Sheila Carter’s (Kimberlin Brown) legal troubles are bringing with it some soap opera favorites to The Bold and the Beautiful.  First, Joe Lando (ex-Jake Harrison, One Life to Live, ex-Byron Sully, Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman) who previously appeared on the CBS soap opera, is reprising his role of Judge Craig McMullen.

Lando had appeared as Judge McMullen back in 2018 to preside over Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill’s (Don Diamont) custody battle over their son, Will.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Lando first appear on the Monday, January 9th episode.

With Bill perhaps having some leverage on the judge, especially since McMullen was persuaded by Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) to rule in Katie’s favor in the custody hearing, might he pull some strings to make McMullen rule in Sheila’s favor? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Sheila has lawyered up! Look for former Passions star, Rodney Van Johnson (ex-T.C. Russell) to play her attorney.

Johnson told SOD on his new role on B&B: “I was offered to come play in their sandbox … which is just amazing!”

Look for Rodney to first appear on Monday’s January 9th episode, as well.

The actor previously appeared on Port Charles, The Young and the Restless and in numerous primetime TV roles.

So, what do you think of Joe Lando and Rodney Van Johnson coming to B&B to see, or not see, that justice is served in the case of  Sheila Carter? Comment below.

I love Joe Lando from way back, so I’ll take him in a Judge’s robe or without but I’m unfamiliar with Rodney-Van-Johnson only his probable name sake, the gorgeous Van Johnson from back in the day, red haired and freckled.

On second thoughts, I can’t believe Joe Lando would agree to such an unbelievable, assanine part.

The only good thing this show has going is I adore the friendship between Taylor and Brooke. Krista and Kelly just play off each other so well. I think it’s a great storyline these two women finally grew up and realized the issue between them . Kudos to whoever wrote this

It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.
