One of the true fan favorites of daytime drama, The Young and the Restless Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), posted a picture of himself on social media on Tuesday, while updating his followers on his broken elbow.

Goddard is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow after injuring himself late last week during a fight scene, while taping an upcoming episode of the number one soap opera.

But as the actor related, it’s not been an easy road for him thus far. Today, Daniel shared an injury update his facebook page: “My elbow is still broken and hasn’t been fixed yet because it’s still too swollen to operate… The break is still bleeding out as you can see by the color of my fingers… but I’m at The Young and the Restless today filming because we have so much to do for our huge November sweeps story lines! I have surgery scheduled for tomorrow morning where they will screw and wire my elbow back together.  I wanted to say thank you! You have been such a source of comfort, support and strength over the last few days and I truly and dearly appreciate every single message wishing me well. You have no idea know how much it means to me. I love you!”

Hopefully Wednesday, Daniel will be able to have his surgery to put his elbow back together!  What did you think of Goddard’s heartfelt message?  Share your continued well-wishes for Daniel in the comment section below.

I have always enjoyed the post from Daniel. He shares his family, his thoughts, but never steps on ayones toes. I wish him the best…..prayers sent for a quick recovery.

Daniel, I’m sending my heartfelt sorrow to you and also my positive thoughts throughout your surgery and recovery. I hope your experience during all this turns out to be as painless as possible. I’m sending prayers your way. Take care! Love ya! God Bless you.

Sorrow? Prayers? The man is not dying for Christ’s sake–he has a broken elbow!

Geez, Harry have soe sympathy! My son broke his upper arm last summer in a bad fall, 5 fractures, surgery, out of work 6 weeks, lots of pain, loss of wages. Its a big deal.


sending prayers for a speedy & complete recovery………………………

Good luck to him!

Joe Clark kicked your azz and now he will be taking your kids to Disneyland! Good luck Daniel. It sucks!

Oh Hell no he didn’t! While he may not have raped Avery, he snapped and tried to rape Cane. But he was not Abel.
Cane may have a broken elbow, but Joe is in a coma.

Oh no he didn’t! Joe didn’t rape Avery, but he snapped and tried to rape Cane.
But he was not Abel.
In a coma in ICU.

Thats good!

Oh no he didn’t!! Joe flipped out and attempted to what he was accused of by Avery on Cane. But he was not Abel.
In coma.

Sorry, Josie is taking over and did not mean to pull a NLG

Prayers and best wishes for Daniel, for an easy surgery and fast recovery.
He is one of my favorites.

Praying for him today!!! Hopefully he’ll get some time off to spend with his family and relax and heal.

Like the bloke and all but why is he making such a big deal about a broken elbow?
I am going to start calling him Camille.

Since he has to have surgery I would say it is a big deal.

I wish him the best of luck!! In the words of the orthopedic surgeon who operated on my shattered elbow 3 years ago, “Elbows are a bitch!” (Please don’t anyone take offense; I’m merely quoting him.) It will be awhile before Mr. Goddard is tying his own neckties again. Three years later I still can’t straighten my arm completely, but I’ve regained most of my range of motion.

I’m not a doctor, I don’t even play one on TV (ancient Peter Bergman joke), but based on my personal experience this may be an injury from which a full recovery is impossible.

Good luck Daniel on your surgery, hope you feel better real soon. You’re such a talented actor and capable of so much . Take care, you’re such a gracious man and a joy to your fans. Much love and take care.

So sorry to hear about your accident. I will say a prayer for you and your surgery. I love the character of Daniel and you do a great job at Y&R.

Matt Bomer Reveals After Exiting ‘Guiding Light’ He Lost the Role of ‘Superman’ Due to His Sexuality

During the June 10th edition of the Hollywood Reporter Awards Chatter Podcast, former Guiding Light star, Matt Bomer (ex-Ben Reade) revealed the role that got away, and how his exit from the CBS soap opera was precipitated to accommodate his burgeoning movie career, only to have his sexuality wind up costing him the part.

Bomer was seemingly set to play the Man of Steel, Superman, in a motion picture version in the early 2000’s, and as he tells it to Scott Feinberg during the podcast, things went awry.

“I went in on a cattle call for Superman, and then it turned into a month-long audition experience where I was auditioning again and again and again, and flying out to New York and doing chemistry reads, an flying out to LA doing chemistry reads, flying back to New York, flying back to LA to do a screen-test,” recalled Bomer. “And it looked like I was the director’s choice for the role. This is a very early iteration of Superman, written by JJ Abrams called Superman Flyby and it never came to light.”

While Matt was going through the Superman audition process he was still under contract at Guiding Light. Bomer described how he was let go from the soap: “Concurrently on Guiding Light, there was a killer in town, and so I think they needed somebody to pin it all on someone. So, I think the executive producer very kindly wanted to free me up just in case this job came through and said, ‘Hey, you’re gonna be the killer. We’re writing you off the show. Go with my blessing.’ I guess, I basically got fired, but in a generous way.”

Bomer had good reason to believe he was on his way, and the role of Superman was his after he had signed a three picture deal with Warner Brothers. As to why the part of Superman never came to pass, Bomer believes it was due to his sexuality (Later, Matt would come out publicly in 2012).

During the podcast, Matt explained, “Yeah, that’s my understanding That was a time in the industry when something like that could still really be weaponized against you. How and why and who I don’t know. But yeah, that’s my understanding.”

While Matt has not yet played Superman, he has done stellar work in major projects including: Fellow Travelers, Magic Mike, White CollarIn Time, The Normal Heart to name but a few.

What do you think of Guiding Light making Ben that killer in order to free up Bomer to leave the CBS soap to go and become a star in Hollywood and potentially play Superman, only for his sexuality to take the role away from him by the powers-that-be? Comment below.

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.

Bryan Craig Teases ‘Who Could It Be’ in Response to General Hospital’s Returning Mystery Man

Since General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini dropped a major bombshell of what’s to come on the long-running daytime drama at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the guessing games have begun of just what former GH actor is returning to the cast this summer.

Speaking with ABC’s On The Red Carpet, as previously reported, Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

That has led to major online speculation that it could be anyone from: Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky), Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky), Ted King (ex-Lorenzo Alcazar), Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer), and Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) among others, that might be the gentlemen being referenced.

On Wednesday, responding to a post on the subject from Soap Opera Digest, Bryan Craig commented, “Who could it be ….”  Now, clearly he can just be having some fun with the situation to throw fans off-track, or he might be giving us a tease of what’s to come.

Before exiting GH, the actor won two Daytime Emmys for his performances as Morgan Corinthos in 2016 and 2017.  Craig appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared most recently in Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel, plus several independent films.

The character of Morgan was killed-off the show when Olivia Jerome set a bomb that exploded in the car that Morgan got into, but was meant to kill Olivia’s brother Julian Jerome. Morgan’s death caused a huge split in the relationship of Carly and Sonny.

So, do you think Bryan Craig is just having fun with the audience, or do you think it’s possible he is the big return Frank Valentini is talking about? Comment below.
