Syfy has cast former As the World Turns star Jennifer Ferrin in the two-hour pilot Rewind. According to Deadline, Ferrin joins Keisha Castle-Hughes, Robbie Jones and Keon Mohajeri in the time travel based vehicle about “a team of military field operatives and civilian scientists who must use untested technology to travel back in time to alter past events in order to change the future and avoid a devastating terrorist attack.”
Since leaving ATWT, Ferrin has appeared in such primetime series as Life in Mars, Royal Pains, The Good, Fringe, White Collar, Nurse Jackie and The Cape.

Former As the World Turns star Jennifer Ferrin, who stars in NBC’s new comic book series The Cape, was also there with onscreen hubby David Lyons. See more photos from the event after the jump!

As the World Turns just added Josie Driver (Kristen Connolly) to the long list of lackluster storylines, unsurprising twists and uninspired dreck that parades across my TV screen every afternoon. The common thread between 2006 and 2008 is pretty obvious to most viewers, but I can't imagine the casual viewer who tunes in on their occasional day off who wonders if this has been going on for the last two years.
I wasn't quite sure how this storyline was going to play out, but it was clear that Josie was a woman with an unknown past who resembled Dusty's (Grayson McCouch) ex-wife Jennifer (Jennifer Ferrin).

My Josie would have wandered into Oakdale, with someone spotting her resemblance to Jennifer, searching for answers to her past. Her connection to the canvas would have come in the form of Jennifer's family and would progress from there (any more fanfic would blow my main point). READ MORE
While The Young and the Restless and One Life to Live are the two must see soaps on daytime right now, our schizophrenic As the World Turns is firing on most of the right cylinders and can't be counted out of the fight. The last time I posted about ATWT, I had a great many concerns about the direction of the show and it's storylines given the supersonic speed by which they are told. In the last week however, the show has made me sit up and take notice with some interesting developments. READ MORE
Last week, in the preview for this week's Life on Mars, I spotted a face in the promo that I swore I recognized.

Ferrin, who left As the World Turns in 2006 has been busy since leaving daytime appearing on Rescue Me, 3 lbs, Killing Point, the Broadway play The 39 Steps! and is to appear in NoNAMES.
