PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t put Ridge and Brooke together!! That ship has sailed and they have NO chemistry.
Huge mistake to suddenly stop the best love story they had with Ridge and Caroline.

I completely agree. I think Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang had a wonderful chemistry that nobody can replace. I can’t see that happening now. Like you said that ship has sailed. I can see them remaining friends for the sake of their son, but I don’t see any kind of connection when they have their scenes together. As strange as this may sound, I never cared for him as Ridge, but I loved the whole story involving Caroline, and I was so upset when they broke up. I cried during the episode of the break up. Just don’t let… Read more »

Ronn and Katherine are the ONLY Ridge and Brooke. No offense to Thorsten Kaye and his new Ridge.

I hope so. This would finaly be a good storyline but indont trust B&B to tell it. Do we even see Mya anymore?

If that’s the case, he’ll last about six weeks on the show.

Definitely would have been believable if Moss was still in the role. His scarves were just a little too precious.

We rarely see Maya now, such a shame, so much more story to tell with a trans character, instead we get constant repetitive Liam Spencer love triangles.

Ronn Moss was Ridge Forrester he was that character for 25 years . Thorsten Kaye is not Ridge Brad Bell was having a childish moment should have left the character off the canvas maybe worked the character of Thorne but this kid being brought on won’t help the ratings who will be in his group to offset him with? No offense but KKL has zero chemistry with TK he is not Ridge fold the tent admit you were wrong BB and send Ridge away

The kid hates the stupid sword ring. Definitely a Forestier, already trying to control everyone like his step-sister. (She should have gotten Quinn’s ring… WOW!!!)

Not liking this kid RJ but i understand wanting to keep parents together. However, like most fans, RM and KKL will be the only Ridge and Brooketo me. BRidge is no more. Make Bill and Brooke a power couple

This boy might be a decent actor , however, I think the casting is wrong, there is no physical resemblance, he is too short, and seems babyish. I have noticed this type of casting on other tv shows like blue blood’s Nicki , the granddaughter.

yeah Bill and Brooke are hot together and a great couple. I agree no chemistry for Boorke and the new Ridge. He is better with caroline in my opinion. No Chemistry is right! It is really sad writing that the only reason that brought RJ on is to try and reconnect his parents that have not been together in a long time. Also, last time Ridge or Brooke even saw RJ, he was a baby. He would not even remember then together.

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.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

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.
