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!

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.

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.

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!
