— When The Young and the Restless’ Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Hilary (Mischael Morgan) head to Los Angeles to meet with Forrester Creations this week, we won’t actually get to see the Jabot execs cross over on The Bold and the Beautiful to meet with Rick and Caroline Forrester (but don’t worry, Jacob Young and Lindsey Godfrey will appear on Y&R next month). Instead, look for Neil and Hilary to appear as contestants on The Price Is Right. Hilary gets called to come on down by Drew Carey and play a game of Plinko!
— Y&R has cast Matthew Atkinson in the recurring role of Austin, a camera man working with Avery. The actor, who previously appeared on Parenthood and Jane By Design, began taping last Wednesday and will start airing on the Wednesday, April 16’s Canadian episode.
— James Rebhorn passed away on Friday, March 21, at the age of 65. The actor most recently appeared on Homeland as Carrie’s (Claire Danes) father. Rebhorn was also known to soap fans for his roles on As the World Turns (as Henry Lange) and Guiding Light (as Bradley Raines).
— You can check out my interview with Days of our Lives stars Deidre Hall (Marlena), Drake Hogestyn (John), Lauren Koslow (Kate), Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Galen Gering (Rafe) and Kate Mansi (Abigail) here. I’ve also got photos from the Days of our Lives Better Living book signing in Toronto, here.
— ABC has confirmed what was previously teased over at WUBS.net, Australian actor Zachary Garred will appear as Levi, who accompanies Maxie when Kristen Storms returns from maternity leave next Thursday (April 3). Could Levi be a long-lost Scorpio? Mac’s (John J. York) long-lost son? Or could he be Sly Eckert? (Bill’s kid)…
— Speaking of Bill Eckert, could Anthony Geary be playing Luke’s look-alike cousin? It would make the most sense. I don’t think the show would want to do another look-alike mask or plastic surgery story when there’s already a look-alike character. Geary portrayed Bill from 1991 until 1993 (when Luke & Laura returned). Sure, Bill died in Luke’s arms in the 1993, but that means nothing on this show.
It would make the most sense, story-wise since Bill could be working at Barrett Enterprises. Bill dated Brenda’s (Vanessa Marcil) sister, Julia Barrett (Crystal Carson) and offed their dad, Harlan (Michael Cole). Bill could have proposed to Tracy (Jane Elliot) to further his cover as Faux-Luke and get his hands on ELQ, which was the originally reason why the Jerome’s came to town, but the whole “Kiki is not a Q” blew up in their faces. ELQ or Tracy’s wedding, could also be what brings Ned (Wally Kurth) back to town next month.
