Oh-oh!  Looks like more revenge-seeking villains may be inhabiting the Hamptons very soon! Casting news out of TV Line has that in the upcoming second half of the fourth season of ABC’s Revenge, look for Sons of Anarchy star, Tommy Flanagan to emerge on to the scene of the primetime drama!

According to the casting dish: ” Flanagan will play the powerful and dangerous Malcolm Black, a high-functioning psychopath with a long memory for those who have crossed him. Self-made, cold and calculating, he is relentless when it comes to protecting both his family and his fortune.”

The role of Malcolm is said to be a major recurring role, and fans can expect to see his arrival in 2015 in the eleventh episode of the season, the date of which is yet-to-be announced.

So who do you think crossed Malcolm on the canvas …  David Clarke (James Tupper) … Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) … Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann) or perhaps, Emily (Emily VanCamp)?  The list of possibilities is endless!  Comment below!

The show has become rather predictable and lackluster of late. Bringing on
Tommy Flanagan as Mr. Black is exactly what Revenge needs to get it’s
motor running. Only three episodes left of SOA and crying already !!!

Do you really think it’s predictable and lackluster? I think just the opposite. I think it’s been fantastic…I’m very curious about where David’s been and why he didn’t contact Amanda…I think the writers managed to take the initial concept of REVENGE after which Emily/Amanda had accomplished what she set out to do…spring from that others revenge. While I don’t know if it can match the inital grip it held on me…I really loved Emily with Daniel and the entire “feel” of the Hamptons…I also adored Aidan and miss him on the show. Conrad was a major player and thus a… Read more »

The Original concept created was Fresh, and kept interesting for 2 + seasons.
The backdrop and characters equally beautiful, seductive, deceptive…
How would Emily/Amanda continue to surprise and stun us, without alienating
us in her quest to avenge her father. After all one Victoria is enough on any show!
The show has taken some wrong turns as you mentioned Rebecca, Conrad
and Aidan being 2 of them… that has bled the show out since its stunning debut.
With Tommy’s entrance, I know my interest will be rekindled.

I’m not familiar with Tommy Flanagan. Never saw Sons of Anarchy but heard good things about it. If I like him I may just try to catch up to that show. As for Revenge…yes…I think it might possibly have a few good seasons left. Funny. I actually like Daniel; I always felt he was an innocent in Emily’s plan. All the viewer saw was a gorgeous, smart, successful guy who really loved her. I completely understand his resentment toward Emily/Amanda…wonder if they’re going to start calling her Amanda from now on…but I thought that conversation in the elevator said a… Read more »

It’s ironic ABC tried to rationalize dropping AMC and OLTL party because soaps were a dying breed. Well get ready nighttime audiences on just how bizarre the twists and turns in soaps can be.

Daytime soaps are stuck in the 20th century and have a PG rating..
They are slow moving and not even a ”damn you” is said in anger ..

The Prime Time soaps are a whole different world than Daytime soaps..

((ABC could not afford 3 soaps, it is more than crazy to even believe ABC could keep 3 soaps going, never going to happen, ever..

su0000… I know you love GH. So do I as you probably know. I think GH is bringing in a lot of intensity, heightened emotions, including rage, anger, hysteria…all conveyed through facial expressions, body language and dialog without swearing. It’s not that I’m against it…I just don’t think they need it…and I don’t think it makes for better drama. I remember that became a huge discussion with everyone weighing in on Prospect Park’s soaps. My opinion? They sucked. The “forbidden worlds of network” were thrown in just because they could. And all the cursing in the world couldn’t match the… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
