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.

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.

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

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.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
