Our antenna went up just a tad, when we saw this bit of casting news which could clearly give some meaty story to Andrew Trischitta of One Life to Live, who as Jack Manning definatily has some anger management issues, family issues, and after all he is a “Manning”.

TOLN announced that they have cast actress Alice Callahan to play the role of Kate, who is the summer school teacher for Jack Manning!  Callahan has appeared in several television shows.  Fans will recognize her as ‘Jessica Leitenberg’ from The CW’s teen series  Gossip Girl. Other credits TV include Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Callahan has appeared in several motion pictures including Almost Perfect and  Morning Glory.

So is One Life to Live about to embark on another contemporary social topic that has been in the news over the last few years?  Is Alice tied in to anyone else on the canvas?  We have our thoughts!  What are yours?

    I wonder if One Life to Live is going to do a “Mary Kay Letourneu” storyline with Jack??

    SOD says she takes an interest in Jack so it looks like a teacher/student relationship is a possibility.

    I could vomit just thinking about this storyline. I hope they don’t go there. It seems to me that they’re just going down a list of social issues in the news, without any regard for staying true to the characters. I’ll keep watching OLTL, but I hate how it’s all sex, partying and drugs. Give me back the show I loved, please, because this isn’t it.

    The characters are internet characters now, they no longer belong to ABC, and that is good thing..
    I love what the PP writers have done with characters, now they are alive and real. :)

    Sounds like a storyline I had hoped for Matthew, but with a female college professor. Oh well, it could still happen!
