Glad to see they cast him. I don't trust Griffith however. It's nice to see Amanda get a family even though they aren't being written for ...

Counting down to his loosely-Amanda-involved-or-in-the-room death in 3-2-1....


Seriously, I suspect through him, we’ll find out where Imani gets her personality from.

never ceases to amaze me how they stay writing granny Phyl vs. younger and younger women, meanwhile HIlary/Amanda is out here w/ these dead-ass stories.

Jack Landrón has been cast as Sutton Ames.
He is the father of Amanda's mother Naya Benedict.
His debut airdate is Monday April 5th US (Friday April 2nd Canadian).

About actor Jack Landrón





His wikipedia entry has a lot of interesting history!



The man Naya was involved with with during college -

the bio-father of Amanda & Hillary, was named Richard Nyland.  He died in a car accident shortly after the twins were born.


Now, Sutton Ames is accused
of having arranged that long-ago car accident in some way, so Sutton is being charged with Richard Nyland's murder, and Naya wants Amanda to be Sutton's defense attorney.


The conflict is that Sutton had encourged Naya to give up the twins, so Amanda knows he didn't want her in the family.



@Dylan mentioned this upthread: Tues March 30 CDN: "Amanda's father used work for Newman Enterprises."

Thanks! I hadn't watched that eppy yet.


From the soapcentral recap

Tues 3/30 CDN / Wed 3/31 US ...

When Richard had graduated from college, he'd begun working for a company (Newman Enterprises) that provided sizeable political donations to Naya's father (Sutton Ames). Richard had discovered that a man had allegedly bent a few rules to benefit the Newman company. Richard had discovered something, and he'd seen it as shady. He'd wanted to expose it, but before he'd had the chance, Richard had died. The question was whether Richard had died in the car accident or if he'd been killed to keep him quiet. There had been a commercial real estate deal that Victor had wanted pushed through, but there had been zoning restrictions in the way until Naya's father had become involved. Amanda wonders how she would be able to live with herself if she allows Naya's father take the fall, and Richard's real killer remains free.

That is just all types of messy!

Y&R wished they could get Keith David, lol.


Seriously, with so-called soap bloggers putting out this level of sloppy copy, it's no wonder this genre has fallen so hard.

    • There is some stuff for me to nitpick here: * The Wes Parmalee story was definitely a misfire but did it really matter in the scheme of things? Even in its best days, the show had its fair share of dud stories; Dallas for better or for worse wasn't a well-plotted show (much better than Dynasty, mind you). You tuned in because it had great characters. * Killing Bobby was the mistake. Boy, did Duffy f*** up there.  But, yeah, the dream was... a bold choice. That I could have almost accepted if they had been coherent how they tied the loose ends. But it was a last minute bit of cleverness and they clearly hadn't thought the follow-up through. Any fan can list the long list of things that were left over from "before the dream" that it made no sense not to be addressed again if the dream season was a dream. * I personally think Kristin was a powerful character when she was on but her value would have dwindled over time and I am not upset she was written out. I do not agree she had years of stories in her although they could have kept her alive and sprung her for a surprise revenge later (typically the kind of character it would have been fun to bring back for the lead-up to a JR comeuppance finale). * I don't think Jenna was a well-written character but she provided a useful obstacle for Pam/Bobby and I was OK with that. And the minute you accept a different actress playing the same character, you have to suspend disbelief as to the inconsistencies with the earlier tale. It wasn't absurd to revisit it and it was quickly resolved so ... fine. Again, Dallas wasn't that good at plotting but the character interaction worked in the grand scheme of the Pam/Bobby story. * Lucy was useless from Day One.
    • I like Gizelle too! But I also love Karen. Their banter is A+. I pretty much can find something to enjoy with everyone on Potomac (yes, even Candiace).    Beverly Hills is (almost) the opposite for me, which is why I won’t be watching. I just don’t find these women likable. At all. It’s unpleasant as a viewer. Those first 2-3 seasons (and select later moments like Amsterdam) were brilliant, though.
    • I am half of mind to start a "soap plot points from the 80s-90s that wouldn't fly today" thread  and yeah, that definitely would make the list.  
    • By comparison, the Cheers finale a few years later got a 45.5 rating. Even Frasier and Family Ties, which were not the blockbuster hits that Dallas was, had higher rated finales. Shows how much they had alienated the show’s once-huge audience.
