Anthony Morina (EP) and Josh Griffith (Co-EP and Head Writer) of The Young and the Restless have issued a joint statement on the casting of Sasha Calle as the new ‘Supergirl’ in the upcoming DC Universe film, The Flash.

Y&R discovered Calle for the role of Lola Rosales on the CBS daytime drama series, where she became an integral part of the Latino family drama in Genoa City.

Morina and Griffith shared: “On behalf of everyone at The Young and the Restless, we’d like to congratulate Sasha Calle on making history and being chosen to play the first Latina ‘Supergirl’. The role of ‘Supergirl’ is a perfect fit for someone of Sasha’s immense talent and we wish her all the best as she takes on this groundbreaking role.”

The two executives do not however address at this juncture what will happen to the role of Lola, when Calle steps away from the role.  Will they recast Lola, or write her out?

Let us know if you think the show should recast Lola, and your thoughts on the joint statement congratulating Sasha from Tony and Josh in the comment section below.

Here’s what I think If the role of Lola Rosales is being recast I would Lola Rosales go in a different direction I would like to see Lola Rosales make a change from being a business owner of a restaurant to become a successful fashion designer in the corporate world and have a romance with Theo Vanderway or a returning existing character or a new character or you can put Sasha Calle off contract and put Sasha Calle on recurring staus

She doesn’t need to be written out. She’s hardly on screen now and doesn’t have her own story. Lola can just be in the kitchen. That’s all.

Exactly! They screwed up her story line a long time ago.

I would love to see Young and the Restless recast Lola Rosales in a new direction and maybe work together with Phyllis and take over the hotel

When I first saw the headline, I thought “YES” they’ve finally fired Griffith! Then I finished reading the headline and got so disappointed. This is literally the worst this show has ever been. I’ve watched since 1990. It is even worse than the Lynn Marie Latham destruction of 2007 and all the subsequent writers. While there have been a few bright spots and moments (although fairly rare) since 2008, this is the absolute travesty. Boring. Boring. Boring. There’s almost no conflict (and what little there is I could care less about); it is 100% directionless and spends too much time… Read more »

These two fools need to go, they are ruining Y&R Funny that they WILL NOT talk about why they let Donny Boaz go, a horrible decision, CBS please get rid of these fools PLEASE! Bring someone else to rock Y&R. It’s NOT rocking, it is boring with the same storylines from 2010. The cast deserves better, the Adam storyline is so 2005, it’s 2021.

Run don’t walk never look back and Congrats! I hear the newest trick these two bozo’s are pulling is a romance with PB who is 67 and CH who is 30! Yes we all want to watch a old man a long time vet come off as a dirty old man ! Ugh ! Now Bergman talk your way out of this crap you know years ago when you wanted no part of the storyline with having a son Keemo

Doug Davidson reduced on YR is almost getting me to not watch. What I would do is have the Vets in play 2-3 times a week with their offsprings. Paul needs his daughter back. There really is no reason why YR had to reduce Paul. Nick looks bored in his scenes. Even though Sharon has a lot going on. Her Marriage with Rey is not a priority for her. I think that YR should recalibrate. Sasha will do great. Every new actor that has left YR did better on their own, than if they stayed. MM as Amanda is the… Read more »

The Adam and Chelsea story is creepy, the writers are making Sharon look pathetic and the worst mother in history. If anyone else gets fired, please make it Victoria!

I feel the show should recast Lola Rosales even though Sasha Calle has been cast as Supergirl I think The Young and the Restless should take Lola Rosales in a new direction by either reuniting with Theo or ex Kyle or reunite Lola with a existing character by bring back to the canvas or reunite Lola with a new character I want The Young and the restless find an actress the same way they find Sasha to search for a Latina actress in the recast of Lola Rosales on the Young and the restless I hope that comes true if… Read more »

After speculation a few years back that at some point, Milo Ventimiglia would find his way onto the hit comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, that would reunite him with his former Gilmore Girls boss, Amy Sherman-Palladino, now appears to be coming true!

News out of TV Line reports that Milo will guest star in season four of the series.  However, details of who he will play are being kept under wraps.

Ventimiglia will be the second cast member from This Is Us to appear on Maisel, following Sterling K. Brown who appeared in season 3.

The fourth season of the Amazon Prime series has been in production since January – after plenty of stops and starts due to Covid-19 and restrictions.

Gilmore Girl fans remember Ventimiglia as Jess Mariano, the troubled love interest of Rory Gilmore.

Ventimiglia will also wrap his time as Jack on This Is Us, when the show finishes its upcoming sixth and final season of the NBC drama.
