Well, you really can’t do a reboot of All My Children without Dr. Angie Hubbard now can you?  With that said, there is more great news for soap fans this afternoon. Daytime Emmy winner, Debbi Morgan has announced via her Twitter page that she has signed on for the All My Children reboot!

As has been reported, Debbi joins previously announced commitments from Vincent Irizarry and Lindsay Hartley to be a part of Prospect Park’s online venture in resurrecting the beloved town of Pine Valley!  What’s even more delightful about the news is that today mark’s the anniversary of All My Children, which first aired on ABC, January 5th, 1970!

Morgan tweeted the news of her joining the cast of the reboot stating,  “OK, I can finally announce how thrilled I am 2 B on board w/the “All My Children” re-boot & Prospect Park! Agnes Nixon, you’re my HERO!!!”

So soapers, are you excited that Debbi has signed on for AMC online?  Let us know!

I’ve been dubious but Debbi Morgan… that’s some serious soap cred there. She’s as close to dependable soap royalty as it gets. Staying cautiously optimistic …..

HUGE get! And a much wiser choice for her than when she chose YR over AMC (though I can’t blame her for it….and it gave her a year’s paycheck she wouldn’t have had otherwise, but ultimately it was not a good fit for her).

I made the decision today that if this all goes through, and it will be provided in Canada, I will pay for AMC and OLTL in support of the shows. I never thought of actually going through with it before, but decided that if it does, I want to be a part of it.

This is great. It does sound positive. But it will seem really strange, odd, almost un AMC if they cannot get Susan Lucci. Hopefully something can be arranged with Deadly Affairs and Devious Maids that will allow Lucci to do all. If there is a conflict at the beginning and because AMC may want to start while Lucci is filming Devious Maids they could always kill off Ërica Kane and Jesse who is on Y and R. Have a very sad funeral and bring her back later when she is free claiming there was a huge cover up of a… Read more »

Debbi–Agnes Nixon is MY hero, too. I can’t believe she’s made this happen.

It just amazes me how delusional some hardcore AMC/OLTL fans are about this, especially after the first go-round. There is zero concrete proof that this is 100% going to get off the ground and unless/until it does, I remain highly skeptical. PP has zero credibility with this. How about actually hearing some direct quotes from a PP executive for once?

Prospect Park execs are likely not saying much until there’s more to go on. But judging by Agnes’ words, I do believe it’s launching off the ground. More cast signing on is likely another factor into that it’s happening.

The first time there were no EPs/HWs/actors signing on. Now there are.

Chris, I can appreciate your skepticism, but I don’t think it’s necessary to label people “delusional” because they’re perhaps taking a more optimistic view than may be ultimately justified. This could still all collapse, it’s true–but on the other hand, it has gotten much further than it did when the idea was first floated, and if Agnes Nixon has come out and announced that it’s happening, she must feel the chances are pretty good. I think the bigger question probably is whether they’ll return in a form that will satisfy viewers. I think AMC is in a better position for… Read more »

I can’t help but think back to my first major cancellation … and that was ATWT… I wanted to go to the Snyder Farm … and see Emma…. and Just Holden! that family, from Seth to Iva, Ellie,Caleb, Holden, Meg… I’m sure, Emma’s missing a few… she rolled in the hay… some…

anyway… that’s my optimism…. for AMC.

This is fantastic news. Maria Arena did not excute her plans with Debbi as Harmony well. There was huge potential with the character and Debbi’s acting talents, but she mis-used them and there was no fixing them.

I cannot wait to see Dr. Angie Hubbard go back into rotation with her eyesight and beautiful baby girl!

could you see her involved with Dr. David Hayward? Debbi and Vincent killed it…knocked it out of the park…. she brought a humanity to evil Dr. Hayward that sizzled. when she was blind… he could have toyed with her… yet he told her he respected her.

I loved how these two were in the last month(s) of AMC on ABC….

No. I could not nor would not want to see a relationship between Angie Hubbard and David Hayward. That’s so wrong.

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.
