(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Roscoe Born makes a brief return, Scott Evans squashes rumors that he is leaving “One Life,” Scott Clifton comments on his recent firing, Brandon Buddy gets injured on the set, Kristen Alderson talks about what’s next for Starr, David Vickers returns, and two dayplayer roles play important parts in upcoming storylines, all in this and more in this edition of Llanview Gossip.
Although Roscoe Born may have only recently wrapped up his latest short-term stint on “One Life to Live” as cult leader Mitch Laurence, at least one report has him back at the studio’s taping additional scenes. According to The Suds Report, the actor was back at “One Life” a couple of weeks ago to help wrap up the Mitch storyline.
Scott Evans‘ Twitter comments left many fans wondering if the popular actor, who portrays Oliver Fish, was planning on leaving Llanview in the near future. On March 1st Evans tweeted that “I have some pretty big decisions to make. Things are definitely gonna change.” He clarified the matter a few days later, assuring fans that “I have no plans to leave OLTL everyone. It’s not even really in my hands!” In addition, there is speculation that Evans, who is on recurring status with “OLTL,” recently auditioned for the CBS television pilot “Reagan’s Law,” while on a recent trip to Los Angeles.
As SON told you yesterday, Scott Clifton (Schuyler) was released from his contract by “One Life.” Soon after the story broke, Clifton took to his Twitter page. Responding to the news, he told fans that “Hey guys, just want to let you know the rumors are true: I killed JFK. (Oh, wait, the OTHER rumor? Yeah that’s true too. ‘OLTL’ let me go.) Had a blast working on the show, with a KILLER conclusion. I really hope you guys keep watching ’cause I did some work I’m really proud of. So, a lot of questions about returning to ‘GH’ as ‘Dillon.’ I honestly think that’s up to them, but I’d be open to it. They’re like family. Otherwise, it’s gonna be about going back to my roots: Move to LA and audition my ass off. That’s where it’s at, man. Life’s a gamble.”
Brandon Buddy (Cole) suffered a minor injury to his right hand while taping scenes with Trevor St. John (Todd) on Tuesday, which left one of his knuckles rather swollen. Co-star Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweets that “haha that’s what’cha get after a todd&cole scene.” She also posted a picture of Buddy’s injured hand:
Alderson also previews what’s next for Starr, saying that “I’m really excited.. my scripts this week are really fun ; ) Starr’s striking back baby lol”
For those of you who just can’t get enough of Tuc Watkins (David Vickers Buchanan), the funny man returns once again on Wednesday, April 1st, and will interact with his uncle’s new bride.
Look for two important dayplayer roles the last full week of March. First, on Monday, March 22nd, a pizza delivery girl innocently tips off Starr that she saw Cole studying with Hannah in her dorm room. And on Friday, March 26th, look for Todd to attempt to bribe a prison guard, so that he and Kelly can question Mitch about her mother’s death.
