      'OLTL' Casting Spree Continues: Troubled Llanview Teen Gets New Dad

      ( — David Aaron Baker returns to “One Life to Live” in a new recurring role, and will share a connection to one of Llanview’s less than honorable teen citizens.

      Soap Opera Digest is reporting that that the actor has been cast as Brad’s (Frank Dolce) father. Remember that Brad has been Jack’s (Andrew Trischitta) sidekick the past few months, while the Manning heir has been tormenting Shane Morasco (Austin Williams).

      Long-time fans may recall that this isn’t Baker’s first stint in Llanview. He originated the role of the blackmailing lab technician Jeff Barnes in 1999 (which was later taken over by Michael McGee), who put the screws to Lindsay Rappaport (Catherine Hickland) after she paid him to change the paternity test results for baby Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson), so she could get Nora (Hillary B. Smith) out of the way and have Bo (Robert S. Woods) all to herself.

      Look for Baker to first air as Brad’s dad on Friday, June 24.

      In other news…

      Carlos Gonzalez posted that he will be playing a cop on “One Life to Live” from May 25 through June 6, along with a picture of him and his fellow dayplayer cops on his website.

                    IT HAPPENED TODAY…

                    Victor sat down beside Nikki and told her that he wanted to be there for her. Embarrassed at what she had become, Nikki told him that she didn't want him to be there for her; she was ashamed and sorry for how she what she had become. Victor assured her that she would get better and that he would help her get to that place. He suggested that they head over to Victoria and Billy's to celebrate her birthday with them.

                    At the house, Billy and Victoria tried to put on a brave face while setting up for Nikki's birthday celebration. When Victoria became slightly distant, Billy reassured her that everything would be fine. Nick arrived with flowers and asked Victoria what was bothering her; she admitted that she was missing Lucy. Nick was surprised to learn that Daniel and Lucy were no longer staying there. Billy informed him that Phyllis had violated the gag order by posting blogs on the company website about Lucy.

                    Paul met Katherine at the hospital to get started on his search for Tucker's son. Katherine said she wasn't sure where they would even begin. Paul suggested they head to the one plae that Tucker could possibly have some information on his son if any. They headed to Tucker's place, unaware that Ashley was already there to get some of her belongings. She talked aloud to the picture of the two of them about Abby's actions got things so out of order. When she went into the bedroom, Katherine and Paul walked in. The two of them started to pinpoint on possible women that came and left Tucker's life. As the two talked about the possible age of Tucker's son, Ashley came out, wanting to know what they were talking about.

                    Cane wanted his mother to understand why he wanted to pull back on their plans for Colin. He stressed that he couldn't bear to see what it was doing to Lily. Genevieve told her son that he was to keep quiet and not say a word to Lily about their plan. The two started talking on how Caleb came to town and ran into Cane, quickly taking his brother's place in order to fulfill his father's wishes to have the twins with him. She said she understood that he wanted to protect Lily, but Lily couldn't be trusted to keep quiet; already telling many of her seeing Cane. She commented that if she had come anytime sooner, she would have been talking to Cane from his tombstone.

                    Colin and Jill, back with the twins from a trip to the zoo, talk on how much fun it was having them. Colin asked Jill if she would watch the twins for a bit while he took care of a few things. He was on his way to see Lily, who was at the facility talking to Devon. Devon told her he didn't realize just how bad things had gotten for her and was floored that she took it upon herself to check her own self into the hospital. She admitted that she was afraid that if she admitted to seeing Cane, she wouldn't be able to see him again in what she thinks are visions. Devon told her that she obviously knew something wasn't right for her to check into the facility. He hugged her and told her that she would be fine.

                    Nikki arrived at Billy and Victoria's, with Victor by her side. He told them that she had something to share with them. There, they learned that she was still drinking and that Victor was helping her get into a rehabilitation clinic. Victoria and Nick were proud that their mother was going to get help and fight her addiction; Nick, in turn was even more surprised that Victor was there by her side to help. Nikki shared how grateful she is to Victor being there by her side.

                    Colin arrived at the facility to see how Lily was doing. He handed her pictures of Mattie and Charlie that he took while they were on their trip to the zoo. Lily was thankful that Colin was being there for them while she was getting better. Colin made a comment about how the twins loved the koalas and kangaroos, and Lily stated that she would love for her babies to see where their father lived. Colin left an met up with a man who he hired to make passports for the twins. He stressed that he wanted them to look as authentic as possible because he wanted to make sure there was no hang ups when he took them out of the country for good.

                    Katherine demanded to know why Ashley was at Tucker's home. Ashley explained that she was there to pick up some of her clothes Still not convinced on Ashley's innocence, Katherine told her that she was not to be anywhere near Tucker. A frustrated Ashley tried to talk to Katherine about how what happened was an accident but that only made Katherine more determined to keep her at bay. Paul commented that Ashley might be able to help them when it came to details about Tucker's unknown son. Ashley didn't have any information. Once again, Katherine told Ashley that she wanted Ashley nowhere near Tucker. When Ashley left, Paul and Katherine began going through some of Tucker's paperwork and found a ripped letter from the possible mother of his son. Paul quickly collected it to see if there could be any information collected off of the letter from the lab.

                    Nikki enjoyed her birthday cake with the family and softly commented on how Billy really was trying his best to be there for her. Victoria admitted that he really was trying and knew that he loved her. Victor returned from his phone call with the facility and told Nikki that they needed to get her ready to go. When he stated that they would be taking the company jet, Nikki was surprised that Victor wanted to go with her. He assured her that he wanted to be there to make sure she was taken care of.

                    Genevieve is pleased that Cane has agreed to continue with her plans. She does mention that she wasn't pleased to learn that after Cane went into hiding with a new identity, he had found a new mother figure in Jill.

                    Katherine returned back to the hosptial to check in on Tucker. Ashley, who was already in the room, was talking to him about learning of his having a son, and how much she still loved him. When she leaned over to kiss him, the monitor started to buzz. She hurriedly called for someone to come help him.
