The curtain came down on a fantastic 7-year run for ABC Daytime Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS event last night in New York when the stars of All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live headed to the stage to sing, dance, and perform their hearts out to a packed crowd.

We hear that over $301,000 was raised for this year’s event and that during the entire run of this special one night showcase, the event has now raised over $1.8 million towards the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Kudos to All My Children publicist, Michael Cohen for creating the ABC Daytime salute, and this year there were some fresh faces plus some of the regular ABC Daytime superstars who served up an entertaining evening.  Some of the highlights included: GH’s Tony Geary performing, I Am What I Am from La Cage Aux Folles, Jonathan Jackson’s, Endless Night, OLTL’s Kristen Alderson performing, Trouble, and her on-screen mom, Kassie DePaiva singing, I’ll Never Fall in Love Again.  Llanview’s resident heartthrobs, David Gregory, Nic Robuck, Lenny Platt, Tom Degnan, Josh Kelly, and Mark Lawson were involved in some solo numbers, and then some of the guys took to a skit titled, “Dude, Where Is My Shirt?”  Soap fan Jan Morrison won the opportunity to perform in it by being the highest bidder on the online auction for the event.  Susan Lucci made a very special surprise appearance near the end of the show.  It is  bittersweet to have to see this powerful and creative event have to come to a conclusion, but before we do, take a look at our special photo gallery below from the red carpet arrivals to the performances that rocked the house!

I would have given everything to see Tony Geary sing “I Am What I Am” in drag no less!…

Can some of these people (Tom Degnan, Nic Robuck, and Josh Kelly) ACTUALLY carry a tune, or were they just good sports and winged it out for a special cause?

OK, so I see JK’s picture above the article! So, is this guy really a good singer if anyone was there that night at BC?

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
