I hope this means he’s being recast on Y&R. A non-speaking part as vampire food is the best career choice for this guy, at least until he invests in some serious acting lessons.
And “Carmine” can go with him and be dessert. This show needs some serious recasting in the younger set.

Does this portend of things to come for Kyle in Genoa City? While I do nto agree with the SORAS of the character, I would like to see Jack Abbott be able to have some kind of relationship with his son. He is the only 100 percent Abbott grandchild on the canvas anymore to be invovled with business and such. Billy’s baby is an infant… for now. (You will recall Ashley is not a true Abbott though raised by John who I do not think ever knew the truth.) And Abby is a Newman, too.

Can’t wait for the Vamp Diaries’ new season! Vampire Elena better choose Damon! I hope Caroline remains with Tyler and not Klaus!

TAKE HIM, PLEASE!! This kid cannot act!!! Worst addition to “Y & R” ever – bring back the younger Kyle and de-SORAS him!!!

I agree. Do you also see the resemblance to Michael Muhney? It is so obvious on the previous page where Blake Hood’s story is just below Michael Muhney’s.

Why oh WHY did they cast this guy when he looks so much like Adam? I have to keep a scorecard when they are both on the screen or I get confused. 🙂

Bart stole my line! 😉 Such great news! I sure hope he departs for some other show and soon!!! I will never understand why they hired someone who looks so much like MM. Not to mention it certainly can’t be because of his acting talent.

Best wishes, Blake. Just want you to get your training elsewhere.

The character should never have been SORAS’ed in the first place, BJ – MAB has screwed up so many timelines because of unnecessary SORAS’ing!!

Wow! People are just so negative. Disappointed when all soap fans do is complain and criticize.
I think it’s great that he got the part on Vampire Diaries! It’s a popular show and that’s a pretty big deal. I think it’s a boon to soaps when actors from soaps get parts on primetime as well and can show they are just as good!
And I think Blake is adorable as Kyle. I love the scenes with him and Jack. I think he could be written for better- give him something more to do.

I hope he stays there. He has not been an asset on Y&R.

From what I have read, he will only have a short stay on The Vampire Diaries. He’s most likely been hired to be an inevitable victim as most don’t make it out of Mystic Falls alive. Plus this show has way too many characters on it.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
