TONIGHT: Kelly Kruger and Ryan Paevey In Hallmark Channel’s ‘From Friend to Fiancé’

Courtesy/Ha;llmarkChannel

When Ted gets engaged to the high school mean girl and asks Jess, his childhood best friend, to plan their wedding, things get complicated. Her true feelings for Ted keep getting in the way … and that’s the set-up for tonight’s premiere of From Friend to Fiancé  which stars Jocelyn Hudon along with daytime drama favorites: Kelly Kruger (Mackenzie, Y&R) and Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan, General Hospital).

From Friend to Fiancé bows tonight on the Hallmark Channel beginning at 9PM ET and 8PM CT.  In the story, Paevey plays the man at the epicenter of all the attention, Ted, while Kruger takes on the role of Kimberly Kentwood.

This movie is part of Hallmark’s ‘Countdown to Summer’ promotion of stories that always centers around love and romance and how people come together, or break apart, and them come back together again.

The cable network sent this tweet out in anticipation of tonight’s premiere: “The wait is almost over! What will Jess do when she finds out her best friend Ted is marrying her sworn high school rival Kimberly ?”

Meanwhile, Kelly Kruger announced that she will be live-tweeting with fans at 9PM during the debut of the movie.

So, looking forward to seeing Ryan and Kelly together on-screen? Comment below.

Patrick Just cant help myself sometimes. I’m always afraid my humour will offend someone, but Celia says she has a crazy funny bone too, so I kind of feel I have her for backup. P.S glad you didn’t choke on your coffee!

All these Hallmark are the same stories with different titles.

For some reason, i don’t miss him on Gh. I think he has been perfectly replaced by Chase (sorry, I’m blanking on the actor’s name).

Sorry to say, I’ve not missed Ryan Paevey one bit. Josh Swickard/Chase has taken over quite well. I don’t miss Dante either. Maybe it’s true, out of sight, out of mind.

Ryan is always charming, and Kelly was also–BUT they needed MUCH stronger writing. There were a lot of empty “fillers” in the movie. To bad–much potential in both actors, if they were only given stronger material. Why can’t they get stronger writers on the movies on Hallmark? A lot of the movies lack “teeth” and substance–but a lot of the other actors featured also have potential.

Nancy,
I think they just need to replace their old cookie cutter. Maybe the old one is wearing out. Ha!

Oops! It’s not Kruger that Ryan had the chemistry with. It’s the other actress that played his best friend–Joclyn Hudonx–that he had the chemistry with. She a cutie–and was very good–AND has much potential, like Ryan, given a better script.

Now, if I can only get her name right: everyone actress deserves as much.
It’s “Jocelyn Hudon”–my apologies to her.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.
