BREAKING NEWS: Tristan Rogers Joins Y&R!




If this has anything thing to do with the casting battle between The Young and the Restless and General Hospital, score one for Y&R. TV Guide Magazine has the exclusive news of Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, GH) heading to Genoa City! 

A show rep tells TV Guide Magazine he’ll play "a mysterious and charming stranger named Colin who comes to Genoa City with a dark secret and a threatening agenda." Rogers, whose role at this point is considered recurring, will start shooting Y&R October 27 and hit the air December 8.

Kudos to Y&R. They may not have been able to steal Anna (Finola Hughes) away, but Robert will do!

    Jillian,

    You are absolutely right. I was not watching GH during his tenure there, but I know that he’s a popular and well-regarded actor. I just wanna know why MAB keeps creating these new characters and then “treating us” to all of these ‘guest stars’……like this is a primetime drama or something. A different actor that you “may remember from XYZ” each week!!

    It just screams………”STALL/DISTRACT them while we come up with better stories to tell.”

    But you are right, I will thank God that she didn’t hit up Janice Dickinson or Judy from “Family Matters”……..

    ;) ;)

    They cast a SOAP ACTOR??? Not some washed-up primetime “star”? Oh my God! :-O

    Who cares if it’s a new character…it’s just a short-term recurring role.

    The problem with MAB and her writing staff seems to be that they come up with a good story and then tell it and it is over. There is no springboarding the story into something next. Soap Operas are about what happens next! A good story will be the jumping off point for another good story. So when ya come up with one, think where can this go after this story is done. If it goes nowhere, then think of a different story.
    They have to create new characters all the time because they don’t have a second story to tell with the cast they have.

    Well, thank god MAB isn’t trying to get Lindsay Lohan for a short stint, LOL. But, I agree with alstonboy, it screams, getting everyone and anyone to get press, but Tristan is great and can’t wait. Maybe he will be for Jill. She needs to get laid. :bigsmile: :8)

    Interestingly, Finola Hughes was meant to play the (throwaway) role of Sabrina’s mother in 2008 but ABC refused to let her do it even though she was not under contract to them or GH.

    … so if this Colin chap is part of Cane’s travails, I guess that means we have to put up with all of that drival for much longer than any of us ever dreaded.

    … or (being a big name) maybe he will turn out to be Michael’s paternal side (but hopefully not Sheila in yet another miraculous makeover).

    I believe everyone that he will be involved with Cain – BUT – how cool would it be if he came in as the brother of Col. Douglas Austin, the perv who watched Nikki strip and introduced Victor to Nikki?

    This is great news for Tristan Rogers fans. And as far as the unhappy GH fans, Robert Scorpio is never coming back to a substantial role on GH as long as Phelps and Guza are running the ship. The Ethan storyline pretty much begged that Robert returned to the canvas and instead they made Ethan a Spencer. Credit Guza and company. I’m thrilled TR found work elsewhere.

    If he is for Jill, WELCOME! :love: WELCOME!:love: WELCOME!:love:
    Those two would be loads of fun together!

    If not I don’t care. So far sixty year old Tucker has gone from 50 year old Ashley to 38 year old Diane. Vance is around, but never seems to run into Jill. And we don’t need another man for Phyllis.

    Yeah but Diane is supposed to be 50 too lol…….. She got DeSORASed!
    Unfortunately for the show it sticks out like a sore thumb everytime shes on screen with Jack or Victor. Maybe someone should mention that she got a facelift or something. Maybe Jill could notice a scar behind her ears or something…

    She definitely looks a whole lot closer to 50 than she does 40. I find her quite haggard and hard looking. Am sick of her already. She has been on show 11 out of the 12 days it has been on since she was hired, so she must be doing somebody.

    yojo, I totally agree with you! Diane’s eating up the show, and it’s annoying. Why couldn’t she join a webseries where her ATWT fans could adore her in peace without interfering with Y&R?

    My post #15 above … right, Michael already has a father; how could I have forgotten that whole bit?

    I guess Colin will turn out to be the head of Cane’s problems (maybe even his father) but it was also suggested to me that maybe he could turn out to be Victor’s long missing brother in a new form.

    No, Ryan-Scott, just calling them as I see them. I really don’t care how many kids she has and I really don’t care what show she might have been big on. She just does nothing for me. As an actress, I find her meciocre. As being attractice, reminds me of an ex-brother-in-law, when he saw someone of her caliber, he would always say, “Lets take the Dogs and go hunting”

    Calling what as you see them?
    Do you work at CBS? Do you know if she is sleeping with anyone there?
    No, you don’t.

    To quote Diane: take that “toxic energy” and do something good with it.

    … all of the legitimate and obvious objections to the current Diane incarnation aside, I don’t really see much wrong with Maura West or the way she is portraying her.
