The hottie factor just went up a notch in Genoa City with the casting news today that The Young and the Restless has added Miles Gaston Villanueva as its latest cast member.

Villanueva is set to play the all-new role of Luca Santori described as “Strong-willed, confident and charismatic.”  Miles will appear beginning on the September 16th episode of the CBS Daytime drama, according to Soap Opera Digest.

If you think Miles looks familiar, you are right!  He already appeared on Y&R in the short term role of Father Eric, who assisted Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Paul (Doug Davidson) for the search of their child.

The actor also appeared on Days of our Lives in the role of Russ back in 2014, and has been seen on Melissa & Joey, Chasing Life, NCIS and Bones to name a few.

So could Luca be a relative of Marissa’s (Sofia Pernas) or Marco’s (Peter Bergman)?  Why do you think Luca comes to Genoa City? Who could he be paired romantically with? Share your theories in the comment section below!

He’s good–wish him all the best. But we have not seen Jill in months and we only saw Collin for a hot minute last week.
If they could provide work for the veterans while introducing new characters to the canvas that would be fine.
But lately soaps such as Y&R and GH cannot seem to strike a balance between new characters and established characters and yes, it can be done

Regarding Jill, actress Jess Walton is no longer listed in the credits at the end of the show. Haven’t seen her name listed in months. I’m wondering if she has left the show for good or not!

Jess isn’t on contract, she is recurring, which means her name will only appear in the credits on the week her character is actually on screen. Since they haven’t used her in a long time her name hasn’t been there– but far as I know she is still with the show.

Not long ago Daniel Goddard posted a picture of himself and Jess and said something like she was back to work.

No offense to him, but just what GC needs, another newcomer!

I believe Luca will come between Kyle & Summer!

We can only hope that Summer is whisked far, far away.

I have to admit I missed today’s episode because I was so angry that yesterday they pointed a finger at Mark Harding. He is such a great actor and if he’s a dirty cop (which their trying to prove) then he’ll be off the show. There has been so many complaints about other actors on Y & R but we seem to lose the good ones all the time. Marisa makes me ill and Noah was so good with Courtney. I hoping Summer goes up to the cabin and get killed by fake Jack and Mark Harding kills fake Jack. Then he can stay on and start over.

I see him being related to Marisa. She needs others family members or people she has had a past to role into GC if she is not related to anyone such as Victor. I believe that could be a possibility.

Ugh! Marisa does NOT need any family. She needs to take her little lying butt and exit Genoa City pronto.

Let’s get back to the Abbotts, Newmans, Baldwin/Fishers, Winters and be done with all these “newbies.”

What’s with that name??? Horrible!! Haha. Emma, now this guy?? Let’s focus on the cast at hand, please.

Ok, I will try this again. No offense to the actor, but do we need another newcomer in GC?

Mary SF

Lets hope he has a better fate than that Chavez character and his sister that were on like for a New York minute, a couple years back— definitely need a Latino presence in GC–I don’t mind newbies if they can act and if they are given a story that is anchor to a vet.

What a waste with Chavez! Ignacio Serricchio was not only eye candy, but he could ACT too. He had chemistry with Abby (Emme Rylan) and potential for being a solid member of the PCPD, but of course, they had to ruin it!

Now they are doing the same with Harding. What a waste!

Mary SF
Mary SF

O I totally agree about Harding– such a waste– and it didn’t have to happen. They made the mystery of who killed those two young people so easy that most of us had it figured out months ago, so in order to “give it a surprise twist” they threw poor Harding under the bus. Now we know what is coming– Dylan will become a police officer and because of his service in the army, he will be lead detective in no time flat and work side by side with daddy Paul.

Nikki

I agree. Leave Mark Harding alone. We love him and the way he gets along with Kevin is fantastic. Have him kill fake Jack & Summer end of story.

I think he’ll be linked up with Chelsea

Either useless Abby or Summer.

Forgive me if I am wrong as it has been quite a while since I have been out of school, but what is with all the Italian sounding character names (I have Italian heritage by the way)?

“Marco” is supposed to be a Peruvian drug lord, no? Then the names “Annicelli” and “Santori” appear to be more in line with someone from Argentina, not Peru. Even the first name “Marisa” seems more Italian (like Marisa Tomei).

He played Father Martin, not Father Eric (perhaps you’re thinking of Eric on DOOL, who was a priest for awhile?). He first aired 9/18/13.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talker A Go: Set For Launch 2020

CBS Television Distribution is getting more into the daytime talk show arena, with their first series of that kind in quite some time, after confirming that Drew Barrymore will indeed have a daytime talk show that now will premiere in the fall of 2020.

The new syndicated talk show has already had CBS Television Stations signing on as the first station group around the country to carry the show. New York and Los Angeles are on-board as two key heavyweight markets.

According to Deadline: the pickup for Barrymore’s talker came rather quickly just two months after she shot the pilot for it in the Big Apple.

The decision to move forward with Drew’s new show comes on the heels of a strong showing by NBC Universal’s new daytime talker, The Kelly Clarkson Show and the good start for Disney’s Tamron Hall Show.

As to where in the day-part the syndicated series hosted by Barrymore might fall in your daily viewing schedule is yet to be determined.

With solid ratings for Kelly Clarkson, Tamron Hall, and a new Barrymore talk series on the way; do you think it signifies more trouble ahead for your daytime soap operas in the long-run, or will everyone be able to have their slots and retain their audience and co-exist happily ever-after? Share your theories via the comment section below.
