The casting of Crystal Chappell’s new web series Beacon Hill just keeps getting more intriguing and more intriguing! This afternoon, Chappell announced that daytime favorite, Ricky Paull Goldin (Jesse, B&B, Ex-Jake, AMC, EX-Gus, GL) has been added to the cast in the role of Andrew Miller …  and that’s not all! Ricky is also coming on board as one of the producers of the new web series!

So here is the lowdown on Ricky’s new role of Andrew Miller, according to the Beacon Hill website, “Katherine’s chief of staff is addicted to power. His ambition and underhanded actions may harm Katherine’s upcoming campaign and ruin any chance she may have to reconnect with Sara.”  And as previously reported, Katherine will be played by the one and only Sarah Brown!

Ricky received an onslaught of well-wishes from fans, followers, new and old castmates on Twitter when the news was released of his addition to Beacon Hill.   Goldin tweeted after the fervor, “Thanx 4 all the kind tweets. Made my day.xo Very excited about @BeaconHillWeb & working with amazing cast & crew. “

So what do you think of Ricky Paull joining Crystal Chappell, Louise Sorel, Sarah Brown and God knows who else is the political intrigue and romance of Beacon Hill?   Let us know!

In my view,Sarah Brown is one of those inexplicably praised and highly over-rated actresses who reap undeserved acclaim from a few while turning the vast majority off.Yet,she keeps getting hired on one soap after another.

Hey Robert. I very much agree with you. However…it is not so much the fault of the actress as the fault of the writers and producers. With each soap she is hired on, people talk about what a revelation and how brilliant she was as Carly. But people are forgetting…that initial run for her was almost soap nirvana as ALL the elements aligned…a killer storyline rooted in history, spectacular slow=build writing that enveloped much of the cast, the use of core characters and favvourites, and sensational acting from everyone involved. Since then, however, soaps have repeatedly tried to hire her… Read more »

Not sure why PP has not signed him up. I liked him on AMC but he is what OLTL needs. OLTL has lost several male actors that could be recast with Ricky. Ricky has the look that the missing OLTL actors had. Just sayin’.

I am SO shocked!! A big daytime star who went to Bold and Beautiful had his talent wasted and squandered in a thankless throwaway role?????????? This must be a first!

I would like to see if Chappell is capable of producing a quality drama about straight people.

She can do anything in my book. I have watched her for years and she is one of the BEST!!!!!

Oh, JEM, that’s funny. Did you intend to be funny? Scripted media is more often than not geared towards straight people. And Chappell’s dramas have plenty of “straight” storylines.

Super happy that this very talented guy is joining this series. I am very excited to see this show.

P.S. Wow, there are some really negative people in this world 🙂 As my Mom always said, if you don’t have anything nice to say… don’t post it to the internet.

Online is the way to go today. Bold and the Beautiful doesn’t know what to do with great actors, but hire them with great fanfare, then put them on the back burner. Brad Bell doesn’t have his father” s vision of seeing a great actor and building story around them.

Ricky played a great role on AMC with Amanda and I was hoping he would return but instead found himself on the B&B playing a miniscule part. Glad he is returning for this new web series as he is worth waiting for.

Couldn’t be happier RPG has signed on for this new web series. Especially interested that he’ll also be producing. Stroke of genius on Crystal Chapell’s part. Can’t wait for this and love the idea that RPG will not be playing a romantic hero this time round. Love his edgier side, as when how portrayed early era Gus.

Is he coming back to B&B????? Or was that cameo it? A WASTE if so!

Thank goodness Ricky is not some stuck up actor who thinks he’s above making cameo appearances. I enjoyed his little stint on the B&B and I hope he makes more cameo appearances on the B&B, his humbleness is very appealing.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
