REWIND! ATWT's Tom Degnan Tapped To Play OLTL's Joey Buchanan


According to

ABC Soaps In Depth


One Life to Live

has decided to replace

Josh Kelly

in the role of Joey Buchanan with

As The World Turns'

Tom Degnan

(Adam/Riley). Kelly will instead play a contract role on the show. Executive Producer

Frank Valentini

released a statement to the magazine saying:

After auditioning a talented group of guys for the role of Joey, we are excited to announce that not one, but two of them will be joining the cast of OLTL in contract roles. We have now cast Tom Degnan in the role of Viki's son, Joey Buchanan, and we have decided that Josh Kelly is a great fit for the other contract role that we have written. We look forward to both actors joining the show.

No word on when Kelly will debut on the show, but Degnan makes his way to Llanview on Nov. 24. Now tomorrow, Kim Zimmer will still be Echo and not Elizabeth Keifer right? I'm just sayin'.
