I like How To Get Away With Murder. And miss Scandal.
But– as for this Timothy Hutton guy. I looked him over and have no inkling as to who he is out outside of what I just read..

And– I’m sure I will be seeing him in Netflix ‘The Haunting Of Hill House'(that will be the 4th redo of it.. looking forward to the upcoming newer version of The Haunting Of Hill House.

Oh, su000, Timothy Hutton won an Oscar in 1980 for ORDINARY PEOPLE, my all-time favorite film. THAT movie changed my life and Hutton’s brilliant performance (he was 19 during filming) and Robert Redford’s sensitive direction are a big part of it. I can’t find adequate words to describe the impact that movie had on me. Hutton had a few good roles for a while (THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN, DANIEL, TAPS) but didn’t fit into the Brat Pack mold that took over in the 80s. He’s worked off and on, most recently in the wonderful AMERICAN CRIME series. I’m happy he’s getting work steadily. He’s aged a lot, but still has the acting chops. Maybe his role here will prompt renewed interest in ORDINARY PEOPLE, 1980’s Oscar-winning Best Picture. You’ll never look at Mary Tyler Moore the same way again.

I am a fan of TH. I am not a fan of HTGAWM. I will likely catch him on Netflix instead.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
