Well, it’s time to be whistlin’ Dixie! Cady McClain posted a very special message today on her website confirming that she has plans to be part of Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot! Therefore, it looks like Dixie Martin will be back in action!

Cady stated: “Since word got out that AMC/PP contacted me, I thought it was best to wait a bit until I confirmed it out of respect for the fact I am still sorting out the details of the situation. However, I feel confident in telling you that I will be a part of the AMC Internet Re-boot. I am very excited about the possibilities for the show in this medium and want to help give it every chance at success.

As you probably know by now, I am fascinated with all the many possibilities for creative expression that the Internet has to offer. I have a feeling the show will find many new opportunities for connecting with fans and I look forward to being a part of that as well.

I am also thrilled that Ginger Smith, who has worked on AMC for as long as I can remember, is finally getting the chance to helm the show. There are few people that know and love AMC as much as Ginger. I know for a fact she is doing everything in her power to make the show as wonderful for the long time fans as she possibly can.   Thank you all so much for your well wishes and support.”

So after hearing directly from Cady, are you more excited about the AMC reboot? What story do you think the writers should put in place for Dixie?  Let us know!

Actually, having the 3 time back from the dead, Dixie back is repulsive to me YUCK.

She is very hard to tolerate and without Tad to hold up the always way too needy uneducated no career Dixie, she is rather useless..
Just what will she do? Work at the car wash LOL 🙂
Maybe she will die and come back from the dead for the 4th time LOL the Dixie character does that very well LOL ..

Anyways, I am not pleased, but what can ya do ..

How ridiculous Tad floundered around with out her.She NEVER should have been killed off with those stupid pancakes after all the trouble to return her to the series.I’ll watch Dixie run the car wash or the chicken shack perhaps.
Tad will probably be back too.

Tad fell in love with Cara without Dixie around lol
And he gathered friends and family to tell them all he had fallen in love with Cara and he gave a great speech good’bye to Dixie :)..
Tad was reborn and alive again and happy with Cara 🙂

Since Cara is back I do hope they rekindle the heat/love of Tad and Cara 🙂

Looking forward to Tad and Cara!!

Yes because he believed that she was dead.If you had the chance to have someone back that you lost to death,it would be UBELIEVABLE, to think you wouldn’t take it.

I had forgotten about her Breakfast of Champions, the Poisonous Pumpkin
Pancake Caper – that was an all time low in stupidity LoL – but she’s
wonderful in the role of Dixie, just keep her away from the Breakfast table.

I’m sorry, I can’t remember, were they Pumpkin Pancakes (yuck) or were they Peanut Butter Pancakes (double yuck) – at any rate, I know they were intended for Babe but Dixie ate ’em instead. What a way to go – but she came back…again…and again…and again….

Since the casting seems so sketchy thus far I am happy to see that Dixie will be back as portrayed by Cady. True, her character has come and gone a few times too many to count, but I am glad that more familiar faces are beginning to emerge. There will be a new J.R., and that’s all right since there’s really no choice considering the actor (Jacob Young) most known for playing him is contracted to another show – so I hope that having the characters of Dixie, Angie, Jesse, the evil Dr. Hayward and Opal as played by the… Read more »

A Cara/David/Dix tri, without any Martin men around, works for me! 🙂 If Cara thought Tad’s bond with Dix was unbreakable, her dealing with David’s obsession for Dix and coming out on the other side with him and their child will finally cure him of it!

I’ll be happy to see Dr. David and Cara back too! As for Dixie, I’m having a hard time figuring out how Cady comes back again as Dixie. 🙂

If MEK isn’t returning, I’d be just as happy with a new Tad finding a new love, who just looks like Dixie. 😉

I read that Micheal Knight was busy with other things and didnt want to return to his role as Tad. im still happy to at least get Cady back as Dixie. like her or not you still need some of these vets tied to the shows history otherwise with too many newbies what would be the point of bringing AMC back if its going to look like a totally different show. You might as well rename it All My Different Children. If they did get Tad back, having him eventually reunite with Dixie would be just fine with me.

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.
