‘OLTL’ Fall Casting Notes

Friday, September 24, 2010 at 2:00 AM ET by Scotty Gore

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — In addition to all the new characters coming to Llanview this fall, fans can also look forward to seeing a few familiar faces as well. 

With two of Viki’s children already in Llanview (Jessica and Natalie), and another on his way back home (Joey), it was only a matter of time before her eldest son Kevin returned to Llanview as well.  According to a message posted Thursday evening on his Fan Page on Facebook, “Dan [Gauthier] will be returning to OLTL for a few episodes.. . no air date yet.” SON will continue to follow the story and bring you details as they develop.

Gauthier became the 11th actor to tackle the character of Kevin Buchanan when he stepped into the role in 2003.  Despite being fired from “One Life to Live” in 2006, he returned briefly in August of 2007 (for the show’s 10,000th episode), and then again in October and November of 2009.  Gauthier last appeared as Kevin in March of this year. 

Gauthier won’t be the only familiar face returning to Llanview this fall.  Tonye Patano will appear again as Phylicia Evans (and presumably Frankie Faison as her husband Richard Evans as well) during the first week of October when Greg is rushed to the hospital by John McBain, who finds him near death as a result of Eli injecting him with a potentially lethal drug.  On Tuesday, October 5, John shocks Mrs. Evans by telling her of her son’s connection to Elijah Clarke. 

Wondering what has brought Markko Rivera (Jason Tam) back to town?  Well, it isn’t because of his feelings for Langston, that’s for sure.  On Monday, September 27, Markko tells his ex that he came home for his parents Aurelia (Ada Maris) and Ernesto (David Piñón) because his father needs non-life threatening surgery. 

And, are Ross Rayburn’s (Bill Warlock) days in Llanview numbered?  On Wednesday, October 6, Ross is shot and pushed into the Llantano River by Eli during a confrontation between the two brothers.  Later Todd pulls him from the river just as Dani arrives on the scene…but will it be too late? 

In other news…

Congratulations for Kathy Brier (ex-Marcie), who wed her fiancé Jason Munt last weekend. 

Sight for sore eyes?  Tom Zeman (Morgan Guthrie) and Saundra Santiago (Carlotta) both made appearances earlier this week.

For those asking, the song in the montage at the end of the September 19 episode was Surrender by the group Digital Daggers.

Terrell Tilford (Greg) has added another November airdate — the 16th — to his list on his Facebook page.  He also comments that Sept. 22nd was an”Enduring day at the studio.  Ugh! Tough lines, check…This script is so dense…I keep discovering so much to use!”

Kristen Alderson (Starr) tweets “Thanks everyone for your compliments about my scenes lately.It means a lot.There are so many amazing things that we’ve been filming that hasn’t aired yet, and won’t for a while…but I am very proud of them.I am SO blessed to work with the cast on our show,” and that she is “Seriously thinking about exploring the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ idea…that would be a crazy/amazing experience.”

And Melissa Archer (Natalie) says she “Very long day [on the set] today [Sept. 21st], but all very good. Sweet dreams!!”

    ‘One Life’ Goes on Casting Spree

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Just when you thought the cast of “One Life to Live” couldn’t get any more bloated than it already was, the soap adds one new character and issues casting calls for two others.

    In addition to the “One Life’s” quest to recast the the role of Viki and Clint’s youngest son Joey, which SON told you about last week, the show’s casting department has been busy working to fill a few other new upcoming roles as well.

    For starters, are you like the one or two other “OLTL” fans that can’t get enough of the Ford brothers? Then you’re in luck. The Ford family unit is now complete in Llanview as Soap Opera Digest reports that the show has tapped John Wesley Shipp for the recurring role of the boys father (and Inez’s ex-husband) Eddie, who is described as being in his “40′s, early 50′s, underneath his hot, handsome, sexy, charming exterior lies an extremely violent and abusive nature.”

    This will mark Shipp’s second stint in Llanview. In 1989, he played Blanchard Lovelace on the show. In addition, the actor has also appeared on “Guiding Light,” “As the World Turns,” “All My Children,” “Santa Barbara,” “Palmetto Pointe,” “Sisters,” and “Dawson’s Creek.”

    Look for Shipp is first air as Eddie sometime in early November.

    Also, “One Life to Live” has released a casting call for the conract role of “Aubrey,” who is said to be a “beautiful, sexy Caucasian woman in her mid 20s-30s, who’s proper breeding masks her free-spirited nature.”

    Lastly, the show has also issued a casting call for the minor role of “Vimal.” As the scene opens, “Markus” is telling Vimal that he has another job for him, since he did such a terrific job with the clone, saying that he’s sure it will give them safe entry into the hospital. Vimal replies that he is proud of his work. Markus tells him that’s good, since his life depends on it. Despite Vimal’s questions and objections, Markus tells him that there are some DNA tests that are pending at Llanview Hospital, and that he going to go into the lab and ensure that the tests turn out the way he wants them to. To this, Vimal agrees that it is a challenge, but reminds Markus that tampering with DNA tests is illegal. Markus says that’s true, but only if you get caught, and that Vimal must be discreet. He goes on to remind Vimal that, if he does as he is told, he will have a bright future ahead of him…maybe even becoming head of the department. Persuading to do the job, Vimal says he will do it. As the scene ends, Markus informs him that there is one other little thing that he needs Vimal to do while he is in the lab.

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — By now you’ve probably heard that “Guiding Light” alum Kim Zimmer is returning to “One Life to Live” on Friday, October 1, to reprise the role Echo DiSavoy. But what will this mean for the residents of Llanview? Soap Opera Network has your exclusive sneak peek at what is bringing the minor 1980s character back to town.

    It all begins when Echo turns up on Viki’s doorstep at Llanfair. It turns out that, since leaving town in 1983, she and Viki’s (Erika Slezak) current husband Charlie (Brian Kerwin) crossed paths on more than one occasion. As the two old flames catch up on recent events, Viki remains suspicious of Echo’s sudden reappearance in Llanview after nearly thirty years (which makes sense, since the last time she was in town she tried to frame Viki’s then husband Clint [Jerry verDorn] for murder).

    But wait, there’s more…despite telling Charlie she has no ulterior motives for returning to town, Viki succeeds in getting her to admit otherwise. What’s worse, it seem’s Echo is now claiming to be a fashion photographer and makes interesting proposition to Viki, in hopes she will hire her at the The Banner. But will Viki be persuaded by what she has to say?

    Afterward, Viki voices her concerns to Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) and Natalie (Melissa Archer), while Echo goes to visit another one of her old friends — Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser).  Problem is, however, that Dorian doesn’t give her quite the reception she was hoping for when Viki’s name comes up during their conversation.  Furthermore, Echo is carrying around some major secrets concerning some of the residents of Llanview.

    And that’s only the beginning…
