Rebecca Budig on Prospect Park's ALL MY CHILDREN: 'I expressed interest and then they never came back to me!'
"I wasn't insulted at all but I was a little disappointed. I really, really miss Greenlee. But, then, none of my men were there. They didn't have Cameron Mathison. They were never going to get Josh Duhamel. What they should have done was bring back Danny Cosgrove, who is amazing. Love that guy! Michael B. Jordan was my brother on AMC and now he's a big movie star. So what were they gonna do with me? I'd be all alone!"

DAYS OF OUR LIVES actor Riley Bodenstab to guest star on JUSTIFIED
Bodenstab, whose alter ego Cole has been making a lot of trouble for JJ, makes his first appearance Tuesday night on FX’s JUSTIFIED. “It was really rewarding to work with [star] Timothy Olyphant,” enthuses Bodenstab. “I admire his acting and look up to him.” Bodenstab is limited in what he can reveal about his JUSTIFIED appearance but teases, “It’s a little similar to other characters that I’ve played, but it also has an interesting angle that I haven’t been able to hit before. It’s a very dynamic character.”

DOWNTON ABBEY Downton Abbey Producer Defends Controversial Storyline
Gareth Neame, the series' executive producer, was prepared for backlash after the shocking twist sparked rage from horrified English viewers. "It had a big reaction and a lot of people were upset by it," Neame acknowledges. "Like the death of the Matthew Crawley character, audiences are very protective of these characters and view them as an extension of their own families. The big thing about our show is there being big twists and surprises, and this (incident) is perpetrated on possibly the most beloved character of all: the one with the warmest heart."

At the Golden Globes, sloppy gets it done
Nobody had an acceptance speech ready. Nobody could get to the stage in a timely manner. The red carpet was accidentally soaked before the show in dirty drain water. Men showed up with fancier hairdos than the women. The Breathalyzer results were just north of handcuffable. This is all we ever really ask for from any awards show — something to look at and laugh off.
