After four years as Rick Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, Kyle Lowder has been let-go by the series and has parted ways with the Brad Bell soap opera.  It seems lack of story, which has clearly been issue for awhile now is the instigator for the casting move. 

Soap Opera Digest spoke with Lowder who revealed,  “Brad Bell ( executive producer/head writer) called this morning and said he felt terrible that they haven’t been able to generate enough story for the character. He felt it was in everybody’s best interest that we go in different directions. From my standpoint, it’s an amicable situation. Obviously, it’s their choice, but at the same time, the story has been slow for over a year-and-a-half and like any professional in any line of work would do, you prepare yourself for the next step. So, it wasn’t a surprise that it was going to happen, but it was handled in the most respectful way and I have huge respect for Brad. I had a great four years there and I thank him for the opportunity. And now, onto the next thing.”

On-Air On-Soaps wishes Kyle all the best, and looks forward to following his next acting endeavors!

First Bridget is relegated to “recurring” and now this. I hate when these shows dismiss legacy characters in favor of characters the viewers dont have anything invested in. I would have preferred to see Amber and Rick ultimately reunite instead of having her revert to the old Amber. The cast is too large as it is, the show should be expanded to an hour or they need deep cast cuts. I havent watched in weeks because I find the storylines to be assinine: Thomas all of a sudden falling in love with Brooke, Taylor’s histrionics, Amber’s absurd pregnancy and now… Read more »

I hope DAYS brings him back. He and Ari Zuker (real life wife) sizzle with chemistry. I enjoy the current Brady- maybe he could come back as Eric Brady.

In my opinion. Kyle is more suited to days of our lives. I so wish tptb, would bring him back and pair him up with Nadia. I adore their on screen chemistry. Nadia always looked like a pro opp Kyle, they had a beautiful love story. He complimented her really well, and as did Nadia to Kyle.

They’re forcing trashy Amber onto the younger set w/ this stupid pregnancy. Trashbag Amber battling classy Hope for boring Liam is so dumb bec Amber and Rick’s child is actually older than Hope! Thus, the writers wouldn’t want to reunite Rick w/ Amber or even address their relationship since it crimps the younger set’s storylines. Conroy is 1 of B&B’s few good actors while Matula’s great acting overshadows Frantz. It would be terrible if they sacrificed golden haired, rich, virginal, teenage heroine Hope to make skanky Amber the protagonist yet again. They did that w/ golden haired, rich, virginal, teenage… Read more »

Lowder is recurring according to a message board. So I guess that means Rick is going to be like Thorne. All the char of Thorne does is talk abt other characters’ storylines or talk abt boring FC corporate crap whenever they use him during throwaway sequences. The writers seriously do not have a clue w/ what to do w/ majority of the B&B characters.

Is on air on soaps going to be reporting abt the racist, hate mail that Stephanie Wang has received? She portrays Madison. She’s the only Asian actress on B&B. I don’t think she’s even recurring! Soap opera network’s message board has a topic abt it. B&B already has the worst track record w/ racial diversity despite revolving around LA fashion. Yet its only Asian actress is getting racist, hate mail. Terrible.

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.

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.
