Kim Zimmer (Ex- Reva, GL & Echo, OLTL) who has been busy on the boards in the theatre,  is now set to for a terrific role in the highly touted independent feature film, 23 Blast!  Principal photography begins Monday in Corbin,  Kentucky!

The Daytime Emmy winner will play the on-screen mother to another daytime favorite, Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan, DAYS) who plays the lead role in 23 Blast!  Zimmer plays the role of  Mary Freeman.

Toni Hoover and Bram Hoover wrote the 23 Blast  script, which follows a high school football star (Hapka) who’s suddenly stricken with irreversible blindness and the choice he’s forced to make regarding whether he should return to the sport.

Glee’s Max Adler will play another football player who’s initially unsupportive of his teammate but eventually comes around.  Many recall, Adler played the bully in the closet on the hit FOX show.

We think this film sounds extremely compelling, and look forward to its future! What do you think of Kim playing Mark’s mom? Let us know!

    Ok somebody has to post here might as well be me.I like kim zimmer good actress ,but what echo did to vicki I can not forget she broke vicki’s heart with charley and I havent liked her since.No one breaks vicki’s heart and gets away with it .


    david replied

    Another way to look at it is thanks to Echo messing with Charlie, we had the fun of watching Viki slap Echo after finding her with Charlie, Viki and Dorian team up against her, Sam as Spiderman rescue Dorian, Viki reunite with Clint, and together living happily ever after.


    barbara t replied

    You have a point there.And I am happy that vicki and clint are back together again and hopefully married.

    I love Kim, congrats and it does sound like a good movie! Kim will forever be Reva to me, not her other characters being not familiar with all of them. Nothing like when Reva Shayne blew into Springfield.

    Congratulations to Kim! I have seen her in Guiding Light and on the stage and she always seems to steal the show! I can’t wait to see her in “23 Blast”! GO KIM!

    I love Kim Zimmer and I enjoyed Mark’s work on DOOL. This film sounds very promising. I hope it is quite a success!

    Kim is not the only one doing an independent film. The upcoming film ‘HELL AND MR. FUDGE’ stars John Wesley Shipp (GL/ATWT/SB/AMC/OLTL) and Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R) as the parents of theologian Edward Fudge, played by Mackenzie Astin, the son of award winning actress Patty Duke (who played on the soap THE BRIGHTER DAY in 1958-59)
