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

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.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Lieu Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
