Tuc Watkins' 'Life' Ends Again

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Here today, gone tomorrow.  Tuc Watkins latest stint in Llanview as David Vickers Buchanan has proven to be like all his others…faster than a New York minute. On Monday, April 11, just as David and his lady love Mayor Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser) settle into married life, they are faced with a tough decision regarding their future together.

That’s right, after returning to “One Life to Live” on March 15, Watkins already has both feet out the studio door. However, as fans have come to expect with the actor, a rep for the show reminds us that he is bound to return sooner or later for yet another brief stint. In the meantime, however, look for the newlyweds to discuss whether or not they can handle a long distance relationship with David supervising production of his biopic on the West Coast, while Dorian remains in Llanview to tend to her mayoral duties.

Watkins originated the role of David in 1994 and has played the character on and off first leaving the show in 1996. He has also appeared on “General Hospital,” “Beggars & Choosers,” and “Desperate Housewives.”

      Llanview Casting Gossip: April 7 Edition

      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” minor casting odds and ends for April and beyond.

      Matthew Conlon returns as Paris art gallery owner M. Claude Calmar on Friday, April 22, when he pays Tomas a visit.

      John Wesley Shipp appeared in new flashback scenes on Wednesday, April 6, and will again on Tuesday, April 26.

      Carolina Bermudez, as we previously reported, will play a reporter named Blanca in five episodes of “OLTL” beginning Monday, April 11.  In a new interview, the radio DJ says that “Working on ‘One Life to Live’ has been such an amazing experience and I can’t wait for everyone to see how I shake things up in Llanview. Working with a cast I’ve admired since I was a little girl is incredibly surreal and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”  Bermudez’s radio co-host Elvis Duran praised his co-host, saying “Carolina is perfect for a soap opera role, considering she rarely knows the difference between reality and fantasy. Now they can get a dose of her drama queen tendencies.”

      Kassie DePaiva (Blair) has weighed in on Roger Howarth‘s return to “One Life,” tweeting that she was “Thrilled Roger Howarth will b back. Between Ted [King], Trevor [St. John], & Roger… 3 amazingly talented actors. Possibilities r endless. Kudos 2 ‘OLTL!’”

      David A. Gregory (Ford) informs fans they haven’t seen the last of the Ford brother’s mother Inez Salinger (Jessica Leccia), saying simply that “She’ll be back :).” And he states that, while he isn’t sure of his exact airdates this month, that “[He does] remember April being a busy month for Ford lol.”

      Connie Renda will return in the coming weeks as a nurse at Llanview Hospital. Renda last appeared in two episodes in January in scenes with Natalie, John, and Marty, following the birth of Natalie’s baby Liam. “Hello everyone! I shot 2 episodes of One Life to Live! The episodes air January 14th and 17th! Was lots of fun to shoot! Lots of drama as the neonatal nurse,” she wrote on her website back in December. Although her next airdate has not been announced, Renda noted on her website a few weeks ago “‘One Life to Live’ once again! After the last episodes, you’d think the nurse would have been fired! Maybe just reprimanded, because I’m very grateful to be doing another episode as a nurse. Air date TBD… will write more soon.”

      John Rochette taped scenes as a Doctor back on January 13.

      Speaking of doctors, look for a new one (listed in breakdowns as Dr. Buhari) to debut on Thursday, April 7. While the person cast in the role remains unknown at this time, look for the new recurring doc to share scenes in the coming weeks with several Llanview residents, including Rex, Gigi, Shane, John, and Marty.

      Chris Campanioni (aka Chris Cuba) played the male porn star in scenes on Friday, April 1 and Monday, April 4. Also during those same porn scenes, Isaac Hirotsu Woofter played a film crew member.

      Click here, here, and here to watch a couple of newly uploaded video auditions of different actresses trying out roles recently on “One Life to Live.”

      Several “OLTL” cast members have commented on the great work that their younger co-stars Austin Williams (Shane) and Eddie Alderson (Matthew) have done lately with regards to their respective storylines.  David A. Gregory (Ford) said on Facebook that “Eddie’s my dressing room buddy at ‘One Life’ – so proud! Between him and Austin as Shane this week, these dudes are on fire! Eddie Alderson TORE. IT. UP. Today [April 6]! Also, good to see JWS back as Papa Bear.” Mark Lawson (Brody) said “Agreed. The young men are really bringing it.” And Eddie’s older sister Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweeted that “Awesome ‘OLTL’ show today [April 5]! My brother is a good little actor! or should I say murderer….lol. How cool was it when Clint said Matthew killed Eddie!!! GAVE ME CHILLS!

      Kristen also tweeted on April 3 that “My script for tomorrow made me cry.”

      And the song used in the montage at the end of the April 5 episode was “The Water” by the group Hurts.

        IT HAPPENED TODAY…

        As Malcolm is helping Phyllis with the memory cards to help clear Sharon, Neil question if Sophia truly wants to marry his brother.

        Jack runs into Ashley and Tucker, who are looking at various locations to be married. He fills them in on how Sharon's trial has gone. They begin talking about how Sharon should have steered clear of Adam; Jack makes a quip about her not being the only one that should watch who they are with. Ashley instantly takes offense.

        Adam tells Sharon that the system has failed her and that she needs to run away before they put her in jail for a long time. Sharon refuses to take Adam up on his idea of skipping town; especially when it comes to not being with her children.

        Victor and Michael are at the Genoa City Athletic Club discussing business when Diane and Kyle show up. The minute Nick arrives, Diane's attentions instantly focus on him. The two begin to have a brief conversation, to the displeasure of Victor. Victor tells Michael that he's using every weakness that Diane has as his advantage. When Abby arrives, she wants to try to spend time with Victor, who rudely ignores her.

        Sofia becomes upset when Neil tries to talk her out of marrying Malcolm. She brings up the past Malcolm and he had when it came to Drucilla. The two of them begin to squabble, which Malcolm notices. The two of them quickly cover and pretend they are fussing about the location of the wedding. When Neil leaves, Malcolm asks Sofia what's really going on.

        Ashley, who is at Gloworm with Tucker, spots Diane at the bar. She casually makes her way over to her and puts in her two cents about Victor; and how, like she, Diane will see that Victor is all about himself. She also tosses in how Nikki will always be a factor in Victor's life and that it might be best for her to find someone that is more suitable for her.

        After Abby makes a cutting comment toward, Tucker, she departs to get a drink. He fakes concern with Ashley and tells her he'll talk to her. When he reaches Abby, though, all he cares about is getting her stocks that Brad gave to her. When Abby sees Diane at the bar, she remembers how she caught the two of them together. She coldly tells Tucker she doesn't do business with people she can't trust.

        Taking a raincheck with Jack, Phyllis heads over to Nick's to pick up Summer. The two of them get cozy over beers together. She soon gets a knot in her back, which Nick kindly tends to. When Summer comes back down with her belongings for her sleepover, Phyllis departs, but not before having a meaningful look with Nick.

        Jack learns from Diane that Victor has been working hard on the IPO. When Victor shows up, Jack happily announces to him that he can't wait to get some of that stock. Victor smugly tells him not to hold his breath, and escorts Diane over to another table. Alone together, Victor tells Diane that there are some things that he won't allow as long as they are together. She soon realizes that he's talking about her talking to Nick. Victor tells Diane she's not kidding anyone.
