More OLTL Casting News!By SOD Posted: Jan 17, 2013
Digest has learned that a casting call has been placed for the contract roles of Matthew Buchanan and Destiny, for Prospect Park's online reboot of OLTL. The parts were previously played by Eddie Alderson and Shenell Edmonds, respectively, until the show's ABC finale. The call also includes the character of Billy, described as "Caucasian, 30s, ruggedly handsome. Charming yet naïve when it comes to relationships. He falls in love first and thinks second. He is a man of strong values who puts family before all else." From 1992-93, Ryan Phillippe portrayed daytime's first gay teen in the role of Billy Douglas, but it's unclear whether the role is for the same part. In other OLTL news, beloved Llanview veterans Bob Woods (Bo) and Erika Slezak (Viki) have both reportedly reached deals with PP. According to Showbiz 411, the actors are very close to signing contracts with the company.
