DaxGriffin (Justin McCoy, AMC)Dax Griffin Heads to Pine Valley!

Fresh off a cameo stint on Passions, the Sunset Beach alum, Dax Griffin is crossing coasts for a recurring role on All My Children. Griffin will play Justin McCoy, a hot shot lawyer who's turned down several offers to work with Pine Valley's legal eagle, Jackson Montgomery.

"We took this risk because it is so difficult to get into daytime now," says Griffin's manager, Michael Bruno. "But I believe Dax will become a permanent fixture [at AMC] very quickly. He's an amazing actor, and he could become the next big star for ABC [daytime]."

Griffin first airs on Aug. 15. Also, joining the cast at AMC is Guiding Light alum Peter Hermann (ex-Michael) who makes his return to daytime as attorney Wayne Kabak. Look for the actor to premiere Aug. 22.
