Newcomer Billy Magnussen has been cast in the contract role of Casey with a first airdate set for Tuesday, January 29, 2008. The role was last played by Zach Roerig (2005-2007). The character will find himself trying hard to co-exist in Oakdale as the son of Tom and Margo Hughes and ex-con Casey Hughes. Hoping to help matters, his Grandmother Lisa offers him a job.
Magnussen is a graduate of the North Carolina School for the Arts. The actor can currently be seen on Broadway in the “The Ritz,” a production of The Roundabout Theatre Company.
According to its website, The Ritz is an over-the-top comedy that takes place in a bathhouse in Manhattan. When Gaetano Proclo needs to hide from mobster Carmine Vespucci, he escapes to the Ritz. When Gaetano realizes the Ritz is a gay bathhouse and not a Turkish bath, he pretends to be a big-time Broadway producer to keep suspicions low. When Carmine locates Gaetano what transpires is wild, manic mayhem.” For ticket information and directions click here.
