The View Reportedly Finds Two New Panelists

Season 18 of The View was a rebuilding one. The veteran daytime chatfest moved into a new studio and overhauled the panel, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the sole returnee. Fast forward to Season 19, and once again the Ghost actress is the last woman standing. Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicole Wallace just didn’t work out.

The View has already announced Michelle Collins and Ravyen-Symone as permanent co-panelists moving forward. It appears producers have found two more women to usher in yet another new era for the once watercooler show.

Not surprisingly, Candace Cameron Bure is poised to become one of the new co-hosts. She easily fills the resident conservative SLASH religious spot. She’s guest hosted a handful of times and already butted heads with Raven. Did you see their heated debate about the bakery that wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple? Talk about tense. These two will undoubtedly bring plenty of fireworks with their opposing viewpoints.

Yesterday, we saw Lifetime’s first promo pic for The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story. Today, it’s time for the other Aaron Spelling 90s hit to take center stage. The network unveiled their casting choices to play Brenda, Brandon, Kelly and Peach Pit crew for the The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 airing on October 3.

Just like the Melrose Place doppelgängers, the network has chosen wisely in a couple instances for the 90210 tell-all. The Dylan Mckay, Steve Sanders and Andrea Zuckerman are bang-on. Check out the cast photo below and weigh in afterward.

In the past, the cast promo photos for their unauthorized films have been more entertaining than the actual movie. The actors chosen to portray the iconic characters are usually busted-up poor-man versions of the originals. This time around, Lifetime hasn’t completely fumbled on their choices. Some of their picks aren’t bad.

With the iconic FOX nighttime soap spanning seven seasons and 226 episodes, naturally not every character could be featured in Lifetime’s Unauthorized Melrose Place Story. A few of the notable cast members missing from the promo photo include Lisa Rinna, Kristen Davis, Alyssa Milano, Jack Wagner and Kelly Rutherford.

The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story airs on Lifetime on October 10. Check out the cast promo photo below. I can’t wait for the first trailer to drop.

FOX was having such a difficult time casting Danny Zuko, it pushed the live broadcast from 2015 to January 31, 2016. I was beginning to wonder if anyone could ever fill John Travolta’s shoes. At long last, the network has finally found its leading man.

Aaron Tveit has been given the monumental task of playing the head T Bird. Currently, the 31-year-old can be seen on the cable series Graceland, but he has quite the extensive stage resume. He’s appeared in Catch Me If You Can and Next To Normal on Broadway. Not to mention his turn as Enjolras in the big-budget film adaptation of Les Miserables in 2012. He should do just fine with his new high-profile gig.

“I’m thrilled and honored to be joining this incredibly talented team of actors in re-imagining this classic and beloved musical,” Tveit said. “Playing Danny Zuko is a dream role and I can’t wait to be a part of all the fun that comes along with performing live on television.”

Tveit joins previously announced cast members Julianne Hough (Sandy), Vanessa Hudgens (Rizzo) and Keke Palmer (Marty). Find out below who’s playing his on-screen sidekick Kenickie.
