Young, restless and featured in new films, pilots, and Netflix series.

From feature films to network TV and an HBO pilot, Soaps.com has the scoop on what several Young and the Restless alums have coming up next.

Halfway

Noemi Gonzalez (Mia Rosales) expressed her gratitude on Instagram for being part of the cast of a new HBO pilot, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Titled Halfway, the show centers on a woman (Anastasia Leddick) out on parole for a drug charge who must live by the rules of a Christian halfway house in order to stay clean and regain custody of her daughter. It is not clear who Gonzalez portrays, but she said she is “so thankful and excited to be a part of @tribeca and with SUCH a great pilot!!!”

Kissing Cousins

Noah Newman’s portrayer, Robert Adamson, can be seen in the upcoming feature film Kissing Cousins as the character Rick. The movie is in post-production and tells the story of a woman named Jamie Mayfield (Emma Bell) who leaves her cheating husband to visit family in North Carolina with her six-year-old son and falls for a charming man who turns out to be her paranoid schizophrenic cousin. A release date hasn’t yet been set, but director Michael Feifer shared a still image of an interrogation scene featuring Adamson on Instagram.

Becoming A Hero

Max Shippee (Graham Bloodworth) continues to work on his co-starring turn in Becoming A Hero, a primarily women-produced and directed film about an agoraphobic children’s book author and a boy with cancer who tackle fears and life together. The crowdfunded production is sending a percentage of donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. On Instagram, Shippee is shown to be playing piano in addition to working on his script. He writes that “It ain’t all #glamour… #working the #script to #godeep in the upcoming @becomingaherothemovie … this part would be so easy to just do off the cuff and without much prep, and it would be “fine”… but the story of the film has so much #truth and #depth to it, that it needs continuous, #daily #work… its so fun tokeep finding little hidden gems 💎!!!”
