From Anthony Langford's column on Afterelton: (CANT WAIT FOR THIS)
Actor Scott Evans, who was Oliver on One Life to Live until the actor was fired earlier this year in a very controversial move by ABC, has gotten a new gig. The actor will appear in the gay indie film The One, also starring Jon Prescott as Evans’ love interest. Prescott recently appeared on As the World Turns where he played Mike Kasnoff and One Life to Live where he played persistently shirtless pool boy Chad. Filming starts on the movie in June.
What is the movie about? It’s described as “a quick-witted, tender romantic dramedy about a young, successful Manhattan investment banker who lives the charmed Upper East Side Manhattan life about to marry the woman of his dreams who, a month before his wedding, meets and unexpectedly falls in love with a charismatic man from his past.”
No word on which role Evans will play, but we can tell you that Evans and Prescott will reportedly have three love scenes.
It's just a one-off part but I think he's doing a movie too.
QUOTE AfterElton.com is reporting that former One Life to Live star, Scott Evans, will have a small part in the first episode of AMC’s new series, Rubicon. They, however, caution fans of Evans’ OLTL character Oliver Fish not to expect someone like the lovable, upstanding cop.
Let's just say Scott plays pretty much the exact opposite of Oliver Fish in every way.

Scott Evans, ex-One Life to Live, also stopped for me (later telling me it was because I was cute...I'd be a terrible journalist because he could kill a baby and I'd find the silver lining after that compliment), telling me about life after soap operas and giving me the exclusive news that he's going to film a new movie in Cape Cod called Dead Reckoning. Even more interestingly, he's got a masturbation scene on an TV show that, er, coming right up.
Fish, was mentioned in yesterday's ep of OLTL. Well, to the extent that John needed to locate Natalie and I guess he asked Fish, cause Fish called him back. It totally caught me off guard, I was oh Fish! :*(

I don't think there's any possibility that Kish come back, maybe Scott, but i don't think Brett, the things were quite harsh on his part (he has all the right to be angry), and i don't think the producers let him come back (and i don't think he wants to come back either)
but why would they mention Fish if he isnt coming back? awwww this is so confusing
In the past, they've done the same thing with a character named RJ, and have even gone so far as to list him as being one of the characters of color on the show, even if he hasn't appeared on air for over a year or more. It's their little way of telling people that they have a diverse cast, and heading off charges that they refuse to write for anyone who isn't white or heterosexual. It's one of the reasons why tptb initially said that the characters weren't leaving, even though the actors had been fired.
I didn't watch OLTL beyond Kish storyline. But based on what I have seen in the writing of the show, I don't want Kish to ever come back to the show. They had their few good moment that we all remember, and let it stay that way.
I had read somewhere that Chris accidentally outed Scott and that he felt really bad about it afterward. Sorry that I don't remember where exactly I saw that. But from that article it sounded like the two of them are pretty close.
