    Following months of speculation, the announcement has finally been made official today. ABC has announced plans to cancel two-thirds of their daytime soap line-up. According to reports, “All My Children” will last air in September, while “One Life to Live” will leave the air in January 2012. The move will leave “General Hospital” as the network’s only remaining daytime drama.

    Reaction is slowly beginning to trickle in from the cast and crew of both soaps. David A. Gregory (Robert Ford, “OLTL”) posted on Facebook this afternoon that “Oh, guys, it’s with great difficulty I report that at a company meeting today, we were told the ‘OLTL’ will be taping their last episodes in November. Airing Jan. 2012. ‘AMC’ will finish taping in August. Thank you all so much for your support of not only Daytime TV, but the ABC soaps: especially ‘OLTL.’ And the Ford clan!! Love you guys. Frank [Valentini] has promised were goin’ out with a bang so get ready!”

        ‘One Life’ Releases New Casting Call

        'One Life' Releases New Casting Call

        ( — “One Life to Live” has issued yet another casting call, this time recycling the script for the former minor recurring character of Reed Wagner. You may remember that Reed (originally portrayed by Gavin Alexander Hammon) was the man whom Kelly (Gina Tognoni) had an affair with while still married to Kevin Buchanan and living in London, and then followed her to Llanview.

        The script opens with “Reed” and “Katherine Mackenzie” in a restaurant. Katherine walks over to Reed’s table and tells him that she got his message and that they need to talk. Reed notices her hesitation and admits that he first thought she was trying to run out on him again, which makes Katerine somewhat defensive. This prompts Reed to recall how she left London just as things were starting to get hot and heavy between them. However, Katherine insists it was nothing but more than a celebration of the launch of their new wine. Reed remembers how she used talk endlessly about the vineyard. Katerine claims it was only because she owned stock in the operation and was just trying to make small talk with him. Reed relents, but asks her not to run away again. As the scene ends, Katherine states that she can’t make any promises to to that effect.

        It isn’t yet known, however, if the show is recasting the role of Reed of simply using this script to cast (or react) a different role.

            ( — With his character Cole Thornhart serving a ten-year jail sentence for murdering a man and his on-screen mother Susan Haskell preparing to leave town, could Brandon Buddy be on his way back to Llanview?

            You may recall that Buddy left the show last November after choosing not to renew his contract, following a much publicized Twitter hacking scandal. Now the actor takes to the social networking site again, this time to discuss the possibility of returning to “One Life to Live.

            On April 13, Buddy tweeted a message to his fans, saying “As for going back to ‘OLTL’…. hmmm I’m not sure if it’s in my hands or not. I would love to come back for a little bit but only 4 all of u!”

            Buddy played Cole, the son of Marty Saybrooke and the late Patrick Thornhart, from 2006-2010.

            Kristen Alderson (Starr), Buddy’s former on-screen girlfriend recently tweeted in response to a question from a fan that “No, it was Brandon’s choice to leave [the show]…don’t feel sorry for him. =) It wasn’t ‘OLTL’s’ choice to not have him.”

            On a related note, it appears that Cole’s deceased dad (Thorsten Kaye) may be returning to Llanview as well, since “One Life to Live” is currently casting a “Thorsten Kaye Body Double” for some upcoming scenes.

            'One Life' Casting Thorsten Kaye Look-Alike

            ( — Is Patrick Thornhart (Thorsten Kaye) on his way back to Llanview? Rumors are flying after “One Life to Live” issues a surprising casting call for the role.

            On Wednesday (April 13), “One Life to Live” announced plans to cast the dayplayer role of a “Thorsten Kaye Body Double” with “long hair,” reports Soap Opera Digest. Auditions are set to begin on Monday, April 25.

            Kaye played Patrick Thornhart on “OLTL” from 1995-97. He then went on to play Patrick’s doctor Ian on “Port Charles” from 2000-2003. His most recent soap role was Zach Slater on “All My Children” from 2004-2010.

            So could the (late) Patrick be briefly returning to help escort his lady love Marty Saybrooke (played by Kaye’s real-life wife Susan Haskell) out of Llanview?  Let us know what you think!
