Could One Life to Live’s “Kelly” find a new home in Salem? All My Children’s “Angie” pop up in Genoa City? According to a report on deadline.com, NBC’s Days of Our Lives and CBS’s The Young and the Restless are working hard to snag stars from the aforementioned ABC soaps and add them to their casts.
Two of the top name names being bandied about are Emmy winners Gina Tognoni, who plays Kelly on One Life to Live, and Debbi Morgan, who portrays Angie on All My Children. Other stars reportedly on the NBC and CBS soaps’ wish list are Jacob Young (JR, All My Children) and Josh Kelly (Cutter, One Life to Live).
Word is that Sony Pictures TV President Steve Mosko is the driving force behind the recruiting effort. Both Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless are Sony productions.
