Jackson Montgomery will finally, finally get a clue, that there is something more than just business partnership, or friendship between Caleb and his gal Erica very shortly on All My Children.  Actor, Walt Willey, who has played Jack for decades, will find these two in quite the embrace on the upcoming February 1st episode. 

In the meantime, TV Guide caught up with this Pine Valley veteran to get  his thoughts on this triangle, which according to Willey, could be a quadrangle!  Here are some excerpts below.

Willey on Jack being a bit of doofus on figuring out that there is a spark between Caleb and Erica:  “Hey, watch out there! [Laughs] Jack may be dumb but he’s definitely slow. Most people, even unconscious ones, would have seen something’s up with Caleb and Erica a hell of a long time before this.”

Willey on the upcoming triangle which by all appearances looks like he is the odd-man out:  “Well, it ain’t over yet! And, actually, now that Krystal is involved, it’s really more like a big, sloppy, sharply pointed quadrangle. If you look at any of the polls, the fans really want to see Jack and Erica together but the writers don’t seem to come up with a story for them as a couple. They’re Moonlighting, they’re Nick and Nora, as clever and funny as can be, but it’s always the Sturm und Drang that carries us away.”

I’m tired of this “pro-Jerica” rant. How boring is that?? Erica is a beautiful, desirable woman; why should she stay with only one man? I love the Caleb/Erica pairing. The actors also know that a storyline of marriage to one person is the kiss of doom;everybody’s just gets bored except some housewife. What can you do with that? Show them at dinner, at a party, in bed. Ho hum. As for Caleb, it’s been commented he is “haughty and acts mad, not friendly”.
Hello. That’s the character he was HIRED to play. He just came back into society after decades. We can watch as he changes. JEEZ, who are these people who want the same character over and over with a different face???

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.
