One Life to Live and High School Musical fans get ready as Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King)  is set to make his debut in the new season of Dancing with the Stars which kicks-off tomorrow night, Monday September 16th at 8PMEST on ABC!

It’s a dream dance duo come true for Corbin and his partner, Karina Smirnoff.  During a chat with EOnline!, Karina revealed, “We’ve talked about Corbin doing the show for the last four years at least.  They would say, ‘Who would be your dream partner?’ and I’d say Corbin Bleu and explain why. The dream has come true!”  To which Bleu replied, “I always said I didn’t want to do it unless I got her as a partner.  There’s such connection with dance and you have to be able to understand each other’s body and listen and she listens so well.”

Corbin told PEOPLE about the first day of rehearsal.”The first day my thumb kinda popped in and out of its socket and it was swollen. And Karina’s back is all scraped up from me dragging her on the floor on a move.”  Bleu says that Smirnoff “is quite the whip-cracker” and that the pair have a team nickname that reflects how hard they’re been working. “We’ve decided that our team middle name is gonna be ‘One more time,’ ” he says. “Because every single time we finish (the routine), one of us says, ‘No, no, no, one more time!’ ”

As far as sizing up his chance on winning the Mirror Ball Trophy, “I’m athletic, and I know how to move and I understand music. I understand the timing, that’s definitely a battle won already.”

So will you be watching Corbin’s  journey that starts tomorrow? Do you think he stands a good shot at winning the Mirror Ball with Karina Smirnoff?  Weigh-in!

DWS winners depends on how many fans they have lol
The dancing needs to be very good but more than one couple is great, so it still ends up ”who is the most liked with the most fans who will win, even if the couple is not as good as their competition they will win..
So, he has a very good chance of winning on both counts, he is good 🙂 ..

I will be watching but I doubt that ABC will mention OLTL or let CB Mention OLTL due to the issues at hand they will probably be pimping AMC/ GH

Yes, I will be rooting for Corbin. Also for Valerie Harper, the actress from GLEE and Bill the Science Guy. Looking forward to seeing Corbin’s moves. Love that they are having a Broadway actor on the show, hope he gets to dance to Broadway music. I believe he was in Godspell and In The Heights in recent years.

Of all the people that could have represented “One Life to Live” over the years — Kassie DePaiva, David Fumero, Bree Williamson …

They choose HIM?!?

He was excellent dancing on DWTS BUT he was SO obnoxious afterwards quoting lines from his 2006 movie HS Musical & egging his fans/friends on from the audience. A big overblown showoff. I mean, so what, Chris Brown is a great dancer too but still a total jerk!
My props go out to Valerie Harper for being 70 & a cancer survivor & also Jack Osbourne.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
