Y&R Casting Two New Roles, But One Must Hit The Right Notes! Who Would You Suggest To Play Them?

Put your casting director hats on daytime fans! The Young and the Restless has put out a casting call for two new roles, who will obviously be written for by the new Sally Sussman regime on the top-rated CBS daytime drama series.

The first new role is that of Marcus, who is said to be caucasian and age 32.  Marcus is described as a dashing, passionate journalist.

The other role is that of Ivy, 25-years-old.  She is a young free-spirited fun-loving singer.  The role is said to be contract. Soap Opera Digest first reported the casting news.

So, who do you think for daytime or primetime would make a good Marcus? Who from music, recording, or from daytime or nighttime TV could hit the right notes as Ivy? Share your inspired casting ideas in the comment section below.

I hope she turns this around but someone clue me in why was their not any script adjusting of Pratts writing? I fast forwarded seven episodes in thirty minutes! You have destroyed the character of Travis and dam get Nick off my screen and his greasy hair

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I’m hearing you about Nick and his hair. Lately I think about Nick the way I use to think about the scruffyness of Stitch. They look like they need a good hot bath.

Celia

Right, soaphound? Chelsea was never seen without Connor. I mean, do TPTB think we do not notice?

alexis
alexis

how come the director doesn’t have connor on the show more. he is cute. they have nick on the show more. travis should leave town with michelle and don’t come back ever. i hate travis so much. the character i like more than travis is billy .

blake

Not sure why but I believe her writing starts on 12/7

Celia

Maybe Chelsea can do a Nick “do-over”? I mean, she spends every breathing moment with him. Where’s Connor?

Nanci

I know, Celia! Too weird the way Chelsea and Nick are constantly together, and
often with Christian and Faith, too, lately. They are suddenly this cozy little family
but with Connor nowhere in sight. Sure, Chelsea and Nick could use a new friend,
but this is way overboard!

Celia
Celia

@Nanci.
Hi,
Good to hear from you, my friend…..Poor Connor!! LOL.
I don’t know what the heck TPTB are trying to conjure up here. Are they preparing us for an Adam return, as I said to Timmm?
A romantic relationship between Chelsea and Nick would really complicate matters if Adam made an appearance.
Another reason, I think, is to make Chelsea an important character to the soap. She really has no relevance; other than being Connor’s mother: A NEWMAN. But, we never see him…HaHa. Strange, that!! Suddenly all the attention is on Christian and Faith!!!!

Celia
Celia

@Nanci.
Hi, Nanci,
I did respond to your post. But soon after, I upgraded my iPad ( not liking upgrade, at all), so, I don’t know if I erased it, or what.
Anyway, I find it strange, as well. This sudden coziness with Nick and children sans her own child, makes Chelsea seem unrealistic.
I think TPTB need to keep Chelsea on because Adam will be back. When he does return, he ill be faces with two huge shockers: Christian is alive and Chelsea and Nick are involved.
But, if we thought the Dylan and Nick court battle makes no sense; wait until Adam is back, and the real battle over the baby starts.
Thing is, I really think Nick is the bio father….thanks to Victor’s manipulations.

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I was thinking the same thing when I was watching the Friday December 2 episode. She has been so protective of Connor since Adam died. Practically joined herself to the hip with him. No all of a sudden she is bonding with Faith and Christian like she has all the free time in the world

Nanci
Nanci

Agree completely with your entire post, Celia. God, it is all too weird now and
Chelsea has become someone I dont much like anymore. At least before, she
was a great mom to Connor, and now seems oblivious. Dont remember her
even mentioning him lately. I also think Nick is Christian’s bio-dad. And at this
point, I dont even know how an Adam return would work as far as Chelsea
because she isnt much outwardly mourning him anymore. And would it be
yet another Oh my God, Adam youre alive! kind of reaction from Chelsea?
Been there, done that!

Celia
Celia

@Nanci.
Right? Well, one thing is for certain; we are talking about it….keeping us engaged in conversation.
This story will stagnate if someone’s feathers aren’t ruffled. Enter Adam. He must be brought back for drama, otherwise, this sorty is dead, as far as I am concerned. A love match between Nick and Chelses is neither palatable or appetizing.
Yesh..”He’s ALIVE” has been worked for a hundred years…..what else can they do?
The mystery needs to be resolved, albeit we are all sick of the same old same old.

alexis
alexis

chelsea should spend time with her son connor more. she spends time with nick more than sometime with connor. where does connor go when chelsea and nick are out. chelsea really should spend time with connor or bring him with them.that’s sad you don’t even see connor that much. does connor go with a babysitter maybe. you don’t see much of billy and victoria’s kids either. what’s the point of having younger actors play as connor and billy and victoria’s kids

alexis
alexis

there wasting the parents and the young actors time. so i heard cane and lily’s son charlie is being recast . is that true or not true that charlie is being recast

alexis

i agree with you about travis . they should take him off the show. nick is ok.

I could probably see Denyse Tontz [ex-Miranda, AMC] as a singer on Y&R

How about Taylor Swift!!!!????
I know, I know, she Will NEVER,EVER BE ON A SOAP!!!

I need to have Tom Pelphrey back on a soap, so he can be Marcus and Kristen Alderson can be Ivy as she is a singer as well as an actress.

Tom Pelphrey, yes.

Both Kristen Alderson and Brittany Underwood come to mind.

Celia

Yes…Liz, good choices, as well. Love both.

Claudio

Please no more newbies lol, bring back Dina Abbott Mergeron. Y&R need to cast Elizabeth Hubbard ex Lucinda Walsh ATWT to play Dina. Also I am glad that Judith Chapman is coming back as Gloria. I am very happy with that. She will be getting a storyline with Lauren and Michael. Judith first airdate is December 22, I cannot wait for the fireworks.

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I agree with you on the newbies Claudio. Maybe it won’t be so bad. As long as they aren’t anything like Stich and Luca. Anything will be better than seeing Hillary reading her GC Buzz comments and falling in love with herself. I am so loving and patiently waiting for the return of Gloria. Not to mention the fact that she is having a storyline with Lauren. Judith Chapman, and Tracey E. Bregman are long overdue to be back on the screen. I love how they interact with each other. And adding Christian LeBlanc and Greg Rikaart to the mix is happiness abound. If its not asking for to much, maybe we can have a Fen sighting for the holidays? Since they are looknig for a young female singer, I say Gloria should reincarnate Gloworm and turn into a sultry nightclub. Every event in town happens either at the coffee house or the athletic club. GC needs some new haunts. I loved when Gloria was briefly running Gloworm. I felt she was really in her element. And keeping in mind that Lauren is Jill’s sister and Gloria’s daughter-in-law, it would be fun to see two of John’s ex-wives sniping at eacn other from time to time. I say let the games begin!!!

Celia
Celia

Oh, soapqueenforever; tell me about it.
Stitch, Luca….you have just awakened a bitter taste in my mouth, LOL.
Every time I hear GC Buzz, I get a sinus headache. Now they have little Faith mentioning that ‘great institution’ of complete nonsense. Out of the mouth of babes!!!!!…..as the adage goes….

michael
michael

OMG that is a brilliant idea to have Hubbard play Dina!!

toscanti

I completely agree, or even Eileen Fulton ex Lisa McColl ATWT.

Celia
Celia

LOL, Claudio. You and I so desperately want these ladies back on Y& R. I do believe we talked about this before….Plus, “Vivian” on Days. Deja-vu? LOL.
I wish the writers would listen to us, my friend.

Claudio
Claudio

I agree with you Celia, the writers need to be fired lol. we can take over Celia my friend. Vivian my madame needs to come back on Days, and Elizabeth Hubbard as the new Dina Abbott on Y&R.

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I would love to see Eileen Fulton and Elizabeth Hubbard back 8n screen as well. If memory and back history of the Abbott family serves me correctly, Dina isn’t Ashley’s real mother. So my idea is have one play Dina and one play Ashley’s realcm mother. But I am uundecided as to who should play who. Ashley needs a good story line.Her talents are being wasted as a sounding board for Billy and Jack

kevin
kevin

Soapqueenforever, if my memory serves correctly, lol…Dina is Ashley’s real mother for John isn’t her real father. I remember when Ashley was dating Eric (Brian Matthews) and Eric happened to also be involved with Dina.

Roxanne Robinson
Roxanne Robinson

Ivy should be played by Lea Michelle. No one comes in mind for Marcus.

jake hernandez
jake hernandez

Lea Michelle isn’t taking time off of her network TV show or movies to play a new role on Y&R; maybe someone like Kristen Alderson who can act and sing who does daytime would work

Celia

I love Lea, too, Roxanne. She’s a little older, but, I doubt that matters much on soaps.

It’s about time that Y&R gets YOUNG in the cast ..
When Y&R 1st started a majority of the main cast were actually young.
Also there is a great need for new characters and new stories.
It’s a bit tiring seeing the same 12? faces every single day for decades.

New Young people New stories. will be a good thing.

Decades and decades of Billy and Vicitora and Sharon and Nick and Jack and Phyllis are never ending recycling for decades…
Looking forward to some new and hope they put it front.

Looking forward to Mals takeover..

Yeah, Suoo. I thought you knew everything.
One positive thing to mention; Tristan Rogers Tweeted that he will be making a lot more appearances this month. I am hoping the new writing regime will appreciate this gem of an actor.

hi Addison ..
I wish I did lol
I do know Mal has been producing ect for awhile now, I meant the old new writer.
I hope she makes Sharon hang! Sharon needs to pay and pay hard. I have no pity for the character LOL ..
It will be interesting to see how the new writer will end up in 6 months.

Geena

I’m also tired of those recycled couples I no longer care about. I am fast forwarding through all of them which is basically the whole show at this point. The show desperately needs young blood. All the other soaps have a good set of young actors except for Y&R where almost every character is 40+.

they should recast adam newman.

Corbin Bleu , ex-Jeffrey King, OLTL would be perfect

Magneto

Please enough with the new characters Y&R. How about shoring up what they have and getting rid of the dead weight and getting back to good storytelling. Instead of rehashing old storylines that characters have had over and over again. Y&R has become a real madhouse storyline wise. Characters like Victor and Nikki are the worst. I mean what does Nikki suffer from Stockholm syndrome or something? Or is it pure selective memory? When I hear her justify Victors behavior or blasting Sharon, I think to myself; “wasn’t this girl a stripper who gave up here child ,alcoholic, and had numerous affairs and marriages?” Yet she constantly slams Sharon for her choices and the girl is no saint. Instead of the writers giving Sharon some dialogue to slam her back with, it’s like the characters just get away with being all self righteous and no one calls them out for it. Come on writers, use the rich history of the show to tell new stories that push the show forward and stop adding useless characters.

Timmm
Timmm

Nikki is a rich snob, Sharon should spit on her!

Celia

LOL, Timmmy. What are the similarities between Nikki and Chelsea?
Sound familiar? Both these women could be straight out of Dickens’ OLIVER TWIST, under the tutelage of Fagin.
Soooo sanctimonious!!!!
Do the writers expect us to forget from whence Nikki hails?

Magneto

So agree with you!

Mary SF

and so it begins—- every new writer creates new characters to “interact” with the vets, but eventually the newbies take over like Dylan, Stitch, Avery, Joe, Hilary etc— the new characters are always a flash in the pan– sizzle for a season, then fall flat over time– personally they should be is fleshing out the established character’s extended families– why can’t Kyle be a dashing playboy turned journalist– or recast Summer so she can become a singer instead bringing on a new character Ivy—-sigh— but it is what it is, as long as the stories and writing get better I can embrace new characters as flavoring — not the main dish.

Shades of the Brookes clan from yesteryear. The newspaper the singing and Plano playing..I’m not sure what Sally Sussman is leading into I’m a bit skeptical and also hopeful at the same time. While next Wednesday there’ll be change..I don’t expect to really comment until at least six months into her tenure..well see

I agree Mary but right now their isn’t a man on the canvas for Ashley as for the young girl I’m not sure what that is about ? That is the way I feel about the baby everyone is fussing over a character that wasn’t needed just another quick romance for Nick I will give them a chance but a lot of work has to be done .

Geena
Geena

Much of the problem lies in the fact that the characters are all related to each other. I agree, I’d rather see Kyle, Fenmore, Chance, Mac, Scotty. Before they even create new characters. Heaven help us if the singing takes over.

Mo

Not really looking forward to singing on the show. The roles don’t excite me right now.

Celia

I watched episodes of Patty Weaver, as per my grandmother. She was both on DOOL and Y&R.
Her voice was spectacular….so, if the singer’s voice has that certain nuance; if the voice is powerful enough; if the singer can convey a message through dong, I am all for it.
We have to wait and see, Mo. who know? We may be pleasantly surprised.

Ron

Did Gina Romalotti ever marry? I can’t remember. If so, maybe IVY can be her daughter.

Celia

@Ron.
Hi Ron,
What a great idea! As Gina Roma’s daughter, Ivy would have ties to Y& R.
I believe Gina married someone named Clint?

k/kay
k/kay

She married an ex con named Clint Radison no children. Clint Radison was the one who found Marge Katherine’s look a like to steal all Katherine’s money. Some great storylines back then. Gina came to town fresh out of prison years earlier and fell in love with Lauren’s dad but Lauren’s mother came to town and Lauren and her broke them up. That is why it is so stupid that they made Jill/Lauren’s sister because Jill was the same age basically as Lauren’s dad.

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I forgot all about Patty. She wa s also Danny Romalati’s sister and she owned a restaurant where she would sing whenever the mood struck her. If memory serves, she did have a nice voice

Geena

The singing was fine in the 80s and the 90s but it comes across dated & cheesy now. Days tried it with Claire Brady but they’ve since moved on.

Mo

I thought Claire was going to sing at Thanksgiving, but fortunately, she did not.

Dont need a new female singer UNLESS she is singing at Gloria and Jeff’s new restaurant!

New male cast member? Look now further than the talented Brandon Barash!

Soaphound

I’m with you, Timm. Brandon and Robert Scott Wilson are my top choices. Though the singing thing doesn’t thrill me.

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I’m all for your idea timmm. As I said in what I posted above, GC needs a new nightclub. And who better to run it than Gloria. She coul reincarnate Gloworm into a sultry nightclub, and Colin and Jeffrey could have shady business dealings in the back offices. And than Michael could use his legal skills to keep the place open

Timmm
Timmm

I love Colin and Jeffrey in cahoots!

Iakovos

Promising. A new writing team will bring in new characters… and escort others to the door. Seems the media game in Genoa City will heat up, and I like that. As for a singer, well… one of the great joys of Y&R in the past was the music. Danny. Gina. Lauren. I liked that side of the show. Added some pizzazz to the dull (lately) corporate goings-on with Newman Enterprises and Chancellor Industries (What is it exactly they do?). I would like to see some real model/cosmetics action on the J’Abot front. Am looking forward to changes as the winter months pass.

kevin
kevin

I agree Iakovos…I miss the era with Gina/Danny/Lauren singing…Patty Weaver is a superb singer. I remember Patty being on Days before Y&R…a very talented lady.

Tani Sterling
Tani Sterling

Not sure what you mean by the “media game” but would hope it is perhaps an expansion of legitimate journalism, so to speak. Playing with this a bit, a powerful local paper with a rich enough owner could introduce an interesting presence. Genoa City needs more than two families.

The music can work. I remember.

Of course, Rob Wilson….why didn’t I think of him!!!!! He’d be great in any role.
I hope he wins the Emmy. He does deserve it.

I hope he doesn’t get overlooked, Celia. Sometimes great work just falls through the cracks and I’d hate for Robert to be forgotten. I don’t know what this says about me, who hates violent scenes, but Rob turned me on even when he was beating up Chad. Must be the muscles..

Celia
Celia

Rob Wilson is very charismatic….and, oh, so sexy. He has that quiet, mysterious way about me that is sooo enigmatic…draws me in.
As yourself, I’m not fond of violent scenes ( he played the part of the fiend sooooo well), but, we can separate the actor from his role, yes?
Yeah!! Those muscles make it easy to forgive….SWOON!!

Yes Michael, I am happy that you agree with me. Elizabeth Hubbard is a terrific actress and would be great as the new Dina Abbott Mergeron. Imagine the fireworks with Dina Jill and Gloria.

Just not interested in additional newbies. Would rather see solid storylines with current

Mandy Moore … She does a marvelous job on “This is us” ….

Ron

For those fans of American Idol, and those from the Chicagoland/Genea City landscape, I recommend Haley Reinhart ( a couple of seasons past) for the role of Ivy. Not only is she a terrific singer, she’s bubbly, cute and sultry whenever she wants to be. She’s about 25 yrs old.

I’ll reflect on the role of the journalist, but I’d sure like to see FRESH FACES for these roles, not actors from other soaps, etc.

I’m excited about these two characters because the show could use stories that focus on news events and might even clean up the mess the current writers have made with Hillary and her attempt at broadcasting. From Neville’s medical nymph to this! Yikes. It should be so easy getting lucrative (well, maybe not) careers with no prior experience. Maybe a college degree isn’t really that necessary. And it’s about time we returned to some quality singing sessions on the program.

Sal Stowers would be perfect or an unknown who can act & sing.

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.

As fans of director and actress Kimberly McCullough know, earlier this week she announced that she would be directing an episode of the the re=branded and renamed ‘Rosanne-less’ series, The Conners.  She originally shared the news of getting the nod to direct the hit comedy sitcom with a photo of the famous Conner kitchen with the words “Yup”.
