This is going to be so good…and with new writer Susan Banks on board, I think things might turn around a bit for this show.

Love this actor, especially on GH and as another famous Susan Banks would say, he’s a bad,bad,bad man!

A great actor. Excelled on both DH and GH.

The character assassination of Paul Hornsby was second only to that of Rick Webber’s in GH history. Neither was the ultimate bad guy they twisted them into at their respective demises.

You are absolutely right about both Paul and Rick. It’s great to see Richard again, I hope the Y&R writers do him justice, he was amazing on GH and is a fantastic actor. I always found myself cheering for him.

yup– I’m going to like the Burgi man..
((ahaa the Burgi man- get it? ahaa!))
I’m sure I will be cheering him to kick some Newman arse!
And– no way is the child Kyles, nope.
He is in no way ready to be a daddy, he will be kept single
and childless for some time to come..
The overly brain-dead Abby baby story wreaks of stupid.
nuff of that baby stuff..

Finally some good news on the y n r front!
A good looking mature actor! Hopefully he can makes move on Newman and Jabot since both empires are missing that mature adult vibe. With only Summer, Kyle and Victoria holding down these positions it really lacks the bustle of times gone by when those floors were flooded with all the usual characters, Jill, Brad, Neil, Ryan , Ash, John, Jack etc…sigh
Also add a promising new writer Susan banks and I
hope to read Josh Griffith fired soon! Fingers crossed.

Fantastic casting grab! Looking forward to Y&R improving with these new additions. And please find a strong and sexy 60 year old for Jack! I continue to wish for Beth Chamberlain, but she lives on the East Coast.

This is exciting news. Locke will eat Kyle for breakfast and Jack for lunch.

Too bad he’s married. He’d be a good catch for Victoria and then she could stop running after Billy. I don’t think he’s too old, compared to the sixties Jack with the thirty yr. old Sally. Gee, good thing Kyle doesn’t take after his dad, he’d be chasing Faith.

He was so good on GH! Great to see him coming to Y&R. I hope he shakes up both the Newmans and the Abbotts. Put “Vyle” in his place and wipe that smirk off his face!

Love Richard Burgi, he’s an excellent actor and he’s extremely handsome. He’s the perfect person to go up against Victor Newman, fearlessly. I hope he stays on Y & R permanently. His character is the perfect “kick” the soap needed to add great spice and variety and intelligence.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.
