Michelle Stafford Chats On Plans For Stafford Project, Her Guest Stars & Auditioning!

The Stafford Project is a bonafide hit! The web series developed and created by two-time Daytime Emmy winner Michelle Stafford with her pals Paige Dorian And Paige Long has been must see viewing every time Michelle announces a new episode is about to be posted!

In an full-length interview with Soap Opera Uncensored with a few quotes also posted from it in a joint piece with Huffington Post Canada, Stafford relates what the plans are for the series:  “When you’re doing a show like this, you don’t necessarily think of the outcome more than doing something truthful that people can relate to. There are so many people who want to jump on. We have a lot of production companies who want to take us to the next level saying, ‘We want to package it and take it to Netflix.’ We’re like, ‘Huh?’ So, my partners and I made an agreement to finish the 10 episodes. This way no one can come in and f–k with it. We wanted a complete arc for this character, so people can see the season and get who this woman is. We didn’t want anyone to come in and change anything because that’s just the worst.”

Recently, Stafford revealed on Twitter that she was auditioning for a role on ABC’s primetime series, Scandal.  She spoke of why the decision to let her followers know which is in line with letting the fans know she is not coming back to Y&R any time soon!  “I know I shouldn’t have tweeted that (considering the jinx rule), but there are so many fans who tweet me daily about coming back to ‘Y&R.’ As much as I totally appreciate it, I’ve moved on. I guess because Phyllis is in a coma, I’d say about 35 percent of fans think I’ll come out of it. I’m not, but watch “The Stafford Project.” I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings but I’m doing other stuff.”

As for the hilarious star-turn appearances by Kelly Preston and former Y&R cast mate Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) that has had fans totally abuzz with the show and how that came about,  Stafford said ,”The only episode that wasn’t planned was the one with Kelly Preston because she really wanted to be in the show, so we wrote that special just to put her in it and throw in the soap opera aspect. With Josh Morrow’s episode, Josh came up with the character, so we did that right away because we thought it was very funny.”

So what do you think of The Stafford Project and where it is heading? Wanting to see more?   Let us know!

Looks like she is having fun so I for one am happy for anyone who is doing something they love. Do I want a recast NO! JFP has moved away from this character and has other stories she is telling and once she finishes putiing the rest of the nails in the character of Sharon she will be thrilled. I hop SC finds something she loves I wish she had the guts like MS to just walk.

Great. Hope you get the job. Sure most of your fans want you back at Y&R, that’s where we first met you and became your biggest fans. You’ve moved on and when the great Phyllis is recasted we will move on as well. We truly wish you well with all things.

Bittersweet Michelle. Y&R fans want you back so bad because of who you are and how pivotal your character is BUT with your talent, daytime loss is everyone else’s gain. SP is so good and it is nice to watch something for only about ten minutes and be totally fulfilled. Your show is like popping one of the Andes chocolate mints in your mouth when you have a craving for chocolate. Yummy!

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
