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!

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.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
