One Lifes finale, last scene: Natalie arrives to her apartment and makes a shocking discovery-the babysister is found stabbed to death and Liam is missing! Cut to street scene: a blonde woman walking down the street with a small child by her side. The woman is singing: ‘Hush little baby dont say a word’ ect. The woman suddenly turns to face the camera, and she smiles wickedly at the audience…its Allison Perkins, and the child with her is Liam!!! She resumes walking with him and continues singing. The end of first season! Fade to black! Season two: the return of… Read more »

I do expect to see more of the cast taking other roles. Putting a halt to the show due to the lawsuit is not in the best interest of the show. More importantly, it’s definitely not in the best interest of the fans.

I agree. I predicted this would happen. The hiatus is not a smart idea. The actors need a paycheck. They are not going to just sit home waiting for OLTL to return. Once the show finally returns, they might have to get a whole new cast because many of the original cast members might be attached to other projects.

From day 1 PP gave all the cast the freedom to pressure other projects while under contract with them…
You will see others branching out if even for an episode on other shows if the opportunity comes their way..
Their online contracts are not like network tv soap contracts..

I was aware that they are allowed to pursue other projects. The issue is how long will the lawsuit take? PP is going head to head with Disney who can afford to make this difficult if they chose to by using legal tactics to delay a quick resolution to this lawsuit. Disney probably won’t though, but they could. Meanwhile, the cast members need to be paid and might sign on to long-term projects that would prevent them from taping when OLTL returns. I can’t see PP preventing them from landing long-term jobs on other soaps and TV shows when OLTL… Read more »

Good for Amber. Nothing against her, but I really didn’t like her character and wouldn’t mind if she wasn’t back, should OLTL return. That being said, I read an article that reminded me that all pioneers of different mediums fell flat on their faces when they started and those who followed learned form their mistakes and succeeded. Could PP be considered Pioneers in web-based soap operas? I wonder because I think, while some aspects of what they’re doing are different, many are the same as those who have come even before them. People like Crystal Chappell (who’s shooting a bazillion… Read more »

CW’s b& the beast is one of the most racially diverse tv shows and it’s quite good. It’s shocking that kristen kreuk wasn’t whitewashed and actually portrays a char who’s part Asian american! They even had her Asian american sister on an ep. Her boss is African american. The main villain is Indian american actor sendhil ramamurthy who is not only handsome but a very good actor best known for nbc’s heroes. It’s very diverse and quite well acted and entertaining for a sci fi tv show. They should continue more racial diversity on b&tb! While that other show abbreviated… Read more »

Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
