Two reports have surfaced this morning on the status of One Life’s evil Mitch Laurence, Roscoe Born.  First in today’s Soapgeist column from TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco.  Soapgeist reports that insiders say that Born was fired, and Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Born only returned only for a limited run and there is plenty more story for Mitch in the new year.  An ABC spokesperson told On-Air On-Soaps that  “Born is a heavy part of February sweeps and is involved in major story that will affect the lives of  many of the citizens of Llanview coming up in the New Year.”

I would like to see Roscoe Born return to Days Of Our Lives as Trent Robbins. Melanie would be shocked to see her evil father was still alive.


Ok, so Roscoe Born just returned to “One Life to Live” in November of 2009! I read the soap magazine and internet board spoilers for the latest scoop on the show! It said nothing of the sort of him leaving “One Life to Live” anytime soon! They said that if anything, he would be around for the February Sweeps Period so the storyline could help boost up the ratings, and I truly hope that the end is not near! Roscoe is a terrific actor, and yet no one wants to sign him to a long term contract! No one else could possibly portray the role of “Mitch Laurence” like he does. Roscoe has plenty of on screen chemistry with just about every actor, or character on the show right now. Plus “One Life to Live” needs a super evil villain on the show right now, just like the other soaps have! I hope the powers that be have not let him go as of yet! I have the ABC Soaps In Depth Magazine dated January 25, 2010 and I have read it thoroughly already. I believe what I read about was that Roscoe had signed a short term contract in October of 2009, maybe for about 3 months! As January 2010 approached us, and the story of the return of “Mitch Laurence” was just getting started, I read in the magazines, and on the message boards that the powers that be had extended his stay through February Sweeps, and possibly beyond that point!


I would love to see Roscoe back on Days too. I was very upset when they let him go after only having him there for a couple or three months.

With Carly now being revealed as Melanie’s mother, it would be a perfect time to resurrect Trent and have them face off with each other plus it would certainly open up an interesting S/L for Mel as she thinks she’s beginning a new life with Philip

I hate the way Days AND OLTL use Roscoe. They use him to boost their sagging ratings and then dump him after he brings in so many of us fans just to watch him. Days has done the same thing for YEARS with Joe Mascolo as Stefano too.

I hope they both demand a lot of money to boost the ratings and they should get it! These shows are totally boring with Stefano and/or Mitch or whatever character Roscoe Born plays on any show! He is the most awesome bad boy/villian ever on daytime and I can’t believe he hasn’t won an Emmy in all these years

I’ll stop watching OLTL again as soon as he/Mitch are gone this time b/c it’s boring and holds zero interest for me whenever Roscoe and Mitch are not around. Same with Days when they let Roscoe go and if they have any sense they will hire him back ASAP as Trent


I would like to see Roscoe Born carry on with One Life To Live as he brings a breath of fresh of air into the show. He plays the character very richly and brings in great humor and wit and seems to have great chemistry with whomever he is paired with. This doesn’t happen very often with most actors. I hope the producers of One Life To Live realise what a valuable asset Roscoe Born is to the show and signs him for beyond summer. If not, I’ll love to see him in prime time tv and try his luck and hopefully he’ll find success in form or another.

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!

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
