Y&R Casting "Quirky" Yet Calculating Lab Tech Character! Who Would You Suggest To Play The Part?

Another casting call this week from The Young and the Restless! According to Soap Opera Digest, the number one soap is now looking for a quirky character named Tobias!

According to the casting breakdown, the character is  described as:  “A lab technician in his mid 20s to early 30s. The character will be quirky but ‘have a cold, calculating energy about him.’  The role is non-contract but still considered to be a major one.  The role begins taping on October 24.”

Sounds a bit like GH’s Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) but with an edge, doesn’t it? Or, does it?  So put on your casting director hats, and let us know who you think would be a good fit for the part?

Is there someone from daytime or primetime TV that would fit the bill to you?  Will this “lab tech” be working in the hospital …  Jabot …  or somewhere else?  Comment below!

i’m hoping, it’s Trent Dawson, as well…. he was so good with Barbara on ATWT… these two carried me to the finale… of my all time fave

I hope… that, if it’s Trent… that he’s paired with ED… Ashley

with his comedic… romantic chops… and capable of much intrigue… that it’s with ED

they would be a combustible pairing

Ricardo…oh, yes. Oh, how I WISH that Trent Dawson would come back to Daytime already!!!!! Y&R, B&B, DOOL, GH…A-N-Y of the 4 remaining soaps would be TRULY LUCKY to land Trent Dawson. IMO, that’s how T-A-L-E-N-T-E-D Trent Dawson is as an actor!!!!! Yes.

Take care, Ricardo. Peace.

How about the actor who played Vimal on OLTL…he and Rama were fun to watch…but Bradford Anderson would be my best bet because…you know…A.E.P.?…GHs and Y&Rs ‘Actor Exchange Program’…lol

Oh can’t he be in in his late forties to early fifties?

Just from reading the title Bradford Anderson came to mind. Jill Ferren-Phelps will cast one of her friends I’m sure!

I totally agree withsteve and Bradford are so close, and so I Jill to Bradford, to me it is Bradford job to turn down if he wants too.

Brett…Oh, yes. I agree. I wouldn’t put ANYTHING past that woman. Nope.

It does sound like Bradford & I would think he could end up their giving his relationship with Jill/Steve… but then I thought she would have cast Brandon Barrash as the new Billy or new Adam for the same reasons… and that didn’t happen.

What about the guy who played the lab tech on B&B?

It does sound a lot like Spinelli, and I would love Bradford Anderson to take on the role, I really miss him on GH! Y&R could definitely take advantage of his incredible talent in this role.

Trent Dawson also came to mind, but he’s about 15-20 years too old for this role.

CeeCee

Hi, Jimmy,
The first actor that came to mind was Spinelli for me also. Then I read the word, ‘calculating’. I don’t think he was a calculating character…so, I don’t know.
Nonetheless, Andrew Trischitta, would fit this role to the max.
Those of you who are/were fans of OLTL, may remember him in the role of Jack Manning?….like father like son; or so it was said and sung.
Andrew is really good looking, the right age and incredibly talented.

Just hire Bradford Anderson and reunite the Port Chuck gang!

I bet this Lab Tech changes the paternity test for Victoria’s baby. Probably on Victor’s payroll.

This is clearly Steve Burton getting his friend a job.

Bradford…possibly. Or it could be that JFP trying to get one of her ‘FOJ-like friends’ a job. Any way you look at it…y-i-k-e-s.

Just don’t make the lab tech a bungler or one who will succumb to a vixen seeking parentage/DNA tests. SO OVER IT!

Change it to a female and have Louis Sorel, Liz Hubard, Robin Strasser, or Juliet Mills.

Yes great idea, Bring Louise Sorel ex Vivian Days of Our lives to the Young and The Restless as Dina Mergeron Jacks Mother. Marla Adams Is the original Dina. Or recast sharons mom with Louise Sorel or Elizabeth Hubbard ex Lucinda As The World Turns.

I don’t care who they hire — I’m just thrilled another new character is joining the show. It’s been over a week since the announcement of Sally Kellerman joining the show and I was beginning to worry the writers were going to focus on creating story for all the characters they already have that are doing nothing,

TOTALLY needs to be Brendan Coughlin, aka “T” on Days. If they are not going to use him, Y&R needs to get on that.

I love both Trent Dawson and Bradford Anderson and both would be amazing on YR! Miss both of them. Can we have both? Don’t make me choose! Two of my faves. You’ve got me in the mood for Henry and Spinelli, now I’m drooling!

Nikki

I have to agree. Trent Dawson was a favorite as Henry and Spinelli would be my first choice although I think he might still be under contract on G.H. Either one would be great!

Reagan

Spinelli is the obvious choice… but then I thought Brandon Barash (ex Johnny) was the obvious choice for the new Billy or the new Adam. Neither of those happened. Eric Nelson (who was the new AMC reboot) might look too young but I could see him having fun in that role. Jason Cook (ex Shawn, Days; ex Matt, GH) would be another cutie I would love to see back on my TV screen. IF they would go older, I’ll love for Dr. David Hayward (AMC) to show up! I also agree that I like the idea of the character being… Read more »

I would love if Bradford Anderson would take it, although, I just might start to cry if it became contract (I want Spin back at GH ) … but JaSpin is what got me hooked on GH.. so to have Steve and Bradford working together again would be my second favorite soap dream come true.. (right after a Spixie reunion…. 🙂 )

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
