More casting news out of Shreveport, Louisiana where writer and producer Emily Hummel has been busy assembling an amazing array of daytime stars for her first web series venture, The Team!  As previously announced, Crystal Chappell (Payton) and Tristan Rogers (Seneca)  have signed on to play major roles in the dramatic web series, but now comes word of two more  signings and the hunk factor just went up!

One Life to Live’s David Gregory (Ex-Ford) will play the role of Asher.   What exactly is an Asher?  He is described as, “A former actor turned con-man that plays a unique role in Seneca’s Team.  Asher is a charming playboy that likes to focus on enjoying life.  He is very talented in impersonating others and at improv acting.  These skills, along with his experience in running cons, make him an important piece of Seneca’s team.”

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Winsor Harmon (Thorne), a Louisiana native himself , will have a guest-star role as Denny.  Denny is said to be  a covert operative for the CIA that finds himself in need of the team’s help.

Principal photography will begin in early June with a fall launch for the series on the docket! 

So what do you think of the interesting cast of Chappell, Rogers, Gregory and Harmon?  Let us know! We love seeing soap star mash-ups and this series has certainly got something for anyone who has followed different daytime soaps!

Mark F,
Mark F,

I’m glad to see Winsor Harmon get a role outside of Bold and Beautiful, since Brad Bell for some reason, refuses to write anything of substance for Thorne!!!

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”

Judith Light Receives Her Star On The Hollywood Walk of Fame

This week on Thursday, Judith Light was honored with the 2,673rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony attended by many of her beloved friends, longtime business associates who were instrumental in her career, and former or current castmates, and of course, her husband, Robert Desiderio  (Ex-Steve Piermont, OLTL).

The two-time Daytime Emmy winner for her powerhouse performance as Karen Wolek on One Life to Live, and a two-time Tony Award winner for her work in Other Desert Cities and The Assembled Parties was given her star on the legendary walk on Hollywood Blvd for her incredibly successful and enduring career in television, movies and the theatre.

Speaking to the crowd in honor of Judith’s big day was her Ugly Betty co-star, America Ferrera as well as Transparent creator, Jill Soloway. Broadway producer Daryl Roth, Light’s Transparent co-stars: Amy Landecker, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Duplass and Gaby Hoffman, David Steinberg, and former Ugly Betty co-star Ana Ortiz, were all on-hand.  In addition, Judith’s longtime friend and former on-screen One Life to Live sister, Brynn Thayer (Ex-Jenny Wolek) attended to celebrate this moment with Judith.

In her speech, Light thanked everyone along the way at all the shows and stages she has appeared on and more including: One Life to Live, Who’s the Boss? ABC and of course, her current series Transparent, as well as producer Ryan Murphy with whom she first worked with as Marilyn Miglin in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, a role which earned Judith a Primetime Emmy nomination.  Light will next be seen in Murphy’s Netflix series, The Politician with Bette Midler and Ben Platt.

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”
