Lead Actor Leaves Oakdale

Grayson McCouch (Dusty) shocked fans by not renewing his contract with As the World Turns. We know the actor took a brief leave of absence last pilot season. (The gamble almost paid off -- he was cast in a series, but it was not picked up.)

Reportedly the soap asked him to take a paycut, but the actor balked and chose to leave instead.

Tune in the week of January 14th to learn Dusty's fate.

My suggestion to "ATWT?" See if you can lure Mark Collier back as Mike or Paul Leyden as Simon -- or both.
