“General Hospital’s” Amber Tamblyn (ex-Emily Quartermaine) and Lexi Ainsworth (ex-Kristina Corinthos) won the hearts of soap fans during their time in Port Charles, and now the two actresses are set to win over more as characters in new pilots!
Tamblyn, who left her “GH” role back in 2001 and recently wrapped up a season-long arc on “House,” has reportedly signed on as a female lead in CBS’ drama pilot, “Anatomy of Violence,” which also stars Skeet Ulrich (“Scream”). Written and executive produced by “Homeland’s” Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary, the drama follows an FBI criminal psychiatrist (Ulrich) who partners with an FBI agent (Tamblyn) with whom he shares a troubled past.
For the first time since the show launched back in the 1980′s, the female co-host’s name in “LIVE!” will lead the shows permanent title when “LIVE! with Kelly” becomes “LIVE! with Kelly and …” That’s right folks, “LIVE!” has found its permanent co-host after nearly a year-long search.
The new season of “LIVE!” kicks off on Monday, September 3, when Kelly Ripa sits down as solo host for the first time. She had previously been joined by 59 different men and women with experience in all areas of broadcasting and entertainment since former co-host Regis Philbin left the co-hosting chair back in November 2011. That changes, however, when the show debuts that special someone (one of the 59 individuals already seen) on the Tuesday, September 4 broadcast of the popular daytime talk show.
