( — Introducing the latest addition to the cast of “One Life to Live.”

Soap Opera Network can now put a face with the name of the actor cast in the role of James, the younger brother of sleazy film producer Robert Ford. As we first told you yesterday, daytime newcomer Nicholas Robuck has joined the cast in the contract role. He will first air June 9th. Look for James to cross paths with Starr on several occasions, which will ultimately lead to a summer adventure for the pair, among others. And, from the look of his picture, it’s going to be a long, hot summer in Llanview (click here for a larger view).


Sean J. Cullen returns as Dr. Edward Levin on Friday, June 18th, when Jessica shares her fears with him about her altars and the recent attack on Ford.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Llanview? The recent audition script for the dayplayer role of ‘Fawn’ (a hooker) comes into play the week of June 14th, when David tries to cheer up his little brother Matthew, who’s having some girl trouble, by taking him out on the town with the pole dancer and one of her friends.

And “One Life to Live” has released a new casting call for the role of a “Private Investigator.” The scene opens with “Kate” asking the PI if he is looking for her. He tells her that her grandfather hired him to locate her. Kate replies that she had thought her grandpa understood that she just wanted to be left alone. The PI replies that he knows her grandfather, and realizes how considered he was when she stole a car from a dealership and drove off with some boy. Kate states that ditched the boy already. The PI asks if it was before or after she ran the car off the road, and says that he found it abandoned just down the road. Kate confesses that she was involved in an accident but that she’s ok. Relived he tells her that he can take her back to her grandfather then. However, Kate insists on going to her motel room first, much to his reluctance. Kate assures him that it won’t take long, and that, even though he has been working for the family for a long time, she thinks it time they get to know each other a little better. The PI replies that if her grandfather found out, he could kill him. As the scene ends, Kate tells him that he won’t find out unless he hires a PI to track his every more like her grandfather did with her. Remember that the soap frequently changes names in this scripts in an attempt to throw off viewers.

    Soaps Still Set to Shine at This Year’s Daytime Emmys!

    As the popularity of soap operas fell in recent years (shown by decreased ratings and the cancelation of several sudsers, leaving only “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” and “General Hospital” on the air), the Daytime Emmy Awards shifted to keep up: Gone were the beloved clips showcasing the nominated actors’ work and the majority of the show celebrating daytime dramas, in were more moments involving morning, talk, game and cooking shows. And rumor had it that the Emmys would become even less soap-centric as the years went on. But according to the Daytime Emmys’ senior executive director, David Michaels, though this year’s program has not yet been set, he’s sure the ceremony will keep soaps front and center, right where they belong! “The daytime fan base comes from all genres,” he tells Variety. “We have a Facebook page, and it’s not just the soap fans. The games and the talk shows have some pretty rabid fans, too. But there’s no fans like soap fans.”
