Soap stud Austin Peck will join the cast of One Life to Live later this year. In doing so, the actor will be reunited with his former As the World Turns co-star -- and real-life love interest -- Terri Conn (Aubrey Wentworth).
A One Life to Live spokesperson has revealed a scant bit of information about Peck's alter ego -- the name. Peck will play the newly created role of Rick. The rest of the details about Rick are still being kept under wraps by the show, and it is unclear if Peck and Conn will have any on-screen interaction.
Peck appeared as Brad Snyder on As the World Turns from 2007 through 2009, when his character was killed off in a tragic shooting mishap. Before that, Peck was known to Days of our Lives viewers as Austin Reed. Peck appeared on DAYS from 1995 through 2002. He left the show for a period of three-and-a-half years, returning for a yearlong run from September 2005 to October 2006.
Peck reports to work at One Life to Live on January 31. A first airdate has not yet been announced.
