News for the week of 18-Feb-2013

Roger Howarth (Todd) returns to OLTL for the Prospect Park spring launch. Charming child actor Patrick Gibbons (Sam) will also join up.

Kassie DePaiva (Blair), who’s not been used nearly enough on GH cross-overs, is beside herself at the prospect of returning to OLTL in any capacity. She enthused about visiting the new studio and seeing all the activity.

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) submitted herself for the Daytime Emmy pre-nominations—on her dime and with only the last two OLTL time-stamped episodes to choose scenes for from that show. As a warning (from her website), DePaiva said that she may be one of only a few OLTL actors on that ballot, because of having to pay to play. “For my GH supporting submissions I picked a beautifully written scene where I tell Todd [that] Hope and Cole are dead. I doubt I'll get a nod there either but I was proud of the work and I just wanted OLTL to be represented. OLTL was rockin’ when it was cancelled. But it will be rockin’ again in the very near future.”

Ted King (ex-Tomas) landed a comedy pilot, Alpha House, with Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, AMC) and John Goodman. Written by Garry Trudeau (Doonesbury) and produced by Amazon Studio, Alpha House is set in D.C. and follows the hijinks of certain senators. King met with Prospect Park for the possibility of returning, “couldn’t reach a deal, but we left doors open.”

AMC will begin filming first, for two weeks, in the new Stamford, CT studio later this month. Then OLTL will use the studio for five weeks before AMC takes over for five weeks, for a total of about 17 weeks.

Wildest recast rumor ever: Paul Anthony Stewart (ex-Danny Santos, GL) as Todd.

With Josh Kelly (Cutter) back on OLTL for the online reboot, fans of veteran actress Tonja Walker (ex-Alex, Cutter’s mom) are clamoring for her return as well. Sign this petition if you agree.
