Erika Slezak, Vincent Irizarry and Thorsten Kaye Discuss What's to Come With AMC and OLTL Relaunch on The ViewBy Jillian Bowe on April 25, 2013
TOLN soap stars Erika Slezak, Vincent Irizarry and Thorsten Kaye stopped by The View today to chat with the ladies about All My Children and One Life To Live being revived and brought back online April 29. The actors revealed to the audience what they can expect next Monday with the new format.
Anglophiles who are fans of the wildly popular British soap Coronation Street can finally get their “Corrie” fix online! Hulu has landed the exclusive rights to the world's longest-running soap, which has a huge following globally including celebs like, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Snoop Dogg and Piers Morgan.
When dishing about the soap, Hopkins said:
Life isn’t worth living if I miss an episode of Coronation Street.
Those who are Hulu and Hulu Plus subscribers will have instant access to 11 episodes from the current season, along with two bonus Christmas special episodes. Check out an exclusive peek after the jump! READ MORE
It looks as if Snoop Dogg helped pull in some extra PR for One Life to Live. ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel included a clip from Snoop Dogg's visit to OLTL in his Jimmy Kimmel Live! monologue. Watch the segment after the jump.
The Doggfather Returns. Look for Snoop D-Oh-Double-G to make his return to trip to Llanview, PA on Feb. 24. Word is, Snoop Dogg appeared on Fraternity Row, the sudser Bo Buchanan (Robert S. Woods) once produced, before heading out to Cali and finding A-list success as a rapper.
Wouldn't it be hot if One Life to Live created a 13-episode, seven-minute web soap spinoff featuring Snoop? The guy has more than proven his love for the genre, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to convince him to headline his own limited-run sudser. Perhaps Snoop's record company would split the production costs with ABC Daytime, since it would give them a chance to promote his new CD Malice in Wonderland ? Heck, why not just name the sudser after the record? READ MORE
What's the deal, yo? Is the Doggfather trying to step out on Frank and Ron? Snoop Dogg, who has made several appearances on America's best soap opera, ABC Daytime's One Life to Live, is now reportedly angling to make a cameo on British sudser Coronation Street, according to The Sun newspaper!
When I'm in Britain I love to eat Indian food and chill in my hotel room and watch Coronation Street. I've done guest roles in shows in the US. If Coronation Street want me to make a cameo then, cool, let's do it. Maybe I could just play myself doing a concert in Manchester and I could come into the pub for lunch. I've been to Manchester lots of times. I think Coronation Street is to Manchester what the Statue Of Liberty is to New York."
Snoop may never get the opportunity to appear on his fave, Manchester-based sudser, however since he is still trying to be allowed back into the country, following some Mary Jane-related ish at Heathrow in 2006. First Will Smith wants a gig on East Enders, now Snoop is trying become a Corrie, what is it about these British soaps?! READ MORE
