A new ABC casting notice has gone out for a new role on the hit primetime soapy drama Revenge for it’s upcoming season two.   The role is to play Conrad’s son (Henry Czerny) from his first marriage.  Yes, that means another Grayson male is headed to the Hamptons.  That also means that Daniel (Josh Bowman) is not the only Grayson who is making a play for the family business!   Oh, the tangled web they weave in the writer’s room at Revenge  gets more … tangled!

The hit series is looking for a young actor to play the following:  “Intelligent and effortlessly handsome, this other heir apparent will attempt to reclaim his role in Conrad’s life and company, throwing the family and corporate dynamic into chaos.”

So soapers, who you would you cast in this role?  Who do you think would be a great fit in terms of looks, and acting chops to join Revenge?  With so many popular former soap stars and actors looking for a great part, this could be it!  And, do you think that this new man will make a play for the love or to control Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp)?    Weigh-in!

I would like to see them cast Van Hansis in this role.

I was thinking the very same.

I think he is too young or at least too young looking (which isn’t a bad thing). I would maybe suggest Jake Silbermann though instead who is almost 30 (and sexy as heck too).

I just looked at Van’s age and he is actually born in 81 which I can’t believe.

Love Scott Bailey & does need to be on a soap again. I’m not sure who I would cast in this role but there are several very sexy unemployed soap hunks out there.

Sarah, i was thinking Van Hansis too or even Josh Kelly.
I was also thinking Dave Annable, but he already has a new show on ABC.

New Grayson hunk needs to be older than Josh Bowman’s Daniel, so a man at age 30 or so? And would he need be perhaps of different features, not dark but more fair? I will give this one some thought. Hmmmmm…

I would LOVE to watch this show…unfortunately it is on ABC, so I will never see it. Lots of great former soap talent out there who could use the gig.

Grayson McCouch would be the perfect choice. He’d always remember his characters last name …but I think he’s on the disney channel in some fluff show. Oh well…maybe an unknown would be the best choice.

Revenge has done an amazing job with casting the current characters and with so many daytimers out of work, where would one begin?

His name is Peter Porte he just finished up his role as Ricky William on The Young and the Restless! This kid is going places Emmy all the way! He would be perfect as the brother unless he get’s the part as Christian Grey for Fifty Shades of Grey!!!

Chad Brannon (Zander GH)
Dylan Bruce (Chris ATWT)
Justin Bruening (Jamie AMC)
David A. Gregory (Ford OLTL)
Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip Days)
Josh Kelly (Cutter OLTL)
Peter Porte (Ricky YR)

‘Grand Hotel’s’ Lincoln Younes Cast As Lead In CW’s Reboot Pilot of ‘The Lost Boys’

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.

So, what do you think of a TV version and reboot of The Lost Boys? Comment below.

A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
