Good news for Greg and its good he is staying on Y&R. We already lost Harding, we cannot afford to lose Fish to!

So glad to see this handsome and talented man have an opportunity outside of Genoa City. Rikaart has weathered all the silliness thrown at him and Kevin through the years, and evenin the midst of such, proves watchable and interesting. The Kevin and Mariah scenes are among my favorites on Y&R. A couple made for adventure, humor, and passion!

Dude…..He’s been Front Line since the day he first appeared on The Y&R Canvas. Keep him busy with a few time off days on Y/R…..so that he doesn’t burn out

This double duty will only help the viewer ship for the other show. Major Crimes looks like a great show from the commercials…I’ve not taken the time to get into the series…just saw a little of maybe three shows before Kevin Bacons’ Wife left the show.

I love television (would love too be an actor on Y&R) and enjoy being entertained by good acting. Major Crimes has that talent…..but…..Mr. Greg Rikaart would only add more unique style and grace.

I Love Greg Rikaart…..When Y&R revealed that “Kevin Fisher” & “Michael Baldwin” were brothers…..AWESOME.

I’ve been a fan of The Young & The Restless since Day One. Mr. Rikaart is truly one of the best talents to walk that stage.

Best Of Luck Greg Rikaart.

It looks like a very good fitting role for him and multi-episode.
Nice to see CBS is letting the soap cast do other projects on other networks.

Greg is an awesome actor. Love him on Y&R. He can be serious or comical. I could watch him all day. When he was hiding from Terrible Tom in the closet, his acting was at its best. I totally cried for him. He is just one super guy and one super actor. I adore him and will be watching Major Crimes.

I live in France and I do not know if I could ever see this series but although it is I’m happy for Greg Rickart which is a great actor. I love the character of Kevin, although at this moment in our french episodes I find it silly with Chloe. I do not like this couple. I loved the couple and if Kevinlena Diana Degarmo could one day return to Y & R would be great to rebuild their relationship, this time with a real shared romance.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
