    Van Hughes Recast As One Life To Live's Cole Thornhart.

    Tuesday, November 01 2011


    Van Hughes (Van Hughes)
    Major recast.

    Just this morning reports came in that Brandon Buddy was unable to return as planned as Cole Thornhart. Now, Daytime Confidential is reporting that Broadway actor Van Hughes has stepped in to fill the role in what will be viewed as a major recast for Llanview fans. Though Brandon did shoot one day's worth of scenes already, those will be re-shot with Van in the role.

    Van appeared on "One Life To Live" in 2010 as Ulrich Simon and played Gil Penn on "As The World Turns" from 2006 to 2007. He also appeared in "Sex In The City," as well as its sequel, and in "Law & Order," to name a few of his other credits.

    I am just thrilled that the character of Cole is returning. He and Starr belong together. Hope this means James is leaving Llanview.

    Yeah, bring it on. Cole back and Starr and Hope will reunite as a family. James is ok, but not daddy material.

    I was never a Cole fan and not because of the actor so I don't want another one. I like Starr and James together.

    I'm very excited that Cole will be coming back. I do hope that Starr will give him another chance as would like those 2 to be together by Jan. If not then Cole should get Hope as Starr leaves Hope way to much.
