‘Bold And The Beautiful’ Is Recasting A Popular Main Male Character, New Details

  • OnTheFlix
According to a new report from the folks over at Soapcentral, the Bold and The Beautiful crew is currently recasting a pretty popular main male character with former General Hospital Jasper "Jax" Jacks star Ingo Rademacher (above). He's being brought on to play character Thorne Forrester. Apparently, he was in the running against former Thorne actor Winsor Harmon. Winsor recently hopped on his official Twitter account to reveal that he had been replaced. He said that The Bold And The Beautiful executive producer/head writer Bradley Bell told him that they had decided to recast Thorne. This apparently didn't go over well with a lot of fans since Winsor had been playing the Thorne role since 1996. Winsor wrote, "Just spoke with Brad Bell and at this time he's decided to Recast Thorne. I wish the new actor and the show continued success." Rademacher talked to TVInsider.com about his Thorne

Daytime Emmys Preview: Soaps Still Top Draw for Kudos

For the third year in a row, the last four broadcast soap operas are all nominated for best drama at the Daytime Emmys.

David Michaels, senior vice president, Daytime Emmy Awards & Events for the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, says as few as three and as many as four serials can earn a nom, and the reason that all four serials made the cut this year is because once again there’s a slim difference between the number of votes received by the shows that have ranked in third and fourth place.

“It seems crazy to have four nominees out of four contenders,” says Tom O’Neil, founder and editor of Goldderby.com. “In general, showbiz awards reflect at most two-thirds of contenders, but that’s not etched in stone. No one believes any of these four soaps are unworthy.”

“It’s never completely a given you’ll be nominated,” says

Transgender Representation On TV Hitting New Highs, From ‘Transparent’ to ‘I Am Cait’

Transgender Representation On TV Hitting New Highs, From ‘Transparent’ to ‘I Am Cait’
Next year, Laverne Cox will play an Ivy League-educated lawyer in the CBS series “Doubt,” making her the first transgender actor to play a transgender series regular character on broadcast television. It’s a looming historic moment for television, and one in a series of recent turning points that indicates change and acceptance for the transgender community.

In 2015, Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover launched with viral force followed up by her reality series “I Am Cait.” In 2014, Amazon found a juggernaut in “Transparent.” The year prior, Cox was starting to become a household name for her performance in “Orange Is the New Black” and her transgender activism.

Yet, almost one year after Jenner’s announcement, transgender representation on television is still leaping over hurdles. “We still have a long way to go,” says Nick Adams, GLAAD’s director of programs and transgender media.

Daytime Emmys Preview: Soaps Keep Audiences With Long-Term Characters

Daytime Emmys Preview: Soaps Keep Audiences With Long-Term Characters
It’s debatable that there are any “new viewers” out there willing to commit to watching a network soap five days a week. However, the remaining four broadcast soaps have a strategy to maintain their existing audiences, and ward off the threat of cancellation, which has claimed their rivals in recent years: Shine a spotlight on beloved, long-term characters.

That strategy is evident in the episodes each of the four surviving soaps (“The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of Our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless”) selected as submissions for the Daytime Emmys drama series prize.

Both “General Hospital” submissions are loaded with veteran players, but couldn’t be more different in terms of content. An anniversary episode, featuring black and white segments, harkens back to the show’s early days. The episode resolves the “Fluke” storyline, explaining Luke Spencer’s bizarre behavior and how his parents died.

Nominations For The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.

Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths

Daytime Emmys 2015: Soap Showrunners Submit Most Emotional Episodes

Daytime Emmys 2015: Soap Showrunners Submit Most Emotional Episodes
In an era when soap production budgets have been drastically cut, showrunners are facing even tougher choices when it comes time to choose which episodes they’ll submit to win the Daytime Emmy for drama series.

But this year’s quartet of contenders say the decision ultimately comes down to an age-old strategy — aim for the heart.

There was a time when daytime serial producers had a lot more money to spend and the flashiest (read: priciest) episodes would typically be slamdunk Emmy submissions. Nowadays, showrunners are singling out the episodes that deliver emotional wallops.

“When the Emmys come around it takes a while to reflect back on the year before,” says “General Hospital” exec producer Frank Valentini. “We do quite a few episodes a year so we have to be very self-actualizing.”

“Gh” went with the first episode from its annual Nurses Ball (which had numerous entanglements) and also

The Best Soap Opera Moments of 2013
There may be only four broadcast soaps left but the folks at “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of Our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless” served up plenty of sudsy, sensational moments in 2013 — many of which will earn gold statues June 22 at the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

“Bold’s” most combustible moment last year was Katie ripping into her husband, Bill, and her sister, Brooke, over the affair they had while she battled post-partum depression.

“We submitted that for Outstanding Drama Series,” says Bradley Bell, nominated as “Bold’s” executive producer and head writer. “The storyline’s a timeless classic, and there were so many great performances.”
