Ricky Paull Goldin by Jim Spellman/WireImage.com
Well that didn't take long. Ricky Paull Goldin, who it was only recently announced is exiting Guiding Light when his deal runs out later this month, has been cast on All My Children in the contract role of Dr. Jake Martin.

Jake, of course, is the younger brother of Tad, and in his last two incarnations was played by Michael Lowry and J. Eddie Peck's impeccable hair. Jake's love interests have included Liza, Gillian and (of course) Greenlee.

Goldin, who cut his daytime teeth on Another World back in the day, is expected to make his AMC debut by the end of April. - Matt Webb Mitovich
