Actor updates from October 31 – November 6: has the latest details surrounding what’s going on in the careers of the former “One Life To Live” actors. This week includes one actress filming with Rapper Ice Cube, another in a feature surrounding a drug addict/male stripper, a special one-woman holiday show, and how many Llanview alums weathered Hurricane Sandy…

Tika Sumpter in Ride Along:
The actress who played Layla Williamson, and recently appeared in the Whitney Houston film “Sparkle,” has been cast in the new film “Ride Along.” Though the project is still in the filming stages it follows a school security guard (Comedian Kevin Hart) who goes on a ride along through hell with his fiancée’s cop brother (Rapper Ice Cube).

Teddy Sears a Master Of Sex?
Last week we alerted fans to Teddy Sears’ (ex-Chad Bennett) “666 Park Avenue” guest spot, and this week we have a new film role to reveal. Sears will appear as Dr. Austin Langham in the upcoming film “Masters Of Sex.” Starring Michael Sheen (“The Twilight Saga’s” Aro) the storyline focuses on the science of human sexuality and the research based off of the sexual revolution.

Jackie Hoffman’s A Chanukah Charol:
The funny actress who played Llanview’s Eunice Burns will be taking her one-woman show back onstage. Jackie Hoffman’s “A Chanukah Charol” has been a holiday favorite inspired by another favorite “A Christmas Carol,” in which she’ll reflect on her life (past, present, and future) with the help of a few ghosts. Performances will begin Saturday December 8 and run through Saturday December 22 at New World Stages at 340 West 50th Street (between Eighth & Ninth Avenues) in New York City, New York. As an added treat there will be a special performance on Tuesday December 29. Please visit New World Stages for times and ticket information.

Alice Barrett Mitchell talks Doubt role:
Llanview fans will remember the actress for her role as Dr. Morrison, and back in October we brought news about Alice Barrett Mitchell in Doubt. Mitchell talked to about her new project and the character she plays. “To say it’s daunting to take on a role previously played by Cherry Jones [“Awake”] and Meryl Streep [“Hope Springs”] is an understatement, to say the least. But I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work on this beautifully crafted play. Sister Aloysius is unlike any other role I’ve played and I embrace the challenge and thrill of it.” Visit the T. Schreiber Studio and Theatre for ticket information.
