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?

Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
