Sean Carrigan has made quite the impression on the powers-that-be and apparently the viewers of the CBS daytime drama!  Yesterday, Sean tweeted the news that he has been officially put  on contract by the number one soap!

Carrigan said in his tweet, “Thrilled to be on contract at #YR and excited for what is ahead for “Stitch” on @CBSDaytime @YRInsider @YandR_CBS #CBS

So, look for more Stitch, and for the former war vet/medical man to be integrated further into the story in Genoa City!

As you recall, Stitch was introduced as a war buddy of Steve Burton’s Dylan, and was the red-herring in the … “Who’s the bio-son of Nikki Newman drama?”

Now with the new contract, who do you think will truly end up being Stitch’s love interest?  What would you like to see happen for the character?  Are you happy there will be more Stitch time on Y&R?  Comment below!

Love this casting news! Stitch is an awesome character and Sean a phenomenal actor, so I hope to see him developed more!

I was thinking the same thing like to see SC with a new love interest and totally new direction. I hope he is not just there to be Dylan’s side kick can we say Spinelli!

Kinda awkward to introduce him to the canvas permanently when he has been established as having a wife and child when we first met him on-screen. Might get in the way of the inevitable love interest. Will be difficult to extricate him from that relationship without screen-time to watch it fall apart when the viewer has no investment in his off-screen marriage.

Perhaps his ”wife and child” is a lie 🙂

He may be married, but it might not be happy. I don’t really care either way. Too many characters etc. already on the show.

You don’t need screen time to end a marriage. Don’t know if you watch B&B, but on that show Brooke and Ridge went off on their honeymoon– and she came back alone, and we just “heard” about Ridge and her breaking up– off screen. Also on Days the character Lucas was engaged to this lady Autumn which we never saw, but eventually she ended the relationship– all done off screen. So Stitch could get a letter or e-mail from his wife saying she doesn’t want to move to GC or she met someone else while he has been out of… Read more »

But we’ve watched Brooke & Ridge for 25 years. Lucas has been on Days for what, since the early 90s? We knew those characters, and even if their relationships ended off-screen, the viewer had a level of investment. In what I think was Stitch’s first episode, he was established as a devoted husband, father, and stand-up war veteran. To integrate him onto the canvas, he ultimately needs to be single, because yes, this cast is too bloated as it is when Summer’s bestie whats-her-name is getting her own story with a love interest and a drug addiction, and that love… Read more »

“…the man is smoking hot and can apparently act”

The Man is smoking HOT… and can ACT

he is on FIYAH hot statuesque… boldly reels studly, masculine, sweaty stimuli

“It’s honestly more thought than I ever planned to give the Stitch character”

he’s superlative… takes my breath away… give me a chance… I need your show

he may make up for the BIG miss Carmine.

You made some valid points and you’re right about Courtney, Summer’s BFF is a huge waste of screen time. No one is invested in her and Noah’s romance– as for Stitch, they might make that new character “Annie” played by CW as his wife. If they did that they wouldn’t need to bring in another new character to play his wife Jenna. As for his son if he were the boy “Annie” mentioned dying– this would mean they wouldn’t the character Max, Stitch’s son either. I think part of the problem was JG the old HW did not intend for… Read more »

Sorry I meant CW character Kelly could be his wife– why do I want to call her character Annie? Oh well, thought I should correct that before someone wonders who the heck Annie is.

I like the actor and character and I was disappointed when he did not turn out to be Nikki’s son. I do hope the rumors of him being Nikki next love interest is not true because we all know sooner or later she ends up back with Victor. Jack and Paul are the only former love interest left on the show, all the others were either killed off or left.

Since Eileen D is returning, it would be nice to see her with a new interest unlike any of her previous guys, the woman needs a decent story cause why she returns to YR is always a mystery to me. She never gets a good story. I could see Sharon with someone new, but frankly Sharon has been so unlikeable to me anyway, I don’t care anymore…lol. Anyway, I see good things for Sean. He seems really likeable.

I thought he had a wife and kids? I like the character and they can always use a doctor. He will probably be dealing with the Niki illness and with Dylan learning of his bio-mother. He needs to get his family to GC. No need for a relationship with them.

I had a feeling that Y&R was gonna put Sean Carrigan on-contract…eventually. Not only is SC HOT HOT HOT, but his character of Stitch is WAY MORE WATCHABLE than that dull-as-dishwater Dylan. Dylan=No Thank You. I cannot wait to see how SC’s character of Stitch is gonna interact and all with the rest of the Y&R characters. We shall see………..

There’s always a way to eliminate an off-screen family. I’m sure they didn’t think ahead when they wrote his back story, so it’s easy enough to write the family away.
Or bring them on the show and get rid of some of the other slugs that aren’t as interesting as Stitch!

He’s soo hot!
Although I just saw Young and the Restless today-June 25th 2014 and saw that Stich was having sex with a lady, as we know he’s very sexy wouldn’t it be different if he would have a gay bromance if he didn’t have sex with a lady.
Sean Carrigan I know you were a Boxer that I am challenging you to a fight!
So fans, as Michael Buffer would chant “LET’S GET REAAAADY TO RUMBLE”.

B&B’s Don Diamont Returns To Y&R

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
