It’s been more than a decade since fans last saw Frank Runyeon (ex-Steve Andropolous) around Oakdale, but with the return of Dani, Steve and Betsy’s daughter, fans are curious what happened to the actor. Soaps.com is happy to report that Frank has landed in Pine Valley! He’ll take on the role of Forrest Williams, Reese’s father, in the coming months. You can read more about that here. Frank is no stranger to Daytime; after leaving Oakdale, he landed in “Santa Barbara” as Michael for a while.
It's been just over a year since fans last saw Alexandra Chando (ex-Maddie Coleman) hanging around Old Town with Luke and Noah. Soaps.com has learned that Alexandra has been cast in the new online series "Rockville, CA". The series follows a group of people around a rock-n-roll club and showcases some really hot bands.

William Fichtner (ex-Josh Snyder) has a new gig! In addition to his role on the Fox hit "Prison Break", William has taken on a new role; he is said to be shooting "Night and Day".
