Carmen LoPorto: The New Jack Manning!
Thomas Justusson out!
Not only is the Manning family about to add a new member to their fold, with the revelation that Todd’s (Trevor St. John) son T.J. ( Jacob Cook and Luke Kendler Clodfelter) is alive and in Llanview, but the oldest Manning boy is about to get a new face! One Life to Live has recently replaced Thomas Justusson (current Jack Manning) with daytime newcomer Carmen LoPorto!
However, as in many child recasts, Jack Manning will not fall victim to SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome) since both young actors appear to be around the same age.
Acting since the age of seven, Carmen attended the John Robert Powers School of Acting in New York City. Although Carmen has appeared in the films Haber and most recently Pride and Glory, fans may remember him as Peter Pan in the 2005 Disney Thanksgiving Day Parade! In his spare time, Carmen enjoys his academics, playing football and baseball, singing in the school choir and taking Karate.
Although a final airdate hasn’t been set for Thomas Justusson, who took over the role as Jack back in December 2006, fans can look for Carmen to appear on the scene on September 28, 2007!
Soaps.com wants to welcome Carmen to the show! We wish you much success and can’t wait to see you shine in your new role!
