Thursday, January 1, 2009 11:35 PM EST | By Scotty Gore

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” casts two new faces to interact with the Llanview High crowd.

With Matthew Buchanan’s big drug storyline about to kick into high gear, “OLTL” has cast a couple of new characters to interact with troubled teen. The first is Jack Rovello, who will portray Justin, a teen who tempts Matthew to head down a long and dangerous path. After introducing himself to Nora and Bo, Justin makes Matthew an offer he can’t refuse.

This marks the second soap role for the 14-year-old Rovello, who appeared as Georgie in a 2003 episode of “All My Children.” Rovello has also guest starred on “Sex in the City and “Ed.” Look for Rovello to make his “OLTL” debut as Justin on January 23rd.

Also coming to “OLTL” is Broadway veteran Charlotte D’Amboise, who first airs as new Llanview High Principal Ms. Dickinson on January 9th. The 44-year-old actress has appeared in a number of Broadway productions, including “Cats,” “Carrie,” “Chicago,” and “Damn Yankees.” Other credits include “The Preacher’s Wife,” “The Kennedy Center Honors,” and “Law & Order.” D’Amboise has been awarded several awards and honors throughout her career, and was nominated for Tony Awards in 1989 and 2007.

“OLTL” has also cast the recurring role of Asher, who will be involved with Matthew and Cole beginning January 8th, although few other details are available concerning the role. And the sudser is in the process of casting Becca, who will be a love interest for Matthew.

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

CONFIRMED: Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo Leaving ‘General Hospital’

On Monday, May 23, three days after news broke that Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks) had been fired by ABC's "General Hospital," Soap Opera Network tweeted that we had exclusively learned that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) would be the next actor leaving the daytime drama series. On Thursday, May 26, just before the long Memorial Day Weekend, the actress confirmed our report when she revealed that her days with the soap were numbered via her Twitter page. Interestingly, the actress has been tweeting up a storm since revealing the news while keeping mum for nearly 3 months on her twitter account (it had previously been crickets since February of this year). Marcil Giovinazzo's confirmation follows months of rumors since she revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood Live back in March that she was on her way out.
