This summer, AS THE WORLD TURNS alum Daniella Alonso (Pilar) is just one of several daytime stars who’ll be heating up TNT’s primetime detective drama, RIZZOLI & ISLES. In the episode titled “Cuts Like A Knife,” airing Tuesday, July 24, at 9 p.m. ET, Alonso will debut in her recurring role as Riley Cooper, a new neighbor of Jane’s who captures the attention of Angela, Frankie, and Frost. “I can’t share details because there’s a twist to my character,” Alonso teases. “It’s been a blast to be on the show… I’ve been working with everybody!”
Then on Tuesday, August 14, at 9 p.m. ET, in the episode “Melt My Heart To Stone,” she’ll be joined by Eddie Cibrian (ex-Matt, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS), who returns as Dennis Rockmond — the hunk who pulled a disappearing act on Maura in June — and Colin Egglesfield (Josh, ALL MY CHILDREN), who plays Jane’s screw-up brother, Tommy.
