I’d love to see Darnell back in a soap, and I’d love it even more if some of his former AMC cast mates would join him. I miss seeing that talented cast in a serial drama. I know Darnell is back in NYC these days and if some of the other east coast-based soap actors would join him, I’d be thrilled.


i am excited that meg kelly is in talks with darnell – he is such a phenomenal actor!!


oohh this good!
I’m sure he will not wanted as with Y&R..

geezz Y&R brought in one of the renowned super couples of all time; Angie and Jesse..
The powerful actress Debby Morgan; Y&R turned her into drug addict Hilliby..
Darnell was turned into a physical therapist, not much..
They were used as bait to bring in viewers and then let go..
Neighbor Emma has spoken!!


Go get ’em Darnell !… Wish you the best !! 🙂

I wouldn’t blame Darnell if he’s a liitle skeptical of online soap ventures. He probably still has his doubts due to Prospect Park.


Prospect Park was attempting to bring established TV/broadcast soaps to the web in their original format…
Sudsville is created for the web, it will do well..
A web series hit, for sure!!

hope it gets more soap stars as time goes by..


This is great news. I’d love to see Darnell Williams at work again. He’s terrific.


Darnell Williams is a friggen gem of an actor. When he appeared in Pine Valley as Jessie Hubbard us AMC fans knew that they were seeing something different, something special, but more importantly, something important. Suffice to say, when Jessie appeared on screen, us white suburbanites and somewhat insulated teenagers, sat up and paid attention. Damn, was he something–he was the lightening in our world which jolted us to attention. And he still is…or could be if someone gave him a chance.
I was disappointed that Y&R did not use him to his fullest potential.
And while I am happy he found a job, I wish something more worthy of his talents would come his way.
But as my high school drama teacher used to say,”There are not small parts, only small actors.” Darnell will make this part sing as he always does.

I love gh

Harry- I couldn’t agree more. He really is one of the best actors out there. I’d never seen anything like him on screen when he was on AMC, and every time he’s on, I make a point of watching.

GH should bring him on as the new commissioner or a WSB agent.


Mr. Williams is so authentic and genuine in his portrayals. He and Debbi Morgan are gold together. I would forget I was watching a TV show, they are so genuine.


I wish the 1st season were more than 5 days..
I already want more knowing Darnell will be on my screen, once again..

(he should be connected to TJ and Jordan)


I love that darnell is back on a soap opera is great news to hear way to go darnell


As a lifetime supporter of Darnell Williams, I just want to see him back in front of a camera, bringing his brilliance to life in his characters he portrays. He is gifted, for sure. He and Debbi need to do a play together. I have the utmost respect for him. He is so great.


I have Always loved DW so of coarse, I am beyond excited about the possibility of seeing him in his element again!! I was hoping he would be offered a role in one of Tyler Perry’s projects. I will most definitely be watching this new show if Darnell is involved!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
