NEWS: Joshua Morrow, Jimmy Deshler, Fall Season Stereotypes, 666 Returns In June

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' Joshua Morrow Talks About Nick's Shocking Daddy Issues
"By making it clear that, in Nick's heart, he didn't do anything wrong. He was so distraught about the death of his daughter Cassie that when the paternity test for Summer came back corrupted and inconclusive — something he shared with no one — he just couldn't bear the thought of losing Summer, too. He refused to do another test. He was that sure she was his, and that much in denial. He's lived with it for so long it became the truth."

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Jimmy Deshler on his favorite places in America
"My favorite place to visit in the U.S. is…is Key Largo, FL. This is a vacation I take every year and it is one of those vacations that is truly just relaxing and taking in the sun. It’s just me, the hammock, and the sun. Oh, and of course, a little bit of fishing and snorkeling too."

The New TV Season, One Stereotype at a Time
Based on the trailers released by ABC, CBS, CW, Fox and NBC, here are a few characteristics of made-for-TV America.

To be the star of the show, it helps to be white. In 27 of the 35 shows, or 77 percent, it appears that the lead character or characters were white. Six shows have a mix of white and minority leads. That leaves 2 of 35 shows, or 6 percent, fronted by minority actors. If you’re Hispanic or black, you can be the star as long as the show involves violent crime. Talented minority actors are in demand to play white characters’ bosses, sidekicks and underlings. If you’re a woman and you’re the undisputed star of your show, you’re probably on ABC.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES' Julie Plec Answers Burning Questions and Teases Season 5
On Paul Wesley playing two roles: "Part of the fun of having an actor play two roles are those opportunities to put them face to face, but they're difficult to shoot and they take a lot of time and the stuff we do even with Katherine and Elena we do so sparingly. So we'll definitely see it, but of course Stefan will be on his own journey presumably at the bottom of the [lake] floor so we'll see when and who gets him out of that mess."

SCANDAL: More than a Crazy Soap (But Still a Delightfully Crazy Soap)
"Nearly all of the major characters are fascinatingly screwed up. You feel for them even when they treat each other cruelly. Their private pain, which periodically erupts during arguments and confessions, lends what might have been a forgettable nighttime soap a touch of tragic poetry. These people are all their own worst enemies. It’s not their fault, but it’s their responsibility. Stand close enough to the TV screen and you can see one more reflection in it."

"I would hope that, if we all survive and if the audience stays with us, we'll probably get through to seven seasons."

BATES MOTEL's Carlton Cuse on the Bloody Finale, Season 2 Plans
"Coming to terms with Miss Watson's death is a component of next season. It's not the main narrative focus of next season but it is one of the stories we're telling. It's important for the audience to get some resolution about that story and we've got a good way to do that. But there's a lot of other stuff going on in White Pine Bay that we're going to need to pay attention to as well."

ARROW's Second Season to Feature Two Villains
"We made no secret of the fact that we subscribe to the Whedonesque model of having a big bad, and in Season 2, we'll actually have two big bads," executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells TVGuide.com. "They'll both be very recognizable names to fans of the comic book. We're really excited about both of them."

"Before my time as editor Grace was burnt to death, Tom Forrest was in court for killing a poacher and there was a diamond smuggler in the village, so we're possibly less melodramatic than we were then."
