Soap Opera Network has learned that "General Hospital" and "General Hospital: Night Shift" alum, Minae Noji, has landed a top secret role in the new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film set for release in 2014. Starring Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Jeremy Howard as Donatello and Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, rumor has it that Noji will be portraying the role of Karai, a character first introduced in the 1992 comic book series, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."
As first noted on the Friday, August 16 episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," several of Katherine Chancellor's friends and family received postcards informing them to be at the grand dames home on that particular date and at "8:00pm sharp." Yesterday, following news of when the show will honor the life of Katherine on screen, the show unveiled a website dedicated to character that includes a gallery on the site that breaks down the postcards each of her friends and family received, some of which were sent before Katherine decided to have people gather at her home.
Using the Drupal content management platform, Prospect Park's The OnLine Network has revamped its TOLN.com website, which is the online home of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." The new website was first released on Thursday, August 15, before TOLN officially announced its unveiling yesterday. Previously, TOLN.com was an internet hub that solely enabled online viewers of "AMC" and "OLTL" to watch the soaps outside of Hulu's website. Eventually, TOLN.com, along with AllMyChildren.com and OneLifetoLive.com were all re-directed to Hulu.com. On Friday, August 2, TOLN announced plans to revamp its website in order to provide a "New, User-Friendly Web Portal and App" experience for viewers. It's unknown when TOLN plans to launch the app, which it said will be available for Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platforms and will include exclusive clips, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage from each series and provide access to full length episodes. The TOLN app will work on all iOS (3G and Retina Display) and Android devices.
