This morning on Good Morning America, the series special Entertainment Correspondent, All My Children’s, Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery) brought to the show a terrific piece on the legacy of All My Children as it prepares to say goodbye to its 41-year-run on ABC next week. In the segment, Cameron is seen saying goodbye to Susan Lucci, touring the set, we see his first screen test, and multiple clips of Pine Valley throughout the decades. At the end of his segment, Cameron made an announcement that some of the stars of AMC are very close to signing on the dotted line with Prospect Park with a a few more details to be worked out.

Mathison stated,  “I have been given permission to announce that I and others from All My Children have been approached by the company, Prospect Park, who bought AMC with the intention to move it online. Just as soaps were very pivotal in the transition from radio to television, they will be right in the thick of things again in the transition from television to the Internet.” Mathison added that while there are a few more details to be hammered out before any contracts are finalized, “it’s looking very good.”

As we are just seven shows away from the series finale, it all seems to be catching up on us, doesn’t it? Hard to believe, that this much lauded and historic show will soon be off network TV. Watch the GMA segment with Cam, after the jump!

Extremely sad to see my favorite soap come to an end on TV. Disliking ABC/Disney immensely now. Do not plan on watching The Chew. Not a fan at all! ABC ends on my TV on 9/23/11. Also looking forward to picking up All My Children onlline. A NEW BEGINNING is about to come. I was there for it in 1970 and I’ll be there for it in 2012!!!

Look at all of the time you wasted.

You obviously are not a soap fan. Maybe you spend your time on things we think are wasteful to us. Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to it. If everyone were the same this planet would be a very boring place. Just a thought.

Quite frankly, I could care less if Cameron Mathison stays with AMC. I was kinda hoping that he would disappear from the canvas….but no such luck. PP is gonna have to sit down and do some serious thinking about who should be on that casting list. There have been some major flawed decisions, when it comes to the AMC, in my personal opinion. Starting with THE WORST RECAST IN DAYTIME, Jamie Luner as Liza Colby….not to mention the young lady who plays her daughter. I want some smart decisions made, when it comes to the cast. Go back and look… Read more »

The show went downhill in the last few years. The past few weeks reminded me how good it WAS and hopefully it Will BE.

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
