(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Dan Gauthier will reprise the role as Kevin Buchanan on “One Life to Live” briefly this fall.

No word yet on either Gauthier’s first airdate, or exactly how long he his stint will last.  It also remains to be seen if Kevin will be returning to Llanview alone, or if he will be bringing someone back with him.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Veteran financial news correspondent Ted David to make a special appearance on “One Life to Live” next month as Llanview’s mayoral election kicks into high gear.

For nearly 20 years, David could be found behind the CNBC anchor desk between 1989 and 2008. During his stint at The Consumer News and Business Channel, he could also be heard on CNBC radio and seen providing stock market updates on MSNBC and as a weekend anchor on WNBC-TV in New York City. Prior to joining CNBC, David was an anchor for ABC News Radio and most recently he was an anchor for “Business Week.” He currently does freelance work, most notably for Cablevision’s News12 Long Island and news radio station 1010 WINS.

Ted David will make his “One Life to Live” debut in the coming weeks when he appears in Llanview as the moderator of a political debate between incumbent Mayor Stan Lowell and challenger (and past Mayor) Viki Banks.

According to David Hinckley of the New York Daily News, the political commentator was asked to appear on the soap “after ‘OLTL’ executive producer Frank Valentini said he liked David’s work on CNBC.”

David’s first airdate will be Tuesday, September 8th, and there are hints that he may show up again sometime before the November election.

“One Life to Live” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.

Marissa defends JR to David. JR confesses to Marissa that he was thinking about Babe when he kissed her and apologizes. Ryan and Erica rush in when they witness Annie holding a gun on Adam.

‘OLTL’ September Comings & Goings

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 11:04 PM ET | By Scotty Gore


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest “One Life to Live” casting information.

Just when viewers had thought they had seen the last of Matthew Buchanan’s bully Justin, Jack Rovello is set to reprise the role he originated back in January. However this time, instead of being in Matthew’s orbit, Justin gets mixed up with some of Llanview’s more shifty characters.

With the teen last airing in June, and with Rovello’s name being absent from the closing credits in recent weeks, “OLTL” fans began to assume that the character had simply ran his course and would fade into the background. But on Monday, August 31st and Tuesday, September 1st, Justin pops up again in Llanview. After a lapse in judgement, his actions quickly land him in hot water, and could spell danger for someone else in town. To make matters worse, yet another Llanview citizen misinterprets what he sees, which could create even more danger for one person in particular.

Theis Weckesser returns as Llanview police officer Keaton on Tuesday, August 25th. Some of the more alert “OLTL” watchers may recall that this is the same man in blue that arrested Cole recently, when the teen attempted to throw away some unwanted drugs he received from Asher. Look for the corrupt cop to also air the following week as well.

Speaking of Asher (Evan Joiner), expect to see more of the pill-pushing teen and his boss Sergei (David Vadim) in late August and early September as the drug storyline begins to reach its climax.

Also receiving more airtime in the coming weeks will be Kevin O’Rourke as Mayor Stan Lowell. With November just around the corner, Llanview’s morally bankrupt commander-in-chief will be launching his re-election campaign. But will his misdeeds be exposed before it is too late? Look for John to grow even more suspicious of the shady politician, and “One Life to Live’s” two leading ladies Viki and Dorian to also get involved.

Kim Sullivan is back as Judge Runyon on Monday, August 31st, when John approaches him about getting a warrant so he can monitor his (and Bo’s) boss’s actions.

After his run-in with the Buchanans this week when his boss David Vickers attempted to make them the stars of his new reality show, Ford (David Gregory) returns on Wednesday, August 26th. It seems that David’s handsome producer leaves one of the young ladies in Llanview more than a little flustered.

Michael Lowry debuts as Ross Rayburn on Friday, August 28th, when he is tracked down in Tahiti by Blair. Seems Ross has a secret involving himself and Téa, which Blair believes she can use to her advantage.

“OLTL” has released a new audition script for the dayplayer role of a ‘Janitor.’ Apparently, ‘Geoff’ shows the custodian a picture of a man and asks the guy if he can identity him. Geoff responds that he is not a cop when the janitor asks him why he wants to know. Remember that the soap routinely changes character names in these scripts to try to throw off viewers.

Look for some hospital drama to take place in early September, as several doctor and nurse extras have been taping recently.

Head Writer Ron Carlivati tells Soap Opera Digest that “we’ll see some old faces in the coming months.”

“OLTL” Music Director Paul Glass tweets that R&B singer-songwriter Akon was originally scheduled to perform on the show alongside Lionel Richie, but was forced to cancel as the last minute.  He was replaced by Jeremih, whose hit song is entitled “Birthday Sex.”  Lionel Richie and Jeremih’s scenes will air on Tuesday, September, 29th.  

And “OLTL” marked a milestone on Tuesday, August 18th, with the airing of the soap’s 10,500th episode.

Bobbie Eakes (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest news on “AMC’s” move to California.

After weeks of rumors, on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 4, the cast of ABC’s “All My Children” were told by ABC Daytime President Brian Frons that the soap would be moving production to Los Angeles – ending its 39 year run of production in New York City. This week, in the New York Daily New and Soap Opera Digest, an ABC representative cleared up some important details about the move.

As previously reported, all of the contract actors on “AMC” have been given the option to move with the production of the show to Los Angeles or be let out of their contract should the big move conflict with their best interests. The initial report was that the actors were given just one week to make the decision. The actors were actually given the week of August 10 off to contemplate the move but an ABC representative reports that the actors have until September 8 to make their decision. The actors final decisions will be announced following that deadline. The ABC representative also confirms that many members of the cast have already made the decision to make the move; thanks to their Facebook entries, Soap Opera Network can confirm that Bobbie Eakes (Krystal Carey) and Shannon Kane (Natalia Fowler) are among those actors deciding to go left and remain with “AMC.”

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Kathy Brier announces on her website that she is “in talks to return to ‘One Life to Live’ for a few episodes” as Marcie McBain, only two months after her character packed up and moved with husband Michael from Llanview to Seattle.

    Viewers last saw Marcie on June 17th as she was helping Michael box up their personal belongings in their less-than-luxurious Angel Square apartment in preparation of the couple’s move to Seattle, where Michael had been offered a job at a prestigious hospital. Just before leaving town Marcie also got her storybook ending by learning that, after two aborted adoption attempts, she was finally pregnant with a baby of her own.

    Portraying Marcie McBain (née Walsh) since 2002 Brier, along with her onscreen hubby Michael (Chris Stack) were informed by “One Life to Live” earlier this year that the soap had no plans to keep them in Llanview once their contracts reached their expiration dates in June, citing lack of storyline possibilities as the reason for the popular couple’s termination.

    While Stack briefly reprised the role of Dr. Michael McBain for three episodes last month to help wrap up the Shane Morasco stem cells storyline, Brier and Marcie were nowhere to be seen.

    While the exact nature of Brier’s upcoming “OLTL” return have yet to be announced, her latest stint is expected to be short-term. It also remains to be seen exactly which characters Marcie will share scenes with, and if her husband Michael will be returning as well. No first airdate has been revealed, however given the fact that both parties are still hammering out the details and that “OLTL” routinely tapes approximately 4-6 weeks in advance, it would likely be sometime this fall before fans can expect to see Marcie back in Llanview.

    SON will keep you informed as this story continues to develop.

    In other news…

    Soap Opera Weekly is reporting that Eloise Mumford has been cast as Loretta Hogan, a witness called to the stand by Téa to testify in Matthew’s defense on Thursday, September 3rd. The character’s name is a play on that of “OLTL’s” publicist, Lauri Hogan.

    An ABC spokesperson tells Carolyn Hinsey of the New York Daily News that “The rumor that ‘One Life to Live’ and ‘All My Children’ will become two half-hour shows is incorrect.” Hmmm…wonder if that is the same spokesperson that told SON about a month ago that “All My Children” was NOT shifting production from New York City to Los Angeles.

    Hinsey also reports that, with regards to Thorsten Kaye (Zach “AMC,” ex-Patrick “OLTL”), a network rep. comments that “Our primary focus right now is ‘AMC.’ We hope Thorsten comes to L.A. to continue as Zach. We can’t think of other options until we know Thorsten’s decision.” Meanwhile, rumors continue to swirl that Kaye may opt out of following “AMC” to the West Coast and instead remain in New York City and return to “OLTL,” where his wife Susan Haskell portrays Marty Saybrooke.

    From the Twitter files…

    Kristen Alderson (Starr Manning) reveals that her younger brother Eddie Alderson (Matthew Buchanan) broke his wrist two weeks ago. Poor Matthew….paralyzed from the waist down and suffering from a broken wrist…can’t the kid ever catch a break?

    Alderson also provides some behind-the-scenes insight by answering a fan question about who exactly writes the notes that Starr leaves for Cole. “They [the show] wrote the note that was on the last show [Wednesday].. I usually write the notes…but they did this one for some reason. lol”

    And, when asked by a fan if he would consider reprising the role of Antonio Vega, Kamar de los Reyes tweets that “I never like to say never but in this case it’s highly unlikely that I will ever go back to ‘OLTL.’” The actor left the sudser earlier this year when he contract was up, stating that he believed “Antonio is longer the central figure I believe he deserves to be,” and that “over the years, he has become less and less valued.” Yeah…right. No offense to the guy, but when one thinks of the great “OLTL” characters from the past 41 years (Carla Gray, Ed Hall, Victor Lord, Karen Wolek, Asa Buchanan, Victoria Lord, Todd Manning, Dorian Cramer Lord, etc…), Antonio Vega just does not come to mind.

    Gregory Helps Bring Reality to Llanview

    Thursday, August 13, 2009 12:36 AM ET | By Scotty Gore


    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Earlier this week, David Vickers returned to Llanview with a camera crew in tow, hoping to film a new reality show using some of the town’s leading families. Now SON has learned new details about the actor portraying the would-be show’s producer, Ford.

    Back in Llanview for only two days, viewers have already seen the lovable conman David Vickers (Tuc Watkins, who is expected to remain in Llanview through at least November) and his entourage get hosed down by Dorian and shot down by Viki. They also saw one member of the crew, Ford, get yanked out of the bushes by Jessica Brennan, who mistakes the reality show producer for her mysterious stalker.

    Portraying Ford is 24-year-old Fairbanks, Alaska native David Gregory (no relation to the NBC news correspondent of the same name), who sat down recently to talk with the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

    Gregory mentions that he is currently filming a new romantic comedy directed by James L. Brooks. The as-yet-untitled film also stars Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Jack Nicholson and Paul Rudd. “The filming is taking place in Philadelphia and other cities until the fall,” the paper notes.

    One of three sons, the aspiring actor’s first stage performance came at an early age, when he impersonated Jerry Lewis as part of a local contest. According to the News-Miner, Gregory is also an accomplished dancer, whose credits include “the Fairbanks Summer Fine Arts Camp, the North Star Ballet, the Fairbanks Light Opera Theatre, the Fairbanks Drama Association, the UAF Music Department, the Mo Holland Dance Studio, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival and other groups and individuals. “

    In addition to his scenes this week, David Gregory is also expected to air as Ford on August 19, 20, 26, 27, Sept. 8 and 16.

    “I haven’t watched a soap in years but I guess I’m going to start now,” comments Gregory’s mother Carol.

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The secret is out, Dante Falconeri (aka: Dominic Pirelli), is a cop and is in Port Charles to take down the infamous Corinthos/Zacchara organization headed by Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Only problem is, Dominic/Dante doesn’t know that Sonny is really his daddy courtesy of a high school romp mommy Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) had with Sonny when she was young.

    On the Tuesday, August 11 episode of “General Hospital,” after Dante is arrested while infiltrating a Zacchara drug shipment, Commissioner Mac Scorpio (John York) and new Assistant District Attorney Louise Addison (Cara Pifko) learn that Dominic is living a double life as a cop working a sting operation with intentions of taking down the Zacchara’s. This explains all those secret conversations Dominic has been having with Ronnie Dimestico (Ronnie Marmo) over the last couple of weeks.
