(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Llanview’s corrupt police commissioner will soon be without a job.
The casting shake-ups continue at “One Life to Live,” with Soap Opera Weekly reporting that Hunt Block, who joined the cast in the short-term role of rogue FBI agent turned Police Commissioner Lee Ramsey last October, has been handed his walking papers.
Prior to his stint on “OLTL,” Block became the second actor to Craig Montgomery on “As the World Turns” from 2000-2005. Additionally, Block portrayed Ben Warren on “Guiding Light” from 1997-1999, and Guy Donahue on “All My Children” in 2000. He has also appeared on stage in films such as As You Like It, Forever After and A Loss Of Memory.
In a recent interview with SOW, Block stated that “I met a lot of nice people on the show,” and that “I wish them luck.” While “OLTL” is keeping mum on the specifics of his exit, the character is not expected to leave Llanview quietly. Although no final airdate has been announced, look for Block to last air as Lee Ramsey sometime in June or July.
