Y&R's Restless Style: Just Who is Tucker McCall?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Clever, clever.  Y&R’s website, just produced their online version on their Restless Style mini-site of the issue of their publication talked about on-air on billionaire Tucker McCall.   Titled: Who is Tucker McCall? The Man Behind the Billions, this hilarious entry details McCall’s legacy, worming his ways into Chancellor Industries, and being revealed as Katherine Chancellor’s biological son and his attempts to hijack everything near and dear to the Grand Dame of Genoa City.   Check out all the images in the feature, that’s all we will say.  Here are some excerpts below!

“We know McCall dons and sheds personas like a Las Vegas drag queen. One minute he’s Nelson Mandela, the next Robert Mugabe, say those who have worked for him or been otherwise drawn into his orbit. Further, some days he’s the Joad who made good, true to his hardscrabble roots, unimpressed by his or anyone else’s success, others, he comes off more like P. Diddy on St. Barth’s.”As for any personal insight into what exactly drives him in his voracious quest to rule the business world, don’t bother; “close acquaintance” is as far as anyone seems to have gotten.  Perhaps that’s because “close acquaintance” is only as far as he’s gotten in knowing himself. The murky circumstances surrounding his origins might have something to do with that. Until recently, all McCall knew was that his parents had adopted him as an infant from a northern Wisconsin orphanage run by the Sisters of Charity where he was left by his reportedly unwed mother. More recently, new facts have come to light about McCall’s origins, and that information and his emotional response to it have been the subject of speculation in both the Business and Gossip presses.”

“But while he takes delight in building businesses, McCall reportedly takes equal delight in butchering them. More than a few CEOs (and thousands of workers) have reported to work on any given Monday only to find via pink slip that over the weekend, their seemingly-safe employer’s been hijacked, stripped and sold for parts faster than a broken-down Bentley on the Cross Bronx Expressway with McCall pocketing the bulk of the proceeds. Which is why his interest in Chancellor Industries, parent company of beauty behemoth Jabot Cosmetics, has so many tongues wagging and industry observers keeping a very close eye on CEO and founder Katherine Chancellor. If McCall’s plan is to send CI to the abattoir, his initial moves are textbook: CEO, Directors, business press and employees taken completely unaware while he buys up a controlling interest in the target. Next, in a demonstration of almost feline cruelty, a short period of toying with the captured prey, and then, the bloody end. Thousands of losers, and only one winner.”

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
