The 2015 Daytime Emmys Are In April!

EmmyTrophies.jpg

Mark your calendars: The ceremony for the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards has been scheduled for Sunday, April 26! The deadline for performer pre-nomination clips to be submitted will be Friday, November 28, and the final nominations will be announced on Tuesday, March 26.

There have been some new categories added, one of which is Guest Performer in a Drama Series, which should include high-profile-but-short-term actors like GENERAL HOSPITAL's Donna Mills (Madeline) and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Ray Wise (Ian).

At this time there have been no details released regarding how the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards will be broadcast, but it will likely be via the Internet as they were this year. (Although hopefully with a better pre-show!)

So who do you think should start putting together Emmy reels for a nomination? Sound off in the comments!

Wood Clarifies Status With B&B

JacquelineMacInnesWood.jpg

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood knows how many THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL fans are itching to see her back on the soap as Steffy, so she took to Facebook to let them know what the deal is. "As much as I love B&B and still wanted to be a part of it," she wrote, "unfortunately we weren't on the same page contractually/scheduling/etc.

"These things happen in this industry," Wood continued, "and I hope all my fans can understand that. I am a huge supporter of [B&B executive producer/headwriter] Brad Bell and the entire cast and crew. Love and kisses to all of my fans. I really do care about you all."

However, as with many soap stars, Wood also admits the book isn't entirely closed. "Hey! If characters an be recast, shot, fall down elevator shafts and come back to life months/years later, then never say never!" she adds. "Love you all and will definitely keep you posted on future projects."

There are reports that B&B is currently casting for a female in Steffy's age range, so a recast could be on the horizon. How would you feel about that? Sound off in the comments!

FOREVER Could Be A Long Time For B&B's Mauzy

MauzyForever.jpg

Broadway's loss is ABC's gain this season — MacKenzie Mauzy's run on FOREVER is continuing on. The theater actress who got her start playing a teenaged and often lovelorn Phoebe on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL is currently having the time of her life as Abigail, the love of medical examiner Henry Morgan's life on ABC's hit drama.

In the story, Henry has the particular conundrum of not being able to die, unlike Abigail — the beautiful British nurse whom the doctor met during WWII — who merely lives on in his memory. "She found baby Abe [who is now older than Henry] in a concentration camp, rescued him and brought him to Henry," Mauzy explains. "They fell in love with the baby and made a little family together."

In "New York Kids," the episode airing Tuesday, October 28, at 10:00 p.m. ET, Mauzy's character will be remembered again, resulting in a deeper understanding of Henry's past. "They will be introducing another character, which is a younger version of Judd Hirsch [who plays adult Abe] but an older version of the baby. So it gives a window into their life together in New York and raising Abe," Mauzy relates. "And it'll show Abigail's dynamic of really pressing Henry to take time off work to take Abe to his game..." How might Henry's memory of juggling his priorities in the past affect the way he handles his current case? Tune in to find out!

In addition to the fun of wearing 1950s costuming, Mauzy is enjoying playing off of charming Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd and developing their characters' relationship. "Abigail is full of energy, light and humor and always tries to counteract Henry's [tendency] to get very pensive and serious," insists the actress who has more episodes ahead. "I think she's a good balance for him." For more from Mauzy, including the scoop on her exciting new role as Rapunzel — opposite Meryl Streep! — in Disney's movie musical, Into The Woods, check out her Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of CBS Soaps In Depth!

Did Eric Make The Right Choice?

EricRidge.jpg

Thursday, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL left fans crying out in frustration with a cliffhanger that left the future of Forrester Creations in question. But Friday, Eric revealed that he had decided Ridge — not Rick — should become the company's new CEO. This set off a heated debate in the Twitterverse as to whether or not Eric made the right call. (Folks also wondered what the heck Maya was doing in the meeting, other than stirring up trouble, but that's another matter entirely!) So here's your chance to sound off: Do you agree with Eric's decision? Why or why not? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!

EXCLUSIVE: Grace Is Coming Back Again!

Jennifer Gareis (Donna, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is once more returning to Genoa City as Grace Turner! The actress, who reprised her role as Nick's naughty ex-lover in August, will pop back up on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS on Thursday, November 13. The buzz is that Gareis' summer appearance on Y&R was so successful that the show extended another invitation to the actress, who currently recurs on sister soap B&B. "I love playing bad girls," Gareis has told In Depth. "It's just so much fun because you never know what they're going to do next! They're always conniving and manipulative." No word on how long Gareis will be on the scene this time, but don't be surprised if she continues to reprise Grace on occasion!

Diamont's Son Takes The Field!

DonDiamontAlexander.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Don Diamont (Bill) will be in Bloomington, Indiana this weekend to cheer on his son, Alexander, when he takes the field as starting quarterback for the University of Indiana Hoosiers in a game against eighth-ranked Michigan State!

The actor says his son's college football debut took everyone completely by surprise. The team had hoped to "redshirt" Alexander (who goes by "Zander") this season [meaning not playing him to ensure that the freshman would be eligible for four subsequent years], but recent injuries to two other Hoosier quarterbacks forced coach Kevin Wilson's hand.

"Here we go, it's batter up, as they say," notes Diamont, jokingly mixing his sports metaphors. "Alexander is now the starting quarterback for the Hoosiers as a true freshman."

Though it's undoubtedly a lot of pressure to step in for the first time against a team that's ranked number one, defensively, in the Big Ten, Diamont says he knows his son will more than rise to the challenge. "I have a belief in my son, and I get emotional even saying it," Diamont tells In Depth with a faltering voice. "I just know he's going to go out there and compete his heart out. I think he'll show flashes of greatness, and he may make some mistakes, but he's going to be fiercely competitive. He will leave it all out there and give it everything he's got."

The game will be televised on Saturday, October 18, at 3:30 p.m. EST on ESPN, and you may even catch a glimpse of the actor in the broadcast if things go well for the rookie quarterback. "I cry every time I say this," says Diamont, "but Alexander did say to me 'Daddy, when I throw a touchdown, make sure you get down by the railing — because I'm going to hand the ball to you.'"

Former B&B Stars Meet On JANE!

JaneTheVirgin.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL viewers will recognize two familiar faces on the new CW dramadey JANE THE VIRGIN, premiering tonight at 9 p.m. EST: Justin Baldoni (ex-Graham) and Gina Rodriguez (ex-Beverly). Their characters, Rafael and Jane, find themselves in quite the sudsy predicament when Rafael's sister, an OB/GYN, inadvertedly artificially inseminates his specimen into the wrong patient -- Jane. Although the procedure only has a 20% chance of working, of course it does, and virgin Jane finds herself pregnant with Rafael's baby. And because medical treatments have left the cancer survivor sterile, this baby is Rafael's only chance at having a biological child!

Funnyman Surprises The Forresters!

FredWillardBB.jpg

This week, fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will finally be able to put a face to the name of Eric Forrester's occasionally-referenced, but never-before-seen brother, John, who also happens to be Ivy's pop. Comic actor Fred Willard drops by starting Thursday, October 2 for a three-episode arc that will conclude on Monday, October 6.

Though the actor is best known for his hilarious stints in films like Best In Show, Anchorman, and a recurring role on MODERN FAMILY, Willard says he's always been intrigued by the soap world, noting that he was once hooked on the seventies-era soap HOW TO SURVIVE A MARRIAGE. "That was a long time ago," he chuckles. "I started watching B&B when I found out I was going to be on, and I got very interested in the storyline."

Willard explains that John currently calls Australia home, but says his alter ego will find himself quite enamored with his brother's glamorous existence. "When he see where Eric works and the models he works with, I imagine he's quite envious," says Willard.

Look for John to also take a shine to Eric's in-law, Pam (which won't sit well with her current beau, Charlie!) "He can't help it," laughs Willard. "His wife's in Australia! But he's kind of a harmless guy."

BIG BROTHER Housemates Move The Party To B&B!

Less than 48 hours after the dramatic finale of BIG BROTHER 16, eight of the reality show's former houseguests reconvened on the set of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL last Friday — along with five other BIG BROTHER alums — to tape a Halloween-themed episode that will air on Friday, October 31.

Though there was plenty of drama and backstabbing inside the BIG BROTHER house this summer, the vibe at the B&B set was all about letting bygones be bygones when Soaps In Depth caught up with Donny, Amber, Cody, Zach, Hayden, Nicole, Caleb and Devin.

Quinn's Crazy... But She Could Be Right!

HopeQuinn.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Quinn is not the person we would look to for advice, generally speaking. However, she has made some pretty great points regarding Hope's dash down the aisle (or off the bow of a ship, as the case may be) with Wyatt. "You did what you wanted to," Quinn told Hope. "You accepted my son's proposal because you wanted to." As for the whole "Liam didn't show up when he said he'd be there" issue? Quinn declared, "You needed an excuse to marry the brother of your fiancée," adding that Liam's delay provided it. Do you think Quinn was right? If Liam had shown up, would Hope have found another reason to put off their marriage? Would she still have wound up with Wyatt? Or is Quinn just covering her own butt? Should the fact that Hope now knows the truth push her to leave Wyatt and reunite with Liam? Let's hear what you think!

BALLANDO CON B&B's Brooke!

katherinekellylang.jpg

DANCING WITH THE STARS recently announced the cast for its new season, and once again there are some ABC Daytime alums in its ranks. But there's a star from THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL who will also be hoofing for the big prize... on the other side of the world!

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) revealed on Facebook that she will be competing on the Italian version of the show, BALLANDO CON LE STELLE. "My sweetie and I are moving to Italy for the next couple of months," she posted, adding, "The first live dance will be October 4th, please tune in and vote!"

B&B is a massive hit overseas, and her co-star Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge) competed on this same reality show himself back in 2010. Seeing as he came second with his partner, Sara Di Vaira, Lang should probably hit him up for some tips and tricks!

Actors performing on DWTS at the same time they're appearing on a daytime soap can be a rough schedule, but since Lang will be in Italy for this competition, it's impossible. "Brooke will be heading to the Milan office of Forrester International," the actress posted to Facebook to explain her alter ego's upcoming on-screen absence. "For some much needed private time and reflection.

"Once BALLANDO CON LE STELLE is over, I will be back to work at B&B," she continues. "Unless we can get [executive producer/headwriter] Brad [Bell] to come to Italy to do a remote!"

BB Evictee To Guest On B&B!

DonnyThompson.jpg

On the Thursday, August 28, live episode of CBS' BIG BROTHER, fan favorite Donny Thompson was evicted from the house. But as a consolation prize, host Julie Chen informed the former groundskeeper that THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL had contacted the reality show because they want Donny to guest star on the soap!

Right now, Donny is still sequestered in the BIG BROTHER jury house with the other evicted houseguests in preparation for selecting a winner in the Wednesday, September 24, finale. So there's no way of knowing exactly when he'll be appearing or who he might be playing. With his DUCK DYNASTY-style beard, Donny isn't the most obvious fit for the glamorous sudser... so who do you think he might play?

B&B's Wagner Gets Deadly!

Heartbreakers.jpg

It's a MELROSE PLACE reunion! Well, not really, but it's as close as we're probably gonna get. Jack Wagner (ex-Nick, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL; ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL) stars alongside MELROSE co-stars Jamie Luner (Liza, ALL MY CHILDREN) and Rob Estes in the premiere episode of Investigation Discovery's (ID) new re-enactment series, HEARTBREAKERS. In it, he'll play an Independence, MO, preacher who famously got caught up in a deadly affair.

"I was able to step out of what people might know me as from my [previous] television roles and really play this deeply self-consumed, narcissistic, thinks-he's-God-type minister who basically controls his parish," offers Wagner of his character, David Love. "He winds up having an affair and killing the woman's husband."

B&B's Mosley Waxes Poetic!

KarlaMosley.jpg

Inspired by a magazine article about a man who wrote a haiku a day, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Karla Mosley (Maya) set a similar goal for herself, daily writing brief "micropoems" that range from the silly to the sublime. The actress compiled a collection of her favorites into the newly-released self-published book called Short Poems For A Long And Happy Life, which is currently available in paperback at Amazon.com.

"The only reason it happened is because of the fans that I stay in touch with on social media," Mosley explains. "I was posting haikus, and fans started asking me, 'When are you putting a book together?' I finally said, 'Why not?'"

In addition to adding "published author" to her repertoire, Mosley has kept busy during B&B's summer hiatus on the set of HART OF DIXIE, on which she recurs as the comically stereotypical Southern belle, Elodie. In July, Mosley shared with Twitter fans a setside photo of herself sporting a bright pink bow on her head for the role. "All pink. All day," she quipped. "Must be back in Dixie."

Gaskill Delivers Quite A Speech!

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.

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!
