14 January 6th, 2011 New SORAS’d Jack Manning set to debut on One Life to Live!

Andrew Trischitta has won the coveted role of Todd and Blair’s son, Jack Manning on One Life to Live. As reported last week, the show has decided to age the eldest boy of the Manning clan.  Jack is now supposed to be around 15 years old. Trischitta replaces Carmen LoPorto, who has played Jack for many years, and whose departure left many long time fans upset that the young star was given the heave-ho.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Trischitta’s recent gigs included commercials for Ring Pops and Ruby Tuesday. His first airdate is set for February 22.

    I can’t say I’m too happy… Jack Manning was my favorite kid on not only OLTL but on all the soaps. I just LOVED Carmen LoPorto!!! I will certainly give the new actor a chance but he’s got he’s work cut out for him for me… Carmen played Jack so Todd-like.

    This kid is a TERRIBLE actor! The other boy who was playing was so much better…. im wondering why they chose someone with no acting ability… he’s gotta someone’s kid or grandkid who works on the show… he cant even make basic dialogue believable and is completely monotone! i just don’t understand it!

    He can’t act! It all seems forced the last Jack you could have believed he was capable of anything. This new young adult while cute should have stuck to commercials

    I have watched this show for years and I hate to say it but this kid CANNOT act. My son has been acting in plays for the last 10 years and I have never seen a kid act as badly as this boy. He is horrible. They really need to find someone that can actually play the part. He may be cute, but he needs to be able act and this kid DOES NOT.

    OMG I am a huge OLTL fan but this new Jack Manning actor drives me bonkers. I can no longer watch the show while it’s airing. I have to DVR it so I can fast forward through his scenes–it’s just painful to watch. Cringe-worthy. What were they thinking?

    I realize soap actors aren’t always the best actors around but really? Ugh.

    He may be good looking, but he has no acting ability. He isn’t improving at all. Carmen should have been kept on the show. He was a great actor and looked like he really could be Roger’s son.
