DC #610: Y&R's Christian LeBlanc on Newman Family Fued, Tennesee Williams' 100th Birthday and Daytime Emmy Pre-Noms
He's B-A-A-A-A-CK! On today's Daytime Confidential podcast, Luke and Jamey welcome back the rascally Christian LeBlanc of The Young and the Restless. LeBlanc dishes his character Michael Baldwin's role in the explosive Newman arbitration story arc on Y&R, his upcoming appearances in celebration of the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival (held March 23-27 in New Orleans) and even weighs in on those controversial Daytime Emmy pre-nominations!
Tune in to hear the multiple Daytime Emmy winner wax in depth about his gig reading from Tennessee's works on Saturday, March 26 at 8pm at the Petit Theater du Vieux Carre on Jackson Square along with Caroll Baker (Baby Doll), Shirley Knight (Sweet Bird of Youth), Armistead Maupin (Tales of the City), Grace Zabriskie (Big Love) and John Waters (Hairspray).
LeBlanc also talks about judging the infamous "Stella" contest in Jackson Square on Sun. March 26 with Knight, all in honor of Tennessee's 100th birthday. Then he previews his hosting responsibilities for the Mad Hatter's Design Competition, sponsored by the Bayou Junior Women's Club of Thibodeaux, Louisiana on Sun., April, 3, with special guests Brandon Beemer (Owen, The Bold and the Beautiful) and Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe, Days of Our Lives).
The hilarious thesp also reveals he has a few upcoming comedy club appearances with another of our favorite Genoa citizens, Sean Kanan (Deacon). The rowdy pair will be appearing at 3 pm EST on May 14 at the Brokerage Entertainment Club in Bellmore, New York ( 2797 Merrick Road), and then at 12 pm EST on May 15 at Uncle Vinny's Comedy Club (520 Arnold Avenue) in Point Pleasant, New Jersey).
Then LeBlanc breaks down the complicated and ever-changing Daytime Emmy pre-nomination process for Luke and Jamey and issues quite a stern statement for actors who are complaining—get involved or stop bitchin'. Let's see if the DC boys can keep this podcast on the rails!
