Movie star Ryan Phillippe once broke network television ground by portraying the first openly gay teenager on a daytime soap opera. Now, for the first time since appearing as Billy Douglas on “One Life to Live,” Phillippe is set to return to an ABC series.
According to Deadline.com, Phillippe has signed on with ABC to star in “Secrets and Lies,” a crime mystery series based on an Australian series that has yet to debut. He will play the lead role: a man who finds the dead body of a young boy and becomes the prime suspect. In order to protect himself and his family, Phillippe’s character must find the real killer and clear his name. Actress Natalie Martinez, who was recently seen on the CBS series “Under the Dome,” has also signed on to play the mother of the murdered boy.
We’re just under 30 days away from the debut of new web series “Beacon Hill” and yesterday Open Book Productions/Bella Productions released a new trailer to get the anticipation rising. It turns out not everything is what it seems in Massachusetts politics!
In the new trailer, we get a closer look at Alicia Minshew’s (ex-Kendall, “All My Children”) reporter character Sara Preston. She’s returned home to Boston after her Senator grandfather has a stroke that paralyzes half of his body. But is Sara there to visit her ailing grandfather or has she been sent there to report on her family? We also catch a glimpse of Sara’s mother Claire, played by Crystal Chappell (ex-Carly, “Days of Our Lives.”) What’s in the envelope? And why the need to be discreet about it?
Huge congratulations are in order for CBS Daytime, as the network’s entire lineup managed to attract its largest weekly audience in more than eight years!
According to Nielsen ratings for the week of Monday, January 27 through Friday, January 31, “The Talk” averaged 3.19 million viewers — its largest weekly audience ever — while “Let’s Make a Deal” part one attracted 3.71 million viewers, and “Let’s Make a Deal” part two attracted 4.22 million viewers — also the show’s highest ratings ever. With 6.08 million viewers, “The Price Is Right” part one posted its highest ratings since December of 2004, while “The Price Is Right” part two garnered 7.12 million viewers, its highest since December 2005.
Get ready to see some serious drama from “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget Forrester; ex-Megan Dennison, “The Young and the Restless”), who’ll be appearing in an upcoming episode of “Criminal Minds” that sounds like it might give her soap gigs a run for their money!
Titled “Gabby,” the Wednesday, February 26 episode of the CBS drama has Jones starring as Kate Hoffer, the mother of a 4-year-old girl who goes missing while visiting a relative in Mississippi. The BAU uncovers some startling truths in their search for the child — but will suspicions about Kate be part of those revelations?
Tune into CBS to catch the episode at a special time — 10PM ET/PT on Wednesday, February 26 — to find out!
As we previously reported, soap actress Crystal Hunt (Stacy Morasco, “One Life to Live;” Lizzie Spaulding, “Guiding Light”) was arrested back in December for allegedly smashing a glass into another woman’s face. And she’s now officially been charged with the crime, meaning she could face up to four years in prison!
Yesterday’s “General Hospital” episode sparked some fan excitement regarding Steve Burton, who used to play Jason Morgan on the sudser but now portrays Dylan McAvoy on “The Young and the Restless.” After the infamous Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis) teased that Jason is very much alive and well (if only in a cryogenic state) and then showed a picture of Burton onscreen, viewers began wondering if the actor is leaving his Genoa City home and returning to Port Charles! But is it true?
James Franco has been appearing just about everywhere these days, but is another stint as “General Hospital’s” Franco in the works? According to a new report by Showbiz 411, the sudser’s headwriter, Ron Carlivati, is trying to make it happen!
The website reports that Carlivati wishes to bring Franco back not as the crazy art dealer who basically terrorized the town (and later was redeemed via a brain tumor excuse when Roger Howarth stepped into the role), but as himself — confronting the fictitious Franco!
We reached out to a “GH” publicist for more details regarding this storyline/actor twist, but at press time, the rep had no comment.
As we previously reported, former “All My Children” actress Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) appeared on OWN’s “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”last week to discuss her initial shock regarding “AMC’s” cancellation, her fears of never working again and some fun details regarding her new role on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids.” And now, the network has released a video clip of the daytime icon’s spot on the show!
