Kale Browne to The Young and the Restless to do Voice-Over Work!



Remember the recent online bruhaha over the Kale Browne sighting over at The Young and the Restless?  Fan fervor ignited that FOJ (Friends of Jill Farren Phelps) were all being hired, or brought over to the number one soap, while displacing other Genoa City favorites!

Well, according to Soap Opera Digest this weekend, Browne had been indeed hired for a role on Y&R, but it is not what you think! SOD reports:  “It turns out that Kale will play a radio DJ and his voice will be heard on the February 12th and 13th episodes. The actor previously did vocal work at GH, where Y&R’s Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps toiled before coming to Y&R.”

Browne is soap famous for his role as Michael Hudson on Another World and Sam Rappaport on One Life to Live.

So what do you think about Browne playing a deejay and not having an on-air character? Are you relieved he is not playing a new contract character? Do you want him on the show? Do you believe FOJ are running rampant in Genoa City?  Let us know!

This is interesting!

I just deleted 2 weeks worth of shows without taking a look I gave it a chance so I do not care one way or the other. Did not really see him beng put on contract she likes the young studs. Lol! The show for me has been a struggle since 2005 maybe some day someone on this board will tell me I am missing out on a super comeback but I am not going to hold my breath.

I thought for certain he was going to be a Tucker recast.

FOJ strikes again!

Most people if given the chance will want to work with people they know and like, so I don’t fault Jill for giving out new gigs to those people in her life. But if she is axing established characters so she can create new characters for her friends to play, then as a viewer I would not be pleased. If she had to hire someone to play the voice of a DJ anyway and wants to hire Kale that is okay by me, but if she was creating the part on purpose just so she could give her pal work, well that is just shoddy producing in my opinion.

I would like to see him on Y& R but not at the expense of tried and true well loved actors. Speaking of Another World, I have hoped for years to see Stephen Schnetzer join the cast. It would be great to have a “Cass” type character . He was quick witted, brilliant, funny and had an ease with other languages. Y&R would be richer for it.

I miss seeing Stephen on soaps also! I thought it a great treat to find him on an epi of Law and Order once in a while or to hear him doing a commercial voice over. He’s a good actor with a fabulously unique voice. I still can’t believe he hasn’t been on a soap for so long. Maybe he just doesn’t want to?

JFP is just not the right individual to helm daytime’s number one soap of almost a quarter century. Y&R needs people who love and understand and respect the history of this gem, much like what Cartini did/do for ONE LIFE TO LIVE and GH. I just don’t and can’t agree with pandering to certain demo groups while ignoring beloved characters and the loyal audience.

Goes to show how some people can get upset over something they do not know if even a fact or not LOL …

I personally have loved Kale Browne since “Another Word” days!!!

Bring back Sam Rappaport!

I like that idea…I loved Kale’s Sam Rappaport.
Next to Viki being on GH to kick Todd in the butt,ghostly visits to Todd from Sam would suit this fan just fine.

Here’s hoping Jill can tank this show and put GH on top again!

GH is better than Y&R any day of the week..
I am a 30yr fan of both GH and Y&R but GH is the best!!

LOL! How on earth can the boring boredom that is Genoa City have better ratings than GH?! I don’t understand at all.

I’m a long time fan of both shows,but I can’t remember the last time I watched a full episode of Y&R….I usually turn it off after a few minutes cause I’m bored.

where Y&R’s Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps toiled before coming to Y&R.”

You’re exactly right about that Michael. Its a mistake having Jill helm Y&R. It still feels like the MAB era for me. Nothing has changed. Nothing has progressed. Im still glad I have a worthy soap GH to watch.

He did voice over work on GH, too. O really loved him on AW & OLTL

I’m disappointed. I wanted him on as the new Lance Abrahms. 🙁

That would have been way cool- Kale as Lance– as a possible new love interest for Jill. Oh well- sometimes the story lines in our heads are better than the ones they show. So I guess we will have to just keep on dreamin’

Although Kale Browne was a fairly competent actor the last time I saw him on OLTL, I did NOT believe that he was so good that he was worthy of sucking up the lion’s share of air time – which is what he did as Sam Rappaport on OLTL. We called him Sam-I-Am-In-The-Middle-Of-Every-Story-Line. The Friends of Jill who have already arrived in Genoa City have proved beyond all doubt that they all belong to the SAME family! Although it MIGHT be possible that Kale Browne will ONLY be appearing as the voice of a Disc Jockey during Valentine Week, there is NO guarantee at this point that the DJ role is the ONLY role which Browne will take on Y&R. I have personally given up trying to figure out what is going on with the current batch of stories which Y&R is currently promoting. I find that most of the continuity on Y&R has becoe very choppy since JFP took over – and far too many of these kids whom JFP is promoting in center stage are really painfully incompetent. Last week, after it was discovered that Jamie had taken a serious tumble off of the roof, TIIC had a scene where Fen arrive in Jamie’s hospital room and, as Fen arrived, Jamie opened his eyes. Then – there was NO mention of what was happening next until almost a WEEK later! JFP is doing her usual hatchet job with the “bullying” storyline. And it appears that JFP is also doing her usual hatchet job with Sharon’s “bi-polar” storyline as well. Soap writers are SO incompetent when it comes to attempting to deal with important issues that EVERYONE would be better off if soap writers, like the crew which JFP now has working at Y&R, would just do everyone the favor of NOT attempting to deal with so-called “important” issues. So – no – I am NOT eager to have Kale Browne arriving to gobble up the tiny amounts of air time left over after Summer, Noah and Dylan gobble up their share. And No – I do NOT believe that Kale Browne will ONLY be appearing in Genoa City as a disc jockey. Eventually, JFP will find a way to hand Y&R’s remaining air time over to JFP’s Number One Friend of Jill!

Winsor Harmon Hopes Audience Reaction Will Prompt B&B’s Brad Bell: “To Start Writing for Thorne Again”

On tomorrow’s December 5th episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Winsor Harmon makes a return as Thorne Forrester, as Eric (John McCook) is set to throw a major Forrester family party since he plans on saying goodbye to his loved ones as he was given only a few months to live.

The last time Harmon visited the CBS daytime drama series was back in 2022 during a dream sequence of Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang).  Harmon has appeared on and off the series since from 1996- 2016.  For a short run, Ingo Rademacher took over the role from late 2017- to early 2019.

Joining Harmon during his return will be another B&B favorite, Ashley Jones who reprises her role as Bridget Forrester beginning on the December 6th episode of the soap opera.

Speaking with SOD on his latest comeback to BOLD, Harmon expressed his hope’s that out of his appearances will come a potential new story for Thorne down the line.

Winsor shared, “We’ll see how the audience reacts and I think things will start popping in Brad’s (Bell, executive producer/head writer) head and he’ll start writing for Thorne again.”

In terms of what Harmon was told when the series offered him to make a comeback for some upcoming episodes, the actor revealed, “They didn’t tell me anything.” So, apparently Winsor was in the dark when he said “yes” as to just what the story would be.

Coming up, look for some emotional moments for the Forrester family, as some people know of Eric’s condition, while other’s in the family do not.

So, do you hope that Brad Bell decides to write future story for Thorne Forrester and bring back into the canvas for a longer run as played by Winsor Harmon? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”
