Fans got their first birds-eye view of just how CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful became the first U.S. television show back in production during the coronavirus pandemic by figuring a way to shoot under the health guidelines and protocols presented to the TV and film industry.

In an exclusive on Thursday night’s edition of Access Hollywood, the news magazine show went behind-the-scenes to look at the filming of some of  some scenes which included the use of mannequins, life-size dolls, and a secret kissing cameo from Denise Richards’ (Shauna) real-life husband Aaron Phypers.

These scenes aired this week on B&B, which showed how Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and Denise Richards had their exchange created with the help of mannequins, while Thorsten also had a scene with Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as his daughter, Steffy, when Steffy was in the hospital recovering from injuries sustained in a a motorcycle accident/crash. In these scenes, you see just how Thorsten had to act opposite the infamous blown-up doll!

Interviewed for the segment was Richards who explained to ‘Access’ just how they have made the mannequin magic happen to kick-start the show back into production during these unprecedented times.

Watch B&B on ‘Access’ below.  Then, let us know what you thought when you watched how the cast was acting opposite blow-up dolls ans mannequins to get their scenes done via the comment section below.

B&B is so lame for not updating the opening sequence.

Brad has done that for years I had to give up at the end of last year on the soap I got so frustrated when people were just dropped from the canvas no explanation at all just like they disappeared into thin air.

I refuse to watch any new episodes until they write Covid 19 into the stories. They are just doing a disservice by not addressing this important issue that is a part of our lives. They can’t ignore the subject forever.

We’re living it. Why do we want COVID in the soaps? And then what could they do? Just show the families quarantining at home? That would be boring.

On December 3rd, the latest installment dropped featuring former Ugly Betty star Michael Urie who is featured in the cast in the role of Bobby.

 

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.

You can watch Urie do his thing in the role of Bobby in this teaser released on social media below.

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
