When you’re hot, you’re hot!  The Young and the Restless Justin Hartley (Adam Newman) who has turned in one riveting performance after another on the number one soap opera, just landed a key role in an upcoming drama pilot for NBC that sounds quite intriguing.

According to Deadline, Harley along with Mandy Moore (Red Band Society), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes),  Sterling Brown, and Ron Cephas Jones (Mr. Robot) are the first actors to be cast in the new pilot from Dan Fogelman.  The untitled dramedy is made up of a unique ensemble of characters all born on the same day.

Hartley will play the role of  Kevin, a handsome and successful television actor with an underlining boredom in his ultimate bachelor life.

So, what do you think of Justn’s new role?  Sound like a perfect fit? At present time, Justin shooting the pilot will not affect his role on Y&R.

Maybe he can continue to do both but maybe the rumor is right…JT-GHs Patrick will become the new Adam but itll be a miscast if true!

The rumor is JT is wanted for the role of Billy not Adam. If JH did actually re-sign for 2 more years. I assume he would of gotten a lot outs to do outside projects. Kind of like what Billy Miller wanted and was denied. If it does go to series be interesting to see what happens. I wouldn’t mind a return of MM. He is still my favorite Adam.

You could be right, Apple, albeit I think Jason T is all wrong for the role of Billy. I said this before: I theorized that Gabe is really alive….enter Jason T with a face-change.

I agree!!! Justin is great but would be great to see MM again in a great acting role! He is missed!

Yeah, Jimmy. It sounds like he is. I got scared there for a minute. I thought he’d be leaving…whew, that was close.

I got the characters mixed up…i meant Billy…im only an occasional viewer of Y&R but find myself watching more lately

“…I got scared there for a minute. ”

1.. I love that you said this…. I go their often


relief mode

he’s carrying the show plus!

there’s so much passion to mine in this genre

I think the rumor about JT is that he is being cast as Billy Abbott. I hope Justin is allowed to do both … Given that the reason Billy Miller left Y&R was because the powers that be would not allow him to do both and it obviously was a huge mistake. Let’s hope that they learned by their mistake.

Billy Miller, I do not think, wanted to do a dual role. I believe, he wanted to pursue other projects while on Y&R.

That’s suppose to be Billy,

Patrick is going to be the new Billie Abbott

I think Jason Thompson would be a great recast for Adam. Not that Justin Hartley isn’t doing a terrific job. I’d hate to see Justin go. But, if he wants to move on with his in career, so be it and good luck to him. Some people have suggested Jason as a recast for Billy. I feel that would be a mistake. I don’t think Jason is right for Billy.

I truly – wish – I could have seen; Jason Thompson… when he debuted on GH

pre; Robin

when I read how dastardly flirtatious man on his own… LOL made the ladies swoon; men envied;

could this be where Y&R is coming from… that Jason Thompson… could be the man… again ! that fans of him… have wanted all along for his character after Robin left ?

i sure would have liked seeing his strong masculine side… that I missed out on… because AMC was my choice

so… if he does go to Y&R… as Billy…

I think he has all the traits they are looking for… can he bring all this

from what I’ve read… and fan recall

it certainly would be fun… dang ! I’m sure Jason Thompson is just chomping on the bit… at the starting gate

The article states he intends to do both shows.

I sure hope so, we got lucky with this recast, very few turn out to be THE ONE. Look at Kyle and Billy, they can’t find a good Kyle to save themselves, and I doubt they’ll ever find anyone to take Billy Miller’s place.
I understand Justin wanting to branch out for his career, that’s what it’s all about, but I sure will miss him if he goes, he’s the best.

I disagree Jim. Jason Thompson would be closer to Michael Muhney’s Adam than Justin. However, Jason isnt as dark as Adam is. Maybe they soften him? Jason is a good actor who can hold his own so I wouldnt panic if he were the new Adam. Much better than if he were casted as Billy.

Hmmmm, Timmm. It would certainly be interesting to see Jason Thompson as a blonde.

No, no. He is staying on as Adam. He has signed on for a two year contract, and hopefully he will stay longer then that as well

Agreed, Diane.

Good for Justin..
Primetime is the ticket out and up..
strange CBS would let JH roam to NBC , but Sony would it seems.

((There has been soap casting rumors, one was, JH was leaving Y&R, but that does not seem as fact..
One rumor I hope is fact;
Michael Muhney to GH ..

su, it’s possible this IS a Sony pilot. They are very loyal to their “family.” They have kept Wesley Snipes working all these years through his legal troubles by giving him work at Screen Gems (I know I used to work there) and now he has his own show, THE PLAYER, on NBC Thursdays. They did the same with Nicolas Cage and Steven Segal.

I pray Muhney goes to GH!

Doing a pilot and having that pilot picked up and put on the air are two different things. However it does make me nervous when I hear of soap actors doing pilots because it usually means they are not fully committed to daytime. Whether they want to take their careers to the next level or worry daytime is dying they always have one foot out the door. The reasons actors like Susan Lucci, Jeanne Cooper and the like are so beloved by soap fans is because they stayed with daytime because they wanted to not because they felt they had to. But it is his life and if the show is okay with him doing pilots knowing the risk the pilot could be picked up, so be it. But it would be a shame to recast Adam again, but if they do let’s hope they find someone who really wants to be there for the long haul.

Yes, Susan Lucci STAYED, but she had many, many side jobs. I recall many made-for-TV movies. Hopefully IF and it is a big IF, Justin’s pilot is brought to series, that he will be allowed to do both.

Happy for him but I sure hope he stays with Y and R, and just
does both!

He’s always belonged in primetime. Loved him on Mistresses, and they should have kept his character and Joss together. Wishing him lots of luck with the new show. I’ll be watching.

Justin Hartley wasn’t going to stay on Y&R for an extended number of years. He came from Primetime and he was destined to return. If NBC picks up the show, say so long to nuAdam. Will Phelps recast Jason Thompson in that role? Who will be the nunuBilly now that Burgess Jenkins is leaving? Looks like Y&R is back to 2014 when Miller & Muhney left.

Before everyone starts the big brou-haha that he’s leaving, keep in mind:

Being hired for a pilot ≠ the show will be picked up and Justin will leave Y&R.

You need to wait until after the new year before we know what this all means.

Just saying….

Good point Jules.

Is JH allowed to do a primetime series on NBC and a daytime soap on CBS?


Love him!!! The best addition to Y & R .

justin’s acting ability is off the charts – he will do well in whatever he does………

Good job Justin. You cannot hold talent down! I knew this would happen. He has prime time exposure so this isnt shocking. I say the same for Billy Miller over at GH. Just when we get use to Jason being back Billy Miller will be long gone! You cannot hold talent down!

I don’t want him to leave Y&R!!!!!!

Thats great & I will for sure watch anything he is in. I thought I would never accept anyone taking the part of Adam, but he didnt take long to make a big fan of his. Love him as Adam


Nice !

Daniel Cosgrove played the darker masculine tough misguided ? man… easily

it was apparent, when he had scenes with Clyde, Andre, and even Bo

if he stops the smirks ??? he played embarrassed and came off as a little unsure of himself…as well he should… with aplomb!

which just shows… if DC acted… sure of himself… and put his reel first… then we’d have no choice but to dance on his own terms

Daniel Cosgrove made a very likeable character (Aiden) that reels all the passion needed for Adam

he’s worth any consideration… he displayed a lot of emotion

The lifeboats are filling up quick….

This does not surprise me at all. Justin can act circles around a lot of his fellow actors. This is hardly the end of the jobs for this guy. I would bet down the road he hits movies at the theater,I can see him act with the best of them. Really can’t you see him in MI movies with T. Cruise. I’ll tell you if Jeremy Renner ever leaves T.Cruise wouldn’t be stuck for a replacement. I guess the selfish side of me wants him to stay as Adam because he’s so great at it but the nice side of me wants to see his career bloom because he deserves it.

At some point I think CBS or NBC won’t like this dual arrangement and he will be forced to choose.

I think he could play any part you put him in

Wow! Don’t know any of this. His appeal was so evident; it just wasn’t clear to me about the acting. His hand and body movement were gentle but the speech patterns so rapid. I don’t want him to leave but guess it seemed too many people were looking at the chemistry. However, that is probably what it is all about.

Love Justin so I’d check out a prime time he’s cast in. Disappointed though to see Milo Ventimiglia is also cast….Actually I love Milo too…but through this info I just found out his show The Whispers was canceled. Really liked that show and it left on a cliffhanger. Thus the beauty of soaps…or what they used to be…they were a constant…loyal, in your home every day, never the threat of disappearing after you got emotionally invested… Sigh…

Two great actors…here’s hoping it’s a good show with longevity!

I love Justin Hartley and have watched him on Mistresses, Smallville and Revenge. He is a great actor and handsome to boot. I was a huge MM fan and when he was let go I gave up watching Y&R until I heard that Justin was going to be in the role. I love him with Chelsea (MCE) and to me their chemistry is off the charts.

I have been disappointed in the writing for Y&R and don’t like the fact that both JFP and Pratt give roles to their favorites which come mostly from GH and some other shows where they have all worked together.. They will stop at nothing to try and get the fans to like who they want us to like.

It looks like they are going to switch couples and have the character of Sage be with Adam and Chelsea be with Nick. I am not a fan of Sage at all. Nothing against the actress, but can’t stand the character. I have waited what seems like forever to finally have Adam, Chelsea and Connor to have some happiness without all this turmoil they have had. Like Adam getting a 10 year sentence for an accident which I never thought he was guilty of. I was hoping the writers would finally write something good and prove who really hit Delia that night. Instead they come up with this lame story of Victor offering Adam his freedom because the judge had an affair which turned out to be with Victor. Victor claims Adam changed the paternity test of Christian and he will tell Chelsea unless Adam comes to work for him and helps him bring Jack down. How many s/l’s do we have to have with the same thing repeated over and over.

What really bothers me is I think they forgot that when Sage had the original paternity test done Adam accused her of lying and told Nick the same thing and that he shouldn’t trust Sage because she was a gold digger. He also told Chelsea because she walked in on Adam and Nick arguing and wanted to know why he was causing grief to Nick and Sage. Adam told her it was because he thought the baby was his which made Chelsea realize he had sex with Sage. Of course he explained how it happened the day that she was supposedly marrying Billy downstairs and Nick had broken things off with Sage.

So how can Victor blackmail Adam with information that Chelsea already knew was a possibility? When Christian died (we know he really didn’t) you would think if Chelsea had a problem with Adam not claiming his own son she would bring it up and tell him to have his own paternity test or at least discuss the situation together. This is what I feel is poor writing. If this leads to Chadam breaking up I will be taking another break from Y&R. Sorry for the long rant. I never understand how Y&R continues to be #1 in ratings because I watch both GH and DOOL and find the writing to be really good. jmho

hmmm – when billy miller was on y&r he wasn’t allowed time off to audition for pilots or other projects that is why he left the show………………..i wonder why justin was allowed to do auditions

I hope Michael M goes to another soap, never to return to YR as long as
Eric B is there..Eric B runs YR, that’s why Sharon Case is thrown under the bus.
She has been isolated from the cast. Mr B does not like her since she didn’t want to
Be married to Victor..can you blame her..
Justin H can leave any time, he looks good but so sick of him. Hate Adam and
Chelsea. Sage can leave too. The story she is doing now was for Avery.
But no , no talent Kelly S. Got it…
Ready for YR veterans to be front and center

What happened to the McGyver rumors?

I hope Justin does both shows then we can see more of him and I do mean more, Yummy

Winsor Harmon Hopes Audience Reaction Will Prompt B&B’s Brad Bell: “To Start Writing for Thorne Again”

On tomorrow’s December 5th episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Winsor Harmon makes a return as Thorne Forrester, as Eric (John McCook) is set to throw a major Forrester family party since he plans on saying goodbye to his loved ones as he was given only a few months to live.

The last time Harmon visited the CBS daytime drama series was back in 2022 during a dream sequence of Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang).  Harmon has appeared on and off the series since from 1996- 2016.  For a short run, Ingo Rademacher took over the role from late 2017- to early 2019.

Joining Harmon during his return will be another B&B favorite, Ashley Jones who reprises her role as Bridget Forrester beginning on the December 6th episode of the soap opera.

Speaking with SOD on his latest comeback to BOLD, Harmon expressed his hope’s that out of his appearances will come a potential new story for Thorne down the line.

Winsor shared, “We’ll see how the audience reacts and I think things will start popping in Brad’s (Bell, executive producer/head writer) head and he’ll start writing for Thorne again.”

Photo: JPI

In terms of what Harmon was told when the series offered him to make a comeback for some upcoming episodes, the actor revealed, “They didn’t tell me anything.” So, apparently Winsor was in the dark when he said “yes” as to just what the story would be.

Coming up, look for some emotional moments for the Forrester family, as some people know of Eric’s condition, while other’s in the family do not.

So, do you hope that Brad Bell decides to write future story for Thorne Forrester and bring back into the canvas for a longer run as played by Winsor Harmon? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”
