Brian_Gaskill25672.jpg

Soap hopper Brian Gaskill (GUIDING LIGHT's Dylan, AS THE WORLD TURNS' B.J., THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Oscar, PORT CHARLES' Rafe and ALL MY CHILDREN's Bobby) has just released a dramatic short film called The Speech. "I'm very excited about getting this film out there," he says.

Gaskill not only stars in the short opposite actress Clea Rivera, but also wrote the script and co-directed it. "It takes place at a wedding reception," the actor explains, "and is about a couple exploring their past together and what that means to their relationship now.

"Soap viewers will be super comfortable with the romantic setting and wedding wardrobe," Gaskill adds with a chuckle before warning: "But it definitely takes a turn away from standard soap fare... it may get a little racy!"

The Speech was funded through Kickstarter with donations from friends and fans, and you can watch it now below. "I couldn't have done it without Ambika Leigh, Garrett Robinson and the whole gang at the film collective and workshop, We Make Movies," Gaskill declares proudly.

Has Y&R Cast Mariah's Mom?

KarinaLogue.jpg

Karina Logue has been cast as Helen Copeland on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and will first air on Thursday, August 14. The actress has appeared in several TV series, including SONS OF ANARCHY (starring her brother, Donal Logue), CSI: NY, BONES, TRUE BLOOD, NCIS and ARMY WIVES, and films such as Argo, Zodiac and When A Stranger Calls.

Details about her character are being kept under wraps, but seeing as how she shares a last name with Mariah, there's obviously some kind of connection there, and the soap has confirmed that Logue will first appear in scenes with Joshua Morrow's Nick. The casting notice describes Helen as a trained nurse who was in and out of jobs, and she was a young mother... but an unwilling parent.

So who do you think Helen is? Sound off in the comments!

Polo Crosses THE BRIDGE

Daniel_Polo27575.jpg

When FX's crime thriller, THE BRIDGE, returns tonight, Wednesday, July 9, at 9:00 p.m. EST, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Daniel Polo will be a part of it. The Emmy nominee who broke hearts as Jamie, the troubled teen that Fenmore bullied, will be kicking the season off when he debuts in a similar role.

"I play Kyle, a nervous kid who gets in a little over his head with someone I meet at a car wash," Polo reveals of his character. "My scenes were with Franka Potente (AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM). She has a really unique character [Eleanor Schrock, a ruthless, shunned Mennonite who is working for the cartel] this season for the show. It was great to work with her."

Being able to add this year's Peabody Award-winning drama to his resume was a thrill for Polo, but that's not all he took away from the experience. "I learned how to ride a bike for the project," he reveals. "Of course, I practiced at home on a regular bike before filming, and then on set they gave me a bike for a 10-year-old. The sizing was definitely off, but I made it work!"

And you'll want to hold on to your seats — this series that focuses on the joint battle against a Mexican drug cartel by an El Paso police detective and her counterpart from across the border is about to get intense. "I spent four hours in the make-up chair to film my final scene, which I believe is in the third episode," Polo teases. "It was a fun project to work on."

You'll Be FINDING Watros On TV Tonight!

CynthiaWatrosYR.jpg Remember when Cynthia Watros had to vacate her role as Kelly on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS because of a new primetime drama, MTV's FINDING CARTER? Well, you can see her in action when the show debuts tonight, Tuesday, July 8, at 10 p.m. EST on MTV! The 12-episode series focuses on Carter, a teenager (played by REIGN's Kathryn Prescott), who discovers that the woman who's been raising her isn't her mother -- Watros' character, Elizabeth, a police detective, is!

"I'm the mother of a teenaged girl and I was hoping to do one of those GILMORE GIRL type [shows]," executive producer Terri Minksy tells Soaps In Depth. "This brilliant, beautiful [script] was available and I took it! I really did respond to it and wanted to write a mother/daughter piece."

The pilot shows Carter and Lori (the mother who kidnapped her) having yogurt with a side of gummy bears and banter for dinner before Carter's world turns upside down. "That scene is almost literally a transcript of my life with my daughter," Minsky reveals. "We do the 'love you, love you more' thing that Carter and Lori do."

Scene-stealer Zac Pullman plays Grant, the younger brother Carter never met since he was conceived after she was kidnapped and became -- in his words -- the "replacement" child. "What does that do to him psychologically," Minksy rhetorically asks. "What will Carter's relationship with him be?"

CARTER scored a casting coup with Watros' TV parents -- they're played by Robert Pine (ex-Stephen, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIUFL) and Meredith Baxter (FAMILY TIES). "Writing for those two is beyond fun," Minksy shares.

Y&R's Serricchio Gets A Witchy Woman!

IgnacioSerricchioGal.jpg

On Lifetime's WITCHES OF EAST END, Ignacio Serricchio (Alex, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) could be just the thing to make Wendy's ninth and final life count... if she lets him! "She meets him in the [season premiere] episode," offers Executive Producer Maggie Friedman. "He's just a regular, salt of the earth guy, but he totally challenges her." Look for the duo to share sparks from the start, but can she get over her fear of mortality enough to enjoy it?

If the hot EMT can't heal what ails her, at a minimum, he could be quite the distraction! "He's so good and so sexy!" Friedman enthuses of the former soap star. "Mädchen Amick (Wendy) was kind enough to come in and read with different actors who were auditioning for the role, and she and Ignacio just had so much chemistry that we had to snatch him up. They're great together!"

Serricchio will appear for a multi-episode arc beginning Sunday, July 6, at 9:00 p.m. EST. There's a wickedly fun season ahead on WITCHES OF EAST END — for more details, catch Friedman's upcoming Primetime Preview interview in the ABC Soaps In Depth issue that goes on sale Monday, August 8.

THE TALK Goes In Depth!

DSC_0293.jpg

Soaps In Depth's own Michael Maloney is a guest on today's episode of THE TALK! "We've been working at putting together a time when we could do a book giveaway with The Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell and THE TALK's studio audience," says Maloney, who authored the tome along with Bell's wife, Lee Phillip Bell. "And the Daytime Emmys seemed like a perfect time to do that. It was very cool to see [host] Julie Chen hold up the book and hear her say that everyone in the studio audience was getting a copy, a perfect example of CBS Daytime synergy."

The women of THE TALK ask Maloney to weigh in on who'll take home the gold this Sunday at the Daytime Emmys. "This is one of the hardest years to predict since there so many great performances," he says. "I'm predicting that there will be a tie in one category."

"Also, Swoosie Kurtz (MIKE & MOLLY; Ellie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is a guest on the show," Maloney adds. "She recounts a funny story about her days as an actress just starting out in New York City and how she auditioned — but failed to land — a role on a soap opera where she would have played a corpse!"

Check out THE TALK today at 2:00 p.m EST on your local CBS station!

Daytime Emmy Awards Preview!

GrahnDiamontEmmyShow.jpg

Fans have lots of questions now that it's been announced that the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are going to be broadcast not on a network or cable outlet, but rather streamed via the Internet at www.daytimeemmys.net beginning at 5:00 p.m. PST on Sunday, June 22. Soaps In Depth spoke to David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards for The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences, about what viewers can expect on the big day!

Soaps In Depth: Will the format be different? Will the show have a time limit?
David Michaels: As I understand it, the plan is for the show to go straight through — there will be no commercial breaks. We're treating it like a live show. It'll run for two hours.

In Depth: There tend to be fewer rules on the Internet about what people can do. Might we see more of a party atmosphere for this show?
Michaels: I'm not sure. It's the same setting room and people, the same party. I don't know if people will feel that they can take advantage of the "no-holds-barred" rules of the Internet or not.

Meet B&B's Ivy!

AshleighBrewerHeadshot.jpg

Former Australian soap star Ashleigh Brewer will debut on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in July as Eric's nice, Ivy, the daughter of the designer's younger brother John, who has been living in Sydney. Soaps In Depth caught up with Brewer following her first few days of taping to find out how she's settling into the role.

"My first day at work was last Friday, and it was a whirlwind day," says the Queensland-born actress, whose previous acting role was a five-year stint on the Australian soap NEIGHBORS. "I was lucky in that a lot of my scenes were group scenes, so there were eight or nine of us on set. I got to meet a big handful of the B&B cast all at once."

Brewer admits her life has been a whirlwind since her casting was announced, and she's even been invited to join B&B's retinue in Monte Carlo at the annual International Television Festival in June. "I feel like I'm not even deserving of it yet, because I've only worked a few days — like I'm cheating the system," she jokes. "I've gotten all of these incredible perks before I even officially started airing. It's as if I'm dreaming all of this a little bit!"

B&B's Jones Has A Secret!

AshleyJonesSexLife.jpg

If you thought THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL was steamy, Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget) promises you haven't seen anything yet! The actress is both the star and executive producer of Lifetime's sizzling new feature, The Secret Sex Life Of A Single Mom.

Based on Canadian author Delaine Moore's memoir by the same name, it's the tale of a 30-something mother's personal journey from painful divorce to self-discovery. Jones stars as Moore, whose best pal (played by GENERAL HOSPITAL's Cynthia Preston, ex-Faith) encourages her to try on-line dating, with some intriguing results. "The script is definitely a tamer version of Delaine's life," Jones giggles. "It is TV-MA, which is television for mature audiences, but I think Lifetime wanted to keep it tasteful..."

Look for the single gal to explore her long-dormant sensuality by taking a walk on the wild side. "It could happen to Bridget! That's the kind of shock and awe that I think Lifetime wants to bring to this project," Jones suggests of the soapy tale. "I think I was hired because they think I could make it seem like this could happen to anyone."

Watch a preview by clicking here and don't miss the film's world premiere on Saturday, May 31, at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime!

EXCLUSIVE: Tom Speaks Out On Y&R Exit

With the shocking news that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS is replacing the recently-returned David Tom with daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins as Billy Abbott, Soaps In Depth reached out to the actor to get his perspective on the unexpected recast.

"It was such a great experience to have been a part of the Y&R family again," Tom tells In Depth. "It was wonderful to see so many old friends and people I know that I used to work with and enjoy so much like Jess Walton (Jill) and Peter Bergman (Jack). I got to do some scenes with Eric Braeden (Victor), finally."

The Emmy winner admits that he didn't see Y&R's decision coming. "I think I was definitely well-liked there," Tom muses. "As far as I knew, nobody knew about this. Not even the cast." Was he given a reason for his termination? "One of the reasons they said they let me go is that I obviously looked too young when they placed me with [the new] Kelly. Well, she was hired after I was. I don't understand why they didn't think about that [when they were casting her]. We don't really have a storyline [anyway]; She's with Jack. I thought I looked fine with Missy [Claire Egan, Chelsea]. I really loved working with her."

The actor is already making plans for the future, including putting together a demo reel out of his best scenes from this last trip to Genoa City. Is he up for another daytime gig? "Hell, yeah. I'd go in a heartbeat to another soap opera," he says. "I love to work.

"The worst thing you can do is mull about it," continues Tom, who adds that what he'll miss most is working alongside his fellow Y&R actors. "The whole cast is wonderful. I felt like they were a part of my family."
