Daytime Emmy winner Obba Babatunde’, not only plays The Bold and the Beautiful’s Julius Avant with such grativas, but he is now pulling double-duty where those who know the immense talent of this man are getting to see him on stage in a musical production of Five Guys Named Moe!

Obba is no stranger to musicals having created the role of C.C. White in the original company of the Broadway smash, Dreamgirls, and so many other countless roles.

In Five Guys Named Moe, this Tony Award-nominated musical, written by Clarke Peters, is set to music by the legendary Louis Jordan. It tells the story about the heroic Nomax (Babatunde’) – he’s broke, his lovely Lorraine left him and he’s listening to the radio at 4:45 in the morning. Out of the radio, five guys named Moe appear and encourage Nomax to turn his life around. It’s a wonderful performance by Obba in his element.

The musical is directed by Keith Young with musical direction by Abdul Hamid Royal, and plays now through June 11, 2017 at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, 4718 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles, 90016.

On hand on opening night on Saturday were Obba’s B&B castmates including: Reign Edwards (Nicole), Rome Flynn (Zende), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter), Anthony Turpel (R. J.), as well as General Hospital’s Jackie Zeman (Bobbie) and Y&R’s Kate Linder (Esther), and more.

Alison Sweeney Reveals She Is Making A Return To DAYS In 2020

Looks like Sami Brady will be back in action on NBC’s Days of our Lives later in the New Year, according to Alison Sweeney, Sami’s portrayer.

During a visit on Friday to the set of Hallmark Channel’s morning talker Home & Family, to promote her upcoming holiday film for the network entitled, Time For You To Come Home For Christmas, Sweeney chatted it up with hosts Cameron Mathison and Debbie Matenopoulos.

During her segment, Alison revealed “Sami is back, causing some trouble.”  But she was quick to note that it will be awhile before she is seen on-air clarifying “My scenes are not going to air until next Summer, next August.”

Sweeney promised the viewers and DAYS fans that there was great stuff coming up with her visit.  And if Sweeney’s last few returns are any indication, whatever is cooking in and out of Salem that may bring her back on to the canvas, we know it will be juicy, because when Sami is around the pot gets stirred!

So, excited to hear Alison will be back on your DAYS screens in 2020? Comment below.

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
