Josh Duhamel returns to TV in the new CBS drama series, Battle Creek which will make its debut on Sunday night, March 1st (10PMET/PT).

In it, Josh plays a charismatic FBI agent with a dark side named Milt Chamberlain.  The series is one of the most highly-anticipated of 2015 not only because of Duhamel, but because Battle Creek is from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, and is executive produced by David Shore, who was responsible for the hit drama, House!

In a new interview feature, and the cover story of the February edition of CBS Watch! Magazine,  Duhamel explains why he wanted to make sure his new TV character was not just a pretty boy, but had quite the dark side to him, too!

And the actor discussed his hard knocks and big breaks that led him to his success in motion picture and television including: his first major role that of Leo Dupres on All My Children. The role would win Josh a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2002.  Here are a few excerpts from the interview below:

Josh on landing his first acting gig on All My Children: “That was really exciting.  I was pretty green, but I took it very seriously.  I remember telling myself, ‘This is sink or swim. You’ve already abandoned the idea of a dental career. You’d better succeed. ” (Laughs)  I wanted to break the mold of what people were going to expect of me on the show, try things that were outside of the box, and when I got the Emmy nomination my first year, it was like ‘Holy s***- they like me!  They really like me!'”

Josh on what was his Sally Field moment winning the Daytime Emmy: “It really was.  It was like ‘F*** you, former football coach, F*** you, ex-girlfriend I found in bed with one of my teammates. F*** you, all those people who didn’t believe in me!’  Totally unhealthy, but that was the fuel that drove me. I had a lot of anger.  I’m a much happier person now.”

Below watch Josh’s Daytime Emmy winning moment from 2002! Then let us know what you thoughts of his comments to CBS Watch! And, if you are excited to see him in the premiere of Battle Creek!

Ah, that’s when the Daytime Emmys really were the Daytime Emmys. All the glam, all the gowns, great clips and a large enough field of players that the awards really meant something. And how cute was Josh Duhmel running up to the top to hug his family? I was a fan from his early days and going from the crowd reaction a lot of others were as well. I wish him well in his new venture.

Josh Duhamel was loaded with talent and notwithstanding… his brother , played by Vincent Irizarry and mother, Marj Dusay !

AMC hit the motherlode on this trio…. pulled out all the stops and transfixed the audience

along with so MANY of the finest actors to treats and feast

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.
