Cameron Mathison who is visiting the Big Apple for the final date of A Tribute to Pine Valley personal appearance series tonight stopped into TV Guide.com’s studios to discuss the latest on Prospect Park and how he would like to see All My Children going forward online.

During the video segment, Mathison reveals that his long time on-screen love interest, Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) is open to … possibilities, in terms of Prospect Park and Cameron encourages,  “I would say to the fans to try to be patient.”

Cameron also says that the reports that Susan Lucci is not joining All My Children online is not a done deal, and that Prospect Park and Susan are still in contact.

One of the more interesting things in the interview is that Mathison had a idea that when AMC premieres online it should jump the story five years ahead from where it was left on network TV.

So what do you think soapers? Would it be cool to fast forward Pine Valley five years when its online? Let us know! For now watch the video segment with Cam!

I’m starting not to care anymore…. It’s two months until January, and we the fans still have no clue of what’s going on with AMC. I know I should be patient, but it’s getting harder and harder to accomplish that. This whole not knowing who is signing on and who isn’t, doesn’t build intrigue….it just makes me furious. I’m mad that AMC was cancelled in the first place, but this not knowing is just making it worse. Get on the ball PP and get us informed!!!

Don’t think I agree on the 5 year jump. We left a great cliffhanger. We want to see what happened with the shot AND Cara’s baby. Also want to see David find happiness with Cara and baby Cara/David. Ohhh I just can’t wait to see it period! I miss AMC!

I love Cameron and I am happy that he did this interview. I know most people don’t care for Greenlee and Ryan but I loved both of them under the right writers. I really want to hear more actors signing on, especially Susan Lucci.

Duh big no to 5 yr jump. We need our soap to continue as promised in the most recognizable way with the majority of the current cast and story lines. These story lines were not wrapped up period. Jr who did he shoot? Cara/David falling in love? Baby on way what will happen David continue on good side or slide back as usual to Dr. of Doom. Regardless a 3 mth waiting period and then a 5 yr jump would be way too much of a transition for AMC. The fans want to recognize and need to re-connect with this… Read more »

And what about David’s other secret save besides Stuart? The woman who was in the room with Dixie wearing the bracelet with a B on it? We have to know who else was saved by Orpheus!!! Again we want our soap back and recognizable as possible. We have already been cheated out of 3mths of viewing bring it back as close to the day it left as possible!

No, a five-year jump is a really bad idea. I sincerely hope they continue from the point of the cliffhanger and that they retain as many original actors as possible. AMC needs to shift as seamlessly as possible, without gimmicks. I will definitely be watching.

No jump ahead! I want it to follow up right from where it ended with the gunshot. I also want to see David & Cara’s romance develop & have David end up delivering their beautiful little bundle of joy. I hope we’ll soon be hearing about more developments such as all the other actors being signed on or at least most of them.

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.
