Daytime vet Sydney Penny (ex-Julia, ALL MY CHILDREN; ex-Sam, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL; Meg, SUNSET BEACH; B.J., SANTA BARBARA) is headed to DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Salem for a seven-episode stint, reports TV Guide. The Emmy-nominated actress will debut on Monday, August 30, as Dr. Norman, a rehab center physician treating Crystal Chappell's Carly.
In other DAYS casting, TV Guide is also reporting that former MAKE IT OR BREAK IT teen heartthrob Cody Longo will join the soap as Carly's son, Nicholas. Like Penny, Long's visit will be short-lived, since Nicholas' reunion with his mom will serve to usher Chappell off the canvas in the fall. A DAYS spokesperson tells Soaps In Depth that Longo will debut on August 19.
