It’s not only former daytime stars like (recent As the World Turns returnee) Julianne Moore and David Hasselhoff (soon to reprise his 1975 to 1982 role as The Young and the Restless‘s Snapper Foster) who are heading back to the genre that gave them their start. Broadway and TV actor Brian Kerwin has been a contract player on One Life to Live since 2007, while film stars (like James Franco and Mario Van Peebles) and prime-time actors (such as, in recent years, Betty White, Ted Shackelford, Joan Van Ark, Randolph Mantooth and Patrick Duffy) have been paying their respects, too.
But most shockingly and coincidentally, from the “What are the chances?” file, Ma and Pa Walton (Michael Learned and Ralph Waite, above) are currently and respectively guest starring on General Hospital and Days of Our Lives. Who’s next? John Boy to accompany Erica Kane on her 12th trip down the aisle on All My Children?
