Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 2:00 PM ET by Scotty GorePhoto: JPI( -- Just when you thought the cast of "One Life to Live" couldn't get any more bloated than it already was, the soap adds one new character and issues casting calls for two others. In addition to the "One Life's" quest to recast the the role of Viki and Clint's youngest son Joey, which SON told you about last week, the show's casting department has been busy working to fill a few other new upcoming roles as well. For starters, are you like the one or two other "OLTL" fans that can't get enough of the Ford brothers? Then you're in luck. The Ford family unit is now complete in Llanview as Soap Opera Digest reports that the show has tapped John Wesley Shipp for the recurring role of the boys father (and Inez's ex-husband) Eddie, who is described as being in his "40's, early...

"I just didn't want to make the story more specific at this point. However, that's not to say that I won't be getting very specific in three or four or five months down the line."That time is now as the show has cast actress Andrea Bogart in the role of a prostitute named Candy, who is hired by Sam McCall...

But what will this mean for the residents of Llanview? Soap Opera Network has your exclusive sneak peek at what is bringing the minor 1980s character back to town.
