When Miles Gaston Villanueva (Ex-Luca Santori) was wrapping up his run on The Young and the Restless, he was also appearing in a workshop production of a new play, God Looked Away, working alongside none other than Academy Award and two-time Tony winner Al Pacino and two-time Tony and Daytime Emmy winner,Judith Light (Ex-Karen, OLTL)!  In fact, On-Air On-Soaps interviewed Miles during his final rehearsals to get the skinny on his part and working with two of the most talented and beloved performers in the business.

Now came word on Monday, that God Looked Away will now be playing for a few weeks at the reknowed Pasadena Playhouse, in Pasadena, California in the next leg of the production of this new work.  The play written by Dotson Rader is about the life of playwright Tennessee Williams.   As told to us by Villanueva, “The story in the play gives you a peek at Tennessee Williams trying to mount one of his plays, and the struggles he goes through to produce, and write a play in his later years.”

Villanueva took to social media to announce the exciting news that tickets are available to see the production: “So. It’s official. Starting January 2017, I will be back on the big stage, starring opposite Al Pacino in a new play, GOD LOOKED AWAY, at the Pasadena Playhouse in LA. It is the next installment after our beautiful workshop production over the summer. I am over the moon. Al and the entire cast and team are magic.”

The show will have performances starting on February 8th and run through March 19, 2017.

So, if you are in the Southern California area will you try to see Miles, Al and Judith together on stage in this intriguing new work? Comment below.

Just have to say…Judith Light is a goddess. Wonderful all around.

Wow, what an opportunity for Miles. To me, Al Pacino is our greatest living American actor. He continually challenges himself and the last ten years (when contemporaries like Robert De Niro are just phoning in many of their performances) have allowed him to do the best work of his career. ANGELS IN AMERICA; PHIL SPECTOR; YOU DON’T KNOW JACK; DANNY COLLINS…all brilliant work. And Judith Light has redefined her career in the past few years as well. Miles is probably on cloud nine!

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
