One Life to Live Vet Joe Lando to Play Cassie's Dad on The Secret Circle!
The Secret Circle's soapy connections continue! The CW series already boasts Andrew Miller, the real-life hubby of All My Children and The Young and the Restless alum Eden Riegel as its showrunner, and Days of Our Lives vet Shelley Hennig among its sexy, cast of YA witches. Now comes news that 90's One Life to Live heartthrob Joe Lando has signed on to play the pivotal role of Cassie's (Britt Robertson) father John Blackwell!
According to TV Guide, the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman star—who appeared opposite a pre-True Blood Jessica Tuck as Llanview supercouple Jake and Megan from 1990-92 on OLTL—will make his debut in Episode 15 entitled appropriately "Return." If you've been following the storylines on The Secret Circle and/or are a fan of the teen novels of the same name from Vampire Diaries scribe L.J. Smith, you know Cassie's father "Black John" passed down his dark powers to his daughter. I don't know about anyone else, but I cannot wait to see Lando's Black John face off with Charles Mead (Gale Harold) and Dawn Chamberlain (Natasha Henstridge)!
