Daniel Goddard Wants Colin to Threaten to Cut Off Victor Newman’s Legs on Young and Restless!





General Hospital might be sidelining the mob, but The Young and the Restless hunk Daniel Goddard (Cane) is hoping Genoa City will soon be cementing the Atkinsons (featuring two GH alums) as a bona fide crime dynasty, complete with TV pop Tristan Rogers (Colin) going head to head with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and/or Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). Goddard in this week's CBS Soaps In Depth:

Genoa City really does't have a crime family," points out Goddard. "You've got Victor and Jack going at each other, but Colin is really a take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He knows what he wants and goes after it."


Goddard goes on to say he believes Rogers vs. Braeden and/or the former Robert Scorpio from Port Charles vs. the former Dr. Cliff from Pine Valley would "clash wonderfully onscreen."

'You have such wonderful potential there, where Colin could go, 'I don't know how you do it over here in America, but if you do that again, I'll have your legs cut off!"

Can I please, please, pretty please with vodka on top, be on the set the day Eric Braeden reads a script like that? For more of what Goddard would like to see happen on Y&R, pick up this week's CBS Soaps In Depth, on newstands now.

    A few choice words for Daniel:

    OVER MY DEAD BODY!!! I cannot stand you anymore Daniel and I for one wish MAB had left you dead and gone. After seeing you taking an almost naked pic of yourself, that tells me that you’re self absorbed and a jerk!

    Of course we need more crime on Daytime Television. :Sp

    Y&R is as bad as it is … but I don’t want to see this crap. Come on now! Get to what Y&R was really about.

    Bill Bell would roll over in his grave, if Goddard’s wishes become true.

    Honestly I would like to know for some actors when they just should keep their thoughts to themselves. First Genie, now Goddard … and that all in one week.

    It will just let Y&R viewers turn off the show even more. It’s just horrible! And no, I don’t want Nikki Newman on a rivalry with that horrible character that this aussie mob wife is. Just thinking about it makes me angry.

    At that point, I just want the Atkinsons off my screen!!!!

    I would love the Atkinson’s to stay especially Colin and this is coming from a 30+ plus viewer. Honestly, the show need a new family to give the core family such as the Newman, Chancellor and Abbotts new people to fight with. I swear if I see another Victor/Jack feud I’m going to barf. It’s old and tired. I’ll take any feud over another Jack and Vic feud. Sometime you have to bring in new blood to keep everything from getting old.

    GC already dabbled with the mob element back during the time of Bobby Marcino’s “Gentleman’s Club” with Brittany Hodges and MTS’s Nikki was involved also. As I recall Victor ended up going in and saving Nikki, Bobby wound up dead and Brittany was pregnant with his child and ended up leaving the canvas after reconciling with her parental units…That was more than enough-let’s not go there on a regular basis…Cleaning up the criminal element on one show doesn’t mean we have the stomach to have it transfer to another… 0:)

    He’s an idiot who obviously has no idea about the history of the show he’s been on for a few years now. The show had mob elements under LML with Bobby Marcino and everyone agreed that that wasn’t a good fit for Y&R.

    If he wants a chance to play a mobster he should start auditioning for parts elsewhere.

    What was I saying yesterday about some actors should never open their mouths except to say the lines somebody else wrote…….?

    The Bobby storyline was well written and was enough for me as well. And yeah, maybe it’s time for another core family … but I don’t need the mob on Y&R. I don’t need an overacting Genie Francis, who thinks she’s the Helena Cassadine of Genoa City.

    Y&R used to be so intelligent about their rivalries and about family. The Y&R I remember and love had character well written storylines. It wasn’t full of plot holes, written after plot and about some soulless characters.

    As I recall the current Y&R regime isn’t even good about writing crime mysteries anyway. Look at the latest murder mystery mess. With this all … Y&R should stay the hell away from making this family a prominent feature of the show.

    Oh for the love of God, STFU Daniel Goddard! The last thing Y&R needs is a fucking cattle-rustling moofia! Y&R already has two core families it is not using: the Winters and the Fisher/Baldwins. Y&R does not need to start imitating GH.

    Be glad someone at CBS/Sony felt your job was worth saving. Just smile, nod and look like you’re trying really hard not to fart, or practice Blue Steel from Zoolander or whatever that weird pursed lip face it is you do.

    :O Forever21, Must be a long time since you saw some good stuff in daytime. The storyline that brought the Atkinsons to GC was horrible and showed almost everything what’s wrong in this business (including the retreated firing of Goddard). And the character outline for Colin and his estranged wife are so poor that I don’t believe that there are people on this world like this horrible couple. Killing their children by accident, hating each other, wanting to kill each other … only to end up in bed together. That’s not what I want to see on a daily basis. Not on Y&R. We already have GH for that, where people can make excuses for killing, hurting and firing guns at each other just because of business…!

    Nothing wrong with throwing out ideas. Victor has become a mobster so what’s the difference if there’s another mob family? LOL Genevieve doesn’t fit,but Colin does and mob family is not necessary.

    THE CHANCELLOR STORY SHOULD COME FULL CIRCLE the writers should connect to the beginning. How about Katherine & Jill living with an actual Chancellor man again almost like 38 years ago except they aren’t fighting over him as a lover.

    [quote]Let’s say Phillip Chancellor II had a younger brother. When Katherine killed P2, the young man took off to Australia and made a new life from himself away from Genoa City.

    Colin is Phillip Chancellor II’s younger brother :crown:. No wonder he has fallen so deeply in love with Jill :love:. And he is the man to take over and run the company his brother started. He can mentor both Chance and Cane to take Chancellor Industries into the future. Jill becomes queen bee of the home with her new husband, and Jill and Colin treat her well despite her constant meddling and attempts to control their lives.

    I swear to God if Y&R starts in with the mob, I will not watch it ever again. I hope that Maria Bell will have more sense than to do that to the audience. Yes Bill Bell had mob stories. More than one even. However they were contained and the contract characters where there to bring down the mob not work there. Yes it is ok to have a mafia story. No it is not ok to have a mafia show! I can barely stand to watch the show right now as is. Days of our lives is better right now than Y&R. And that is saying ALOT.
    I am not enjoying one thing Y&R is doing. Well I am not hating this buddy sex/business partnership that Phyllis and Nick have entered into. It is kind of light and fun compared to the rest of the show which is doom and more doom. Then a little gloom to change it up. I can not wait till the murder “mystery” is over. I also can not stomach one more Tucker v. Kay moment. I personally am on Kay’s side. She is trying to do what she thinks is right for Tucker who is deminished capacity. Atleast she is not ass kissing him like his employees do. However I would like for Kay to find out about the nekkid kid’s part in the accident.

    It doesn’t really have to be a crime family, just another family in business, one that can interact with Newmans or Abbotts or Chancellors and one they can fight with. Is anyone else beside me tired of the same repetitive fight with the Abbotts and Newmans? Everybody have slept with each other..Victor and Jack have slept with every female except Kaye and Lauren lol..We need new people.

    Damn the torpedoes….pass the barf bag. I have already stopped watching lately…but if the ship is righted I would be back in hot second. We don’t need NEW people what we need is GOOD writing for these amazing characters Y&R has right now on canvas. If this happens when Y&R’s renewal date comes up by 2014 it will be cancelled because of the erosion of the ratings. Then we will have Sony & Bell Dramatic Productions doing a DOOL with a reboot wanting fans to “come back” and it might be to late. This will be Days’ last chance and if the tide doesn’t turn NBC won’t renew. So how do we long time fans start the campaign to stop this bleeding mess now and band together to correct this disastrous direction by contacting CBS, Sony & Bell? If anyone knows how contact them please let me know because I’m will fight. I fought for AMC & OLTL not being the long time fan as many on here were to help. I want a campaign to stop MAB’s destruction!!! |( |( |( |( |( |( |( |( |( |( |( |(

    That is MAB’s writing. I haven’t cared about any of the other new characters she has brought on but I like Colin & Gene. I enjoy Gene/Colin/Jill scenes and if they want to extend it to a Colin/Victor rivalry thats cool. Victor needs a new strong enemy

    Y&R has become pretty bad. Can’t stand the Genevieve character….it’s as if they are just trying to ram her down the viewers throats….but in reality it is like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole….just doesn’t work….nor will it ever work. The character and the portrayer are disliked by the majority of viewers and MAB can try all she likes, but it won’t change. The dye has been cast.
    So here is the question. Where is Nikki? MAB says she is coming back. MTS says she hasn’t been on set since the end of April and still has not been contacted to come back to Y&R. Can anyone….ANYONE…..tells us why Melody Thomas Scott/Nikki Newman is no longer on the show??? Why they say she is coming back but MTS says she hasn’t seen a script….and they film 6 weeks out so we are now looking at October for her return….at the earliest?
    And with Diane’s murder, it makes no sense that she is not there in this story line. IS MAB being payed to insure Y&R is cancelled??
    Or is it the work of Sony?

    So TPTB @ Y&R are suffering from a collective case of writers block? Or is it just laziness plain & simple? Well, don’t go chasing after GH’s discarded, sickening, stale story lines. That stunt-casting trick with bringing Brenduh back did not work out so well. It is a pretty safe bet that Guza wishes he had saved the money he spent on Vanessa Marcil. Someone should remind Daniel Goddard that it’s a crapfest over at GH and it has not been completely resuscitated.

    The return of Brenduh debacle is just a sign of things to come despite all the Genie Francis hoopla. One does not have to be clairvoyant to see that this will not end well. Tristan Rogers and Genie Francis are caricatures rather than real characters. The substandard material that MAB has given the cast is the stuff that relegates soap actors to second-class status.

    Ditto for the mob s/l that is being hinted at now. First and foremost, Tristan/Colin ain’t Sonny Corinthos — that character you love to hate. Sonny and Jason are two of the dumbest crooks ever, but I kept watching because of Maurice Benard’s gorgeous dimples and Steve Burton’s icy blue stare and buff bod. (I know that’s superficial.) But now, the mob story has worn thin and I am FFing through those scenes.

    I would rather indulge my love/hate affair with Victor Newman with all his character flaws, than suffer through a convoluted, poorly written s/l with Colin and Genevieve. Send them both back to Australia. They can take that dim-witted son of theirs with them. None will be missed.
    GC does not need a crime family and DG should sit down and shut up!

    First, I love seeing Tristan Rogers on Y&R. GH screwed up what could have been a great use of legacy characters there. Done with them. When Colin came in and got together with Jill, that was magic. They go good together. I’ve been wanting to know more about what was hinted at when Colin took the babies, and now we are getting some of that. But I still think C&J go together.

    But if we are talking about what else Colin would be getting into, I can see him and Genevieve working together against Victor to save their family fortune. Ex’s can have a truce and still have C&J together.

    Furthermore I don’t think Geneieve is all that bad. Personally, I think people are dumping on GF because of the MTS mess and that’s so wrong. It’s not her fault. All she did was take a job that was offers to her.

    Even though some of us “may not like” what goes on in Genoa City, I’m not sure that campaigns for change or firing work that well. It’s something like movie preview audiences demanding changes which for the most part are probably detrimental to the director’s vision.

    Perhaps you are not a long time viewer or maybe you have just forgotten that Jack has been down that road with Lauren, a long time ago, way before Michael and before she grew into such a beautiful woman.

    [quote=matealestlmo][quote=Dyllan]The problem with GF really isn’t the writing, but the ACTING. OMG, that is some awful sh*t, lol! This lady is a textbook definition of “overacting” or “scene chewing” or “ham”. Its really hurting the storyline. And, maybe I’m actually noticing his acting, but DG seems to have gotten worse in the acting department, IMO, since he got fired. The Atkins family is not the new family that GC needs.[/quote]

    I actually have to agree with Dyllan on this one. GF is overacting and DG’s acting has definitely gotten worse.

    MAB, time to cut your losses here. It ain’t working on TV and the fans are hating it, myself included.[/quote]

    Beautifully written and I agree 100% about how lousy Genie and whats his face are acting wise. Should send them back to Aussiland never to return

    Tedew,I read some of these posters, then your post. Unfortunately some of these negative kinds of posts get perfectly good actors fired, in my opinion. How many negative posts went on about how much people hated Cane and Lily, and I think that’s what got Daniel Goddard fired in the first place. I hate,hate,hate what they have done to Cane and Lily. I do not for one minute believe that she belongs with Daniel. I might have felt that way 3 years ago, but not now. I really don’t have a strong opinion one way or the other about the Atkinsons. I do agree that they give us something new to look at, and that Colin and Jill were good together: but she’d have to be out of her everlovin’ mind to ever take him back now. However, how many things get forgiven on soaps in the name of storyline. As I said in my earlier post, I just want Cane to grow a backbone. You can only be contrite, and let people walk all over you for so long, then you get angry. I think this is what might make Cane a whole lot more interesting. Cane isn’t acting worse. He has just not been given any kind of storyline to work with. His storyline has him staying in the background, quiet, sorry, and just being a dish rag in general, and that is very uninteresting to the viewing public. Shame on MAB for dealing with this storyline in this way. My theory is that she has some negative issues with men, and is writing out what she would like to see happen, rather that what really would or should happen. Look at the Billy storyline. The guy got pooped on to put it mildly. In reality this wouldn’t happen. We need some fresh writing, that isn’t so twisted, and castrating toward men. JMHO

    I would have to agree with everyone here. I finally gave up on a show which shall remain nameless because the mobster stuff was dull, boring, repetitive, deadly boring and, did I mention – boring? Y&R has stayed at the TOP of the ratings heap mainly because the show has NOT become bogged down with all of those boring gangsters. Gangsters should either be “real” – as in “Boss of Bosses” or “Donnie Brasco” – or funny – as in “Mickey Blue Eyes.” The current crop of soap writers do NOT have enough talent to make the mobsters either real OR funny – and they end up with just plain nothing in between. As for me, I would much prefer to see Tristan Rogers finally reveal that he has been an undercover agent all of these years and, just about the time that he was about ready to bust the Australian mob, Cane and Samantha decided to turn the whole gang in – but they did so prematurely – and set the investigation back by years and years. With his daughter gone and his family hating him, Colin decided to continue with his undercover work – in the hope of finally busting the mob any way. I believe that a scene like that between Colin, Genevieve and Cane would have a LOT more impact than TIIC attempting to pull a ho-hum replay of a mobster-ridden soap which has been scraping the BOTTOM of the ratings barrel for several years now!

    I concur!! YnR needs another family. Give the Abbots n Newmans a break. I like GH Genie Francis as Genevieve, but the thought of her n Colin (Tristan Rogers) makes me barf. It’s almost darn near incestuous. We need a psycho character with power and grace. I hope they don’t bend her too much; she makes a great Katherine-Chancellor-like figure head. I enjoy watching her exposing this dimension of talent — moving beyond the helpless, needy, and sweet character played in the past. She’s psycho again, but psycho dangerous and powerful.

    And thats why Daniel Goddard is a “supposed actor” and not a writer. But I must say, he is at least as good as the current writers. Y&R needs a “mob hit” alright…but on some of the newer cast members, the writers and MAB! It will take a “Valentine’s Day” type massacre to clean up the mess that Y&R is currently. I am a disappointed fan in so many ways. Here’s another – Jill as Lauren’s sister?! Mama Bell, please put the children in their corners, right this beautiful, history-laden drama and let them know they cannot play until they have completed their homework, passed the course with a Bill Bell 4.0 GPA and learn to spend money on character-driven story and not this plot-driven drivel. I am so surprised Eric Braden hasn’t spoken up. But when he does, MAB, you best be ready for a job in , let’s say, set design?

    brando70456 … why would Herr Gudegast speak up anyway?

    The Sauerkraut has the best of all possible worlds. The plots revolve around him and are controlled by him. He always comes out on top even when he is completely on the dark side. So much appears (even if it is just urban legend) to be written into his contract that he is set for life on Y&R no matter how long it continues to exist. All that plus he is the pampered so called star of the show (witness the obvious line feedings to him from any available electronic device, chalk board or co-star eyelids).

    We need to have some realism here. Victor needs to be shot down from his high perch; and that includes being found out for from everything to the recent Callgirlgate incident concerning Billy to having Adam scouring Tucker’s office for documents and everything in between, before and surely for what is to come. Most of the other characters need some decent, believable but fun and riveting stories (well maybe some less so and others more so). The show that we will probably continue to watch with disappointment should be providing thrills and true suspense for a change. Part of that would be for the characters to act rationally and to find a cure for that Hypocrisy Virus that has been running rampant and infecting most Genoa City residents to a greater extent these days.

    But it’s probably all a bit too much to hope for so we will just trudge on.

    tedew…I stand corrected! In my best “Mumbles” (Eric Braeden) waiting for the cue card guy to get in his line of view, (no, I will not turn and read the monitor!) impersonation, “Hmmmmm!”.
    What I meant was it will take an actor with some clout to get MAB’s attention. But you are right, “Mumbles” must be very happy now that he is in the orbit of everyone’s story and seems to remain there, untouched even by the so-called District Attorney. He has now even been hit by Genevieve as Genie Francis bounces from set to set like a pinball in a pinball machine with that “cartoonish” grin and one-liners of no interest.
    Yes, it is time for him to pay the piper. (Point of note: did anyone else hear Nick’s response to Ashley the other day, “Do you want me to call someone?”) Please don’t…he is Nickie’s child. Victoria is supposed to be Victor’s but played by AH, she is unrecognizable now.
    Let me stop…I’m getting offtrack. I just wanted to acknowledge tedew’s response about “Herr Gudegast”.
    I can only hope that somehow “Herr Gudegast” is overlooked by his script reviewers (?) in ensuring that he runs GC and all hell breaks loose on the set and Mama Bell or someone comes in and rights this ship!17
