Was targeting SMASH even before this news. TK’s role is a bonus. I imagine we may see other daytime favorites as they also have been a storng part of the theatre community. How cool it would be to see many of our AS THE WORLD TURNS stars on screen. Many of them have theatre credits and can sing. Maybe Michael Park should be on the SMASH short list?

I’m not really one to watch prime time TV, but since hearing that the amazing Thorsten Kaye will be appearing in this show . . . I will watch with bells on. Actually, I can’t wait!! I miss seeing him on my screen so much.

My wish is that Mr. Spielberg takes notice of TK’s talent and his role gets bigger!!

This is great news for a former AMCer. I hope that Mr. Kaye gets a chance to showcase his awesome talent and make needed connections with prime time decision makers. I also hope other AMC stars get an opportunity on this level. I know that Cameron Mathison, Debbie Morgan, Darnell Williams, and others are staying busy. Kudos!

I’ve been looking to networks other than ABC and I will be sure to start watching Smash now that TK will be playing a recurring character. Really happy for him and Susan. I already changed to the Today show from GMA. Today is a much better, more informative morning show.

That is why I am watching Smash, for him. The show is actually good. Love Thorsten. If other idiotic (ABC) people would recognize that the actors from OLTL and AMC are bringing viewers to watch whatever they are involved in maybe they would finally get a clue. Personally I think ABC is done. I won’t even watch the Oscars thanks ABC you came close to giving me a major depression. IDIOT ABC

I LOVE Smash..it is one of my Top favorite shows…so I was watching it even before I knew that Thorsten was going to be on it. But I am So happy to see him acting again! I LOVE it that he will be Angelica’s Love interest…. Men have been having women a lot younger then them for love interest for years…it is WOMEN’S turn to do that now! Smash is the BEST!

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
