Here is a bit of intriguing casting news right from Opal Gardner herself, Jill Larson! The All My Children star not only tweeted, but also posted on her facebook page that CBS The Price is Right’s first ever male model contest winner, Rob Wilson has joined Prospect Park’s revival of the series as Opal’s son, Petey Cortlandt!
As AMC fans know, Daniel Kennedy was the last actor to play the role of Petey Cortlandt. As far as Wilson, last October he won the nearly two month search going up against other male hopefuls seeking the job on the number one CBS Daytime game show for their groundbreaking move to have a first hot male model, when for decades that role was handled only by beautiful women.
What do you think of the casting of Rob Wilson as Petey Cortlandt? Is Prospect Park sexing up their soaps? Weigh-in!
