Now isn't this interesting.

In an interview with Knoxville News Brian Frons says that "The (writers') strike actually helped us in terms of luring these actors back to the show," says Frons. "If you aren't an actor with a steady primetime gig, you probably won't find (work) until fall of '09. So I think that gives soap operas a chance (for actors) to find steady work."

The article continues by saying "The writers' strike is about to cut into "pilot season" in Hollywood, when prospective new shows for fall shoot first episodes for network consideration.

If no new scripted primetime shows go into production soon for the fall of this year, many actors will be looking for work in alternative genres such as daytime."

This gets me thinking.

Which former daytime stars in primetime might the soaps be able to lure back the strike continues? I know that a lot of fans would like to see Josh Duhamel back on All My Children but for some reason I doubt he's going to return to daytime when he probably has some movies in the works.

Which former stars would you like see return to your favorite soap?
