Daytime Emmy Winner, A Martinez, (Cruz, Santa Barbara) last seen as Ray Montez on One Life to Live,  will be guest starring on Castle with another One Life to Live alum, Nathan Fillion (Ex-Joey) in the episode airing on 10/18 (10-11 pm ET/PT on ABC) — “Anatomy of a Murder.”

Martinez plays the dashing yet dangerous Cesar Calderon, a once notorious drug trafficker (and ardent  fan of Richard Castle’s novels) who has turned his back on his criminal past.

However, when the murder investigation of a beautiful female doctor leads to Calderon’s door, Castle and Beckett must uncover the truth of his relationship with the victim. Can Calderon’s claims of innocence be believed, or did the dead doctor’s demise come at the hands of the very man whose life she had saved?  Stay tuned! 

And in the meantime, should OLTL  bring back Ray Montez to Llanview for Robin Strasser’s Dorian, now that David Vickers is MIA? Let us know your thoughts.

I will CERTAINLY be watching Castle. Thanks for the heads up, Michael! The short answer is YES! Dorian and Ray were HOT together! I am not sure why A was let go from OLTL. From what I understand, he is willing to return. I wish the best to TW on Desperate Housewives but I really am more interested in Dorian/Robin and her story seems to be affected by TW’s constant comings and goings, which is detrimental since OLTL has continued the circle of David and Dorian for the last few years. I would like to watch Dorian in a new romance like what we were getting with Dorian and Ray.

Nathan Fillion and A Martinez in the same place at the same time? I’m already salivating. Yummy.

And to answer your question, YES, A Martinez should return to OLTL as Ray, and be involved in a storyline with Dorian. I’m not even asking for the immediate gratification of a romance, although it would be nice for their history to be acknowledged and their story expanded. They missed some potential there.

OLTL has had success lately with bringing soap vets onto the canvas. Lots of fans would love to see A back, and many will tell you they love Tuc/David but are getting really tired of the same old same old with D&D.

I agree with both of you, D&D will always be, but let A come back.

I do agree with the that Brian. David and Dorian can be in the past tense. II prefef Ray and Dorian to David and Dorian and the constant replay of that pairing. I want TPTB to give Dorian and new romantic partner. I am not interested in David and Dorian.

The above should read I do not agree with that, Brian.

If A Martinez’s Ray Montez returned to romance Strasser’s Dorian, this viewer would return. Thank you for the heads up. I can’t wait to see these two fabulous actors in one episode.
