Joshua Morrow Chats On His Latest Film GOLDEN SHOES And Y&R Drama With Nick & Sage, Adam, and Baby Boy Newman!

The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) while in the middle of major Newman drama on the CBS daytime drama series, can also be seen in a new movie which debuted this week on DVD and On DemandGolden Shoes.  The film from Anchor Bay Entertainment is a feel good story soccer tale which truly illustrates, “The greatest goal is believing!”

In Golden Shoes, Morrow plays a young father missing in action in the war in Afghanistan who longs to be reunited with his family.  His young son Christian played by Christian Koza aspires to be a world class soccer player, but suffers intense bullying at school.  When things get even bleaker, he turns to some very special shoes that help reunite his family and an entire nation!

Meanwhile on Y&R, Nick just learned the shocking truth that Gabriel Bingham is his brother Adam Newman (Justin Hartley) back-from-the-dead! And that the woman he loves, and the mother of “his” child, knew about it for over a year, and said nothing!  Now with bombshells dropping all around him, and determined to help his father Victor (Eric Braeden) stave off the effects of the Paragon Project virus unleashed to destroy the family empire, Nick is back in action in the corporate world.  But what will he do, if and when he finds out his new little boy who is fighting for his life is actually not his bio-child, but his deceitful brother, Adam’s?

On-Air On-Soaps chatted with Joshua to get some insight into what to look for in his new film, and his thoughts on the hot plots airing this week on Y&R!

In Golden Shoes you play George Larou who is deployed to Afghanistan, and his eight-year-old son tries to cope with his father being away, and his mother is being hospitalized.  The young boy turns to playing soccer to cope, something he has dreamed about doing like his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo!  

Courtesy/AnchorBayEntertainment

JOSHUA:  Yes, but when my character goes to Afghanistan, Christian is not doing great.  He is struggling, and he is lonely, and trying to figure out his way.  Then he finds these golden shoes that essentially make him amazing in soccer, but essentially the soccer was in him the whole time.

And throughout Golden Shoes is George trying to get home to his family and his son who misses him so badly?

JOSHUA:  My character is deployed and pinned in, and is pinned down in this bunker and trying to find my way out of it   The whole time George just wants to get back to his family, and essentially, I am able to get out of there and get home.

Eric Roberts is also featured in this film.  This is the second opportunity you have had to work with him, since Eric did appear on Y&R for awhile!

JOSHUA:  Yes, what a great guy.  I got the opportunity to do some courtroom scenes when he was on Y&R playing Vance, and at that time he had never done a soap in a very long very time (Roberts was on Another World early in his career).  I did not have to give him any tips, of course. (Laughs)  Eric is a wily veteran, and was so good.  When we were working on the movie it was cool to reminisce with him about his time at Y&R.  I loved working with him.  I think we had a really strong cast in this movie!

The film has a very strong cast in it including: Vivica A. Fox, John Wesley Shipp, John Rys Davies, Dina Mayer, and even Montel Williams!  What was it like to go off and film this, because we know you love your day job in Genoa City?

Courtesy/AnchorBayEntertainment

JOSHUA:  I enjoyed doing it, and any chance I get to go off and do something like that it’s really fun.  I think we made this movie closer to three years ago, but now it’s finally out, and it’s a good little kid’s movie. My sons enjoyed it.  It’s about sports, and it has a good message to it about dreaming and never giving up.  I actually took my sons with me when I filmed the movie, and they got to play extras as soccer players in it.  They were really excited to be a part of this movie and my dad came as well.  It was actually a great week.  We shot it in Michigan and the weather was amazing.   It was a really cool experience to share with my sons and my dad.

I have to say this week’s episodes of Y&R which featured the Adam Reveal have been absolutely phenomenal.  What did you think about how it all unfolded?

Courtesy/CBS

JOSHUA:  It’s been great, and they have been hanging on to that story for awhile, and Justin Hartley has been doing such an amazing job as Adam.  It just showed the ability of our cast and it was really, really a great story to tell.  I thought they did it perfectly.  I was very proud of the performances.

I also thought the scene between Nick and Sage (Kelly Sullivan), when Victoria (Amelia Heinle) pulls the rug out from under Sage, was great.  Sage basically admits her part in the Adam/Gabriel Bingham deception, and then when Nick doubts that the baby is his, she says, basically whatever the case, she has having a Newman baby.  Does Nick truly believe it is his biological child?

JOSHUA:   I don’t know, but I think due to the fact that she has been so dishonest with him, there is a question.  But I do believe in Nick’s heart, he thinks the baby is his.  Sage says to him, “You know whose baby this is.”   It was such a beautiful line and well-delivered by Kelly.  I don’t think Nick fully believes it’s not his.

So does this mean … Nick will be a doofus again? (Laughs)

JOSHUA:  Well, it’s his comfort zone! (Laughs)

Courtesy/CBS

Another great moment came in a scene between you and Eric Braeden (Victor) when Victor comes to the Underground for a drink post the Adam reveal, and the two of them commiserate as they clink glasses.  Nick then says something along the lines of: “We’re Newmans.  Adam doesn’t deserve the name.”   What is it like working with Eric in those scenes which illustrates the dynamic of their father and son?

JOSHUA:  I love that the show tells the story about Nick wanting to be his own man, and to be away from his father and live his life on his own terms. However, I think Y&R is at its best when it shows the Newmans rallying around each other, and closing the ranks, and realizing that they are big targets. People are always out to get them.  Nick is always looking for his dad’s approval despite what he feels and projects to everyone.  When those two come together, it’s just great television.  I thought the scenes were perfectly written, especially when they show the true father/son relationship.

It’s a great relationship, because when the chips are down, these Newman men are there for each other! 

JOSHUA:  That’s the way it is always is.  They are two different dudes, and Nick tries to carve his own way, but I love when they band together … and have to fight together.

Courtesy/CBS

Now Sage had the baby, Adam delivered it, and it’s a boy!  Nick is always finding himself embroiled in a paternity pickle! (Laughs)

JOSHUA:  His kids are always in peril.  I have always said the most unsafe job in daytime is to be one of my children! (Laughs)  You just never know what’s going to happen to you, but you will see.  Fans should continue to check it out, it is a great story.  I think they outline it perfectly for the viewers.  I can promise you it’s going to be really, really great television for the next month.  We are shooting stuff now that will knock your socks off!

Will Adam and Nick come to blows over Sage, the baby, and his duplicity at some point? 

JOSHUA:  We will see!  Looks like everyone in town has taken a couple of shots at Adam, and Nick truly despises his brother.  It is one of my most favorite relationships on the show.  So if that’s the way they want to go with it, I look forward to it.  It’s an interesting relationship, so I look forward to seeing where they go from here.

Courtesy/CBS

Kelly Sullivan got to step up to the plate this week, and had some meaty material to play.  Her performance was spot on!  What can you say about working with Kelly?

JOSHUA:  Kelly is phenomenal.  I absolutely love working with her.  She has a great sense of humor and attitude about being on this job.  She’s extremely professional, but she doesn’t take herself too seriously.  She’s a great, great woman and an awesome actress. She is doing stuff in the next couple of weeks that has not aired yet that is just insane.  So, the viewers are going to get quite a healthy dose of Kelly Sullivan.  I guarantee they will enjoy it!

Will you be checking out Joshua’s new famiuly film, Golden Shoes with its inspirational message? What do you think about the drama this week on Y&R between Nick and Sage, and Nick and Adam?  What do you think about the latest paternity pickle with the newest Newman boy?  Share your thoughts below, but first check out the official trailer to Golden Shoes!

Will definitely check Golden Shoes. But not feelin Nage or the baby. Kelly may be cool but Y&or took away Phick, Avery & Sharon. Left us with a rehash of Phick ( Back door Paragon computer issue) ; baby born in the park by Adam ( Remember Summer’s birth?). The writers continue to show favor to JP’s picks. Just tired of it!!! Let Sage either go away or go with someone else. Insulting! And by the way Sage may love Nick- but don’t see Nick lovin her. She’s just the baby mama.

Yeah, Saundra, I can certainly see what you’re saying. But, Nick is no saint. I have developed such a dislike for him versus the crush I used to have on him as a tween and beyond. He has that Newman attitude of lording it over people, just like his father and sister. He acts first and thinks later. And, his words can kill.

Poor Nick! Methinks that Sharon’s and Patty’s doctor is a past lover of Nick’s. She has had plastic surgery and is on the warpath, causing havoc for Nick and all his past lovers and wives. Add Sage to that list. If the writers DARE for this nutso doctor near Christian, that would be too much to bear. I hope ‘they’ stop with Le Marquis de Sade experiments.

CeeCee, ALL men act first and think later! Here is my theory. Sharon’s doctor’s real name is Sandra Allen. She broke her neck at a pool party at the Newman Ranch! After dozens of surgeries she was able to walk again. Nick was unable to track her down. Victor paid all her hospital bills and paid her family off! She is back and looking to get revenge on Nick ANY way she can!

@Timmm.
Yes!!!!! Of course!!!’. It must be she. I figured it was a woman from Nick’s past gone crazy on revenge, due to a broken heart. A woman scorned is a dangerous woman, indeed!! Now, you have solved the mystery. Eurika. You make the most sense, Timmm. Great call.

Every soap opera JFP goes to she starts bringing on her friends that’s why we call them FOJ’s ! TB/Lauren has been with this show since forever still looks like a million bucks and is a great actress when she is given material but yet no story and we bring another character on Jensen Buchanan next month . Why? Because she is a FOJ!

I agree Eileen. Nick is not my favorite Y&R character but JM is my favorite cast member on the show. He’s also a laid back, funny guy and a big time sports fan too. Looks like he’d be a blast to be friends with which is what I like about him.

I feel bad for JM, He keeps on trying to lift up Kelly Sullivan and her character in hopes that we will like her, but I do not care how professional she is or isn’t…Her character sucks, SICK is as dull as bricks. This newbie is sucking up the airtime because she is a favorite…Just move it on already!

There are many not in your ”we” that really like Kelly Sullivan, I am one..
Kelly is a very great actor!
Now that Kelly actually has a story and the opportunity to bring forth her acting, she will indeed be phenomenal.
Wait for it 🙂

I’m with you, su. I love Ms Sullivan….her acting is up there with the best of them. People do tend to generalize. But it is Faith’s opinion and she has a voice….rightfully so.
Nonetheless, the way I see it? Kelly does not need ‘lifting up’. She can hold her own; certainly without Joshua to make her look good. I’m sure he’s a great guy ( gorgeous to boot), but his Newman name is starting to raise its ugly head. His words to her were pungent.

They could change that though. It’s not KS’s fault. Did you watch her on GH? She can do anything! They are just writing her kind if boring, which makes me wonder if they’re going to kill her off or something. I hope not. She is fantastic and deserves to have something awesome to sink her teeth into.

Actually it would have been kind of nice to have seen them kill her off in childbirth and have Nick have a healthy baby boy instead of this crap. At least it would have been something new.

Your right, this character is wrong, the actress is phenomenal! Her Connie/ Kate character on GH was fantastic. She should have won an Emmy for her dual role and was tipped off! On Y&R, she is disposable.

Sage is boring to me, Eileen and a host of other people too. You cannot argue against our reaction and say it’s not so. If the character is not salivating over Nicholas she is rabidly hysterical about losing him. The other day the mother-in-law from hell was all over Sage with hugs, kisses and unconditional love–things which she never once gave Sharon. Why? I think Nikki recognizes herself in Sage for as horrid and emotionally abusive as Nicholas can be, Sage always bows down and begs like a passive and obedient little dog. See, Page is as much of a… Read more »

Harry, I dont understand why u are ALWAYS so sarcastic and cutting to me. Why is it so hard for u to grasp the concept of someone knowing these actors on a personal level? With over 20 years of events and PA’s, why wouldnt a person have friendships? I guess the next time Im with one of them at dinner, Ill take a selfie with them, and u can send me ur email and Ill post it to you. I dont treat U that way.

That’s your opinion and you are entitled to it. I am not a major fan of her acting or character (Kelly Sullivan). However, I believe that she would be a wonder addition to Saturday Night Live. So to all 12 of her defenders I mean fans defend away. Attacking me for not being part of her 12 member fan base is not going to move me whatsoever!

Ur funny, Faith, hate on her all u want but Kelly certainly has a bigger fan base than 12, if u dont like her, fine. Arguing with u is like talking to a wall, anyway.

You do the same thing, Eileen. You can be very sarcastic to me. The thing is, I bite back. So, if you do not want sarcasm directed your way, then you should not bandy it around either.

Good for you, Faith. I appreciate your post. I keep saying this. We agree or disagree with each other’s opinions. It is an opinion…it doesn’t mean any of us is right or wrong.

All is well. Peace.

I seriously hope they don’t kill the baby or have it be Adam’s. Even my husband who tries really hard to not be around when I’m watching y&r walked in today, saw the baby in the incubator and said “Man, Nick has some baaad luck. Nothing ever goes right for that dude.” then walked out.

Oh, please,….no more dead babies. I wasn’t even able to watch the last part in NICU. Too close for comfort. And, yeah, Ash, it would be a change, and certainly a novel idea if, for once, a healthy baby were born more often on these shows. Why does there have to always be some kind of trauma at every childbirth?

I know EXACTLY what you mean! Plus I’m 7.5 months pregnant, so I was sitting there saying “Hold on baby boy! I don’t want to see you in that situation. Sniffffle!” I’m starting to miss the humor our show used to have. Remember the funny scenes with Mrs. C and Jill? They try to do it with Jill and Esther but Jill just picks on Esther. And Billy used to be funny but isn’t super funny anymore. Anyway, I’m ok with baby drama to an extent, like Summer being born in an elevator, but seeing a tiny baby fighting for… Read more »

You probably cry over every little thing, as pregnancy will do that. It’s getting close. LOL. A Christmas baby!! My six-year old is a Christmas baby….what a coincidence! Lol.

I am happy for Josh and agree with his TV Dad, Eric Braeden that he could have easily landed a starring in a TV sitcom. I am afraid I agree with the others pertaining to Kelly Sullivan. Sage has no personality–if she is not all hysterical about landing Nick she is gloating with her pregnancy glow. Either way she is insufferable and I find myself fast forwarding through any scenes in which she is featured. My hope is that Baby Christian Andrew Newman lives while his mother passes on. Sage is a colossal flop. The odd thing is I liked… Read more »

I think KS was great on GH but this character is not good. KS is doing the best she can with this rotten writing but it is making her have to OVERACT and I think that is why Sage is rubbing folks the wrong way. I wish that hadn’t had Nick marry her for a change. In this day and age folks don’t have to get married with a baby on the way. He barely KNOWS her. I mean at least with Sharon and Phyllis he knew them BEFORE he married them. I hope that Sage leaves Genoa City by… Read more »

Y&R has been so good lately, I can’t wait to see what November Sweeps may bring! The only storyline I can’t get into is the Winters family. That bore Darvon and creepy Neil is just awful. As for Kelly Sullivan as Sage I agree with the other posters that she is just not catching on. I loved her as Connie on GH but Sage must go. When you’re hoping a character dies in childbirth, and the kid doesn’t make it either…the storyline is a huge flop and we should just pretend Sage and the baby never existed IMO.

I feel just the opposite. I really like Sage but I can’t stand Nick. I think J.M. may very well be a great guy but Nick makes me ill. He married Sharon out of school & ran around on her with her best friend a couple of times, when Cassie died and Sharon needed him he ran around with Phyllis. The last time he was with Sharon he was going to marry her and she couldn’t remember that she changed Summer’s paternity test. She even sen a doctor over it. He told her he loved her & being back there… Read more »

I used to be a huge fan of Bill Bell’s Y&R and the families he created, especially, the Newmans and the Abbotts. Now Bill Bell’s show has been reduced to prop driven storylines and Bill Bell’s characters are no longer recognizable. With Charles Pratt’s writing style, long term characters are fitted into storylines for the sake of moving his prop driven, shock and awe, plots. It is really obvious with each regime by now that they are more inclined to tell new stories with their new characters and want their own couples, too, as in the case of Nick and… Read more »

Am I biased maybe, but no other woman has been good enough in my eyes to replace Sharon with Nick. And for those who think Shick is boring its certainly not because of Sharon its Nicks uninteresting butt who is never interesting on his own!

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
