The Young and the Restless star Kevin Schmidt (Noah) has snagged a new role opposite Valerie Bertinelli (Touched by an Angel, One Day at a Time) on TBS. The untitled comedy is based around a newly single mom (Bertinelli) running her own lumber business while raising her two children.
Schmidt will play Bertinelli's son, who is said to be a sharp-witted, but insecure teen. No word yet on when the series is set to air.
Fans who can't get enough Schmidt on Y&R can also see him online. The actor is staring in Poor Paul, a series about three college roommates that are navigating through life. Schmidt plays Justin, who is called "annoyingly smart." The shows are five minutes long and air every Tuesday at 1 P.M. EST on KoldCast.TV, MySpace and YouTube.
Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, General Hospital: Night Shift) has taken to his blog once again. Tristan is giving fans the lowdown on the differences between Night Shift and your typical Daytime Drama while suggesting that the Night Shift format may work for other soaps such as All My Children and One Life to Live as a way to sustain the genre.
Here's a glimpse:
This means that any of the ABC soaps, AMC, OLTL and GH could foster new offspring by using the same formula and format that created NS. By reaching into to the rich historical vaults all of these shows have, and bringing in a familiar face or two to anchor them, a whole new generation of soaps could evolve. NS, although an offspring of GH hasn't paid it any attention at all. And it doesn't need to. GH is the parent but its child can do its own thing. It's not bound by the weight of history created by its parent. Because the most important asset a daytime soap has ……….is its history.
With what NS has demonstrated so far, we maybe looking at a whole new way to save daytime without actually "saving the show".
Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, General Hospital / Night Shift) is talking Night Shift on his blog. It's an interesting look as to where Robert Scorpio is heading.
My first show was an introduction. From here on in it gets gritty. Maybe a little to real. I have just shot some scenes which were quite disturbing for me, so I can't gauge how the public are going to deal with them. We are looking at the mortality of what, till now, has been an iconic hero. What's approaching will alter some of that.
Some people are qoing to feel quite uneasy at the upcomming material. I can't remember a person in daytime, much less any other time, ever putting themselves in the pathway of reality quite like we have here.
I think it's quite unique. How it will be percieved, I have no opinion on right now.
There's no question NS is breaking some interesting story. It may in fact be a first. But soap stories don't usually confront issues like this with characters like me. I cannot imagine Gloria ever allowing something like this to take place on her watch.
But the challenge, as an actor, was just plain undeniable. And I am for it.
We'll talk further as it develops.

The heartthrob states, "It's the story of a young, unpopular girl who finds this pinto pony who is a bit of a renegade and a down-and-out horse trainer," he tells me. "These three come together to pursue their dreams of coming together to compete in elite horse competitions."
