A little birdie has told me that Stacy Haiduk (ex-Hannah, All My Children) has been cast in the role of Smilin' Jack's (Peter Bergman) new love interest and has already started taping scenes. No word yet on when they will air.
The latest edition of Soaps In Depth is reporting that Mackenzie Browning, the beloved granddaughter of Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), will be heading back to town in March. As it was reported by yours truly last week, the rumor mill was hinting that a character named Alex was a smokescreen for either Mac or a replacement for Colleen. No word yet on who's taking over the role again, but stay with Daytime Confidential for the latest updates.
