Casting News!

Heather Tom, formerly Victoria Newman of The Young and the Restless, is coming to The Bold and the Beautiful as Katie Logan. Look for Storm, Brooke and Donna's baby sis to make her debut next month (Aug. 2007). Insiders say that she has inked a 6-month contract, but hopefully, everyone involved will decide to make it long term.

Real-life husband and wife Justin Bruening and Alexa Havins will vacate their roles, Jamie and Babe, when their contracts are up with All My Children. No word yet on whether either of the roles will be recast. Also leaving Pine Valley is Kelli Giddish, who plays Di.

Returning to The Young and the Restless for the Aug. 17 episode will be Billy Warlock, who plays Ben, Jack's former campaign manager.

On Passions, John Reilly will appear once more as the evil Alistair Crane on Aug. 20.

And finally, Hunt Block (ex-Craig, As the World Turns) is coming back to daytime in the form of an FBI agent on One Life to Live. His character has yet to be named, and we don't know exactly what part he will play in the lives of the Llanview folk. But, yay! Hunt is back!
