Ryan Murphy has added another stellar actor to his line-up with the addition announced today via The Wrap of former All My Children alum and Julliard grad, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon) to the cast of his FX anthology series, American Horror Story: Freak Show!

Murphy made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday stating: “Thrilled to announce the very talented FINN WITTROCK has joined the cast of Freak Show!”   However, no character information as to whom Finn will play has been announced at this time, as per usual with the series!

It comes as no surprise that Murphy should choose Finn as the two worked together on HBO’s The Normal Heart!

The upcoming American Horror Story: Freak Show, is set in 1950’s Florida (although shooting is going on in New Orleans) and will bring back cast members including Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters along with new series star Michael Chiklis!

What do you think of the success Finn has found in primetime and movies?  Let us know!

Great actor! Enjoyed watching him on AMC! I had to stop watching the reruns of AMC because I get so sad and depressed. Still boycotting ABC! I will never forgive ABC.

ABC has the very best primetime soaps. awesome..!!
You should boycott ABC daytime, and not prime time..
AMC was canceled by the daytime peoples not by primetime..
ABC has different departments.. It is huge..
It was the daytime suites that had AMC canceled.. Not ABC in the whole, actually..
They/daytime suits recommen, do their job and ABC does what they recommend..
you are missing some really great primetime soaps, for sure..

You need to get over it, AMC deserved to get cancelled. The ratings were falling and the writing was terrible. One Life to Live was a good soap, the ratings were getting really good, but they got cancelled because of Brian frons. I am over it now, The Chew is getting better ratings, than AMC. I hope you are watching other soaps. I watch GH, Days Of Our Lives and The Young and The Restless. We all should be happy to have 4 soaps remaining on air.

The only reason Oltl was going up in ratings was because AMC folks were watching to try to show that we want our soaps. Please stop trying to make it a contest between our soaps. We need to be a team. I loved AMC and you loved OLTL. We are both sad! We need both of them back! I don’t see it happening because our actors are scattered everywhere now. I do wish someone would rerun our shows from the beginning. I would watch even though there are chunks missing. I watch Y&R. It concerns me that The Chew has… Read more »

He stole the show in “The Normal Heart,” in my humblest of humble opinions …. but good gravy, could you have chosen a worse picture of him?!? Jeesh!

He was amazing in “The Normal Heart,” as was fellow daytime vet Matt Bomer.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
