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,… Read more »

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.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
