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!

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.

Soap Vet, Broadway Star and Artistic Director, Robert Lupone Passes Away at 76

Bob Lupone, the brother of Broadway Icon, Patti Lupone, and who is best-known to soap opera fans as con artist Zach Grayson on All My Children (1984-1985) has died at the age of 76.

The actor, and artistic director of Off-Broadway’s acclaimed MCC Theatre for over 40 years, passed away Saturday, due to complications from his three year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Ironically, Bob was best known on Broadway as Zach in A Chorus Line which landed him a Tony Award nomination in 1976, and he also received a Daytime Emmy nomination for his other role of Zach on All My Children in 1985.  The murder of Zach Grayson was quite the murder mystery and trial; bringing in many suspects to the story.

In addition to All My Children, throughout his soap career, Lupone held roles on: Search for Tomorrow as Tom Bergman, Ryan’s Hope as Chester Wallace, Another World as Neal Cory, Loving as Leonard Brill/Charley Nichols, and Guiding Light as Leo Flynn.  He also appeared in primetime TV roles including: The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and several roles in the Law and Order franchise.

Lupone made his feature film debut in the 1973 musical adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstar playing the Apostle James, and two years later got the Broadway role of his lifetime playing Zach in A Chorus Line after convincing creator and director Michael Bennett to let him play the part after the original actor departed the show.

A decade later, LuPone would co-found the Off-Broadway theatre company, MCC Theater, with Bernard Telsey and William Cantler.  MCC was founded as an artists collective designed to offer peer based classes and playwright development and has launched several successful shows that went on to great success.

LuPone is survived by his wife, Virginia; his son, Orlando; sister, Patti; and brother, William.

Below, take a look at the suspects in the Zach Grayson murder case on All My Children, followed by the 1976 performance by Robert and the cast of A Chorus Line on The Tony Awards, and last, a scene as AMC’s Zach around the 6 minute mark in the video.

Now, share your condolences to the Lupone family on Bob’s passing, and your remembrances in the comment section.
