The Stafford Project Episode 3: Y&R's Joshua Morrow Guest Stars In A PHICK Reunion … With A Twist!

How many times today have those of you who have been anticipating the release of the third installment of Michelle Stafford’s new web series, The Stafford Project are watching it over and over again? We are!  It’s just that funny …  and clever!

So here is the lowdown: while “Michelle” is getting her hair-colored at a hair salon, she has a surprise visitor!  It turn out to be Her soap opera acting partner who has tracked her down who comes to tell her that she is not “bringing it” in their scenes.  That visitor happens to be the one and only Joshua Morrow (Nick, Y&R), who once again proves that doing satire or spoof is right up his alley.  Morrow  plays an egotistical, over-bearing, full-of-himself actor, who literally takes over the salon to the hilt!

But what is so fun for long time soap fans of The Young and the Restless and the couple “Phick” is that  once again, whether it is dramatic or comedic material, there is no denying that Michelle Stafford and Joshua Morrow work so well off of each other and this twist on their on-screen former real-life soap life was in a one word … brilliant!

If you have not seen it we will not give it way the ending, but needless to say, writers Michelle Stafford, Paige Long, and Paige Dorian, wrapped this episode up very tightly with a great sight gag at the end.  If the show keeps this up, it’s going to have a bright, bright future!

Now watch our favorite Stafford Project episode entitled, “That Guy” after the jump!  And tell us what you thought of Joshua and Michelle in this episode?  Did you love seeing them together on-screen again?  Comment away!

I want to love this…but honestly, I just don’t. Michelle was amazing on Y&R, and I think she would be great on a sitcom…but this isn’t funny or well acted. An actual reality series would be a better idea in my opinion. But I still LOVE Michelle!!!

Can’t believe she left network TV for this nonsense. Beyond stupid. If Michelle Stafford wasn’t so popular and didn’t have so many followers, nobody would be watching. She could do anything she wanted on YouTube and her fans would praise her. Sad she doesn’t realize that.

I LOVE this web series, and am excited for more episodes!! That being said, I hope that future installments allow more of her “character” to be exposed, rather than just reacting to the nut jobs around her (even though her reactions are hilarious!) Congratulations to everyone involved!

Yes, I was thinking the same thing. I enjoy the way this is being played out, but do hope for more dialogue from Michelle rather than the majority is her reacting to the situations. I see other comments in the same vein.

Josh Morrow is hysterical…does he nail the campy vibe of this, or what?
I think part of his “schtick” is to make Michelle laugh out of character. The hair stylist in the background can not keep a straight face 🙂 Loved it.

Episode 3 is The Bomb…laughed so hard, we had to keep running it back because we were missing lines (and facial expressions)…Joshua & Michelle are tops & are a hard act to follow…All 3 eps are a “must see,” at least three times over…Can’t wait for “4, 5, 6… … …1000!”

Oh, I absolutely get it. I get that she took a major step backwards. Sorry YOU didn’t get MY post. Wasn’t dissing MS, just saying she’s too talented for 7 minutes of YouTube nonsense.

I don’t get it! Isn’t this what she is suppose to be getting away from? The Young and the Restless? Well anyway many actors do more then one project. She couldn’t do Y & R and this? I am surprised that everyone around her is doing all the talking, even the baby, and Michelle just makes these blank stares with little to no dialogue. I can’t believe she’s a woman with not much to say! I keep watching hoping its going to get better! Hope so, I think she is a great actress beyond Phyllis, but this does not showcase… Read more »

Awesome seeing them back together again! Michelle needs to come back to Y & R . The show needs her & all her fans need her. Not only that but she needs to kick Sharons butt down the stairs!!!!! Love & miss you Nm ichelle on Y & R. But its nice to still watch you on your web series.

Bravo for trying something new and different; however, you were at your best at Y & R! Please go back and continue the wonderful character of Phyllis that you spent years creating. This doesn’t show your true talent and acting skills and abilities; it doesn’t give you the appearance of being the professional that you are.

Sorry – This does not portray the best of Michele—what is she thinking ….everyone else is doing the acting and talking and she keeps doing and saying the same in each episode—–miss her on Y&R Where she was fantastic…. Her mgrs need to get her back in the public eye TV or movies…..

OK…I understand the need to branch out and do other projects; but, can’t that be worked into your Y&R contract? Others have stepped out and done other projects, but never “left” the show completely. I am so certain that the Phyllis fan-base of Y&R will be so overwhelmed with the return of MS that she could write her own ticket/contract! PLEASE come back to us on Y&R….PLEASE. I agree with the others that there is too much talent being wasted on a web-series? Write and produce on a larger scale maybe? Just, work that time into that new Y&R contract!… Read more »

Loved it! I have watched ‘the Young and the Restless” and “Bold & Beautiful” almost since beginning of the shows. I was sorry to see Michelle leave but understand her need for change. I miss the interaction between the two actors. I have always felt Soap Actors are under appreciated. Michelle’s new project shows that actors have many sides to their acting abilities. Thanks Michelle for taking the leap and believing in yourself enough to show your fans that acting is all about being able to entertain in different genres.

Oh Michelle, I understand wanting to try something different, now that you have run back to the Y&R before that new person wakes up. This new project is just not it, I’m sorry. Now that you have a beautiful child you are going to need a lot more cash coming in, take it from me I raised three on my own and wow was it tuff. If I had a star quality job like yours I would never leave, it’s ok to follow your dreams just don’t leave your cash cow on the side of the road, some other hot… Read more »

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
