Tennis Double-Faults Days and Passions

It's that time of year again -- fireworks, hot dogs and beer. Oh, and an NBC daytime pre-emption for the Wimbledon. On Thursday, July 5 and Friday, July 6, Days of Our Lives and Passions will not be broadcast due to Wimbledon coverage.

(I know the accompanying picture is an image of the movie Wimbledon, but Paul Bettany is way hot, so I had to post his pic.)

Casting News Galore!

Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital) returns on July 13 to convince an ailing Eli Love to let Noah Drake (Rick Springfield) perform in his place at a charity concert. She is scheduled to for a short-term summer stint, but rumors are flying that she is considering a full-time return to daytime as her character becomes involved with Noah.

Schae Harrison (Darla, The Bold and the Beautiful) is back, at least in spectral form. As we all know, her character died in a heartbreaking hit-and-run car accident, which involved her best friend Taylor. Darla will appear to Thorne while he is in “an altered state.” Her two-day appearance is scheduled for the end of July.

Rumors are running rampant that Tom Pelphrey might return to the role of Jonathan on Guiding Light. Insiders at the show have suggested that Pelphrey has been in talks with top brass at GL and that a return might be on the horizon later this year. While nothing is written in stone until the ink on the contract has dried, the renewed speculation has GL fans very happy and hopeful.

Adrian Bellani (Miguel, Passions) has opted not to renew his contract with the show in order to pursue other professional options. He joins James Stevenson (Jared) and Silvana Arias (Paloma) as some of the core cast members who have chosen not to make the move to DirecTV. A spokesperson at Passions has suggested that the role of Miguel will likely be recast some time down the road.
