Scott Bryce Is Back!

I am thrilled with the latest development over at As the World Turns. Scott Bryce is back as Craig Montgomery!

The show's executive producer, Christopher Gautman, said in a statement: "We're very excited to have Scott Bryce back on As the World Turns. He brings with him an invaluable understanding of Craig and the character's rich history."

The show cast newcomer Jeffrey Meek into the role of dastardly Craig last year when Bryce was unavailable to return. However, now that Bryce's schedule has opened up, producers jumped on the chance to grab him up. He already has begun taping scenes, and his first appearance as the new/old Craig is scheduled for April 10th.

Meeks' final airing as Craig will be April 2nd.

Winner of Victoria Rowell's New Book

Last Tuesday, Daytime Dial had a contest and we now have a winner. As you will recall, the question was: Victoria recently starred alongside Samuel L. Jackson as his wife in this past winter's, Home of the Brave. What movie did they appear in together in the '90s?

The answer is, as most of you knew, Eve's Bayou. From the correct entries, we literally put the names in a hat (actually, a Chococat can koozie) and drew the winner. And that winner is: Desiree.

Thanks to all who participated, and keep checking back for future contests.
