INTERVIEW: One Life to Live's Josh Kelly on Reprising Cutter, Trusting Prospect Park, JWoww and Movie DealsBy Jillian Bowe on April 16, 2013
Don't mistake Josh Kelly for just another pretty face — though that face is awfully pretty! This talented actor has game, which is why he experienced no hesitation in signing on board for Prospect Park's second attempt to reboot One Life to Live.
Starting April 29 on Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and FX Canada, Kelly will once again be on our screens as fictional Llanview, PA.'s resident bad boy Cutter Wentworth. I caught up with the actor at a recent OLTL set visit.
Kelly served up the Long Island iced tea on Cutter's involvement with Nikki, a bartender at the new Llanview hot spot Shelter. Did I mention she's played by none other than Jersey Shore's JWoww? He also offered up the skinny cocktail on how a movie project he's attached to led to his initial involvement with Prospect Park.
Daytime Confidential: How excited are you to be back at One Life to Live?
Josh Kelly: Really excited.
DC: Were you apprehensive signing back on for the show, given what happened the last time it attempted to resume production?
JK: No. I trust Prospect Park. I really like the company. I'm really glad to be working for this company. DC: is the pace the same with online as it is with broadcast TV?
JK: The pace is about the same. I think its a little easier, actually, because its a half-hour show. It's really less that you have to do. I think it will be more palatable for the audience to have a half-hour show, as opposed to an hour everyday.
DC: What was the ultimate deciding factor that convinced you to step back into the role of Cutter?
JK: I missed the show. I missed the people on the show. I didn't like any of the the pilots I read for this year and I really like being part of the [OLTL] cast; especially in the way that it's been working. They're really encouraging creativity from us. I think it's an opportunity to do smoothing new and cool.
Since news of Prospect Park's plans to reboot One Life to Live and All My Children first began to trickle out, one big question has remained — how would our neighbors to the North watch the sudsers? That question has finally been answered. FX Canada has signed an exclusive, North American deal to air the resurrected soaps!
That's right Canucks, you will be able to catch every scandalous hook-up and over-the-top return from the dead when OLTL and AMC return on April 29. AMC will air every day at noon EST/2 pm PST on the cabler. OLTL will air at 12:30/2:30 PST.
“All My Children and One Life to Live are a unique addition to FX Canada’s slate of provocative and critically-acclaimed dramas,” said Scott Moore, President of Broadcast, Rogers Media. “As the only television channel in North America broadcasting these new series, FX Canada continues its commitment to deliver exclusive, premium content to its viewers.” READ MORE
