alt(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest coming and goings for “One Life to Live.”  

As SON first reported last week, the soap is planning to introduce the estranged parents of the late Nash Brennan (Forbes March), who died last June.  Now we can confirm the names of the actors cast in the roles. 

Portraying Nash’s mother Cindy Brennan will be Broadway star Jan Maxwell.  Best known for her roles in theater productions such as “The Sound of Music,” “The King and I,” “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” and “Dancing with Lughnasa,” the Tony and Drama Desk Award winning actress has also made numerous television appearances, including “Law & Order” and “Gossip Girl.”  In addition, Maxwell also made several appearances on “All My Children” during the summer of 2007 as Judge Myatt. 

In the role of Nash’s father Phil will be fellow Broadway performer John Wojda.  The actor is best known for his appearances on “Law & Order,” “Third Watch,” and as a construction worker in the 2000 remake of the movie “Shaft.” 

Look for Maxwell and Wojda to first air as Phil and Cindy Brennan on May 28th, when Bess (pretending to be their former daughter-in-law Jessica) arrives on the Brennan’s doorstep with baby Hope.

Parker Fong portrays Little Girl #1 on June 25th.  Other television appearances include “Sex and the City.”

John Rochette portrays a Delivery Man on July 1st. The actor’s daytime credits include bit parts on “OLTL” as an Indie Band Drummer and Photographer, “All My Children” as a Valley Inn Waiter, “Guiding Light” as Harris.  Also around that time, look for more dayplayer roles on June 17th and 18th, along with July 3rd.

Eric Martin Brown pops up again as Stacy’s former Vegas boss Stan on June 1st. 

And Jean Randolph “returns” on June 3rd as Viki Davidson (Erika Slezak) feigns releasing her cold, calculating gatekeeper personality in an attempt to reason with Bess. 

“One Life to Live” airs weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
