"Castle's" One Life to Lose episode – Preview Photo Gallery!


In a very special homage to Nathan Fillion’s beginnings as Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live, his hit primetime series Castle has written and produced a very soapalicious episode.  As we previously announced at On-Air On-Soaps the episode title is One Life to Lose!

The set up is that Castle and Beckett will deal with a murder that was committed on the set of fictional soap opera Temptation Lane.  Apparently, the head scribe has been murdered! During their investigation, Castle and Beckett discover that behind the scenes of a soap is just as wild and wholly as the faux soap itself.  The stellar cast list includes: Former Y&R and GH star, Corbin Bernsen, All My Children’s Rebecca Budig and Cameron Mathison, and Jane Seymour, known best for her work in Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.

Here is a bit more of what we do know: Bernsen plays Lance Buchanan, a rugged self-assured veteran actor on Temptation Lane. Budig is Mandy Branson the gorgeous young diva lead actress and Mathison plays Vince Bowers, director of “TL”.  And, Jane Seymour is the mother of the murder victim. 

Castle’s One Life to Lose soap spectacular will air Monday night March 21st at 10PM on ABC.  Now you can view the preview photo gallery from the episode below. Remember, to see more pics in the slideshow hit the NEXT GROUP button to the right of the + symbol, or just let the slideshow play itself.

I’m really excited for the soap-themed episode of Castle, but I think they should have included at least one OLTL star in the episode.


too bad there’s no OLTL actors in the episode…the addition of Mathison and Budig make me want to skip my fav show 🙁


The episode is called One Life to Lose. Nathan Fillion was on One Life to Live. Yet, not a single actor from One Life to Live is featured on this Castle episode. Did Brian Frons cast this episode???????


What a wasted opportunity. Robin strasser should have been the jane seymore role. And why not give erika slezak a role. Its het 40th anniversary. I dont want to tune. I cant stand ryan or greenky. Too overexposed and not enough talent.


When I heard about this special soap themed episode, I was so
excited to see who would be on it. I thought for sure since Nathan
was from OLTL, they would include OLTL actors on the episode.
Well, then I heard who was going to be on it and I thought oh no,
not one OLTL actor! To me, this is just wrong! Of all the actors
on OLTL surely some should have been cast! I was very
disappointed to see Cameron and Rebecca on this episode.
Corbin Bernsen is fine. Yes, I ‘ll still watch this episode of
Castle. I haven’t missed one yet! But, it’s so disappointing to
know who is on the show and who they passed by that should have
been on!


I haven’t seen it, but I would be more inclined to if they put some of the great ATWT actors on.How about Van Hansis, Liz Hubbard, Larry Bryggman , Trent Dawson,Eileen Fulton, Don Hastings….these are actors who really know how to act!


I’m so glad that Rebecca Budig is in this episode of Castle because I have always thought that she should be seen on primetime shows more often. She’s way too good to be stuck on daytime only. As for Cameron, I like him and don’t mind that he’s on the episode. In fact, I don’t care one way or the other that they didn’t use any actors form OLTL. I’m just excited to see what looks to be quite a funny parody of soaps. And from the looks of the previews, this episode is going to be very entertaining. I, for one, can’t wait to see it! I hope that it leads to more primetime gigs for Rebecca. She’s a natural!


I was first excited when I heard about the plot but when I heard that Mathison and Budig were chosen to appear, I lost interest.

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
