Sucks that he's on ATWT. So he won't be coming between Noah and Luke? But he's gay? Yeah, I don't believe that for one second.

Update from SOD website:

http://soapoperadigest.com/news/breaking/

ATWT Casting News

Soap Opera Digest has learned exclusively that Forbes March, who won hearts as OLTL's Nash, is joining ATWT on July 14 as Mason, Noah's college advisor. "Mason's gay, too, so we have that in common. And we'll see where it goes!" says March. The actor is aware of the strong "Nuke" contingent out there. "Well, having received death threats when I played Nash and I had to deal with Antonio fans, I think Iím ready for them," he cracks. For the full story, see the next issues of Digest and Weekly.

LMAO! So true. I'm happy for Forbes but I wish it wasn't ATWT. I can't see myself investing in another P&G soap.

LOL! I don't think so. I think what March was saying was that Mason is gay and so is Noah, and they have a past together with Mason being Noah's professor, and the fact that they're both gay makes even more that they have in common.

Forbes isn't gay but he played gay in my film, out on DVD now! (shameless plug)

I'm looking forward to this storyline if it's actually more than a few episodes. ATWT has started telling stories in 5 to 10 episode arcs and that's NOT how to write a daytime soap.

Here's a summary of the full SOD article.

Almost a year after leaving OLTL as Nash, Forbes March has been hired to play Noah's college professor, Mason, on As The World Turns.

"It's crazy. They were looking for somebody and I was looking for a job," laughs March. "It was simpatico. My very first audition here in New York was with Chris Goutman. It didn't work out; I ended up going over to All My Children. But I've always wanted to work for him because I got a really great impression of him. I've done AMC, OLTL and now I'm on ATWT. If this job ends, I guess I'm going back to med school."

As for Mason, "There's not much to give away," shrugs March. "I'm only on my second day and you know how soaps are. They keep the cards close to the vest at the beginning and feel it out. But I'm playing the faculty adviser of Noah. Mason's gay too, so we have that in common. And we'll see where it goes!"

Forbes is aware of the strong "Nuke" contingent out there. "Well, having received death threats when I played Nash and I had to deal with Antonio fans, I think I'm ready for them," he cracks.

Is there a chance that Mason will split up the popular pair? "No, there's going to be three gay characters on one show, and one of them will have no connection to the other two," he says. "That's my assumption going into this. It's going to be a completely professional, platonic relationship. I'm going to be strictly his academic adviser. So they're both gay? So what? Is this 1950? Do all gay men hook up just because they're gay? I thought we'd moved past that! I mean, seriously, people. A little bit of maturity."

Thus far, March is impressed with hos the show has handled the storyline with Luke and Noah. "One of the reasons I'm so excited to be a part of this is because I think they've done such a good job of writing that relationship," he praises. "They didn't cliche it in any way. They did it very truthfully and honestly and well, I think it merits being so popular and I'm looking forward to working with the guys."

He does add, "My daughter is going to be very confused." March first airs on July 14th.

Of all the soaps, why, WHY did ATWT have to be the one to use my name? LoL. And with such an underwhelming actor, no less. He's already played a character with my middle name (Scott), and now this? Sorry Forbes, but you'll never be ME. :P
