Could he be a Rick recast? He does look like Justin Torkildsen, the actor that portrayed Rick and the actor paired the most w/ Frantz. Kyle Lowder needs to be fired from B&B and take acting lessons from his wife Ari Zucker, who’s actually a decent actress compared to Lowder. Or maybe he’s a Thomas recast? Online rumors say 1 of Ridge and Tay’s children gets killed off yet again. They shouldn’t kill off any more of Tay’s children. They should kill off 1 of Brooke’s children, and that should be Rick since Kyle Lowder has destroyed the character. Also, Brooke has so many spare children lying around: Bridget the slutty mess, good virgin Hope, sure to have issues as a teenager Jack and sure to be Brooke’s favorite Ridge Junior. They don’t need Lowder and they can kill off Rick. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if Clifton was Little Eric/Deacon?! LOL! The character should after all be in his mid 20s since he’s older than teenybopper Hope and early 20s Steffy. But Frantz would most likely have a meltdown if she portrayed the mother of someone in his mid 20s and Brad bell wouldn’t want her to seem older. LOL!

He’s suppose to play a guy naed Liam Cooper so he’s obviusly not playing Rick, Thomas, Eric Sharpe or any other actor already on the show or ex character.
I think it would be cruel to kill of Taylor’s or Brooke’s children, Taylor has already lost 1 child and Brooke lost her brother 2 years ago and recently her mother and she has already lost children thru miscarriages. I think Kyle Lowder is a great actor and he has great chemistry with KKL, Brooke is really close to Rick and always has been, I think it’d destroy her to lose him. I am very excited to see Scott Clifton in this new role though.

When I wrote that, Michael fairman did not update his article yet. When Fairman originally wrote this article, no details of the character’s name were released yet. Clifton will last on B&B if his character is paired w/ Amber since Brad bell can only write for Amber.

Bottomchef,

You are an idiot! Kyle Lowder is great and as for the character of Scott Clifton…..he is playing a brand new character that was created for him……Open your eyes and read! Liam Cooper!!!!

Tallulah, you’re the idiot! Open your eyes and read. Michael fairman did not update this entry when I first wrote. The first article did not specify Clifton’s character’s name. Why don’t you read my reply to Merima. And Kyle Lowder is and always will be a crappy actor and his “acting” will forever live in infamy in Talk Soup. LOL!

The internet is obviously a place for speaking your mind frankly. However, it’s disappointing that MF on air on soaps allows people to write insults and does not publish rebuttals to those insults. It was the same thing during the kish mess. My opinions abt the kish actors whining and bitterness was very unpopular on this board. Yet no one could refute the logic of my arguments regarding their firings. People were personally attacking me and calling me names, w/c is fine. I don’t care abt someone calling me names when I don’t even know these people personally. However, if you can dish it then you should be able to take it. Yet MF on air on soaps has yet again not published my rebuttal to Tallulah. I wrote that Tallulah is an idiot (her choice of words). I wrote that Tallulah should open her eyes (her choice of words). And I explained to idiotic Tallulah that I wrote abt Clifton before any info on his character was released and before this article was updated. Yet it was not published. So does this mean on air on soaps is biased w/ Frantz/Amber like they were biased w/ kish actors? Anyways, more reasons to quit soaps. And people are perplexed as to why ratings are dwindling. The storylines are bad and the soap press are not objective.

That’s ok. It’s your board so what you say, goes. I’m glad (for lack of a more precise word) that what you wrote is directed at the entire board, even if it’s in reply to my comment. Things were much worse during the kish brouhaha. Being in entertainment, it makes people fair game, and if people think the critiques of soap actors, writers, exec producers, directors, shows, TPTB, etc are harsh here, they should read the other boards, w/c are a lot more intense.

I really hope he isn’t paired with Amber, I don’t even want to see her on B&B. I wish they’d just kill that idiot off.

Chanda: majority of the Forresters hated Amber when she left town. Ridge, Brooke, Stephanie, Bridget, Thomas and Rick hated her for trapping Ridge and Bridget in a pit at Big Bear and taping their icky kiss. Yes that storyline actually happened and they even went on a remote for that crap. So, it would actually be realistic if a murder mystery happened around Amber’s onscreen, there’s no way she can be revived, hallelujah death. They could even make Taylor the killer. Tay could have hit the booze again and blamed Amber for Tay’s second “death” and separation from Ridge and her children since Amber was the reason Sheila (who “killed” tay) meddled w/ the Forresters again. Or maybe it would be great if they referenced history on B&B. This actress who I think got preggers w/ Sean Kanan’s baby portaryed this scheming, bad girl character named Carmen. Amber killed Carmen in self-defense when she tried to drop Lil’ Eric from this roof. Anyway, it would be great if Liam was actually Carmen’s ex bf who goes to L.A. to avenge Carmen by killing Amber. However this is B&B. They rewrite history and can’t even keep track of what characters say or do in an episode, so longterm continuity is not to be expected from the dimwitted writers.

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
