SOAP PEOPLE

Dallas star Steve Kanaly has been cast as All My Children's much-talked-about (mostly negative) Seabone Hunkle. The renegade comes to town Oct. 14, and will no doubt cause trouble for his children, Del and Dixie, and his former brother-in-law, Palmer.

Kanaly's Ray Krebbs on Dallas was the most sympathetic nice-guy at Southfork. After Dallas, Kanaly had guest roles on In the Heat of the Night, Twilight Zone, Scene of the Crime and Hearts are Wild.

Jack Armstrong, best known for a 1986 stint on All My Children as Greg Nelson, will replace Kirk Geiger as One Life to Live's Kevin Buchanan; his first airdate is Nov. 8. Geiger's last airdate is Oct. 17.

OLTL's executive producer Susan Bedsow Horgan says, "We are truly sorry to see Kirk go, but we wanted to age the character of Kevin." Armstrong has also appeared on Loving, Ryan's Hope, Guiding Light and, most recently, the cable soap Eden (as B.D. Thomas).

Dennis Parlato (Clay, Loving) needed a change of pace from the Alden intrigue, and to that end is appearing in the York Theatre Company's off-Broadway play Down by the Ocean through Oct. 23.

The P.J. Barry play concerns five couples who share a beach house, and the sultry, sunbathing woman, Isabelle (Melina Kanakaredes, Guiding Light's Eleni), who lives next door. Parlato plays Dan Bailey, a man who's "been through a lot. While he enjoys the woman, he's not thrown for a loop by her the way some of the others are _ even though he likes her."

"We were in hog heaven," says Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren, The Young and the Restless), describing the experience she and her 3-year-old son, Austin, shared when they sang with Muppet supersow Miss Piggy. It was all in the name of an all-star music video version of the Fine Young Cannibals' hit She Drives Me Crazy, a single from the new album Kermit Unpigged.

The video also features Martha Byrne and Tamara Tunie (Lily and Jessica, As the World Turns), Courtney Thorne-Smith (Alison, Melrose Place), Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills, 90210) and Sela Ward (Teddy, Sisters).

To supplement his income as a non-contract player on Another World, Eddie Earl Hatch (Billy) has returned to fashion modeling and to his first love _ stunt work. He booked three movies this summer, including Die Hard III, in which he played a Central Park jogger jumping out of the way of Bruce Willis' character's speeding car. "The car wasn't as close as it looks. I've done far more dangerous things on my own to further my career as a stuntman."
