Dark Days For Foster?

BrenFoster.jpg

On DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Quinn Hudson was the guy hired by Kate to stir up trouble for Chloe and who later blackmailed EJ. Might his portrayer, Bren Foster, be someone as equally challenging to contend with when he debuts in a new recurring guest role on THE LAST SHIP, the addictive drama from executive producer Michael Bay?

"Going on set and bringing Senior Chief Wolf Taylor [the Australian naval officer that joins the crew in Norfolk, VA] to life is one of the best experiences in my career so far," enthuses Foster, who was himself a big fan of the series' first season. "I'm honored to be surrounded by such an amazing group of talented actors, writers, producers, directors and great crew. From the moment I stepped on set everyone has been extremely welcoming."

The drama, which deals with a group of sailors who avoided the pandemic that wiped out 80 percent of the world's population by being out to sea, is shot aboard some of the U.S. Navy's real-life destroyers. "Being on THE LAST SHIP has really made me appreciate all the men and women in our military. They play a huge part in allowing us to live the way we live," Foster confesses. "[In the show], we portray life-and-death situations, but as you find yourself in the midst of the scene, you realize that there are people doing this for real every day and for that, they have my deepest gratitude."

THE LAST SHIP, which stars Eric Dane and features ALL MY CHILDREN's Charles Parnell (Derek) as a series regular, returns to TNT for its much-anticipated second season next summer.

B&B Scribe Promises Heartfelt Holiday Episode!

BBHolidayEp.jpg

Stephanie Forrester's legacy continues this holiday season on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL when the show returns to her beloved Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row in downtown L.A. for a very special Christmas Eve episode! "It could be one of our best Christmas episodes ever," executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell proudly proclaims of the show, which will air on Wednesday, December 24. "I believe the Forresters have stated, since the show's first Christmas, that they go to the mission and spend the morning there before having their feast at the Forrester estate. So this year, we're actually going to do a 'reality-style' episode there."

When B&B originally filmed on location at the charity, Susan Flannery (ex-Stephanie) served as an interviewer, of sorts, interacting with real people who have come to rely on the mission's services. This year, John McCook (Eric) will fill that role. "We just want to remind the world that there are people who are less fortunate who need help during these times of celebration," says Bell. "We really want to encourage people to think beyond the walls of their home and really reach out and help their fellow brothers and sisters whenever they have a chance."

VanessaMarano.jpg

On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, an impulsive Eden struggled to be the better version of herself that her big brother, Michael, expected. Now, Eden's portrayer, Vanessa Marano, plays another confused teen — this one, Bay, a rich girl who found out that she'd been swapped with Daphne (played by Katie Leclerc), an infant who'd grown up to become the deaf daughter of a working-class single mom — on ABC Family's SWITCHED AT BIRTH. But in "Yuletide Fortune Teller," the pre-season-four episode airing Monday, December 8, at 9:00 p.m. EST, things are about to get even crazier!

Inside A Y&R Villain's MANSIONS!

MichaelCorbett.jpg

Even if his last "residence" wasn't a trash compactor on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, it's safe to say that Michael Corbett (ex-David) has much better digs these days! The actor-turned-executive producer has a series called MANSION HUNTERS, which features an inside look at some of the most glamorous and recognizable digs in Hollywood! You can binge on a marathon run of 8 half-hour episodes of the reality series starting tonight, December 5 at 9:00 p.m. EST on Reelz.

Corbett's been interested in real estate since his days on Y&R, where he played Nina's devious husband back in the early '90s. How'd he get the idea for this show? "I thought it'd be really fascinating to see behind the scenes of these mega-mansions that rent out for $100,000 a day [for movie and TV productions]. I put together a show that's about the people who put these deals together."

Some of the stars that have been to the homes profiled in MANSION HUNTERS include movie stars Angelina Jolie, Chris Hemsworth, and Megan Fox. Programs and films that have shot at these places include MAJOR CRIMES, The Aviator, and L.A. Confidential. "There's nothing out there like this show that combines all the elements of mansions, money, movies, Hollywood and celebrities," Corbett says.

Stakes run high in closing the agreements between mansion owners and productions so watch for lots of interpersonal dynamics between the folks that work in the firm that negotiates the deals. Featured on the show is Paul Kim, head of Image Locations, and his team of associates which includes Camila More (ex-Gillian, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Anna, GENERAL HOSPITAL) and her twin sister Carey More (ex-Grace, DAYS)!

While Corbett's hand is all over MANSION HUNTERS, he won't be appearing on camera in it. "It's a departure for me," he says. Since being presumed dead after accidentally activating a trash compactor in which he was hiding on Y&R, Corbett's continued to act, but he's also branched out into hosting for shows like EXTRA and MANSIONS & MILLIONAIRES.

Part of the fun of watching MANSION HUNTERS is spotting which homes and estates were used in the making of your favorite shows. Corbett previews: "One episode talks about where Lady Gaga fell off a balcony in one of her music videos!"
