And in one of the most shocking weeks in daytime history, and we are only two weeks into 2011 folks… All My Children scene-stealer, Melissa Claire Egan (Annie) announced today via her facebook page that she is indeed leaving her role at AMC and making a move in her career, and On-Air On-Soaps also received confirmation this afternoon from an AMC spokesperson.

The talented Egan who has had one of the most juicy roles in soaps, made the following statement:  “My dear fans, After 4 and a half incredible years as a member of the All My Children cast, I have made the extremely difficult decision to leave the Pine Valley family that I have come to love and respect so much. It has been an amazing 4 and a half years for me! I have had the privilege and honor of working with the most talented and fun cast, crew, producers and directors imaginable. I have learned so much from them and am forever indebted. To wake up each morning and love going to work is a true blessing for which I am unbelievably grateful!  But after much soul-searching, I feel that it is time to spread my wings and open myself up to new challenges and adventures. And you, my beloved fans??Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate your support and encouragement over these past four plus years. You have inspired me to give my all to the ?complicated? character of Annie Novak McDermott Lavery Chandler Chandler (hehehe, it’s always fun to say that ), and I hope to have lived up to your expectations. You will always hold a special place in my heart, and I hope you will wish me well in my future endeavors!  With much love and gratitude, Melissa”

Wow! Another blow to AMC and the ABC Daytime list of stars! More on this developing story over the next several days.

Good for her! She is one of my favorites and I was hoping for her and JR to have a good s/l but I would much rather see her try other things. Good luck Melissa

Have you noticed that since AMC moved to Los Angeles, actors are leaving all the time. JR & Marissa will stay together, of course. The show wouldn’t have brought in Sarah Glendenning.

Although I have nothing against MCE, I never liked Annie and am very happy to see her go. The way she’s been marrying all the Chandler men has been ridiculous, and she has no morals. Even with all his faults, J.R. deserves better. I like the new Marissa a lot better than the mousy one and am happy to see Danny Cosgrove back as Scott. I think AMC is on the right track, but Griff & Cara need to go back to where they came from.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
