Get ready for the much-mentioned father of The Young and the Restless’ Leslie (Angell Conwell) and Tyler (Redaric Williams) to arrive in Genoa City. According to Horror Society.com, Tony Todd, best known for his roles in Platoon, Final Destination and the horror smash, Candyman, has landed the role of the incarcerated Gus Rogan. When asked about upcoming projects, Todd revealed,
Yeah, I’ve got a bunch of films in the can. There’s a film called Unbroken. There’s a film that I made in Wales called Dead of Nite, which is making its Australian debut in April and I’m part of that. I’m currently doing day work on and when I say day work, I just mean I consider it my day job. I’m working on The Young and the Restless that just celebrated its 40th anniversary. They came to me with a character that I just couldn’t refuse. The difference in working in the soap world, you have to come totally prepared and you’re there and you basically have one take. I look at that as a challenge and my character is really a unique one. I play a prisoner who’s falsely accused of murdering his wife. I’ve done 4 episodes so far and I’m going to do at least 20. So that’s what I’m doing right now, I just worked yesterday. It’s a whole new demographic, I have my reasons for everything that I do. READ MORE
Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and her family will have one less pitch fork wielder to contend with on The Bold and the Beautiful—for awhile at least. Soap Opera Digest is reporting Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) is temporarily leaving the sudser to film a role in the next Final Destination film (They're still making those?). MacInnes Wood pre-taped her scenes and is set to return to B&B in December. I never thought I'd ever say this, but I am glad she's coming back. B&B just wouldn't be the same without MacInnes Wood's campy, junior Joan Crawford meets Joan Collins take on Ridge (Ron Moss) and Taylor's (Hunter Tylo) bitchtastic daughter. Phoebe, I can feeeeeel you!!!
