“One Life” has released a new casting call, this time for the role of “Agent Gillespie.” The scene opens with “Chris Fisher” telling FBI agents that the boys will be coming home soon, once they (the feds) learn how to trace a call. “Gillespie” tells him that GPS device in the boys’ cell phones have been disabled. Chris wondered how they accomplished that, to which Gillespie replies that they must have had some prior experience with that sort of thing. He goes on to say that they have their equipment set up to try and trace and record any calls the boys may make. Chris, getting upset, asks what happens if they don’t call. As the scene ends, Gillespie says that he isn’t sure why they haven’t called yet. However, when he does Chris needs to keep them on the line. That way the call can be recorded and checked for background noises, which could yield clues to their whereabouts.
Here is more information about the casting call released last month for “Nurse Cogswell.” The scene opens with the nurse telling “Robin Monroe” that she doesn’t know where her husband went. When Robin asks about her daughter, she responds that she didn’t see her. Worried, Robin comments that they both said that they would be there when she woke up. Nurse Cogswell tells her not to worry, and that she is certain they’ll be right back since they know she is waiting on them. Getting hostile, Robin tells her that she wants to call her husband, and orders the nurse to bring her a pone when she learns there is not already one in the room. The nurse responds that, per Dr. Jeffreys’ orders, she is not to be disturbed. Robin says that it is too late for that, however the nurse remains adamant that she cannot disobey the doctor’s orders. Fuming, Robin tells her she wants to speak with the doctor herself. However, she tells Robin that unfortunately he had to leave as well. Robin asks why everyone seems to be gone. The nurse tells her she will try to reach the doctor and ask him when he will be returning, and that he may know when her husband will be coming back as well, but that for now she needs her rest.
She leaves the room and encounters Dr. Jeffreys in the hallway. She relays Robin’s request to the doctor, who says that he doesn’t know where her husband is, and tells her to not give her a phone under any circumstances. Even so, Nurse Cogswell reminds him that Robin is getting stronger and even more determined to see her family. Dr. Jeffreys insists that she is not to contact them yet. The nurse replies that she does not understand what is going on, however the doctor reminds her that her job is simply to carry out his orders. Furthermore he instructs her that there is a very good reason why “Mrs. Monroe” is not ready for visitors yet. The nurse points out how frustrated she is becoming. The doctor tells her to give Robin a sedative and keep her calm, to which the nurse says she will do her best. As the scene ends, Doctor Jeffreys says that, as soon as he is done with her, Robin can see anyone she wants to.
And there are rumors that “OLTL” is casting “Eddie,” who is described as in his “40’s, early 50’s, underneath his hot, handsome, sexy, charming exterior lies an extremely violent and abusive nature. Heavily recurring role starts in October.”
