Y&R Casting Contract Role of College Grad, Max! Could it be a SORAS'd Kyle or Someone Else?

The Young and the Restless is adding yet another character to the canvas, and this time its for the younger set!  According to CBS Soaps In Depth, “A casting call for the contract role of Max, who is returning to Genoa City after graduating from college. While he’s a clean-cut, all American good guy, Max seems to have it all, but carries a chip on his shoulder for certain people in his past. ”

Many are speculating that this sounds like Jack Abbott’s son, Kyle, who was last seen being shipped off the canvas for a Hockey Scholarship!  If it is Kyle, he would definitely be SORAS’d, and if it isn’t, who could this be?  Clearly, with the summer upon us the younger set is always featured.

Who do you think fits the bill for this casting call?  Let us know!

    Well he should be close in age to Abby and this would do that.

      It wouldn’t be for Sarge. It’s something RETURNING to Genoa City.

    Another new character to add too the pack of newbies? Good grief. I’d rather they bring “clean-cut, all American good guy” Chance back.

    Phillip Chancellor the IV is major legacy character, why isn’t he in town being groomed to run his grandfather’s company. We hear the name Chancellor all the time yet no real Chancellors (by blood) live in GC.

      They’re not recasting Ricky at all. Nor Noah. They tried Noah and it failed. Plus, Peter Porte is fine as Ricky. It’s either Scotty or Kyle.

    Unrealistic if MAB does this for Kyle she should have done it right the first time. He is a yr older then Abby. I just scream this show is a Mess! How the morale can be anything but in the dumps is beyond me but still every actor from that show sings her praises I know they need a job. I would have more respect if they just would not discuss that woman who has the brain of a twelve year old and that is being generous!

    Kyle? I hope not. The pre-adolescent kid left around Christmas 2011 and now we’re supposed to think he’s an adult? That’s quite a stretch. The new character may be Lauren’s kid, Scotty or the presumed dead Dylan (the baby Sheila wanted Lauren believe was hers). BTW, who is Jill’s biological mother? We know Neil Fenmore is her biological father. Attn: MAB this is good story material and no need for a bunch of newbies. Just saying.

      Worse things have happening in the past concerning SORAS’ed characters. I mean, the guy playing Noah now played him as a teenager, then they SORAS’ed him again with someone new then brought the old actor back.

    Do not SORAS Kyle, let the poor kid have some time alone without his mother.

    Hopefully it’s just a recasted Fenmore, or something. But does this show really need more people? Ditch some cast and update the opener for once!

    I am back in country after 10 years, I was able to watch young and restless and
    catch up without any problem, it amazed me how a lot of the characters have
    reformed do the writers not realize people have been following these characters for years I guess miracels are possible on soaps still it is hard to change my opinion of
    some of the characters !!!!!!!!!

    According to Hollywood Reporter…someone named Blake Hood will be playing the part of Kyle soon. Didn’t he just leave town as a teen? This guy looks like a 20 something actor. I have no idea who he is, but he was on 90210 re-dux. Didn’t they just wrap up the who killed Diane Jenkins so-called mystery…as if anyone really cared!

    I LOVE Maura West, but quite frankly, she was screwed big time in that deal. Now the kid will be aged beyond belief. Should we wonder why the soaps ratings are so bad? Writing and Production that makes no sense. I am about to try the new/old General Hospital for a change. Maybe brining back characters viewers know and love and hopefully understand with the crazy writing/aging beyond belief going on in soaps these days will make sense.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
