Co-creator of “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” Ryan Murphy, shared some very exciting news today: “All My Children” alum Finn Wittrock (Damon Miller) is the newest cast member to join the show!
“Thrilled to announce the very talented FINN WITTROCK has joined the cast,” the exec tweeted.
When news first hit that the controversial novel “50 Shades of Grey” was going to be made into a movie, rumors within the daytime community started spreading: “Days of our Lives’” James Scott (EJ DiMera) was reportedly being considered for the lead role of Christian Grey, a handsome yet tormented billionaire who lures a young woman named Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) into his dark world of sexual fantasies.
With his Salem experience, Scott seemed perfect for the role. But alas, “Once Upon a Time’s” Jamie Dornan was cast, instead. Fast forward to today: The official trailer for the film — due out on Valentine’s Day weekend 2015 — has just been released. So we’re curious: Do you think the producers were right to cast Dornan in the role? Or would Scott have made a better Christian Grey for the EL James written novel-turned-movie? Watch the trailer after the jump and let us know in the comment section below!
It’s been widely reported that former “Days of our Lives” actress Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed) is set to join the season five cast of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” which follows several wealthy ladies in the world’s most famous zip code as they party it up during wild nights, deal with family dynamics and duke it out for supremacy within their click, but will a former “DAYS” co-star be joining her?
Daytime fans haven’t seen the face of Keith Hamilton Cobb in quite some time: Since starring as “All My Children’s” Noah Keefer from 1995-1996 and later as “The Young and the Restless’” Damon Porter from 2003-2005, we’ve hardly heard a word — but now he’s back with an all-new theater show!
The East Coast native has written a piece titled “American Moor” that mixes race issues, America and Shakespeare’s “Othello,” which he’ll be performing for one night only — Monday, August 11 — at The Luna Stage in West Orange, New Jersey.
For more information and to purchase tickets, check out the theater’s official website.
Lay out the red carpet: “Criminal Minds” star Shemar Moore will be returning to “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City as Malcolm Winters this fall!
Ambyr Childers got her fair share of drama as “All My Children’s” Colby Chandler — a role she played from mid-2006 to mid-2008 — but her latest role casts a shadow over anything that went down in Pine Valley: The Arizona native has been cast in NBC’s upcoming series, “Aquarius,” which follows LA Police Sergeant Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny) as he tries to track and catch infamous killer Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony).
Miss seeing former soap star Jeff Branson on the screen? You’re in luck! The actor, who has portrayed “The Young and the Restless’” Ronan Malloy, “All My Children’s” Jonathan Lavery and “Guiding Light’s” Shayne Lewis, will be appearing on tonight’s episode of TNT’s “Perception!”
Says an official show description: “When an infant is reported stolen, Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook) hunts down the kidnapper and makes a very bizarre discovery. As Pierce (Eric McCormack) and Moretti investigate a related murder, they find that there might be another child out there who needs their help. Meanwhile, Donnie and Moretti discuss their future together when Donnie looks into buying a house in the suburbs.”
“Perception” airs tonight, Tuesday, July 22, on TNT at 10/9 C.
Most of the population seems to love former “General Hospital” star John Stamos (Ex-Blackie), but perhaps not quite as much as “The Talk’s” co-host Sheryl Underwood. The actor, who’s also known as Uncle Jesse from the 1980s sitcom “Full House,” will be appearing on the Friday, July 25 episode of the talk show, and co-host Julie Chen surprised Underwood with the news during a recent taping of a promo shot. Check out her hilarious reaction here, and don’t forget to catch Stamos’ appearance this Friday!
“Days of our Lives’” Casey Moss (JJ Deveraux) is taking a page out of “Rock of Ages” and hitting the stage on Los Angeles’ famed Sunset Strip!
The actor and his band — Eyes of One — will be opening for Fozzy’s CD release party on Thursday, July 24 at the Whiskey A Go Go.
