SOURCE: Young and Restless Casting Director PEEVED Over Christel Khalil Casting Drama!






I am hearing legendary casting director Judy Blye Wilson is fit to be tied over allegations Christel Khalil's agency tried to send her out on an audition for The Young and the Restless. On Aug. 7, The Wrap published an article detailing Khalil's reported beef with Mavrick Artists Agency. According to the website, Khalil has filed suit againt the firm, which allegedly :

failed to uphold their end of the representation contract. She charges that during a very busy pilot season this year, she was only sent out on two auditions for series regular roles. She was not sent on any commercial auditions.

Khalil accuses the defendants of intentionally not paying her for a guest spot on "2 Broke Girls." The complaint also alleges the agency essentially stole money from the actress above its 10 percent commission.

Perhaps most egregiously however, Mavrick Artists Agency allegedly sent Khalil out to audition for a role on her own show, "Young and the Restless," which "collectively embarrassed, if not mortified" the actress. She has four times been nominated for an Emmy in that role, once winning for the role of Lily Winters Ashby.

"The agency may not know their client is on The Young and the Restless, but do people really think Judy doesn't know who is on her own show?" said a source close to Wilson. "She [Wilson] never took a meeting with them [Mavrick Artists Agency] about Christel."

Wilson, famed for discovering Sarah Michelle Gellar and Josh Duhamel, while serving as casting director at All My Children, wants it clear Khalil's issues with Mavrick Artist Agency have nothing to do with her office at Y&R, says the insider.

"It's all so ridiculous," sighs the mole. "Judy is one of the most professional people in the business. She doesn't want her name associated with this nonsense."

Of course she doesn't want to be associated with this mess. Why would it be her fault anyways? What a big mess... poor Christel!! LOL!! Laughing out loud

I'm confused, it doesn't sound like anyone tried to imply she(or Y&R) was responsible. Just the Agent/Agency. Which Christel has every right to sue and be upset with.

So....let me make sure I understand this.

Judy is upset because this debacle makes it look like she scheduled an interview with CK through her management? Yeah, I never thought about it from her perspective, but it does make her look bad.

I still think that this has more to do with CK and her management. Her management should know where she works? and even if the interview was off site, wouldn't CK have a contact name and shouldn't she have recognized it?

I vote to fire CK (Lily) and rehire her to play Cane and a recast Lily's daughter Wink .

I think CK's shady management team didn't even bother to check what the show or role was. They probably just told her to 'go here' and read for a part, without even getting any names or specific information.

They probably treated it like a general blind casting call.

She needs to sue the heck out of them, because now it's putting her actual role/job in jeopardy. Look for Lily to get less and less airtime...JFP will likely try to get revenge on her.

So true! Can we just be rid of her? Maybe once this mess is over, she can get a better agent and find another gig. We can only hope...

Whether or not CK is actually a good actress is beside the point. I feel sorry for her, and I don't blame her one bit for being pissed off at her agent. Talk about mismanagement!

Isn't she the same old heffa that hired NuKyle? Bitch please there's nothing professional about that mess.

I seriously doubt this woman hired NuKyle.

He was also a part of that Hollywood Heights show too, wasn't he?

So that makes NuNoah, NuAbby, NuSummer, and NuKyle all Hollywood Heights actors...most likely hired by the EP of that show....Jill Faren Phelps. smh.

Though of the four, three of them I actually like in their roles

Boring story, almost as boring as Lily.

Neil, you got stoned drunk in Evanston, and were going back to Rose's hotel room only after a week after Dru's body went off the cliff. For shame, man, for shame.

Phelps and some of her friends said they didn't even read/test for their roles. Kyle and Summer were two. Burton, well....

I do like Noah. And Chavez. Several new faces/recasts, no.

If Hartley Sawyer wasnt in HH, why in the phuck is he on Y&R? Lantern-Jaw Shaggy-Doo is the worst re-cast in Y&R history. Blake Hood was energetic, good-looking, well-built, and looked every bit a phucking Abbott.

Since Goof-ball Idiot was brought in as Kyle, he sucks. He has taken the life out of the Summer Paternity's story-line EVERY single time he has come on.

It's too bad Kyle didnt go in the coma.

Judy Blye Wilson is All My Children's old casting director. I thought she had a 50% success rate. She is known to hire for aesthetics/looks mostly. If you get one good one from her, you will usually get one equally bad one too.

oh wow. I seriously thought that guy was on HH.

So now it really makes ABSOLUTELY no sense for why he's still on Y&R. I don't think he has the "look" for the part. Even with a haircut, he'd look weird to me. His acting is ridiculous...and just UGH.

I thought this new regime of Y&R would recognize a mistake early and just get rid of it (Adriana)...but I guess Kyle works for them...

Phelps should just keep away from casting. STlLL have never read reason behind recast of Kyle.

Well, Phelps should just keep away period.

Sanka9, after reading that article, I hope they entrust the show's head writing in Kay Alden. The lady has paid her dues and deserves this. She could mentor promising writers in the business.

Sony wanted to take creative control out of the Bells hands I don't think they would welcome Kay Alden because of her ties with them.

But so far everything else didn't work. At one point Sony MUST see that if they don't want the show to fail. The show didn't work when Lynn Marie Latham had control over Y&R. The show was a mess under Maria Arena Bell and now is under Griffith/Phelps.

Ed Scott and Kay Alden were the last people where the show was a creative success. If Sony can't see that and is denying them a come back because of their ties to the Bells than they set this show up for failure. And I don't expect all these talents that Y&R still has to hang around forever and watch this train wreck. If Sony continues this way Stafford will only be one of many who are "completely done".

I doubt that Case and Bregman, who already have a career outside acting, are tied to the job neither are people like Walton or Thomas Scott. Muhney is another one that easily could find work somewhere else. Bergman and Braeden have egos that need to be pleased, so I doubt they will hide as extras on this show forever. And now that Stafford left I think that's exactly where Bergman is headed. Sony AND CBS need to react.

I grew up watching my stories, but this Y&R regime have me perplexed. Why are they hanging on to such dead-weight actors like Heinle, Khalil, NuKyle, NuAbby? Every time I see them on my screen I just SMH.

JillPhil is considered a success because the Show is profitable. Profitable.

She is spinning gold for SONY and CBS because she is doing it with people who are working for near-free. Red Williams, Hartley Sawyer, nuKyle, Cane's asst, Lily-not-on-contract, nuAbby. They are all on 3 times a week, and cost almost nothing to the bottom line.

Thats why Michelle had to go, and why Peter Bergman is next, and the smae reason who Nikki is a 'Matron' now. The vets cost money, and they have to either accept a pay cut, or go.

HeyMon, I've read that there are budget overruns on "Y&R" recently. There were on MaBell's watch, too, but Killer Phelps was brought on to correct that problem in particular. Oh, well. If true, it proves that she can't do anything right.
