When news first hit that the controversial novel “50 Shades of Grey” was going to be made into a movie, rumors within the daytime community started spreading: “Days of our Lives’” James Scott (EJ DiMera) was reportedly being considered for the lead role of Christian Grey, a handsome yet tormented billionaire who lures a young woman named Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) into his dark world of sexual fantasies.

Ambyr Childers got her fair share of drama as “All My Children’s” Colby Chandler — a role she played from mid-2006 to mid-2008 — but her latest role casts a shadow over anything that went down in Pine Valley: The Arizona native has been cast in NBC’s upcoming series, “Aquarius,” which follows LA Police Sergeant Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny) as he tries to track and catch infamous killer Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony).

Soap operas often feature couples who eventually trade partners within their myriad of storylines over the years, so Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine, “General Hospital”) and Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) should have no trouble with their latest challenge: They’ll be appearing on tonight’s edition of ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap,” where their wives will trade households, lifestyles and children for an entire week!

“General Hospital” fans have something to look forward to this fall: Show star William deVry (Julian Jerome) has an upcoming arc on the Hallmark series “Cedar Cove!”

"Devious Maids'" Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour) famously received a record 19 Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" before finally taking home the golden statue for the first and only time on Friday, May 21, 1999, after Shemar Moore (ex-Malcom Winters, "The Young and the Restless") declared, "The streak is over... Susan Lucci!"

She's nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal as Kristen DiMera on NBC's "Days of our Lives," and to celebrate Eileen Davidson will appear on the Thursday, June 19 edition of Hallmark Channel's "Home & Family." During her taped appearance, Davidson talks with hosts Mark Steines and Christina Ferrare about her nomination, her brief return to "DAYS' and recently signing a contract with CBS' "The Young and the Restless," where she's portrayed the popular role of Ashley Abbott off and on since 1982. She also reveals that the length of her contract with "Y&R," which includes the ability to appear on "DAYS" from time to time as well, is for two years. Both soaps are owned and produced by Sony Pictures Television.

ABC Studios has extended the cast option for its ABC pilot, "Clementine," which features "The Young and the Restless'" McKenna Grace (ex-Faith Newman) and Kevin Alejandro ("Ugly Betty"), reports Deadline.

While the series only premiered just this past week, Soap Opera Network has learned that "Days of our Lives'" Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Brady) is set to appear in at least two episodes of ABC Family's "Chasing Life," beginning with the the summer finale on Tuesday, August 18.
