Nicholas Robuck is playing the contract role of James Ford, Robert Ford's brother, although the article doesn't mention this fact. He starts airing June 7.

There are more hints about James in this article: http://michaelfairmansoaps.com/news/olt ... 010/05/26/

Jason Tam is taking the summer off from his day job as Markko Rivera on "One Life to Live."

According to his website, the 27-year-old Tam, who joined "OLTL" on March 21, 2007, has been "selected to take part in the Public Theatre's Summer Shakespeare Lab, a classical intensive for mid-career actors. He'll be taking a two month hiatus from 'One Life to Live' to accommodate the Lab's rigorous schedule."

A last airdate for Tam has not been announced, and it is not clear how exactly the character of Markko will be written off the canvas for the summer.

Sabine Singh (AMC's Ex- Greenlee) is returning to daytime television. She has been cast on OLTL. Sabine will play the recurring role of "Wendy," a hooker that hooks up with David Vickers.

Starr and Hope Kidnapped!; SOD Article Summary

Just when Starr thinks that her life is full of enough drama, a mysterious stranger arrives to shake things up. “It’s a pretty dangerous situation,” Head Writer Ron Carlivati says.

“James is a boy in trouble,” Carlivati explains of the newcomer. “He is on the run and Starr ends up getting pulled into all of his problems, which is going to have a little bit of a ripple effect through some of the younger kids on the canvas.”

We first see James lurking around the hospital, but when he sees a man passing around his photo, he takes off and runs into Starr. “He’s come to town to see a loved one, but he has some pretty bad people chasing after him, so he’s on the run and takes advantage of the situation with Starr to sort of escape the bad guys, and in doing so, he pulls Starr into it.”

So what does Starr think of James? “She doesn’t like this guy at all when she first meets him, although they have sort of a nice first meeting, but then he takes some actions that do not make Starr very happy.” Meanwhile, things aren’t going very smoothly between Starr and Cole. “James is coming in to throw a little monkey wrench into the Starr and Cole love story and kick off a little summer adventure,” reveals Carlivati. “We have Starr and Cole being threatened by Hannah, who’s wormed her way in, so we thought this would be a good time to bring somebody in to kind of mix it up with Starr and balance out the story a little bit and add a little spice on the Starr side.”

“She and Cole have their little moments [of happiness],” Carlivati continues. “We gave them their little bubble at the prom. We wanted to remind people that this is a couple who loves each other and they have a child that they love and they have these little pockets of happiness, but it wouldn’t be a soap opera if [we] didn’t threaten it all the time.”

Meanwhile, Starr’s graduation from high school is just around the corner. Will she make it in time?

"One Life to Live" has released more information regarding a recent audition script for a "Private Investigator." The soap is looking for an African-American actor in their mid-30s for the recurring role, which is described as "charming, good looking, and extremely successful."

http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/soaps/o ... -8-edition

ONE LIFE TO LIVE: I am hearing the show is getting ready to dismiss several actors come this summer. And insiders are saying it is more of the teen set then the veterans....One man learns he's going to be a father (sounds like Brody) while another man learns he has a son he never knew he had. This can only pertain to Rex and finally end this story. But.....could Rick be going by another name now? And could that person who ever his name is now live in Llanview who worked in casinos before he came to Llanview? If you know your OLTL history you will remember that Clint had been estranged from his family for years. So where was he all that time until Bo convinced him to return...Aaah the possibilities

Rappin' With OLTL's Rex

— By Lauren Flynn Kelly

In our latest feature on the ONE LIFE TO LIVE star (in the 6/15 issue), John-Paul Lavoisier discusses his many loves, from poker to Farah Fath (Gigi), but so much of our juicy interview didn't make it into the magazine that we had to include it in a Web Q&A. Read on to learn more about Lavoisier.

Soap Opera Digest: You have lived in New York since 2002. Do you have any desire to move to L.A. and become a beach bum in Santa Monica?
John-Paul Lavoisier: Uh ... I've said this many times before: I hate the beach. I am incredibly unhappy when I'm at the beach. I can't just sit. Last summer [Fath and his family] took a vacation to this island off the coast of Georgia and I kinda had fun. We were drinking beers on the beach and playing cornhole. Looooove cornhole. But no, I will never be a surfer dude or a lifeguard or those people who hang off the boats, what are they, parasailers?

Digest: Could you ever see yourself on another soap?
Lavoisier: Yes, I could. If I was no longer on ONE LIFE TO LIVE for whatever reason and another soap opera called me, I would be hard-pressed not to consider it because it's something I really love to do. And I'd be interested in seeing what other characters somebody would be interested in having me build over a long period of time. I've been doing Rex now for over eight years and it's Rex, so it'd be interesting to see what ideas another show might have for me to have a long run at that's very not Rex.

Digest: Did you ever think Rex would last this long in Llanview?
Lavoisier: No, absolutely not. Especially because my first year, they didn't really know what they were going to do with me. I spent every week assuming I probably wasn't going to work anymore. I had a contract, but I just figured when my contract was up, you know ... they let so many people come and go. So I was shocked when they offered me a four-year contract and then another one, and with the bringing on of Gigi and Shane and them keeping me close to Bo, I figured, "Oh, okay, they'll probably come at me with a third contract," and they did!

Digest: Last year, there was the major plot twist that Rex is Mitch's son, which was later revoked. What do you make of that whole thing and where it's going?
Lavoisier: I understand that they wanted to make Mitch his father because the audience was like, "Let's go already," and they had Roscoe [Born] back on and a lot of people thought that Mitch was Rex's father anyway. Also, around that same time I was going through contract negotiations, so they were probably covering their butts in case I was no longer going to be there and now that I have another long-term contract, I think they can invest the final answer now, but I don't know!

Digest: It seemed at one point that they were going to make Schuyler Rex's brother. Were you surprised by the direction that story took?
Lavoisier: Sure. It looked that way because they made Schuyler Roxy's kid and then we were both Roxy's kid, but then I was not Roxy's kid. Again, I don't know if all this was a combination of writing Schuyler off and also me being in contract negotiation.

Digest: Did you ever imagine you'd be playing a dad at this point in your career?
Lavoisier: No, never! When I got into this business I never in my wildest dreams would have ever considered myself even playing a father. I guess if you had asked me 10 years ago, "Hey do you think you'll ever play a dad?" my answer would have been, "Yeah, when I'm 60 I guess I'll play a dad." But I haven't really thought about it in awhile. I have really gotten used to the idea of seeing Austin [Williams] and having him call me dad.
