48 January 5th, 2015 Tristan Rogers On What’s Ahead On Y&R In 2015: “Seems More Compelling Than Some Of The “Fare” We’ve Had Of Late. Think You’ll Like It.”

Soap opera veteran and current star of The Young and the Restless, Tristan Rogers did a New Years check in with his fans via Twitter over the last 24 hours, where he first let everyone know he is back from his trip visiting his homeland of Australia, and will be back at work at CBS soundstages in the role of Colin Atkinson starting tomorrow!

Of note was Tristan’s remarks and sentiments about Colin’s storylines where he offered up:  “Ok guys and gals.  I”m back from oz and raring to get back to work on Jan 6. Was great to be home with my mum. Whats in store? Cant say.  So what can I say? Not a whole lot. However, it seems more compelling than some of the “fare” we’ve had of late. Think you’ll like it.”

Rogers also confirms he is with Y&R for another year with this tweet:  “I am at Y&R for another year. Doesn’t mean I won’t do other stuff. But my mind is there and I want to make it prominent in daytime.”

So, are you hoping that Colin and Jill (Jess Walton) have better story in 2015?  Do you think their story in 2014 was not-so-good … (music box mystery) … or did you like it?  What do you hope happens next as Colin has done some blackmailing of Devon (Bryton James) and got himself into some shady dealings in Genoa City?  Happy to hear Tristan is at Y&R for another go-round? Comment below!

    I’m so sad and feel like crying…I missed him as iconic Robert Scorpio…I wish GH had signed him when they first got him back. It really hurt to see him on another soap when he so belongs on GH and they could used him, every story on GH Robert could slide right into because he was part of it in the past, even if Fluke turn out to be Bill Eckert Robert was part of that story too…Oh, how I wish that GH would’ve signed their own super star first before signing other actors from other soaps. Port Charles needs Robert Scorpio!!

    I miss Scorpio too, and Anna could use a love interest more worthy of her than Duke of Bloomingdale’s.
    However, the way they are propping up DR O at Anna’s expense and the way they had this older woman get the best of our super spy, I don’t feel GH would treat Tristan with the respect he deserves.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Harry…I luv ya but I’m on this crusade about age. Dr. O is probably Scorpio’s age or younger. Can we just say…that they had a woman get the best of our super spy and leave age out if it? And even that…a woman overpowering a man is possible if she’s trained…do u watch REVENGE? Amanda Clark kicks butt! With that said…I was beyond pissed and incredulous when Dr. O clobbered him. Back in the day, from what I recall…he was hard to take down. So that was rather comical, disappointing and I agree with u and the others. I miss Scorpio…and when/if he ever comes back I hope they write him as the super spy, force to be reckoned with he always was…

    PLEASE let Jill and Cain take the company away from Victor! Im sick of this mad man always getting away with everything and I turn the set off when he treats Sharon so awful!!! I hope Adam comes to his senses and remembers the love he had for Sharon. Nick will never grow up sadly. :(

    Shay replied

    Amen, Mysty! We surely could have had our dear Scorpio on contract were it not for that scenery-chewing, space-wasting Nina nuisance!!! By the way, I just read a blind scoop about a GH “diva” (their word, not mine….) who wants her character to be “put out of her misery” so she can leave the show. Would seem to me that description could fit very few of the current cast members….Ava? (MW appears to love her role and place on GH….) Madeline? (DM’s barely on….they only need to send her away, not die, to accomplish a permanent absence ….) Carly? (Nah….) To my mind, MS best fits that description given her crazy character’s present state, and let’s face it, her much-ballyhooed, bombastic b*+@# didn’t exactly go down a treat with a large number of viewers….I don’t believe Stafford was at all pleased with the reaction the Cray Clay received. (Not to mention the thumbs-up that GT is getting for her vastly-improved “NuPhyllis!”) Incidentally, the blind also stated that the show runners were debating killing-off vs. recasting the character. Hmmm….

    Rebecca, I am totally on your side as far as the age kick goes (especially when it comes to women vs men) and I know you’re right.
    It’s just sometimes I like to exaggerate (some would say I fabricate) to make either a point or a joke. I used to say Dr O looked she could make a cameo appearance as a villain on The Golden Girls. I also used to call her Betty White. Okay, I am going to rewrite my statements—- I was appalled that a mere mortal woman with no karate training or Vulcan grip training was able to get the best of Robert Scorpio, superspy of the 80′s. Is that a bit better (albeit less funny?).
    But I know full well she is a lot younger than Tristan and probably about Finola Hughes’ age. So I do apologize to both you and Young Katherine.
    Shay, I love the new Phyllis and I never could tolerate this character before. See how this character just lights up when shades of nuances are allowed to flicker through rather than that sneering, scene chewing woman who always acts the same no matter what the scene?

    I dont know why Frank didnt sign Tristan long term. Maybe because if Robert were around he would have sniffed out Fluke. Same goes with Laura.

    I kept thinking the music box was going to surprise us with a shocker but it became abundantly clear that the music box needed to keep company with a Charlie in the Box on the island of unwanted toys and story lines.

    Both Tristan and Jill were totally wasted last year by the writers caught up in that stupid, never ending music box story with Tristan being doubly wasted owing money to some unknown loan shark all the time. Thankfully that trash is all over with and it was revealed last week that Jill, Colin, and Cane were going to try and get Chancellor Industries back from Victor. It’s about damn time for that story. I’m guessing we can thank new writer Mr. Pratt for it. Y&R has been kicking butt lately.

    I wish colin would leave jill needs another job because she’s not good at this one.victor is out of his character way they made him this way l don’t no he isn’t helping nick any.why did they do this to victor, they written him in as the town villain, and it shouldn’t be that way.it’s like victor turn on his family and went to the enemy. Side.

    I dislike Colin….like him a bit better now than I did before, during his stupid, criminal escapades. Ergo, the senseless music box storyline. Has he turned a new leaf? Has his love for Jill changed him? I don’t know.
    However, I dislike Victor even more….always have. The man makes my skin crawl much as Sonny does. They both rub me the wrong way. Just my personal feeling and opinion.
    So, if Colin’s intention to help Jill and Cain overtake CI is not so pure, sobeit. I would rather have Colin, the carpet bagger, than Victor, the dragon, at the helm. Slay the dragon…down with its head. I wish I were St. George(tte).

    What a great picture of the debonair and handsome Tristan Rogers.
    I like that they are having Colin deviate from being a low rent, sleazy con artist and they are going to give him a loftier story worthy of Tristan’s talents.
    They have a gem in this actor and so far he’s been a wasted natural resource.

    I really hope Colin and Jill have more compelling story this year than in 2014. That music box mystery was lengthy, dull and a waste of Tristan Rogers and Jess Walton’s talents. Also, Jess needs to be put on contract and utilized WAY more! She’s a phenomenal actress and has the closest connection to the show’s matriarch, Katherine, of all the current characters on the show. And that’s what I think the show needs to capitalize on this year: the Chancellor dynasty. Bring back Brock and Tucker, Katherine’s sons, and put them in story with Jill and Colin. Have them take back Chancellor Industries from Victor and showcase the family more.

    Well, that’s my wish. But at the very least, Colin and Jill need better story this year.

    Note to GH. If you want to keep an actor around that promises good ratings then offer them a contract

    Recalling at the time..
    Tristan did not want to make a commitment at the time, he had much going on, and was ”looking” where to drop anchor.. ;)

    Lawrence replied

    Um no. What happened was he was on a recurring basis with GH. He called GH and said what’s up. No contract was offered. So his agent saw that y and r offered him a contract and he told Tristan. Gh knew nothing of this and several rewrites were demanded. Again like I said if GH wants to keep an actor that promises good ratings then offer the actor a contract.

    I LOVE Tristen…I have since the 80′s,,,however, I have to say that I was secretly hoping they would release him from Y&R so he could go back to GH as Robert Scorpio! I love that character…but I also like Colin with Jill…Ok maybe he can do both! :)

    Tristan Rogers is and always will be the very dynamic Robert Scorpio.
    Scorpio fit him like a fine glove.. they (tristin and scorpio) were made for eachother..

    Jill and Colin are muddy brown.. Anna and Scorpio are hot red!!

    actors work for money and Y&R could give Tristan the big dollars, he went where the money was and I bet he’d love to be back in the ”action” of GH..

    RC tweeed/said this at the time–
    “Guys, I had no idea @tristanrogers was leaving I found out last night. I now have 1 day to write him out of a big February Sweeps storyline. Meanwhile, you will see a lot of Robert between now and February! And please respect [Rogers] and his decision.”

    Dear Ron and Frank:

    You had no idea he was leaving and yet you knew he wasn’t offered a contract? I would like to do a variation of that old phone prank which involved a refrigerator.
    (ring!)
    Frank V–Hello?
    Me- Hello Frank. Is Tristan Rogers on the set today?
    Frank–Why yes he is, why do you——
    Me- Well you better go and get him because he’s running out the door!

    lol
    that music box mystery was the worst ”year long”’ (still no end in sight story ever on any soap.. it was so bad I really noticed it .. a total embarrassment for Y&R.

    I do not like Jill, she is a big Irk but I do like Tristin but he is wasted with Y&R..

    too bad he left GH he’d be in the midst of some good stuff for him now..

    I hope Pratt can revive Y&R because this past year it sucked, big time..

    If I were the head honcho of Y&R I would dump;
    Sharon- Jill- Lauren- Dylan- Devon- Billy and Victoria and start over ..
    I would have Sharon eaten by cannibals and the others offed in a big explosion at Cassies grave (i would not live long enough to see them all die from a Y&R disease (Y&R has a variety of those dying from diseases, diseases …….

    Sounds like you’d make Y&R more like GH

    Jamesj75 replied

    Touche!

    Jimmy replied

    Sure, let’s just destroy Y&R even more than it was under MAB and so far with JFP! Let’s get rid of great actors and veteran characters like Sharon Case, Jess Walton and Amelia Heinle, in favour of what exactly? More newbies? Turning Y&R into GH 2.0 with similar storylines (explosions, diseases, etc) and eliminating half the cast because they’ve been annoying this year, isn’t a solution.

    The only one I agree with you on, is Billy. Burgess Jenkins is completely wrong for the role. He needs to go, and they need to find a more suitable actor for the role.

    Both Dylan and Devon, as dull and boring as they may be right now, can be made interesting, and are both good actors – they just need the good material.

    Jill and Lauren are sisters, and I adore Jess and Tracey. Lauren and Michael’s story looks promising, and hopefully the writers can develop a story worthy of Jess’s talents, unlike that music box disaster of a storyline.

    As for Victoria, I think she and Stitch are good together, and I absolutely loved her and Billy Miller’s Billy; I think the writers can get her back to that, maybe with Stitch, or maybe someone else.

    As for Sharon, the character was destroyed so wholly by MAB, and that trend is continuing with the current writers, but hopefully they are able to stabilize her again in 2015.

    Getting rod of characters just because they’ve had off years isn’t the solution; it’s creating good stories worthy of the actor’s talents, which Y&R can definitely do.

    LOL… I have to agree about some of these tired characters such as Lauren , Dylan ( OMG he is so so boring…I love Avery but not with him) the nuBilly does nothing for me…and yes Sharon;s fate may indeed be ending soon as I think she may be on her last leg.

    Cane is just eh…I like him better without that bitchy self righteous wife Lilly always controlling him…she can also go with the Cannibals (LOL)

    The show is a mess, the nuAdam has not been written very well….so far.

    the character of Collin rejoined Y&R : Feb. 5, 2014

    nearly a year later , sans 1 more month ?

    with writing, hit and miss, with character front and back burner

    I’m so glad time goes as fast as it does

    to wait for good writing and production is damning

    I was hoping Y&R would write out the character so Tristan can return home to GH where he belongs. Robert would sort out the Fluke storyline in about a week, lol. He’s sorely missed in Port Charles.

    It’s very telling when you go on Tristan’s Facebook page, and the vast majority of the comments are people asking when he’s coming back to GH. They can call him Colin or any other name, but he’s always gonna be Robert Scorpio, one of the all-time iconic soap characters. I look forward to the day when he returns.

    Hey, if Y&R can share Eileen Davidson with “Days,” and GH can share Wally Kurth with “Days,” why can’t there be room for both Colin AND Robert Scorpio on daytime’s rich canvas? Hmmmm?

    Wally hasn’t been on Days for a while. Don’t know if that’s because he’s so busy on GH, but I’m tired of hearing Justin is out of town on business.

    Reply

    Jimmy replied

    Eileen works for soaps distributed by the same company – Sony – so they were able to work out a deal that way. Wally is not on contract on either soap he is on, giving him the freedom to extend beyond the boundaries that contracts set, and work on other projects (including other soaps). Tristan is under contract at Y&R, and since GH is Y&R’s biggest competition, I doubt they would be willing to share, and I doubt it is contractually possible for an actor to work on rival networks simultaneously.

    Your comment comes off as if Y&R is being nice to DAYS, which it’s not. Eileen requested that her contract stipulate that she can appear on DAYS…Her decision, not Y&R’s, made possible through Sony who distributes both shows.

    If Y&R was playing nice, they wouldn’t have come after Eileen when they realized how successfull she was as Kristen on DAYS, the role that made her an Emmy winner!

    I don’t think Wally Kurth is under contract with DAYS or GH, so he’s free to go where he wants to go.

    Finally, Y&R is not going to “share” a star with another soap unless that star is smart like Eileen Davidson. The star would have to want to anyway. Y&R went after TR to hurt General Hospital and help Y&R at the same time.

    Tristan and Jess just didnt forget how to act, they just got stuck with the worse story of 2014! Secondly, they dont have any chemistry. I would bring the original Tucker back. Him and Jill had chemistry. [You need Kathrine's family around.] Third, I would reboot Tristan. He is daytime royalty. I would color his hair and bring him back as a tycoon with his wife, Emma Samms! He is much better as a James Bond spy like character with swagger. Emma and him were great on GH. Have them be old friends of the Newmans. Make him a part of the new development plan. If not, ride out this contract and then go back to GH where there are tons of stories for him.

    Disappointed in this news. I much prefer him on GH and was hoping for his return to that show. I usually fast forward all his scenes on Y&R especially those with Jill. They haven’t got the appeal for me that Robert and Anna had on GH.

  16. Jamesj75 says:

    Didn’t they nearly write off Y&R’s Jill a couple of years ago? And when she came back, they paired her with Colin for occasional comic relief. To me, Colin is a caricature, not well written, and not engaging. Tristan would be far better off at GH, reprising a well-written, beloved character.

    What I believe-
    Triston would be with GH if Y&R had not lost MM/Adam and a couple of others..
    Michels pay alone was a huge incentive for Triston to sign a contract, there was a lot more money offered him, most likely..
    Y&R losing MM freed up a huge amount of money..
    (same with losing Michelle- freed up a huge amount of money (her pay.. as with Billy his leaving freed up a huge amount of money, his pay..
    The 3 replacements are not making anything close as to the salary of the 3, now gone..
    money kept Triston at Y&R ..

    and it’s a crying damned shame

    Collin was dynamic electric with Genevieve…. Genie Francis

    this is who, Jack should be with : his own age dynamic and tour de force… this pairing would have gone head to toe against Victor and Nikki… who are so dull any ways… merely spit on their shoe… undermined

    Yes! More of Colin and Jill, please! I think they are a dynamic couple on screen and they seem to have such a rapport with one another. Can’t wait for the intrigue coming up with them and Victor! PS: Jess Walton is SOOOOO fabulous as Jill!!! Love every time she’s on screen!! Hilarious!!
