Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful have been curious on the latest casting call for the CBS daytime drama series.

According to Soap Opera Digest the show is looking to fill the contract role of “Alisha”.

So, just who is “Alisha”?  The latest updated casting breakdown says they are looking for an “18-21 year-old who is Hispanic or Middle Eastern, sexy, Midwestern, unsophisticated and beautiful. ”

This breakdown was updated from the original, which sounded a lot like a recast for Reign Edwards role as Nicole Avant.  B&B casting directors are now saying to not submit talent for the earlier casting call which read:  “African-American female, 18-21 years old who is described as: assertive, sexy, Midwestern, unsophisticated and beautiful.”

The role is set to begin to tape in October.  Put on your casting director hats!  Which young actress do you think fills the requirements for the role?  Who can bring  it to BOLD?  Anyone from primetime or daytime television you have liked in roles, previously?  Let us know in the comment section below!

The way that the description was written, something tells me that Reign Edwards will be replaced by a new actress. Who that new actress is, I have no idea as I do not know any African-American actresses in that age range to say the least. Any ideas ladies and gents?

Who cares? The character will be gone in a year anyway.

Did I miss something? Is Reign Edwards leaving the role? I do not see why that needs to happen.

Nothing is wrong with Reign. The actress is fine. The storyline is going nowhere though.

I think she appears too young…the kiss with Thomas was “uncomfortable” to me…

This casting notice is all over the place as Middle Eastern and Midwestern (in terms of generic actress look) are completely different!

I think Samantha Boscarino might be a good fit! I would love to see her on B&B

I love how diverse the cast of B&B in terms of LGBT characters & the different ethnicities and nationalities on the show. You have the four full time African-American characters one being a transgender character and than obviously Ashleigh Brewer being the token Australian on the show and a new bisexual character coming on soon and now there is casting call for a Hispanic character. I love this. So long people complained about the lack of diversy and no LGBT characters. I’m glad that it seems like with this change it has killed all the gossip that Nicole was maybe being recast, I like Reign in the role so I don’t want to see a change of actress.

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.
