Jordi is one of my faves and certainly a favorite of the “newer” cast members of AMC. I was really starting to like him with Kendall too but of course I love Zach. I had not realized that 4 of the 5 cast members who have already signed on are doctors! They have more docs on AMC then they do on GH lol!

Excellent news!!!! I am thrilled with Jordi’s signing, as well as each of the other four cast members who have already signed on for the AMC reboot. There is major star power there already, which is great, and I wish all of those who have signed on, lots of good luck. I look forward to enjoying both AMC and OLTL again. Keep those great actors and actresses coming!!!

He is OK, as are the ones already committed. But if there are no Martins, it won’t be All My Children. And Erica, of course.

I’m glad to see this. AMC needs its vets, for sure, but it also needs to invest in solid actors of the younger generation to take the story forward. He and Lindsay Hartley are very hopeful signs that PP is doing just that.

Now, get MEK on board, and Cady, please.

And let’s see Peter Courtlandt, either the old one they let go or a TALENTED recast. And never let the name or memory of “Caleb Courtlandt” darken the streets of Pine Valley ever again.

Happy about Jordi, but even moreso about Lindsay and Vincent. That’s a family I really want to see take shape! Little brother is just a nice addition. 😉

I am hoping that some of my fvs come back. Tad, my ll time fav. I like Ryal and Greenlee but hope it is not just them and the Slaters again. Don’t get me wrong, I want to see them too just not all the time. Tad and Dixie, Ruth and Joe (as often as they can) Cara. Jake and his family, But Tad< I wanna see my Tad!!!!

This is exciting! I loved Griff as a character, and he really did get jipped on his love life. Hopefully Rebecca Budig can return and be paired with her. Possibly, maybe even someone new?

I have to say without Tad and Erica as lengendary characters this isn’t really AMC. David is a huge part now. focussin on Cara and her brother smacks of eye candy but while internet focusses on young viewers if AMC wants to capitalize on their branding Lucci and kniht are key even if they are recurring roles.. EVeryone will have their opinion as to who they like or want but love or hate them MEK and SL are pivotol to AMC. Otherwise it really isn’t AMC 🙁

One very special guest for soap fans will be that of Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, All My Children).  As everyone knows, Carol Burnett was a huge fan of All My Children and Lucci, and eventually got a part written just for her when she appeared not once, but three times throughout the daytime drama’s run on ABC as Verla Grubbs.  The character turned out to the daughter of Langley Wallingford (the late Louis Edmonds).  Burnett appeared in Pine Valley in 1983, 1995, and 2005.

In a statement on the big soiree’, Burnett shared: “I’m so excited NBC decided to throw me a birthday party and invited all of my closest friends. I can’t wait to look back at so many wonderful moments throughout my career, I feel so lucky to share this night with everyone.”

“This special is going to be the best party ever,” said Mark Bracco, executive producer and president of Silent House Productions. “It will be an evening of music, comedy and dozens of big stars paying tribute to the one and only Carol Burnett.  We look forward to everyone at home celebrating right along with us.”

Viewers will see some of the funniest and most memorable moments of Burnett’s legendary career including moment from the acclaimed sketch comedy series The Carol Burnett Show.

So, looking forward to the special honoring Carol Burnett’s legendary career? Hope they bring up her role as Verla on AMC? For now, check out this scene featuring Carol, Ruth Warrick (Phoebe) and Louis Edmonds from All My Children, and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

TONIGHT: AMC Alum Jonathan Bennett in Hallmark’s First LGBTQ+ Led Rom-Com ‘The Holiday Sitter’

In Hallmark’s first holiday movie offering featuring a same-sex love story at its epicenter, Jonathan Bennett (ex-JR Chandler, All My Children) not only stars, but is the project’s executive producer.  And, on Sunday night, when The Holiday Sitter premieres at 8 p.m. EST, it’s a big deal.

After much outcry for Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas programming block to be more inclusive, the channel is now poised to be on the right side of history.

The set-up of this ‘meet-cute’ rom-com goes something like this: Sam (Bennett) who is a workaholic has to ditch his Hawaiian holiday plans when he is asked to watch his sister’s children (his niece and nephew).  However, when Sam becomes overwhelmed, he gets a helping hand from his sister’s neighbor, Jason played by George Krissa. And within a blink of an eye, Sam and Jason find they are both unattached and attracted to each other, and Christmas becomes a lot brighter for the two of them.

As for Bennett, he previously appeared in Hallmark’s 2020 film, The Christmas House which was the channel’s first holiday movie to include a same-sex storyline. He later returned to that role in last year’s sequel The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls.

Bennett told USA Today on tonight’s milestone Hallmark holiday tale: “What’s so special about The Holiday Sitter is that it’s the first time we’ll see two men meet-cute and fall in love at Christmas. We tell a story that’s really important, so people that are watching it feel seen when they watch it. But just like Christmas is for everybody, The Holiday Sitter is for everybody… It just happens to have two men as the lead.”

Hallmark Media’s Executive Vice-President, Lisa Hamilton told Deadline: “We felt that it was time for a story with a gay couple. We are really trying to make it so that everybody sees themselves when they tune in. We are trying to stay true to the Hallmark brand values, one of which is inclusiveness. It’s a true of Hallmark cards, which has a card for every kind of occasion. In the past, there was a focus on one particular kind of love story, and I think everybody thought, ‘wow, we’re not telling the whole story here.’”

The timing of The Holiday Sitter comes after Candace Cameron Bure received much backlash for her sentiments when she told the Wall Street Journal that the Great American Family network in which she stars in several of their holiday films, will “keep traditional marriage at the core” and never do stories/movies featuring same-sex couples.

Check out a preview for The Holiday Sitter below.

Now let us know, what do you think of the Hallmark Channel finally featuring a gay love story for one of its holiday films? Will you be checking out the landmark movie? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
