Another familiar face from daytime has joined the ever-growing and ever-intriguing cast of Tainted Dreams! Today, popular Veteran One Life to Live (“Hank Gannon”) and The Young and the Restless (“Nathan Hastings”) star Nathan Purdee has signed on to play “Ethan Washington,” a network President of Daytime TV in the new web series from NYC Brand Productions.

According to series creator and executive producer, Sonia Blangiardo, “I needed someone with gravitas and experience playing strong, uber-confident men, and Nathan Purdee was at the top of my list. We are very fortunate to have Nathan join our cast.”

Blangiardo goes on to say, “The character of ‘Ethan Washington’ is overconfident, never in doubt, a real force to be reckoned with, feared by other executives, actors, and crew.”

No stranger to playing powerful, tough men in film, television and theatre, Nathan Purdee most recently appeared as a Congressman in Netflix’s megahit House of Cards.   Purdee is best known to soap fans as “Hank Gannon,” the no-nonsense Llanview District Attorney on One Life to Live from 1992-2003. Prior to that, Purdee played reformed mobster turned private investigator “Nathan Hastings, Sr.” on The Young and the Restless from 1984-1992.   

Tainted Dreams continues filming over the next week and half in and around New York City.

So, what do you think about Sonia’s choice of Nathan Purdee for the role of Ethan Washington?  Is your interest piqued for Tainted Dreams?

With all the talent coming to Tainted Dreams, I hope they can afford all of the actors! Keep them coming but don’t disappoint us by starting a new series then have it taken away. Been through that with AMC and OLTL and the void was painful. I am wondering why AMC and OLTL is ending their first season already. I wish Michael that you would get the answers for us and also find out when the second season starts. Michael, do you even read for yourself what people write in about? I don’t see any responses you might have if you do. Talk to the fans.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
