HomeTVABCBREAKING NEWS: Ted King IN at One Life to Live! Jillian Bowe November 9, 2010 37 Comments Shut yo mouth! Entertainment Weekly is reporting former General Hospital alum Ted King is heading to One Life To Live! King will play opposite Kassie DePaiva. Said King: We’re creating this together,” King told EW exclusively. “It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up on. When I was originally hired (for GH), it was for a short period of time. I had every attention of going back to primetime. But during that time, I really enjoyed myself with the role – a lot more than I thought.” King will head to Llanview on Jan. 21.

Next to Billy Warlock and Ric Hearst, he is my favorite GH castoff. It looks like Ron C. and co. are planning to keep up the awesomeness into the new year. I eagerly await his arrival. This is a well deserved in your face to Guza, but I will not get into my anger over how Lorenzo and Ted King were treated there, and enjoy the good news.

GET IT TILL YA CAN’T GET IT NO MO’!!! Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 November 10, 2010 Thats It! OLTL is officially the best soap on TV! They have been on fire with some of the best casting lately and storylines. I hope they are teaching the other two ABC soaps that being the “black sheep” isnt so bad!

The OLTL cast is huge, even with the recent losses. Are there more exits to come? Log in to Reply Nat Guy November 10, 2010 Nice casting. He’ll be a good match for Blair. Log in to Reply crafty23 November 10, 2010 I’m glad he’s coming back to daytime, and on one of the hottest shows to boot! GH wasted him and TK w/KD’s Blair? I’m all in! It’s the best news I’ve heard all day. :bigsmile: Log in to Reply giogio November 10, 2010 NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – I LOVE HIM – Oh My Godness.

Log in to Reply Daniel Pearce November 10, 2010 Knowing OLTL, it’ll be some brand new character…sigh… we already got too many of those… That being said….. GET IT BLAIR!!!!!! Log in to Reply mrsa1107 November 10, 2010 This is awesome news for ABC & OLTL!!! I think its sad that AMC didnt grab him to fill th evoid left by TK. I think this is awesome for OLTL– I think Kassie & Ted would sizzle. Ted would even work well with Susan, Robin S, Gina T, Melissa A, Bree, Florenzia, and Terri C A leading man in this age group is something OLTL has been lacking— besides John & Todd– OLTL is lacking men in their lat 30s to late 40s. I would like to see Blair & Marty in a triangle with Ted Kings character- and NOT Todd Who will Ted be playing???????? A new role or a recast?? Could he be playing one of his other ABC roles on OLTL– like Danny or Lorenzo? Log in to Reply doodleynoodle November 10, 2010 This is news has caused me to make a very important decision in my life… GH…the trial separation is over…I want a D-I-V-O-R-C-E. Ted King is BACK! They treated him like dog-doodie at GH…OLTL writers aren’t IDIOTS…I CANNOT WAIT to see what they have in store for this man. He and the OLTL writers will make the Sonny & Jason Happy Hour look like the whacked-out hack job it is. I’m too excited!! Yay!! Yay!! Yay!! Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin November 10, 2010 ACK no…marty needs to get her own man and leave poor Blair and Nat alone! Log in to Reply Regan Cellura November 10, 2010 OMG… dying! Best news! Guess that answers a question Mel and I discussed on the podcast soon to post! Log in to Reply watchingallday November 10, 2010 doodleynoodle, your post is so full of win, its not even funny. All I can say is ditto! Log in to Reply WickedThoughts November 10, 2010 I hate Marty….She’s such an annoying and boring character. Now that her equally annoying son is off to sing sing she needs to go too…..But double YAY that Ted King will be gracing our screens….I hope they make him a good guy and not another psycho…I want someone hot for Blair but I really want to see her happy again. Log in to Reply cokeyloveshersoaps November 10, 2010 Doodleynoodle,i agree with your whole post i love Ted King i cant wait im so excited to see him on my screen again :p :p Log in to Reply BizzieBee November 10, 2010 Oh lord in heaven, why do I feel all my CarLo naughty-hot chem in full effect all of a sudden? I miss Tamara Braun and Ted King’s inconvenient (for Maurice Benard, at least) chemstry. Those were some good times!!! Ah well, I wish him and OLTL the best. Log in to Reply sassysdreams November 10, 2010 Excellent news!! Love Ted King and love Kassie (Blair) and this pairing should be HOT!!! Please let him not be a psycho. Blair needs a chance to be happy for a change! Stay away from Marty! She needs her medical license revoked and to be fired as soon as possible!!! Maybe she can move to whatever city her son’s prison is in so we don’t have to see her anymore! Log in to Reply gush900 November 10, 2010 I love me my marty Log in to Reply sassysdreams November 10, 2010 Too bad this announcement isn’t on the GH page as well! Big loss for GH and huge gain for OLTL!! Log in to Reply miamibeachguy November 10, 2010 This is AWESOME news! OLTL is such an excellent show now. I hope its ratings go up and up. I do hope they don’t make Ted King’s character into a psycho or something like they did with Matt Walton’s Eli. Blair deserves a good guy for a change and one who stays that way! Log in to Reply keanna November 10, 2010 HA! HA! HA! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: I am sure Guza and GH are seeing red. Also the fact that EW broke the news love it. BIG GET FOR OLTL!!!! With Ted and Kassie, Blair and Luis will be the next OLTL supercouple!!!! Look’s like Frank and Ron C. are going for the gusto. Log in to Reply Cyberologist November 10, 2010 I don’t watch this show but Kim brought me in peeking in their door so I will definitely check out Ted. I liked him as Lorenzo Alcazar didn’t care for how he exited GH at the end of his run they wrote him out of character a.k.a trashed him. I agree that this is GH’s loss but I’m glad he’s not going back under the pen of Guza so this is great news for this fan. My Elizabeth / Lorenzo fantasy was long gone only to live forever in fan fiction. Log in to Reply maven November 10, 2010 This is great news. I only caught Ted King on GH towards the end of his time there. I loved Alcazar and Diego’s strained father/son relationship and always wished GH would have explored it more. Log in to Reply Maura227 November 10, 2010 wow! Way to go OLTL!! OLTL is kicking a$$ and taking names.. seriously.. they may have a large cast but it is by FAR the best soap on tv right now. I was always a GH’er but I’m totally on the oltl ship at this point. Hmm maybe more shows should be filming in NYC… La La land isn’t working out so well for the others. I love Ted King.. can’t wait to see him opposite Trevor St.John.. hotness! go OLTL! Log in to Reply Cory Martin November 10, 2010 While I worry about the size of OLTL’s cast, Ted King is fantastic and a huge casting coup. Hopefully, his entrance will also mean some necessary shedding of dead weight. That said, I’m thrilled that he’s targeted specifically for Blair; Blair/Kassie DePaiva deserves a hot, front-burner story. I loved her with Eli, but the show saw fit to run him and Matt Walton so far off the rails, any hope of redemption was eviscerated. I hope, however, that TK’s character has enough shadiness to be interesting enough for Blair; she’s far too dynamic for anything cookie-cutter. Log in to Reply appleridge November 10, 2010 This is Great and Im not worried cause OLTL has the most balance out of all the ABC soaps. it will be fine. Log in to Reply ABCJunky73 November 10, 2010 OMG! This is to good to be true!! :love: I wonder what his character will be like? Will he be a good guy, bad guy or a recast of an old character? All I know is Ted King was hot on GH and OLTL scored big nabbing him! All I have to say to GH is: HA-HA!!!! >) Log in to Reply aramis270 November 10, 2010 Wow, they did it ? Really ? I am sooooo happy ! Ted King has always been one of my top three favorite actors of GH and I was so mad when Guza’s pathetic writing forced him to leave (as well as Ric Hearst and Sarah Brown …). Loved him with Skye and I can’t wait to see him as Blair’s love interest. Kassie and Ted are going to be sparky together. I can’t wait to see that ! I just hope that Ted will not play a “villain” for a change (even if Lorenzo was such a sexy and lovable villain) so that we won’t have the feeling to see Luis or Lorenzo Take 2 but his new character. Considering how bright OLTL has been recently, I am not worried. Congrats OLTL you rock ! GH (alias the Sonny/Dante and Brenda show) you just … suck … Log in to Reply petitejolie November 14, 2010 Ted King as Kevin or maybe Cord… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
