Great news if you are a fan of Nate and Dani and the Ford Brothers of Llanview.  Word today is that talented newcomer, Lenny Platt (Nate Salinger) has been upped to contract status with ABC’s One Life to Live. With John Wesley Shipp set to debut as The Ford boys father, Eddie,  things are going to really take off story wise for Platt and his on-screen family.

In a recent interview with On-Air On-Soaps along with Nic Robuck (James) and David Gregory (Ford), Platt shared his enthusiasm for his all of his co-stars. “First of all, working with Kelley Missal (Dani) is fantastic!  She is incredibly talented and it was easy to hit the ground running with her.  I do want to add that I think I am fortunate to work with two other guys that I have so much chemistry with.  We are playing brothers, and so it’s important for us to get along. It’s important for us to work well on camera, but we hang out outside of work, too. Since we get along well, that can only enhance our performance and that will show on camera, and that bond will be stronger.  I think what is also important to point out is that I have met some wacky actors in my day, and to meet two guys where we see eye to eye professionally and socially, is great! “

I think that we could a pairing of Jessica and Bobby down the road, since her baby will be his.

I think they would have more chemisty than Jessica and Brody.

Don’t understand how one person complaining about the Fords makes up the entire majority. More people like the Fords that is why they are putting them all on contract. Really how hard is it going to be to fall in love with those boys. They have good background stories, and they are interesting to watch.

Ebony, I could not agree with you more! I am really looking forward to the father coming to town. The arrival of the Ford family reminds me of when the Buchanan family came to town. Who can forget Asa Parachuting in when he first arrived!

I TOTALLY AGREE. AND I GOTTA SAY. LENNY PLATT IS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE OF NATE SALINGER. AND KELLY MISSAL IS AWESOME. I WISH I COULD MEET HER ONE DAY. SHE’S DEFINITELY MY FAVORITE.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

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.”

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.
