Michael Easton (Caleb, PC: Mike, OLTL)More on Michael Easton in Llanview

Brian Gaskill to AMC? B&B?

It has been confirmed by a OLTL representitive, that Michael Easton (Caleb) has nailed a role on One Life to Live. Easton will play John McBain, a private investigator.

"Frank Valentini (OLTL's executive producer])really wanted him on the show, and he's very excited," says Easton's rep. "He's looking forward to working with one of his best friends, Kamar de los Reyes (Antonio)."
Easton, who started his daytime career on Days of Our Lives, won over a legion of devoted fans when he joined PC in 2001 as vengeful vampire Caleb. Although the character was only set to last through one book, Easton infused a human element to his immortal counterpart, and became a popular permanent fixture.? Soapdom can't forgete Easton as the well-endowed male model on the former prime time show, Ally McBeal.? Look for the actor's OLTL debut as John  McBain on Oct. 1, 2003.

Brian Gaskill (Rafe, PC)Now that Easton has renewed his relationship with ABC, fans are wondering if his on-screen nemesis, Brian Gaskill (Rafe), is far behind. Sources say that Gaskill has an offer on the table to return to All My Children, where he assumed the role of Bobby Warner in 1995.

Gaskill had expressed interest of returning to AMC ? even before PC's cancellation. But he's also weighing the option of staying on the West Coast and joining the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful. According to a rep for the actor, no decisions have been made, but Gaskill's choice will be tempered by the ability to pursue other projects while appearing on a soap.

An AMC spokesperson had no comment on Gaskill joining the show.

Behind the scenes Days of our Lives: Production Designer

As Production Designer on Days of our Lives, Dan Olexiewicz knows how to construct a set. Yes! He is the man behind the famous Horton Town Square, one of the most popular sets used on the show and probably the largest. I mean who would not want to shop there with those unique stores? Or the new TBD Bar where everyone gathers to talk about their trials and tribulations, or plot their next move.

In layman's terms, Olexiewicz controls the designing of the sets. "Yes! I do (Laughing). I do the color scheme, I determine what kind of furniture will be used, and I collaborate with the set decorator giving me a feel of what needs to be done," he said. "I usually begin with a plan that is turned into a floor plan, and we go from there."
