SPOTTED: FOJ Kale Browne on Set of The Young and The Restless!


WARNING: This is a test of the Federal Soap Opera Friends of Jill Emergency Management System (FSOFOJEMS). Should this prove to be a true FSOFOJEMS emergency, hide Nikki Newman from all dayplayer serial killers. Watch for any storylines about angry cops played by Timothy Gibbs falling for their academy students and be on the look out for "Nadia's Theme" suddenly sounding an awful lot like the E.R. opening credits. This is only a test.

New Genoa City resident Mark Pinterset the Internet on fire when he posted on Facebook about seeing former Another World co-star Kale Browne on the set of The Young and the Restless. After Jill Farren Phelps worked with Browne on AW, she cast him in One Life to Live and General Hospital during her stints running those sudsers. Pinter posted:


Let the speculation begin… Shoutout to bonobochick for the tip!

    Whoa. I love Kale Browne but I hope his stint is brief and relevant to the story (perhaps he’ll be a judge or an associate of Mark Pinter’s character.) I doubt Y&R will be adding actors over the age of 60 to the show’s cast in anything other than a minor capacity. Mark Pinter’s stint is short-term. I am not upset at the FOJ-aspect as long as a.) the actors are talented and b.) do not take away too much air-time from established characters.

    * I am still cautious about Steve Burton’s addition due to the tenets I listed above!

    ** I didn’t realize JFP hired Kale Browne to play Sam Rappaport on OLTL. I thoroughly enjoyed him but The Rappaport Clan ate Llanview! He will always be my Michael Hudson!

    Didn’t he do the occasional voice-overs on GH? Like “the part of ___ is now being played by” and whenever an escaped convict was announced on PC television? Or is my mind playing tricks on me? Anyway, I loved him as Donna Love’s true love on AW.

    I honestly don’t know how this woman has such a folloiwng with certain actors. She destroys every show she works on, especially Another World! It was under her direction that she killed off Kale Brown’s Michael Hudson by making him drive into a revene.

    Why would they recast Tucker? They have no interest in writing for him. Just because he was “spotted on the set” doesn’t mean he’s there for a job. TPTB wouldn’t be that careless.

    People are getting hysterical over nothing.

    Are all the Friends of Jill male?

    (Time and time again, I’ve said how much I loved Another World so I can’t find it in me to complain about my Michael Hudson popping up in another incarnation.)

    I’m gonna have to agree with Coffee_Junkie on this one.

    Kale is a solid performer and he would actually be great opposite Jess Walton. With that said, I doubt he has joined the cast for anything other than a very short term character.

    I don’t care if Mark Pinter & Kale Browne are friends of the devil. If one, or both of them, are going to to be tried romantically with Jess Walton I say GO JFP! :)

    Jill Foster Abbott hasn’t had a serious love interest forever. They have left her single more often than any other character (that I can think of). Y&R needs another 60ish male cast member in order for Jill to have a romantic life.

    I loved loved loved KB as Sam on OLTL. I don’t care who he was screwing to get the job. He was fabulous and wish he would go back to OLTL as Sam and be with Todd again.

    I really don’t care who is seen on the set as long as the existing cast has story. One of the main things everyone DOES seem to agree on here is that Y and R’s cast had become too large and that seemed to be Josh and Jill’s “excuse” to release some of the “fat”. We don’t need any new characters right now. Stop.

    Yes Kale does the GH voice overs for “the part of…” and he’s also the voice over on the GH PA System “Dr. Monica Quartermaine please report to…”

    I still laugh that Kale was replaced on ONLT with Laurence Law.

    I don’t know this guy’s work. I will say that the show does NOT stink. It is getting back to having great character development and intelligent conversation. We do NOT need it to be another GH. Those two shows have always been different. I love that we are back in the cooperate world again after so many years. As a teacher, I am really involved in the bullying sl. Both actors involved are knocking it out of the park.

    If FV or RC came to Y&R that would be IT. They work for campy soaps, but Y&R is not campy. Even at its WORST, it wasn’t consistently a campy show. The campiest Y&R has EVER been was the whole “So long sister killer” crap that MAB pulled, and even THAT was just that one horrible storyline at the time.

    Y&R only stinks to those who don’t watch it ;)

    Some may be indifferent right now, but no one can really say that the show sucks. It’s slow…but it’s not a bad show at all. Actually I’m loving it right now.

    Actually I think Frank and Ron would recognize the differences inherent in Y&R vs. OLTL/GH. I think the secret to their success when taking over a soap is they try to recapture the magic and/or elements that made these shows phenomena in their days of glory. That means different things for each soap. For Y&R it would mean bringing back, of course, a focus on the legacy characters but also the suspenseful slower but exciting buildup of character-driven stories.

    I love Kale Browne! He would be perfect paired with Jess Walton, maybe a triangle with Nina. I hope he does join the show but that’s it no more FOJ at least for awhile.

    [quote=Horses]This show stinks. Every show that JFP has been involved with she eventually destroys. Y&R needs someone like Frank Valentini[/quote]

    I agree, too bad Frank and Ron cannot be cloned!

    I never want Frank & Ron near Y&R. It’s not a good fit. Ron’s writing is always ultra campy and just don’t want them near my soap and destroy it with their ugly campy storytelling.

    This. I like what they’re doing over at GH, but i don’t want Sharon to turn into Konny/Kate/Connie/Cate or a Psychic!Abby on Y&R. We already had to deal with MAB’s dumb stories for too long.

    Love Kale and would love to see any of my old friends from AW back on tv where they belong. The cast on Another World was seldomly an issue. It was almost always the writing that was the problem. The cast was usually top notch. So there is a lovely group of people out there that any soap would be lucky to have. It would not hurt my feelings if Jill started hiring some of these fine actors!

    I have never seen FV and RC do anything but camp. NEVER. Camp worked well in the ’80s when GH did it, but GH also did fine in the ’90s without all the camp and even the early 2000s. FV and RC, in my humble opinion, are not bringing back what worked for GH in the “glory days”, they are doing what they know how to do….write camp. They are great at spoofing soaps and not that great at writing soaps. That’s just how I feel about it. Not bashing them, because like I said there’s obviously an audience for that…but it’s just not my cup of tea, and Y&R is not THAT. I’d rather stick with Josh Griffith than to even give RC and FV a chance. As a matter of fact, I’d go as far as to say I’d rather have MAB back than RC…

    IMO camp and soaps don’t mix well. It cheapens the genre. And as the real fans above attest, camp just doesn’t work well on Y and R. I want realism and drama, which we (for the most part)usually get on this great show. Leave Josh alone for now to continue to try to craft the show into what it was before.

    GH’rs are loving their show right now, so let us all enjoy what currently is being aired. It seems the only fans who aren’t too happy right now are the Days contingent.

    What I don’t want are GH’rs trashing Y and R, because I’m sure we all could get started on IT.

    id like to see him come in as a rival Senator to his buddy Mark Pinter(Marc Wheeler) have Victor bring him to GC to unseat Wheeler and a triangle could develop between Jill/Wheeler and Kale’s new character. I think Kale/Braden/Pinter/Bergman would make for awesome TV

    [quote=DaveBedford]I was thinking if Y&R wanted to use Kale, he could play in a storyline with Sharon as her absentee father alongside her mom, Doris :) :D[/quote]

    No, NO, NO!!! Besides, the father is dead-not *absentee*.
