Calling all One Life to Live fans! John-Paul Lavoisier’s sports a new look for the character he plays in the upcoming web series Winterthorne!

The  online soap opera coming in late August from creator Michael Caruso will feature JP in the role of Hugh! Caruso filled On-Air On-Soaps in on a bit of the back-story of the character:  “In the Winterthorne family things are run a little differently. The women choose their husbands, not the other way around. They are basically raised to be what the Winterthorne women will want. Hugh is one of those men, He’s handsome and he knows it, and everyone affiliated with the family always assumed that Miranda (Martha Madison) would choose him.”

Caruso said of working with the talented One Life fan favorite who for eight years played Rex Balsom:  “JP was fantastic because he could have played a very one dimensional character, but I really think that audiences will feel for him.  His character is not a “bad guy” in the traditional sense.  We were all blown away on set by JP.  He’s  hilarious and he’s up for anything.  He’s a very dynamic actor. You can see the wheels turning in his head as the character, and the choices he makes are fascinating to watch. Sonia (our director) had worked with him on OLTL and had nothing but amazing things to say about him and he was someone that I had wanted to work with very early on in the casting process. He was perfect for the role.”

Why hasn’t a soap grabbed him yet?

He was so likeable on OLTL.

Why??? Because there are too many unemployed soaps actors who are just as talented as he. With only 4 soaps left, soap roles are slim to none.

@ Rob – I’d love to see JPL on DAYS or GH. He could be the new Sean D on DAYS or new Lucky on GH. Food for thought.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
