‘One Life’ Issues New Casting Call
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” issues another new casting call and some minor casting odds and ends for the months of May and June.
The latest audition script is for the role of “Louie.” The scene opens with “Tim” reading an article in the newspaper about “Max.” Louie tells him that he shouldn’t believe what he reads in that particular paper. Tim states that at one time it was a good newspaper, until someone stole it, along with the rest of his life, from him. Louie agrees and said that his ex-wife’s current husband did a similar number on him, detailing all the things he took from him, even saying that someone at Rodi’s even thinks the guy looks just like Bon Jovi.
Tim assures him that he’s not crazy and that he knows exactly who he is. Louie says to Tim that everyone knows that some professionals tried to kill him. Louie goes on to assure Tim that he will help him with his predicament, but that he will have to stay somewhere else. Tim says that he really appreciates all his help, and he’ll return the favor someday. Louie says he isn’t getting his hopes up. However, Tim reminds him that he will never forget the fact that he saved his life. Louie then asks he has contacted the police, to which Tim responds that he doesn’t like cops. Louie says that he agrees, however, there is one cop in particular that he can trust. As the scene ends, Louie goes on to explain, talking about what a nice guy this one cop is and that he can be trusted.
Remember that in these scripts, the show tries to throw viewers off the trail by changing character names.

Looks like the bullying storyline between Shane (Austin Williams) and Jack (Andrew Trischitta) isn’t quite over yet.

Remember last year (June 23 to be exact) when Ford (David A. Gregory) was given a sponge by a nurse while recuperating after being nearly bludgeoned to death by Eli Clarke? That’s what we thought (one of “One Life to Live’s” finer moments it was not). Anyway, that same nurse returns on Tuesday, May 24 when Ford once again catches her eye and she tries to put the moves on him while the pair are talking over drinks. Only now, Ford is more of a gentleman (let the redeeming commence). But in true soap fashion, she plants a kiss on him, which Tess (Bree Williamson) sees. Talk about exciting…
