Jesse Malakouti as Dusky:
Watch this behind the scenes video of Jesse Malakouti, who plays the new singer at Shelter named Dusky. We last saw the actress in Llanview when she sang her song "White Girl Wasted" at the nightclub.
Behind the scenes with JWoww:
JWoww appeared as Shelter's bartender Nikki last week. Take this behind the scene tour of some of her first moments leading up to her debut and hear the similarities between Nikki and JWoww, who starts off with, "So this is my bar?"
Chris Beetem's Comedy Central video:
Last December Soaps.com told readers about Chris Beetem's (ex-Tate Harmon) upcoming Comedy Central project. Watch the webisode of the actor as Cliff in "Inside Amy Schumer: The Perm." Please be advised that the video contains profanity.
Roscoe Born's I Take It On Faith:
In the past we've posted various videos of Roscoe Born's (ex-Mitch Laurence) songs. The latest, written by Born and produced by Paul Robinson, is titled "I Take It On Faith."
One Life To Live actor fun fact:
Mikey Jerome won "I Wanna Be A Soap Star" in 2006 and landed the Llanview role of Ted Osbourne that same year. Unfortunately his character was quickly killed off. However, BethAnn Bonner, who came in third during the reality show was cast as Talia Sahid in 2006 and played the character until 2009 when she was also killed off the show.
