DOMINIC CHIANESE ("THE SOPRANOS"), REBECCA BUDIG ("ALL MY CHILDREN")
AND CAMERON MATHISON ("ALL MY CHILDREN") GUEST STAR ON "HOPE & FAITH"
"Trade Show" - Faith is obsessed with watching episodes of her old soap, but the replacement actress for Ashley (Rebecca Budig, "All My Children") and love-interest Dillon (Cameron Mathison, "All My Children") find ways to insult her on-air. Fed up with Faith's histrionics, Charley insists that she contribute to the household by finding a job. Hope takes her to Irv Miller, a cheesy, small-time talent agent played by Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior, "The Sopranos"), who immediately books her for a trade show -- but it's not the fan fest Faith imagined. Meanwhile, Hayley cheats for Sydney to make money for a Mother's Day gift, on "Hope & Faith," FRIDAY, AUGUST 27 (9:00-9:30 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 5/7/04)
