It's been four months since As the World Turns announced that it had signed former Guiding Light star Daniel Cosgrove to a contract. This month the two-time Emmy nominee finally makes his first appearance as Chris Hughes. In addition to his work on Guiding Light, Cosgrove also appeared on All My Children.

Daniel Cosgrove returns to daytime television this month, nearly six months after he made his final appearance on Guiding Light. The actor, who became a hot commodity upon the cancellation of Guiding Light, joins the cast of As the World Turns as Chris Hughes.

Cosgrove made his daytime debut in 1996 on All My Children. There, he played the role of Scott Chandler for two years before branching out to roles in primetime. In 2002, Cosgrove returned to daytime as a member of the cast of Guiding Light. During his seven-year run with the now-canceled soap, Cosgrove earned two Daytime Emmy nominations -- one for Supporting Actor in 2008 and a Lead Actor nod in 2009. It was that acclaim, coupled with a fan following and his good looks, that made several soaps express an interest in him when, in April, it was announced that Guiding Light would be going off the air.

Earlier this year, Cosgrove's name had been brought up as a possible candidate for the role of Joey Buchanan on ABC's One Life to Live. Though several soap web sites reported that Cosgrove's migration to Llanview was a done deal, for one reason or another, Cosgrove never signed his name on the dotted line.

Since that time, Cosgrove signed on to appear in the online soap, Venice: The Series, opposite former Guiding Light co-stars Crystal Chappell (ex-Olivia Spencer; Carly Manning, Days of our Lives) and Jessica Leccia (ex-Natalia Rivera). Cosgrove later backed out of the online series, citing his work schedule as the reason for his unavailability.

Cosgrove firsts air on March 11.
