Casting news today via Soap Opera Uncensored has that The Bold and the Beautiful is looking for a leading lady type in her mid-40’s for a recurring role on the international hit soap opera!

And giving it a bit of intercontinental flare, according to the casting notice this woman is to be “Aussie/British, Artistic, Beautiful, Strong Business sense. Native accent.”

It sort of sounds like a younger Jackie M (Lesley-Anne Down) doesn’t it?

So now we ask you to put on your casting director hat and post who you think would be a good fit for the part, someone from daytime or primetime television, perhaps?  Let us know!

Eva isn’t Aussie or British. Plus, she’d probably return to Y&R is she were going to a soap again.

They could be going to a full hour. Y&R may be dropped to a half hour.

Well anything to get more NEW excitement into this show…. and now it looks as if Hope and Liam are getting back together….come on! D we really have to endure that once again??? I thought that story was over and dead….

Totally agree; frankly I would rather never see Hope or Liam again, but she’s more tolerable with Wyatt.

I could care less. Whoever they cast will only be used as another tool to prop up either Brooke or Hope or both.
This soap is a waste of time.

It must be a new character I assume…but she should have connections with someone on canvas such as knowing Ridge…HMMM? Maybe a past model who worked a Forrester which actually is Liam’s mom…HMMM? Maybe she isn’t dead you know soaps…let the fur fly between mama lionesses Quinn?!

You are a crude human being for saying this. You should be disgusted with yourself, continually posting Chaz in the casting. Have you no class?

I think Jamie Luner need to return to soaps!! If she’s not cast as the new Phyllis on Y&R, she needs to head to BOLD!!! She’s too sexy not to be on soaps!!!!!

I don’t know much about Aussie or British soaps, so I can’t really offer up any advice on who to cast. But I hope, whoever it is, that they’re able to act up to par with the rest of the cast.

I really miss Jackie and Nick, they were two of my favourite characters. Though their last year on the show was horrible in terms of writing, it was as if they were an afterthought for Brad Bell and that upset me, because Leslie-Anne Down and Jack Wagner are great actors. I’d love for Jackie, Nick, Bridget and Owen to return to the show.

I don’t know if a new role is what B&B needs right now, the cast is already pretty sizable. We already never see Marcus, Dayzee, Thomas, Danielle, rarely Justin and rarely Thorne.

If I were in charge of the show I would send both Brooke and Hope on journeys to find themselves, find out who they really are, and what they need to change about themselves. Journeys of self-discovery, similar to Maxie’s on GH. They take up way too much air time, and to be honest, both characters are (and have been for a long time) a complete mess. Brooke is back with Bill, and Hope is on the merry-go-round again with Liam and Wyatt. Terrible decisions for both ladies, but I guess it’s a case of like mother, like daughter. (Things should get interesting when Deacon arrives though!)

IMO It isn’t fair for a show with such talented actors and an ensemble cast to focus on one or two characters. Recently Brad Bell called Hope the “central character” of the show and I found it insulting to the other actors. I would love to see more Thorne, and as I said I would love the Marone family to return, and put Brooke on the backburnner for a little while, for a change.

I’ve always hoped the show would pick up the criminally unemployed Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda on ATWT) playing a business woman owning a fashion-related company (maybe shoes akin to Manolo Blahnik??). Hubbard can’t play campy the same way that Sally was but she is a hell of an actress and could fill the huge void left by Susan Flannery for a strong, older female to berate Brooke over her continuous sexual misconduct.

To turn up the camp factor, I’d give her a couple of loyal employees (similar to Darla and Saul were to Sally). I’d find some washed-up former tv actor to play one of them (maybe the gal who played Nellie Olsen on Little House on the Prairie? That woman seems like she has a good sense of comic timing.). Then, add a non-sexual but devoted male employee.

Top it off later with a couple of good looking kids for Hubbard (Russell Todd to play the son? Someone that Brooke can get her hooks into. Maybe Teri Conn to play the daughter?).

IDK. The show has vastly improved by moving away from the burned-out Taylor and introducing some new folks (especially the equally loony Quinn and Ally). However, I really think the show needs more. It needs some new “blood” who aren’t connected to the Forresters and Logans.

I’m a HUGE believer in sticking with your core families but, until recently, B&B has done it too much. At time, the show seems stale and a complete rehash of what we have seen for 20 years. I still can’t fathom why the heck the writers completely ignore Thorne Forrester and give him nothing to do while constantly giving us more Ridge and Brooke!!!

weren’t they casting a british sex kitten in her 20s recently? what happened to that? any one keep track of how many of these casting calls ACTUALLY come to fruition?

I’m late to the party, but I’d love to see Kelley Menighan Hensley. And then they could also bring in her wonderful hubby Jon – aka Dr. Meade – full-time. Win Win!!!

What does it matter? She will just be another prop for Brooke and Hope, as usual. Hope being the central character is a huge joke. And why cast new actors when they don’t use the ones they have?!

Just tired of Bill and Brooke and Wyatt! Could use an influx of story for Thorne . Wyatt is promoted far more than his value and the cheesy nature of either the story or acting makes it worse. Too much Brooke centric is destructive and the stories have suffered for it. Eric looks like a senile fool for doing her bidding all the time. Its insufferable. Brad Bell learned little from his father it would appear

Can’t wait for Wyatt’s girlfriend to show up. Bye bye Wyatt (from Hope). His “poor” momma is goingto go beserk! Can’t wait!

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
