So, SOD describes Summer as being in her early 40s.

What about Jessica Collins? She’s 44.

Jimh – The Bree Williamson was the last actress to play Jessica Buchanan on OLTL. She did a wonderful job. I agree she would be a great choice for this Days role.

I like your suggestion of Kimberlin Brown—it doesn’t seem like she will be back as Sheila on the CBS soaps and she can play looney better than anyone—here’s hoping!!!

LOL, Jimh! I’ve decided to wish for Julia Roberts whom was suggested by Greg. Jennifer Aniston would be good too!

Guest
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Now that she has been mentioned i just bet Jennifer Aniston will get the part and will be in scenes with her dad John…as Victor i can see him catching her stealing something from the K mansion and Victor remarking something like, ‘Where is your father? Have you had no proper upbringing?’ she replies, ‘You remind me of him’…she could turn out to even be his long lost daughter or maybe she kidnaps Brady and Theresa’s baby???

Yes, Jimh!

And her character can put Tate on the black market where he is eventually adopted by a character played by Brooke Shields (she played a rabid DAYS fan on ‘Friends’)!

Alicia Minshew. She’s said she grew up watching DOOL and she has friends in the cast. Plus she lives in NY and probably wouldn’t want to do a long term contract on a west coast soap.

Kimberlin Brown would be good! She’s missed in daytime!

Beth Chamberlin, Fiona Hutchinson or Beth Ehlers! Of course of they could also make Carly have a twin and bring Crystal Chapell back!

I said the same thing that it should be Fiona Hutchinson since she played a thief so well on Guiding Light! But I would be happy with Beth Ehlers and Beth Chamberlain also.

Well since it’s the 50th and she is a major super-fan I would love to see them cast Julia Roberts in this role.

Martha Byrne, Beth Ehlers, Jennifer Landon, Cady McClain, or Noelle Beck would be great! And sometimes short term roles turn into long term ones! It happens all the time.

Either Bree Williamson, age 35, or Florencia Lozano, age 45, would be great. Both did outstanding work on OLTL. It would be great to see Florencia and Kassie DePaiva work together again.

Susan Haskell, who played Marty on OLTL, could do this role. She’s good at the troubled outcast looking for attention.

i really miss the second colleen on y n r – Adrienne Leonne, not sure why she was recast with the last one. I really miss her colleen and jt on y n r… maybe days could cast her as summer. She plays tough really well! i could picture her and Shawn D really hot together!

Bree Williamson sounds perfect for the casting breakdown except that she’s a bit too young.

If the age was right, I would say Debbie Morgan as the show NEEDS ethnicity. Also immediately thought of Brianna Brown (GH, Devious Maids) as she’s great at playing bad. She just signed on to a new pilot, so don’t know if she would do a short term role or if the pilot will take all her time.

People seem to ignore that the breakdown called for someone in their 40’s. She may be a bit too old in the age bracket they are looking for, but what about Cady McClain? I think she’d be fantastic in the role and would kill to see her back on daytime! She should be working on a soap opera that is going to use her talents for all they are worth!

Okay, I might be in minority here but I don’t think this is good news. All these actress being named are wonderful, but the gig is short term, I think they all deserve longer contracts if any of them are chosen. To me it is insulting to offer an experienced day time actress a part only to capitalized on their name and then tossed them to the curb when they don’t their bit to hike ratings during no doubt will be a sweeps period. This is basically stunt casting which really doesn’t add anything to the show– if this character… Read more »

How about Patty Duke – she’s young at heart and started acting was she was about seven years old. She deserves a consideration.

How about Fiona Hutchinson since was delicious playing a jewel thief on Guiding Light?

“Summer,” really? Y&R already has a (dreadful) character named Summer.

Are there no more names available?! Talk about your lack of imagination. I am disappointed in you, Sony, but that doesn’t surprise me when you put out one movie called PASSENGERS and then a few years later you do it again, but with a completely different plot.

Sony what has happened to you? You are better than this!

They often use a different name in the casting call than the actual name of the character.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
