Casey Hughes returns to As the World Turns on Tuesday.

This time, of course, the character will be portrayed by actor Billy Magnussen. He's an alumnus from the N.C. School of the Arts and was recently featured in the Winston-Salem Journal.

Magnussen is the sixth actor to play Casey since the character was born in 1991.

“This is a character that just got released from jail, who’s had gambling troubles and who’s stolen money,” he told the newspaper. “There’s scandal and intrigue happening. It’s a fun plot line to play.”

Magnussen, 22, got into acting when he was a high-school student in Cumming, Ga. “I was a big jock,” he said. “In wrestling I tore a hamstring and couldn’t take gym classes. So I took an acting class, and I fell in love with it.”
