Castle Casts Cameron Mathison and Rebecca Budig in One Life to Lose Episode


The producers at Castle have cast All My Children’s Cameron Mathison and Rebecca Budig and periodic The Young and the Restless star Corbin Bernsen in its upcoming soap-themed episode “One Life to Lose”, according to TV Guide. Bernsen will portray Lance Buchanan on Castle’s fictional soap Temptations while Mathison plays Vince Bowers and Budig will appear as Mandy Bronson.

Let’s hope Castle finds a role in its soaptastic episode for Nathan Fillion’s former co-star Robin Strasser. That would be the icing on the cake.

    GAG…really??? Two of the 3 most overhyped ABC daytimers (VGM being the other) and not even from OLTL. I smell Fronzie all over this debacle J)

    Let’s hope the rest of the guests are OLTL actors…past and present.

    I cannot stand these two. I just cannooooot stand them.

    But I won’t ask why Erika Slezak and Robert Woods weren’t cast instead. I know why. ABC sticks by it’s AMC and the two Hags in the Pho-Toe Above…..ugh.

    Ugh! I have stopped watching AMC in my eagerness to avoid seeing these two on my screen and now they are going to clutter up CASTLE? AT least Corbin Bernsen is fun to watch so its not all bad.

    And count me in as wanting Robin Strasser to appear on CASTLE. She could be a hot to trot old friend of Castle’s mom who deflowered the young virgin Rick Castle.

    Daniel St. John, I love your Robin Strasser idea. If they’re going to do a nod to Nathan’s soap past wouldn’t it make sense to use actors from OLTL? Apparently ABC doesn’t care.

    Huh? This makes no sense. The episode is called “One life to lose” and they cast AMC actors?

    Nathan Fillion was on One Life to live, why wouldn’t they choose someone from there?

    This has Frons written all over it, he is still trying to sell this boring ass couple. Hey Frons, WAKE UP, No one likes Greenlee/Ryan!!

    I just had to add my two cents to everyone else’s… this is dumb in more ways than one. Once again, that man thinks he can force unlikable couples down people’s throats. And now, primetime has to put up with his tom foolery asshatness. Gag. :sick:

    What’s really bad is that this almost makes me not want to watch the episode! And its a soap dedicated eppy this should be entertaining for OLTL fans they should be thrown a bone.

    Brian Frons OBVIOUSLY has the biggest man crush in the universe for Cameron Mathison. I kinda wish that they would both just have sex and get it over with. LOL!!! :party: :party: :party: :party: Seriously, his obsession with this man and with RYLEE is sickening and explains why AMC is in the ratings crapper!!!

    BTW: I am a big Rebecca Budig fan and wish she didn’t have to deal with the fallout of this toxic coupling. I like Cameron as well, and it seems sometimes that they are as bored and uninspired by this pairing as most of the fans are. It’s a shame when the ACTORS can’t even sell the crap that they are supposed to be peddling.

    Even though I rarely watch AMC; I have to agree its great to have a friend in high places. The lowest ranked soap and here these two are unreal. I have to laugh I read they paid a cool mil for this actress but they slashed 50% of their budget for another one of their soaps
    I guess AMC isn’t in a money crisis. I just would like to know how to be a Frons fav..he certainly has them. I don’t get his favoritism all his actors should be his favs. Not just his select few who he insist through careful machinations to club me to death with…his obsession with Ryan and Greenlee
    drove me firmly out the exit door as a loyal viewer.

    Why not Slezak, Strasser, DePaiva a actor from OLTL why these two?

    I get to the point when I see them I reach for the remote now I have to be bothered with them on my one of my favorite night time shows….What a bummer.

    People are claiming that its cheaper to use LA soap actors than NY (OLTL) they won’t have to fly any actors from NY….I call BS on that, they just wanted to use Cameron because he’s well known thanks to Dancing with the Stars and Rebecca…from that skating show and because Frons really really really loves RYLEE although no one else does.

    I love Castle and Nathan Fillion. By now, I think it’s obvious to anyone paying attention that I have a OLTL obsession. So how do I feel about this?

    I HATE it.

    How exactly is this a nudge and a wink to Nathan’s soap past if the soap stars guesting on his show have absolutely nothing to do with that past? Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Robert Woods, Gina Tognoni, anyone of them would have better choices than those two.

    This is really so Fronsian. GAH!

    I love my Castle & my OLTL…why on god’s green earth use AMC stars….like I don’t see enough of Cam Mat everywhere…but on Castle when its called “One Life to Lose” and Nathan was ON One Life?

    Bad bad move.

    I like Cameron and Rebecca. They haven’t been doing great on AMC, but that’s the writing. I’m looking forward to seeing what Castle’s brilliant writers come up with.
