Breaking news this morning out of TV Guide! All My Children’s Jacob Young who has been playing a very drunk JR Chandler as of late has made a decision to not stay with the series when it debuts online via Prospect Park.  Instead, the Daytime Emmy winner is heading back to his original soap opera home, The Bold and the Beautiful, reprising the role of Rick Forrester!

And as AMC castmate Debbi Morgan before him, ( she is set to debut on Y&R after AMC closes down on AMC) Young will be seen on September 26th for the first time on B&B, just a few days following the September 23rd ending of AMC.  Smart move Mr. Brad Bell!

Here are a few interesting excerpts on Jacob’s decision to leave for his BOLD family!

Jacob on how the deal came to pass to bring him back to B&B: “Brad Bell approached my management and asked if I’d be interested in returning because he wanted to see the character really come to fruition. He assured me that Rick will return with some very heavy involvement. It was always at the back of my mind that I’d love to return to this role. It was my first part on television and the fact that Rick’s still around is almost too good to be true. To go back and make the role my own again is a real thrill for me. I’m eager to work with Katherine Kelly Lang [Rick’s mother Brooke] again. We had such a great rapport when I was younger. When they suddenly aged Rick and gave me the part she was, like, “I’m too young to have a kid this old!” That was when I was 18 and now I’m almost 32. [Laughs] I can’t wait to go back and bust her! ”

Jacob on his concerns that if Prospect Park debuts AMC online in January it needs some significant help to keep viewer interest: “It will take a lot of advertising to bring awareness that the show has moved to the internet and to keep interest going during that gap. Also, this idea of the show moving to a Hulu-type [platform] is confusing to a lot of people. I took a little poll of my mother-in-law’s friends — all of them watch AMC — and almost none know what Hulu is or how that sort of thing works. But these Prospect Park people are very credentialed and they told us they’d been developing a Monday-to-Friday serial of their own when AMC and One Life to Live were cancelled. Their take was, “This is exactly the format we’re looking for. It has a built-in audience. Why don’t we buy the rights, buy the sets, lease the building and see how it goes?” Hey, it’s the future. Even if they lose money on this, it’s the pioneer effort that will pave the way for everybody else.”

Jacob on telling the folks at AMC…he is out of there!: “The other day [AMC creator] Agnes Nixonwas doing an appearance on our show and [exec producer] Julie Carruthers said, “Agnes is looking for you. She wants to say hello. She says she also wants to give you a spanking!” But Agnes, in addition to being a genius, is a lovely lady. She understood. When I found her she was getting her makeup done. I said, “Agnes, how are you?” She said, “Well, I’d be a lot better if you [weren’t leaving]. Nah, it’s okay. I just had to put that dig in there! You’ve been so great on the show and we’ve been lucky to have you.” I think everybody understands.”

So how do you feel about Jacob choosing to go to B&B? Excited? Or, would you have preferred to see him on AMC online? Let us know!

NOOOOO! I hate B&B but I love Jacob Young! I wanted him to stay on AMC or come to DOOL at a Philip recast. They have way too many characters on B&B now so he will most likely get wasted. Good for him though for getting picked up.

I am all for him coming back if it means less air time for the characters Liam, Hope, Steffy, Thomas, Dayzee, Marcus! And maybe we could like Amber again if they revisted that relationship. I wish he would now put Winsor Harmon back on contract and I can maybe start watching again.

kay killgore, I am agreeing you for the second time today. Yes, bring back Winsor Harmon full time. For me, B&B really would cook if we could step away from the near-incest couplings. Hello!? It’s LA. The family is all over international fashion. Can I see some racial and ethnic diversity? Some politics? Some Hollywood? Some education?

Jacob has brought years of enjoyment and entertainment to All My Children, & I must say, I do hate for him to leave. He seems as though he had some doubts and decided to pull out because of them. It’s called “job security.” Can I blame him? No! A cast member can always be replaced. We got use to Jacob as JR, we can get use to another. My hopes are that in the future, after all is settled online, and a new JR is needed, maybe Jacob will then consider coming back. It will be good to see him… Read more »

WATCH: Judith Light in Pink’s New Music Video ‘All I Know So Far’

Now this is a music video! Last night, Pink dropped her music video for her latest single, All I Know So Far.  In it, Pink looks back at her life.

The video features her husband, Carey Hart, their two kids, 9-year-old daughter Willow and 4-year-old son Jameson, Cher, and former OLTL alum, and two-time Tony and Daytime Emmy Award-winning star, Judith Light (Ex-Karen Wolek).

The video directed by Grammy winner Dave Meyers, starts with Pink asking Willow if she wants to hear a story before bed and from there the video turns into a fairytale-esque story with plenty of drama.

 

Light portrays Pink’s mother in the video in the heart-stopping dramatic fashion and with moments you would expect from her.

As Pink shares her story with her daughter she sets-up the story in the video: “Once upon a time there was a girl who was nine. She liked to be alone, thought she was all grown. Think you got attitude and sass? Doesn’t hold a candle to this bada**. She was fueled by her anger, and anger was her fuel. She hated her family and everyone at school.  Sometimes she’d go crazy, psycho, unhinged. Usually when her mama went off on a binge. She had no direction, she was always so stressed. All she knew is that she didn’t want to be like the rest. This is my story, it’s mine to tell, about how I learned how to break out of my cell. There’s only one way you can truly live free, it lies in the power of when ‘I’ becomes ‘me.’

The song is featured in Pink’s upcoming documentary by the same know All I Know So Far set to debut on May 21st on Amazon Prime Video. Meanwhile, Pink is set to receive the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards on May 23rd.

On Saturday, Light shared on social media: @Pink what a joy & privilege to be in this powerful new video w/ you & @cher This story of transformation, facing even the most difficult challenges, & being a mother who shares w/ her child her journey & truth about herself! Magnificent”

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”
