Are All My Children and One Life To Live Actors DAYS and Y&R Bound?






Is Sony Pictures TV president Steve Mosko about to pull a serious power move? According to Deadline, he just may. The site is reporting once news of All My Children and One Life To Live's cancellations broke, Mosko started having serious talks with Days of Our Lives executive producer Ken Corday, The Young and the Restless' Bill Bell, Jr. and daytime exec Steve Kent on which ABC stars to poach in order to boost their shows canvas. The names being floated around are: Debbi Morgan (Angie), Jacob Young (JR), Josh Kelly (Cutter) and Gina Tognoni (Kelly).

Josh Kelly? Hmm... I guess he could make an okay Eric Brady or even Shane and Kim's kid Andrew over at DAYS. While I'm all for Tognoni heading to Y&R as Victoria, the best play for any Bell is for The Bold and the Beautiful's Brad Bell to snatch up Young to reprise the uber popular role of Rick Forrester, though B&B isn't a Sony soap. Although now that Billy Miller is leaving Y&R, sister-in-law Maria might wanna make a play for him. What do you guys think?

Josh Kelly Could Be Billy On Y&R
Jacob Young Back To B&B I Could See
Debbi Morgan On YR
maybe GT To Days

Regardless They Need To Stay Away From GH

Hey wouldn't mind it, but I'm with you, Appleridge, stay as far away from GH, guys!!!

I say Days should snatched them up, or maybe go to Y&R, (hey other ABC castoffs are), or maybe B&B.

I will be very happy for them all!!!

I hate it when Days uses famous actors from other soaps---it makes it feel less like Days and more like....not Days. Remember when they used to hire newcomers?

Im All For Hiring Best Actor So If They Have A Role Thet Could Fit Cool But Dont Write Roles For Them. That hardly Ever Works.

OK, so here we go, shoehorning out-of-work soap actors into the few existing shows...

Well, Gina Tognoni was been the queen of the dead since her return to OLTL; Brad Bell will take pity on Jacob Young (probably); dudes like Josh Kelly are a dime a dozen on the West Coast.

But, Debbi Morgan -- send that woman to Y & R!

THERE'S YOUR NEW DRU, PEOPLE!!

I Seriously Doubt Debbi Would Take Over Dru. Debbu and Victoria Rowell Are BFF's

Gina Tognoni? Really? I don't get it. Josh Kelly seems to have no range, but maybe that's just the material he's getting. No opinion on JR--haven't watched AMC in ages. I remember DM from my AMC back in the day and she'd be an asset on any soap. She would never play Dru, though.

Ok, Gina and Debbi are obvious choices for poaching. Jacob has the obvious role he could return to. But if they want to have huge draws, why not try to poach Robin Strasser, Erika Slezak, or Susan Lucci. Imagine Slezak as the new Marlena on Days. Or Lucci as Victor Newman's first wife (Jamey has detailed this idea before). Or Robin as,... well Robin or someone like her on Bold and The beautiful as a love interest for Eric or Patrick Duffy's character. Those stars are the ones that would make a big splash in the thoughts of soap fans.

Sony doesn't own B&B so JY would be for Y&R or DOOL...sigh I want JY to branch out, daytime is dead but I would watch him on any soap.

Debbie Morgan is a SPECTACULAR actress, who I LOVE, but there's only ONE Drucilla, and that's Victoria Rowell. She would be a great female love interest for Neil, though. Far better than Julie Pace Mitchell, who still comes across as if she's reading from the phone book in most of her scenes.

I Could See DM On YR Or Days Probably New Role
JY Could Do Billy On YR Or Days' Phillip
JK as Days Eric Or Rex Or One Of Adrienne and Justin's Kids
If They Put Don't GT as YR's Victoria, Maybe She Can Be Maggie's Daughter Sarah On Days

Sony might want Jacob Young, but I say he's probably more likely to go back to B&B as Rick, especially now that Adrienne Frantz is back as Amber. In fact, I thoroughly expect Brad Bell to make a big play for JY and bring him back as Rick by year's end.

While I'm all for Tognoni heading to Y&R as Victoria

yikes poor Amelia Heinle - I suppose without Billy Miller propping her up, she will be in trouble eh? well tsk....
Plus now with so many fabulous soap actors being available, the ones who have jobs should watch their backs.

I'd much rather see Tognoni on B&B as Katie and Tom back where she belongs on Y&R.

Gina Tognoni as Victoria Newman Abbott!!!!!

PLEASE, Maria. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty please with sugar on top!! I'll be your new best friend......... Wink Wink

Amelia Heinle has been wearing out her welcome for going on 7 years. And I don't care anymore about her chemistry with Billy Miller. I am pretty sure Billy would have MORE chemistry with Gina anyway, IF he decides to stay on the show, which seems unlikely.

Who am I kidding?? Maria doesn't get rid of the actors that she NEEDS to get rid of. She simply brings on new actors to play roles that didn't need to be recast in the first place.

Alistair, I agree with you! Hell has indeed frozen over! LOL. And yes JY should go back to B&B. I just wish Kim Zimmer & Tom Pelphrey would end up on Y&R or GH and my little soap world would be right side up again.

Will these people be cast in these shows after AMC and OLTL gets cancelled?

Keep AH as Victoria--- love her and keep Susan Lucci as far away from Y and R as humanly possible.

Um, maybe it is just me thinking this though I doubt it but from listening and reading the comments on here, Days is horrible on a good day so I wouldn't want any of the ABC actors going over there. And Y&R has one of the largest soap cast ever which includes me, my mother and my granny so unless MAB is about to skim the fat I don't see how anyone can be added to that cast.

On the plus side, I would really want Gina Tognoni as Victoria on Y&R, Debbi Morgan as a love interest for Neil and Jacob Young as a long lost son for Tucker. I don't really see a need for Josh Kelly. Though I know all of this is wishful thinking on my part.

Tucker doesn't need a long lost son, he needs to be written off ASAP!!! He's one of the big things wrong with Y&R these days.

I would love to have Gina Tongoni as Victoria on Y&R. I think Josh Kelly would be a decent nuBilly. Get rid of Sophia and bring over Debbi Morgan. That one guy can go back to B&B. I would love for Y&R to cast Susan Lucci as Diane, but she might be expensive.

I say that b/c MAB does not seem to want to get rid of Tucker so why not bring on a son that will cause him hell?

Well, I agree with those who say to stay the hell away from GH. They hardly use who they have, so anyone who went there would be totally wasted. Not to mention, there are things floating around about them anyway--if you read Ravenbeauty news and spoilers, you know what I'm talking about--so if they are smart, they will go flocking to CBS if beckoned. As for DOOL, Love my Tams Braun dearly, always have, always will, cause the girl knows how to work it, twirk it when it comes to a shytty storyline, IMHO--though I'm intrigued by her version of Taylor w/EJ. She's the only reason I'm really trying to watch now since the storylines are so damn dumb and the writing is so bad. Anyway, they need to fix what is broken--get rid of Dena--before they try to add more talent. I don't want to see anyone else wasted.

^^ Because the character needs to be isolated, not expanded upon. Giving him a child will make him even harder to get rid of. Tucker should be kept away from everyone else's stories, and if not fired, just made completely irrelevant (except that's kind of hard when he already is).

This is what I'm afraid of. Days is not a refugee camp for other soaps' cast-offs! Days needs to concentrate on bringing back some of its own classic stars like Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn, not taking on stars of cancelled soaps.

Ted K. moved all the way to NY for OLTL and now he's out of a job. Frons sucks.
