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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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… Read more »

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!

‘The View’s’ Whoopi Goldberg Tells Audience to Stop ‘Booing’ Republican Senator Tim Scott

During a bizarre couple of segments of Monday’s episode of The View, Republican presidential candidate, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, was the special guest.

The conversation between the conservative politician and The View co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro took some uncomfortable and tense turns.

At one point, Goldberg posed the question to Scott, as to why the Republican Party was trying to “stop the progression that people are making.” Scott started answering and said that his political party was doing a “fabulous job at making progress” with social issues. Hostin  asked him to elaborate on that point.  It was then, that the senator turned his back to Goldberg, which promoted Whoopi to interject “That was me talking to you …. shall I come next to her?”

Goldberg then stood next to Hostin as Scott continued to face away from the other co-hosts and address the two.  After proving her point, Whoopi went back to her seat a The View table.

Then, production signaled Goldberg to toss to break, but Scott was continue to speak.  So instead of interrupting him, someone else from the production staff walked on camera and told Scott they were going to break.

However, when the show returned, and Ana Navarro asked her question, if the senator thought the ‘Republican Party had gone too far’ in introducing legislature against the LGBTQ+ community, including Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill, plus Floria governor and Republican presidential candidate, Ron DeSantis’ feud with Disney, Scott’s response drew ire from some in the live audience with many booing the guest.

Next, Goldberg shut down the ‘boos” scolding the audience with: “Not here. I’m sorry sir. Do not ‘boo’. This is The View. We accept … we don’t have to believe everything people say, but you cannot “boo” people here, please. You cannot do it.”

Watch the ‘daytime drama’ on The View below, and then let us know what you thought of Tim Scott’s appearance on the ABC daytime talk show via the comment section.

Walt Willey Brings All My Children’s Jackson Montgomery to General Hospital

Look for another legal eagle character from a former ABC soap opera to pop up on General Hospital!

News today out of Soap Opera Digest has that none other than Walt Willey set to reprise his role as All My Children’s Jackson Montgomery on upcoming episodes of GH in July.

Willey played Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) love interest and the Pine Valley lawyer from 1987 through to till ABC’s cancellation of the series back in 2011.  The actor previously crossed-over to another soap opera in 1996, when he played Jack on ABC’s The City.

Taking to his Facebook account, Walt confirmed the news on his appearances on GH: “Hey Folks… Been sitting on this one for a while but now I’ve been given the clearance to announce that “Jackson Montgomery” is visiting Port Charles! I’ll be doing a few episodes of General Hospital, due to air mid July. So excited to reprise my character and see and work with old friends! I’ll keep you posted on any details. “Jackson” in Port Charles…who would have thought it? Let me, and ABC, know what you think about it!”

Could Jack’s sudden arrival in Port Charles have to do with the SEC and the trouble that Carly (Laura Wright) and Drew (Cameron Mathison) find themselves in?   Will AMC fans get to see Cameron Mathison and Willey share scenes together again?  Mathison played Ryan Lavery on the beloved former soap opera … or might Jack go up against Martin Grey in a GH legal battle, so Michael E. Knight and Willey could share scenes together again since their AMC days?

So, excited to see Walt on General Hospital? What do you think brings Jack to Port Charles? Weigh-in below and stay tuned.
