As The World Turns and Guiding Light grad John Wesley Shipp wants soap lovers to know his new gig playing Eddie Ford on One Life to Live won't be anything like his primetime stint as James Van Der Beek's cuckholded daddy on Dawson's Creek.  Here's what he says in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest:


"You will be horrified by what Mitch Leery has become! This is the anti-Mitch Leery if ever there was a part," laughs Shipp of Eddie."

I just hope they keep him FAR away from my Blair (Kassie DePaiva)! Bless her heart, she's had enough sorry excuses for sociopathic lovers to fill a songbook for a one-woman torch song revue at Ultraviolet! (Shout out to @crackmyribsopen for helping me remember the name of Rex's blasted club on Twitter!)
