It might take eagle-eyed soap viewers or a high-powered telescope to confirm, but it appears that daytime legends Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) and Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, All My Children) are in the new film Joy, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert DiNero.

Somebody over at Soaps In Depth must have super-powered vision or be checking out their movie trailers on a monster television set, because a staff member managed to spot what looks like a very teeny tiny Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) in the new teaser trailer for Joy, the upcoming Hollywood flick starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert DiNero.

Based on the life of housewife-turned-inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), the film is set for a Christmas 2015 release, and trailers have just begun making the Internet rounds. Lo and behold, it appears as if Benard is on the television in the background of a scene in which Lawrence's Joy is scrubbing the floor. And if you look a little closer, it almost appears as if Lucci is opposite him, on the right. And wait, is that Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby, The Young and the Restless) standing behind her? The soap stars are multiplying!

Take a closer look at the trailer below, and let us know if you think Benard, Lucci, and/or Goddard are in fact featured in the trailer or if you think our eyes are just playing tricks on us.

Do you think Benard, Lucci, or Goddard will be featured in Joy? Or do you think it's just soap lovers' wishful thinking? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
