Big news out of San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend involving former One Life to Live star and the former motion picture Superman, Brandon Routh (Ex-Seth Anderson, One Life). The actor will be making a comeback in the superhero role, but this time on television.  Brandon played the man of steel in the motion picture Superman Returns over 13 years ago.

Routh who presently stars on Legends of Tomorrow as Ray Palmer AKA The Atom will be donning the Superman cape along with Tyler Hoechlin in an Arroverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths. Both Routh and Hoechlin will appear as Superman but in “different time frames.  Crisis on Infinite Earths will take place over five episodes, three in December 2019 and two in January 2020.

During Arrow’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel, Brandon Routh revealed that he was wearing a shirt with the Kingdom Come Superman emblem, which means he will be playing the Superman from another universe.   As to what the story will be, it is reportedly based on Kingdom Come, a story that landed on the pages of the Justice Society of America, set far in the  future, when Superman has a bit long in the tooth, and is facing competition from a younger, more violent generation of superheroes.

Routh told EW: “It’s an opportunity for me to kind of say hello and goodbye to the character in a way I didn’t get to the first time.  Being a young individual of 24, 25, I thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to do this for years and make multiple movies.’ And that, of course, didn’t happen. I’m just very honored to be able to do this one last time.”

As for Routh’s time on One Life playing opposite Melissa Archer’s Natalie, from 2001-2002, his time in Llanview was cut short via a reported firing and was then replaced.  Guess Brandon has had the last laugh with this one going on to motion picture and primetime TV superhero roles.

Watch below when Routh revealed his upcoming man of steel turn at the Arrow panel at SDCC below.

Then, let us know, will you be checking out Brandon as Superman once again? Do you recall his time on One Life to Live when Seth was scheming with Natalie? Comment below.

    I most definitely remember his time on One Life to Live when he, as Seth, was involved in Natalie’s scheme to replace Jessica, Erin Torpey at the time, as Viki and Clint’s daughter and thus a Buchanan heir. Those were the days. I still miss One Life to Live every day!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations and much continued success to Brandon.

    I am sorry to say, I did not watch him on day time TV years ago. I did see him in “Superman Returns” and feel that he did a great job. Now as Ray Palmer/aka the Atom he has out-done himself! He is amazing in the role and I am looking forward to his return playing Superman this winter in Legends of Tomorrow. No pun intended! 😉

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
