Alicia Minshew is ready to move on from AMC, but would consider recurring on Prospect Park venture!

The fabulous Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater) of All My Children revealed to the The Hollywood Reporter exclusively that she wouldn’t return full-time to the soap opera when it moves to the web with Prospect Park.

Minshew stated,“I know they are starting to approach people now. If they were to come to me and ask me to do it [and] if I could work it out where I could maybe be recurring, I could pop in every now and then, I could work with these people that I love and still be a part of this. I would be open to that.”

Otherwise, Minshew tells THR she is ready for some lighter fare. “I’d love to do a sitcom. You know, but I don’t really get a chance to do stuff like that when I’m on a soap, because it’s a daytime drama, so everything is very dramatic. So, I’m really open to kind of whatever the universe is going to lay my way, whatever it is… but I’m leaning towards doing something funny in life, because I enjoy that and because I know I can do it.  I’m craving something that’s completely the opposite of what I’ve been doing.”

In regards to her TV mother, Susan Lucci’s recent explosive statement on ABC and Brian Frons for the downward spiral of Pine Valley, Minshew commented, “I knew that she did not like it, but I did not know the level at which she was… I mean, she was really pissed.  But, you know what? Good for her. I mean, for God’s sakes the woman has been on that show for so long. It has been her life. And she should feel free to say however she feels.” 

Minshew went on to state as far as she knows, Lucci has said, “No” to being part of AMC’s Prospect Park venture.

So, how do you feel about AMC without a full-time Kendall? Let us know!

I don’t get the feeling that a lot of the stars want to or intend on staying with AMC, after the move online. But being that they’ve had several months to digest this information, and that the news of PP came much later after the initial announcement….maybe a lot of the talent, had already moved on, in their minds, and have already made other arrangements for their futures. You can’t blame them for looking out for themselves, but it is going to make Pine Valley much harder to watch, if all of the fan faves check out, before the premiere… Read more »

Debbie’s gone, Jacob’s gone, Susan says no, Alicia doesn’t want to be a regular… this is not sounding good for AMC’s future. Has anyone said they would continue with the show?

Even though I am pleased AMC shall continue via Prospect Park, I instantly knew at the announcement an AMC 2.0 is coming. I do not expect to see too many legacy characters or popular actors for the long term. This saddens me, but there may be opportunity to bring back some characters/actors who have been off the canvas or to use the four decades of history to provide a strong basis for a new generation of Pine Valley stories. I remain hopeful.

I completely agree with you. AMC & PP need to go to the drawing board and research the history of AMC. There are tons of people that could come back to the canvas to breathe new life into the show. I’m just gonna throw out a few names….Brooke, Ross, Derrick Frye & Mimi (love those two), Someone from the Cordtland clan (and yes, I know Ross is a Chandler & a Cordtland…lol) Anna Devane, bring back the character of Skye Chandler…I know Robin Christopher is on GH, but you’ve recast the role before, do it now! I know this sounds… Read more »

It’s sounding more and more that this “All My Children” transition will NOT happen. Prospect Park hasn’t exactly earned much confidence among the actors. This is a shame because it’s terrible to jerk around fans like this. If the show has indeed ended, they need to state this instead of leaving things up in the air.

I can foresee a future for the show without Erica Kane or Susan Lucci. Bringing back Julia Barr, Kathleen Noone and some newbies who can actually act would be a great restart. However, the whole thing seems to be dismantling before our very eyes…

I feel the same way…. I don’t blame PP on this though. It just seems like the stars want nothing to do with this new endeavor, and I have a feeling they will regret it. Could be that most of them still have a bitter taste in their mouths from the cancellation. However, times are changing and internet programs can and most likely will be the next big thing. The same thing happened when shows transitioned from Radio to Television. Once some of them get out there and pound the pavement, with no luck, they may see that they shouldn’t… Read more »

Personally I do not think AM has the acting chops to do a sitcom. How and why she ever lasted on AMC is a mystery to a ton of fans of the show!

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
