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…………..

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
