OLTL's Ron Carlivati addresses Todd Manning situation!

One Life to Live’s head writer, Ron Carlivati addressed the ongoing rumors and reports if a Todd Manning switcheroo might be in play that could in turn bring the original Todd Manning, Roger Howarth back to the Llanview canvas. Carlivati did admit that their have been multiple on-screen teases.

Carlivati hinted to Soap Opera Digest the following,  “We know that Todd has a different face and that’s an established part of the story. We’re playing on that history and use it in the mystery that we started to tell with Blair and Tomas. The savvy viewer will notice. So it opens up a lot of questions and possibilities. There is definitely an element of the mystery that is connected to the way Todd used to look.”

Now, add to that that it appears from some circulating reports that Trevor St. John’s (Current Todd) contract may be up for renewal in April, what could this all mean?

So would you like to see Roger back as Todd and Trevor to stay as another character? Or, would you like Trevor to be Todd and this is all just a red-herring by the show to make you think that Roger Howarth is coming back? Let us know.

I’ve been waiting 7 years for Roger to return to OLTL. I also believe he is in fact returning & will probably be seen in the next few months. May sweeps? Welcome Home Roger!

Trevor’s ‘Todd’ actually offends me. Todd was such a remarkable character and he is now unrecognizable. Please, for the love of the show, bring Roger back as Todd Manning as soon as possible!!!!!!

I was very excited to see the orig. Todd (RH) come back to Llanview! I do love TSJ but I am partial to the orig.. I am really hoping that RH’s Todd is the real one. TSJ did not renew his contract~ and I am hoping there isn’t yet another twist that would prove that neither of them is the real Todd. I also can’t wait till Andrea Evans return in Sept. to reprise Tina and the orig. Cord will be back!! At least OLTL is not bringing every dead char. back to life just for the end Date on… Read more »

If TSJ was frat boy 1, he’d have gone off to jail with Zack & Powell, end of story. Yeah, he’s made the character his own alright, but Todd Manning he’ll never be.

Please never bring RH back. I was watching when he quit. He dissed all his fans and the character Todd. Now that he is out of a job Todd doesn’t look so bad. Keep him away. I will be disgusted if that ungrateful boor comes back.

My point exactly Vicki H., they haven’t seen R’s Todd Manning, if they did they would love R’s protrayal (sp?) of him. Obviously they know not what they speak!!!

Girl, you haven’t seen what Todd can really be like. Trevor doesn’t have a clue how to be Todd Manning, RH made the role and only HE can play it. Once you have watched RH in this role then you will wonder What The Heck , Trevor is sooo not Todd Manning, he doesn’t know the history, the boy can not act his way out of a paper bag! Roger Rules, and he rules that role. TSJ, give me a freaking break!!!

Okay, Roger DID NOT hate the character of Todd. Where do you guys come up with this stuff? Yeah, uh-huh, he hated playing the character so much that he understood the character to a T.O.D.D. Really, stating that he hated a character he CREATED and understood like no other, unless you have an exact quote from Roger himself or proof of him saying such a thing, that remark is truly unnecessary and in fact, slanderous. So I apologize, but to those of us who understand the character of Todd from the get-go, his incarnation, his love for Blair, his complexities,… Read more »

Hold on a second with the name calling! The soap press was hot with stories about Howarth’s “Bad boy behavior” during his time on OLTL. Some reports even indicated that his fellow actors were not fond of working with him. I remember those stories very well.

vicki H.
Guest

And the lies keep coming. Is that why the co-stars he worked with at the time want him back on OLTL? I have PROOF if you want to read for yourself. Some of you can’t tell the difference between the actor & the characters.

Chip
Guest

No, I am NOT “making up lies about a real person.” The articles that I read in the soap press CLEARLY indicated that Howarth was often “difficult” and not well-liked by some of his co-stars. One actress even said she likes St. John much better because at least he doesn’t mind touching her, unlike the former Todd (Howarth).

The reason I started to watch OLTL was because of the current Todd Manning ( Trevor) He make the show so interesting. Before Trevor, I thought the show was boring. I hope they keep the current Todd. Maybe the writer could have both Todd on the show as brothers.

To be honest, I’m sick of the charcter of Todd. PERIOD! I couldn’t care less about either one of them and wish they would both vanish into the sunset! If I had to make a choice, I would prefer TSJ because he has played the character much longer. I no longer see RH as Todd because he has been away from the character too long. And the whole “changing faces” thing just won’t get it with me because OLTL already has so many “stupid” storylines, that would just be yet another one that would be so “over the top” it… Read more »

Trevor IS Todd. He has made the role his own, and his Todd is a much more layered character. Howarth walked away from the role because he didn’t like the character. Now that St John has to some extent humanized Todd, it’s not right to bring the original actor back. We watch these shows because we invest in the characters. If a good story can be told with both actors on the canvas, so be it. But don’t turn St John’s version of Todd into a “seat warmer” until Howarth decided to come back.

Sunny
Guest

RH walked away from the role when they tried to make Todd into a romantic lead and floated the idea of hooking him up with Marty. While TSJ has done a great job, he and the writers have turned Todd into a conceited, self-absorbed asshat who thinks he has no culpability in all the evil things he has done.
I want RH to come back, but I do think that TSJ should stick around.

Some can’t understand the difference. TSJ is fine, but not as Todd. He has totally wiped out everything there was to the character & made him an ordinary soap character, you know like the dozen other bad boys of daytime. I want TODD back & only Roger could do that.

I hated to see Howarth leave OLTL back when, but now that I’ve watched TSJ this long, I do NOT want RH back as Todd.

If they’ve got the money to waste on RH to add him to the cast [and I suspect they don’t], that’s OK. I just really do not want another switch.

Miss Sandy you are absolutely on the money ,honey! Like you I have watch this show since before the Todd character began. Roger H had this side of him that was dark and sexy at the same time. Roger made this into a person that you wanted to hate so much but could not because he had this gentle vulnerable side that you just felt so sorry for him and for gave him all his transgression. And then bam he would do something else so vile and destructive and you would not see it coming sometimes. And was sexy doing… Read more »

Trevor St. John is a brilliant actor and does a great job playing the role of Todd Manning. Years ago, there were many reports of Roger Howarth’s “bad boy behavior” on the set of OLTL. Some even indicated that his fellow actors were not very fond of him. I have been a OLTL fan for many years and I will be most unhappy if St. John is booted in favor of Howarth. (If TSJ chooses to leave, that’s a different story…) We all know that soaps regularly rewrite history, but in the years that TSJ has been walking in Todd’s… Read more »

I was & look what happened there? If ABC wants RH back & he agrees it doesn’t matter what you or I saw happen. I also saw Jack as a baby before Dani was conceived.

Vicki, FYI, yes, I have watched OLTL since its premiere back in the 60’s…and yes, some of the rewrites of history have been jarring, like how many times can Victor Lord die. BUT just as much as YOU want Howarth back, some loyal fans DO NOT WANT HIM BACK as Todd. We are perfectly happy with Mr. St. John.

I’ve been watching since Sadie worked at the hospital, around 68-69. There’s just as many LOYAL OLTL fans who have continued to watch OLTL over the years who want RH back. Are we in some kind of contest here? You spoke of insulting your intelligence, that’s what I responded too. I don’t care if you like RH or not. Not everyone does. Just like NOT EVERYONE likes Mr St. John.

Agreed, vicki H! Don’t know why some folks just can’t live and let live. Some of us are HAPPIER with RH in the role of Todd. To us, he is STILL Todd Manning. TSJ is a fine actor, but he’s not MY favorite Todd. Too many reasons as to why he doesn’t work for me to get into here. Bottom line, TSJ’s Todd works for others, fine, great for them. But it doesn’t work for me, never has, and that’s NOT a crime. It’s an opinion, and others don’t have to agree.

I hope Roger Howarth does not come back. I have watched One Life to live as song as it has been on the air, and I never liked Todd until Trevor St. James took over the part. Howarth was such a one-dimensional actor. I can’t imagine why anyone woul dthink his return woul dhelp the show.

Despite the fact, that this block of writing needs paragraphs, I think this was a good read. I too like Todd for the heinous things he’s done. Nothing’s more entertaining than Todd doing something completely evil. But I also loved the guilt and anguish he felt after he did those things. I miss how he would speak to the audience with a look or a sigh. I miss the monologues. He used to speak to the audience a lot all by himself with tons of words that gave an insight to who he was. Todd knew himelf. He was self-actualized.… Read more »

I agree with others to keep the current Todd, but I would LOVE to see the old Todd back. I also think… Read more »

I like Trevor St John as an actor, and his portrayal of Todd Manning. But I’m getting worried that the writers have taken a sudden turn in the way they’re writing his character — he’s getting mean & violent again; I liked it when he was happy with Tea, and getting to know Danni. He was also very funny when he got drunk with Vimal at the bar. I remember the other actor, who originally played Todd, because I watched the show back then. But I think a storyline with two Todds would be a bit bizarre. Hope TSJ &… Read more »

Agreed. They just did the same thing on GH when they kicked GV to the curb in favor of JJ as the Original Cowboy, Lucky Spencer. Fans were outraged, but it more so had to do with HOW it was all handled behind the scenes. I don’t think that OLTL has any intention of getting rid of TSJ. If he chooses to leave on his own accord, that’s one thing. Rumors had been abound in regards to that for months, long before RH and Todd talk surfaced, so I don’t see this show in particular just chucking him altogether in… Read more »

I’m all for RH to return if it helps lure loyal viewers. I was upset that he left the show several times before and wasn’t loyal. Since then, I have grown to love TSJ in the role. I don’t want him to be replaced. I trust the writers can fit both gifted actors on the canvas. Start the fireworks.

While I agree that Roger Howarth is the BEST Todd Manning, Trevor St.John has grown on me,and has added a more likeable quality to Todd. Had Roger come back years ago, I would have been ecstatic, but I would hate to see Trevor leave now. I also don’t think that Roger is really into the Todd role. He has left the show time and time again. What is to stop him from leaving again? He will just disappoint Todd Manning fans again.

Like most posters, I say there is room for both. The “Dead Man Walking”episodes with tsj were mesmerizing. That’s when I really started accepting him as NuTodd. However, noone playes DarkTodd like Howarth. I think Roger Howarth would make a wonderful Barnabas Collins if DS were stilll around, anyway getting off subject. I always wanted to see RH go up against Tony Geary too, so GH with Howarth…well there’s a thought. I guess it is obvious I love the actor’s work. Thanks for reading

Roger Howarth is, was, and always will be the only Todd Manning. I have no issue with TSJ beyond the role of Todd. I’d have no problem with him staying as some other character. It would actually open up a world of story. But Todd he will never be. He’s ‘A’ Todd, not ‘THE’ Todd.

100% correct! The Man is on his way and I just cannot wait. THE TODD. THE REAL THING!!!

You’re right when you said TSJ is far from boring, He’s beyond boring. He took an edgy complex charater and made him into wimp! There’s a reason why RH won an emmy for his portrayal of the REAL TODD MANNING! There’s no real debt to TSJ’s Todd. He plays him like a chump. You tube Todd Manning 345. It’s a scene with Todd and Marty. RH shows us why Todd is best thing to happen to OLTL! If you still can’t see it, then forget you!

Roger Howarth is a good actor but Trevor St. John brings something different to Todd Manning. You want to like him and hate him at the same time. As much as I liked Roger Howarth, I don’t think he could ever make you feel sorry for him. It took a little while for the nu-Todd to grow on me but I hope he stays. .

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
