One Life to Live’s Josh Kelly (Cutter) has landed a new gig! The talented and sexy actor will co-star in a new television pilot for Lifetime, the same cabler that brought us Devious Maids!

According to Deadline.com just a bit ago, “Josh is set to co-star opposite Shiri Appleby in Lifetime’s drama pilot Unreal inspired by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s award-winning independent short Sequin Raze. Marti Noxon and Shapiro wrote Unreal, which goes behind the scenes of a hit competition dating show to follow the experiences of Rachel (Appleby), a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with (and among) the contestants to heighten the drama. Kelly, will play Jeremy, a cameraman on the  dating show who also is Rachel’s ex-boyfriend. He previously did an arc on Lifetime’s Army Wives and just wrapped Universal’s Recon.”

So what do you think if Josh’s new role?  Would you like to see it go to series so we see more of Josh?  Comment below!

Does this mean he’s leaving “One Live to Live”?

yeah… just what I was thinking… have the OLTL actors been told to go get another job?

This means one life to live will not be back. it will be cancelled.

We don’t know that for sure yet..

If there is a God, he will never be back to bore us with his nightmarishly bad acting.

I never really cared for him either.

Can you blame him if he did leave…OLTL…imo…isnt coming back but even if it does what actor would want to wait for something that isnt confirmed when there are other acting opportunities out there…i hope the show comes back and all the actors return but if not ill continue to support some of the others still with us!

Jim, my sentiments exactly!!!! Just recently, I discussed this with my husband, and said, that while I would be sad to see any of the actors leave OLTL, I would not blame anyone involved with the show if they went and found other work, because the bottom line is, everyone has to do what is best for them, and not working is rarely ever good for anyone. I hope OLTL comes back (fingers crossed), because I truly do enjoy the show, and whether it does or not, I wish all of the actors, and all of those behind the scenes, much good luck.

The PP contracts have a clause that allows the actors to pursue other offers/projects.
Guess they just will have to double task .. (do both ..

Kelly

Those contracts were only 1 year long and they are expiring soon. I doubt OLTL will be back. They haven’t even started production on AMC and according to “reliable sources,” that was to have started last month. The whole thing is just pathetic.

Good for him. He needs to work until OLTL comes back.

If OLTL doesn’t com back, I’d be happy to see him in something else. I DO want him on OLTL, (and I want the show back on the air pronto) but an actor’s got to go where the work is. I wish him all the best.

I don’t blame him for pursuing other avenues of the entertainment field. It would be nice if One Life to Live would return but with prospect part at the helm of the ship I too would make sure I had a Life Preserver on.
His role on OLTL isn’t terribly demanding, I think he’s fine in the role but it could easily be filled by a competent actor. This is assuming of course that the show even comes back, I think we are all hopeful that it will….

Josh seems like a great guy; very responsive with his fans on social media…so I wish him the best. We have no way of knowing if OLTL will be coming back and this might turn out to be a great opportunity for him. If OLTL does come back, and/or this Lifetime series gets picked up…I personally would like to see him on both…if it’s doable. Good luck Josh!

He can do both..
PP contracts allows them to pursue other projects while under contract with them..
How they work it out is not my business or problem LOL but they can also do other things/projects while with PP ..
I think he will be doing both .. 🙂

Same here… I enjoy him on OLTL, but understand he has to make a living, and who knows whether OLTL will return.

Wish him all the best, and just hope to see him somewhere soon.

I think we have seen the last of “One Live to Live”! I hope I am proven wrong.

Marti Noxon producing? Thats one step removed from Joss Whedon. Josh working with a Joss disciple? Swoon.

OLTL is gone for good. Time to move on. The actors know that. Now its time for the fans, myself included, to accept it.

He was never a favorite of mine at all on OLTL.. Didn’t care for his character…Couldn’t be trusted and was a bit of a low life. Sneaky..

Barbara t loves One life to live

Hes not a favorite of mine either, Hated him with Natalie, I agree with you Susan he was and is a low life.

Fran

good for him , ABC/PP pissing contest had destroyed any hope of OLTL to return all they wanted was AMC anyway

christy
christy

you know, if OLTL is gone for good, what is the point of the lawsuit, except to kiss your money goodbye! I mean what does it matter if a character died (off screen on GH, which we all know means they could always turn up alive!), cuz PP wasn’t using them and if OLTL is gone for good, PP won’t be using them…. so it seems moot.

Ted Olson

With Prospect Park not issuing any statements, keeping everything completely shrouded in dark mystery, not communicating at all with fans, I am so sorry to say I too am doubtful that either OLTL or AMC will even be back. Not one actor from AMC has tweeted or released any comment about receiving a new script for a show that was supposedly set to go back “into production” for October 21st. I sincerely and honestly
hope that my feelings are wrong.

The Young and the Restless, and returning guest star on today’s episode of Days of our Lives, Greg Rikaart (Kevin, Y&R and Leo, DAYS) has posted a new update in his battle with the coronavirus. The good news is Greg is on the mend!

In his message, Rikaart shared: “I’m doing fantastic, easily like 95 percent better than I was the last time I made one of these messages. The only thing is, I still have a little bit of a lingering cough and I guess I have to work on rebuilding my strength and my energy a bit.  But feeling really good, stronger, and better every day, and wanted to let you all know, first and foremost.

And secondly, I wanted to thank you all for the incredibly kind and generous messages of support you sent my way which really lifted my spirits at a time when they needed to be lifted, ‘cause there was a scary couple of days there.”

Michael Fairman TV sends our thoughts and to ‘get well soon’ to Greg and for soap fans make sure to catch him on today’s April Fools episode of DAYS, where there are plenty of “Leo-isms” to go around!

EMPIRE’s Final Season Cut Short Due To COVID-19; Series Finale Now Set For April 21

Will we now ever know just how the lives of Empire’s Lucious  (Terrence Howard) and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and their dysfunctional family will resolve now that the series has had to scrap two of their planned episodes in their final season?  The sixth and final season was scheduled to run for a total of 20 episodes.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

That means, as first announced during last night’s episode of Empire via voice-over: “Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of ‘Empire,’”  that reveal let viewers of Empire know there was change in plans.”  Now, the shortened season and series finale end on FOX on April 21st.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.

Come April 21st, there still may be more Empire in our future, if  FOX executives decide to greenlight a potential spinoff headlined Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon; that first came to light earlier this year in January as being in heavy discussions.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
