He is a good guy and I already knew from his work on TV he wasnt coming back to Y&R and now this. He could take over the MI role Tom Cruise made so popular. His possibilities are endless. Now somebody grow some balls and bring Muhney back and if Braeden doesnt like it, tough shit!

Hey Timmm, You look at J.H. and see exactly what I see. If you watch (trailer Ghost Protocol) he could easily be Jeremy Renner. Take a look at Tom C. Jeremy R & the girl sitting in the plain trying to decide what move to make.I can so easily see J.H. in there and if you look at Rogue Nation you could easily take J.Renner out and put J.T. in and I think he’d make a better Brent. He’s also very smart. He knows he needs to get into night-time shows for producers to see him. This guy was made for the big screen and he’s on his way.

Really, Nikki. If you’re going to recast the movie, put Justin in the lead role. Jeremy Renner is, in my opinion, the sexiest man in movies, an opinion shared by his AMERICAN HUSTLE costar Elisabeth Rohm and by the legendary Rita Moreno. I think his coming into the MI series improved them greatly. But I could easily see Justin Hartley replacing Cruise. He’s starting to look tired.

Seems Mr. Hartley is not coming to back to his Adam role on Y&R anytime soon. I wonder if Adam needs to return. After a decade of outlandish plots and nearly impossible to believe contrivances, I could be satisfied this Newman son remains dead. That is probably not the case, but still, there are many stories to tell with Newman’s other three children and his grandchildren.

I agree with you UNTIL Victor either dies or Eric retires. Adam was and could be a strong central Newman to take over the family lead.

Eric Braden had nothing to do with mm’s departure, that was all him and his roaming hands, and if it wasn’t, then he should have sued, but he didn’t.

A: Read Eric’s book!

B: CBS never released a statement over MM’s departure.

*You cannot make a statement UNLESS you were there!

I never said CBS released a statement,

A: EB was the one who said he had nothing to do with MM’s departure, repeatedly.

B: Actress playing Summer was the one who made the accusations, if they were untrue, MM should have sued her, he didn’t.

C: I know that if someone told a story like that about me and it wasn’t true, we’d be in court.

D: You weren’t there either.

Justin Hartley was destined for the big screen..
There is so much ahead for Justin, it has just begun for him..

I guess we’re all suppose to act surprised at this but I’m not. I said a long time ago this guy is going places and this is just the beginning for him. I never saw him in Passion but the first time I saw him in Y & R I could see him in movies with Tom Cruise. Whatever emotion he has to play he shows it on his face so well you almost believe its true. I love “This is us” Again I think he takes it away. I believe whatever role he’s given, he’ll run with it and make it his own. I’m so very happy for him.

If only JH could suddenly have a twin brother that his mother didn’t know she had, then he could have his movie career and we could have Adam back. lol

I thought he would end up in one of the many super hero or sci fi franchises– but I suppose Bad Moms Christmas is a start– and probably fits in with his shooting schedule for TIU– this movie role won’t land him an Oscar– but it gets him into the game if that is direction he wants to go with his career– but noticing more and more “movie stars” doing cable television these days, proving in the end a paying gig is better than no gig at all.

Hartley actually played Aquaman in a pilot for DC comics and was Green Arrow on the CW show Smallville at one point if memory serves me correctly. He also fits the Aquaman comic book character better than Jason Momoa. It would surprise me if he didn’t land a major superhero role because we know he’s a DC fan and they could use his help! I’m still not convinced he won’t return to Genoa City, Y&R has not been shy about showing his picture the past few weeks.

I always felt that the small screen would lead to bigger things for him. Loved him as the Green Arrow on Smallville, he was sooooooooooooo good!

I knew this was going to happen for him. Very happy for what he’s been given!!!

I’m surprised there’s a sequel.

Happy for him, but Justin can do so much better!
Bad Moms was a horrible movie and I can only imagine the sequel being even worse.

This is a movie that will probably go straight to DVD ok get over yourselves

He should not sink to a trash movie like this. I guess it’s a foot in the door.

He’s much better than being is a second-rate comedy sequel like this. I hope it does well, but Hartley is slumming it by taking this role, IMO. I hope he gets better film opportunities in the near future. He definitely should be on both Marvel & DC’s radar for an action picture, with a lot of shirtless screen time.

Know nothing about the movie. He always had a certain “something” which can ride out a stumble or two. For me, his cadence was not properly balanced in the first months of the R & Y. Now he needs to fall into an intellectual mystery type romance; mentally secure, but discretely delightful. He can play more much more than “eye candy”.

I will watch it if it does come out on Dvd,looking at Justins hot body oh boy what can I say…


Kathie Lee Gifford Reacts to ‘The Bachelor’ Joey Graziadei Having ‘No Idea’ Who She Is On ‘Live with Kelly and Mark’

Let’s set the stage! Kathie Lee Gifford was previously mentioned by Today Show’s Hoda Kotb and Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos as someone who would make a great lead for the upcoming dating-reality series competition, The Golden Bachelorette.

Then came the Wednesday February 28th episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, when the current ‘Bachelor’ leading man, Joey Graziadei was the guest.

During his interview, Kelly and Mark asked Graziadei what his thoughts were on Gifford becoming the first-ever ‘Golden Bachelorette’.

Graziadei’s response was: “I will be honest… I have no idea who Kathie Lee Gifford is.” That prompted some boos and some laughs from the in-studio audience. Joey added, ‘I’m only 28! I’m sorry!”

In a response to a post on X featuring the faux-pas, Gifford reacted by saying: “I don’t expect him to know me. I’ve got shoes that are older than this kid is!”

Gifford received the Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019. She has also been in the chair occupied by Ripa on ‘Live’. From 1985 to 2000, Kathie Lee and Regis Philbin were the co-hosts of  the morning talk show. She then went on to co-host the fourth hour of Today in 2008 and continued till 2019.

When E! News asked Kotb about Gifford potentially getting the nod as the “Golden Bachelorette”, she shared, “By the way, she would be a 10 plus, and she’d get her choice of all the men, and you know how she is all flirty and cute.”

So, what do you think about Joey not knowing who Kathie Lee is? Could it possibly be that ABC would cast Gifford as the ‘Golden Bachelorette’? Comment below.

Brian Gaskill Previews Seth’s Next Move on The Young and the Restless: “It’s the Beginning of Everything”

Coming up on the Friday, March 1st episode of The Young and the Restless be on the lookout for what could send Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) into yet another spiral with her alcohol addiction.

As viewers have recently witnessed, Jordan (Colleen Zenk), in disguise with red wig, has become ‘fast’ friends with Seth as a drinking buddy at a local dive bar. She has been egging him on to become ‘friends’ with Nikki, but also cited to him, how Nikki disappeared on her when she needed help in her attempt to get sober (all fabricated, of course).

Seth was able to get Nikki to agree to meet him one day for coffee or for an outing, even though she knows that he is also struggling to get sober and was not going to be a good AA sponsor for her.  Now, the trap is set.

Taking to his account on X, Gaskill shared on Wednesday, “Look for me Friday I think on Young and the Restless (tomorrow in Canada) pay attention. It’s the beginning of everything…”

Gaskill returned to daytime television in early January in his new recurring role on Y&R. Soap fans previously knew of his work as Bobby Warner on All My Children, Rafe Kovich on Port Charles, Ozzy Marone on The Bold and the Beautiful and Dylan Lewis on Guiding Light.

So, what are you theories of what’s about to go down? Will Seth lure Nikki into a trap knowing or unknowingly? Will he become obsessed with her? Will Jordan sneak into the Newman Ranch, and terrorize Nikki? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

In the meantime for some clues of what’s next in Nikki’s battle with the bottle, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s recent interview with Melody Thomas Scott below.

Vivica A. Fox, Jonelle Allen and Sally Sussman Revisit ‘Generations’ Classic Catfight and If They Would Be Down for a Revival

As it is Black history month, you can’t help but a shed a light on the groundbreaking soap opera, Generations. It was almost 35-years ago that NBC took a gamble on a new soap opera with an African-American family at its epicenter.

Generations was created by renowned soap opera writer, Sally Sussman and premiered back on Monday, March 27, 1989. Ironically, the show was up against the top-rated daytime drama The Young and the Restless and for 13 months it landed in the bottom of the ratings, until NBC canceled it in January 1991.

One of the most memorable moments in the series short history was a knock-down drag-out catfight between the characters of Maya (Vivica A. Fox) and Doreen (Jonelle Allen), with the late Kristoff St. John (Adam Marshall) in the middle of it all.

Speaking with, Fox recalled, “We just didn’t want it to look fake, because there’s nothing worse when you can see the stunt double. As you can see, I kind of dig doing fight scenes.”

Allen offered up: “The lines were scripted. What we were doing while we were saying them – the earrings and all of that stuff — was not. I added the kicking off the shoes and the pulling up the train. The actors didn’t get hurt, but the cameraman could have, because when I kicked off my shoes, I kicked my shoe so far it almost hit the camera!”

Jonelle also remembered Kristoff almost getting injured in the scenes, recalling: “He almost got beaten up. We were so in it, and he’s trying to break us apart, but we were pumped. The fight itself was choreographed. Him walking in and breaking it up was not, so he could have gotten hurt. He just thought he’d come in and separate us, but we were still going at it.”

Sussman shared the scenes cultural impact: “It put the show in a different stratosphere. And I remember less than a year later, Y&R copied it. A lot of people copied it. All the subsequent (catfights) that have been forced upon people were not motivated. This one was so motivated, that even though Maya was the aggressor, you agreed with her. Doreen had it coming, but you can’t overstate how long (the tension) was built up between them.”

So, is it time for a Generations 2.0 ? Sussman believes it just might be, “Over the last number of years, several young writers – I’m talking very young, younger than 30 — who love soaps of all different stripes, have been reaching out to me about how much they love the show, because there are so many episodes on YouTube. They say how much they love the show, and that I must try and do a revival.”

Jonelle Allen says she would be down too, expressing: “Revisiting these people later, and then seeing all the babies that were born who would be adults now and seeing what’s up with their stories, would be exciting. And Sally’s a great storyteller.”

Vivica A. Fox summed it up best, “I would be totally game for a revival …. I’d love to see soap operas make a comeback.”

So, did you watch ‘Generations’ when it aired on NBC? Do you recall your reaction to the Maya and Doreen catfight? And with Peacock streaming Days of our Lives, would they consider a series order for a reboot of a series such as ‘Generations’ too? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. But first, check out that classic catfight!
