Those of you who missed and loved Oliver Fish on One Life to Live, and the work of Scott Evans, were concerned over recent developments where Evans last year was arrested for possession of a controlled substance after he tried to buy some off an undercover cop in Los Angeles!

However there is good news today from TMZ.com that the case against Evans has been dropped mainly because of Evans good behavior and attending 60 Narcotics Anonymous meetings.  According to the report, “Evans had struck a plea deal with prosecutors back in January in which he agreed to plead guilty — and in exchange he would have to complete 60 NA meetings.  Well, Evans came through — and earlier this week he proved he completed his obligation in just 6 short months. In exchange, the judge dismissed the case. “

So what do you think of the news on Evans’ case being dropped?  Would you love to see Scott get an opportunity to return to the new One Life to Live?

I wish him well but he is a grown man who knew what he was doing and shouldve known better…i do not concern myself with foolish people who get involved with drugs, especially when they know its wrong, seen what happens to others including possible death and yet think nothing bad will happen to them so they do it anyway! The drugs out there isnt the problem…its the idiots who take them. He got off too easy…these people will most often make future attempts. Its happen in my family and ended tragically. I may sound harsh but ive experienced it…most of these people will never learn no matter how hard you teach them drugs are wrong. Some might…but still not enough!

You sound like a stuck up prude…..Just because someone does something that you don’t agree with doesn’t make them less of a person…..It’s wrong to judge other people, but you have no problem with that…Sorry you had such a screwed up life because of drugs, but that doesn’t mean everyone who uses drugs is bad…

I didnt take drugs…maybe you need glasses…i said a family member did…how many times do we read someone gets arrested or dies from drugs…100s of times…the message is clearly out there that drugs are wrong and dangerous…my relative died from drugs…yet others hear and read this everyday and they still do it anyway which makes them an idiot…i never used illegal drugs nor have broken the law…and you call be a prude…why because im not foolish to break the law or do drugs(i love my life and dont intend to waste it)…you call me a prude because im a law abiding citizen who lives a clean drug free life? Why you are the biggest idiot around. P.S i didnt say he was a bad person..i might even like him if i met him…i said he’s an idiot for being a grown man who should know better and YOU should too.

He didn’t get off easy, he got the standard ‘punishment’ for a first time offender. Counseling/therapy, community service, good behavior for a length of time = charges dropped.

Just because something happened in your family – does not mean it will happen that way for everyone.

Sure what happened to my family wont happen to everyone but is taking drugs worth that risk when there is still a chance it could?

I never loved nor missed him nor that douche Brett Claywell (who dissed daytime when he didn’t get an Emmy nomination in 2009).

Both are losers in my opinion.

So we are praising a guy who bought drugs off a undercover cop? Sorry he should have done time like everyone else .

And what would he likely be doing right now if he hadn’t gotten busted??…..Exactly.

I loved the Kish story, but I’m not feeling a whole lotta love for Scott – I do wish him well though.

Like I said on another comment: He didn’t get off easy, he got the standard ‘punishment’ for a first time offender. Counseling/therapy, community service, good behavior for a length of time = charges dropped. Like most everyone else.

Good I’d like to see him put the drugs behind him and get back to acting. Then he can again be a positive gay role-model.

Loved him on OLTL – hope he stays away from the drugs. Good Luck to him.

I think he should be given a chance and be hired back. I think he made a mistake that he didn’t think through and took his punishment like a man. He could have plead mot guilty, done time in jail, and came out worse. Be strong Scott. Go down the right road, too many have died way too young because they were too weak. Wish you the best.

I am thrilled for him and very proud, I know it wasn’t easy! We have all made mistakes, it is what we learn from them and how we move forward that builds charector!

Good to hear. Hopefully he learned his lesson. And hey, if Robert Downey Jr. can go from multiple arrests and stints in rehabs to being one of Hollywod’s top paid actors, Scott definitely deserves a second chance.

And I’d love to see Kish again someday!

Scott played one of the most beloved characters on OLTL. It was a sad day for fans when he and his partner comprising “KISH” were let go. I personally would be very happy to see him on nuOLTL. (Perhaps his brother Chris from the Fantastic 4, Captain America, and the Avengers could put in a good word for him!) I wish him the very best.

Glad to hear he was able to comply with the court’s orders. Now he can get on with his life. Would LOVE to see KISH stop by Llanview for a visit, or longer! 🙂

I enjoyed the Kish storyline, but there are many actors/characters I’d prefer to have back before revisiting this one. It played out and we had closure. I’d rather see John McBain, Jessica Buchanan, Roxy Balsom, Kelly Cramer, Tina Lord, Rex (no Gigi) and on and on and on…

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

So, which lesbian actress should play CW’s LGBT super hero? Share your suggestions and thoughts in the comment section below.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
