Crystal Chappell has just released the first episode of season four of Venice! The highly-anticipated web series favorite has finally returned and if the first installment is any indication, it is going to be a bumpy and dramatic season!

The story picks-up after the startling season three cliffhanger when Owen (Galen Gering) is stabbed by Sami, and The Colonel (Jordan Clarke) happens upon the scene!  And if you recall in season three, there was the question of The Colonel not being Owen’s bio-dad! Will that part of the story be part of season four?  Only time will tell!    What happens in the season four premiere is shocking and emotional one for all the characters in Owen’s life, but none more than his sister, Gina (Crystal Chappell).

And as the premiere unfolds, we learn if Ani (Jessica Leccia) said “yes” to Lara’s  (Nadia Bjorlin)marriage proposal?  In addition, how will Gina cope when she learns the daughter she gave away many years ago has resurfaced?

But at the centerpiece of Venice is the undying love story and emotional bond between Gina and Ani, and in the opener, you see the pull these two have for each other at full strength much to the chagrin of Lara!  Crystal Chappell delivers a beautiful performance in the first installment that proves once again, she is one of the best actresses out there!

Venice, whose themes range from their same-sex love story, and the afterlife, continues on that path with some surprising twists and turns in the season opener including: a crime scene investigation, and Guya (Hillary B. Smith) feeling the presence of those who have passed on!  And be on the lookout for Christian LeBlanc’s turn as Ani’s brother and Michael Sabatino as Alan, as when these two are on the canvas, the rest of the Venice cast of characters better watch their backs!

Now watch the season four premiere episode of Venice, and let us know what was your reaction?  Were you shocked? What did you think of Crystal Chappell’s performance?  Comment below!

Well, I was impressed with the episode and the performance of all the actors present; Crystal Chappell and Judi Evans’ especially. Robert Newman easily and smoothly stepped into Peter Reckell’s shoes as Richard yet without trying to be exactly like Peter; I was impressed with that too. I feel this season of Venice will contain far more angst than the previous seasons and I congratulate Crystal Chappell for a job well done.

Put the camera on a tripod for god’s sake. The lighting was awful. I don’t usually care about those things with a web series. But it was so darn distracting.

Interesting seeing all the different soap characters. If your into lesbians I’m sure it would be good. Can’t tell if there’s to much plastic surgery or not enough? The filming is good. The heaven scene was lame.

The comment about the plastic surgery was uncalled for and cruel. And what’s really lame are the spelling mistakes in your comment.

I loved the heaven scene. It injected some humor into a very serious episode.

WOW what a show. Cudos for Crystal, cast and crew. I have already watched several times to make sure that I didn’t miss anything. So ready for the next episode. Broke my heart when Guya wakes up and ask for Owen to return and then Ani in Gina’s arms. What a great show. Can’t wait to see what is next.

Just one question why did GH not do everything in the world to get Robert Newman to play Julian Jerome? Gosh how I miss that man!

I liked the dramatic potential of Owen’s death but HATED the heaven scenes. I loved the moments between Gina & Ani. The overall tone of the show is different this season and not for the better. Poor lighting, terrible music (except the song at the end), it just didn’t feel as high quality as Venice usually does.

I have to say, episode 2 is soooo much better. It’s too bad it’s not the freeby because I think it would reel in more potential viewers. There’s a snazzy new opening. It is a very compelling, cohesive episode with none of that heaven nonsense.

Guiding Light

GL & ATWT Alum Tom Pelphrey On His Role in ‘Mank’: “I Got To Say Rosebud On-Screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher Film. Pretty Cool.”

What we all knew first, everyone in Hollywood and all of America is becoming to realize;  that Tom Pelphrey (Ex-Jonathan, Guiding Light, Mick, As the World Turns) is just a naturally-gifted actor able to tap into such deep emotional depths in every part he plays that make him a stand-out in every project he is in.

Now, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is coming off a critically-acclaimed run in season 3 of Nerflix’s Ozark, can be seen in one of the talked about potential Oscar contenders, the film, Mank.

In the David Fincher film, Pelphrey plays Joseph Mankiewicz the brother to Gary Oldman’s Herman “Mank” Mankiewicz, and in a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Tom realizes the enormity of one of the key and most famous words in cinema history that he gets to say during Joseph’s reaction to Mank’s script for Citizen Kane … “rosebud”.

Pelphrey shared on the revelation that his line in the film is part of a huge historic fabric of cinema history: ““Oh my god. I didn’t even think about that. Wow. When you work on something like this, you really try to do your job to the best of your ability, and you really just focus on the task at hand.”

He added, Y”ou don’t really stop and consider the whole big thing- at least I didn’t. But you don’t want to get too swept up in that or get intimidated. You want to just come in, focus on your work and put your head down. And yeah, now is the time to sit back and say, ‘I got to say Rosebud on-screen with Gary Oldman, in a David Fincher film.’ Pretty cool.

Mank, is now available in select theatres and streams beginning on December 4th on Netflic.

So, excited to see Tom in Mank? Comment below.  But first, check out this trailer from the film,
