Austin Peck is the latest - and most shocking - daytime star to feel the industry's economic crunch.
The actor has been let go from As the World Turns.
Sources say that Peck, who debut on the series in January 2007 as Jack's newly de-aged brother, will be wrapping up his stint in a startling fashion. No word yet on when his final airdate will be, but we can confirm the role will not be recast.
