Colin Egglesfield was killed off All My Children in January.
But it hasn't taken long for the former Josh Madden to find work.
Egglesfield is the latest actor to join The CW’s Melrose Place remake. On the upcoming spin-off, he'll play Auggie, an avid surfer that works as a sous-chef at a restaurant.
Other members of the new Melrose Place cast include Michael Rady, Katie Cassidy, Ashlee Simpson and Jessica Lucas.
