Pelphrey to Return to GL

Emmy winner Tom Pelphrey will return to Guiding Light in 2008. The actor debuted on Guiding Light in 2004 before exiting in 2007. He's made a brief return since exiting the role.

Tom Pelphrey (Jonathan Randall) will return to Guiding Light in 2008. The actor returns to the show so that Jonathan can tend to some "unfinished business."

"Look for him in the new year when Jonathan comes back to resolve some unfinished business," a Guiding Light spokesperson teased in confirming Pelphrey's impending return.

It is unclear how long Pelphrey will stick around. Pelphrey joined the cast of Guiding Light in September 2004. After winning an Outstanding Younger Actor trophy at the Daytime Emmys in 2006, Pelphrey announced that he would soon be exiting the show. Pelphrey stuck around a little longer than expected before finally exiting in February 2007. The actor was lured back to the show for a three-day appearance in July and August, a return that helped to wrap up some loose endings for his character -- and coincided with the release of a book about Jonathan's life

In September, Simon and Schuster published a book chronicling Jonathan's life after he staged his death. The book, "Guiding Light: Jonathan's Story," is still available in select bookstores and through online merchants. [Click here to order the book online via

Pelphrey makes his debut the week of January 21st. The show declined to comment on the length of the actor's return.
