I must have missed some news on the status of Marcus and Daisy. They’re not in the opening credits. Have they been placed on recurring status?

I love thorsten kaye, but this is a bad recast. I’m sorry, but he is not ridge. bad mistake. they should have hired grant alexander ex philip guiding light. he would have been a better ridge forrester. thorsten needs a new hair cut and the man needs to shave his face. does the man, own a razor. lol. i lloved thorsten as zack on all my children.

TK is the worst recast I’ve ever seen on TV. Ridge was GQ clean and put together all the time (in spite of the bad dye job on his ‘furhat’ hair).Plus he had a very strong LA accent. TK has some kind of a grunting, gaelic accent, just impossible to understand. He looks like a doper with the poor hair style and scruffy beard. Ridge should be classically turned out , clean shaven , mr. cool-type, not a rough, old bum the way TK looks. Very bad judgment on the ex-ps part. Ridge looks older than his own father !

The new Ridge is horrible. He looks like a bum. he does not even look or act like the old Ridge. To the person who hired him, must have been blind and deaf.. Get a life.

Where are A.Gregory, T. Battle and Krystin Llyod? Are they gone???
I’m disappointed. I hate Hope, Liam and Steffy. I would like the return of Felicia, Kristen, Deacon, his son, Amber… a real tory for Rick… but i know i’m dreaming! B. Bell write only for Brooke, Katie, Bill, Hope, Liam. For my part, The Bold and The Beautiful is over with Stephanie’s death ;-(

Thomas is gone too. Hmm….

Not loving Kaye so far, but I’ll give him some time. It’s just weird seeing him onscreen as Ridge

Texas Battle and Kristolyn Lloyd. What happened to them? Adam Gregory, what happened to him too? Didn’t know about these three!

Nice to see the update. Always surprised by who stays and who goes.

The Ridge recast is generating some buzz. Glad to see Thorsten Kaye in the role as it will charge up Ridge. I would want him to be different after this sabbatical. That it is a different actor is by situation. I would think Kaye would clean up now that he may be back in corporate high-fashion form. I would welcome a haircut and shave to give a look to the man we see as people from AMC and OLTL and SMASH. But then would a new look take way from the Thorsten Kaye fans love?

Hunter Tylo was finally removed from the opening credits. She left the show over a year ago.

You are wrong jake, hunter tylo left in july. i miss her, but romour is, she is going to general hospital.

Jimmy

No, her last day on-screen was at the beginning of July, meaning she taped that episode at least a month in advance, which would be end-of-May/beginning-of-June ish. That’s only six months.

July of 2013 was her last air date!

So far, I like Thorsten Kaye as Ridge, mostly because, personally, I couldn’t stand Ronn Moss. I get that he was an original cast member, on the show for 25 years, but he really was a horrible actor. Kaye’s got some real acting chops, his Zack Slater on AMC was great, so I’m hopeful he’ll do well.

And I, too, was unaware of any contractual changes for Texas Battle, Kristolyn Lloyd and Adam Gregory. Apparently Thomas is in Paris, so there’s that, but will he be back? And where are Marcus and Dayzee?

I’m glad J.M. Wood is still in the credits, though she’s in a bit of an awkward place, I thought she’d be closer to the beginning like she was before. Carter, too, should be right before or after Maya, considering they have story together.

Also, remind me again why B&B is dropping characters like Marcus, Dayzee, Thomas and keeping Pam? What purpose does she serve anymore, other than (sort of) comedic relief? She should be on recurring, if anything. At least with Donna, we might get some sort of triangle with her, Quinn and Eric. Even then, though, Donna has been without story for the better part of 2 years.

How did they write off Thomas and Taylor? (Obviously, I drifted away some time ago)

Haha his expression is funny,like he’ld rather be in Pine Valley if he could.

I love Thorsten but its true he looks like he needs a hot shower a shave and new clothes. I mean he looks like a regular guy but everyone on B and B is so airbrushed it is a little glaring. I like the idea of grant aleksander!!

Great casting with Thorsten! Going to be good! Love Don (Bill) but not with Brooke, always loved the “love” Bill and Katie had on the show. Always a big fan of the show no matter what! ” The Bold and the Beautiful” #1

I only tuned in to B&B because Thorsten Kaye was joining the cast. I understand that for long time watchers it is difficult to have a change, However, we are all soap opera fans and have seen cast changes many times. Give him a chance. He is an amazing actor and you may grow to like him. Happy holiday to all.

Bertha

B&B please give hope and liam a chance. Wyatt is too much like Bill and with his mom’ s dysfunction a relationship with him is doom too fail.

I haven’t caught up on B&B this week, but have been looking forward to this update. Can’t wait to watch my DVR, I’m a huge fan of opening credits.

I definitely read recently that Kristolyn Lloyd chose to go to recurring status to pursue other opportunities. Texas Battle was in South Africa for some other work, I’m not sure what it was, though.

I thought it was a bad omen for Adam Gregory when Thomas was mentioned as being over at Forrester International with Steffy and Ridge. I imagine with the little use they’ve had for Thomas and the striking resemblance to the OLD Ridge, that they decided to lose the character to help the audience embrace the NEW Ridge. That would be my guess.

Are Justin Barber and Oliver Jones still featured?

Jimmy
Jimmy

I agree with Adam Gregory and Ronn Moss having a striking resemblance, I think that was a big part in recasting Thomas, but I really hope he’ll be back on the show soon, Gregory is a fine actor and I like him in the role.

For some reason, Oliver is still in the credits even though Zack Conroy went on recurring last year, and Justin was removed because Aaron D. Spears is also on recurring.

What surprises me, though, is why Pam is still in the credits. This isn’t a bash on Alley Mills, but why is Pam still around? Comedic relief? That’s pretty much it. I think they should right her and her new “beau”, Charlie whatever-his-last-name-is, off the show soon

adam

the worst recast ever, i love thorsten kaye but he is not ridge forrester. at least ronn moss, was clean cut looking and gq type of guy. Thorsten looks too scruffy. he needs a huge make over. he needs a nice short hair cut and please please shave your face. does he own, any razors? lol. i loved thorsten as zach slater on all my children. he is a terrific actor, but sorry folks he is wrong for the role of ridge.

eric
eric

i totally agree with you adam. Thorsten kaye looks always dirty, he needs to take a shower. shave that awful scruffy face. thorsten is a very good looking man, but he needs better clothing as well. they need to recast the role again, what about grant alexander ex phillip guiding light. he would make a better ridge forrester. he is always clean shaven and knows how to dress way better.

MARY

I never knew who Thorsten Kaye was. I love him on “Bold & the Beautiful”, Why
should he have to look like “Ridge”??? I think he is much more handsome and
real manly and I would’nt change a thing about him. His expressions are really deep
and caring. He is very masculine unlike “Ridge” was. He is perfect the way he is.
Don:t change a thing about him. Those who disagree, please give him a chance
befor you put him down. I hope he stays the way he is. I think he’s GREAT.

Lauralee Bell On Her 35th Anniversary With Y&R: “My Hope For Cricket Is To Smile The Way She Used To & Chill Whenever Possible.”

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

Share your congrats for Lauralee on this milestone via the comment section below.  Then let us know your most memorable or favorite Cricket/Christine moment on the CBS Daytime drama series.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!

In a statement, Gareth Neame expressed: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production.  Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen.”

Focus Features chairman, Peter Kujawski, shared: “Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter. We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen.”

Downton Abbey ran for six seasons on PBS  and received 15 Primetime Emmy awards and 69 nominations.
