You can’t have Pine Valley without Opal Gardner there! And the folks at Prospect Park knew that too! Now although fan favorite Jill Larson (Opal) had been already announced as joining the revival of All My Children, Larson posted a very special video message to her fans with the help of Soap Opera Socialite Productions!

The message taped on January 23rd was just posted online over this past weekend on January 26th and in it, Larson details that in just 32 days, she and other cast members will be gathering in Stamford Connecticut to begin shooting new episodes of AMC.

Additionally,  Larson points out that come April fans should be seeing the new episodes online, which confirms what OLTL new co-head writer, Thom Racina had alluded to previously in a facebook post.

So if you do the math, it would be 32 days from January 23rd when the message was posted for when things will kick-off in terms of projected production of AMC.  Watch Jill’s message after the jump, and then let us know what you thought of it!

Love her and this was very sweet of her to post. I sure hope they announce more actors soon so we can really look forward to this. Why have we not heard a word about Rebecca Budig or Eden Riegel or Walt Wiley?

Walt Willey had said on his fb page that he was not asked by Prospect Park to come back and Susan Lucci has a scheduling conlict – she is committed to a prime time show something to do with Divas and Maids

I see no reason why Susan Lucci couldn’t do it part time. Her show is starting soon so they must have filmed most of the episodes. Who knows if the show ill even make it past the first season because some shows are not doing well and then the networks cancel them. Anyway, the show needs Erica and Jackson and also her two daughters and Jack’s daughter Greenlee.

This all just keeps getting better and better! And I think we can live without LaLucci if we have to. Would like to see Susan back, but so many key players are getting on board, I think the show will do great regardless!

So glad that Opal will be back. Hopefully Susan/Erica will be able to come back, what is AMC without Erica? But I’d also love for Tad and Dixie to be back full time also.

Want to see Tad,Jack,Jake,Krytal.Greenlee ask to.eed as many as the orginals as they can get.Sine they have a baker now they can afford good quality soaps.They change it nd phase these stars out I will not watch for a cheaper younger version.Didn’t fight all this time to make a different soap.

They will have to do some re-casting of roles, whether fans like it or not – they can “write around” Kendall for a while and they can “write around” Erica. But many of the actors have moved on to other projects. As long as they have the basic actors they will be able to maintain a semblence of what Pine Valley was ~ but fans will have to accept new actors, even if it’s on a temporary basis. I think there have been four Bianca’s by now, they can re-cast that role surely once again and other supporting roles but… Read more »

“Mistaken opinion”? Classy.

Actor Jacob Young who played J.R. from (I think) 2003 – 2011 is currently not available due to being on another daytime drama. So, I heard that they are
re-casting the role of J.R. ~ an important role as he is Adam Chandler’s self-destructive and not always so likable son. I think that we can expect to see many
other casting changes, but if they are competent actors assuming the roles I think it would be acceptable to fans over time.

YES IT WILL , HE’S ON B&B, AND MANY ACTORS CAN BE RELACED ITS HAPPENED BEUCOUP TIMES ON MANY SOAPS IF NOT ALL !! J.R. WOULD BE A GREAT ROLE FOR ANY YOUNG ACTOR!! LET’S HOPE THEY CAST WELL !

I am suspecting that either Tad or Erica was the shooting victim and is in a coma. Opal would be at the bedside of Both. Later when SL or MK are available then they can wake up. Remember SL didn’t first appear in 1970 until a week later.

Cute…. she was right and smart to say sequal….

her energy is so bubbly…

too much expectation… let it be what it is….

(my soap stars are employed!!!)

i want to believe – that no word on Tad – The big Prize! The icing on the cake, if you will….

And to hear that Agnes Nixon is directly involved?! That’s the icing on the cake, baby!!! HAPPY DANCE!!!!

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
