John Callahan, Nicolas Coster and Lane Davies join cast of web soap

Oooh, we love such a fine round-up of news on a Monday morning ... It's a mini-"Santa Barbara" reunion. Lane Davies, our own original Mason Capwell, along with Nicolas Coster (Lionel Lockridge) and John Callahan (Craig Hunt), are part of the cast of a new web soap premiering this fall.

"Following the life of socialite Sara Garrett and the people around her, 'The Bay' is a new independent soap opera in the vein of Aaron Spelling's 1980's classic primetime hit, 'Dynasty,'" says the description on the show's home page, which includes buttons for donations.

Callahan will start out on the show, which began shooting this month, then Davies and Coster will join in subsequent chapters. Coster's character name is Frank Perkins, while Callahan is portraying Mackenzie Johnson. Davies is to-be-determined (can we offer suggestions????).

Interesting concept, this whole web soap thing. And we're detecting a rather "classic" touch on this one, complete with '80s/'90s music and '80s/'90s stars. We'll be sure to check it out.

And that's not all! Catch Callahan in this weekend's creature feature on Syfy, "Dinocroc vs. Supergator." It's 9 p.m. Eastern on Saturday. Callahan also just appeared in this month's "The A-Team."

"SB" castmate Terri Garber, meanwhile (Suzanne Collier), will return to her character Iris Dumbrowski on "As the World Turns" in mid-July.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: Patrick Duffy, our beloved Bobby Ewing of "Dallas," will appear on this Friday's episode of "Price is Right" with host Drew Carey. Catch a little more at
