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.”

I could definitely be into JPL as the new Lucky Spencer.

Why hasn’t a soap grabbed him yet?

He was so likeable on OLTL.

Lou Piikes

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.

Jeremy

@ 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.

Ellen DeGeneres Signs On To Continue Her Talk Show For Three More Years

After rumors were swirling that Ellen DeGeneres was considering moving on from her highly successful daytime talk show after 16 years, all of that was kiboshed, when earlier this week on Tuesday, Ellen announced herself that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would continue on for three more years through 2022.  DeGeneres inked a new deal to stay put.

In her video announcement to her studio and at-home audience, she expressed: “From the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ phase. It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.”

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
