On Wednesday, the beautiful and talented Chrishell Stause broke the news on Twitter that Days of our Lives star Casey Moss (JJ) was joining her on the popular teen soap Youthful Daze.

Is Moss replacing Jonathan Lipnicki as Tyler Dean? Will there be other surprise casting moves? What's happening with the popular David A. Gregory? (Richie YD) I went right to series creator and star Bryan James (Drew) for the answer to my questions!

"Casey Moss is an exciting new addition to my show but he is only the first in a new wave for Youthful Daze,"said James. "I intentionally didn't announce this because I want to surprise people with who we have coming on and for them to be hit with it out of nowhere. All the recasts that are coming, and there are many, are of roles that I feel have more life in them to be explored. Almost anyone is recast-worthy on this show because I refuse to lose any of these characters. I love them too much. With that said, David Gregory is working in New York and is unavailable to film. I refuse to recast Richie because he left such a mark on that part and his exit is going to be left open for a return one day."

Continued James,"With Jonathan, he is a nice person, but he is not the vision I have for Tyler at all, and that is the truth with a few of the other roles as well. We can reach further and dig deeper. What's exciting about working with Casey Moss, is when we met we both immediately said to each other "Do I know you?" We both felt like we knew one another already somehow. I want to do work with other actors that help me take this show to another level."

Sounds Exciting!

Youthful Daze is available at Watch a brand new episode every Sunday night.

UPDATE #1: Jonathan Lipnicki has responded to this interview and he says that it was his decision to leave Youthful Daze.

According to Lipnicki, " I wish Bryan James and the cast of YD nothing but the best in the future. I think Casey Moss will do a terrific job. However I was not replaced. I am doing a movie in New York and then starting another movie a day after I wrap this one."

UPDATE #2: Bryan James has responded to Johnathan's quote.

Youthful Daze stands by its story.  It was our choice to replace Jonathan Lipnicki in the role of Tyler Dean."

The Complete Story of 'The Doctors' (1963-1973)

Daytime TV covered the world of soap operas for decades before finally folding in the 1990s. In the mid-70s, the magazine did an excellent series titled "The Complete Story of..." recounting the history of a soap opera from its inception. Below is the historical feature on the first 10 years of NBC's The Doctors (1963-1973), which is currently being aired on Retro TV. Some of the interesting tidbits include: * The Doctors did not start as a serial; it began as a "half-hour anthology series of medical dramas, set in the large metropolitan Hope Memorial Hospital, and with the four principals alternating daily in the lead role, according to NBC's original announcement. The roles were Dr. William Scott (played by Jock Gaynor), Dr. Jerry Chandler (portrayed by Richard Roat), Dr. Elizabeth Hayes (played by Margot Moser) and Rev. Samuel Shafer, a hospital chaplain (played by Fred J. Scollay). * Later in the first season, Herb Kenwith and Paul Lammers became

Melody Thomas Scott Memoir 'Always Young And Restless' Out This Summer

Emmy Award-nominated Melody Thomas Scott admits she is nothing like her The Young and the Restless role, which has seen it all in her forty-one-year tenure on America’s highest-rated daytime serial. But the high drama, angst, and catastrophes aren’t confined to her character’s plotlines. In her first-ever book, the captivating memoir "Always Young And Restless" (Diversion Books; July 14, 2020, available for pre-order now; $26.99, Hardcover; ISBN 978-1635-766943), Melody reveals the intimate and complicated truths of her upbringing as well as behind-the-scenes tales of her own riveting journey to becoming an icon and searching for “normal.” “Even though I have spent almost my entire life as an actress and performer, I have kept my private life well behind the scenes,” said Scott. “Now, I am ready to share these stories of survival and success that have shaped me into who I am today.” As Nikki Newman went from impoverished stripper to resourceful, vivacious heroine—with m
