Thad Luckinbill Returns To Y&R As J. T. Hellstrom!

Courtesy/CBS

The Young and the Restless is bringing back one of their fan favorite leading men in Thad Luckinbill!

Luckinbill will reprise his role of J.T. Hellstrom beginning with the December 12th episode of the CBS Daytime drama series.

J. T. is Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) ex-hubby and the bio-dad of Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu).  Just what will happen when he is back on the canvas? Luckinbill was last seen on the soap in November 2010.

In a new promo released on social media today, Y&R confirmed the rumors that Thad is indeed coming back to Genoa City. And in the voice-over for this well-done video teaser, you hear Luckinbill’s stating:“Sometimes when you leave, you realize that you’re not done with what you left behind.“

Watch the promo after the jump! Then let us know if you are excited about the return of Thad as J.T. in the comment section below!

Vicitora will put sex all over him and I hope he shuts her down ..

Well Friday they kissed. Maybe they think if they act together it could fix their marriage.
How else could they kiss on Friday when in real life they are getting divorced.
Anybody heard any scoop on how they can act together in a romance??

Celia

YESSSSS!!

Rhonda

Hell ya, I’m excited!
And Victoria needs him as her next love interest and Reed needs his father.
Good news all around, be interested to see him interact with the Jason Thompson’s Billy

Since my favourite hottie Steve burton left Y&R I have only been watching bits and pieces. Thad is still looking pretty fine, I might have to pay more attention again.

I do truly hope they use him for the right reasons I have noticed mal young has an obsession with JT like Phelps had for Burton which we endured for five years now he is back over at GH pulling the same crap!

Should be interesting. If he coming back for Victoria, then it will be very interesting, since the actor and Amelia Heinlie are divorced.

J.T. should have been back a long time ago.

If only colleen were still alive..her and JT were adorable and sweet together. imo they were the last teen couple to have any longterm potential. …then MAB had to go and kill the Carltons off one by one

Killing Colleen was a huge mistake!!!!

Hope he is coming to town with the purpose of taking Reed elsewhere.

vinee…oh, yes. To me, JT has always been a WAY BETTER PARENT to Reed than that annoying and wishy-washy Victoria…PERIOD!!!!!

Celia

LOL. Love your humor, vinee.

Reed and his guitar. He doesn’t seem to have lessons with Tessa anymore. They kinda dropped that storyline.

How about to the barber shop!

I’ve been literally been waiting for this since Reed came back on the scene. This is awesome!

diane

From what I’ve read, he’s done very well after leaving Y&R. Can’t imagine why he would want to come back to the daily grind of a soap. Might be interesting, but then with the crazy writing who knows.

Mo

I’m surprised to hear he’s returning too as I thought he had a successful career as a producer. Didn’t he produce “LaLa Land”? Or his company.

diane

I do remember seeing his name on a very successful movie. Can’t remember which one, but I’m sure he made a lot of money off of it. Can’t be easy to be working with the ex wife either…lol

Helen

Cannot wait!

Judith

It would be great to see the JT character come back. He and Victoria were always one of my favorite couples.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Might this mean the end of J.T. and Mac? I wouldn’t be surprised if that were true, unless they’re recasting Mac, too?

Soaphound
Soaphound

I think it’s a good move. I always hated the way JT treated Kevin but he was otherwise okay. Plus he has all that nice blonde hair and winsome smile. Victoria could do worse. She has done worse. And I don’t like Jason Thompson’s Billy with Victoria anyway, so this will be a welcome diversion.

Mark Y

Ok, what is the deal with J.T.? He was with Victoria? Colleen? And Mac who? I love it when soaps respect their history. Why is JT’s an important return?

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

GREAT NEWS!!!!

Also, I remember the sweet way Kathryn Chancellor would say, “J.T.”

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…yeah, Brother…I remember that, too. Yep.

Later, Brother.

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Thanks, jaybird369! I also now realize I misspelled the iconic character’s name: it is “Katherine!” I hope I’m not kicked off these boards for my faux pas… 🙂

Celia
Celia

Yes, James….how true! And, how I miss Katherine! The other character for whom I have been awaiting forever is, Mackenzie, the original ( Ashley Bashioum)…. don’t you agree, my friend? LOL.
Seriously—-nostalgia is both balming for the soul, and at the same time, sooo very heartrending. Melancholy feeling!!
Then, again, James, I’m too much of a romantic.

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Thank you, Celia! I think all fans of Y&R who knew Jeanne Cooper in the role miss the long-term character terribly. I love your idea of bringing back Ashley Bashioum as Mackenzie.

Nostalgia is often my middle name…

You, my Friend, being a romantic is a definite plus!

jaybird369
jaybird369

Celia…DEFINITELY!!!!! Now that J.T. is coming back to the Y&R canvas, Mackenzie needs to follow him back to Genoa City ASAP!!!!! Oh…and if Ashley Bashioum (the first and original Mackenzie) is unavailable (or whatever), I’ll gladly accept Clementine Ford (Mackenzie #2) in the role. As for the other 2 ‘Mackenzies’…Kelly Kruger and Rachel Kinsey…NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!

Celia…later, my friend.

Celia
Celia

@Ron.
Hey, Ron,
Thak you….
I like it….JT and Phyllis. That would be so “delicious”, yeees!!!! And, it would precipitate Victoria delving within herself, facing the fact she’s still in love with her ex ( and in real life, too, LOL), just as you predict/presume….hmmmm…trouble brewing, Ron!!

jaybird369
jaybird369

James…you’re welcome, Brother. Oh…as always, I LOVE the smiley face…lol.

Later, Brother.

Celia
Celia

You bet, Jay….I hope against all hope that Mackenzie will return and oust/unseat the illegitimate heir to the Chancellor throne, as it were.
Why Devon and not Mackenzie, Jay, my friend?? Having known the strong relationship between Katherine and her granddaughter, I was shocked when the inheritance went to Devon. I always smelled a rat…..Katherine would have never done that of her own free will. I mean, everything to Devon?? No way!!
It sounds more and more like the shady deal Graham has going with Dina. Go figure….what a travesty!!
If TPTB had any sense of righteousness, they would right this wrong, and bring Mac back to claim what’s hers.

Ron
Ron

Agree wholeheartedly– Ashley (MAC) was the first and best… and as Celia pointed out, she should be the rightful heir to the Chancellor estate. How delicious it would be to have that fight with Jill. And, she’s the best bet for Billy, was from the beginning and still is.

As for JT– turn around is fair play: JT will fall for Phyllis, just when Victoria (dip-stick she is) realizes she’s in love with JT.

It would be great if J.T. Returned to bring Reed’s bills back that he left in DC when he ran away to GC. The actor portrays Reed with as much excitement as I get when I discover I finished Oreo cookies two days early and left the empty box in the cupboard.

Reed is a real bore with zero chemistry with anyone.

But J.T. back to make Billy struggle is gonna be AWESOME!!

jaybird369
jaybird369

Amelia Heinle and Thad Luckinbill inside the same CBS Studio (or whatever). This is gonna get very, very ‘interesting’…lol.

Hey…just saying……….

K/kay

AH welcomed him back showin a picture of them at the beach with their kids. I do not think MY would bring him back if he thought their was going to be a problem they are also both adults .

Mo

Is he back long term? Is Mac returning with him? What about his kids with Mac? Wonder what brings him to town. Maybe to take on Cane. LOL

Celia
Celia

I would looove that, Mo. ….no kidding!!!! Cane is a waste.

Chrystie-Delancey
Chrystie-Delancey

I am surprised he needs to do this after the success he and his brother had with La La Land.

I hope they play this card correctly. Didn’t he and Mac have a child? Where is she?

Chrystie-Delancey
Chrystie-Delancey

Of all the returns, I would want Michael Graziadei back! He had such great chemistry with Christel Khalil. Cane is a bore. He needs Amber back to give him some life or to play his evil twin.

Totes agree! 🙂

Wow, I didn’t know that! I noticed that he was in a recent firefighter movie with Josh Brolin and Mile Teller, but I didn’t realize that he produced it, too. He executive produced La la Land, and several other A-list-starring movies.

Elaine Oxford

How long will Thad Lunckinbill be on the Young and the Restless? What time frame is his contract? I realize from his video that he has a lot of other interests. He is by far the hottest actor on all the soaps.
Love watching him with his ex-wife Amelie Heinle!

Love that he is back always liked him. So sorry about his real life divorce.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”

Luckinbill’s Black Label Media recently produced the war movie, 12 Strong in which he co-stared, while he was also one of the producers on the hit movie, La La Land.

Intrigued to see how Postscript turns out? Wish Thad would return as. J. T to Y&R for a another stint? Comment below.
