Justin Hartley (Adam) / dead in the water, to me..
I am a big MM fan and he is the one and only Adam..

Burgess Jenkins (Billy) / a huge fail, to me..

Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) so far so good.. (still not thee Red, but OK..

Scott Elrod (Joe) .. I like 🙂

su0000 doesn’t it just tear at the very fabric of all that is true and good to have to relinquish any lingering negative thoughts of GT as Phyllis. Now people will clamor for either GT or MS whenever the character goes off on extended leave and returns. That didn’t even happen for the Jill Abbot recasts…we wanted Brenda Dickson back in all her glory and she will always be the definitive Jill but we love JessWalton…this time…altogether different. Why Burgess Jenkins continues to appear is a mystery. He has the Abbot look so that’s all I can figure. Never has so one so unsuited for a role been allowed so much dead air time. Well…Cady McClain now too..sooo..Justin i’m just not sure..MM understood and created Adam to a capital A..Justin just won’t come on with the same chops as capital T..i.e. GT..won’t be the same and may prove to be a hard sell..but in scenes with BJ he will SHINE SHINE SHINE…THAT will be JH saving grace..put him in ample scenes with nuBilly..a new Y&R star is born..oh don’t let me forget the signature su0000…LOL…LOL

Dave, you forgot the quintessential smiley face.
I honestly cannot understand anyone declaring that a recast will be dead in the water before they’ve even been given a chance? Maybe, just maybe, the new Adam will be a hit. As I recall when the first Adam vacated the role and Michael Muhney was cast, a collective roar of outrage could be heard coming from the bleachers. ‘No, no one can else can play Adam!” And then Michael happened.
SU000, I will give you an A + for inconsistency. You claimed Phyllis could not be recast but now you admit (without really admitting that you were wrong) that Gina is working. You claimed Jason could not be recast but you have been singing from the rafters that Billy Miller is the ultimate Jason. I don’t mind you having strong opinions but you move from A to Z without any warning and trying to follow your train of thought would give one whiplash. And then you suffer from short term memory loss and do not seem to remember what you said a week ago.
What I am saying here is you need to open your mind up to possibilities and stop prejudging new actors before they’ve been given a chance to get their footing.
Some recasts will ultimately fail and some will triumph. Life happens, recasts happen–just ask Darren Stephens.

Oh, Su…you just like Joe !!!! How dare you just like?????….LOL.
Seriously though, no one has the right to look so good…so scrumptious.

I think Gina is doing a great job with Phyllis so far. As for Justin, I’m really hopeful that he’ll do well in the role of Adam. After all, I don’t think they would have hired him if he wasn’t up to par for the role. I really like Scott and I’m looking forward to seeing where Joe’s story goes from here – I think he’ll be Matt Clark’s brother and it will somehow tie into the return of Amy Wilson…

As for Burgess… words can’t describe how disappointed I am in his casting. He sounds like he’s reading the dialogue when he speaks, he cannot act nearly half as well as Billy Miller or even David Tom, and at times he looks older than Jack, and he’s supposed to be his much younger brother. Sure, he has okay chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan, but that’s because MCE has great chemistry with everyone. I really hope TPTB either take Billy off the canvas for a while or find a suitable actor for the role, soon! Ironically, I think Justin Hartley would have made a great Billy… but Burgess is a huge fail for me.

I too once said Justin shouldve played Billy with Burgess as Joe and the actor playing Joe shouldve been Adam…

Gotta agree about the Billy recast. It’s been disappointing and I have a hard time buying him as a romantic lead. He just seems flat and awkward to me but MCE saves the whole thing. She’s really working overtime to sell it. AH doesn’t seem even bother putting much into it in the Villy scenes.

I’m really excited about JH though. He’s always been great at interviews so it should be good. I’ve also enjoyed Gina’s performance and Scott Elrod is ok so far. His delivery is a little bit dull but he is very good looking and his character is mysterious.

So very excited to see Justin Hartley in action as Adam.

I think Burgess Jenkins had a rough transition as Billy but he is growing on me. I really loved his scenes with little Sophie on Tuesday and he has incredible chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan.

I love Gina but she’s not Phyllis to me. I loved Phyllis because she was this fiery loose cannon who was her own worst enemy not a cold and calculating terminator.

Haven’t seen enough of Joe Clark to have an opinion.

Jimmy

Give Gina time, I’m sure she’ll become Phyllis for you. Trust me, I felt the same way because Michelle Stafford has always been Phyllis, but I think Gina is doing very well so far. She’s definitely one of the better recasts in Y&R’s recent history.

And the only reason Burgess has chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan is because it’s Melissa Claire Egan, she has chemistry with everyone they pair her in scenes with, both romantically and not. BJ does not add to the scenes at all. And he also has very little chemistry with anyone else.

Burgess and Gina are better than the previous actors. Since I only started watching this soap after AMC was canceled, I don’t have the connection that long time viewers have. I am really liking Gina and Burgess a lot. MM was really good as Adam. The new Adam has a lot of work to be as good as he was. I just wish the new Adam would hurry up and start appearing as more than just an arm! I think Y&R is just getting better and better. The sets are brighter, the hairstyles and makeup are better. And Victor and Nikki are actually talking to each other instead of jaw clenching whispering! I have nothing but thumbs up for Y&R.

Burgess is better than Billy Miller? Hahahahaha. BM just won the Outstanding Lead Actor Emmy. Burgess won’t sniff one, EVER.

KateA may have been referring to David Tom since technically he was the last one before BJ. IMO BJ is the worst recast in the last 20 yrs! I think even DO was doing fine. I’m surprised he is still there, too. He maybe could have come on as another character.
I’m so irritated that ABC has dome nothing to promote Billy Miller at GH. Why not The View? Irks me.

CeeCee

Whaaaat???? Seriously? OMG. KateA, with all due respect, if by your own admission, you are not familiar with Miller and Stafford, how can you even begin to make a comparison? No way, no how . Gina is wonderful, but too soon to tell if she even comes close to what Michelle DID as Phyllis.
Burgess? No comment.

KateA
KateA

I am familiar with Stafford and Miller. Billy Miller was on AMC before he went to Y&R. When I started watching Y&R, they were both still on the show. I had to fast forward through Stafford. Gina keeps me watching, I don’t go anywhere. Billy Miller is fine but I really like Burgess better. This is my opinion and I said I don’t have the connection to the previous actors that long time viewers have.

KateA, I stand corrected and I respect your opinion.

I’m Loving GT as “Phyllis”. The verdict is way out on JH as Nu Adam. BG is a terrible “Billy”, I FF through his scenes. JFP has complety slaughtered this show, she is the worst hack. Her initial statement when taking over was “I’m coming in with a scalpel to make slight necessary changes”. This witch has butchered our show with no remorse, unbelievable arrogance. I despise her for this. Please FIRE this whack job!

sorry folks but im not caring about nu-phyllis, nor nu billy recast for the same reasons…they are nice enough but they are not the character they’ve been cast to play…i know those of you who like nu-phyllis like her because of some other soaps shes been on but she aint phyllis to me…and i actually find the whole phyllis story line so totally unbelievable that i cant get into it…and seriously, will jack just man up and lose the gaping mouthed fish face? for crying out loud…just tell the truth!! i will wait and see about the body replacement for Hands Newman but im not sure about that recast….jfp seems determined to recast characters and then change them completely…i think we need to put the breaks on casting new characters while tptb waste characters who are already on the show, like devon for one, they have made he and hilary totally unlikeable and useless, i hate their story line and yet i used to like them both…just my four cents worth though…

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  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 as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
