The Young and the Restless made a very safe casting move, following Donny Boaz (Chance) testing positive for the coronavirus.

Boaz revealed the news via his Instagram stating: “I have a little news to share.  A few weeks ago, I tested positive for COVID 19. Thankfully, I did not have any symptoms. In following guidelines, I quarantined at home so you may not see me on Y&R for a bit. I’m happy to say I’ve returned to work and will be back on the air very soon. Thank you for your continued support.”

Enter Justin Gaston! The actor is married to Y&R actress, Melissa Ordway (Abby) who is involved in a romantic storyline with Boaz’s Chance.

Gaston, who previously appeared on Days of our Lives as the original Ben Weston stepped in for Boaz while he was self-quarantining and will be seen on the top-rated CBS daytime drama.  Look for Justin be on-screen as Chance beginning next week on the November 23rd episode.

So I am sure that the new Chance and Abby will be having love scenes since they are married in real life, only to have to go back to social distancing once the original returns. Why can’t they just have frequent testing so they can shoot love scenes and be more intimate?

Yes Richard, why can’t the state of California use more tests that are in short supply on tv stars so you can watch them make out?

Not going to lie, this is VERY exciting to me. I like Donny Boaz’s work as Chance Chancellor, however, I have always liked Justin Gaston’s acting, as well. Though, would have loved to have seen Mark Lawson (Dustin, General Hospital) cast in the role, as well, especially if Emme Rylan’s exit from GH turns out to be true.

Meh. Emme may be leaving GH, but I highly doubt Y&R wants her back. I think they’re very happy with Melissa’s portrayal of Abby. I certainly like Melissa much better than Emme!
I’ve never likes Emme as Lulu either. No one can beat JMB as Lulu!!
Not sure what the rumor is about Emme leaving GH, but I’d be surprised if that happens.

0ooohhh Justin Gaston is hot-
I would take him home with me.
Lookers like him shouldn’t be married
they should spread joy among women 🙂

Y&R peoples are 6 feet apart- looks weird.
Not so with GH .. it’s way more real.

No offense to the current Chance, but I would take Justin on a perm basis
The current Chance plays more like a cowboy then a Chancellor
And maybe having Melissa Ordways real life husband would ignite more spark and the show could actually film love scenes like Devon and Elena( together also in real life)
Justin seems more suited for the role in anycase seeing his previous work
Also Melissa finally shone in her scenes in the hospital room ,Its taken her forever but shes finally showing chops.

I didn’t like Justin on Days. I’m hoping I’ll like him better on Y&R. So is Justin going to film the wedding scenes?

Justin is absolutely adorable, look at that hair and eyebrows, etc.but I don’t much remember him as Ben Weston. Was he playing the part when he used to come into Sonny’s coffee house and the new bar later?

Um…can he stay? Danny Boaz always looked way too different from the original Chance for my liking.

Sporadic longtime viewer. Was just beginning to settle in with Boaz to be confused when turning on my recording this evening. Not to be condescending to any other actors, but he stood out from the usual. I also found a certain chemistry between that Chance and Abby. Apologies to her “real husband.” Haven’t watched the program yet, but was so surprised had to see what happened. Should have guessed. Hope all stay or get well.

PS: Agree, Abby has been “Knocking it out of the ballfield.”

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
