Get ready to see some familiar faces return to daytime, er, "anytime" this summer. The Online Network announced former Guiding Light star Ron Raines, along with As The World Turns’ Paolo Seganti and Marnie Schulenburg are joining One Life to Live.
Raines will play Carl Peterson, an enigmatic financial benefactor to Jeffrey (Corbin Bleu). Seganti will slip into the role of Arturo Bandini, a rich patron of the arts. Schulenberg has signed on to play Jo Sullivan, a producer of David’s (Tuc Watkins) new reality series. READ MORE
Former As the World Turns stars Vanessa Ray, Marnie Schulenburg and Meredith Hagner reunited with Jake Silbermann at the Abingdon Theatre, on August 25, for a screening of Silbermann’s film STUFFER. So what have these ATWT stars been up too since the long-running soap went off the air?
Ray has appears in USA Network’s new hit series Suits–the best new series of the summer–as Jenny Griffith. Hagner starred in the cancelled FX series Lights Out and continues to pop up on USA’s Royal Pains. Earlier this year Schulenburg joined Ilene Kristen, Brittany Underwood, Kristen Alderson and Ellen Dolan for a brief run in My Big Gay Italian Wedding.

Several days ago, I posted an entry about the fallout from the death of Dr. Reid Oliver (Eric Sheffer Stevens) on As The World Turns. There were three central ideas in that piece. First, despite the very legitimate complaints that any given fan might have, ATWT is providing great human drama here at the end of its run. Second, Reid’s tragic passing and donation of his heart to Chris (Daniel Cosgrove) encapsulated that goal mainly by thrusting the Hughes’— the show’s core family since its very debut— front and center toward its conclusion. Third, given the soap opera wrapped production months ago, the idea of kicking a dead horse with unrelenting criticism isn’t going to make it win the Kentucky Derby.
I have not budged one iota from any of those positions and I am about to incur the wrath of a whole lot more of you by making what I know will be a very controversial statement to many: I believe that in these final days, executive producer Christopher Goutman has made mostly the right decisions.
