Van Hansis caught up with We Love Soaps at the Nuke-a-Paloooza Event and revealed that he is working on a new project which is quite the departure from Oakdale’s, Luke Snyder.  Van is working on a horror film called, Occupant! The actor who has been one of As the World Turns most popular characters also chatted about life Post-Oakdale.

Hansis on his upcoming motion picture project: “It’s a horror film in the vein of [Roman] Polanski, that is, it’s a psychological thriller. It’s a lot of fun. It’s a big departure from Luke.  The character is nothing like Luke at all. I’m excited to try something new and I’ve never done a film before. We’re in pre-production now, and the whole process that comes into play is so excited.”

Hansis on life After the World stops turning: “I’m excited about the future.  Especially since they gave us six months notice. They gave us time to make peace with the ending.  I’m very much looking forward to what is next in my life.”

Poor van hansis, he never won a Daytime Emmy despite all the media hype surrounding him. And now he’s not even pre nominated. Oh well, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if he ends up on B&B as a Thomas recast, especially after he double dissed either Ronn Moss or Kyle Lowder by saying he doesn’t know their names (diss number 1) but he’d like to meet one of them bec of their acting clips on the Soup (diss number 2)! Hansis has always come forth as a diva, especially when he’d always look glum and unhappy when he’d lose at the Emmys or when he’d announce that Tom Pelphrey was a nominee. Geez Hansis, can’t you act happy? You are after all an actor.

Are you looking at the same Van Hansis that i am?He is not only a terrific young man but he’s a lovely person in general.And yes, he deserved to win an emmy…his acting is so real you forget you’re watching a character on screen!As a longtime fan of Van and AtWt, i hope he submits a reel for his acting these last months.A diva?, no way.And FYI he’s always so nice to his fans.I think the little green monster is gnawing away at you.!!!! I love Van and apparently you don’t!!!!!

Wow, that was a century ago, so thanks for obsessively referring to it. LOL!

BTW I have written abt other soaps: B&B, Y&R, OLTL specifically.

And I write abt primetime shows like DH, Modern Family and Project Runway.

Everyone does say that the nuke fans are the most psychotic, rabid and delusional that they can’t take any criticism of either or both actors.

Seriously, if you can’t take criticism of your fave actors, you need to thicken your skin.

It was half a century ago, but you’re still using the same old tired argument?

I’m so in love with VAN HANSIS. Van is a very talented actor and a sweet and generous person. Van is wonderful! I love his beautiful portrayal of Luke Snyder and I’m enjoying Luke’s current storyline. I am very happy that VAN is filming a movie and I can’t wait to watch it. Please, Michael Fairman, tell us more about VAN HANSIS in your great site! Thank you!

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
