I predict I'll once again be in the minority on this one. But what the hell...
Like many others, I have been rather hesitant about embracing A Martinez's new, short term role of Ray Montez, uncle of Langston and new foe of Dorian Lord. There are those viewers who are unfamiliar and/or unaware of Martinez's work although he has been a busy fixture in prime time and daytime since the late 60's (does that man age well or what???!). I think the very first time I saw Martinez was on an episode of The White Shadow and later on The Incredible Hulk; yes, when they originally aired. In fact, Martinez was one of the busiest Latino actors in all of television during the last hurrah of the three network era, guest starring on what seemed to be every prime time show with a time slot and a broadcast signal.

There aren't enough words in the search engine at Dictionary.com to describe how excited I am about A Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo), one half of my all-time favorite soap supercouple (sorry Bo and Hope, you guys are a close, close second! Bring on Roberta to sing "Tonight I Celebrate My Love" and we'll talk!) coming to One Life to Live as Ray Montez.
I know a lot of fans are worried One Life is getting a little too cast heavy but there's always room for one more, especially a Soap God sent down from Mount Soap-O-lympus like Martinez. Now if the dynamic duo that is Frank and Ron can some how lure Marcy Walker (ex-Eden Capwell Castillo, SB; ex-Liza Colby, All My Children) to Llanview, even for just a brief Sweeps storyline, I can die a happy man. Well, only if I can come back to life on a pier in three to five years and have Drake Hogestyn spy me out of the corner of his cocked eye and gasp "J?"
I can't tell you how much fan fic I have written about A and Marcy reuniting. No really, I can't, there are court documents prohibiting it. READ MORE
