Austin Peck IN at One Life to Live!




The casting merry-go-round at ABC is working once again with a former Days of Our Lives and As The World Turns actor getting on for the ride. According to Soap Opera Digest, Austin Peck is joining the cast of One Life to Live in a new role. Peck begins filming at One Life to Live on January 31. No word on when his first airdate will be, but check out what he had to say about the character he will portray after the jump!

In a lot of ways, it's a compliment that they feel I can play this character. I don't know what kind of legs this character will have; hopefully, he'll have strong ones. It all depends on how they write him and what I do with what they give me. No matter what, I am going to do my best to bring it alive and have fun.

Will we see Peck mix it up with his former As The World Turns screen partner Terri Conn, who now plays Aubrey on OLTL? Only time will tell.

He and Ted King are both actors that would be good against GT (Kelly) not so much Cutter. She is best against strong actors. The same can be said for Cassie D (Blair). Otherwise the actors get eaten up. ....Wow OLTL is really stacking the deck with talented actors. I hope they keep up the great writing

Good for Austin But I am kind of sick OLTL hiring people to play characters with no ties to any families.

If he's in, I hate to know who's out. But yay for him! I always liked him...he is like a hot version of Jim Carrey.

Rumor has it that David Fumero (Cristian) is out. Austin Peck would be taking his place in a new role.

Could he be playing JOEY??? Cause this other actor is kinda young in the role. Joey should be in his mid to late 30s. Austin is like 38 so age wise it would work. Or if they keep this young Joey-- maybe he could play Kevin??

Congratulations to Austin Peck! He's a good actor. I wonder what character he's playing. Hopefully, he won't be a recast Kevin Buchanan. I really like Dan Gauthier and wish that he were back on contract as Kevin.

I'm a bit concerned as to how the show will make room for his character. Since Brittany Underwood is leaving, will this mean less Robert Ford?

Good actor? Well he was better on ATWT than on Days where he sucked big ole lemons. I used to cringe when he was on the air.

Well I just started watching OLTL again yesterday in hot anticipation of RH returning and Austin Peck coming on only gives me ANOTHER reason to watch! Absolutely adore AP and oddly enough I was just wondering to myself a few days ago WHY another show hadn't snatched him up yet!

This is awesome! Wouldn't it be funny if they cast him as a recast of Cord? Since he was a recast of Brad Snyder on ATWT who was also played first by John Loprieno who also played Cord. I doubt this is the case but just thought it was kinda funny. I have no idea who is going to play but it does seem like they will be getting rid of someone else to make room for him. Maybe John will leave Natalie or Brody will leave Jessica and they will need a new man.

RH as in Roger Howarth? I haven't heard any rumors in the last 6 months of him coming back. I wish he would.

He makes it sound like he'll be a villain since he's only played heroes in the past. Could be interesting. As long as he's not another Ford. So did he really improve on ATWT? Because I saw him on Days and it wasn't pretty.

This makes me happy, because while I like AP just fine, more importantly, the more big names they hire, the less likely it is that they can afford to bring RH back.

I think they are trying keep their status on the "hunkiest soap" since they won last year. David Gregory, Nicolas Robuck, Max Tapper, Tuc Watkins, Mark Lawson, David Fumero, and John-Paul Lavoisier are all super hotties. Now they added Josh Kelly and Austin Peck too. I actually think that Tom Degnan is super cute too.

Good for Austin! He was lots of fun on ATWT. I read that his Days stint wasn't that great. However on ATWT, Austin's character was entertaining and he was able work with some fine actors--Terri Conn, Michael Park and the fab Trent Dawson. I am sure all that can make a difference.

This selfish ATWT fan hopes that Trent Dawson (x-Henry)is next!! Love to see all three of them back on the same soap. And, Trent is one excellent actor. Just loved him from the get-go. Charm personified

I started watching OLTL around November. I decided that if I was going to switch to another soap--I was damn well going to support the only NYC soap left! I did watch OLTL while I was in college. So, I am familiar with the long time vets. I also watched GL till the mid 90s or so. Let me say that I am loving Jerry Ver Dorn as Clint! He is awesome. Lots of fun seeing all those vets go at it!!! That is my fave s/l. It's just great soap!

I think OLTL does a lot of stuff right. However, along with some of the wonderful actors---there are some weak ones. I don't think there is any excuse for weak actors when you are filming in NYC. There are plenty of great theater folks to choose from. I don't know--but it seems that if a guy looks good without his shirt on than he might be able to get hired on OLTL. I have never seen so many shirtless guys on a show. It's like everyday half the men on the show have no shirt on--LOL! I don't mind it if they can act too. But. some of these guys can't. (Come to think of it--Austin looks good without a shirt--LMAO) Maybe it's a prerequisite.

I've never seen this guy act before so I'll have to reserve judgement on that. But what role in his age range could possible be needed to fill? Even if DF left the show, they barely use him now. How could hiring a new guy with no history be better than bringing back DG's Kevin Buchanan?

not sure how to greet this news. HATED AP on days; he was the epitome of hair model. i am also concerned about losing a current castmember to make way for this new character. i just haven't been able to get invested in the fords or aubrey/cutter. they are all kinda sleazy and not in a good way.

Personally, I's rather have Brittany Underwood instead of Austin Peck. Of course, I would also prefer Trent Dawson to Austin Peck. I don't have anything against Mr. Peck; it's just that I prefer the other two actors and their potential for greatness.
As for Roger Howarth, I love him too and I think that it is going to be interesting to see where this goes. Don't for get that the painting of Blair was from a photograph of Blair was from one of her weddings to RH's Todd. I'm sure that RH is coming back.
I watched ATWT nearly my entire life and I loved it. I love One Life to Live too but I don't want it to become As the World Turns.

What a waste of OLTL's seemingly limited resources.

I hope he is short term. Yeah its cool to bring another person with a fan following to the show, but not if it costs me someone like JVD or ME or TSJ to pay for him. I also do see him as an improvement over DF...dF's problem is that he hasnt had a great pairing since natalie. Cayla was all sorts of good, but then she went recurring. Gigi UGGH.. he should have been chem tested with kelly or aubrey.

I'm sorry but this whole CBS mass exodus to OLTL is trying my patience! Did we lose Langston for this BS? CBS stars have been a real mixed bag coming to OLTL, and it makes me really miss what made OLTL stand out casting-wise, which was hiring new actors and developing their own talent.

Sounds Like Austin Will Start Recuring which costs less to see how the story gels

I Find That Hard To Say Given We Have No Idea On His Character Or Story

He May be a villian or Gay since Austin Made It sound like this is type of role is new to him and he's excited One life Has Confidence that he can pull it off

How about a gay villain? That would be different...for AP and the show...well if you don't count Daniel Colson. I choose to forget that horrible story.
