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!

It will take time to develop into its’ new era ..

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 🙁

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
