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.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
