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.

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

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.
