DC staffers heard it through the soapvine that former Days of Our Lives actress Rachel Melvin recently read for a part at General Hospital. Could she possibly be Sonny's soon-to-be SORASed daughter Kristina? Another possibility, would be Melvin doing to a temp gig as a young Claudia? Spoilers indicate the soap will be flashing back to Claw's childhood.

"I can't comment on that," says an insider.

We also hear, Greg Vaughan recently met with the people over at Days of Our Lives for a part, which didn't make Fronsie too happy! Developing...

I think it's BS. I don't see Rachel joining GH or any other soap.

I was just thinking the other day that I think Vaughan would make a great Shawn recast, but I don't see him leaving GH.

Please keep Greg Vaughn far away from Days or any other soap I call "mine."

As for Rachel/GH... meh. I wouldn't be surprised.

I wish her luck. People seemed hard on her when she chose to leave Days. I personally think it's the smartest move she's made in a year.

I can see Greg as Eric Brady, he would be perfect for that role!

Greg Vaughn?

The dude who currently plays Lucky?

Playing either Shawn or Eric?

He sucks. His acting is wooden and he has zero charisma, skill or screen presence.

Rachel Melvin and Kirsten Storms on the same show? I guess I'd have to watch GH then.

Although, I don't think that she'll be going to another soap , right now. A temp role, sure ? but nothing more for now.

Would Frons consider Melvin pretty enough for GH? I could see her GL or ATWT. As for Vaughn, I don't think he has ever worked as Lucky. Thought he was great as Diego on Y&R, and would be a welcome addition to DAYS. As Eric, I'm not so sure. I think he would be great as Shawn, but Hope would look like his sister :)

If he considers JMB a babe, then why not RM?

That was my thought when I read this.

Not that I put much faith in spumors.

Greg Vaughan would be a good Shawn D or Eric(especially) I agree. Love it, especially since I don't watch GH any more. I hope Rachel Melvin is smart enough to stay away from the horrible GH. I thought she was leaving DAYS for primetime and motion pictures. IMHO, GH would be a huge step down from DAYS as Chelsea.

If they hire Greg Vaughn they better get rid of someone. They have too many thirty something guys as it is with the addition of the Passion boys. Days has JKJ, JS, GG, EM and BD plus they have DB and SC. They best be adding some women.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't one of RM's reasons for leaving Days because she wanted to get out of soaps and try primetime and movies?

If I could see Melvin on another soap, it would be GH. I could see Frons seeing much potential in the Emmy nominated and every popular young actress.

Don't they all say that? It sounds better then saying "I had to get out of this hellhole before NBC cancels it and I have to look for a job at the same time as everyone else."

GET EM STEPH!!

I can buy Melvin on another soap because I don't see her getting many offers from primetime or film. I think what she brings to the table is unique and she will have a difficult time. Plus, toss in the economy and the networks and studios making cutbacks. I can't see it being GH though. With the rumors that Frons thinks Rebecca Herbst is not pretty enough, I can't imagine him wanting to cast Rachel Melvin. I think Melvin is pretty but if Frons thinks likes that, no way is Melvin headed for GH LOL. I would say GL but they are going away from the youth a bit. I could see her on OLTL if Frons doesn't have too much control over there. I can definitely see her on Y&R or ATWT.

As for the Greg Vaughn thing. I remember reading Vaughn is recurring now. It may have been on SON when all the rumors of cast cutting came out. Herbst and Vaughn are involved in those cast cut rumors so it would not surprise me if Greg was auditioning, especially if what I read is through and he is recurring.

As soon as I read this blurb about Greg, I immediately thought Shawn Brady. He has the right look to play Shawn but we'll see if there is anything to this.
