Great news for Llanview fans!  While many have been commenting that all the actors thus far who have announced that they are participating in the upcoming Prospect Park reboots are from All My Children, well that ends tonight thanks to fan favorite Jerry verDorn!

The Daytime Emmy winner took to his Facebook page to announce he has signed on for the revival of One Life to Live! 

Jerry verDorn stated,  “Hello Everybody. One Life Lives.  And good things come to those who wait.  Or so it is said.  About an hour ago I agreed to be part of the OLTL revival and I’m thrilled to be involved in entertainment history as the show we love moves to other formats. The fans consistent drum beat of support played a large part in Prospect Park never giving up trying to find a solution. And today they announced it to the world.  With the cherry-on-the-top-news that Agnes Nixon has been hired as a consultant! For those who doubted, I don’t blame you as this has never been done before.  For those who never lost hope and never stopped writing and calling, well, good things come to those who wait.  Congratulations to you all. Welcome back to Llanview.  Love, Jerry verDorn.”

Another HUGE get!!!! So important to get one of the Buchanan brothers on board! One down, 20 or so more to go.

This is so unbelievable! A year ago, it was all but dead and buried. And here we are, and there is a glorious light ahead. So, so proud of all this beautiful movement taking place in the right direction! THANK YOU Prospect Park!!!

This is getting more promising with each passing day, may it continue!!! I am glad to see Jerry aka Clint on board. Here is hoping his coming back will help lure Erika Slezak, Robert Woods and Hillary B Smith (although I believe she might be doing another online soap) back as well. I hope all of our beloved actors and actresses, who have not moved on to other shows or endeavors can all come back too, like Trevor St. John (Victor), Rex and Gigi, Roxy, Blair and her boys, Tea and her daughter, Shaun, Destiny and Mathew B, the hunky Ford Brothers, and the Buchanan girls, just to name a few on OLTL. I am also excited about AMC !!!!

I’m hoping ME will head back to Llanview and Natalie & Liam 😉 Todd & Starr are working out nicely in Port Charles, so they can stay with brief pop-ins to visit Blair, Dorian, Vickie, etc.

Mr. Fairman, when you remove the R.I.P.s could you add “Pretty Little Liars” to your list? Other than GH and SOAPnet it is the ONLY ABC/D product I watch. It is an excellent drama featuring many soap actors. Thank you for your consideration.
