Set those DVRs! Two of your favorite former daytime stars are about to storm two of your favorite primetime TV dramas. “I’m guest starring on ABC’s CASTLE,” reveals THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s William deVry (ex-STORM) of his role in the series’ 100th episode. Alas, deVry didn’t get to trade dialogue with fellow former soap star, Nathan Fillion (JOEY, ONE LIFE TO LIVE), whose title character is laid up with a broken leg in the tale. “I’ve known Nathan from the past, so that would have been nice, but my scenes were with Stana Katic, who plays Kate,” deVry reveals, adding, “She was great — I had fun!” Look for the lady detective to head out on her own to investigate the death of an IRS agent. “I’m playing a suspect [named Dan Renner],” deVry reveals. “He’s a millionaire, but he’s also a real douche.” The episode, titled “Plays Well With Others,” airs Monday, April 1, at 10 p.m. EST.
The actor tells In Depth that he’s already on to his next exciting project. “I’m making The Outsider, a movie starring James Caan,” he says of the crime thriller. In it, a British military contractor (played by EASTENDERS’ Craig Fairbrass) is mistakenly informed that his daughter is dead and launches an investigation. “My character is just a good dude who helps out his longtime friend (Fairbrass),” deVry offers.
Since returning from Canada, where he starred last year on a sitcom, deVry says he’s been fortunate to continue working steadily in Los Angeles and happy to be home with his girlfriend, Rebecca Staab (ex-April, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; Jessie, GUIDING LIGHT). Alas, the successful couple still hasn’t had time to relax. Staab just finished taping a guest appearance for the upcoming summer season of Showtime’s DEXTER! Look for her to play a character named Lucy Gerard in the episode airing Sunday, July 14, at 9 p.m. EST.
