Daytime Confidential is reporting that Lily, Devon (?), and Noah are being recast and that 2 writers have been fired. Sheffer's contract is up for renewal in Nov. Sorry if any of this has already been posted.

About Time!, It's no surprise about Noah, but it's no secret that Lily needs to be recast.

It's a shame about Devon though, Bryton is a talented actor but he was just never given the right material.

If this is even true, I understand about Bryton. He's very likeable and is a good actor, but in this era of underwear models turned actors, they probably wanted someone "prettier" and with a 6-pack in the role in order to make the Devon more of a force on the canvass and push his relationship with Tucker into high stakes territory. Would be even more surprised about CK, since I thought she was extremely popular.

Nothing has been confirmed about Bryton yet, the Christel "confirmation" comes from one of her fansites, I believe.

I really hope they keep Bryton. He grew on me as an actor. CK needs to be shown the door of course.

Nobody but Bryton will ever be Devon to me. This pisses me off.

I don't think Bryton should be replaced. I think he's pretty perfect for that role. If he was leaving on his own accord, that's another story. Just pray that nuDevon isn't Marcus Patrick.

There's nothing wrong with Bryton.

It's Y&R that's the problem.

Y&R's Lily Out!

Posted Image


According to her official Web site, Christel Khalil is out at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS! "It is not her decision to leave," the site reports. "An agreement could not be reached during contract negotiations."

At this time, there is no official confirmation from the soap regarding a final airdate for the Emmy-winning fan-favorite, but it puts a new spin on a recent casting notice Y&R sent out looking for an African-American woman in her mid-20s who is "vivacious, energetic, ambitious. She's a mom balancing work and family. She's had her share of tough times, but always bounces back from even the most trying situations."

That sure sounds like Lily to us! The role has been recast before, with Davetta Sherwood briefly taking over as Dru's daughter in 2006 before Khalil took back the part. As soon as we get any more information on this developing story, we'll be sure to let you know!

Agreement could not be reached during negotiations? GMAFB! That's a really pretty way of putting it. Jill came in and fired her ass!

Well, if it IS Marcus Patrick, just put him in a pair of spandex biker shorts in every scene, and you won't even notice his acting. ...

Why are they firing the perfectly dreadful CK? She been there for years. A contract dispute? I don't buy that one.

I say just temporarily write Lily out, and give Roxanne/Tatyana Ali more to do. Expand her role a bit. And then, down the line, re-introduce Lily with a better actress.
