It's Official: Julianne Moore Returns to 'As the World Turns'

Julianne MooreConfirming the rumor that was previously mentioned here on TV Squad, Julianne Moore will in fact be returning to the show and the Emmy-winning role that she played from 1985 to 1988. Moore is certainly at the point in her career where she can do whatever she wants, even if it's for nostalgia's sake.

This is a pretty big deal as movie stars rarely do a career step backwards, but Julianne Moore has been unconventional as of recent (thinking primarily of her '30 Rock' appearance). What if other movie stars returned to the roles that spawned them? Would Robin Williams play Mork again? What about having Bruce Willis revisit David Addison? Of course, neither of those shows are soap operas that are still in production, so the logistics would be a little tougher.

Or maybe this is just a case of a fading star trying to keep the shine going? What do you think? Sound off in the comments.

This isn't so bizarre. She was a regular on this soap when she was a younger actress. The CBS website says she's coming back for "an episode." Soaps often bring back previous actors for bits like weddings and funerals, surprise visits etc. to lend a sense of continuity and normalcy, and it's not all that unusual to see well-known actors do stints on soaps.
And I think many actors would take issue with you calling soap acting a "step backwards". The schedules are very rigorous and they are often year-round, besides. That kind of comment shows us you know little about this genre.

Well, this is the same guy who refers to an actor going to Broadway as "slumming it", so I'm not terribly surprised.
