EX-SOAP STARS FIND SHOCKING NEW ROLES TO PORTRAY


After an actor’s soap career ends, it can sometimes be hard for them to find another job. However, that doesn’t seem to be the problem for two famous soap opera alums. Kelly Missal and Billy Magnussen have both landed their next big roles. Soap fans might remember Kelly Missal from her days at One Life To Live. There she played the spitfire role of Dani Manning. Soap fans may remember Billy Magnussen from his days at As The World Turns where he played the role of the-teen-trying-to-find-himself, Casey Hughes.

KELLY MISSAL’S NEW ROLE:
Kelly Missal looks like she will be having job security for awhile again. Missal is set to star in ABC’s new primetime drama, The Crossing. The Crossing revolves around refugees who are seeking asylum. Now, there is quite the crazy plot twist in this new drama. In fact, it sounds like a story that OLTL would’ve done, if they were still on the air. The refugees in the drama are actually fleeing from AMERICA! This is because this drama is set 250 years into the future and America has become a dangerous battle ground. Missal’s character is named Hannah. Hannah is one of the few survivors of the harsh conditions the refugees will face.

BILLY MAGNUSSEN’S NEW ROLE:
Billy Magnussen’s new role isn’t in the television world. Magnussen's new role comes from an exciting new movie. The movie is titled Game Night and stars Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman. The movie is a comedic murder mystery. It follows a group of couples that get together each week for a game night. However, on this game night everything changes when they find one of their friends murdered! Magnussen will play playboy Ryan. Ryan will be a friend to McAdams (Annie) and Bateman (Max). The movie does not yet have a release date.
