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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Oh, Su…you just like Joe !!!! How dare you just like?????….LOL.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

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!

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
