Meet the New Casey Hughes

One sure way to tell when a soap character is being brought back is if he's suddenly mentioned by another character out of the blue. Margo Hughes (Ellen Dolan) recently hinted to husband Tom (Scott Holmes) that son Casey might be paroled in time for Christmas. Zach Roerig played Casey on As the World Turns but chose to leave when his contract was up. Thus Casey was sent off to prison for stealing Will's (Jesse Soffer) bonds.

Fast-forward a few months, and Casey will be back Jan. 29 and played by Billy Magnussen.

All I know so far about the actor is he was recently on Broadway's The Ritz, so if you have the talent to make it on Broadway, you're okay in my book.

Welcome NuCasey!
