Billy Magnussen Loves Out Loud

Anyone who includes carpentry among his interests has to be quite an interesting fellow and As the World Turns was blessed with the very interesting Billy Magnussen as Casey Hughes fresh from his Broadway stage debut in the classic comedy, The Ritz, starring Rosie Perez in 2008. As a member of that cast it is particularly poignant because it was a hit originally in 1975 when the sexual mores of this country had not yet been effected by the HIV virus. This Queens native who was raised in the Deep South comes to Love Out Loud for a second time, along with other local celebrities, who are lending their names and energies to HIV and AIDS awareness—some are young people who don’t know a world without this disease. It is reassuring that this young man is involved in raising awareness as well as helping out with a fund raising effort.
