It looks like Tom Pelphrey will be leaving Springfield behind and heading to Oakdale. The Emmy award winning actor has signed on for a role on fellow Procter & Gamble Soap, As The World Turns. He will be playing a bad guy named Mick. Details about the length of his stay on the series have yet to be revealed, but he is set to start shooting in the next two weeks.

Pelphrey is best known as Jonathan Randall, the troubled vagabond son of Reva Shayne on Guiding Light. After leaving that series as a regular, he’s returned for brief spots when not working on stage or auditioning for films. This will reunite him with writer David Kreizman, the man who penned most of his award winning material on that series and who created the highly popular Jonathan and Tammy romance. Could this be a repeat success?
