Our antenna went up just a tad, when we saw this bit of casting news which could clearly give some meaty story to Andrew Trischitta of One Life to Live, who as Jack Manning definatily has some anger management issues, family issues, and after all he is a “Manning”.

TOLN announced that they have cast actress Alice Callahan to play the role of Kate, who is the summer school teacher for Jack Manning!  Callahan has appeared in several television shows.  Fans will recognize her as ‘Jessica Leitenberg’ from The CW’s teen series  Gossip Girl. Other credits TV include Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Callahan has appeared in several motion pictures including Almost Perfect and  Morning Glory.

So is One Life to Live about to embark on another contemporary social topic that has been in the news over the last few years?  Is Alice tied in to anyone else on the canvas?  We have our thoughts!  What are yours?

SOD says she takes an interest in Jack so it looks like a teacher/student relationship is a possibility.

I could vomit just thinking about this storyline. I hope they don’t go there. It seems to me that they’re just going down a list of social issues in the news, without any regard for staying true to the characters. I’ll keep watching OLTL, but I hate how it’s all sex, partying and drugs. Give me back the show I loved, please, because this isn’t it.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
