As the World Turns has signed its second former General Hospital in the past month. Emmy winner Stuart Damon will join the CBS soap later this summer in a still-to-be-announced role. Damon portrayed Alan Quartermaine on GH for more than 30 years.

The casting coups at As the World Turns are coming just about as fast as the show's storyline resolutions. The long-running CBS soap has apparently landed yet another former General Hospital star.

Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Stuart Damon (ex-Alan Quartermaine, GH) will join the action in Oakdale by the end of the summer. Damon will be reunited with a pair of his former GH cast members, Jon Lindstrom (Craig Montgomery; ex-Kevin Collins, GH) and and Lynn Herring (Audrey; ex-Lucy Coe, GH), as well as former Port Charles stars Marie Wilson (Meg Snyder; ex-Karen Wexler, PC) and Julie Pinson (Janet Ciccone; Eve Lambert, PC).

The Emmy-winning Damon was a member of the General Hospital cast from 1977 through 2007, when his character was killed off. Alan's death outraged fans, and the show quickly drafted a storyline that had Stuart return as Alan's "ghost." In actuality, Alan wasn't a ghost but rather a visual manifestation of Tracy Quartermaine's conscience.

There's no word on who Damon will be playing on As the World Turns -- or how long he'll be sticking around. Judging by As the World Turns' taping schedule -- they're about two months ahead -- Stuart should debut sometime in late-August or early-September.

An As the World Turns spokesperson did not immediately return requests for a statement.
