First Picture of Julianne Moore's Soap Stint Not Nearly as Meta as James Franco's


Daytime soap operas may be on their way out as a tenable format, but if they're going down, they're going to go down swinging. The almost 54-year-old soap As the World Turns will shut its doors this fall, but before then, producers have taken a page from the James Franco playbook by reenlisting Julianne Moore, who got her start on the show playing twins Frannie and Sabina Hughes. Still, now that the first still has been released from her one-day return to the series, we can't help but wonder where all the Franco-esque flourishes and double meanings are. Don't be afraid to channel your inner Wiseau, Julianne. A Washington Post op-ed could be yours for the taking! [Soap Opera Digest]
