TVLine Dreamcasts One Life and AMC Actors in Primetime Gigs!

With the series finales of All My Children and One Life To Live nearing, many are wondering what will happen to the talented casts of both soaps. TVLine has created a fun content piece, "dreamcasting" the thesps onto primetime shows. According to them, OLTL's Eddie Alderson should be sent over to the CW's highly-anticipated The Secret Circle.
Alderson is one of the strongest young actors on daytime TV today, so why not let him work his magic -- so to speak -- on The CW's buzzy new series (premiering Thursday, Sept. 15)? We would love to watch Alderson come to terms with his witchy ways as the little brother of one of the New Salem coven's leading ladies. There's a slight Britt Robertson resemblance there, no?
