Now here is what we are talking about! Clever, Clever  News out today from TVLine.com is that ABC’s hit primetime series, Castle starring former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion is planning a  special episode in homage to Fillion’s daytime roots.

In an episode titled, “One Life to Lose,” Beckett and Castle will delve into the murder of a soap opera scribe. According to  TVLine, ” As they work the case, watch for multiple stars from ABC’s own sudsers to make appearances (though probably not as themselves but fictional thespians). ”  

Also as part of the episode, fans of Fillion’s days as Joey Buchanan on OLTL are said to expect at least one nod in reference to his time on Llanview.  March 21st is the tentative airdate for the soap-related story.

Castle has boasted many a soap star on its guest-star roster including:  A Martinez, Sarah Joy Brown, Melody Thomas Scott  and Rick Hearst.  Castle has also recently been picked for renewal by the network.

So what ABC Daytime stars would you like to see cross paths with Beckett and Castle?  Let us know.

I hope Erika Slezak shows up, since she played Nathan Fillion’s mother on OLTL. That would be a great way to celebrate her 40th anniversary on OLTL.

My vote is for Erika Slezak and Gina Tognoni for sure and maybe Robin Strasser!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
