Riff Raff and Snoop Dogg Bring Rap Style to Llanview on ‘One Life to Live’
On Wednesday, April 10, rapper Riff Raff taped scenes alongside “One Life to Live’s” Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth) for an upcoming appearance on the online version of the soap opera. According to The OnLine Network, Riff Raff will portray a character by the name of “Jamie Franko,” which sounds awfully similar in name to that of actor James Franco. Riff Raff has made claims that a character Franco portrays in the film “Spring Breakers” resembles that of himself, a claim which has denied by Franco. Riff Raff first airs on Tuesday, May 7.
Rapper and (sometimes) actor Snoop Dogg filmed scenes on Thursday, April 11. “OLTL” Associate Producer, Jared Kaplan tweeted, “
@SnoopDogg has returned to #OLTL! Taped a few scenes yesterday. He’s a fan and HUGE supporter of the show.” In May 2008, Snoop Dogg appeared as himself (real name Calvin Broadus) for two episodes on the ABC version of the soap. He returned again in February 2010. In addition to appearing on the soap, Dogg also sang an original version of the shows opening theme (which can be viewed below). No airdate had been announced at press time.
Canceled by ABC in 2011, One Life to Live returns with daily 30-minute webisodes available through Hulu and iTunes on April 29. If you are curious to see how Riff Raff’s guest arc plays out, his episode will air on May 7.
