(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Another casting call is issued and a hockey legend stops by for a visit, in this edition of Llanview Gossip.

The lowdown on the latest behind-the-scenes gossip in Llanview.

“One Life to Live” released the latest in a series of audition scripts today, this time for a “Warden.”  Apparently, the warden is at Statesville Prison with Bo, whom he calls “Commissioner” (thus making it appear anyway that Bo has his old job back).  They are discussing a hostage situation, in which a medical worker named “Ted” is holding a prisoner hostage.  Further details concerning the script remain sketchy at this time, however SON will continue to follow this story.

And Scott Clifton (Schuyler) tweeted Wednesday that “Wayne Gretzky visited the set today. C’mon. Who wants to touch me?”  It is unclear as to exactly what the “The Great One” was doing on the “OLTL” set.  Although, according to Gerry Waggett in his “One Life to Live” 40th Anniversary Trivia Book, (2008) “Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky might have guested on ‘One Life to Live’ if he hadn’t had his fill of acting during a one-day stint as a mobster on his other favorite soap, ‘The Young and the Restless.’  Gretzky does, however, count Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) and Michael Storm (Larry Wolek) among his friends; he frequently invited them to his celebrity golf tournaments.”
