In a tantalizing bit of casting news, it looks like former supermodel Paulina Porizkova is going to be making her way to Oakdale. The Czech beauty has appeared in more than a dozen films and several Primetime series, as well as acting as one of the judges on America’s Next Top Model. She will be playing a woman named Clarissa over four episodes. It looks like the character is a conwoman who shared a past with Simon (Paul Leyden), who is due to return this month.

How will she shake things up in town? We’ll have to wait for awhile to see. Porizkova is scheduled to make her premiere on As The World Turns on January 5, 2010.
