Billy Magnussen Debuts as Sigourney Weaver’s Boy Toy in 'Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike'

Have you missed seeing Billy Magnussen (pictured above with co-star David Hyde Pierce) and his ripped body since As the World Turns ended its run? If so, now is your chance to see him strip to his skivvies once again during the run of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre.

Magnussen plays Masha’s (Sigourney Weaver) boy toy Spike, who has a propensity for abandoning most of his clothes, in the play that opened November 12.

Theater Mania weighed in on Magnussen’s role,

Life gets temporarily upended when Masha unexpectedly shows up one day – with decades-younger boy-toy Spike in tow (the extraordinarily fit and often semi-dressed Billy Magnussen). She has returned ostensibly to attend a neighbor's costume ball, but also to deliver the shocking news that she has decided to sell the family homestead in order to cut down on her own expenses.

Soap Alums Billy Magnussen and Meghann Fahy Join Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt Tonight in The Lost Valentine!

Soap fans are in for a treat tonight on CBS. In the Hallmark Hall of Fame flick The Lost Valentine, Jennifer Love Hewiit portrays Susan Allison a journalist profiling Caroline Thomas (Betty White), an elderly woman, whose husband was declared MIA during World War II.

America's Grammy isn't the only star with soap cred to appear in the film. That's As The World Turns' Billy Magnussen (ex-Casey) playing White's husband Neil in flashbacks, while a young Caroline is played by none other than recent One Life to Live psycho teen Meghann Fahy (ex-Hannah). CBS should really put Magnussen and Fahy on a holding deal until they find the perfect, weekly project for these two amazing, young stars. I can't wait to check out The Lost Valentine tonight at 9/8c. Watch the trailer after the jump! READ MORE

SNAPSHOTS: One Life to Live Newcomer Josh Kelly Checking Out Tom Degnan's Band

It looks like One Life to Live’s Tom Degnan is making friends at his new TV home. OLTL newcomer Josh Kelly and former star Meghann Fahy (pictured with Degnan above) popped up at a performance of Reserved for Rondee, Degnan’s band with As the World Turns alum Billy Magnussen.

You may remember Kelly was originally slated to take over the role of Joey Buchanan before OLTL decided to cast Degnan in the role and give Kelly a different contract role. Former Guiding Light star Bonnie Dennison and boyfriend Matt Lowenthal also attended the December 17 gig at Fontana’s Bar in New York City.

Bernard's "World" View: In Defense of Christopher Goutman

Several days ago, I posted an entry about the fallout from the death of Dr. Reid Oliver (Eric Sheffer Stevens) on As The World Turns. There were three central ideas in that piece. First, despite the very legitimate complaints that any given fan might have, ATWT is providing great human drama here at the end of its run. Second, Reid’s tragic passing and donation of his heart to Chris (Daniel Cosgrove) encapsulated that goal mainly by thrusting the Hughes’— the show’s core family since its very debut— front and center toward its conclusion. Third, given the soap opera wrapped production months ago, the idea of kicking a dead horse with unrelenting criticism isn’t going to make it win the Kentucky Derby.

I have not budged one iota from any of those positions and I am about to incur the wrath of a whole lot more of you by making what I know will be a very controversial statement to many: I believe that in these final days, executive producer Christopher Goutman has made mostly the right decisions.
