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.

ugh! He couldn't act on Days, didn't like him on ATWT, either. If they want some of the ATWT actors, couldn't they have grabbed Michael Parks or Jon Hensley (before he moved out west w/ Kelley and family)?

Hope it's not a Kevin recast, as I love DG and I agree w/ other posters...another character not tied to an existing family (and I do NOT mean a Ford family member!!) is not neccessary Sad

Austin Peck is all kinds of sexy! I watched him on Days and he was awful (pretty, but awful), but he really learned to act on ATWT where he became way better looking too IMO.

That said, how can ABC justify firing people left and right and still be hiring?

I love this news. If they dont play him with Aubrey there's always Kelly.

I'm interested to see him, though I do wish OLTL would curb it with the newbies. Even if the newbies are oldies from other networks. I didn't care for him on Days as Austin, AT ALL. Like others said, he really was nothing more than a hair model. But I did like him on ATWT w/Terri. I thought he had greatly improved. But I'll just be playing the wait and see game in this case.

Okay color me stupid here, but all this speculation about AP playing a gay character...I guess its kind of confusing to me...wouldnt that totally be insulting that they wrote off kish in the way they did if they then turn around and bring on another gay character?? Especially if said character also turns out to be a con/villian type in the coulson mold?? I hope thats not the direction this goes in at all.

Again, my preference would be for this to be a short term role. I just dont see the need for another male character in that age range, and yeah, if there is, I agree with the others it should be DG in the role of Kevin.

Maybe they're going to give Tom whatshisface the boot and recast Joey with Austin?

Or make him CJ? If Cutter isn't, of course. Cords are used to cut, and he did say it was a family name today.

I didnt see todays but Cutter might be CJ?? I dont know how Joey, who lived in London with Cord for years, would not know what Cords son looked like. Even if they never met, wouldnt he have at least seen a photo or something?? I guess in the age of social networking, I would think that sarah would have facebook or my space and even if cj wasnt in touch with the entire family, she would have pics of him. And while I readily accept that tina would let cj stay estranged for years, Im not sure I buy Cord not demanding contact and fighting for their relationship

EricasEvilTwin,

It was something that was being discussed in one of the earlier One Life posts. It DOES seem implausible, unless CJ/Cutter had plastic surgery due to an injury while he was a Seal. Maybe he even faked his death?

Granted, something like that would seemingly be reported in character, even if it was just a phone call Cord had off screen with Clint, or Sarah and Viki etc.

But this is a soap, and stranger things have happened.

Can't say I call this a good move....He's just not that great of an actor & considering the "extra" drama that occured on ATWT not what OLTL needs...

Awesome news, as long as someone else doesn't get the boot as a result.

I think this is great news but i don't want someone else on OLTL to be fired to make room for AP, unless the character of that someone has a last name of either Salinger or Ford (Not James!).

Kelly did say that she sent Cord a picture of Cutter to see if he recognized the pic and Cord said he didn't except from that magazine

Good---now if Days brings back Austin and Carrie, they'll have to use Patrick Muldoon! Laughing out loud :-D
