Park Gets Hot!

MichaelPark.jpg

AS THE WORLD TURNS' Michael Park (Jack) is back on Broadway following his stint in the hit musical How To Succeed In Business... Without Really Trying. This time around, he's appearing in the latest revival of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof starring Scarlett Johansson!

Park will be playing the role of Gooper, although he admits that director Rob Ashford cast against type by offering him the role. "He's supposed to be a portly man who is not very well-liked by his father and mother," the actor explains. "He's got to be diametrically opposed to Brick, who is the superstar of the family. I'm not your normal type for Gooper. [Rob] is thinking outside the box a little bit."

While Gooper and wife Mae are often considered the comic relief of the story, Park adds that they have to be a serious threat. "The real threat should be there that Gooper is going to be taking over the business," he says. "He's going to be taking over the family plantation. It's going to be interesting. I'm not taking this lightly at all. What an opportunity."

Previews for Cat On A Hot Tin Roof begin on Tuesday, December 18, and the show's opening night is scheduled for Thursday, January 17. It will only run for 15 weeks, so if you're hoping to get tickets, don't wait too long to click here!

And for more from Park about his post-ATWT career and what's next after this play, don't miss his interview in the new CBS Soaps In Depth, on sale 12/17!

An Early New Year For GL's Sloan

Tina_Sloan09531.jpg

It was a long time coming, but Happy New Year, the poignant film that Tina Sloan (Lillian, GUIDING LIGHT) made in 2010, has finally made it to the big screen. "It's about an injured Iraqi war vet (Michael Cuomo) who comes back and goes to a VA hospital," Sloan reveals. "In the movie, he's my son, and of course, my own son had been in Iraq, so all the fears I'd had for him I was able to use in this."

In the award-winning picture, the sergeant seeks healing and camaraderie with the other injured veterans, but the ghosts of war arise, leading him and his friends down a self-destructive path. Happy New Year is showing through Thursday, December 13, at the Quad Cinemas (34 West 13th Street) In New York City. For tickets visit movietickets.com. And if you can't make it to one of those screenings, we'll be sure to let you know when we hear of more showings in additional cities or an eventual DVD release so you can see it yourself!

It looks like GUIDING LIGHT's Christina and Remy are moving to Los Angeles to join THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! Well, not exactly. But coincidentally both Karla Mosley and Lawrence Saint-Victor have been cast on B&B at the same time!

The soap has confirmed that Mosley will first appear on Thursday, January 17, as a woman from Dayzee's past. And Saint-Victor begins his run on Tuesday, January 29, as Marcus' adoptive brother. So it would seem likely that Dayzee and Marcus' young marriage is going to hit a few hiccups!

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS got an early holiday gift — CBS has just announced that the show has been daytime television's top-rated drama for 24 years! According to CBS, Y&R began its winning streak the week of December 26, 1988.
