Inspired by Babs and Chris Goutman's recent casting coup, I got to thinking about what the next ultimate casting power move should be for the best soap not currently airing on television —As The Executives Turn. Since I don't see Eric Braeden leaving The Young and the Restless to play a new German mob boss, or Mikkos Cassadine on General Hospital anytime soon, I came up with the next best thing. What if Babs, Auntie Ri Ri and Uncle Paul convinced Bob Guza's muse herself, Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda) to join daytime's hottest show in the role of Victoria Newman McNeil Howard Carlton Hellstrom?
I'm sorry, licensing fees be damned, I can count six people right off the top of my head who could be shown the door in order for Ms. Marcil to make her way to Genoa City. When she last returned to GH, 800,000 viewers returned with her. Name another soap star who can spike numbers like that? Y&R should get Marcil's people on the horn ASAP! READ MORE
First his on and off canvas wife Amelia Heinle (Victoria) turns up on CSI: Miami, then Luckinbill takes a stab at the spin off show and later in May, he and the wife, along with Lesli Kay (Felicia; B&B) will guest star in an episode of The Ghost Whisperer. Could CBS be farming out their actors as a way to cross promote the daytime and prime time shows? Maybe they are trying to save the industry...
Call me Miss Marple, because I am just cracking a few the mysteries that some DC readers have asked me about. As I was watching CSI: Miami, I got the shock of my life (watch and you will see why) when I saw The Young and the Restless star, Amelia Heinle (Victoria), on tonight's episode. Don't fret if you've missed the show, you can view it on CBS's site tomorrow. Heinle will be spreading her acting abilities even further when she and her on and off screen hubby Thad Luckinbill (JT), along with The Bold and the Beautiful's, Lesli Kay (Felicia) all appear on The Ghost Whisperer May 1.
I guess Paul's allure has worn off of Nikki..... Anyone can guess who's out for Rick?
