Jacob Young, who made the decision to rejoin The Bold and the Beautiful as Rick Forrester come this September, when All My Children ends it’s network television run, spoke with Soap Opera Digest, where the conversation gave many a bit more insight into Young’s decision to not stay with the AMC when it heads to the web!  Here are a few interesting excerpts!

Young on feeling happy and sad at the same time over his decision: “Michael Knight [Tad] called me at home yesterday. He wanted to tell me congratulations, but I told him, “You know, I feel in some ways like I’m turning my back on people.” And he goes, “No, no, don’t feel that way at all. You gotta do what you gotta do.” He just kind of gave me that nice congratulatory speech and told me it’s the right decision, so that was good. You know, it’s very good. I’m happy. I will miss All My Children dearly, but it’s time to start changing.”

Young on his final few weeks of taping at AMC and what to look for from JR Chandler: “These last couple weeks now, it’s all winding down onto JR and it’s a real, absolute honor for them to entrust that kind of responsibility to me as an actor and give me something really meaty that I can really go out with a bang with. I promise, for myself and for the audience, I will be putting everything I possibly can into those last episodes to make sure that they are the most powerful and impactful shows that I’ve done since being on the show. It’s going to be really good. Everybody is working on that level; I know all the actors feel the same way. Everybody has been really putting their best foot forward through this whole thing. You think it would be a really sad place but the morale has been really strong and positive.”

Jacob a warning beware of Brad Bell he talks a good line but in six months he will run out of story for you, just like he has for tons of actors. And we will go right back to over the hill Ridge & Brooke! So have a backup plan!!!

As the soaps sink, it’s every man for himself. I am not blaming Young. It seems to be the nature of economic survival these days. It’s sad life has been reduced to this.

omg!! i got tears in my eyes just reading this article – i love jacob so much as jr & i really hate to see him leave this role but the bottom line is jacob has to do what he needs to do for himself!

he is an awesome actor & if things don’t work out on b&b he will land on his feet somewhere else.

Good on B&B for snatching him and as long as they keep giving him good material, I’ll be happy. I hated how the writers screwed JR in a corner in the last few months before Lorraine Broderick took back the helm of the show. I also hated that we never got proper closure on the JR & Annie storyline. I hope B&B treats him better than AMC did in a lot of its run.

Jacob’s performance the last couple of months makes me think he deserves the Emmy. He has been wonderful and I wish him all the best on B&B. I think he made the right decision.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
