Even when you are an actress who has appeared in countless primetime television series, when you get the call that you are headed to Genoa City, it’s big news!

Soap opera super fan, actress Yvette Nicole Brown is getting an opportunity to mix it up with some of the biggest characters on The Young and the Restless when she shoots her guest appearance this week on the number one daytime drama series.

The Community and Odd Couple star revealed to TV Line, who broke the news of her upcoming appearance, “The people at CBS found out that I’m a freakin’ fangirl. And they were like, ‘Do you want to go to Genoa City?’ And I’m like, ‘Um, yeah.’ It was probably one of the most exciting calls I have ever received. The only thing that could equal it is if I were to get a call to be on Sesame Street.”

On Y&R, Brown will play a reporter in scenes with Peter Bergman (Jack), Gina Tognoni (Phyllis), and Jason Thompson (Billy).  She shared: “All I know is something is happening with Jack, Billy, and Phyllis that’s a big deal, and I’m reporting on it.”

Brown’s episode of Y&R will air on Monday, April 4th.   That is three days before The Odd Couple begins its second season on CBS.  The sitcom returns Thursday, April 7 at 8:30PMEST/7:3oPMCT, replacing Life in Pieces.

So, what do you think of Yvette Nicole Brown getting the chance to share scenes with Gina Tognoni, Jason Thompson, and Peter Bergman on an upcoming episode of Y&R? Comment below!

If the soaps sunk half as much time into finding talented writers as they do stunt casting the genre would be in much better shape. I have never liked stunt casting since the days of Carol Burnett as ALL MY CHILDREN’s Verla Grubbs — it takes me right out of the story because I know these celebrities aren’t sticking around for long so their scenes won’t have much gravity or impact.

No different than a soap star making a guest appearance on a primetime series…we congratulate them so i have no problem when someone outside the soaps make a soapy guest shot…jmho.

For my money the best celebrity soap stints have been those featuring mature actors who brought their talent to roles that were long-term and whose characters had an impact on long term story. Standouts for me were Barbara Rush as Nola Orsini on ALL MY CHILDREN, Ava Gardner as Ruth Galveston on KNOTS LANDING, Farley Grainger as Earl Mitchell on AS THE WORLD TURNS, and Kim Hunter as Nola Madison on EDGE OF NIGHT.

I look at it like this: Personality-wise, give me Yvette Nicole Brown over that Sheryl Underwood any day.

Just saying……….

Good God, WHY???

This stunt casting stuff is ridiculous and completely worthless (other than the blatently obvious goal of CBS’ cross promoting the night-time comedy on which this woman appears). It adds NOTHING to Y&R — which, frankly, needs a LOT of help, especially in the writing department.

Of all the things that Y&R needs, I definitely would NOT include this type of stuff on the list.

That’s the first thing that popped into my head, too…WHYguest appearance? No of fence to Ms. Brown, but, I consider someone famous to make guest appearances. She looks familiar, but, I have never heard of her. Weird, very weird. What’s up, Y&R?

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
