What was the point of recasting Maddie (Kelly Barrett) and Lucy (Sarah Glendening) if they're just here for a couple of weeks? Both actresses debuted during the week of Christmas and are leaving As the World Turns again next week.
But it won't stop ATWT from bringing back other characters. Alex Charak (winner of the first season of InTurn) is coming back as Casey's (Billy Magnussen) old room mate Elwood Hoffman. Also, as reported earlier, Eric William Morris will be back as Casey's old prison buddy Matt O'Connor and Paolo Seganti will be back as Luke's (Van Hansis) biological father Damian Grimaldi. At least they're not recasts!
