(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest buzz for “One Life to Live.”
Soap Opera Digest reports that John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex) recently signed a new four-year deal with the show. Lavoisier joined the cast in 2002.
Sean Ringgold (Shaun) will lend his voice to upcoming new “Smurfs” feature film. He will voice the character of “Bubba.” Filming began on March 26th, and a release date has been set for July 29, 2011. “Day one Shooting the Movie ” SMURFS” Playing the Role of BUBBA. Very Excited to be working with Hank AZARIA. I think all the kids will get a good laugh. I have to thank all my supportive FaceBook Family who always show love.

The cast also includes Neil Patrick Harris as Johan, Katy Perry as the voice of Smurfette, Hank Azaria as Gargamel and Paul Reubens as the voice of Jokey Smurf, among others.
Even though he has only appeared in two episodes thus far, many “OLTL” fans are bombarding the net with petitions wanting to see more of Max Tapper and the character of Detective Price. But is more of the newcomer on the way, or have we seen the last of Llanview’s newest cop?

“OLTL” Music Director Paul Glass tweets that song at the end of the June 1st episode was Keane’s “My Shadow.”
