Take heart TNT er VNT fans. I'm hearing Trevor St. John (Victor) will in fact make some kind of a return appearance to One Life to Live before the show goes off the ABC airwaves! I have no deets on when or how Todd's (Roger Howarth) brother and Tea's embryo daddy—who was gunned down in his living room earlier this year—will reappear in Llanview (Ghostly? In the flesh? As the figment of someone's imagination?), but I expect it will be epic!
Things are starting to take shape casting-wise for Prospect Park's version of One Life To Live. Florencia Lozano, Tuc Watkins, Shenell Edmonds and Josh Kelly have all signed on to continue with the series when it moves to The Online Network. The actors follow Erika Slezak, Kassie DePaiva, Michael Easton, Ted King, Melissa Archer, Kelley Missal, Sean Ringgold, Andrew Trischitta and Jerry VerDorn, who all previously signed up.
One Life to Live’s Barret Helms, Ted King, Kelley Missal and Florencia Lozano came together at King’s Evening With the Delgado Family during the One Life to Live Fan Club Weekend. The off screen reunion was held at the Newark Liberty Intentional Airport Marriott on August 13. See more photos after the jump! READ MORE
Wishful Casting: One Life to Live's Florencia Lozano as Paul's Loca Ex-Wife Isabella Braña on Young and Restless!By Jamey Giddens on May 27, 2011
Nothing like micro-blogging to get the creative juices flowing! Daytime Confidential reader/podcast listener @Aleana24 asked me on Twitter what I thought of Crystal Chappell as a possible recast for Diane Jenkins, and while I wasn't feeling that idea (My dream Diane Jenkins has always been Nancy Lee Grahn!), it did cause this random thought to jump into my ADHD brain. What if Florencia Lozano (Tea, One Life to Live) joined The Young and the Restless as Paul Williams' (Doug Davidson) mentally unstable ex-wife Isabella? Rumor has it a SORAS'ed Ricky Williams (Paul and Isabella's son) will be making his way to Genoa City this summer. I say his muy loca madre should follow suit.
When we last left Isabella (then played by a pre-Desperate Housewives Eva Longoria) she was about to slice and dice Paul's true love Cricket Blair (Lauralee Bell) in a bathtub. Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc), who had hired Isabella to keep Cricket and Paul apart in the first place, managed to save the blonde barrister and Izzy was shipped off to the funny farm, never to be heard from again. Wouldn't it be fun to watch Michael and Paul have to contend with an out-on-the-loose and seemingly-lucid Isabella, recalling memories of their ugly feud?
Imagine a steamy, erotic quad with Isabella/Michael/Lauren/Paul? Or maybe Detective Ronan Malloy (Jeff Branson) could "frisk" Isabella, initially at the behest of his mother Nina (Tricia Cast) and her BFF Cricket? They'd want to make sure Isabella was in fact sane and seemly, but they wouldn't count on things getting down right steamy between the hunky cop with the Harlequin romance novel name and the woman who almost butchered the Bug in the tub! I know, why not throw in All My Children's Jordi Vilasuso as Isabella's brother Alejandro, who just so happens to be Ronan's new partner!
Then there's Rafe (Yani Gellman). We still don't know much about the gay lawyer's backstory. What if he's Isabella's son from a teen romance with Sharon's (Sharon Case) new farmer pal Sam (Sean Patrick Flanery)? How would Rafe's long lost dad react when he learns what Sharon's ex-hubby Adam (Michael Muhney) did to the kid he never even knew existed?
Whaddya you guys think? Watch a clip of Eva Longoria as Y&R's Isabella after the jump, then sound off in the comments!
All My Todds kicks off this May Sweeps on One Life to Live and the Two Mr. Mannings' leading ladies are sounding off in this week's issue of Soap Opera Digest. While Kassie DePaiva (Blair) is pumped about the "endless possibilities for the story", with Roger Howarth coming back, Florencia Lozano (Tea) is excited that current Todd Trevor St. John will be, well...excited!
"I think it's fantastic," she says. "Trevor does well when he's challenged. It's one of those things where if he doesn't have someone fun to play with, he gets bored and we don't want to see him bored. We like to see him excited. And Roger, he plays it so fantasically, so I'm like, 'Yah!' I love it." READ MORE
