Kevin Schmidt OUT AGAIN at Y&R? Will There Be A New Noah?

Photo Credit: Getty Images

Looks like The Young and the Restless may be going in yet another direction with the character of Noah Newman, Sharon and Nick’s son!

Today, Kevin Schmidt who recently returned to the role (after being let-go once before) tweeted the news and stated, “Hey @Official_YandR! How many times you gonna try and bring in a “New Noah”? There’s only one! Sorry to those who watch for me.”

So that begs the question, what is the series going to do with the role? And if there is a “New Noah” who is it going to be?

So soapers, do you think Kevin is getting a raw deal here?   Would you like to have seen him continue in the role?  Or, who would you think would be a possible replacement?  Weigh-in!

I agree, Randy!

I think Kevin’s a great actor who’s getting a raw deal. I’m hoping one of the other soaps (GH would be great) picks him up pronto! He’ll land on his feet, regardless. He’s far too talented to languish for long.

It’s clear they’re trying to recast Noah once again and it just won’t work. This character since SORAS does NOT work. Let the character go.

This Noah is just fine thank you, w/ all the other changes going on at Y&R it would be smart to leave Kevin just where he is, a familiar face….I wonder if this idea is the old regime or the new one, if it is new one, good way to upset all the fans,

So no replacement is needed

I love this kid as Noah but really, the Y&R cast is HUGE-I cannot see a viable, interesting storyline for him. Everyone is creeping in on everyone else agewise, you can hardly tell the generations apart. I mean Noah almost seems as old as Daniel & Kevin, it is just weird & now Summer is so old. They just move characters along too fast.

kevin schmidt as noah newman should stay. they recasted before with that horrible actor. he only lasted for 6 months. why bother recasting noah again its going to blow in there ugly faces i mean the stupid producers. keep the current noah on please. he is a good actor. please recast ashley abbott as soon as possible. with the right actress. eileen davidson on days of our lives again beginning her first air date is october 10. young and the restless made a huge mistake in firing eileen davidson. if they ever ask eileen to come back to the young and the restless she hopefully will say no and spit on sony and the producers. eileen is a talented wonderful classy actress.

His character could be killed off like Cassie. I couldn’t care less at this point.

TommyBoy

They need to get rid of the whole musician thing for Noah, why does every young character have to do something in the arts? And they just need to reveal why he and Eden broke up, it’s been so long now that nobody cares, but they vaguely bring it up every once in a while like it’s this huge thing. I thought Noah was going to come out of the closet at Cassie’s grave when he said he had something to tell her, that would have been a huge thing to have a gay Newman and the only thing that makes sense of why he and Eden broke up. I like Kevin Schmidt as Noah, sorry to see him go. Again.

Christine
Christine

That’s a good point, TommyBoy. I also hate how they keep teasing some big breakup story, but never get on with it. The coming out could be true too.

And what about last year when they had that girl Hunter? That never amounted to anything.

Jules

It seems like he comes in an out every few months anyway. Is he on contract? If they’re going to recast, give the character more to do, or just leave him in NYC for a year until you figure something out that’s more viable to keep him around. But don’t keep having him pop in and out. If they are doing this recast immediately, they’re probably going to age him so he can mingle with the 25+ crowd and out of the recently SORASed 18 year olds’ orbit.

Is this true? sorry, has to do with Eileen Davidson… being let go and replaced with Beth Chamberlin. I just read this in Wikipedia… 08/14/12.

In July 2012, it was announced that Chamberlin will appraise the role of Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless after Eileen Davidson was let go from the show. Chamberlin will be reunited with Marcy Rylan, who played her daughter Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light. Rylan currently plays Abby Newman, Ashley’s daughter on The Young and the Restless, as the new Ashley.

I was going to ask the same thing. I tweeted her because I think it can not be true or it would have been posted by Micheal already?

Patrick

for the love of soaps… and to see Beth Chamberlin back on our screens… would be amazing.

Haven’t heard anything about Beth Chamberlin. I don’t trust everything I read in Wikipedia…anyone can write stuff on there.

WOW! I had not heard this bit of news. Michael Fairman, what do you know?

Christine
Christine

You had me intrigued so I looked up Beth Chamberlin (only) on Wikipedia and there is a link at the bottom of her page that goes to “wishful casting” and then straight to Daytime Confidential. I think you can probably blame Jamey Giddens for this. That being said, I do not see how that should even be on a Wikipedia page since it is someone’s wish list and not a real story. I thought Wikipedia cracked down on this kind of nonsense.

Patrick
Patrick

OK… shows how much i know… ie: about how Wikipedia works… i thought this was the real deal… and, my first thought when i did read this… was that MF, would already have told us.

i was like… how did this happen to Eileen… and yet i love both these ladies.

Tasha Jones

Just got a tweet from Beth and she confirmed that it is not true at all….but she would love to do it…hint hint Y&R

To Patrick –

Yeah, since Wikipedia exists because of volunteers, all you need is an account to create/edit pages. I remember back in 2009 someone had gotten a hold of Hilary Clinton’s page and wrote some nasty thing about her. It stayed up there for quite a while until someone got wind of it.

Before I had kids I actually created some pages of mostly soap actors and models (I started the one on Michael Graziadei), but my stuff was always being edited [too much] and the pictures were taken down because they were copyrighted and not part of their Wikipedia Commons. I understand, but I got mad when someone would just go and edit everything I worked on so I quit doing it. Now they complain they need donations. What surprises me is just HOW that article from Daytime Confidential was put up unless it was someone from DC that edited the page … which would not surprise me.

Oh, I almost forgot, back when Guiding Light was canceled someone got on Wikipedia and said, get this, that the characters of Mallett and Marina were going to GENERAL HOSPITAL. I like Wikipedia as much as the next person, but have learned to take what they say with a HUGE grain of salt and I do not rely on it for the absolute truth. 🙂

Scott

That was NEVER true about Beth. It was a wish casting by another blogger that some dimmed thought person put onto Wikipedia, which I immediately removed due to it being untrue.

Christine
Christine

Thank you, Scott! I hate when that happens. 🙂

Kevin Schmidt. I blame the writers… and the EP… at the time… MAB? What a loss… of all the younger cast…. Noah… was the most interesting… his chemistry with Nikki and Victor…. let alone… especially, Sharon… is a huge loss.

FANS of DOOL… what about Kevin Schmidt, as Shawn D.? Hope’s son? NIce huh? would make up for the loss of Bo… or is he too young? He’s that good an actor… course, it’ll always be in my opinion, Jason Cook. wishful thinking.

Mirko di Wallenberg

Why does a man with his acting skills still gets lured into the trap of the soap world! Are they that desperate to work even knowing that a few months down the line they will be dropped again and again! Do they not have any respect for themselves??? Another case like Adrienne Frantz!!!

iakovos
iakovos

Daytime dramas often use children as story points and then — surprise! — they remain on the canvas and grow up. Sure you can send them to boarding school in Switzerland or note they are at camp all summer, but you know what, they are part of the family. so please, writers, think ahead when birthing a baby. How will that child fit into its families (there is never a nuclear set of parents.. steps, halves…)? Are you content to have a child around for some time? Do you realize we like to see children grow up? Parenting is a potent source of story. Marriage and pregnancy are taken so lightly and used so commonly anymore, I have to wonder if the importance and the joy of such life events has been lost. SORAS-ing to the extremes Y&R and B&B do ruin things, it seems. The characters and the show’s future are painted into a corner. What to do?

As for Mr. Schmidt and Noah, this is a shame. I always thought Noah could be the sane one, the moral center for Nick and Sharon, two troubled parents who once upon a time were really compelling characters to follow. Now Nick cannot seem to follow a straight and narrow path. And Sharon’s character has been ruined to a point I do not know if she can come back. But oh, I would love to see her do it. What a fabulous story arc: the resurrection and rebirth of Sharon (ant in a vengeful angry way). Her son, Noah, could be the catalyst. And Mr. Schmidt would be good at playing in that plot, for sure.

Yet another example of SORASing the kids to death on Y&R. They age them and then their storyline just goes nowhere. Sigh…

lisa

I think it’s a big mistake to let Kevin Schmidt go – again.
He is a fine young actor ….who has been underused as Noah.
And what of this story line plot that something happened in Paris involving Noah and Eden….is that ever going to come to light – or is it just going to be another dropped thread ?

Good Luck Kevin !! Y&R’s loss will be someonelses gain.

This is so ridiculous. I was going to comment how great it was to see (Kevin’s) Noah at Jack and Nicki’s wedding. I hadn’t seen him in awhile and think he is a very talented, likeable actor. Didn’t they learn from that AWFUL, laughable, SORAS they did of Noah when he was suddenly a hipster musician? Yuck! No thanks. And I like hipster musicians, but not in that case.

I’d like to add I didn’t like Kyle before, but I REALLY don’t like SORAS Kyle. I don’t know who their casting director is, but they have had some real clinkers.

Christine
Christine

I don’t care for Blake Hood’s portrayal of Kyle either. It also seems they do not know how to write for him. First he is the ladies’ man sleeping with all of the available GC twenty-somethings (including a one night stand with Eden) and now he is Eden’s protector and acts like he is in love with her and all this after how he said he didn’t want to be serious with anyone.

All the while Eden was in hypnosis and flailing about I wanted to rip Kyle’s head off for interfering.

And just WHERE are they headed with Kyle at Newman Enterprises?? The fact that the actor looks so much like Michael Muhney (hair AND wardrobe) was just bad decision making.

Maybe the new team can have one of the characters have the last 5 years be just a dream (like Pam Ewing on Dallas) and fix a bunch of messes.

The kid will be fine. Looks like he’s standing in front of a CW sign. Maybe he already has a prime time gig in the works. It will just be a matter of time. He will probably show up years from now with an Oscar. Hold your head high and move on to the next big thing! Life Goes On. Young and Restless needs to get rid of all the kids and people not related to anyone who matters and start all over from scratch at this point. Keep Katherine…bring back Brenda Dickson as Jill and let them duke it out flike they did int the 70’s for some real ratings points. Oh yeah…I guess they need a man to fight over. How about Neil? Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. They might like to dip a little dark meat in their gravy. That would make things interesting for sure.

Lew
Lew

They need to figure out what they are going to do with the character. If they are going to age him, then he should be treated as an adult and not Sharon and Nick’s little boy. Did he graduate from college? College, did he graduate from high school??!!! I was afraid of Jill Farren Phelps joining this show, but maybe she can give it some direction. And that is something MAB couldn’t do. It’s a mess!!!!!!

Tiffany

The actor couldn’t commit full time so recast is needed for a good storyline hopefully.His Noah was a bore anyway

Tyson

I think that the Y&R should keep Kevin; he’s a talented actor, plays the part very well, and I think everybody enjoys him for the role of Noah Newman! I wish the Producers at Y&R would STOP firing Kevin and keep him for the role as Noah!

Who’s with me?!

i want kevin to stay too, he is an awesum actor and belongs on the young and the restless…….

On the latest episode of the Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) chats with host. Michael Fairman as Brady’s story hits a major turning point!  As DAYS fans know, Brady recently hit the sheets with “Nicole” who was Kristen in disguise.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
