The Young and the Restless continues its former sitcom star casting spree. Dennis Haskins, best known for his role as principal Richard Belding on NBC's hit sitcom Saved By The Bell, has landed a guest spot on the sudser as a priest. What will the gang at Bayside high say about this? Look for Haskins' debut on July 13.

You all crack me up. I totally get the feeling from MAB's perspective. It seems like Y&R is obsessed with casting D-list former "stars" from the past (the Malcolm recast was the worst for me). From Mr. Haskins perspective though, he's just an actor probably desperate for a job so I'm happy he gets to earn some $$. The weird thing is, a lot of these people don't look like they did when they were "famous" so not everyone would even recognize them. On Y&R, isn't Todd a priest? Was Corbin Bernsen busy?

I was thinking the other day how soaps used to cast these young, hot stars some of which would go on to be big film stars. Now it seems like a battle of which stars to cast from canceled soaps, actors over 50, or people who used to be known in primetime or reality or (in this case) Saturday morning TV. Is the next Julianne Moore or Kathleen Turner on a soap now? Or even the next Ray Liotta or Meg Ryan? Wasn't it Betty Rea who was known for casting all this amazing young (and older) talent on soaps?

I guess in the grand scheme of things having Cindy Brady or Mr. Belding guest star in an episode or two is the least of Y&R's problems.

    • And on another note...I find it interesting that all this Jeannie stuff has grown down (I was even at work earlier and she was the MAIN story when you bring up the browser) as Ex Soap Opera Star over in BH is dealing with another controversy picture she's in involving blackface.

    • lol. Yeah, I definitely could have thought of a better title. Heck, GH people should have thought of a better title.  lol. Yeah, I definitely could have thought of a better title. Heck, GH people should have thought of a better title. 
    • Yes so big in fact that if GH was cancelled, I would shocked if Sonny did not ride off into the sunset with Brenda...with needed changes of course. Please register in order to view this content  She is still too heavily connected to the canvas...or can be...to not even NOT be relevant. As Brenda should be.   But I really came by LOL...granted I'm farther back than the rest of you, but I haven't gotten to the repetitive nature of the conversations between 'Sonny' and Carly yet. And like I've mentioned, I like this feels very much (as much as a soap can be) organic conflict.    But one thing I have liked about it (so far) has been Carly HAS NOT reacted to it the way she usually does. Let's face it...once Carly knew Sonny was alive and Nina knew, 9 times out of 10, she would have EXPLODED and @Cheap21 would have done one awesome 'Oh Lord Carly's on the Loose' gif/pic. Then she would have raised h#ll from the moment she found out to now, complete with a revenge plot.   I liked that they have truly just showed...yes, showed...Carly wrestle with her feelings over Nixon Falls. Olivia. Gladys. Willow(?). She has made a LOOOOOOOT of effect to not just explode at the drop of a hat. And even when she has started to, Carly has caught herself. And I found LW was playing that to the hilt. It's been over weeks, too. If that is not maturity, I don't know what is.   That said...I still keep that Carly will be her own worst enemy in the end. But at least it has a build to it.      THIS.   And they definitely prove that last part when VM came back for GH's 50th. First scene and it was there. At least for me. lol.
