Kim Zimmer (Ex- Reva, GL & Echo, OLTL) who has been busy on the boards in the theatre,  is now set to for a terrific role in the highly touted independent feature film, 23 Blast!  Principal photography begins Monday in Corbin,  Kentucky!

The Daytime Emmy winner will play the on-screen mother to another daytime favorite, Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan, DAYS) who plays the lead role in 23 Blast!  Zimmer plays the role of  Mary Freeman.

Toni Hoover and Bram Hoover wrote the 23 Blast  script, which follows a high school football star (Hapka) who’s suddenly stricken with irreversible blindness and the choice he’s forced to make regarding whether he should return to the sport.

Glee’s Max Adler will play another football player who’s initially unsupportive of his teammate but eventually comes around.  Many recall, Adler played the bully in the closet on the hit FOX show.

We think this film sounds extremely compelling, and look forward to its future! What do you think of Kim playing Mark’s mom? Let us know!

Another way to look at it is thanks to Echo messing with Charlie, we had the fun of watching Viki slap Echo after finding her with Charlie, Viki and Dorian team up against her, Sam as Spiderman rescue Dorian, Viki reunite with Clint, and together living happily ever after.

I love Kim, congrats and it does sound like a good movie! Kim will forever be Reva to me, not her other characters being not familiar with all of them. Nothing like when Reva Shayne blew into Springfield.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
