News Brief

New York Daily News: Chris Stack has been cast to replace fired actor Nathaniel Marston on ABC's "One Life to Live." Stack previously appeared on "As The World Turns" in July 2006 as Walt.

Entertainment Weekly: Awww. Poor us. Cameron Mathison will not be dancing in a thong during the season 5 semifinals. It's a shame, because after he went commando under tight khakis for Monday night's jungle boogie, a thong was really the "All My Children" star's only reasonable next step. Instead, I hope he will at least replace Donny Osmond as the man who gets to stand in the front row and cry after Marie Osmond dances. It'd be so (form-) fitting. No one on set seemed that shocked when Tom called Cameron's name to go home, least of all Superman himself. In fact, the whole final segment was downright pleasant! Cameron said like 17 nice things, Samantha finally released the Edtya cap on her precious microphone, and the farewells weren't harshly cut off for time the way they usually are. Which was great, because the more times I get to replay extended footage of Maks mussing up Cameron's hair on Cameron's way down the stairs (because he couldn't reach through the sea of arms to offer a friendly shoulder slap), the better. FYI, that's at 0:59:23. Worth a rewind!

Broadway World: Ensemble Studio Theatre proudly announces the World Premiere of On The Way to Timbuktu, a new play written by and starring Petronia Paley ("Another World", "Guiding Light"), directed by Talvin Wilks. Performances begin December 6 as a limited engagement through December 21 only. Ensemble Studio Theatre is located at 549 West 52nd Street (between 10th & 11th Avenues).

Digital Spy: "EastEnders'" Executive Producer Diederick Santer has revealed which classic character he would most like to see back in Walford. Following last month's announcements that Patsy Palmer and Sid Owen are to return to Albert Square as Ricky and Bianca in the New Year, the BBC soap chief has his eyes set on another blast from the past – Simon Wicks. Speaking to Inside Soap, Diederick teased: "I'd love to see what he's like today. What is this golden boy, who had the world and the women of Walford at his feet, doing now? Has he delivered on his early promise?"

Metro UK: Julianne Moore made her small-screen debut playing a pair of sisters on US soap "As The World Turns" and now has four Oscar nominations under her belt for her roles in films such as Boogie Nights, The Hours and Far From Heaven. Her first children's book, "Freckleface Strawberry", about the troubles of being a ginger-haired child, is out now, published by Bloomsbury.
