A cryptic casting call recently went out for a television show about soap grads hoping to return to daytime. "At this time, we can't really divulge much about the project," the industry notice said. "We are just looking for those who had contract roles on soaps and might be interested in returning to one. [Candidates must be] recognizable as former soap stars, not day players."

Hmm... Sounds like it should be called I Wanna Be a Soap Star... Again. My short list of personal picks for ex-daytimers who oughta get back in the suds: Actor-turned-artist Thom Bierdz (ex-Phillip Chancellor III, Young and the Restless), Extra correspondent Michael Corbett (ex-David Kimball, Y&R), the feisty Roberta Weiss (Flame, Santa Barbara) and the fabulous Victoria Wyndham (Rachel/Justine, Another World).
