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.

i am so glad for micheal – he is so talented…….too bad y&r didn’t see it that way – they never utilized his talent.

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…………..

Scandal

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
