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!

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.

B&B’s Matthew Atkinson On Gaining Custody of Douglas: “Thomas Just Wants to Take His Rightful Place”

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) wants to be more of an active father to his son, Douglas (Django Ferri), who has been living with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton).

When confronted with this news, Hope is not too happy, because she could lose being mother to the little boy, who she has come to love as her own.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.
