Ah Pa, your sons are a-feuding!  That’s right… as everybody knows by now, the remaining Buchanan clan are about to have a problem, a big one!  Clint finds out about brother Bo and Nora’s affair (although they have never hit the sheets yet) and the stage is set for some great family drama this week on One Life to Live. Tv.msn.com has a joint interview with Jerry verDorn (Clint) and Robert Woods (Bo) on the revelation of Bo and Nora’s duplicity and Clint’s reaction to it all,  which includes bedding the much younger Kim!  Here is an excerpt on their conversation from the interview- in regards to Bo and Nora on their way back from London to tell all to Clint!

Robert Woods: We’re flying back to tell you. We keep postponing having that conversation and then all of a sudden, we come in to have the conversation, and he comes out with Pa’s shotgun!

Jerry verDorn:
There’s also a great scene with Nora, when she finds Clint and Kim in the bedroom. Kim leaves and we have some great scenes with Nora hemming and hawing, because she doesn’t know I know. I’m giving her every opportunity to tell me herself.  It gets very colorful.

The duo also address what can be done to save the soaps from being cancelled now that As the World Turns has bit the dust.

Jerry verDorn: I think they’re ( soaps) overproduced and underwritten. We literally could do this story in front of black drapes and the audience would watch. What they’re not into watching is explosions and earthquakes. We’re into the narrative, not the special effects.

Robert Woods: That’s a good point! I was just visualizing you holding that shotgun and us standing off after you punched me. It didn’t matter what’s in the background of that! The blow-ups happen within a person. That’s more interesting than a falling building. Stakes can be raised with relationships, which is where we’re blessed with story right now.
