DC Was Right Again...OLTL Wants GL's Daniel Cosgrove as Joey!





It looks like Daytime Confidential was right again! Last March, just prior to the news of Guiding Light's cancellation being made public, we first told you ABC was salivating over Gina Tognoni and Daniel Cosgrove for the roles of Kelly Cramer and Joey Buchanan, respectively. Carolyn Hinsey has now confirmed One Life to Live is interested in Cosgrove for Joey in this week's New York Daily News.

Additional reporting by Tina Guilford and Melodie Aikels.

Ooh, he actually might work in the role!

I'm cautiously optimistic.

Aren't Joe and Kelly married? I don't know if I can see them as married scince I see them on GL as bro and sis. I might just have to come back to OLTL

If Cosgrove goes to OLTL then so do I.

Kelly and Joey, played by Gina and Daniel would be weird but I prefer Cosgrove paired with a younger actress and not Dorian. Sorry, might not be PC but I don't want my favorite leading man paired with such an older actress.

So, who at OLTL will get pushed to recurring to accommodate all of the new people? Adios Rex, Gigi, John...?

He doesn't work for me as Joey. A recast I'd want is Ric Hearst as Kevin.

Jamie, is it me, or is ABC poaching as many CBS'ers as they can and CBS poaching as many ABC'ers as they can with no rhyme or reason?

This casting war thing is really getting ridiculous. And for Daniel to play the love interest of his former sister on another show. That's just weird...

So, is Gina definitely going to One Life? Or is it still speculation? Or did the deal fall through? Anyone know?

I would LOVE to see him on OLTL as Joey--or as anybody for that matter. I never really watched him on GL (couldn't get into the new way they shot the show), but I thought he was fabulous in his small role on Dirty, Sexy, Money. He reminds me a lot of Nathan Fillion.

He would be amazing as Joey!! DC is so talented and charismatic! It would be weird that he'd be playing a former love interest of Gina T (if she returns), since they were siblings on OLTL. But still, i think he'd be great on OLTL. I'm happy that OLTL has finally realized its time to bring back more Buchanans.

Like Tognoni, Cosgrove really came into his own on GL after being unremarkable on ABC where he was Scott#3 on AMC. He would make a great Joey.
I am completely indifferent to Tognoni returning as Kelly Cramer. The must be somewhere else where she can be better utilized. She will be lost in the shuffle on the canvas at OLTL.

OLTL can get rid of Stacy and John. I'm looking forward to Rexx/Gigi/Sky triangle. I wonder who would be Joey's love interest? Blair, Tea, Marty, Rachel????

I would love to see Gina Tognoni and Daniel Cosgrove as the new Kelly and Joey they would be great, but isn't Kelly married to Kevin why would she be paired with Joey??? I'm just glad they're bring back those two characters but it would be great to see Kevin come back too i miss him.

OLTL sure likes those former Scott Chandlers, don't they?

Jeff Branson (GL's Shayne) would make a great Joey. We know he has great chemistry with Gina...

Why don't Dan Gaithenier come back as Kevin. And Daniel would be great as Joey. Get rid of Stacy, Moe, Noelle, and John to get theses two actors and keep Robin S.

That's great for Daniel, nice to see GL actors getting work bit by bit. I could see Gina returning as Kelly, she's already got her hair back to blonde. If OLTL doesn't work out I could see her on Y&R.
I was thinking Jeff Branson should go to OLTL also, he's so hot and he and Gina have amazing chemistry.

I don't think Jeff will be employed at ABC again.

If Daniel is hired, they had better not take the easy way out and dump Kyle, or Fish, or Sky, or Brody. Get rid of the real problems.

Didn't Daniel and Gina have inappropriate chemistry on GL? I thought that Ellen Wheeler was going to go there, but didn't. But they could be a couple on OLTL now.

Just because Gina and Jeff have it on GL doesn't mean they will have it on OLTL, rember BE/RPG redo on AMC....

LOL Simon!!!
They do have chemistry, that's for sure and last year that chemistry was certainly inappropriate for two actors playing siblings.
I thought Ellen Wheeler was going down the incest route a couple of times myself but thankfully that never happened!

No offense to DanC...but why would I want him as Joey over a rehire of DanG as Kevin...its how some people felt about SD going to ATWT when they dont write for their own vets. Bring DanC that would be great, but only if they also bring back Kevin.

Wally Kurth and Jane Elliot played adulterous lovers on DAYS before going on to play mother and son on GH. Daniel and Gina being paired on OLTL wouldn't be that shocking.

I know nothing of the role but I like DC on GL and if both he and Gina were to jump ship I'd definitely give watching OLTL a shot.

I think Dan would be a great Joey recast. And I hope they re-visit the Dorian/Joey relationship. It was kinda spoken about when NF came back for Asa's memorial.
My major issue is not about a Joey recast BUT with a Kevin recast!!!!!!!!! Dan G who played Kevin last was the best Kevin OLTL has had. Even when Kevin was a big jerk-- Dan made him likeable. He had a wonderful chemistry with Viki, Blair, Jessica, Natalie and Todd. I really hope OLTL rethinks recasting Kevin-- and does what they can to get Dan back. I mean they have had about 1 million actors playing Kevin over the years -- but judging from on line chatter Dan was by far the fan favorite. WHy would they gamble on hiring another bad choice in the role-- when they could bring back the fans #1 choice in the role?

Now they cannot let Robin Strasser go, as this would be a great chance rekindle Joey and Dorian!

Maybe this is why OLTL let Ray, Marcie and Michael leave the show in order to get Joey and Kevin back on screen? I would sleep a lot easier at night if John and Stacy took a powder... Evil
