As we previously reported, former “One Life to Live” actor Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth) had landed a starring role in Lifetime’s pilot, “Un-Real,” which has now officially been picked up by the network!
Deadline reports that Lifetime has ordered 10 episodes of the series, which was inspired by the award-winning short “Sequin Raze” and centers around a fictional competitive dating program in which the relationships of the contestants are manipulated to spur major drama and outrageous footage. Kelly plays the role of Jeremy, whose ex-girlfriend (Shiri Appleby) is responsible for the relationship meddling.
With no word yet on whether or not “One Life to Live” will resume production any time soon, Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth) has decided to hit the ground in search of new projects — and lucky enough, he found one: A new Lifetime pilot titled “Unreal.”
The onscreen sparks between “One Life to Live’s” Melissa Archer (Natalie Buchanan) and Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth) have definitely been worth noticing, but could the actors truly see their characters forming a meaningful relationship? Or will their fling be over in a hot second? We caught up with the pair to find out!
“It’s a very fun exploration, and I’ve love to see what they are planning to do and where they want to take it,” confesses Archer of Natalie and Cutter’s attraction to one another. “We’ve had fun so far, and I definitely think it’s exciting; I think we have good chemistry.”
In a new video released today via Yahoo! TV, The OnLine Network honors the men of Llanview, Pennsylvania (“One Life to Live”) which includes shedding new light on David Vickers (as played by Tuc Watkins), introductions to Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu), and the evolution of Bo and Clint Buchanan (Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn), respectively. Of course, there’s some insight into Cutter Wentworth (Josh Kelly) as well.
Before “One Life to Live” returned on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, we last saw Cutter Wentworth on a phone call while in prison on the ABC incarnation back in January 2012. So how did he get out and get some Shelter at Blair Cramer’s (Kassie DePaiva) new nightclub? “You mean in a TV show people can’t come back from things worse than jail?” jokingly said Cutter’s portrayer, Josh Kelly, during a recent interview with Soap Opera Network. “A lot of people get out of prison, and on a TV show it can happen even easier. People come back from the dead!” the actor noted.
As evidenced by the first episode of “One Life to Live,” life in Llanview has continued long after the soap ended its ABC run in January 2012. No, we don’t mean that the soap has jumped ahead five years as sister soap “All My Children” has done in order to progress its storylines, we mean characters didn’t just walk upstairs to the attic and kept silent and still while the millions of fans mourned their reported last breaths. Scheduled to re-launch on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, the soap is about to take things higher with the opening of Blair’s new night club, Shelter, as the backdrop to getting things moving once more.
Hulu has released its newest video promoting the returns of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” The video, titled “They’re Back,” gives viewers a glimpse into how much edgier, sexier, hotter and bolder each soap now is as they get closer to their online debuts courtesy of The OnLine Network.
On April 14, 2011, ABC sent shockwaves throughout the daytime industry when it announced it had decided to cancel both “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” after 41 and 43 years on the air, respectively. Now two years to the day since that announcement, both soaps are in the process of not only returning to television but also to the world wide web courtesy of Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network. With just two weeks to go before launch, we hope you’re ready for a new kind of soap and a new way to watch soaps.
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.
On Thursday, March 28, when news first broke on the hiring of Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley (“Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWOWW”) on “One Life to Live” in the recurring role of Nikki, Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network noted, “JWOWW got some acting tips from Josh Kelly, who plays con man Cutter Wentworth. Things got out of control after Kelly showed JWOWW how to do a ‘pretend’ slap. After a brief demonstration, Kelly asked JWOWW to slap, and she really did!” That slap is now available for viewing as MTV takes you being the scenes of JWOWW’s first day on the set of the iconic soap. Also included in the video is Kelly discussing “showmances,” where co-stars find romance off-screen.
