Now here’s what we are talking about!  This is fantastic news that we all suspected was in the works from last month’s appearance by Josh Duhamel on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. It started when Ellen posed the question if Josh was coming back to All My Children to reprise the role (he won his Daytime Emmy for) of Leo du Pres, former loverboy of Greenlee Smythe played by Rebecca Budig.

Well, exclusively today EW.com has revealed it is confirmed that Duhamel will be back in one, or maybe two episodes reprising the role of Leo this coming August.   And in doing so, Duhamel comes home and pays homage to where he got his break in show business.

In story, if you recall, du Pres supposed died in 2003 falling over a waterfall. His body, however, was never found — which left open the possibility that his character would return to Pine Valley.

Duhamel was nominated for four Daytime Emmy awards for his time on AMC; he won for outstanding supporting actor in 2002.  So what do you think of a Josh brief return before we say our goodbyes to the folks in P.V?  Let us know!

This has me soooo curious about where they’d go with the story now, since Greenlee & Ryan aren’t actually married & Leo and Greenlee were touted as the love of each other’s lives before the show went with Ryan/Greenlee. And I love Josh, so this should be pretty cool too see!

I’m happy that “Leo” is coming back….but it’s all so bittersweet…….I don’t want the show to end…….so bringing these veteran actors back to say goodbye, is sad to say the least.

I always wanted them to do this but two episodes isn’t nearly enough to explain why he’s been gone for so long and see him properly reunite with his family.
I have waited too long for Greenleo reunion to have them ruin this.
Hopefully things work out

I wish he could do more than just “one maybe two episodes”, but I’ll take anything at htis point, so long as I get to see him come back for “Greenlee”! It would be a total waste if one of AMC’s greatest couples EVER weren’t reunited for good! In other words, they have to ride off into the Pine Valley sunset together!!! (It will be well worth the long wait of nine years just to see the absolutely AMAZING chemistry between Josh and Rebecca again! They just radiated heat off the screen!) Actually, they should do a film together. Really, they’re that good! 😉

Even if all Leo does is return to give Greenlee closure or perhaps intervene secretly on her behalf somehow, I will be happy. I’ve missed Leo. And I will miss ALL MY CHILDREN. As I was with GUIDING LIGHT and AS THE WORLD TURNS, and am with ONE LIFE TO LIVE, I remain stunned this legacy program is about to end. Although it has not been as compelling to me in recent years, overall this serial (AMC, I mean) has been very good for its run.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

PASSIONS Reunion Documentary To Screen At Universal Studios For One-Night Only

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
