William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahan
It all started in the backseat of a Chevy Camaro when they were kids over 30 years ago —now they're so insanely popular they have their own army. TV Guide Magazine took General Hospital's William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn to lunch and had them explain the soap-opera phenomenon that is "Julexis."
It's a recipe for disaster! Heartthrob Scott Elrod is heading to CBS's The Young and the Restless in the contract role of Joe Clark, the ex-husband of Julia Child wannabe Avery Clark (Jessica Collins). As fans know, the marriage went south when Avery began her affair with war vet Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), but she has always felt guilty for betraying her husband and has privately hoped he's found happiness.

Once upon a time, Oscar winner and feminist supreme Geena Davis was unhappy with the gender inequality in preschool programming — so unhappy that she established the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, an organization that works within the entertainment industry to improve gender balance and reduce female stereotyping. So how come she's playing a Disney princess? Because this one kicks butt! On July 11, Davis will voice the role of Peri, an adventurous princess doll, on the Disney Channel hit Doc McStuffins (9:30 a.m./8:30c).
Not possible! It's been 20 years since Joshua Morrow joined CBS's The Young and the Restless as Nicholas Newman, the suddenly sprouted, wondrously hunky son of the nefarious Victor and his drama queen Nikki. "Man, this anniversary really makes me feel old but also very grateful," Morrow says. "This is the best job in the world and, second to my children, my proudest accomplishment. I hope to do it as long as CBS and Sony and the fans will have me. It's the ride of a lifetime." TV Guide Magazine sat down for a gab session with Morrow to go over his picks for the five most memorable, perfectly Nick-tastic scenes ever. Make sure to check out the clips!

Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Jo Frost (inset)
She's Hook'd! Jo Frost will dig back into her Supernanny bag of tricks when she lends her voice to the Friday, July 18 episode of the Disney Channel cartoon hit Jake and the Never Land Pirates (9 a.m./8c). Her role: Nanny Nell, the no-nonsense governess who took care of villainous Captain Hook when he was just a wee little lad.
"I am suddenly the coolest auntie in the world — in fact, I have achieved an unprecedented level of cool!" says Frost. "My little niece, Isabella, is a huge fan of Jake and the Never Land Pirates, and she is beside herself that I am playing Captain Hook's nanny. I have officially arrived."
Alison Sweeney, James Scott
Sami Brady is no fool. The Days of Our Lives supervixen (played by Alison Sweeney) knows that her man, EJ DiMera (James Scott), had an affair with young Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi). In fact, Sami has known about their torrid trysts for quite a while and has been playing the secret lovers like a Stradivarius violin.
Gen. Wesley Clark
Turner Classic Movies does not mess around. When execs at the oldies-but-goldies channel needed an esteemed military expert to cohost its 100th anniversary tribute to World War I, they went straight to retired General Wesley Clark, a 34-year veteran of the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense. Yes, the General knows his movies! TV Guide Magazine spoke with Clark about TCM's 43-film marathon, which appropriately kicks off on...
She may be the fairest of them all but you won't find Snow White in the new Disney XD cartoon series The 7D. This sassy, madcap take on the beloved Seven Dwarfs (premiering Monday, July 7 at 10 a.m./9c) is set in the merry but trouble-plagued kingdom of Jollywood where Queen Delightful constantly needs Snow's former cronies to save her — especially from Hildy Gloom, the fashionista witch voiced by Kelly Osbourne, who is determined to take over the royal palace and redo it in pink plaid. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Osbourne and discovered she was more than happy to show us her Disney side!
