    Of all the ‘stunt casting’ done on all the soaps, I HATE the CBS stunt casting of the Big Brother contestants.

    SZima replied

    I stand by my original comment!!
    He wouldn’t be where he is without the nepotism.
    Maybe they got lucky with this one, but most are duds.

    Dr Helen Ruth replied

    I totally agree with you.


  4. Richard says:

    Another meathead who cant act lol


    Joe replied

    Richard, absolutely correct! And he was never a fan favorite of mine. His 15 minutes of fame ended a few years ago.

    Have a good one, Richard.

    They really that hard up for actors?


  6. Fran Hendrickes says:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE JESSIE!!!!!! My favorite Big Brother contestant and the reason I watched Tainted Dreams. I’m one of his biggest fans. Can’t wait to see Mr. Pectacular in action on Young & Restless.


  7. Billy Hayman says:

    Yay, Mr. PECS on my favorite soap. I love him. I’m watching!!


  8. Maureen says:

    Not familiar with him-but most certainly would like to be- oh my yes! Yes! Also, I remember Marla Adams from Secret Storm. She was ruthless and powerful and was my role model that got me suspended from grade school when the teacher kept me after school and I told her that perhaps she should focus on her own life and the troubles in her marriage. But, it did pay off. as I had more time to watch my shows. I have thought she seemed a little frail and off as I watch her on Y&R- but she is acting! She is so superbly talented and nuanced and deluxe- I just adore her and I fear her story will not turn out well for Dina- I will not miss any of her performances and really want to shout out to her that she is still and always has been at the top of her game. Love you Marla Adams. I am also very very much loving what id going on between Mariah and Tessa-and I love Tessa’s singing. If the show does indeed go there- and I am so hoping they do- to me it seems totally plausible and I like both actresses very much and looking forward. I have read the comments flying in on social media against this very much so curious and definitely tuned in for more. Also adore Ravi and enjoy him on the show.


    Helen replied

    He is certainly a fine fine man in his prime. Let me turn on the A/C. Yes, I can see you in grade school doing your best Belle- I forget her last name and your teacher’s response-would have loved to see that. Marla is quite good. I honestly thought perhaps she could not handle this at her age- and I am not far behind her and I mean no insult whatsoever-I am a fan of hers-but as you say-she has been crafting this woman who is going to self-destruct and I love her and fear for her and also will try and not miss any as she is excellent and I like the story and the others as you mentioned- show making me very happy.


    Nicki replied

    My heart currently belongs to Graham. But I could very easily be swayed. I love Dina and the actress and the Tessa and Mariah- I am all for it -even if they just become close friends- would love some more scenes where the two converse and have a real friendship. I wish Ashley would be given something romantically- and Ravi is being wasted-I find him very attractive and his character is so great. The show has kind of bored me the past few months but all that seems to be changing lately. I like Juliet, too and people hate on her non-stop but I like her and the whole story is interesting to me.


    Barbara from Atlanta replied

    I like Adams as well. This part of your comment really made me laugh:

    “… that got me suspended from grade school when the teacher kept me after school and I told her that perhaps she should focus on her own life and the troubles in her marriage.”


    Maureen replied

    Thanks Barbara- yes, 4th grade. I suffered for that, but the look on her face-priceless!

    hey one of my favorite TNA WRESTLER ALL TIME ON THE Y AND R SO COOL they should keep him on as ABBY NEWMAN’S NEW LOVE INTERESTED it would be so cool


  11. Mary SF says:

    I am not a fan of this type of thing for two reasons–

    1. If the part was necessary to the scene then by “hiring” a celebrity to do it, they prevent some poor actor a chance to get a day role on a soap and perhaps get their union card in the process– but with a stunt casting, the network most likely doesn’t pay the person and they get all this free PR with it– so I get why the brass does it that way, but it would be nice if they were helping to create jobs, not rob them from people.

    2. If the part is not necessary to the scene and they are writing a “part” in to the show just so the person they want to feature has a role, it is a waste of air time,. The scene never feels organic to the story, it feels like a commercial which basically is what it is. So as a soap fan whatever they are promoting I stay away from


  12. Timmm says:

    Never cared for him on Big Brother or TNA. BUT, I give the guy credit, he keeps pounding away, looking for THAT role! Great body! Dont mind the stunt casting because its only a bit part.


    su0000 replied

    THRILLED & HONORED to announce I’ll be on Daytime TV’s #1 SHOW, The LEGENDARY The Young and the Restless on Friday, August 4th!! DREAM. COME. TRUE. Here are some of the stories about it in Entertainment Weekly, Soap Opera Digest Official Page, Michael Fairman On-Air On-Soaps,

    He is promoting Y&R .. that’s good for Y&R ..


    Timmm replied

    Hey, if Ryan Peavy can do it, Jessie can to!

  13. Robby Ferguson says:

    I can’t wait to see Pecs in action. I would watch Y&R just for him. I hope he becomes a recurring character.


  14. Melinda George says:

    Jessie is my favorite. I loved him on Big Brother and on TNA Wrestling. Way to go Y&R!! Best casting in a long time. Please make him a regular. I would watch just to see him.


  15. Barbara from Atlanta says:

    I have always liked Sally Sussman as a writer and think that her talent for Y&R writing is vastly superior to the abilities of Chuck Pratt or Jean Passante. That being said, I HATE all of this “stunt” casting and cross promotion.

    I am having a very hard time believing that Sussman, alone, is coming with ideas such as having Julie Chen trot through a scene with it have no significance plot wise but merely to let a Y&R character gush about the Talk. I’m really wondering if CBS (meaning executive Angelica whatever her last name is, who is mentioned too frequently on this site) is pushing (meaning, SHOVING) Sussman to do this stuff. If so, I really wish Angelica, CBS, and Sony would just leave Sussman alone and let her write a good show with no interference. I get the corporations want profits but, if they backed off and just let a veteran Y&R writer write, the show might be fantastic — spurring a ratings spike, bringing in the $$$, and making everyone happy.

    These Julie Chen, “Mr. Pecs” and the bleach blonde “Housewife” need to GO!!!!
