Everybody's favorite "Desperate Housewives"' sexy gardener-turned-entrepreneur, Jesse Metcalfe (ex Miguel, "Passions") is teaming up with Dominic Purcell ("Prison Break") and heading to "Town Creek," a vampire horror movie that Joel Schumacher is directing. The two star as brothers on a mission of revenge who become trapped in a harrowing occult experiment that dates back to the Third Reich.  The film is slated to begin production March 1, 2007.  "Town Creek" is Metcalfe's second feature film.  This past summer he starred in "John Tucker Must Die."  Contributed by LMS

While over at "As the World Turns," looks like it's another case of easy come easy go. Although we have not gotten any official confirmation from the show, SOD is reporting in its latest issue that Spencer Grammer (Lucy) will be exiting Oakdale before the year is out.  Contributed by LMS

As previously reported at Soapdom, B&B's Amber Moore played by Adrianne Franz is on her way to Genoa City. In new developments, Soapdom has just learned that Franz will be mixing things up on "The Young & the Restless" for a six-month stint.  This is great news for soap fans, but not so great for fans of Franz's music.  Her recent foray into the cd market, "Anomaly" is finished and ready to go, but due to her return to daytime, the worldwide release of the album will be pushed back to April 3, 2007. "Though we want to get the album out for all of you fans," Franz says in her latest myspace bulletin, "we feel this is the best decision so that I can properly promote the record and do a full tour without having to worry about filming commitments for TV." Although the cd release date is being pushed, fans will be treated to some music from the album thanks to Y&R. Selections from "Anomaly" will be featured on the soap, and we'll even see Amber singing some of the material!  If you pre-ordered a copy of the cd, fear not as all pre-orders will still be honored.  In fact, those who already pre-ordered the CD will get an extra "bonus" now in addition to the signed photo when the CD is released. If you pre-ordered, you should have already gotten an email about this; if not, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . "Thank you for being patient, and see you all soon," gushes Franz.  Contributed by LMS

Judith Chapman (Gloria, Y&R)We all know that soap actors have to keep up their looks. Video tape is an extremely unforgiving medium.  Not only the women, but the men, too, have been known to get regular facials and skin treatments. Soapdom has just learned that Young and the Restless' Judith Chapman (Gloria) has taken things a step further by getting Acupuncture treatments on her face.  "Who would have thought that the ancient practice of Acupuncture could also be used as a minor facelift?" the actress states.  "The stimulating effects of the needles on the face, neck and jaw have made a noticeable difference..."   Whatever Chapman is doing is working.  She's simply gorgeous.  Contributed by LMS
