Former All My Children and Buffy the Vampire star Sarah Michelle Gellar has landed a role opposite Oscar winner Robin Williams in the comedy pilot Crazy Ones, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Reportedly, Gellar will play Sydney Roberts, the daughter of Williams’ Simon Roberts.
She's described as pretty, intense, driven, organized and burdened with being practical. Sydney is the creative director and life and soul of the Roberts and Roberts Advertising Agency at the center of the comedy. She wants to be her father but is too busy having to parent him.
No. 5: Hunter Tylo vs. Katherine Kelly Lang, The Bold and the Beautiful
Their characters, Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), have fought over the affections of fickle fashion designer Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss) since 1990 on CBS Daytime's international hit serial The Bold and the Beautiful. However, Moss' recent exit from the series—after 25 years—inadvertently led to a real-life Twitter dust up between Tylo and Lang!
When a pot-stirring fan tweeted Lang accusations of Tylo allegedly failing to stop her fans from spreading "vicious rumors/gossip" about Lang, the blonde soap beauty called her brunette co-star out, tweeting: "Hunter, why don't you talk to me?" Ouch!
Tylo responded quickly, denying the messy fan's claims and asked Lang not to get "caught up in the chaos." The fact that Lang was so quick to believe an accusation from a fan makes you wonder, what is really going on up in the House of Forrester? READ MORE
Starr might have broken James Ford's heart during One Life to Live's final week on the air, but the character's hunky portrayer Nic Robuck is feeling no pain!

DC EXCLUSIVE: Eva La Rue Talks Reprising All My Children Role Opposite Pal Sarah Michelle Gellar For ABC Finale!By Jamey Giddens on September 22, 2011
How refreshing is it to see primetime stars like Eva La Rue and Sarah Michelle Gellar stand up and proudly proclaim their stints on daytime television? The real-life pals, who met when they shared a dressing room on ABC Daytime's All My Children for a time during the 90's, returned to the series on Wednesday, La Rue reprising the popular role of Dr. Maria Santos and Gellar doing a cameo as an unamed mental patient, who swore she was both Erica Kane's daughter and was in an epic battle with vampires, paying homage to both of Gellar's signature roles. You know, as the original Kendall Hart on AMC and later a certain slayer named Buffy.
All one has to do is spend some time on any number of message boards, Twitter, Facebook, or the comments section on this blog this morning, to see what a treat their visit to Pine Valley was for fans. I caught up with the striking La Rue, who is busy with another season of the hit CBS procedural CSI: Miami, to talk about what AMC leaving the network airwaves means to her.
The busy actress and spokesperson (in addition to her primetime gig, she has an endorsement deal with Crest and is active in supporting the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation), took time out to speak with Daytime Confidential about her thoughts on the so-called "soap stigma" and how her stint in Pine Valley helped her hone her craft.
Now that AMC is moving online, have we seen the last of Dr. Maria Santos? Keep reading to find out.
Daytime Confidential: You've been very vocal about your emotions concerning the end of All My Children on ABC and even reprised your iconic role of Dr. Maria Santos twice for the network finale. What do you say to those in Hollywood who love to harp on the so-called "soap stigma"?
Eva La Rue: I am so sad that the show is ending. It breaks my heart. AMC was like a family to me. I think some people will always look at daytime actors with the "soap stigma," but the truth is that so many daytime actors have made the big leap into primetime and feature films. I think the rest of the industry has realized that daytime actors are talented and well-trained, and that is why people like Josh Duhamel, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Eva Longoria and so many people before them have been so successful. Daytime is a tough medium. It you can make it on daytime, you can make it in the rest of the business.
