TODAY: Y&R’s Eric Braeden to Appear on ‘The Talk’

UPDATED: The iconic, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) of The Young and the Restless will be a guest on the Friday, February 4th episode of the CBS afternoon chatfest, The Talk.

Braeden is now celebrating his 42nd year as Genoa City’s Victor and will discuss his longtime career with the hosts.  Tune-in today at 2PMEST/1PMPST on CBS.

Just added is a clip from Eric’s guest spot on The Talk below where host Sheryl Underwood asks, “Is Victor really letting the kids take over? “No, I mean a little bit, you know,” says Braeden. “But I’m watching like a hawk. One misstep…can’t let go. I think it’s difficult for some fathers, powerful fathers, to let go and let their children, their sons or their daughters take over, very hard. In real life, not so hard.”

Braeden also weighs-in on two of his favorite scenes with Victor Newman’s mom (Dorothy McGuire) and dad (George Kennedy). Eric shared: “I lost my father early on and I was born in the middle of the Second World War, 1941…we plunged into poverty when he died, when I was 12…war is a terrible thing…so, it touched nerves in me, I think. As an actor you go back to what you experienced all your life, especially in your childhood.” He adds, “We did that scene in one take. What people don’t realize about daytime, we do this stuff in one or two takes…The most I’ve ever done in one day was 62 pages of dialogue. So you just cram in between scenes, you just cram, but it keeps your mind sharp.”

Now let us know, when you think of all of Victor’s storylines and moments over the years, which ones still stand out to you and are some of your favorites? Let us know in the comment section below.

Sorry Erics a bust for me. Funny how when he wasnt the ‘ focus’ of the show during the Mal Young tenure he was so vocal! Twittering about Jordans Rey and the Rosales taking over the show and sidelining Doug Davidson and himself but now thats he on every day its a ok in genoa city!???? The show is boring a.f and the plots make lil to no sense, Victor constantly in repetitive mode putting his children against eachother for no real cause or purpose! The show has three sets and is so cheap looking i ve seen theater in… Read more »

Damien, I don’t agree about Mia Rosales — I thought she was an ill-conceived character; I never knew what to think of her. But the show is WAY OFF BALANCE. Abby, Chance, and Devon EVERY DAY! EVERY DAY! Victoria’s twisted, malicious vendetta against Adam, which Victor has no problem with, is stomach churning. The only interesting thing about Tessa & Mariah is Rory Gibson’s soulful performances as the crushed Noah. We do have a little more Michael and Lauren lately. But where’s Kevin, Gloria, Traci, Jill, Ashley, Paul, Esther? The soaps I grew up with were ensembles, not “star” shows… Read more »

I agree ! The sets are terrible , the writing is atrocious, anyone with half a brain could turn this show around with better writing , better sets , and the original Music scores . I haven’t watched the show for the first time in 20 years ! I stopped watching because nothing happens, no big storylines, no villains (real villains like Tricia Dennison , Sheila Carter , David Kimble . The sets are cheap , every scene is bright , the music in the background is cheesy . Go back and watch clips from the 70’s , 80s and… Read more »

In the entertainment business, you can’t publicly bash the hand that feeds you….the EP for one and the HW for another. You do that, they’ll land you in Siberia with no storyline at all or they’ll fire you all together.

Always enjoy his interviews. Love the photos above with his parents. The mother wasnt too bad but that father was a piece of work.

I quite enjoyed his time on The Talk today. He had some interesting stories and made people laugh during some of them. And he sounded like Victor. As for his character on Y&R though, I don’t like how he continually plays his children off one other.

Eric Breaden is a excellent actor on icon ,he is the show , I have so much respect for him as a actor and a person. My favorite stuff is Victor vs Jack ,that rivalry is the best on TV. Eric and Peter work so well together. Victor and Nikki are the show. Yes the writing is suffering ,but it’s not that bad, and I am a loyal fan of the show for almost 40 years. If people are so unhappy why not petition to get Josh Griffith fired instead of complaining all the time. Eric is the best.

Eric Braeden is an amazing articulate actor but I hope Victor can put an obstacle on the developing pairing of Adam and Sally they’re so boring and they have zero chemistry when Fenmore Baldwin returns he should be Sallys new love interest not Adam Zach Tinker and Courtney Hope will definitely look superhot together.

Fenmore is too nice for Sally. She likes the bad boy type, strong and dynamic like Adam that won’t fall over if she blows on him.

General Hospital

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!

Daytime Emmy-Winner Ted King Returns to B&B as Jack and Shares: “Sheila Might Want To Watch Her Back”

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, things are set to take a startling turn.  First, in the latest promo for the CBS soap opera, Finn (Tanner Novlan) finally wakes up from his coma and Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) is right there with him! What will her next move be?

Meanwhile, newly crowned Daytime Emmy-winner for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series, Ted King (Jack), will be back on the canvas and that will come with more twists and turns in this already twisted storyline!

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the character of Jack returns to Los Angeles after the massive falling out with his wife, Li (Naomi Matsuda) – who is somewhere under water at this point – and his biological son, Finn.  As viewers know, Finn was the ‘by-product’ of Jack’s affair with Sheila many years ago.

Now learning that Sheila shot both Finn and Steffy, Jack is not going to just let that go by quietly. Far from it!

King explained to SOD: “Sheila might want to watch her back.” He added, “This is not a happy family. At this point we’ve only seen Jack and Sheila extremely distant – and at each other’s throat.  So, I don’t think it’s going to get any better.”

Watch the latest promo for B&B below.  Then weigh-in; Glad to have Ted King back on the canvas? Will Jack get swept up again in Sheila’s machinations? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
