Friday, December 19, 2008 5:23 PM EST | By Scotty Gore



(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Another week, another round of casting tidbits for “One Life to Live.”

Who’s Coming?

  • Crystal Hunt joins the cast of “One Life to Live” on February 6th in the contract role of a stripper named Stacey.

    The 23-year-old actress is best known for portraying Elizabeth “Lizzie” Spaulding on “Guiding Light” from 2003-2006. In 2005 Hunt was both Daytime Emmy and Soap Opera Digest Award nominations. In addition to her work on “GL,” Hunt has appeared in the films “Brooklyn to Manhattan,” “The Derby Stallion,” and “Problem Child 2.” Rumor has it that the new character is related to someone in Llanview. Could Stacey be Talia’s troublesome younger sister that “OLTL” recently issued a casting call for? Only time will tell.

  • Scott Clifton first airs as Schuyler Joplin, the drug abusing son of the late Dr. Joplin, on Friday, January 9th; Clifton began taping December 8th.
  • Brett Claywell, originally cast the role of Schuyler, premieres as a yet unnamed member of the Llanview Police Department sometime in January. It is unclear if the new role will be contract or recurring; a first airdate has yet to be announced.
  • Henry Yuk and Clem H. Cheung portray Yogi and Master, respectively, beginning the week of December 29th and will be tied to David Vickers (Tuc Watkins) return to Llanview as a Buddhist monk.

Ratings Reflection: ‘All My Children’ Ranks Second in Households Season to Date

You may be asking yourself why in the world would we be doing a ratings reflection that highlights ABC's canceled "All My Children" as ranking second in households (amongst all soaps) for the season when the show has already gone off the air with its last episode airing on Friday, September 23 and talk show "The Chew" already replacing the soap in its old timeslot. If I were to tell you that because ABC scheduled the series finale of "AMC" during the first week of the 2011-2012 television season that the soap would remain in the season-to-date rankings until September 2012, would you believe it? You better!
