On the notoriety of that role, he nabbed the title role in the TV movie James Dean (which earned him a multitude of honors, including an Emmy nomination).
Ever the mystery, his sexual ambiguity has been labeled both provocative … and aggravating, and he continues to confound, with such projects as Interior.Leather.Bar alongside such family fare as Oz The Great And Powerful

Heather Tom has been a staple of daytime television for more than two decades, beginning with her star-making role on "The Young and the Restless" in the 1990s and continuing into "One Life to Live" and currently "The Bold and the Beautiful." She's the two-time defending champ for Best Drama Actress, and if she wins again this year she'll tie soap opera queen Erika Slezak as daytime's most awarded actress. -Break- Daytime Emmy pre-nominations shower 'General Hospital' and 'Young and Restless,' shun online soaps Slezak played Victoria Lord on "One Life" for 42 years, from 1971 all the way through to its ill-fated online revival in 2013. For her work she won six Daytime Emmys for Best Drama Actress, more than any other woman. She is tied with Justin Deas as the second most awarded daytime actor overall; they both trail Anthony Geary, who won his seventh Emmy for "Genera. »
Greg Vaughan and his wife are splitting after nine years together, the soap opera actor announced on his Instagram. Vaughan, 40, and Dutch model Touriya Haoud, 36, wed in 2006.

"With dear love for each other and our family, as parents first and foremost, we kindly ask our space and privacy be respected at this difficult time." Vaughan gained fame as Lucky Spencer on General Hospital. »

For regular TV viewers, one of the most gratifying things is that we’re at a time when a gay character’s story is no longer predominantly focused on their sexuality. The coming out story is still out there (and still necessary for those who have yet to step out of the closet) but when a show on the young-demographic network like The CW brings in a gay character and the story isn’t focused on his being gay, progress has been made.
Last year on the hit CW series, The Originals, we were introduced to the character of Josh, who was immediately open about being gay and was dealing with a much bigger piece of drama – he’d just been turned into a vampire by the villainous – but oh-so-sexy – vampire/werewolf hybrid, Klaus (played by Joseph Morgan) and had to learn how to survive.

Will they give peace a chance? The CW's The Originals returns Tuesday, April 15 (8/7c) with steamy new werewolf Jackson — played by former Bunheads and General Hospital star Nathan Parsons — hoping to get the vampires and wolves to move past their decades-old beef and make nice. Or at the very least be frenemies. Parsons, who will also join the cast of HBO's True Blood in its final season, gave TV Guide Magazine the lowdown on his new supernatural life.

TV Land has ordered 12 episodes of Younger, a comedy from Darren Starr. The series follows a 40-something single mom who ends up leading a double-life, including one where she passes herself as a 26-year-old. The series has an amazing cast led by Sutton Foster with Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar and Miriam Shor. A fall debut is planned.
I still miss Bunheads.
On a related note, here’s the trailer for the Rosemary’s Baby mini-series. I have to admit, the changes have me intrigued.

The soap bubble that was supposed to burst is still very much intact.
Ratings are up at the four remaining soaps — “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” on CBS, “General Hospital” on ABC and “Days of Our Lives” on NBC — and, in this DVR era, any kind of gain is cause for celebration.
One reason for the increases could be the simple fact that there are fewer shows to compete for the pool of fans. Today’s soaps live alongside game and talkshows such as CBS’ “Let’s Make a Deal” and ABC’s “The Chew,” and a bigger variety of programming for viewers to choose from seems to be helping all the networks. »

The Daytime Emmy Awards is used to being in a state of flux.
The kudosfest, still negotiating a home for this year’s telecast, has switched networks almost annually for four decades and has been beset by a 20-year ratings slide. Case in point: In 1993, the broadcast garnered 22 million viewers. Last year, viewers of the Hln telecast numbered 913,000.
According to Gabriel Gornell, who exec produced the past two telecasts, audience apathy may be due to the ceremony’s strong focus on one genre: soap operas. “There’s a long history in building this special around daytime dramas,” says Gornell.
While only five of 2013’s 118 Emmy-nominated shows were soaps, nine of the 19 awards were soap-centric. Talkers, gameshows and kids’ programming were in the minority, so there probably wasn’t much of a draw for viewers who aren’t aficionados of daytime dramas like “General Hospital.”
The Daytime Emmys also face a demographic challenge. »

Dorothy: What kind of a horse is that? I’ve never seen a horse like that before!
Guardian of the Emerald City Gates: And never will again, I fancy. There’s only one of him and he’s it. He’s the Horse of a Different Color you’ve heard tell about.

I love to read. I read every chance I get, including always bringing a book with me to read on my lunch hour.
I don’t get people who don’t read.
They make me crazed.
The other day when I came into the lounge, I noticed that someone had left three books in the lounge; a couple of bodice rippers, and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, whose first book was The Kite Runner. Both of Hosseini’s books reflect his Afghani childhood and heritage, and both are equally brilliant, though I »

ABC wants to expand Good Morning America to three hours, the New York Daily News claims, which would let it compete against the four hour Today Show. The article gets confusing, however, since it seems to discuss local programming

EW discussed wigs with TV’s premiere wig-featuring drama, The Americans. It turns out series stars Keri Russel and Matthew Rhys aren’t the only ones who are costumed in a wig. A lot of men who would have had a comb-over in the 80s sport a shaved head nowadays. That seems ironic.

Sean Kanan is out as A.J. Quartermaine on ABC's General Hospital and the popular suds star is now pounding the pavement — the one that leads directly to CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful. Starting June 13, Kanan will resume the role of Deacon Sharpe, the sleazy con man who raised hell on B&B and its sister soap The Young and the Restless off and on from 2000 to 2012. So what can we Deacon fans expect? B&B boss Bradley Bell gave TV Guide Magazine an exclusive preview.

EW has learned exclusively that a dream team of ’80s heartthrobs like Jack Wagner and Rob Estes (Melrose Place), as well as Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club) and Antonio Sabato Jr. (General Hospital) – as well as the aforementioned Peter Brady and Hercules – will take part in a new miniseries called Heartbreakers for Investigation Discovery.
Slated to premiere later this year, the three-parter will script true stories about how the perfect catch can sometime turn out to be the perfect criminal. »

She is irreplaceable and irrepressible and rarely gives interviews, but when Jane Elliot does decide to talk she damn well delivers! On the occasion of General Hospital's 51st anniversary, TV Guide Magazine spoke with the Emmy-winning actress about her legacy as bitch supreme Tracy Quartermaine. Elliot also cut loose on a variety of other topics, from her most famous leading man (Elvis Presley!) to her close, but chemically dangerous, friendship with Days of Our Lives' Deidre Hall. You'll never guess what the two soap queens plan to do when they retire!
TV Guide Magazine: We know you hate compliments and this will probably annoy the crap out of you but we gotta ask: Do you have any idea how beloved you are by the Gh fans? They're especially excited about your Emmy pre nom, since you've long been a hold-out when it comes to awards.

I feel the need to climb to the top of a mountain and shout at the top of my lungs to watch Legit on Fxx before it falls victim as another show worth your time that couldn’t find its audience in time. It’s smart, edgy, and sweet and comedies like this are few and far between.
Legit isn’t your typical comedy. Standup comedian, Jim Jefferies is trying to do something different, and bring his own sensibilities to the TV comedy realm. “When you’re with your friends,” he explains. “You laugh a little bit, you laugh a little bit, and then something big happens. I think a lot of network sitcoms it’s just laughs per minute. I don’t think they even care how big the laughs are. As long as they can pack so many into that timeline. We have episodes where there’s maybe five, »

Somehow, the most inexplicable thing about Maladies is that it’s being released around the United States for release; considering the film’s deliberately experimental and impenetrable quality, this is no easy feat to achieve. But the overriding question upon watching Maladies is as follows: who is this movie for? Its star, James Franco, has become as well-known for his avant-garde work in cinema and modern art as well as he’s known for being a James Dean lookalike in the cult TV show Freaks and Geeks or for his work in Apatow-era mainstream comedies like Pineapple Express. So Maladies may be something he just wanted to do for kicks, but it’s hard to imagine this film raising any level of interest from all but the most dedicated of completists.
In Maladies, Franco stars as James, an actor of some renown and »

I’ve never seen an episode of ABC’s Nashville, but I’ve been hearing so much about the closeted gay character Will Lexington this season, played by one of my favorite multi-slashes (actor/model/singer) Chris Carmack, that I decided to give it a go, especially since it was supposed to be a pivotal week for Will.
But before we get to Will, let’s talk a bit about Connie Britton who plays country queen bee Rayna James on this show. How fabulous is Britton? This is an actress who can move effortlessly from Spin City to Friday Night Lights to American Horror Story. And … she spent a year studying in China during her freshman year at college with NY senator and faboo ally Kirsten Gillibrand).
Anyway, her character is walking through Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, talking about being blacklisted, and how country radio doesn’t like controversial artists. »
As werewolf Jackson on "The Originals" (Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. on The CW), Nathan Parsons is on the cusp of diving into a potentially bloody new battle as the werewolves attempt to rise up and wrest back control of New Orleans from those pesky vampires and witches. It won't be easy, but Parsons has high hopes -- though he, like Jackson, doesn't think Klaus (Joseph Morgan) can be trusted. I talked to the "General Hospital" alum about his role, howling fans and why it's okay for the girl his character was meant to marry -- Hayley -- to hang out with the enemy. It seems Jackson is in cahoots with Klaus. Is that a good idea? I don't think Jackson is even remotely interested in being a hybrid. I put my pack first, but at the same time Klaus is really powerful and has a lot of connections the werewolves need, »

Previously on Teen Wolf, Kira‘s mom’s dead ex-boyfriend hijacked Stiles who hijacked the Oni who killed Allison who was the ex-girlfriend of Scott who was half-dating Kira, which, in Beacon Hills, is called The Circle of Life.
Chris Argent is exactly the guy you want on your team in the minutes after the death of your girlfriend/best friend/his daughter. He once helped his own wife stab herself in the heart with a kitchen knife, you’ll remember, so he’s pretty good at compartmentalizing his emotions. Alison’s murder has him rattled, but not so shaken up that he can’t coach Lydia and Scott and Isaac to convince the police that she was taken down by some muggers, who just happened to be carrying Japanese swords, I guess.
The gang makes it through the interrogation, barely, after which: Isaac follows Chris home like that little »

An eight-car Chicago commuter train plowed across a platform and scaled an escalator at an underground station at one of the nation's busiest airports early Monday, injuring 32 people on board, officials said. No one suffered life-threatening injuries in the Blue Line derailment at O'Hare International Airport, Chicago Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago said during a morning briefing. An enormous disaster was avoided thanks to the timing of the crash at 02:50 a.m. The bustling station is usually packed with travelers making their way to or from Chicago from the major airport, and a Chicago Transit Authority official said the crash »
