Many viewers of The Young and the Restless have missed the performances of Thad Luckinbill of J.T. Hellstrom since he left the daytime drama series back in 2010.  Since his departure from the CBS soap opera, Luckinbill (husband to Y&R’s Amelia Heinle) has been making a name for himself behind the camera, as well as in front of.

Now comes some intriguing news that Luckinbill has been added to the cast as a series regular in the upcoming Meaghan Oppenheimer drama pilot project for ABC, that is being executive produced by Academy Award winner, Reese Witherspoon.

According to Yahoo TV, the project follows the personal and professional life of Gemma, a ruthless divorce attorney in Dallas, which begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister resurfaces, triggering self-destructive tendencies and exposing long-hidden family secrets. Charity Wakefield will play the role of Jules, Gemma’s younger sister. Described as manic, emotionally unstable, and lacking any trace of a filter, Jules is the epitome of loneliness gone wrong. Whereas her older sister Gemma has built up walls of icy protection around her, Jules is desperate for any bit of love she can get.

Thad Luckinbill will play the role of Oliver, Gemma’s trophy fiance, the preppy trust fund kid with classic good looks. He would be detestable if he weren’t such a nice guy.  Reese Witherspoon and Luckinbill have worked together before when both appeared in the 2014 motion picture, The Good Lie, in which Witherspoon starred.

miss j.t so much!
bad boy who turned good!
he was such a natural fit on the canvas. He was like a surrogate son to paul who mentored him and it was a much more organic father/ son dynamic than the forced paul/ dylan reveal
j.t and colleen were so sweet and probably the last successful teen romance to develop from the ‘ YOUNG’ and restless set, nothing else has stuck really…
the murder of colleen was completly unnecesary as was the last recast from adrienne to tammy as the character of colleen. j.t and colleen had so much potential

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
