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.

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!

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
