Soaps.com has learned that Zach Roerig (ex-Casey) has jumped on the “Friday Night Lights” bandwagon!

Spencer Grammer (ex-Lucy) is beginning her third season on ABC Family’s fan favorite “Greek”. She also appeared in the film “Descent”, which follows a college co-ed who is raped and tries to rebuild her life.

With the campaigns for United States President heating up and the National Conventions converging, many stars are taking to the campaign trail themselves. Lauretta Vaughn (ex-Kit) is one of the stars supporting Barack Obama. Lauretta sang the hit “No Mountaintop” at the Street Lights benefit concert for the presidential hopeful.
