Watch B&B Star Pierson Fodé's New Film Today!


As of today, Naomi And Ely's No Kiss List -- the film that sparked real-life romance for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Pierson Fodé (Thomas) and actress/singer Victoria Justice -- is exclusively available on iTunes. "It's a fun coming-of-age story set in New York," Fode tells Soaps In Depth of the flick, which is based on the young adult novel by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.

The fact that his character, Ely, is gay lends a unique twist to this romantic comedy. "It's about a girl who loves a guy who loves a guy -- it's basically about unrequited love," Fodé explains. "It's almost two years ago this month that we were getting ready to start to film it. It feels good to have it come out. Words can't describe how much fun we had shooting that movie."

katherinekellylang.jpg From palaces and pristine beaches to five-star hotels and fashionable European capitols, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) has been lucky enough to visit some of the most gorgeous and glamorous spots on earth as part of her job.

All About ATWT Legend's ANACOSTIA Role!


When the Web series ANACOSTIA returns this fall, two-time Emmy winner Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda, AS THE WORLD TURNS) will join the cast in the custom-made role of Eva Montgomery. In making her Web series debut, Hubbard will be reunited with her ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne (Lily), who plays ANACOSTIA's Alexis. (This year, Byrne won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Performer In A New Approaches Drama Series for her role.)

Series creator, writer and star Anthony Anderson tells Soaps In Depth that daytime legend Hubbard was "absolutely" someone he's had on his wish list for the show. "Martha and I had spoken about this idea back in 2011 when she came on board," Anderson explains. "It was just a matter of the right role and opportunity and now we have it. It's going to be amazing. This character is a handful!"

Along with Anderson, Byrne wrote the story arc for Hubbard's character -- and will make her directorial debut in the scenes featuring Eva and Alexis. "We are keeping some of it a secret, but I will say this much: Eva is a woman determined to get what she wants by any means necessary," teases Anderson. "There is a point in the story where her actions are even called into question by those around her. It's going to be a joy seeing her in this role, and I think the fans will see her in a whole new light."

Y&R Actor Will Crack You Up!


If you saw Ignacio Serricchio's (ex-Alex, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; ex-Diego, GENERAL HOSPITAL) side-splitting turn as Edmundo, the faux gay wedding planner on The Wedding Ringer, then you got a hint about just how funny the actor can be.

Currently, he's in Atlanta preparing to give fans even more evidence of his comedic chops with his role on the new BET series, ZOE EVER AFTER. In the sitcom, the ex-wife (actress/singer Brandy Norwood) of a famous boxer (Dorian Missick, SOUTHLAND) juggles motherhood, dating, and her start-up cosmetics business. "I play Miguel," Serricchio reveals. "He's a contractor that Zoe's ex hires — they own a lot of property, so he's the go-to guy to fix everything."

Might having the handsome hunk underfoot be an unwelcome distraction for the struggling woman, or just the distraction she needs? Viewers will have to wait until the January premiere of the romantic comedy to find out. For more details, check out Serricchio's Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth.

Ramirez Protects And Serves


On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Marisa Ramirez did her best as cosmetic executive Carmen Mesta to try to straighten out the troubles at Newman Enterprises' Beauty Of Nature. Now she's working to eliminate a big problem in the city where her current show, CBS' BLUE BLOODS, is produced.

"Trying to provide affordable and safe housing in New York City is not easy," she says. "So there are about 25 teams of 10 women each raising $250,000 to $500,00 to build homes for local single mothers [via a Women Build project for Habitat for Humanity]." Amongst those teams is a seven-member one from BLUE BLOODS, The Bricks & Sticks Chicks, which the actress is a part of.

"We have a make-up artist, someone from the wardrobe department, our script supervisor, and also myself and fellow castmembers Amy Carlson (Josie, ANOTHER WORLD), Vanessa Ray (Teri, AS THE WORLD TURNS) and Abigail Hawk," Ramirez says proudly. "I've gotta get some steel-toed shoes! We have no idea what we'll actually be doing, but we are excited and looking forward to it." With just weeks left until the Saturday, September 26, build day, the actress is fundraising for the BLUE BLOODS team. Click here to pledge your support.

For more from Ramirez, whose TV series returns Friday, September 25, at 10:00 p.m. EST, check out her Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth.

Is "Good Rick" Here To Stay?


Love will do funny things to people. In the case of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Rick, it's turned the onetime tyrant into a regular teddy bear! Six months ago, no one could have anticipated the change that would come over this headstrong businessman as a result of his love for Maya, least of all, his portrayer, Jacob Young! Why was Rick so readily able to accept Maya's secret past when he gave his last wife, Caroline, her walking papers for hiding her secret attraction to Ridge? In Young's mind, there's a clear distinction:

"When someone cheats on Rick, his whole house of cards comes tumbling down around him," explains the actor. "Maya wasn't sleeping with somebody else or fantasizing about somebody else [the way Caroline was]. It was an entirely different scenario, in which she was holding something back that was very personal."

Has falling for Maya taught Rick any lessons about the right way to treat another human being, or will his history of power-tripping at other people's expenses eventually resurface? Young weighs in on that topic in the latest issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!
