What is going on these days with all of these former soap stars getting in trouble with the law?  Now you can add former One Life to Live star,  Scott Evans (Ex-Oliver Fish) to the growing list! Evans, who played a fictional cop in Llanview got busted last night for attempting to buy drugs off an LAPD undercover cop!

According to TMZ.com, “Law enforcement sources tell us Evans was arrested Tuesday evening when he tried to score narcotics from an LAPD officer posing as a dealer.  Evans was booked at 6:15PM for attempt to possess a controlled substance … a felony. He bailed out around 12:30AM.  It’s unclear what drug Evans was trying to buy.”

Evans reacted to the bust with a Facebook post early this morning: “Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested.”

So soapers, are you shocked at Evans getting busted?  Weigh-in!

I often wonder what ex-soap stars have been up too once their show goes off the air and now I know. There aren’t that many roles for actors anymore so I imagine it is a tough life to face, then again, welcome to America right now. Too bad some people turn to drugs while others just try to survive each day as best they can.

this is very sad to me

DITTO!!!!

Don’t the police have better things to do than entrap citizens for victimless “crimes”? Waste of taxpayers time and money.

Drugs are bad and I want my tax dollars going for this. Victimless crime? We all end up being victims of drugs.. People get addicted to drugs and then break into homes and steal to support their habits, shoplift from stores and prices go up. They get high and drive and kill others on the road… When drug addicted people get high and they kill, rape and do much damage to others that are not involved in their lives. So I thank the police for entrapping individuals.

I am for saving the lives of the innocent….

Everything you mention they could do and have done on alcohol. More people does those things on alcohol than they do on drugs.

just because “they could do and have done” the same thing on alcohol doesn’t make THIS right.

“well, he’s already robbed a bank…he might as well steal a car too”. ridiculous rationalization.

Bethy I agree. However, I am against the hard addictive stuff such as meth and heroine. All those do is ruin lives.

Some day you will be older and wiser.. one of the few benefits of getting older…

@Tsuds – Apparently I am already older and wiser than you…..One of the benefits of having my own opinion and not caring what others think.

I’m not surprised. Drugs are a big problem in Hollywood as in our country. As much as we may like or admire an actor, we don’t know what they do in their private lives. I never watched OLTL nor am I a Scott Evans fan, but I hope this is a wake-up call for him.

Yes don’t buy drugs from strangers.

I liked the actor and his character on OLTL, but I don’t think its cool to joke about getting arrested.

I Agree…

Poor thing. Come home to NY, baby.

“At least I made it a year before getting arrested.” Does that mean he’s been behaving like this for at least a year. He deserves what he gets.

Teresa he is just a has been goof ball whats he buying drugs with oh yes unemployment check our taxpayer money.

I believe he is referring to living in LA for the last year and the fact that so many show business folks get arrested. I don’t think he meant doing drugs.

Very disappoining 🙁

Disappointing,but it’s not like he is a murdered or anything. There’s worse things he could have done.

That’s unfortunate. I liked him and Kish on OLTL. Hope he can get his life back together soon.

Scott has two movies coming out and is currenty filming the new Selena Gomez film. Hopefully he will get past this and continue to shine in his talent

General Hospital

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.
