Touchback Will Touch Your Heart

Last night I watched the film Touchback starring "Port Charles" alum Brian Presley (Jack), who also co-produced the film. I really wasn't sure what to expect from this movie. I knew very little about Presley's production company Freedom Films or about Touchback since it wasn't heavily promoted. In addition I had never seen Presley in anything other than "Port Charles," but I knew the film was supposed to be inspirational and a project that Presley was passionate about so I added it to my watch list, and I am so glad I did. Touchback is both inspirational and entertaining and serves as an outstanding showcase for Brian Presley's talent and range as an actor. 

Everyone has had those "what if" moments, where they imagine how different their lives would be if they had chosen another path or if various unforeseen incidents had not intervened to change the course of their life forever. Touchback explores this aspect of humanity in a way that is markedly different from other films of the same subject. While Presley's character Scott isn't entirely unhappy, he is plagued by financial problems with no discernible solution. When Scott reaches his lowest point and appears to have hit rock bottom, something miraculous happens which enables him to relive key moments in his past, allowing him to see his life from a different perspective. The journey that follows, leads him to his destiny, bringing a sense of peace and happiness he had never before experienced.

Touchback also stars Kurt Russell, Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men, Sweet Home Alabama),  Christine Lahti (Chicago Hope, Law & Order: SVU) and Kevin Covais (American Idol Season 5).

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.
