I think I’ll do a wait and see on this one. I did like her on NYPD and for the short time she was on CSI Miami. I’m happy to see Bill Bochtrup has also signed on but my overall favourites were the ever unpopular David Caruso and the wonderful Dennis Franz.

I agree about David Caruso. I loved him. Dennis Franz too. I liked Ricky Schroeder but the writers ruined his character.

As a fan of NYPD Blue, this discussion caught my eye and I am thrilled to learn about it! I thought I’d make my comments in reply to you, Celia, as I know we’ve been out of touch for a while — I’m the one with very sporadic visits… Glad to see that you were also a fan of this show! I did watch every episode. Like @GramS, I am disappointed that Dennis Franz won’t be a part of this. Same apparently goes for David Caruso. But I liked the entire cast, and I am hopeful to see many others returning…

But getting back to you, my Friend, so glad that you continue to be a bright light here! I hope that all is well with you and your loved ones, and I wish you all the best in 2019!

Hi, James,
Good to hear from you….I’ve missed all of you….I’ve missed our chats–life happens….Ive been subbing more oft than not—no school today, though!!
I can’t say I don’t enjoy it, because I do—I try to work around my daughter’s schedule ( pre-school).
She’ll be in school full-time come fall….so, I will, most likely, teach full-time again–
Agreed, my friend—-I’ve always loved Kim Delaney —-I remember watching in my dorm room —the care-free days, James, LOL.
I wish you the best 2019, as well, my friend.❤️

Thanks for your warm reply, Celia! 🙂

Regarding NYPD Blue, I hope to see unsung hero, Medavoy (Gordon Clapp), in this reboot. And Kim Delaney has always been a fan favorite.

So glad to hear that all is going well with you! And that you’re enjoying teaching. I also fondly remember “care-free days,” Celia, and I try to recapture them whenever I can, and I will try to stop by here on occasion, too. Again, best to you and your family! Take care, Friend!

I’m wondering what position Diane Russel will be playing. She should be the captain

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
