Last evening, On-Air On-Soaps spoke with The Bay executive producer Gregori Martin, who informed us of new casting changes and additions to upcoming episodes/chapters of his web series with some very familiar faces from daytime!

Chief among them is none other than former The Bold and the Beautiful star, Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge), who will play the new role of  former D.A. John Blackwell.  Meanwhile, Judi Evans (Adrienne, DAYS) will portray his wife,  Katherine.  They are the parents of Damien Blackwell played by Erik Fellows, who come to Bay City with a secret agenda against the Garrett clan!

B&B’s returning Sean Kanan (Deacon) is also on board, and will replace Brody Hutzler (Ex-Patrick, DAYS) in the role of Press Secretary Kenneth Allen.  And Patrick Darbo (Ex-Nancy, DAYS) will play a “GH Ruby Anderson type” as Mickey, who runs a small eatery called “Patrick’s Roadhouse”.

The Bay will continue principal photography beginning later this week featuring some of these new cast members with new episodes streaming in May.

What do you think of the casting additions to The Bay? Let us know!

I’m happy for Sean Kanan, as the writers did a terrible job writing for AJ Quartermaine this time around, so Sean decided to leave and head over to the Bold and the Beautiful. I’m happy for all of the daytime actors who are also working on The Bay. Good luck, everyone.

It is true that AJ was always written badly but I thought Sean Kean was going to Bold and the Beautiful. I wonder if he can do both.

I’m sick of the sour grapes that Ron Moss has for the Bold & the Beautiful. The guy didn’t like the contract and left PERIOD! Why can’t he let it be. I love the new Ridge and I really wish Ron Moss would just go play his music and leave the soap HE LEFT alone.

I love the new Ridge also but must admit as a new viewer to B&B, I am appalled at how all of the characters have inner bread. It is hilarious and often sickening. I recall seeing previews of B&B when Ron Moss was on the soap. It seems that there was a mass exit from B&B but they have done well with carrying on.

In Salem and Days of our Lives, E! chats with series staples: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), then Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John).  Deidre reveals “possession will be on my tombstone” in terms of Marlena’s most infamous story of all-time when the good doc was possessed by Satan, while the beloved duo discuss why daytime is the best job to have.  Alfonso talks on the history of her character sharing: “I am going to hold near and dear to my heart the beginnings of Hope.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.
