    Zach too? my life is complete. I wonder why there’s a hold up with every one else. I hope someone remembers Jen Lily if they have to recast anyone. Wow, its really happening. Im happy for all those people. Lets get this party started!!!!!

    @stefanstavros….Bree won’t be back. She is starring in a primetime series on NBC called DECEPTION. I personally would like a break from her.

    This is more a reflection on Frank and Ron, but I have no issues with the OLTL cast at all. Frank and Ron made all those characters interesting and left them in a good spot. I am really excited. I was/am worried that OLTL is still considered the less desirable brand, but just based on the cast I am ready to tune in. I can see the connections amongst the characters and it really shows what soaps are about: family. Plus, Tea. Yaas!

    The AMC cast on the other hand seems more cobbled together at this point. I like Angie, Jesse, and Opal and the rest I am going to have trouble ff’ing through on the web.

    *Blank stares* that AMC cast list is rather trim. I’m also surprised Melissa Archer sign on from OLTL. I Really wanted to see Natalie bitchslap Samantha Mccall(KM) on GH. That could’ve been and still be a magnificent classic soap rilvary. In other news OLTL could still be that force to be reckoned with (fingers crossed)

    Andrew Trischitta? Really???

    He was, by far, the weakest link at OLTL. Jack Manning could be an awesome character with an actor who knows what he is doing.

    It looks like they got back the same people who had previously signed on. Do they really trust PP after the last let down? How will they sell AMC without Lucci? The OLTL cast lacks leading men in their 40s. David is a joke, Cutter is younger. Tomas/Ted King was part of the 2 Todds he should be there.

    I hope PP announces The AMC writing team soon. Any idea on when that will be?

    Im sure CM & MEK will sign on for AMC

    Maybe AM & SL will recur as Kendall and Erica

    Maybe recast Binks

    I wonder if they will bring back the character of Kevin Buchanan if they are unable to get Howarth, Easton, TSJ or TK back.

    AW HECK NAW.
    Take Andrew Trishictta back.
    Maybe he’ll get lost in the shuffle of GH stars who will be coming back and OLTL will end up with Chad Duell.

    Trevor St. John NEEDS to be back in Llanview! Victor will be to OLTL 2.0 as Todd is to the current GH. With Victor, Tea, Dani and Jack, this is the core of the Lord family. Hopefully, Todd is back just so he can be exonerated for Victor’s death. Plus, it seems that Florencia has better chemistry with Trevor than with Roger.

    If they must bring Jessica back, I’ve narrowed it down to Jen Lilley or Marcy Ryland.

    I’m really hoping that Andrew Trischetta has gotten some serious acting lessons over the past year. Otherwise…

    I’m glad Shaun is back as are the Patels.

    Other hopeful returns are:
    Eddie Alderson (Matthew)
    Shenell Edmonds (Destiny)
    Ilene Kristen (Roxy)

    I don’t see how AMC can do much with such a fractured cast; it will be a completely new show, perhaps The Angie and Jesse Show? As for OLTL, with the cast shown, the possibilities are limitless! Hooray! HOWEVER, I would definitely ditch the Destiny Does Llanview storyline. I may be trying to make a joke here but my sentiments are very real and serious. OLTL was a wonderful show; its ratings and audience were solid. Please treat the reboot and the OLTL fans with the respect that they deserve and give them good story lines and interesting characters and NOT farfetched, ridiculous garbage.

    If Thorsten Kaye is returning then Susan Haskell should be brought back to OLTL. And I am so happy with this development. I do hope that there will be more casting news. We need to remember that most of these stars live out on the West coast so up and living the west coast to do an online show would be kind of dumb. But for those who already live on the East coast it is a great opportunity especially when work is needed.

    Leave Jack alone AT is such a sweet heart in real life. I am glad to have him and Dani back on. Sam will return but I think they will probably have him off in boarding school like Morgan for a stint. Remember there are still more casting to do.

    AMC still needs more characters in order for me to feel good about it. They do not need to recast Bianca the last actress did a great job.

    Sam will be back. He is a child actor so they aren’t putting him on contract. Most of the people listed they wanted to lock down. I’m sure Sam, Roxy and Nigel will make appearances. They just won’t have a contract.

    I’m kind of happy that Andrew Trishictta is back! Although he was AWFUL, after a while it became like watching weird existential performance art. It was as if James Franco had cast a guy pretending to be an actor to play an actor portraying a character on a soap opera. LOL

    This makes me happy! I still say they need to bring back Max Holden and his twins (who would be in their 20’s). He could mix it up with Blair or Tea. Also bring back Adrianna Cramer with a recast. I think they should have Cutter’s mom on also since we just found out that she is Alex Olanov played by the delicious Tonja Walker!

    Andrew was getting the hang of it, then the show was yanked. He’s a handsome little boy and I for one will be rooting him on. With that, I just want to say I cant imagine the stress that each and every one of the actors endured with this cancellation. Their lives were literally pulled from under them, most being in the same jobs, in the same area for years. It would have been alot better if there were more soap opera options, but sadly they are all gone. Angie and Jessie on Y&R was very sad for me to watch cause they didnt even have a chance at the acting we know they are good for. Speaking of Jessie, did he ever explain that baby? I dont remember. And I hope Angie is not blind. And Tad better come back.,

    I will agree that his acting wasn’t the best but I am hoping that his year off he went to some acting classes. He is a very handsome young man and I am willing to give him another chance.

    I am assuming that they have others that they want on both shows but have not signed contracts yet. No word yet on the AMC writers and they only have 1/3 of the cast. They are most likely recasting JR also. Where are the Kane women? We need Erica and her two daughters Bianca and Kendall!

    AMC…I still want Erica, Lucci is the lightening rod for AMC and I’m sure PP isn’t dissing LaLucci but talking…come on PP serve us up Erica :love:

    Kendall is must now with Zack, Bianca Christina Bennett Lind, was perfect in role as an adult Bianca. She had family chemistry going on with Kendall & Erica, Jack.

    I wonder two things

    1. How will they explain why Landview and Pine Valley lost their most prominent citizens?

    2. Will I still want to watch either show with such a limited cast? I like a small cast because the stories are more concentrated but these are not necessarily the the most interesting members of either town.

    YIKES!!! The AMC cast list worries me a little bit! Granted the actors who play Angie and Jesse are super talennted and the charcaters have such deep roots with the show– their last stint on AMC – they were kinda borning once they united them.
    I think it goes without saying that AMC needs SUSAN LUCCI in some way…recurring..full time whatever. The same can be said for Alicia M. Both ladies are needed back to usher this to the web.
    I think AMC needs Marissa and Bianca back too. Also: Brooke to rund out the Erica storylines. I would also suggest recasting Liza and Colby. Maybe Beth Chamberlain as Liza??
    I also think Amanda and Jake shoudl come back- played by RPG and CS.

    As far as the cast of OLTL- I cant say I am surprised. I feel those actors have always been very loyal to their fans and their show. OLTL cast never got the PR or respect as the actors on AMC or GH – yet they stood strong and gave us great storylines and acted their hearts out day in and day out.

    I am happy to see all those returns. I would love Terri C back as Aubrey.
    I would also love Laura Bonarrigo to come back as Cassie or maybe they could go after Martha Bryne to play Cassie. And they could recast River- have him as a young 20 something?
    Joey and Kevin shoudl come back. I hope Dan G comes back as Kevin and maybe bring back a former actor who played Joey.
    I alos think Erin T will be back as Jessica!!!!

    I hardly consider Bree’s role on Deception a starring role considering the fact that her character is dead. They can’t show flashbacks forever.

    So many people freaking out at the AMC cast. This isn’t gonna be the final cut. No one would watch just those 7 actors. Who would Zach interact with? This is who they have so far. Its only a matter of time.

    And no AMC does not need Susan Lucci. Her character is a joke.

    If Bo Brady can leave DOOL after 30+ years Erica Kane can leave PV

    all the oltl recurring characters are racial minorities! that is pathetic! it’s getting even worse w/ hollywood casting! how the heck is that going to encourage people to watch oltl when already the minorities are getting less significance?

    can someone clarify the financial status and educational backgrounds of vimal and rama? pew research has reported that Asian americans have the highest median among all groups and spend the most. pew research has reported that Filipino americans and Indian americans are the richest among Asian americans. pew has reported that Asian americans are the most educated among all groups.

    what’s the comparison w/ vimal and rama and the lord buchanans? are they equally rich? richer? would hollywood even dare to make racial minorities equally wealthy to the white chars? that would be realistic based on pew research’s report on Asian americans.

    but hollywood only uses “realism” when they whitewash diversity from tv shows. it’s “realistic” for hbo’s girls to have no people of color even if it’s an ny based show bec of white privilege. it’s “realistic” for no racial minorities on mad men bec of the 60s ny era. it’s realistic when they don’t want racial minorities.

    hollywood and the manhattan mainstream media were furious at gallup’s report on the low economic status of lgbt community. that’s bec gallup goes against the narrative created by hollywood regarding lgbt community. hollywood’s lgbt chars are often rich and trendy and fashionable and white. it’s a form of social brainwashing. hollywood wants society to think that way abt lgbt and it’s for advertisers to be fooled to thinking that lgbt community is profitable and their glaad galas should be desirous to advertisers. gallup has refuted that w/ their report on the low economic status of the lgbt community.

    yet abc soaps like revenge have white lgbt chars like nolan equally rich while the black char ashley is an assistant that has to climb the ranks. typical hollywood racism.

    Love the additions to OLTL!!! So glad that it’s official that Viki, Tea, Bo, Nora, David, Blair are definitely back. And I’m glad to see Vimal back, even if it is recurring. I always thought he was so entertaining and funny. I’m glad to see Cutter back too, I hope he’s shirtless often like he was before lol.

    I’m glad to see Melissa back as Natalie, I always liked her. Can Brody come back for her since John will likely stay on GH? He was man candy too! And I actually liked Bree as Jessica, she could always come back sometime, never know.

    And I’m happy to see the girl returning as Danielle. She’s very pretty and a good actress. Jack I’m not so sure about. I hope the actor has gotten better in the year they have been off. He definitely has the looks, just has to bring the acting!

    And I hope the boy who played Sam comes back also, too bad he can’t stay little and cute like that but for so long! Hope to see Roxy, Tina, and Gabrielle, even if it’s recurring.

    At AMC I’m glad to see Jessie, Zach, and Opal coming back also. But AMC needs a lot more vets to come back!!!

    @Y2Jin99….obviously you don’t watch much TV…..LOST….DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES…666 PARK AVENUE…DARK SHADOWS…REVENGE all rely (relied) on stories that go back and forth in time. Bree’s character on DECEPTION is integral to the show. If the show succeeds (that’s the real issue) she could easily be seen in flashbacks for years.

    Not to mention now that she is has had the exposure in a primetime series it is less likely she would return to the soap. That’s how the biz works.

    Thanks for keeping us updated Jamey!!

    OLTL:

    I’m happy they were able to get a lot of the actors back. I’ll even admit that Andrew (Jack) was starting to hit his stride. Love that they got Josh Kelly back.

    I’m sure some of the other roles are being recasts Matthew, Destiny, Jessica, remember, I’m sure PP approached all the actors, some said yes, some no, others yes but on a recurring basis.

    As far as Micheal (John), Roger (Todd), and Kristin (Starr) maybe ABC and PP are getting closer to an agreement, maybe they’ll only be on OLTL for a few weeks then they can go back to GH, time will tell.

    As far as AMC’s concern:

    I am not freaked out yet, about the cast size:
    Darnell and Debbie were on Y&R and on recurring so it was probably easy for them to get out of their contracts.

    We know Cameron (Ryan) and Alicia (Kendall) have been approached. I am sure Walt (Jackson) and MEK (Tad) have been approached as well. All other roles might be getting recasts, they’re more than enough former soap stars looking for work to fill the other roles.

    As far as Susan (Erica) goes, since she has other projects on the horizon, she’ll come on a recurring basis for Ms. Nixon

    Bree Williamson is also a regular on Haven on the SyFy network in addition to her gig on Deception. I would not expect her to go back to OLTL. And the David Gregory seems to be looking to try his hand at making a go of it in LA too so I wouldn’t expect him to come back either.

    I second the idea of casting Beth Chamberlin as Liza. I thought she would have been perfect for the part when Jamie Lunar was woefully miscast in the role.

    As far as Susan Lucci goes, while it would be great to have her on the show, I don’t consider her to be totally necessary. There are other characters that can be focused on in her absence and Lucci seems to be doing fine in her post-AMC career so it would behoove fans to prepare themselves for her not coming to the rebooted show.
    What I would hope for is that PP can lure David Canary and Julia Barr back which would make the absence of Lucci not so glaring.

    AMC’s list frustrates me. I’m seeing a show built around the hospital, which is fine for me. I’m not seeing the core or history of the show. Where are the Martins? Michael Knight hasn’t had any work since the show ended, why isn’t he on here yet? Granted, without Dixie, I don’t want him on there. They’d mess their happy ending up.

    Hopefully they’re taking the initiative to go after Brooke (Julia Barr). If Susan Lucci doesn’t come, then the only woman that could be a true lead would be Brooke. I’d be happy with a recast of Liza. I never liked the redheaded one who did law school in a month. I don’t need JR. I think the best explanation for the previous episode that ended with the gunshot and black screen would be that he shot himself. It was his perspective that we last saw, so it’d be natural that the gunshot went off and he saw black.

    There is the need for a Kane woman and the most suitable one would be Kendall. I have never been a fan of Bianca, and I hated the forced Marissa storyline. It never seemed genuine. Maybe it had to do with their recast of Marissa, but I never liked the second one.

    AMC is gonna have to think outside the box with the Lucci problem. If she is a no show, they are going to have to find a big diva to center the show around.
    One possibility is to bring back Tara. Nancy Frangione could play the part again and maybe they could beef up the part so that she is tougher and strong minded.
    Another possibility is to hire someone like Kim Zimmer, or Colleen Zink or Vitoria Wyndom (I know she’s “retired” and living in CA but I bet she is ready to make a comeback) to create a new pivitol character. What the show needs is a new bible that kind of reboots the show. Unless ofcourse Lucci actually signs up but I am not betting on that. If there is no Erica, I think they need to retire her daughters too. It would create too much of a hole in the story.

    My biggest concern is for AMC. Where are all the cast members? I love that Jesse and Angie are there, and I’m really surprised that Thorsten signed on but without Kendall what’s the point if AM doesn’t sign.

    I am beyond excited for OLTL though. Looks like most of their heavy hitters have signed on including my Natalie!!! I think since some characters crossed over to GH, ABC would be smart to promote the online version of OLTL during GH, and keep the characters going back and forth between both shows periodically instead of just pulling them from GH permanently.

    This will be interesting to see how this plays out. It really looks like it’s happening this time though, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

    OLTL is still on permanent boycott from me even though some of favorite actors in daytime are on the show. They still need to atone for their sins i.e. the unwarranted firing of Kish before I’d consider watching gaain.

    I guess this project is *beneath* Susan Lucci. No surprise there. She probably wanted more money. Stupid, considering she hasn’t worked one iota in a YEAR (unless I missed it).

    You’ve missed quite a lot. First, she took at least one pay CUT before AMC was cancelled, so wanting more money isn’t very realistic.

    As for working, she’s working on two series: Marc Cherry’s upcoming Devious Maids, and she hosts Deadly Affairs on the Investigation Discovery channel. Also, since leaving AMC, she has had a recurring role on Army Wives and made a return appearance on Hot In Cleveland.

    I kind of agree about retiring Erica’s daughters if they are going to not have Erica. Of course, I don’t see having Zach on there without Kendall. That is one of the problems with all of the casting. They need pairs. Tad and Dixie, Brooke and Adam, Zach and Kendall. Other than Brooke, I can’t see any of the others working without the other. (Tad could go at it alone, but what would be the explanation of Dixie not being there? I don’t see Cady McClain “stooping” to an internet soap.)

    I think Brooke could be the centerpiece. Her and Adam could have married, Adam (if David Canary doesn’t want to reprise his role) could have suddenly died from his heart problems, and she is fighting Colby for his estate. It could have a dramatic impact on her character since she’s had so much heartache through the years, etc. She becomes CEO of Chandler Enterprises and queen of Pine Valley since Erica is out in LA.

    I should be a writer…

    How will they sell AMC w/o any of the Kane women? I’m assuming AM is close to signing, otherwise why bring on TK? No Zendall? Unthinkable! Hoping PP approaches ER. Could never warm up to Bianca played by anyone else. Is all of NBC’s Smash filmed for the season? I know TK doesn’t have a huge part in that, but he IS in it.

    As for OLTL, hoping IK will at least make an appearance or two, if nothing more than to grab John by the… for doing her Nattie wrong. Other than that, I’m happy with who they’ve brought back. Except for Jack, lol.

    Ummm, no offense, but shouldn’t everyone just be grateful that there will even BE an AMC and an OLTL back on air?

    I mean – all this talk about this and that who should be on, and “how can it succeed without this and that” ain’t exactly gonna help! If I’m a hardcore fan of something/ someone, I’ll take it any way I can.
