lame. But, you know, Momo….some parents truly are very lax with their teen kids in real life.
But, I will bite my tongue. I don’t want to jinx myself….my children are nine ( in two and a half weeks) and four respectively. We try our best to keep things on an even keel….and, they do have some priviliges taken away when necessary.

James R. Poissant

I’m glad to see him get this. i felt he didn’t get what he should have at DAYS. Looking forward to catching him on Y&R.

Koosje
Koosje

You don’t need another evil guy ….Abby needs someone

Momo

Not happy with this. I was so glad when he left Days. I don’t want him on another of my soaps.

Janice

Just hope he doesn’t end up with Sharon, Nikki or Victoria…..so over those affairs!

k/kay

After today’s show please be for Sharon and Sharon kick that bastard out of your house that pompous horney ass! Nobody treats a person you love like this I hate what they have done with him but hey the actor got wanted he wanted! Newsflash Case has been carry your no talent behind for years

dmr

I am laughing so hard! I watched the show today while at lunch. We knew that’s where they were headed…the kitchen counter! haha

k/kay
k/kay

Disgusting of course she would do it anywhere I hate her character and I loathe nick two seconds and he has no regard for Sharon I am so very sorry I ever supported this couple ! Nick would screw a snake if it stood still long enough as bad as I hate Victor I hope he takes that kid to task he is not a man he is a spoiled child ! Everything he has Daddy gave him

Celia
Celia

Oh, Kay….even when upset, you are too funny. A snake? How? Where?
But, yes….you are absolutely right. I cannot believe it!! I regret supporting the couple, as well.
It seems Nick can’t keep it in his pants….same fallen hero? How many times can he do that?
This development came out of nowhere….why is it with these writers? On all soaps? Can you imagine each time we have a disagreement with our mate, we go out and do it with someone else? What is that all about?
Nick is not a man….no true man would do that. Spoiled brat, indeed!!
I hope what he and Flaky PhakePhyllis are proud of themselves.
Will they explain it away as usual?

Celia
Celia

I missed it, dmr….I was en route for seven hours…..It was not recorded either. I have to go to my grandmother’s to watch it. I forgot to set my DVR.
Where did it happen? Summer’s penthouse? LOL.
I hope PhakePhyllis break an arm and a leg. Ha!

k/kay
k/kay

Hey c I can’t ever really support Sharon and Nick I wanted to but the writers when they lost Cassie losing a child and then screw on your wife when she needs you the most! That’s why I could never back Phyllis and Nick even when Stafford was in the role ! Stafford was at her best in the early nineties when Bill Bell was writing for the character well all of the characters were Paul had wonderful stories very sad ask your grandmother it was once a wonderful show you wanted to watch every day he created characters and you cared about them
Not silly plots

k/kay
k/kay

When Bill Bell passed away the heart of the show died too Kay Alden and Sally were trying to bring it back but Sony threw them away makes you wonder if they want the show to die also

Kevin C
Kevin C

So totally agree 100% k/kay but I think the heart of the show died when they let Kay Alden and a lot of the behind the scenes staff go in 2006…I had high hopes with Sally and Kay but like you said, SONY/CBS blew it and it’s disgusting that they let this classic daytime drama that Bill Bell created go the direction it has…

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Any kind of guy is OK with me.I especially liked him years ago on GL, AMC, and more recently DOOL, but not as much as the other two. I was thinking he might be related to Arturo.

Jeffrey Moree

Love his work!

Jordi Vilasuso’s character will be entangled in Black Horse and with Arturo,,
Nick will need all the help he can get because Victor will chew Nick up and spit him out.
Victor will regain his throne.

Andi

Jordi is a very good actor. I watched him on Guiding Light and am sure he’ll do a great job (whatever the role) on Y & R. Give him a chance to settle in. He won’t disappoint fans.

I am glad they are bringing Jordi to Y & R. I had hoped he would return to Days of our Lives.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
