A very bad man is coming to Genoa City and it could turn the lives of many of its citizens upside down! Chief among them, Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott)!  Of course, we are talking about the character of former cult leader from the 70’s, Ian Ward as played by Ray Wise!

Wise, is no stranger to devilish roles having played Leland Palmer on Twin Peaks, who was revealed to the the actual murder of his daughter Laura, which was the epicenter of the whole series.   Ray is also known to soap fans for his role as Jamie Rollins on Love of Life!

Wise spoke to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan about his emergence in GC when he debuts on the January 23rd episode of the sudser that will cause trauma and drama for Ian’s son, Dylan and the mother of his child, Nikki!   Here are a few interesting excerpts below!

Ray on why Ian has come to Genoa City:  “I can’t reveal his big secret reason for coming to town — what he really wants — but he certainly hopes to reestablish a relationship with the beautiful Nikki. Once upon a time, she felt a little something for him. He thinks he can override her fears and get that back. He’s a very confident fellow.

Ray on what Ian is doing now that he went to prison for his past crimes as the leader of the New World Commune back in the day:  “He has since become a self-help guru and author who’s now heading an organization known as The Path. He’s very busy passing out business cards and promoting his cause. If you want to find the path you are meant to have, come to one of his seminars!

Didn’t Eric Braeden and Ray Wise both play the part of Robin’s father on HIMYM?

He’s a talented actor and while I’m not a Dylan fan, I think Ray Wise will be very good in this role.

Nikki at one time had love for Ian, she thought she was his one and only (silly girl) when she found out Ian had others, that is when she left the commune and Ian..

So– I think it would be great story if spanks fly between the now older mellower , changed two..

I can’t wait for the story as it pertains to vet character Nikki.

As for Dylan’s part of this story, since he’s still a newcomer to the show (less than a year still), the majority of my interest doesn’t involve Dylan.

Can’t wait to see Victor and him go at it though.

While I could not care less about the whole Dylan storyline (in fact, he can go back to Afghanistan and I won’t miss him!), I am MAJORLY looking forward to the whole, sordid story between the teenaged Nikki and former cult leader, Ian Ward! Ray Wise is a fantastic actor, and his character’s background, including prison time, should be very rich and colorful. I’d like to know that there are still residual feelings between Nikki and Ian (especially someone who was charismatic enough to get people to join a cult and then woo the women into bed!) and see if he can even charm old Victor into believing that he’s a “changed man.”

If the story only contains Nikki, Victor and Ian, I’ll be happy as a lark. If Dylan comes into it, other than “He’s our son…” being mentioned once in a while, it will draaaaag like all the other Dylan stories have so far on the show.

Welcome, Ray Wise! Good-bye Steve Burton (you can leave anytime now, please)!

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
