The Young and the Restless Kristoff St. John (Neil) and his former on-screen soap opera iconic flame, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla) appeared on Thursday morning on Fox’s Good Day LA promoting their upcoming TV movie, A Baby For Christmas which bows on UP TV this Sunday night at 7:00PMET/PT.  When talking with Good Day LA co-host Steve Edwards, the duo related how Victoria, (who is one of the executive producer of the new TV movie)  asked Kristoff to join the cast, and come onboard and also server as of the executive producers on the project.

They discuss their now 25-year partnership which viewers have seen on and off on The Young and the Restless and various projects (this being their second TV film together). St. John expressed on Victoria’s Drucilla being MIA on the number one soap opera and collaborating with her: “Man, I’ve been missing her on the show.”

Rowell then relates that A Baby for Christmas is a story with meaning, is multi-generational, and ties in foster care which Victoria has continued to be an advocate for over many years.

In a couple awkward moments while discussing ugly Christmas sweaters, Kristoff makes an off-the-cuff remark harkening back to the sweaters worn by Bill Cosby on his comedy series, to which Rowell relays she worked with Cosby and began to intimate her experience was not a negative one, but the deft Victoria was quickly able to steer the interview back to the subject at hand – their TV movie.

Later, Steve Edwards who was unaware that Kristoff’s beloved son, Julian died last year after his battle with mental illness in a mental health care facility, learns the harrowing information during their chat.   St. John then takes the opportunity to mention his lawsuit against the facility, and touchingly talks about the death of his son, and the  support he received from family and friends.

Watch Kristoff and Victoria’s interview on Good Day LA after the jump, and let us know if you will be checking out A Baby For Christmas this Sunday!

KSJ never has had chemistry with anyone but VR on Y&R and if nothing else she stills looks smashing.

I love Victoria, albeit I am in the minority. Frankly? I simply DO NOT CARE how people feel about her. She is a great person and actress. It is so good to see her up and about.
By the same token, Kristoff is not one of my favorite people….we all have our opinions and favorites.

To be honest when I first heard about them doing this movie together I thought well I wonder how much heat KSJ is going to get from CBS/Sony. I deliberately try real hard not to know or get to know these guys personally I like to just watch them on screen. I was not on the set so concerning VR I have no idea what or what she did not experience. Only one actor did I know well from Y&R and that was completely by accident and he is deceased now. I figure they put their pants on the same way I do one leg at a time nothing special about them. LOL

@K/Kay.
You see it so clearly, Kay, and put it so simply….You’re right, of course. But, if you remember, months ago, people just crucified Victoria. I asked and thought the same thing….how vicious everyone was. Were they there? I certainly was not. So, how could I pass judgment based on what the media decides to print or say? I suppose my analytical mind comes from the fact that both my parents are attorneys….lol. I am used to hearing the pros and cons of life, in general, frequently. Lol.
As far as Kristoff? Well, I never took a liking to him. I can’t even explain why. We can’t like everybody. But, I adore Victoria….always have.
They are regular people….some with mor inflated egos than others, yes; but, we, the fans, put them on a pedestal. Nothing they do may be earth shattering. But, they do entertain us. That makes me very grateful ….love my soaps.

Boy, do I wish things could be put to rest so Neil and Drucilla could be reunited on Y&R. There is so much being missed without her.

Yes! Thank You

why not? it’s the #1 soap with a supposed influx of ready cash… from all the monies it makes internationally and with high premiums with advertisement

it’s my understanding… Y&R has a huge following… with , here we go… politically correct… African American… I mean this respectfully…. a black family that was ready made… and featured the heck out of this couple

Victoria Rowell… is so much better, intriguing and interesting… than Lily and Devon! what snores Neil has!

for Serials… to give us that token family… argh! this bothers me… so be it! HIRE a known recognizable… figure… (iconic) actress to lead Neil !

this has been so dour and with no end in site… so they come up with the lamest stories w/ Lilly and Devon….. THEY ARE DULL !

let Drucilla come home

Hello Victoria Rowell… you look smashing and teasingly fresh and relatable to the man… theres a pulsating undercurrent to the two of you

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
