She seems so much happier since she got off the show. In light of recent events, I understand why. That set seems like a tense place with rampant egos.

Can’t wait to see the finale -especially James Scott :). I have enjoyed the episodes, especially White Secret & I laughed out loud at the one with the date with the singer who sang “Michelle My Belle” to Michelle. Guys do that to me too. It’s so awkward!

Michael, this interview was beyond, beyond fabulous! Loved seeing Michelle again in her latest envirerment. She seems happy in her new role as a producer.Her fans will be delighted when her show returns with all the terrific stars. Loved this interview, Michael, because you and Michelle are so comfortable with each other. I was happy to see Michelles’ daughter who is an early actress all by herself. Looking forward to the next go-around, Kudos to all and happy holidays!!

My question is: Will Phyllis’s character be replaced by another actress so that, that wench Sharon can finally get what’s coming to her for Phyllis’s accident. How much longer are we gonna have to hear about how much she loves her soap daughter before she is written off??

I actually prefer Michelle in her series “The Stafford Project” to playing Phyllis on Y&R. I do miss her in scenes with Peter Bergman, Christian LeBlanc, and the Graz but he left too. I would love to see The Graz and Peter on her web series, also Elizabeth Hendrickson, Nancy Lee Grahn and Vanessa Marcil. I’d love to see Maurice Benard and Michelle too. I love love love The Stafford Project, it’s so funny and I always thought Michelle tried to bring humor to Phyllis. I always liked when she got to do comedy on Y&R. I cannot wait to see Crystal play a drug addict!! HILARIOUS!!

I’m more in love now with Michelle in her Web Series then I ever was Phyllis on Y&R and before The Stafford Project aired, I didn’t think that was possible!! I hope The Stafford Project is around for Seasons and Seasons to come. Congratulations Michelle on all your success, you are one Funny Lady!

Hey Shawna,
Ita love Michelle’s series, she is so likeable, but have missed her as spunky Phyllis!
She writes better stuff for herself, natch.
Miss her with Jack and his Red, would love for Peter Bergman to guest on the SProject what a hoot that would be! When she left I felt robbed of my reunion of Red and Jack.
Nice interview here .
Thanks Michael Fairman.

‘Grand Hotel’s’ Lincoln Younes Cast As Lead In CW’s Reboot Pilot of ‘The Lost Boys’

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.

The entire soap world and daytime community is saddened today with the news of the passing of a true icon and TV pioneer, Lee Phillip Bell.

According to her children, William James Bell, Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and Lauralee Bell Martin (Christine, Y&R), Lee passed away on February 25th at the age of 91.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
