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.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
