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.

She would fit that role well, plus she is very talented.

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 Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his 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. 

HarperCollins

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.”
