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 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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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.

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?

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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!!!

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… Read more »

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

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!!!!!!

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

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?!

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
