Summer SORASing at Y&R! Fenmore and Summer to become Teens!

Courtesy/IMDB.com

Courtesy/IMDB.com

Here we go again, ladies and gentlemen! It’s time for another major jump in time for those loveable kids on the soaps.  In an attempt to beef up their upcoming summer storylines, The Young and the Restless has put out casting calls to SORAS both Phyllis and Nick’s little girl, Summer and Lauren and Michael’s son, Fen!

Courtesy/IMDB

Here is what we know via Soap Opera Digest, “The show is seeking 18-year-olds to play 15/16-year-olds for both roles. Summer is described as a fun, feisty typical teen; Fen will be returning from boarding school and “adjustment will be an issue.”

Most recently Samantha Bailey and Robbie Tucker have been the child stars to play Summer and Fen.

So, since the show is going down this road, any casting recommendations you might want to suggest for who could play the teen Summer and Fenmore? Also, what do you think of the move to age the kids? Good for story? Bad idea? Let us know!

Why is it that every kid that grows up in the Baldwin clan has adjustment issues. Eden was a mess when she joined the family too. Also, now Summer is going to be quite close in age to Noah. Also, shouldn’t Noah be a bit older than both Abby and the incoming Kyle.

To my knowledge Noah is off the canvas . Because Joshua Morrow looks young I am not sure he is even 40 this is stupid leave well enough alone they have too many people on this show. And MAB please give Eric Braeden & Stephen Nichols new toupee’s they look awful!!!

I just checked Joshua Morrow is only 38! MAB is nuts and ruining this show! I will add this Jess Walton leaving for six months to be with a new grandbaby I am not buying it for one minute. It makes me ill what MAB has done she can’t write for grownups much less children.

jess walton posted on her face book page that she wanted time off for the birth of her new grand child – is that all a lie???

Jess Walton is certainly old enough to be a grandmother. I am not sure what your point is here other than that you may think she is too young. She is probably near 60

ethel

i know that jess is about 60 but you wrote ” i am not buying it for one minuet” did you mean that you don’t believe the reason for her 6 month leave is to be with her new grand baby? “

nope that was not me that wrote “i am not buying it for one minute” that was not me and i don’t see the post now.

Hey i checked him out on google, he has soap experience (ATWT) and looks exactly like the previous actor. If he hears of this casting call i completely see him winning the role.

Mick would be PERFECTION. I’ve missed him so much since ATWT.

He’s a very good actor, winning back-to-back Young Actors Awards in his category -for those who don’t remember him, he played Carly’s (Maura West) and Jack’s (Michael Parks) son on As The World Turns.

Y’all are SO right-he would be perfect!

If he talks to Maura, he won’t even try out. They use you for a couple of months and write you into a corner. He would be better off looking for prime-time or movie work. I agree he is good, but Y&R tends to use up known actors and spit them out…after they are done with you. They would be better off with an unknown…or rather the actor would be better off just getting some experience and moving on (if he isn’t written off first.)

How long B4 Faith is aged?

Why is this necessary? They don’t know what to do with Daniel, Eden, Noah, etc. Why add more to the mix?

David Larsson

Hasn’t Faith already been slightly aged?

gloria
Guest

Yes, Faith has totally been aged. Funny-one day she was her original self, then she was aged (a different actress-the current one) then I swear, there was a courtroom scene with Sharon & it was the original baby Faith for just that day! Did anyone else notice this? Then it was back to bigger older (current) Faith. Just wait, in a few months Lucy will be 8 or 9 & so will baby Jack, Moses too. If there is anything I hate about soaps it is the unnecessary aging of the kids. I think the babies are definitely cuter than… Read more »

They aged Faith right after the Christmas pageant last year. @ Gloria yes I do remember that. They have been “aging” kids forever on the show. Nick and Victoria are older than they should be. Kyle Jenkins Abbott and Abby Carlton should actually be the same age. I don’t know if anyone remembers back when Victor had a frozen sperm sample and Diane wanted it for herself (I think she was still married to Victor but he was going to divorce her)…anyway Ashely wound up with it …she always wanted to have Victors child since she had aborted his baby… Read more »

I meant, how long before Faith is aged to a teenager?

I guess Reed will stay a kid because he’s off screen mainly.

if this keeps up little moses & baby john abbott will be in pre-school by fall……………..

I guarantee Moses will be running around in a couple of months. They might keep baby John a baby a little longer to play out the whole ‘Victoria finally got her baby but will the birth mom take it back’ business.

Marj

If Victor and Adam keep going at Chelsea she is gonna take that baby back. I think I read somewhere that she may not be the child of Billy.

I would have like to see them grow up, but when are they going to to find out Summer is Jacks lil girl ?

Yeah. You just know they are going to go down that road some day. I mean Nick was the only one to see the DNA results.

I don’t know how they can pass off making Summer and Fen TEENS when Jack Abbott is supposedly only 46 and Genevieve Atkinson is supposedly only 33! Ha! Ha! Did anyone catch those ages on the marriage license this past week? What a joke!

That’s as bad as when there was that TV movie Sony had with Heather Locklear called “Flirting with 40.” It was more like 50. They must think we are stupid.

Tim
Guest

Christine, It’s funny that you mention Genevieve’s age. That just reminds me of when Cane came to town posing as a Chancellor. If you do the math, Cane should be roughly the same age as Phillip II, who is in his late 40’s. That is one reason the Cane/Lily pairing creeps me out so much.

I looked it up one day, something like Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome, so effing stupid & needless in most cases.

David Larsson
Guest

You know, when summer comes around in the UK, British soap writers still focus on adults and it’s actually quite successful. The US could take a lesson from this since I for one really have no desire to watch a bunch of teens be horny on my screen (which why I don’t watch B&B).

Also, how many times did Robbie Tucker actually appear as Fen? Like twice or something? Maybe three times.

Christine
Guest
Christine

That’s a great point, David. It isn’t like when I was growing up in the 70s and 80s.

The teens today are not watching the soaps. They are texting and going to the mall and things like that, or I suppose. My boys are just babies right now so I have NO idea what teens are doing, but they aren’t watching soaps – that I DO know.

ENOUGH already, Y&R. Stop rapidly aging the characters. Audiences are smarter that this b.s.

I beleive Jess Walton wants time off with the grandbaby but 6 months seems like a long time I guess I am trying to figure out why they have not written more of her character with Katherine etc though I do think Jeanne Cooper is a lot more frail then we realize I just miss my favorites and I think this aging of kids is a bit much all new faces with no acting experience.

Eddie Alderson (ex Matthew, OLTL) would be a really smart choice! Austin Williams has a lot of talent but he is just 15. (Imagine the idea of a 15 year old playing a 15 year old… crazy!) Then there is another OLTL guy… Andrew Trischitta. Maybe Dylan Patton who was Will Horton before Chandler. Drew Garrett (ex Chad GH) might be a little too old but could be an option. I agree in liking the idea of Mick Hazen too.

Mo
Guest

They want 18 year olds so they don’t have to worry about laws regarding minors and minors would have to go to school. Don’t blame them.

Who is going to raise these kids. There sorry parents never had the time when they were suppose to be young.

Delia has already been aged. I hope they let her stay a little kid for a while. Billy is so cute with her!

TODAY: B&B’s Sean Kanan Visits ‘The Talk’

Friday on CBS’ The Talk, Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe, The Bold and the Beautiful) is one of the afternoon series special guests, and will discuss and preview the continuation of the crossover story arc that finds Deacon in drama with Y&R and Genoa City’s Nikki Newman.

Next week, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) comes to B&B as she tries to get dirt on Diane (Susan Walters) and wastes no time in telling Deacon he has to help her with her revenge plot.  After all, Deacon helped frame Nikki to look like she murdered Diane many years ago.

Kanan weighed-in on Deacon’s motives in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, sharing: “He actually wants to help Nikki.  Deep down, I think Deacon is more of a good person than a bad person.  He’s a guy who wants to do the right thing be he’s got issues.”

Tune in today for The Talk at 2pm ET / 1pm PT on CBS and Paramount Plus as Kanan reveals more of what’s to come with the show co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, Sheryl Underwood and Natalie Morales.

In addition, Morales may have a thing or two to add to Kanan’s visit, since she has been making appearances on Y&R playing ace reporter, Talia Morgan, who has been investigating Diane Jenkins.

Looking forward to seeing Sean on ‘The Talk’? Will you be watching next week for the crossover to continue with Sean and Melody Thomas Scott in scenes on B&B? Comment below.

Elizabeth Gillies First Post-‘Dynasty’ Role Revealed; GH Alum Bryan Craig Also In Cast

Now that the CW’s Dynasty has come to its conclusion after five seasons, many have wondered what series star Elizabeth Gillies (ex-Fallon) will be seen in next.  Part of the answer was revealed today in casting news via Deadline.

Gillies will star and is the co-executive producer of a new Tubi film called Spread.  In it, Liz will take on the role of  ambitious and aspiring journalist, who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king played by Harvey Keitel.  The character must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed.

Spread is written by Buffy Charlet, who is another of the films Co-EP’s, and is inspired by Charlet’s real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose in the ranks to become an editor.

The film also stars two-time Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig (ex-General Hospital, Good Trouble).

Look for Spread to drop on Tubi in 2023.

So, intrigued to see Liz and Bryan in Tubi’s new film, ‘Spread’? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
