The Young and the Restless Stars Turn Out For Premiere of Kristoff St. John's 'A Man Called God' (PHOTOS)By Daytime Confidential on April 24, 2014
The Young and the Restless' Redaric Williams, Angell Conwell, Mishael Morgan, Cady McClain and General Hospital's Jon Lindstrom howed their support for Kristoff St. John's A Man Called God at the 2014 International Beverly Hills Film Festival on April 23.
The official synopsis describes A Man Called God as,
A full length documentary, from the visionary mind of Emmy Award winning Producer, Writer, Actor, Kristoff St. John and directed by Blaxpoitation Icon, Christopher St John. In this unique, compelling documentary filmed over thirty years ago, the St John family embarks on a spiritual journey from Los Angeles, California to Southern India to search for God. They find 'God' living in a remote village, surrounded by thousands of mesmerized followers. Heralded as an Avatar or a God Man, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is one of India's most prolific gurus in India today. With a fan base of 50 Million people worldwide, Sai Baba performs modern day miracles; healing the sick and diseased, materializing solid objects out of the air. The St John family, Christopher, Maria and 14-year-old Kristoff are slowly swallowed up by Sai Baba and his cult as they participate in the spiritual daily 'Ashram' routine, documenting on film their treacherous visit. The cult eventually overwhelms the family, with Sai Baba revealing his demonic thirst for pedophilia and other evils. A lair of lies, deceit, secrecy, sexual deviancy and murder, all under the unsuspecting banner of A MAN CALLED GOD. A family deceived and destroyed, by the largest modern day cult, thriving globally today.

It's no secret Cady McClain (ex-Dixie) was a staunch supporter of Prospect Park's efforts to bring back All My Children and sister show One Life to Live. In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan, The Young and the Restless transplant recalls the experience of enduring AMC's second cancellation. Here's an excerpt:
TV Guide Magazine: Are you still stinging from the failure of Prospect Park's reboot of AMC?
McClain: When you watch a beloved show come to an end and see the toll it takes on everyone with the production and the fans who have loved and supported it, it's like the death of an entire family. The experience with Prospect Park was nightmarish and heartbreaking. I was a big supporter of the show and what they tried to do with it online, but the powers that be who held the purse strings did not have their plan in place. It was all rather sad. [Laughs] Now there is nothing to bitch about! I'm, like, "You people at Y&R don't even know how bad it can get!" Every time I drive on the lot at CBS, I say a big prayer of thanks and gratitude. I hate to say it — and I would never wish those soaps to have been cancelled ever — but the gift of that loss is that it put a hot fire under everybody's ass. The surviving shows got their s--t together and everybody — actors, writers, producers — stopped taking their jobs for granted and worked a lot harder to make the most of the opportunity. It also made the networks realize how much these shows mean to the public.
All My Children superstar Cady McClain first airs as Kelly on The Young and the Restless this week. Meanwhile, The Bold and the Beautiful's Rick (Jacob Young) and Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) arrive in Genoa City for the fashion show. Watch this week's Y&R promo after the jump!
About a year and a half ago, Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) came to Genoa City to reunite with his former love, Avery (Jessica Collins) on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless. Little did he know, he would also meet his biological mother and a psycho father!
Perhaps the biggest surprise, however, has been Dylan's war buddy Ben "Stitch" Rayburn (Sean Carrigan) evolving from a sounding board to a leading man in his own right. At the show’s 41st anniversary celebration, Burton and Carrigan revealed the secret to their onscreen chemistry, why Dylan and Avery’s happiness will be shortlived and what's up with Stitch and Dylan's new sis Victoria (Amelia Heinle).
“My first day on set he [Burton] came to me and was like, ‘Hey man. You’re playing Stitch, We’re war buddies. Let’s get to know each other.’ And the rest is history," said Carrigan of how he and the soap superstar first bonded. "He’s been amazing from the first day I started, and that’s why I’m still here on the show.” READ MORE
