Nathan Fillion reveals he would like OLTL's Bob Woods to play Castle's dad!

Leave it to Nathan Fillion to continue to never forget his soap roots and One Life to Live.  Nathan was the most popular of all the Joey Buchanan’s of Llanview.  Now the star of ABC’s hit primetime drama series, Castle which is about to premiere its fourth season this Monday night on ABC (10PMEST), Fillion had lots to say about his hopes for his on-screen alter-ego in the new season in an interview with AOLtv.com.

But of most interest in the piece was when talking about who Fillion would like to see play Castle’s dad. And, he said he would like it to be Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) of One Life to Live. Apparently, he got all choked up just thinking about the possibility!

Nathan revealed, “There are tons of people I would love to see, but less than famous and more personal for me, I would like to see the guy who played my uncle on my first job, my first soap opera One Life to Live, Bob Woods. He played my uncle Bo [Buchanan]. I’d love to see him come in and play my dad. For me, that’s … personal. That man actually means something to me. He’s the fellow that said, “Hey man, you’ve got to wrap up this soap and move to L.A. You’re gonna do well out there.” He’s the one who sat me down and gave me the courage to pick up and leave New York when they offered me an extended contract.

There are certainly lots of names I could throw out there — I’ve joked around saying Chris Walken would be great, but I doubt Chris Walken is gonna come and do Castle. I think he’s doing alright. But the more personal stuff would be cool.”

That would be great as a short arc but I want Woods to stay with OLTL!

It would be so good on so many levels I hope he makes it true! I think Bob Woods is a wonderful actor and he has the same kind of casual style of acting that Nathan has – they would be a wonderful father son combination. How can we fans help make this happen? Any suggestions?

Love Ya Nathan but I don’t agree & only because then that would mean a possibility of RSW not going on to PP 🙁 and that thought saddens me greatly.

That would be awesome but would love Robert S Woods to stay on One Life To Live as his number 1 job would miss him to much as the comishner of landview and husband of Nora played by Hillary B Smith could never see the show the same way.

Fabulous idea on all sorts of levels!!! And for all those worried about it meaning Bob Woods would leave OLTL, I doubt we’d see Castle’s Dad more then a couple episodes a season, which would likely focus heavily on their relationship, maybe with a great murder investigation bringing them together. I’m sure Bob Woods could do both.

And seems to me Bob has more then earned some prime time air time. I 100% adore the idea, and hope Nathan can make it happen!!

Great idea, I hope it can come to fruition. Bob Woods is an iconic soap star, and I am sure he would be great as Castle’s Dad. It is so incredibly kind of Nathan Fillian to remember his roots and those that helped him get his wings and move on, this only shows what a great man he is, and a fine actor as well. My family adores Castle and to see Bob Woods on there would be super.

I agree 100% as well. I think Nathan Fillion is a cool guy!
It is wonderful to remember his early soap role on OLTL and to think of Bob Woods.
I was very fortunate enough to spend some quality time with Bob on August 13,2011.
I went to the OLTL Fan weekend and we hung out.
Bob is really awesome,fun,generous and considerate guy to hang out with.
He would be fabulous as Castle’s Dad!
Have a great Day!

Soap fans remember them as Adriana Cramer and Cristian Vega on ABC’s One Life to Live, and now real-life duo, Melissa and David Fumero are adding to their family with news this weekend from Melissa that she is pregnant with their second child.

Melissa posted a pic of her with growing baby bump sharing: “Oh yeah, I’m hella pregnant. To be honest, I haven’t felt like posting about it because this pregnancy has been way harder and… I don’t feel that cute? But yesterday I got a really intense massage, an awesome chiropractic adjustment, and my hair feels thicker… so I feel a little bit cute today.”  To which her husband, David commented back to her Instagram post with a humorous: “Wait …. WHAT?!”

The Fumeros are already the proud parents of their 3-year-old son, Enzo who often appears on the couple’s individual Instagram account posts.

Since OLTL, Melissa has gone on to star in the hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine opposite Andy Samberg, while David also guest-starred on the series.  Meanwhile, David has also been recently seen in the series Power.

News of Melissa’s pregnancy comes shortly after NBC renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine for its eight season, even before its upcoming seventh season does not even begin to air till February 6th, 2020.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.
