Former Guiding Light favorite Ron Raines (Ex-Alan Spaulding), who just debuted on One Life to Live as the nefarious Carl Peterson, has also joined another stellar cast!

Today, Crystal Chappell’s upcoming new web series Beacon Hill announced that Raines has been added to the cast to play the key role of Senator William Preston!

According to the character description on the Beacon Hill series website, “Senator William Preston  is a longtime Democratic Senator for Massachusetts who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. The Senator believes that blackmail is something you do before breakfast.”  Crystal Chappell will play Ron Raines daughter in Beacon Hill in the role of Claire Preston, thus reuniting these two former GL favorites! 

So, what do you think of the casting of Ron Raines as Senator Preston?  Are you excited to see him join the cast with the likes of Ricky Paull Goldin, John-Paul Lavoisier, Melissa Archer, Louise Sorel, and Sarah Brown too? Comment below!

So excited to see Ron Raines join the cast… it’s shaping up to be an amazing group. Love that Ron and Ricky Paull will reunite to work together on Beacon Hill. Add all the other talent and it will be one heck of a show.

They have not started production yet. from what I read on the official site (just google Beacon Hill web series or go to Crystal’s facebook or twitter page for link) the web series will not air until early 2014. I would love it if I am wrong because I want to see this so right now!!!

thanks Tori! I’ll check it out. Did you watch the pilot for Crystal’s series “The Grove”? I loved it but never saw any new episodes 🙁 Robert Woods (Bo) from OLTL was in it.

Ron Raines is a good solid character who will bring strength and entertainment in his new role of a not-so-good senator. Yes I am looking forward to the new series with Sarah Brown and Melissa Archer also. When is the debut?

This is looking to be really good!!! Love the cast so far!!! Based on the current cast and especially Ron… a great casting of Sara… would be Julie Marie Berman! She looks like she could be Ron’s daughter and JP’s sister and even Crystal’s sister! Will be looking forward to seeing the rest of the casting! It’s a beautiful and talented cast with a great look!

I thought she is Ron’s character daughter in law? maybe I read the website character descriptions wrong. Crystal is amazing with these projects. I am amazed that networks and cable tv is not banging down her door trying to get there hands on these projects. I look forward to watch Ron in this new venture, I admire his work on One Life To Live.
