Now that they have a small number of core veterans in place (i.e. those over 40 years old), you can be sure that the only new casting news will involve 20 year olds. Ugh. Not liking where this is headed.

Agree with you Brian! I get so annoyed with people complaining about the cast announcements, when the first rebooted episode hasn’t even aired yet. I have a feeling that we are not going to be let down, at all…..

Don’t worry. The vets can hold their own. I’ve always said OLTL has the strongest cast in daytime television. Considering the list of those vets returning it doesn’t appear that has changed.

Wonder how he is supposed to know Mathew and Dani? But it should be interesting seeing more involvement of the Banner again.

‘We’re all in this together’..oops im getting a little carried away here. Somehow that song got stuck in my head. lol. Im wondering if there is a certain time a day you watch the original episodes of AMC & OLTL or is it kinda like On Demand where you can watch on your own time.Wellm I do know you can watch anytime but i wondered if online programing is scheduled anything like network and some cable shows where the new episodes have a regular time slot before you can watch any other time. Not feeling well the last few days… Read more »

He can act very well and is an awesome decent person ..

I am excited about this because he will more than likely bring his fan base with him and boost ratings for OLTL and even AMC. PP is very smart about this and these shows are going to do really well. Do you think he will be in a romance with Dani? Or will there be a quadtrangle with Des/Dani/Matt/Jeffrey?

The constant complaining about every little thing has become annoying as hell, I know everyone has a right to their opinion, but can you give a rest until the damn shows have aired??

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,
