Another piece of big casting news from the hit ABC series, Revenge TV Line confirmed that Jennifer Jason Leigh has nabbed the role of Emily VanCamp’s (Emily Thorne) MIA mom in the sudsy nighttime series.   In story, the Clarke family’s presumed dead matriarch will be a recurring role early into season two!

“This character is going to have some deep psychological issues,” Revenge creator Mike Kelley revealed several months ago.   He want on to say, “So we’re going to need somebody that can play volatile and dangerous; all of the scariest parts of Emily’s personality are going to be present and apparent and a little bit out of control in her mother.  But at the same time, what works so great for Emily is that sweet façade, so this woman needs to feel like she’s got potential for kindness. You look at her and you don’t know that she’s as damaged as she is inside. But you’ll quickly learn that this is a very dangerous person.”

Leigh is currently recurring on the final season of Weeds‘ playing Mary Louise Parker’s older sister.   So what do you think about the casting of Jennifer Jason Leigh as Emily VanCamp’s on-screen mom?  Thumbs up? Or, thumbs down?  Let us know your preliminary thoughts.

Good Actress.

I regard her, as an independant… character… fearless. Actress… who, losses herself in all her roles. She takes over, whomever, she plays out. She’s a scene stealer.

ie: Miami Blues – w/Alec Baldwin
Rush – w/Jason Patric
Dolores Claiborne – w/Kathy Bates
A thousand Acres – w/Jessica Lange and Michelle Pfieffer.

I hope, Jennifer and Madeleine Stowe have meaty encounters….

I don’t know anything about her. I thought maybe she’s too young, but she’s 50, so the age is right. I’ll reserve judgement until she has a chance to get into the role. Can’t wait until REVENGE is back!

I give it a thumbs up!!! She’d be great playing that part. I remember her in “Single White Female” movie, which was good. Also, she was in the movie with Tim Matheson called “Buried Alive” on TV. I liked that movie, which she cheated on Tim Matheson with her co worker and got buried alive at the end; and she was in the TV movie a long time ago, about a young high school student who got to be a cheerleader and her parents did not praise her, or acknowledge her, or wasn’t proud of her (reminds me kind of… Read more »

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
