Cameron Mathison Tweets That He Hopes To Be Part Of The Revival Of All My Children … Schedule Permitting!

Courtesy: Steven Bergman

Cameron Mathison took to Twitter to respond to fans and followers who were asking him, if he would indeed be part of the All My Children reboot via Prospect Park!  Mathison played Ryan Lavery from 1998 to 2011 until the series concluded on ABC Daytime.

As with many other performers from the original casts of AMC and OLTL, availability at this time could be an issue as actors are busy and committed to other projects.

However, Mathison tweeted the following:  “I’m thrilled for All My Children & OLTL fans that the shows seem to b making a comeback online. Nice job guys:) 4 those asking, I’m not sure if I’ll be part of the new AMC. I’m lucky to be working these days, so I’m working on the scheduling:) Hope so!”

So, do you hope Cameron can sign on to be with the reboot of AMC? Let us know!

I think it would be good for AMC & the fans, but…please, Ryan Lavery in small doses.

LoL have to agree with that comment – a little of him goes a long way. To be honest, at times the show dragged here and there with the endless triangle of Ryan, Greenlee and Kendall. The show was great back in the days of Kate Collins as Natalie and her crazy “twin” sister Janet – of course that was back in the 90’s but they really really need to get strong actors like Kate Collins and others of her caliber to get the show on track. They cannot just cast pretty faces and center it around those people, we… Read more »

The character of Ryan Lavery – mainly the overexposure of this character was one of the reasons AMC declined in quality so badly these last 10 years.

I wish him continued success – somewhere OTHER than AMC.

So agree with you. The character of Ryan Lavery only worked when Gillian was alive and still on the show….after they wrote her off, he bounced around from woman to woman, ruining each female character he came in contact with. Annie was normal until she got mixed up with Ryan….

Ryan and Zak were the only 2 worth watching on AMC. How do you know Annie was normal – she was a new character. I hope Erica is NOT coming back. Tired of Greenlee coming and going – stay gone too! Give Jack a better part with some backbone – tired of him being Erica’s doormat! Keep Kendall and Bianca. Tad is good. Krystal was good, but they changed her personality – she was great when she first came on.

@ Katie, because when she came on she was a single parent, taking care of her daughter, and she was stable. Ryan pursued her, and soon after she got mixed up with Ryan, the writers turned her into this looney cartoon character. Just like they did with Greenlee when she was played by the other actress, Sabine Sigh she went nuts because of Ryan, when she came back into town and tried to get back with him….which led to that whole horrible story of kidnapping Spike and him ending up deaf from the car accident. Or how Madison North got… Read more »

I hope Cameron can fit AMC into his schedule. I am sure scheduling/rounding up all of the original actors might be the toughest hurdle, but I trust it will all work out. I am happy to see that so many were able to find work, which is most important, but I am hopeful many will be able to be involved in AMC and OLTL again!!!

I can do without Ryan Lavery showing back up into Pine Valley…..The last few years of AMC were ruined by too much exposure of Ryan Lavery and his buffoonery.

One of my least favorites, and so many have signed on, but not him. Is he fishing? If so, small doses of him would be in order.

I am not sure what Prospect Park is trying to do. First, I hear they are trying to get the younger crowd well these actors are all over 40 if not 50 in some cases other than Lindsay and Jordi. Nothing agains tAngie and Jesse but both actors are over 50 it seems with limited budget young african americans would be better suited. Susan Lucci is needed for continuity at the very least and she was or is AMC. Even a limited role she atleast helps the show gets PR and is a big part of the branding of AMC.… Read more »

Would love it if he can do the reboot. Ryan was one of my favorites. If they can’t get more of the original cast who played central characters to sign on, the reboot probably won’t last. So far they have Dixie but no Tad, Zach but no Kendal, David, Jesse and Angie. Erica and Adam are recurring, which is at least something. JR is a recast and the other cast members signed on, honestly played background characters.

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.
