  2. B&B Recasting Major Role

    For real. What is up with Bradley Bell and WH? There's got to be more to the story here. WH is more than a capable actor who could be a leading actor if they actually wrote for Thorne. Brooke & Thorne in 1999-2001 was a HOT coupling. It made NO sense that they've never revisited that. Hell, they've even revisited Brooke/Eric once or twice since their early 90's marriage. If they're recasting for someone slightly younger and "demo friendly" (despite B&B skewing towards the 65+ crowd) soon, the Thorne/Ridge/Kristen/Felicia Forrester "kids" will be the same age as their own kids.
  3. Days cast GH vet?

    There was a leaked script front page for March, only thing spoilerish is that there's something going on in Hong Kong and Shawn (and maybe Belle but she wasn't on the script, he was and Doug/Julie seemed to be as well which thrills me, it seems Ron will be using them well, Club TBD will now be 'Doug's Place', a total Ron move) is still around. But the biggest spoiler was that there was a character named Stefan listed on the script. Guess that's the character Tyler is playing.

    You can kind of tell this from her interviews and persona going back a long way. She's a beautiful lady (and presumably made wise choices in surgeons, unlike many her age in Hollywood...), but you always have to be wary of people who are too sure of their own intelligence. I still enjoy her more than I probably should, to be honest. She's actually pretty lucky because a lot of people who went as far as she did during the election season might have faced more career blowback but she seems to have gotten through unscathed. I guess at her age parts or recognition for women are already crumbs anyway.
  6. B&B Recasting Major Role

    TSJ as the new Thorne? If only...I miss him on TV. And I was thinking the same thing that Susan Walters would be a Taylor recast. I love me some SW.
  7. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    I wasn't surprised about him being closeted but was saddened when he spoke of how self-loathing he'd been and in some ways still is. You could tell he probably wasn't expecting to be that honest during the interview. I did laugh at Joan Collins telling him he was too old to play her son. I had no idea Adam was supposed to be 25-26. Gordon was a gorgeous man but he did not look 25-26. It's nice to hear how close he is to both Stevens. The stuff about John Forsythe being in love with Linda Evans and channeling it through the characters fascinated me as well (although it's probably a bit of hokum). The bit about the reason for the aliens story (which I never understood even though it didn't bother me as much as it did him) cracked me up. A vision, indeed. And the bitching about the "reboot" warms my heart. Thanks for sharing that. I will enjoy reading Pamela Bellwood's when it's out as I always had a soft spot for poor Claudia.
  8. Will & Grace Revival

    Can't wait for Thursday! The cast was just on The Megyn Kelly Sbow.
  9. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    THIS. I had the most massive crush on GT/Adam when I was a kid (I am female), and even I guessed back then that he was gay. I love the whole interview, how forthright he is. I'm just sad that it is only now, at 72, that he can come out. What's sadder is that he has been wrestling with some kind of internal hatred and discomfort with himself all these years. Great actor, and Adam along with Alexis was arguably the most compelling character on the show.
  10. The Politics Thread

    Yesterday, there was an obituary on a playwright who at one time had been dubbed a "feminist playwright". What truly caught my eye was in later interviews this playwright talked about her eventual disillusionment with feminism and how she got attacked equally by the women because of her lack of "establishment success". I knew someone who knew someone who used to work as Sarandon's assistant who claimed that she was one of the most self-centered person they'd even encountered!
  11. +1 OMG lol dead at Chick Fil A Reeves! I think Jack could be written well under Ron. He's already made Nicole more tolerable and more in line with how she should be. But then I remember the trash he got for writing and shoved aside for Daniel and I think maybe it's best to keep Jack dead. He gets more respect as a ghost than he did when he was alive.
  12. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    surprised it took so long since it seemed like everyone already knew he was gay IRL
  13. The Politics Thread

    I think it was Betty Wright who said, "Girls can't do what the guys can do, and still be called a lady." But what gets ME are the many women, such as Susan Sarandon, who went after Hill on this and other non-issues. The men hyped the [!@#$%^&*] out of it, and the women swallowed the hype. And these same women want to be taken seriously as feminists? Really?

  15. The Politics Thread

    I meant the international reaction. Most of the coverage I'd seen from outside Germany framed it as being a walk for Merkel (which I suppose it still was) and that the AfD was broken/cracked/missed their moment entirely.
  16. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Gordon Thomson (Mason, SB; Adam, DYNASTY) has come out as a gay man to the public. Lots of good Dynasty dish in this interview, and he eviscerates the reboot. http://www.thedailybeast.com/im-gay-gordon-thomson-dynastys-adam-carrington-comes-outand-trashes-cws-reboot
  17. The Politics Thread

    So many similarities and it's terrifying the exploitation of these fears. In the US in many ways we are still litigating The Civil War and that happened 150 plus years ago. And of course here the "blacks are free" but we just come up with ways to continue forms of enslavement to this day, Jim Crow, private prisons, the war on drugs . Couple that with our own anti immigrant fervor, and that's how someone like Trump happens.
  18. The Politics Thread

    Well, even though Germany was reunited 27 years ago, life in the 5 (or 6, if count East Berlin) states that formerly composed the former German Democratic Republic is still different than in the rest of the country. The unployment rate in the East is almost twice as big as in the West, and the total income per household is also drastically different. In addition, before reunification there were hardly any foreigners in the former East, while in the West, many immigrants from Southern Europe arrived as early as the 1960s. Nowadays over 20% of the population was either born abroad or comes from a non-German background. However, ~ 9 million of these "foreigners" live in the West, while only 500.000 of them live in the East. The people in the East, who have felt neglected since reunification, fear that the influx of refugees will lessen their chances to become equal with the West even more. Same goes for the people in the poorer regions in the West. It's basically just jealousy that somebody might get something you think you're entitled to have. Of course there have been many (criminal) incidents involving immigrants and refugees. But people always act as if these problems have only arisen in the last 2 years, and they tend to forget that native Germans commit horrible crimes as well. But these type of crimes of course don't create as much buzz in the media as anything involving immigrants.

  20. Wow: The zero-budget "avant-garde black soap opera' Bill Gunn and Ishmael Reed made for public television is somehow getting a restoration:

      Cool! I cannot wait to see the episodes come out and how it all pans out.

      They were very very very cheaply made - I can't imagine how it'll look.

      That's terrific. I hope we get to see it.

  21. So Brad Bell decide to replace Thomas with Thorne and since the younger ladies will always be busy with Liam. How about Trevor St. John? Perhaps he wants to replace Eric with Thorne in the Quinn/Sheila stories. I was about to say that Susan Walters is rather young to play Margo (I am still dreaming of Anna Stuart playing the part) But soaps don't care about ages anymore. The days where EON's Nicole desorasing and DOOL's Mike Horton never aging felt weird seem to be over. Susan Walters could be Taylor though, since Brad loves bringing back familiar names with a new face.
  22. The Politics Thread

    Thanks so much @Huntress a lot of its very similar to this country in terms of anti immigrant bias and the areas it's most prominent in. I dont know know how factual, maybe you can fill in the blanks, but I read, and now can't remember where the article was, that the eastern part of Germany specifically was targeted by Russian propaganda and that that segment of the county in particular has been heavily resistant to any refugee resettlement.
  23. Thorne will always play second and third fiddle to Widge and BEEL and the two bland youngster males Lame and Wally. It's too bad because back when Winsor Harmon was recast as Thorne, Louisiana accent apart, he was a breath of fresh air. Boyishly sexy, funny, and actually a decent guy, he really gave that walking Ken doll Ridge a run for his money. I was so ready for him to topple that a-hole from Brooke's affections! He also had chemistry with absolutely everybody. I don't understand, if true, the plan to de-age Thorne?? I mean KKL is still Brooke and while she looks good for her age, she is still upwards of 45! Meanwhile, TK looks to be entering his 60s and not gracefully. DD is a carefully preserved 50 if he's a day. Thorne will have to be on a par with Bill's age group. Does the show need another 45-50 something male? It barely knows what to do with its current cast. Not to mention, John McCook is still in there, fighting the good fight for Peepaw Eric to get some.

    For those who may not be familiar with politics in Germany and want more information on the split in Germany's far right party that @Huntress (thanks for that very informative breakdown of regions and districts!) mentioned in the above post, here's an article that discusses that. That was quite the dramatic exit though. Split emerges in German far right as co-leader storms out of news conference
  26. B&B Recasting Major Role

    +1. If he recasts Thorne with Linden he can always bring Susan on as a recast Margo.
  27. Cancelled Soaps Cast Lists

    @danfling or anyone else, I added other shows for the actors on the past few posts. Please let me know if I missed any
