DC #464: ABC Pimp With a Bad Perm
On today’s ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey, Regan and Eye on Soaps’ Belinda discuss all the crazy casting news at All My Children and General Hospital and the latest on One Life to Live, including:
Susan Lucci is staying with All My Children. Thorsten Kaye is leaving AMC. Beth Ehlers and Brianne Moncrief are out as Taylor and Colby. Chrishell Stause is going on recurring. BethAnn Bonner joins AMC. Luke suggests a role that he thinks Beth Ehlers would be good in.
James Franco joins General Hospital for a limited run. What does this mean for GH and for the soap opera genre in general? Greg Vaughan is out at GH as Jonathan Jackson returns to the role of Lucky Spencer. What will Jackson’s return mean for the character of Lucky as a cop and could the show rewrite Jake’s paternity?
Could Thorsten Kaye be headed for One Life to Live? Jamey shares the latest word he’s hearing. Since General Hospital landed James Franco the DC gang discusses which big names One Life to Live might try to pull in. Suggestions include Ryan Phillippe, Judith Light, Nathan Fillion, Yasmine Bleeth and Chris Evans. Jamey then makes a potentially controversial suggestion for who OLTL needs to bring back, at all costs, if it really wants to stay on the air.
All this and much more on today’s ABC episode of Daytime Confidential.
