The Practice favorite, Michael Baldalucco is set to debut on The Young and the Restless on October 13th when he begins his role as bookie, Hogan, who will go after Jeffrey Bardwell (Ted Shackleford) and Gloria (Judith Chapman) to get back some much needed cashola!  And, what if the bungling lovebirds don’t cough it up?  Ah, well let’s just say Hogie has a bad side too.  In a new interview out today with TV Guide, Michael B. had this say about his first foray working in daytime with soapfamous Y&R EP, Paul Rauch, and a bit about his new alter-ego Hogan.

Baldalucco on how it is going being on a soap: “Well, they haven’t fired me! Paul Rauch is the big executive over there and he’s very, very nice, but he did have to give me some pointers. That guy is like the voice of God, with his voice coming over the loudspeaker. I was trying to do a little bit of business with Judith — I had Hogan being kind of friendly with Gloria because in soap operas you fool around with the girls, right? — but I guess I was moving too quickly. Paul told me to stick to business! At Y&R, there is no screwing up! There is no slouching!”

Baldalucco on just who is this Hogan fellow he is portraying: “He’s a great character — the kind of guy who’ll cry at a wedding, but then the next day he might have to break the groom’s legs over an unpaid bet.”

What the Fluck is up with Y&R? Total exclusion of Ashbys/Winters/Tucker from ALL GC Events and limiting this Family to one bloody day a week whilst inundating us with worthless shitake about nothing the other four days? Kristoff, Khalil and Goddard are too Gorgeous and talented to waste whilst the OAP (in this instance “Ordinary Arse People”) are crammed down our throats 24/7! Are MAB and Rauch on bad crack? Come back Lynn, Josh and Cherie–PUHLEEZE!

Brandon Barash Talks Stefan & Those Stabi Sex Scenes; Plus Freddie Smith & Acting Coach Maria O’Brien On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On an all-new episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Live Podcast, Brandon Barash is the special guest for the first time since taking over the role of Stefan DiMera, originally played by Tyler Christopher.

During Barash’s interview with host, Michael Fairman, the actor chats on being a replacement for a role on the soaps which happens many-a-time,  plus why he plays bad boys so well; given that daytime drama fans first were introduced to Brandon from his work as mobster Johnny Zacchara on General Hospital.

Currently, Brandon is involved in the most steamy story on Days that of Stefan and Gabi’s (Camila Banus) contentious relationship.  While now Gabi has set out her revenge plan on Stefan; which included having sex with him, the tables are turning and these two bad apples are seemingly drawn to each other in more ways than just hitting the tabletops and desktops for a quick romp.  Barash fills the listener in on his take on the #Stabi relationship, and the trouble he has been put in thanks to the lies of Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Ted (Gilles Marini).

Later in the podcast, Fairman sits down with Freddie Smith (Sonny) and the Days of our Lives on-set acting coach, Maria O’Brien, as the two of them gives listeners insight on how Maria works with the cast to get them ready to hit the soundstage to deliver their lines, their monologues and get to the heart and deep-meaning in their emotional scenes.   Smith and O’Brien delve into some of Sonny’s most emotional scenes, and the rigors of acting in a long-running soap opera which shoots at such a tremendously fast paced.

You can download the episode available now on iTunes here, or head over to NBC.com/Inside Salem and check it out there.

So, are you digging Brandon as Stefan O DiMera? Are you rooting for Gabi and Stefan to wind up together more than just sexually, but in perhaps in a serious relationship? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

Elizabeth Hendrickson Makes Another Return To Y&R

There will be more drama surrounding Chloe on The Young and the Restless. Elizabeth Hendrickson, who just recently made a return to the CBS Daytime drama series after her year on General Hospital as Margaux Dawson, and who was key to bringing back Adam Newman to the canvas in Genoa City and the story surrounding him, is coming back for another round on the top-rated soap.

Hendrickson posted on her Instagram a throwback photo to her and Y&R’s Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) with the following words in her post: “Found an oldie but a goodie! Who’s ready for some of this again?! Back at @youngandrestlesscbsand excited for what’s to come.”

In story, Adam (Mark Grossman) had Chloe kidnapped and has her man Kevin (Greg Rikaart) blackmailed to do his bidding in order to keep Chloe safe and from not having to serve time in prison for his attempted murder.

And there is still the unanswered question … if Chloe and Adam can co-exist in the same orbit, or if they will ever be able to get past the horrific moment in both their lives when Adam killed Chloe’s daughter in a hit and run accident?

So, glad to know there will be more Liz on Y&R? Share your thoughts below.
