Those missing Daniel Romalotti in Genoa City and The Young and the Restless can now follow him to his new role on Venice, and no this is not Crystal Chappell’s web series, but another series with the same title about two rival families living in the famed California beach town and the forbidden, dangerous romance that emerges between them.   Yes, it sounds very soapy to us too!

According to TV Line, Michael Graziadei will play the role of  Josh, a rising star poised to take over the company belonging to his father Gordy Nance played by Bruce Greenwood!  Thus far also cast in the pilot are Jennifer Beals and Odette Annabel.

ABC is calling this one a “Romeo and Juliet” type soap from Without a Trace creator, Byron Balasco!

What do you think about Graz getting a new role? And the fact that the series is called Venice? Weigh-in!

I’m with you Darlene. I don’t watch ABC since the “Great Soap Cancellation of 2011” either. It does sound good though.

I knew Michael Graziadei would be snapped up quickly. I loved him as Daniel on Y&R.

It was exactly what I was thinking when I was reading this- too bad it is on ABC, because so many have vowed never to watch anything but GH on that network.

I loved Daniel with Amber the best than I really hoped Daisy would stay on the show. I loved that Daisy was the new Phyllis. 🙂

Good for HIM!

I saw Michael Graziadei in one episode of AMERICAN HORROR STORY a few years ago (too creepy a show for me), but recently he did an episode of JUSTIFIED and was very unlike Daniel Romalotti (he was beating up on the woman who played Courtney on SANTA BARBARA and even threw her over his shoulder).

This guy really has some talent and I hope this pilot will springboard him into a bigger television or movie career, though I miss him on Y&R.

Ethel,

It was actually Michael’s decision to leave Y&R. He had been getting so much work outside of Y&R when he was still on the show and I have to believe that after 8 years with Y&R, he’d gotten the necessary training he needed to succeed in prime-time and movies. I wish him all the best.

yes i do know it was his decision to leave – i am just saying it is y&r’s loss because he was leading man material but wasn’t used in that capacity…………..

It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
