While we can’t have our One Life to Live back, but we can now see some of our all-time favorites on an upcoming episode of ABC’s hit series Castle!

News broke Friday night courtesy of Kassie DePaiva and Nathan Fillion on Twitter!  First, DePaiva noted that she and none other than Tuc Watkins were currently in production on an episode of Castle.  Fillion followed up with a tweet stating: “22 years ago, I was 22 years old, and working my ass off with these two. Thanks for doing this, you guys.”  In addition, Darlene Vogel who played Dr. Lanie McGiver in Llanview also appears in the upcoming episode, and she also tweeted about the One Life reunion with a photo (see pic right) and related:  “Coming soon #OneLifetoLive #reunion #Castle @KassieDePaiva @tucwatkins @NathanFillion”

DePaiva, of course played Llanview’s infamous Blair Cramer Manning, while Watkins played bubbling ex-con man David Vickers, and Fillion played Erika Slezak’s (Ex-Vikiu) son, Joey Buchanan!

TV Line also related some intel on the Castle episode in which the Llanview foursome appear noting: “Ahough unconfirmed by ABC, it appears that Watkins and DePaiva will appear in Episode 10, “Witness for the Prosecution” as Roger and Joanna Mathis, marrieds who get pulled into a murder investigation. Roger worked as a cameraman for the deceased, while Joanna turns out to be a fan of Castle’s books. (Vogel’s role is unclear at this time.)”

So what do you think of Nathan Fillion welcoming Kassie, Tuc and Darlene to Castle? Excited to hear the news? Will you be checking out the episode? Comment below!

I may also MBmomof3. I’m not sure since I don’t trust anything done by the alphabet people. Still, it’s great to know all of them working again. I’m so sorry Kassie DePaiva isn’t going to be on Days anymore. It’s such a loss to the show. I have really missed seeing Tuc Watkins. He’s great.

Oh, how I miss our beloved One Life to Live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bogart and Bergman would always have Paris. We will always have Llanview.

I continue to be impressed with how Nathan Fillion and the people at Castle remember and respect Daytime actors and find guest spots for many of them. I was thinking of the soap opera-themed show they did a few years back with Rebecca Budig and Cameron Mathison. I know alot of Y&R actors have done Castle, and A Martinez once guest starred on it as well. I love Tuc Watkins and Kassie DePaiva and I’m looking forward to seeing them on Castle.

I will have to also admit, that I will break my ABC boycott and watch this one episode! Will be nice to see these guys all together, even though they are not playing our beloved characters from OLTL! I wished Nathan Fillion could pull this off more often with other OLTL characters. Vicki, Dorian, Bo! Oh how I miss OLTL!

Thank you, for your direct post, Nancy. I still feel so shamefaced for my misunderstanding. So, I think you have forgiven me? I hope?
I am glad we will both enjoy seeing these beloved actors.

perhaps a spike in the ratings for this particular episode might resonate through the halls of ABCD daytime?

That is great they are together again, and it’s great that Kassie got another big gig. She deserves a better character than Eve.

Love Castle…goes back to Nathan Fillion being in some of my all-time favorite shows Firefly, Serenity, and Buffy Vampire Slayer…and bringing some of the in-references and actors from these series into Castle. And then there was his stint as boy-toy to Dorian Lord. And speaking of the soaps. If you look at all the guests over the years on IMBD you have tons from current (Jake/Jason& Hayden) and past GH as well as other soaps…probably an ABC perk. But even Nikki, Ray Wise, Stepphie, Adam and others I don’t know of because I’m not as up-to-date on all soap characters/actors like many MF commenters are. And then there’s Susan Sullivan who plays Castle’s mom.

I am ecstatic. I miss OLTL more than I can say. I would give anything to bring it back. I also like Castle very much, & of course love Nathan. He was gr8 on OLTL, & even more so on Castle. I love that he is bringing some of his former castmates to appear on his show. I love seeing all of them acting together again. Thank u Nathan & Castle. Keep up the awesome work on the show. Looking forward 2 more soap opera stars guest appearing on this amazing show.

Great! Looking forward to it! Castle is a favorite in my household, and this brings an extra special element to it. Kudos to Nathan Fillion for NEVER forgetting his soap opera roots, as he so often has soap stars on his wonderful show. I look forward to the OLTL reunion with Cassie, Tuc and Nathan!

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

I want to thank everybody in the book, My mom and dad my brother General Hospital,Sue black all my friends and of course my wife Paula.

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?

So, will there be a spot for some seat-jumping, horror-filled, adventure type of series when the nominations are revealed for the 47th annual Daytime Emmys?  (As fans know, the Daytime Emmys originally scheduled for June have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  NATAS has said that is currently exploring options for this year as how to and when they might present the awards.  As for when the nominations will be announced, we will bring you the updated information once it has become available as judging is currently underway.)

Now below, check out episode 3 of Evil Touch and Death Squad and then let us know via the comment section below what you thought of them.
