Kelley Missal who wowed soap audiences with her portrayal of Dani Manning in the reboot of Prospect Park’s One Life to Live will be seen in this coming Wednesday’s episode of the hit NBC drama series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit where she will play a young woman who is an alleged rape victim of a pro basketball star!  The series is touting this episode entitled, “American Disgrace” as a ripped-from-the-headlines story that will air on October 1st at 9PMET/8PMCT!

Former Another World star Henry Simmons plays the basketball player Shakir “The Shark” Wilkens.  Shakir is in trouble with the law when Missal’s character of Carla Cannon informs reporters she was sexually assaulted!

In story, when more women come forward, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Detective Carisi disagree on the authenticity of each woman’s story, and Barba (Raul Esparza) takes a shaky case to court.  Elsewhere while working on the case, Rollins (Kelli Giddish, Ex-AMC) travels to her former precinct in Atlanta, where ex-colleagues bring up old memories.

Watch a promo featuring Missal from Law & Order SVU after the jump!  Then let us know if you will be checking out Kelley in her guest-star turn …  and if you would like to see her appear on another daytime soap!  If so, which one?

I’ll be watching! She’s so talented. I would love to see her on OLTL again–when ABC brings the show back–as they should!

Louisa OLTL will never come back to ABC, it is to late now. All the actors have moved on. ABC made a huge mistake, in cancelling OLTL. I hope ABC chokes on it.

Kelley is a wonderful actress. and deserves much success what ever she does. I would love to see Kelley on The Young and The Restless as the new Abby Newman. This Abby is a horrible actress. Kelley would make a great Abby Newman.

I agree, she would make a great Abby Newman on Y&R. She would also be a good Kristina on GH

I too, would love to see Kelley on GH as Christina. She’d be perfect for the role. I can see her having brilliant scenes with Nancy and Maurice. I loved her on the OLTL reboot, but I’m assuming she’s an East Coast actress…come GH, bring Christina back, and make Kelley an offer! She’s a brilliant choice.

Not sure if this was mentioned on any of the previous posts but Lenny Platt (Kelly’s ex-boyfriend, Nate, from OLTL) has a role on How To Get Away With Murder. Always liked him too!

Hello Larry
Hello Larry

Kelley was so great on OLTL and it’s a shame we couldn’t see her progress on there.

She was great on that episode of SVU, I hope to see her land a spot on a primetime series or comeback to the soaps. She would be perfect for the new Kristina on GH.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV! Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
