This month, several actors will be gracing As the World Turns in order to stir up the drama or possibly brew more trouble.  Among those joining the residents of Oakdale are Dominic Fumusa, Eric William Morris, and Tala Ashe.

Warning: May contain spoilers.

Fumusa, whose credits include CSI: Miami, The Sopranos and Bones, is slated to make his debut in early February to play the role of Gray.  According to CBS, he'll be portraying a big part in Vienna (Ewa Da Cruz) and Henry's (Trent Dawson) continued happiness.

Morris, on the other hand, will appear as Matt starting February 11.  His character will be included in Casey's (Billy Magnussen) return to Oakdale.

Last but not the least, Ashe joins the cast of As the World Turns as Ameera, who arrives in town as the link to both Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann).  Ameera is expected to appear on Friday, February 22.

While viewers welcome these newcomers, fans will also have to say farewell to some cast members starting off with Ryan Serhant, who is set to exit As the World Turns on Thursday, February 14.  Serhant is best known for playing Evan Walsh, a character he started to portray since last August.

Additionally, Wally Kurth is also slated to leave this month.  Prior to landing the role of Sam Hutchins on As the World Turns, Kurth has been cast as Ned Ashton on the soap opera General Hospital and as Justin Kiriakis on Days of our Lives from 1987 to 1991.  In addition to appearing on television, he also has a band, Kurth and Taylor, which performed on and produced songs for General Hospital, including the 2002 Emmy award-winning song "Barefoot Ballet."

So far, there is no word yet on how both characters will disappear from the soap canvass.  Fans will just have to stay tuned to find out.
