John’s judge.

TVLine is reporting that TV veteran Tamara Tunie (ex-Jessica Griffin, “As The World Turns”) will be returning to Daytime this fall. She will be in Salem for a multiple episode arc as Judge Weston. She is expected to pass judgment on John Black (Drake Hogestyn) when he’s brought to trial. The outcome of her decision could have a major impact on the future of the character.

Some viewers will recognize Tunie from her roles on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “NYPD Blue” and in films like “Snake Eyes” and “The Devil’s Advocate.”

Look for her to make her first appearance on Friday November 18.
